    Maybe I shouldn't get hung up on the continuity. The story is pretty straightforward, with the good guys fighting the bad ol' government guys - but it just all feels like familiar ground. Read Full Review

    Still not a big fan of the art in this series. You'd be hard pressed to find a panel where someone doesn't have their mouth open. In one panel Logan and Sabertooth are in a helicopter. The next they're on the ground with no evidence that time has passed. There's another instance where everyone is eating inside Logan's cabin (There's literally a panel of Victor Creed eating a big sandwhich. That actually happens) and then Logan gets mad and suddenly they're outside, yards away from the house. Later,Magneto throws a tire at Wolverine, but unless there was some kind of metal in that tire it makes no sense at all. Just like this whole series. Read Full Review

    The best that can be said for The First X-Men is that it doesn't simply dump a handful of X-Men: First Class movie elements into the franchise, as many were expecting. Its problems are uniquely its own. Read Full Review
