    Brandon Peterson gets an action heavy issue to deliver, and he's a pretty solid artist when it comes to capturing the intensity of the action, from the scene where Bobby is gunned down, to Warren's ever impressive arrival. I also enjoy the scene where Dazzler makes her arrival at the battle as her slacker approach to the high intensity action is amusingly reflected. There's also a great visual where Warren wings emerge out of Rogue's back, and the last page makes for a pretty effective closing visual to the issue. Also while it's a generic poster shot, the cover image is a lovely piece of art, and at least it reflects the stars of the issue. Read Full Review

    And after four issues of buildup, Mister Sinister (with two handguns) fights a dozen X-Men (with SUPERPOWERS). Jeez, I wonder whose going to win (0 out of 5 bullets). I was so floored with how weak that was that words escaped me. Instead, I grabbed one of Brandons panels for reference and drew Wolverine giving me the finger very juvenile on my part, but it felt right at the time Im sure Ill regret it later. Read Full Review

    As a non-X-Men fan, I was entertained by Ultimate X-Men #49. Though not necessarily hooked, I was impressed enough to consider trying a back issue or two. Read Full Review

    Sinister kept referring to Lord Apocalypse; it appears in this telling of the X-Men mythology that Apocalypse has resurfaced and is trying to build his Horsemen for worldwide destruction. It appears that either Fury doesnt know about Apocalypse or just doesnt want anyone else to know what he knows about him. Either way, theres trouble a-brewing for Issue 50. Read Full Review

    Overall a disappointing end to a lacklustre arc, I enjoyed it to a point, but it left me feeling empty. Again, it wasnt bad it was just average. Read Full Review
