    CIVIL WAR II: X-MEN provides its own conflict outside of the flagship's disappointing argument. Whereas Tony Stark and Captain Marvel bicker back and forth, the X-Men fear for their own people's future at the hands of potential Inhuman manipulation. It hits all the character beats, never feels overcrowded, and looks pretty enough to keep on entertaining. Tie-ins rarely get as good as this. Read Full Review

    The chess pieces get moved a little bit in issue #2 to make the conflict a little more interesting, but in a four issue arc, it's hard not to wonder if it's still moving a bit too slow. The teams seem to be drawn as far as who is on who's side, all that's left now is the fight we know is coming. Read Full Review

    The opening and occasional artistic hiccup aside, this is a good X-Men book that feels like it's building toward something meaningful. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Chris Jul 11, 2016

    This truly is Magneto's book.  You can tell that Bunn has a great affection for the character, and an intrinsic interest in exploring the sometimes skewed views of morality he holds.  During the Magneto scenes, this book shines.  The rest of the issue, however, pales in comparison and feels like unnecessary filler... just putting the X-Men in their place and giving them something to do between the Apocalypse Wars and the Death of X.

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jul 7, 2016

    With this mini-series now half over, it's becoming clear that Civil War II: X-Men isn't actually going to deliver the massive X-Men/Inhumans conflict that readers have been waiting for. It reads more like a prelude to something bigger, with a surprisingly sluggish sense of pacing for a book that numbers only four issues. Read Full Review
