    For me, there is no such thing as a perfect comic book. However, this story was engaging and caught me off guard. I cannot wait to see what they do with the character. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Jan 6, 2021

    Juggernaut #5 closes out this amazing mini-series with a pitch-perfect ending. Nicieza finishes his redemption arc for Juggernaut and lays the groundwork for a new future for the character. Hopefully, this mini-series sold well enough for the story to be continued because Nicieza has done some stellar work with the character. Garney will hopefully continue to whatever comes next; his art in this issue is good but not his best. All in all, Juggernaut was a great mini-series that took a different look at a fan-favorite character and set him on a new path. Hopefully, fans will get to see more of his journey. Read Full Review

    It's fair to say that a lot of thought, care, and love went into this book and the end results are fantastic. Read Full Review

    Fabian Nicieza and Ron Garney's new series comes to a mostly satisfying conclusion, wrapping up an unexpected and moving narrative featuring the titular villain turned do-gooder. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jan 9, 2021

    This little mini-series goes out on a strong, character-based note, though not the note I expected at the start of the series. Still, the whole thing is worth a read. Read Full Review

    Juggernaut #5 wraps up the arc in a neat little bow, answering most of the mysteries and setting up the potential for a Juggernaut team to convert the wayward. The art has been excellent all through the arc, but while the big questions get answered, the answers were less than satisfying. Compared to the first issue, this was a mediocre ending at best.

    I just find myself enjoying Marvel's Villain series more than DC Comics.

    A little bummed they split up the duo but the emotional build to decel announcing herself as a mutant paid off for the most part.

    What an ending. This has done a great job of setting up Juggernaut as such a dynamic character going forward. I hope this is not the end because I quite liked this take on the character and it definitely feels like his story is far from over. The only critique I have is the art, it looks cool and pops in the actions beats but when it slows down for the character beats it tends to get a little uneven. Recommend this if you want a great Juggernaut story with fun action and stronger characterization.

    Was that the end of an arc or the series ? The book kind of dragged opposed to past issues, but lifting D-Cel's story from Jean Grey's origin in the Dark Pheonix flick peppered with an urban touch was not a bad idea. Damn, can't believe Outkast is now considered old school.
    I will miss her comedic relief should this series continue. Other than that seeing how Juggernaut gets treated by the mutants is annoying , but the bully eventually gets bullied.
    Action was there , set up for the next arc was there ,and had a unique emotional drive fueled by both comedy and tragedy. Here's hoping the story continues, as much as D-Cel gets voted into the new X-Men ...

    After breaking into the superhuman prison, the Dungeon, Cain finds his back against a wall. Their only hope of getting out of this is for D-Cel to embrace her status as a mutant. But doing so would mean D-Cel coming to terms the fact that the manifestation of her mutant powers killed her parents. With Cain by her side, D-Cel declares herself a mutant and requests asylum on Krakoa. Later, Cain’s half brother, Charles Xavier and fo more

    Juggernaut busts into the ominous Dungeon prison, has a chat with the Warden, and … doesn't do anything to curtail his operation? Oh well, at least D-Cel's story gets a happy Krakoan ending. This is a frustrating way to finish a series. A great status quo for ongoing adventures comes together, but instead, we're done. This issue's storytelling felt very "cruise control"-y, though. The Warden gets it the worst; instead of a credible antagonist for further stories, he's just hot air and an utterly forgettable visual design.

    Eh, this was fine, but pretty weak as an ending. It felt rushed.
