• When someone is targeting the lucky for death, it won't take long before the luckiest X-Man, Longshot, is in the killer's sights. But things quickly go from bad to worse as super heroes, villains, all of S.H.I.E.L.D. and even COSMIC ENTITIES have it out for our boy!
• Is Longshot finally in over his head, or can he beat the odds and save the Marvel Universe when no one else can?

    Longshot is a goofy character. He's got a goofy new haircut. This is a goofy comic. And that's why it worked for me. Read Full Review

    "Longshot Saves the Marvel Universe" #1 is a fun story concept that has some enjoyable moments in it, like winks to Longshot co-creators Ann Nocenti and Art Adams. With the pieces unpacked from the crate and the story set in motion, Longshot now has a chance to show readers how to be lucky and have fun doing it. Hastings and Camagni have the chance to pull it together. Hpoefully they'll focus a bit more on Longshot and make this a series worth remembering. Read Full Review

    It's a shame that Longshot's big solo title for this year was not as great as it could have been. This is hardly going to bring the character into any spotlight, at least not a further one than he had with Peter David's "X-Factor." Nope, it seems Longshot will be forced to live in obscurity for another few years. Read Full Review
