    ALL-NEW X-MEN and X-MEN are very good comics, but they also read exactly as I'd expect X-men comics in any point across time to read. There's nothing inherently wrong with that, but what I love about UNCANNY X-FORCE and X-MEN LEGACY is the audacious nowness of both titles, the feeling that these are the X-men of 2013 – the hurting and lost X-men, with values that are changing and ideas that characters feel too afraid to explore. The X-men aren't really about Jean Grey or the Phoniex or Rogue smashing things or sentinels or viruses, they're about the startling and terrifying rate of progression the world currently sees itself in, and how we can possibly react to it. Despite the fact that it doesn't even feature a team of X-men, UNCANNY X-FORCE #8 feels more like an X-title than any other book I read this week. Read Full Review

    In the end "Uncanny X-Force" does suffer in comparison to Remender's wonderful run on the book, if only because in his hands Psylocke once again became a fascinating and complex character, one you couldn't help but root for and mourn for as tragic events spun out of control. In Humphries hands Psylocke is as thinly drawn as possible, she is written as shallow and cruel, whiny and confused -- and ultimately impossible to like or enjoy. As a fan of the character I had hoped renewed creator interest in her would nicely rehabilitate her, now I'm wishing she would just get put back in the toy box so that things don't get worse.
