    Things now really seem to be coming together and finally it feels like the X-Men we have known and loved for all these years are back. I highly recommend this book and series to any x-fan and anyone wanting to get into the X-Men. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Peyton Hinckle Nov 21, 2018

    As with all comics, there are a lot of problems with UNCANNY X-MEN #2. Jamie Madrox is probably the biggest one. Still, there are also a lot of positives. With a series with as much weight as UNCANNY X-MEN, the writers are doing a good job creating a well-paced story with a diverse cast of characters. Creating a weekly series isn't easy but Brisson, Rosenberg, and Thompson are making it look as if it is. Read Full Review

    Silva has some great art in this issue and the action scenes are amazing to view. The art has an amazing flow with the pace of the story. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Jamie Lovett Nov 21, 2018

    With all of the attention-seeking stunts of the first issue out of the way, the second issue of Uncanny X-Men -- drawn by RB Silva, an unsung hero fo the X-Men line -- moves at a much steadier pace, giving its large ensemble cast proper room to breath and readers something to latch onto.

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Nov 28, 2018

    The writing team throw more fuel on the fire in Uncanny X-Men #2. The art is solid but uninspired and the story hits some nice notes, building up its central mysteries rather expertly. Theres also a lot of instances of good character writing and humor that doesnt seem lame or forced. The first issue was good, yet safe, and used concepts that have been a tad bit overused in the franchise. This one introduces some new things, and, while it still feels safe, theres also definitely room for things to get crazy later on, especially with the big return at the end of the book. The art could use a little more flair, but this is a satisfying comic thats building an intriguing mystery. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Steve Batley Nov 22, 2018

    This isnt Mojo Worldwide story, which was just homage fodder with no longer lasting implications. This is refocusing and redefining the X-Men. A mammoth undertaking that is already shaping up to create ripples that will have far reaching implications for the future. Ten weeks is a long time to wait, but its beginning to become worth it.

    Sequential Planet - Marcus Orchard Nov 21, 2018

    Uncanny X-Men #2 picks up from the previous issue well. It carries over all of the enjoyable aspects but brings a few new problems with it as well. Fortunately, it succeeds in presenting an entertaining and diverse ensemble cast, with some fun moments sprinkled in. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Nov 21, 2018

    Uncanny X-Men #2 keeps the pace and energy level of the massive introductory issue. This is truly the ResurreXion we were promised by Marvel a year ago. That first batch of Gold and Blue books was an appetizer, now we're back in serious business! Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Nov 24, 2018

    Uncanny X-Men seems to confuse throwing crazy crap at the reader with legitimate mystery. It's somewhat entertaining crazy crap, but the lack of even a hint of answers is more detriment than excitement. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Jon-Carlos Evans Nov 25, 2018

    Following the still unfinished Extermination mini-series, "Disassembled" continues the trend of tidying house " less doppelgngers, clones, and timeline refugees. This is a welcomed move after the descent into bottom shelf mediocrity that was X-Men Blue. Some of the recent changes, however, still feel random and unmotivated. Psylocke, for instance, feels very generic and blends into the scenery of most scenes after reverting to her original Anglo body and abilities. The story continues next week. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Nov 22, 2018

    Uncanny X-Men #2 was an improvement over the debut issue of this series. The opening few pages of this issue does stall the progress of the story that was started in the first issue. Luckily Ed Brisson, Matthew Rosenberg and Kelly Thompson quickly recover as Uncanny X-Men #2 progressed to show the team tackling multiple conflicts at the same time. That along with an intriguing end gives "X-Men Disassembled" the much needed interest that it was previously lacking. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Nov 26, 2018

    All this set-up thus far has been nothing groundbreaking, though still promising considering where the co-writers have taken other X-books. Hopefully we won't have to wait too long to see what this foundation is in service of, and considering the relaxed pacing of the book thus far, when it arrives hopefully it won't have to be raced through in order to fit it all in by the end.
