    Messiah War was ultimately a letdown that will be remembered for bolstered the sales of Cable and disturbing the flow of X-Force during an amazing arc, and perhaps little else, which considering where the tale of Hope Summers began, is a little sad.

    "Messiah War" will undoubtedly go down in X-history as the slow, impaired stepchild of the infinitely better "Messiah Complex," and X-Force #16 is perhaps the worst installment of all. As I said when I started this review, by all accounts X-Force should be back to its usual form next month, unencumbered by a crossover, but there's very little reason to buy this issue if you're looking for anything approaching competency.

    Save your money and skip X-Force #16. Also, do not even consider picking up the Messiah War trade if you have been waiting for that. Read Full Review
