    Uncanny X-Men #28 was fairly short, but does more than enough to get you anticipating what comes next now that Scott's intentions are more clear, and Magneto weigh's in on the situation. Anything can happen, and surely things will only get worse before they get any better. Read Full Review

    And that's what makes Uncanny X-Men #28 so great " walls break, mountains crumble, and history repeats itself in cruel ways. In a modern X-Men world, is Cyclops the new Magneto, Beast the new Moira MacTaggert, and Magneto the new Professor Xavier? I still consider Bendis the X-Father because of his ability to set these stories on edge by pushing elements to extremes and bringing history to bear. A conflict between Magneto and Cyclops opens wounds, and the expectations of what's to come make me excited for the next issue. Read Full Review

    This is the first issue to explore why readers should really care about this new character and what he represents for the franchise. Needless to say, it marks a major improvement for the arc. Read Full Review

    Overall, other than the very, very slow storytelling, the issue is not that bad at all. Magneto'sappearance at the end is cool, but it also gives me less hope on the story actually moving forward. Hopefully we will find out what Professor X's last will and testament is really all about soon. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Nov 22, 2014

    It's another strong chapter in this ongoing saga, though I think I've lost track of how long we've actually been in this storyline. It never seems to end. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jim Johnson Nov 24, 2014

    Anka's symbolic cover featuring an imposing Magneto doesn't seem to foreshadow any of the events shown inside the issue, but upon completion its relevance is made clear. While the storyline passing through "Uncanny X-Men" #28 is still lingering as a tie-in from the concluded "Original Sin" event, this particular chapter is one of the stronger ones. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Nov 21, 2014

    If "The Last Will and Testament of Charles Xavier" was an event maxi-series, this would be Uncanny X-Men's tie-in issue. By and large, this issue is fairly inessential, but Bendis gives us a look at Cyclops' revolution and puts the X-Men's emphasis back on teaching in a rather beautiful fashion, literally, thanks to Anka. I'm not sure I can give this issue a blanket recommendation, but I encourage you to consider it against your own tastes, especially if you're a fan of Cyclops, mutant philosophy, or Professor Xavier.

    Comicosity - Anthony Blackwood Nov 25, 2014

    Yes, this issue is essentially one very long recruitment scene but one that reveals a lot about the lead character's motives and thus, at long last, gives readers a clearer image of what this book is all about. It's long overdue and it's a tad bit underwhelming but for the first time in a while, I trust that Bendis is ready to handle Cyclops and the rest of the X-Men with the boldness they deserve.

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Nov 30, 2014

    I'm happy to see Magneto's return but sad to learn that he appears to be at odds with a move that could take the X-Men, and the series, to an entirely new level. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Nov 19, 2014

    Uncanny X-Men #28 is a pretty good issue with some decent art. We get to see Cyclops really extend himself to another mutant and continue his crusade to help those in need. Brian Michael Bendis continues his run with consistent character moments and quality story telling. Kris Anka has turned in better performances than this, but it was by no means a terrible issue art wise. Uncanny X-Men is by all means the premier X-Men book and will continue to be that way as long as Bendis pens the title. Read Full Review

    This arc is showing some growth for Cyclops. Good story. Decent art. I'm really interested in what is going to happen next.

    The slow burn of the series has started to get to me to be completely honest. Of all of the titles in the X-line I feel this has the most "weight" of any and the events within seem to matter, but the snail's pace of actually getting to that point is draining. Some more momentum on the part of Cyclops but the narrative seemed to be slightly quickened and out of character...although it could be part of the overall story as. Anka is a polarizing figure in terms of art. Some people really enjoy his work, others will find it lacking in areas. I personally am not a fan of the lack of detail and the X's on faces but it does still convey the story and is clear so that is a benefit. Overall, the series is still one of the strongest in the line but it is teetering on the edge of becoming just "good".

    The last time Magneto was on a cover of this book, we got a issue dedicated to him. That issue was one of my favorites. I expected the same this time, however, I was highly disappointed. This is truly a Cyclops' arc and throwing Magneto into it wasn't a wise choice.
