    I really felt satisfied after finishing this issue. It was one of those issues I knew was coming and pretty much knew how it was gonna go down, but felt a huge sigh of relief when done. Cyclops may not be a favorite but there character has been a very integral part of the X-Story, and this issue was an integral part of his story. Its def worth picking up, even if you haven't touched this title its a good Cyclops issue. Also love the cover. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Mar 28, 2015

    The issue lets us see the human side of the team of mutants, and settles some long-simmering issues. Best of all, it's loaded with some actual humor - something we don't see enough of in this series. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Mar 25, 2015

    Uncanny X-Men leaves you very eager to see what the future has in store for Cyclops and Havok in the Marvel Universe. Everyone else as well when it is hard to imagine just what they will turn to now that the revolution is no more. In fact what the revolution really is, is the biggest shock you could take from a threat which puts the fear of god into both the Avengers and SHIELD. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Mar 25, 2015

    Dialogue-driven issues aren't generally artist Chris Bachalo's forte, as we saw at times in the previous arc. However, Bachalo handles this script well. His stylized approach does its part to keep the energy level high despite the somber tone of the story. Read Full Review

    Good Kind Of Geek - Nikki Yuan Mar 26, 2015

    Overall, this is a decent issue that serves as a break before the next story arc. We finally get a answer what Cyclops' revolution is all about, and it's good to see the Summers brothers bonding. It's a bit sad what's become Scoot and Emma, but it's something that has to be done. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Mar 28, 2015

    The time has finally come to wrap up this amazing, ongoing Cyclops Saga, and Bendis kicks off the first issue of this climax with his usual skill. Now we understand what Cyclops has been up to, and he could literally go anywhere from here. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Matt Little Mar 30, 2015

    Alex and Scott have both fallen hard in recent times and their ability to finally find comfort in their own bond -- a ray of hope on the horizon of the series -- is a great place to leave this issue. Scott looks to Alex for answers for the first time in his life and finds that asking for help isn't a sign of weakness but a true sign of leadership. Hopefully, through re-establishing his relationship with his brother, Scott will begin to allow his self-loathing to settle enough to realize that an open hand can help the world more than a closed fist.

    PopMatters - Jack Fisher Mar 31, 2015

    It's a meaningful, relevant story. However, it's poorly organized in the sense that it doesn't transition smoothly from one moment to another and it glosses over a few details. It also isn't going to qualify for a pay-per-view event in terms of action. This story is all about personal drama and while some of it is overdue, most of it still feels meaningful.

    The Latest Pull - Bobby Angus Mar 25, 2015

    There is another cliffhanger with this issue as to what is to come next. However from solicitations and the next cover it seems Kitty and Magik will be the stars. Don't get your hopes up though as we seen in the past with Bendis, anything is subject to change. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Mar 26, 2015

    As this series winds down, things are starting to take shape for many of the mutants. Its a shame we dont get more time though, Bendis was starting to do some interesting things with the characters. The art wont knock your socks off, but its serviceable. This particular issue was a little on the depressing side, but being a mutant isnt always sunshine and margaritas. Read Full Review

    Hyper Geeky - ClumsyG Mar 26, 2015

    I'm left disappointed overall with Uncanny X-Men #32. The cover is probably the most compelling thing about the issue " it depicts Cyclops standing over slain versions of himself, the one survivor. I'd much rather the issue pushed Cyclops to go out with a bang, taking up the mutant revolution on his own. Freed from the entanglements of subplots and side stories, we finally get to the meat of it all as the embodiment of Professor Xavier's dream shows the world what one mutant with a purpose can do. Instead, Scott Summers falters and then relies on his brother to pick him back up. The mutant revolution becomes a buddy story, and I find myself just waiting for this chapter to finally just end.
