    Comicosity - MJ Feuerborn Feb 13, 2015

    Overall this was a great issue, well worth its cover price and a testament that team books do not have to rest on the shoulders of just one character, even when narrated by one. The buildup of tension was genuine, and with Wilson's wise use of every character she employs, this book is no doubt going to continue strong writing with the X-Men instead of just about them.

    Geeked Out Nation - Draven Katayama (loudlysilent) Feb 11, 2015

    Wilson is a fantastic writer, and it's unfortunate that this issue could not have been expanded into two issues. Psylocke could have had more exploration of her power set or even her backstory, and Storm could have tried (and failed) to exercise her powers in a more visual way. The visual highlights, though, especially Jubilee's styleand Psylocke beating up monsters, look great. Read Full Review

    So far, G. Willow Wilson's X-Men arc doesn't show the same unique voice and flair of her Ms. Marvel series, but she fits in perfectly well alongside previous writers like Brian Wood and Marc Guggenheim. Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Marcus Orchard Feb 13, 2015

    Although this isn't a bad issue, it struggles with consistently and an uninteresting story. Fortunately the great characters help to make it worth a read. I have a feeling that Wilson will find her way in this series, she just needs to find the right story to complement the great character moments she creates. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Julestrue Feb 14, 2015

    This issue completely sold me on what Wilson's run is gonna be like and I'm completely on board. Like some of my fellow Outrigt Geekers(is that a thing? I've been away too long.) I love her work with Ms. Marvel and think this is gonna be one of those runs that lay tons of the kind of character work we will debate for a while. If you like the X-Men this is a good one. What I should say If you like Psylocke, Storm, Monet, and Rachel Summers(Grey I think now?) this is your book. Because true X-Fans know its not every X-Title, its the one with your favorites Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Feb 13, 2015

    After a middling opening chapter featuring Storm, G. Willow Wilson's X-Men follows her underground for an issue from Psylocke's perspective. From the first line Wilson's narration has promise, "When I think of myself as Psylocke instead of Betsy, sometimes I get overconfident. Someone called Psylocke obviously knows what the score is at all times." It's cute but it tells us something interesting about Betsy Braddock. Unfortunately this concept isn't really raised again.
