    I liked this book. It was pretty well written. I loved how easily Unit smacked around the Extinction team. I guess there are some threats that even they cannot handle. I also enjoyed the exchange between Captain America and Cyclops. It definitely set the tone and the mood for the upcoming AvX event. Read Full Review

    Overall, this book is exactly what I hoped it would be. It is entertaining on its own and it also provides as a great lead-in to the summer AvX event. I cannot wait for the next issue. Read Full Review

    This is the first issue of this new volume of Uncanny X-Men that I have truly enjoyed from start to finish, with the story and artwork both being excellent. This was a great read, and what I was waiting for from this title and its creators. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - James Hunt Apr 16, 2012

    Where this issue excels, though, is in its treatment of the X-Men as a soap opera. Multiple subplots get advanced, new ones are created and there's a sense that the story moves on even though the villains are dispatched. There's no reset button ending and no happily ever after. It's probable that the developments of this story will reverberate through Gillen's "AvX" tie-ins, and that only makes them more intriguing. Particularly when you see that final panel.

    So, kind of a mixed bag here. Not a must-buy, especially if you're already picking up the AvX comic - this is just a sidebar to the event. Read Full Review

    IGN - Poet Mase Apr 11, 2012

    On the positive side, Gillen has created a delightful interplay between Cyclops and Agent Brand in which the mutual assured destruction of their blackmail mirrors the portrayal of Unit as a weapon of mass destruction. Also, I'm really curious to see how Unit might act as a catalyst for a possible major change to Hope's character. Thus, the upshot of this issue is that there are a few teases of things to come, but the contents of this week's offering are largely without memorable developments. Read Full Review

    Unit is turning out to be one fascinating character as he has some helpful information for Hope Summers. Theres also an interesting conversation between Cyclops & Abigail Brand, commanding officer of S.W.O.R.D. Written by Kieron Gillen & illustrated by Carlos Pacheco & Paco Diaz and a in-your-face cover by Adam Kubert. From Marvel Comics. Read Full Review

    To conclude, Kieron Gillen's run on Uncanny X-Men so far has been hampered by stilted conclusions to well developed arcs, and this is no exception. There are some gems to be found in this issue, but most of it feels like the issue is only biding its time before the Avengers Vs. X-Men crossover hits the pages next month. Read Full Review
