    IvX is building momentum again as the big finale looms. While the series is still lacking a certain visual punch without Leinil Yu at the helm, the plot receives a major adrenaline boost in this issue. Between several enjoyable character confrontations and a heavy focus on shifting alliances, this issue takes full advantage of the complicated relationship between the two teams. Read Full Review

    For now, I am very happy that the story is offering or at least speculating at alternative hypothesis. It brings a level of refreshing honesty to the conflict and a caveat for approaching most conflicts in general, it is really nice to have that here. Read Full Review

    Inhumans Vs. X-Men #5 definitely could have been better as there seemed to be no true point to taking out the Inhumans when there was no sure-fire way to keep them where they were. It all came off as some way to set them up for the right fights. They were hit and miss though hopefully they make all of this worth it with Inhumans Vs. X-Men #6 next month wrapping up the crossover and showing us what plans Marvel really has for the mutant's future in this universe. Read Full Review

    Anyway, I'm optimistic for IVX #6. Maybe it's that Leinil Francis Yu returns to handle the art, but more likely, it's that we can finally put this unnecessarily dramatic chapter of X-Men history behind us. Read Full Review

    Although Inhumans vs. X-Men #5 isn't exactly full of surprises, it's a serviceable issue that moves the narrative forward. Read Full Review
