    I am loving the evolutionaries arc in the X-Men. It looks like Yost is expanding the X-Men mythos and pushing its roots millions of years farther back. Way, way cool story. Artwise, there's some to love and some to like, but on the balance, artistically positive. Read Full Review

    There are a few quibbles to be had with this issue. Yost depicts the younger Iceman as a bit needlessly boneheaded. The ending scene also throws much of the preceding conflict into question, as the reader has to question why the Evolutionaries bothered showing up on Utopia in the first place. But these complaints aside, "First to Last" is developing into a fun conflict that doesn't completely ignore this series' goal of integrating the X-Men with the rest of the Marvel Universe.
