The Hellions can barely keep from killing one another, let alone find a way to fit into Krakoan society. Of course, that might be just what Mister Sinister is counting on when he sends them to clean up his messes.

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Dispatchdcu Jul 22, 2020

    Its new and its unique to anything Marvel is putting out right now while providing that extra spark to add some spirit to the X-books. Its an excellent addition to the X-MEN titles and Zeb Wells feels like a great fit. HELLIONS is a comic I truly didnt know I wanted or needed but I simply cant wait until next month's issue to wet my whistle. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L Jul 22, 2020

    Overall ‘Hellions’ is shaping up to be a really fun book and definitely is what the x-line up needs. If you like a darker book with a lot of humor then pick this one up. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge Jul 22, 2020

    Though the length of time between these first two issues has been frustrating, I truly think Hellions #2 was worth the wait. Chock full of wonderful, darkly wacky character moments, a rich team dynamic, and story hook that continues to pay out dividends (now made even more richly complex thanks to Pryor's return), Hellions #2 continues to be wholly it's own thing and by doing so, absolutely stands out amid the Dawn of X pack.

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Jul 25, 2020

    Hellions has been a book that has taken me by surprise. Zeb Wells has done a great job of reeling in readers and keeping them guessing. The pencils and colors couldnt have been better this issue. Hellions is a book that shouldnt be missed! Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jul 22, 2020

    Stephen Segovia knocks it out of the park with the art. From the first panel with the Hellions strolling up to the police to the final shocking panel in the issue, Segovia makes every visual moment shine with detail. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jul 22, 2020

    Hellions #2 is a fantastic issue. While it moves away from the weightier aspects set up in its debut, it entertains delivering a lot of action and some laughs. It's been a long wait since the first issue but it's been more than worth it. Read Full Review

    All of the ingredients for an excellent run are still present after a very impressive debut in the spring, and they mark Hellions as a potential breakout series that any skeptical Marvel fan should consider adding to their roster post haste. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Quinn Jul 22, 2020

    The characters are written wonderfully and the tumultuous interactions between the members of Hellion represented well. The plot is picking up quickly and the creative team is handling this team of misfits beautifully. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Jul 22, 2020

    Hellions #2 is a gut-punch of a comic. The pace is quick and brutal. Wells doesn't waste a lot of time getting to the action, but he's still able to do some nice work with his characters, balancing things very well. Read Full Review

    A solid action issue hints at just enough tidbits of mystery to make this more than just any other comic. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Christopher Rondeau Jul 27, 2020

    This isn't the strongest series to come up with the X-Men revamp but the themes are rather engaging. I love the darker tone that is coming out of this and X-Force and I enjoy most of the characters that are being featured in this series. At the very least, I will be picking up the next issue to see if they can continue the momentum. My fear is that the middle issues are going to be much of the same thing and not bring anything new to the table. Read Full Review
