    Comic Crusaders - Kevin Given Dec 19, 2017

    Pak and Cinar are the perfect team for this title. We see just enough humor injected into the story to keep us entertained and yet when the action finally heats up we're given a battle where the stakes are innocent human lives. Sabretooth makes a gruesome discovery about their opponents and the secret of their fearlessness the twist at the end of this issue will make us want the next issue ASAP! Read Full Review

    I was pretty hard on Weapon X the last time I reviewed it, but this issue shows that there is still quite a bit of life in the series. While this issue isn't particularly deep or thought-provoking, it is a good bit of fun with a cool team of heroes who get along in an entertaining way. I can recommend that, and you should feel free to check it out. Read Full Review

    This is a series that has consistency on it's side and if you're a fan of darker Marvel titles, Weapon X is worth a read. Read Full Review

    This title has an abundance of riches with its artists, now it just needs to give them a more compelling story to render. Read Full Review

    If you havent read Weapon X yet, dont pick this book up. If you stuck with Weapon X through the entire Weapons of Mutant Destruction storyline then youre like me and too stubborn to drop it and this book probably wont tip the balance for you. But dont get excited for it. Theres nothing jaw-dropping about it. Read Full Review

    This issue wasn't very good. The story was not compelling. The characters weren't written well. The art is the best thing about this book.

    Pak has not been good to the main cast. Domino & Sabretooth are caricatures and Lady Deathstrike is just a prop. All of these are problems throughout the series. But Domino & Sabretooth's characterization is bleh.

    Going into the caricature I mentioned with Domino. The entire opening scene, she's obsessing about money and brings up robbing banks three times to get some. Since when is Neena a common bank robber? Warpath gets a distressed message from an acquaintance in Santo Marco, which sets up their next mission. With that, Domino is excited because Santo Marco has a bank that's notorious for drug money they could get. Neena has been reduced to a money-fetish.

    Next is Sabretooth. In this chapter, Creed complains the team is boring because all they wanna do is hunt monsters and not kill them. Since AXIS, Sabretooth has been a good guy. But Pak just made him evil again. Creed is also an assassin, criminal mastermind, hunting & stealth expert, in addition to being a former CIA operative with numerous years of combat training. He's also shown to be able to work on a team and cooperate with others if need be. But Pak ignores all of that and just has Creed around to cause trouble, be hard-headed, and act stupid. This chapter shows it once again. Sabretooth is nothing but an idiot. When they get to Santo Marco, he doesn't listen to anybody & just goes off half-cocked. He charges right into a building of enemy soldiers, runs right into traps, and gets torn a new ass. Numerous strikes for Pak on making Sabretooth into a dumb brute.

    Pak didn't seem to know or care about these characters before he started writing them. In addition to how contradictory he is with Warpath's random powers based on whatever the plot needs. Pak hasn't done any of these characters justice.
