    This is the first time in decades that the potential matches, if not exceeds, the excitement surrounding the next generation of X-Men stories to come. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Dispatchdcu Oct 9, 2019

    Hickman proves once again what great planning, organizing, and calculated detail can create. He answers every question and wraps up both relaunch series masterfully while establishing an ambitious theme as the story evolves forward for years to come. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Oct 9, 2019

    Hickman is a master craftsman, and this issue shows it. The art team does a great job once again, taking Hickman's script and bringing it to life. Powers Of X has always felt like a supplementary book, and this issue certainly has that feel, but it adds just enough to the overarching narrative of both books to make it unique. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Vishal Gullapalli Oct 9, 2019

    Powers of X #6 is an excellent conclusion to the opening salvo of Hickman's X-books, leaving many questions unanswered and a lot of room for the ongoings to move. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Oct 9, 2019

    The inevitable truth came, and it was quite the tough pill to swallow. Will that be the case with this timeline? Or this be the timeline where the mutant race conquers the truth which holds a grip over their future? Who knows! But that is what now captivates us to this new dawn of the X-Men. Powers of X #6 gave us a lot to look forward to when the X-Men have now have their future in their hands, and everything will come down to what they are willing to do to keep it. Read Full Review

    411Mania - Jeremy Thomas Oct 10, 2019

    In truth, Powers of X #6 is less of a climax to the story than the denouement. Last week's House of X #6 was the true climax inthe final establishment of the mutant nation and the celebration thatfollowed. With this book, we learn what pitfalls and risks come next,and as we leap into the Dawn of X things are just as exciting for X-Menfans as they've been throughout these two conjoined books.

    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L Oct 9, 2019

    Overall this was a great final issue to lead into the next chapter of the X-Universe. It tied up loose ends, answered some questions, asked a few more, and really got me excited for ‘Dawn of X’ which starts next week. Hickman’s X-Men is exactly what we needed, and things are only just beginning! Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Cody Walker Oct 9, 2019

    Admittedly I was not an avid X-Men fan, or a regular reader of any mutant titles for that matter. The extent of my X-Men knowledge was mostly learned from the 90's animated series, but Hickman has me hooked. He has hinted at so many possibilities for the future, and I'm excited for all of them.

    Graphic Policy - Brett Oct 9, 2019

    While I'm excited as to where this all goes at the same time it feels like the heart of the X-Men has been ripped out from them. They have often reflected the socio-political reality of the time and here they take on the role of the bad guys, nationalists fighting for dominance due to a perceived superiority. And much like those nationalists in all reality they will lose… when Moira dies down the road and this is all rebooted again. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Oct 9, 2019

    This has been an incredible journey so far and if this couldn’t get you onboard for what’s coming, I’m not sure what will. Hickman’s work can be knotty and difficult at times, but pushing a 50+ year old franchise forward is no easy task - especially a franchise as mired in nostalgia as the X-Men. That said, Hickman is finding inspiration in the stories that came before. He’s trying to piece them together. He’s trying to make everything relevant because he knows how frustrating it is for fans to see their favorite characters and concepts tossed aside by a new creative team. Ultimately, House of X and Powers of X landed exactly where it needed to - it set up the next bunch of stories and said to readers, “Welcome to the X-Men. Hope you survive the experience.” Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Oct 10, 2019

    With Dawn of X on the imminent horizon, the final issue of Powers of X remains true to the ethos of previous issues, in so much that it manages to recontextualize plenty of what's come before in addition to paving a road towards a bold, new future. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Oct 11, 2019

    Up next is Dawn of X and then we will get the newly relaunched X-Men title on October 16, 2019. Hickman has done an amazing job re-energizing the X-Men franchise. I am sure that Hickman's X-Men #1 is going to be a monster seller. Read Full Review

    The Beat - Joe Grunenwald Oct 9, 2019

    As the culmination of a total revamp to the X-line, with storylines spread across multiple timelines and time periods, I honestly think Powers of X #6 might be flawless. It's a fantastic end to what has felt like a truly unique journey. Read Full Review
