    ULTIMATE COMICS X-MEN continues to build on itself more and more, adding more and more shocking revelations while not losing the character focus that has made the series so special. If rumours of Wood leaving the book prove to be true, I'll be confident to say that he'll be leaving with what may be the best ULTIMATE X-MEN run of all, having truly fulfilled the promise of seeing what it would be like for mutants in our nasty and painful world.

    Artist Mahmud Asrar makes another excellent showing with his simple-yet-effective style. I'm still not loving Kitty's solid white shirt with no details drawn in, but aside from that every other character design looks top notch. There's a nice simplicity to it all. No one wears a costume or a mask. They're just refugees with the bodies of supermodels. Read Full Review

    Once again, ULTIMATE COMICS X-MEN has another fantastic issue. Wood is such a strong writer and he truly does an incredible job with these characters. He can take a bunch of mutants, in the desert, hanging out, one of the most interesting books at Marvel. The creative team here is also fantastic, and the final reveal page is incredibly cool. I wasn't too keen on Kitty's shirt being a flat-white though, but that's my only real complaint with the issue.Overall, I highly recommend this issue and this series. Read Full Review

    If there were two things that stood out most throughout this series, it's Kitty needing to solidify her place as leader of the mutants and preparing for the inevitable war to come. This is her moment and everything she worked towards is on the line as she not only is dealing with the army, but the rebel mutants and Jean Grey. It was Jean who we finally see make her move as she now wants Kitty to succeed. Up to that point she hated Kitty because she believed that Utopia was no better than Tian. What her end game is after she does her part is unknown, but just by striking the army, even with an EMP, she could start up a fight that will no doubt end in violence. Overall we still don't know what to expect when so many have their own agendas, but that is what Wood accomplished which makes you want to know how it plays out for each side. Read Full Review
