Magneto leaving the council means big shoes need to be filled. Selene demonstrating her foot size by crushing the whole island beneath it is unorthodox, yet compelling. Can the Quiet Council resist?

    This is a wonderful, brilliantly constructed issue, in a series that promises to be among the best X-stories ever told. I just can't wait to see what happens next. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth May 25, 2022

    Immortal X-Men #2 is the total package. Gillens writing is brilliant, and the art from Werneck and Curiel is beautiful. This is pretty much the premiere X-Men book, and its only two issues in; it shows a creative team hitting on all cylinders, presenting great art, plot, and characterization. This is the flagship book, and no one can say otherwise. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond May 20, 2022

    Immortal X-Men gives the readers such a deep and great (also horrifying) look into the Quiet Council and how far this group is willing to go in the name of Krakoa or in the name of achieving their own hidden goals. A gorgeous book that makes a host of mostly deplorable characters still somewhat likeable while never letting us forget how awful they can be. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke May 18, 2022

    Immortal X-Men #2 has a good balance of plot development and character work. It's also a strong finish to a two-part story, which is rather bold in modern comics superhero storytelling. But bold is the name of the game with Immortal X-Men and Gillen and Werneck's work here. Read Full Review

    Kieron Gillen is playing all of the hits in these opening issues of Immortal X-Men, but he's playing them well. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Hannibal Tabu Jun 15, 2022

    If you'd like one pulse-pounding installment of Marvel's merry mutants, this issue is ready to scratch the itch. The stakes are very immediate and palpable, and everything you really need to know is on the page. That's hard for an X-Men book, but it's great to see. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez May 22, 2022

    Overall, Immortal X-Men #2 was a solid follow-up to what happened in the first issue. Not everything is perfect here but there is enough done to show why an entire series around the Quiet Council is needed for this phase of the Krakoa Era for the X-Men. Read Full Review
