    As far as a recommendation goes, Manifest Destiny lands in the same ballpark as its Divided We Stand brethren: if the specific characters appeal to you, you'll have a blast with it. But it's hard to imagine the average reader getting much out of the experience. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - James Hunt Sep 8, 2008

    I'm not certain why, but these anthologies seem to work reasonably well for the X-Men when the similarly-formatted "Marvel Comics Presents" languishes in sales hell. Perhaps it's because the property has a wide and diverse array of characters with a tight unifying metaphor in their mutantcy that writers can pick at. Or, perhaps, it's simply that the number of characters in the franchise means that even the obscure picks feel important enough to warrant their own time in the spotlight. That said, the lack of emphasis on the book's format during promotion certainly has the potential to irritate those looking for a complete story rather than a collection of vignettes that tie (often quite loosely) into the current status quo.

    Not sure what Manifest Destiny is supposed to be about, but I don't want any part of it. Divided We Stand worked because it showed us where the various mutants ended up postMessiah Complex. This...thing...is just a waste of money. Read Full Review
