"MONSTROUS" Mentallo has taken over Monster Island and is controlling the minds of all the inhabitants. He already sent Fin Fang Foom to tear apart Tokyo, but what are his plans for the rest? And can three X-Men and one X-Man-In-Training stop a dozen mind-controlled monsters if Emma can't get in Mentallo's head? And if that's not enough, one of the X-Men is changed forever. This is not a what-if, it is for real!

    Well this jumping around between story arcs crap is getting really old, really fast. Just as you're investing into one story, another one shows up to confuse you. If you hate the current story arc, you now have to wait twice as long for it to end. Read Full Review

    Daniel Way's script is a mixed bag in quality. The highlight of his arc is seeing Armor rise to the forefront, as she doesn't seem to factor into the rest of the X-books very often. However, Way doesn't prove as adept with the remaining three X-Men. His Emma is neither as humorous nor as bitchy as she should be. Meanwhile, a handful of potentially strong scenes between Cyclops and Wolverine aren't used to their full potential. In general, once the fun of monster battling wears off, this arc doesn't have much else to offer. It's just as well Way's next issue will cap off this particular story. There doesn't seem to be much life left in this particular Astonishing tale. Read Full Review
