    Overall, this is another strong installment of Messiah Complex. This story-arc keeps me guessing and wanting more. The big reveal at the end of this issue is worth the cover price as it crushes many of the most popular theories behind this story. Read Full Review

    The art stumbles quite a bit, and yet I'm thrilled with this issue. This was the turning point in the event for me, where it went from "solid" to "fantastic". Now that some things are clearer going forward, I think it's clear the momentum is about to heat up. "Messiah Complex" isn't just one of the best X-event in decades (that's not saying much), it's one of the better comic book events period. Read Full Review

    All in all, Messiah Complex might just be one of those rare events that actually lives up to its massive amount of hype. Color me surprised, but thankful. Read Full Review

    X-Men #205 keeps the ball rolling on the Messiah Complex story arc. This story has been a blast to read. If you haven't been reading the Messiah Complex issues, then I definitely recommend getting this story when it is released as a trade paperback. It is well worth your money. Read Full Review
