    Wood, Buffagni, and Sandoval have upped their game with this issue. This is not only one of the best recent issues of X-Men, but one of the best issues of any X-Men title, including Bendis' two titles.

I have been genuinely delighted at the direction the story has taken and I think the new writer has been given the tools to really turn this book into a consistent winner. I give this book a very enthusiastic 9/10. My only complaint is that when things don't go his way, the Future becomes painfully whiny. Read Full Review

    The details might be lacking, but nobody gets mischaracterized and nobody does anything that completely undermines their established personality. X-men #16 certainly feels like an X-men comic, albeit a very disorganized and underwhelming X-men comics, but it doesn't feel like the same X-men comic that had been built around this powerful, all-female cast. Like hippie protesters, it tries to do too much and only ends up next to nothing. Read Full Review
