    I am patiently awaiting to see what Mr Sinister is up to. The character was written with so much finesse, under Kieron's Gillen's pen, and the finale of his run set up his intrigue so perfectly. The Sinister / Scott Summer's conflict really hit its peak there , as Sinisterbecame the Red Skull of sorts to Summers' Steve rogers, perfect rivals. Now with the elder Scott Summer's allegedly dead, and mutants on the fast track to extinction, Sinister is no doubt bound to exact some extreme measures to procure and exploit what can be considered is favourite raw (and limited) resource, mutantkind. I had my reservations initially but I can say honestly I am very hooked by this new status quo with the added benefit of the tone hearkening back to that traditional X-Book feel and sentiment that I have missed.

    While EXTRAORDINARY X-MEN #3 may have its issues when it comes to the plot, as well as the characterization of one of its most important characters, it offers superb art, a believable dialogue, and thrilling action with many, many details to fall in love with for X-Men fans! Read Full Review

    There's been some fear that the X-Men would slowly be faded away into limbo by Marvel. While the Limbo part is kind of true, we're seeing a pretty strong start to this series courtesy of Jeff Lemire and Humberto Ramos. Things may be pretty dire for the mutants but that isn't really anything new. This issue is packed with big action scenes mixed with a heartfelt conversation during the strange meeting of young Jean Grey and Old Man Logan. I'm digging this series more and more with each issue and can't wait to see what's coming next. Read Full Review

    Pleasingly, Extraordinary X-Men seems to be beginning to find its feet as we progress and might just be able to course correct by the climax of this first arc into a confident little series that might deal face-first with the franchise's Inhumans debacle. (On the other hand, Cerebra could just keep shooting one-liners and I'd be fairly content.) Read Full Review

    Maybe it'd be a better idea if they were made of ice? Come on man! Ice is sooo much stronger than snow! Read Full Review

    IGN - Levi Hunt Dec 3, 2015

    Jeff Lemire is a nuanced, powerful writer so it's hard to be believe that this book will continue to flounder for long, but for now it's hard to grasp what this book's goal is. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Dec 3, 2015

    This series still hasnt quite found its legs, and, truth be told, it has not been that exciting either. Jeff Lemire better turn out a great issue soon or else fans may flock to Uncanny X-Men. The art has been fine so far, but it would benefit from a little more consistency in some areas. Extraordinary X-Men, so far,has not been that extraordinary. Read Full Review
