    I have no idea where this leaves my favorite X-Man, and I don't imagine this will get much play when he joines Dennis Hopeless' Cable & X-Force book, either. But this is no longer a nice-guy Colossus that can be relegated to the back row of the X-Men class photo anymore. This is a very broken and completely morally compromised man full of anger and loss. So much loss, as detailed in my review of UXM #18. He's not the naive farm boy anymore. I feel really bad for the guy, and I wish Gillen could be the guy showing us what's next for him.

    This issue was enough to make me realise that, as much as I love Gillen's writing on this title, I am actually invested in the characters that make this series the flagship X-Men book on the stands, and convince me that I did in fact want to follow them into All-New X-Men next month. This series had has its ups and downs, but Gillen's run has been overall excellent, with this issue a fantastic point to end on. Bring on Bendis. Read Full Review

    IGN - Poet Mase Oct 17, 2012

    For me, this book is like red Ny-Quil. It goes down a hell of a lot better than it could have, and you know it'll fix things for the future. Now, I understand that companies like Marvel need to have giant events to fund opportunities given to newtitles like Hawkeye, but it doesn't mean I have to be happy about the havocthey wreak with other, more established books. This issue is palatable, but it's not sporting the neatest bow possible. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Oct 17, 2012

    It's the end for UNCANNY X-MEN and Cyclops' Extinction Team. This clearly feels like a final issue as we see several story points resolved nice and neatly. Cyclops and Colossus get some big surprises while the resolution of Unit and Danger's story wasn't too fascinating. It's a shame that this series had to end and I felt it got overlooked at times (by myself included) due to the fact there are/were so many X-Men titles. There are the unfortunate continuity questions with this being tied to AVENGERS VS X-MEN and the CONSEQUENCES weekly title. This issue may be the final issue but it definitely opens the door to new possibilities we'll have to wait to see explored. It was a great run. Let's see what Marvel NOW! holds for these members of the X-Men. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Oct 22, 2012

    Unfortunately, this issue doesn't do much to wrap up all of the loose ends that may have been dangling from Gillen's run or even from the event crossover, but with Marvel NOW! on the horizon, it really doesn't need to. After all, it has been made pretty clear that Sinister will likely face off against the Uncanny Avengers and we've also already been exposed to things that happen to Cyclops after this story. All in all, this issue ends the series with a shrug and low grunt instead of a celebration or a shock ending. In short, the series ends, but the story really doesn't. Read Full Review
