    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Apr 10, 2019

    Marco Faillas art is beautifully detailed and all the characters look great. Hopefully, there will be some conflict in future issues that will give Failla the ability to do more visually. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Bethany W Pope Apr 20, 2019

    In terms of both the story and panel-after-panel of beautiful art, this is an issue to read at once, in a breathless, admiring rush, before revisiting again and again to chew on all the meaty bits. This is an astonishing piece of work. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Peyton Hinckle Apr 10, 2019

    All in all, AGE OF X-MAN: THE MARVELOUS X-MEN #3 did not disappoint. Unfortunately, it also didn't impress. This issue really needed to push the entire storyline into something new and exciting. Instead, Nadler and Thompson chose to focus on characterization over significant changes in plot. Storm and Magneto's characterization is close to perfect, but it doesn't make up for the slow pacing.

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Apr 11, 2019

    As X-Man's control is wavering, Nadler and Thompson are honing in on the things that make the X-Men the X-Men and that's a strong choice. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L Apr 10, 2019

    Overall this is still one of the better series in Age of X-Man. It may seem a little slow moving at times but the story is still really engaging and I'm excited to see what comes next. Read Full Review

    Marvelous X-Men, and perhaps the "Age of X-Man" concept, feels like it's running out of steam. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Apr 10, 2019

    A lot is going on in this issue, but not enough of it feels consequential enough to have any real impact. The aerial conflict between Magneto and Storm and X-Man really should have had an explosive intensity about it as it is one of the few scenes in the series thus far that really speak to the central themes of the Age of X-Man. Too bad it feels so uninspired. Read Full Review
