    This book has reinvigorated my interest in the whole AvX summer blockbuster event because this title seems to make sure these characters in the Marvel universe take an honest look at themselves. Not everyone was good or right on The Avengers and this title looks to explore that. If you were jaded by AvX, but still read it because you didn't want to miss out, AvX: Consequences will give you the vindication you need! Read Full Review

    Effective use of Cyclops being a jerk. Better art. Good cliffhanger. Read Full Review

    The interactions between heroes are so much more interesting than the big events these days, and important little character pieces like this are what carry us through when we get bogged down by hazy plotting. Guys like Gillen can help us make sense of it all. Read Full Review

    It's not often you get a comic that's 80% of two men in a room talking back and forth, and it's even less that you get a great comic from that, but AVX Consequences proves to be the exception. They used the excellent history between these characters, their morals, and of course mentioning Jean Grey to make this conversation draw you in. Cyclops made great points and showed while sometimes cocky, he was the leader for a reason, he's not an idiot. He knew what was going to happen before it did and we see that here, as well as his reasoning for the things he's done, while they can be disputed, he does make good points about Wolverine wanted to kill Hope, and how he inadvertently led to the return of the mutant population. The ending was a great cliffhanger because you have to wonder how a de-powered Cyclops can fare, I'm sure he can fight his ass off, but to say I'm curiously awaiting the next issue is an understatement.

    AVX: Consequences #2 is a superb and emotionally charged issue that any X-Men fan should buy. Recommend. Read Full Review

    Three issues to go and I think this mini-series has high hopes for establishing an interesting new baseline for Cyclops as a character. It will also help to clarify the post-event feelings for a number of characters, as we saw with Wolverine in this issue. I recommend picking this up, even if you disliked the main event. I can't wait to see how Iron Man plays into this for the next issue. Read Full Review

    But regarding Cyclops' fate, I'm assuming he'll live past the altercation and either escape or be released (I highly doubt it's the latter) after the panel at the end of Uncanny X-Men this week. Read Full Review

    I very much suggest getting into this short series, as I will be, every week until the bitter end, in three weeks. Read Full Review

    Hopefully this second issue is a sign of how Gillen will approach the remainder of Consequences, with each chapter narrowing its focus to one group of characters glimpsed in issue #1. Read Full Review

    This series definitely comes directly from what went down in AvX, it'll be most appreciated with the context of having read AvX; but it doesn't seem to really change or shed any new light on those events; this is truly a series to read only if you really care to see what's going on with Cyclops specifically post-AvX, presumably transitioning him into whatever his new status quo will be in the Marvel Now age. Honestly, I'd counsel waiting for the collected volume as this is a limited series, and will probably read much better as a single story than broken across several weeks of story chunks.

    Comic Book Resources - Kelly Thompson Oct 18, 2012

    With the right hand (and I think Gillen can be that hand), "AvX: Consequences" has the potential to be more interesting than the crossover that birthed it. Time will tell if it can go deep enough and ask enough tough questions to make this book more than merely additional "AvX" padding. Read Full Review

    AVENGERS VS X-MEN may be over but there are still consequences to look at and deal with. Some may question whether or not this is necessary but with the number of civilians that died, it's important that this isn't just ignored. We have to hope that there won't be a neat and tidy ending for Cyclops at the end of this series. You have to wonder if there'll ever be an answer as to whether or not 'Cyclops was right.'

    I'm going to keep this short and sweet…don't waste your time. This really is not worth it and isn't adding anything to the overall story. Read Full Review

    This was a really good issue. The confrontation in the jail cell between Wolverine and Cyclops. "$#^*^%# You Scott....#*$^# You....." ***throws the beer can at him**** man that was so spot on. Gillen's the first writer in a long time that's gotten me to like Cyclops again, so I'm glad to see that he's the one who finds a way to have someone finally "tell off" Cyclops (I'm not going to get into the whole 'Cyclops was right' thing - that's an endless debate). Loving Gillen.
