    Generation X #85 is a flawed book but Strain still managed to write a consistent characterization of each of the cast, developed new pairing that doesn't feel forced and kept things exciting. The more interesting part is that she is now starting to focus and address each of the characters issues and conflicts she had built from the start. The saving grace and exciting part of this arc would be the upcoming final showdown between the original Generation X and their former classmate M. Read Full Review

    Generation-X isn't a perfect book, but it's certainly enjoyable. What X-Men fan doesn't love the little guys? The mutants with silly powers? They're an important portion of the mutant population. Hopefully this isn't the last we see of Christina Strain at Marvel. Read Full Review

    Monet/Emplate is suffering some serious schizophrenia, but that doesn't stop her/him/them from invading the Xavier School in a terrifying way. The lion's share of the issue is devoted to soap operatic teen angst and romantic triangle woes in a way that would be torturous if you dropped into it with zero preparation. Since this is a 10th issue, though, Christina Strain is perfectly justified in assuming her audience is committed to loving these characters and she pays off that love in spades. Amilcar Pinna's art remains wonderfully weird. While some of his attempts at emoting miss the mark, plenty of them land in the bullseye.

    This is another book where it's downright *wrong* of the Mighty Marketing Marvel department to claim that more

    This issue was pretty boring for me, honestly. It focused on things that I want too interested in.
