    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Apr 16, 2008

    All in all, this was a great book and if this Divided We Stand series can keep this up, it'll be on my pulllist as long as Marvel publishes it. Seriously, buy this book if you have any interest in X-Men. Read Full Review

    IGN - Iverson Apr 16, 2008

    I am not going to say that the comic is flawless, but I will state that I was drawn in by characters that I don't have much investment in. By giving us (sad) stories of just how out of place each mutant feels without the X-Men, we understand just how important the group was. So, while we don't see any more reason for Cyclops' deformation of the X-Men, we are given proper fallout to Messiah Complex, which is something that was sorely needed. Read Full Review

    IGN - Bryan Joel Apr 16, 2008

    Somewhere in the middle is a Cannonball story, which I don't care one way or the other about, besides being a bit confused by the sudden lobotomy given to Paige Guthrie. But regardless of the shifting quality of scripts, Divided We Stand is a fairly good showcase of talent. I suspect X-Men fans wondering where their favorites went will get more from this offering than the casual reader, but if you know where to look there's a gem or two in these pages. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Steven M. Bari/Christopher Power Apr 15, 2008

    This is worth reading only if you are a die hard fan. Otherwise I would imagine that many of these stories will be retold in recap panels in upcoming issues in the X-universe. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - James Hunt Apr 20, 2008

    Overall, the issue is only saved by the high quality of its contributors. The premise is just too weak, asking us to buy into a disbanded X-Men team while simultaneously being pretty much the only evidence we've seen of it. The mix of characters is heavily weighted towards the lowest-selling X-Men title that participated in "Messiah Complex", which it claims to be following up. I have to admit, in light of all that, I'm left feeling fairly skeptical about the next issue. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - J. Montes Apr 20, 2008

    Ultimately, we don't need a book like this. We don't need to see what the lesser X-Men characters are doing during their time off. There's a reason why New X-Men was canceled: It sucked and so did the characters. This issue does little to prove otherwise. Read Full Review
