    Comic Watch - B. Radtz Aug 31, 2022

    In the event tie in thats not an event tie in, we finally get some much needed character development for Iceman, and Duggan and Villa gave us a little ditty that let Iceman come out to the world, and gave us an example of how real world members of the LGBTQ+ are often viewed, or felt like we need to edit ourselves to make things more palatable for the straight folk. Depending on how Duggan handles this, it could be a cheer or a jeer. Read Full Review

    X-Men#14 was another fun return to form of sorts and had some great, powerful moments. This issue makes you wish the rest of the series had this vibe and hopefully, future issues do too. Read Full Review

    A very fun issue with an unusual take on event tie-ins, this one is worth picking up. The story and dialogue are a lot of fun, the art is getting better by the issue, and as an overall package, this is well worth it. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Aug 31, 2022

    As a standalone superhero comic book X-Men #14 continues the trend of Gerry Duggan telling stories effectively in one issue. This is a great showcase for Iceman and Firestar as they are given major spotlights in this issue. When it comes to being a tie-in to A.X.E.: Judgment Day that part of the story is more of an afterthought. Hopefully once A.X.E.: Judgment Day we get to see the new X-Men team have time to build up their chemistry. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Aug 31, 2022

    X-Men #14 takes an A.X.E.: Judgment Day tie-in about the judgment of mutants and redirects that focus toward Iceman and his sexuality. Yet regardless of your personal stance on the topic at hand, you have to admit that Duggan does some literary magic showcasing the parallels between the two judgments. Nevertheless, I find myself scratching my head wondering why. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Sep 10, 2022

    X-Men #14 isnt terrible, which is pretty good for this book. Its not really a tie-in, feeling like something that Duggan planned anyway. X-Force #31 did the same thing, but it felt better in that book, mainly because Percy is just better than Duggan. The book is a mixed bag, but the good parts shine enough that it overshadows Duggans usual dross. Villa and Milla do a good job, for the most part. All in all, its a mostly entertaining issue that has just enough good stuff to overcome Duggans usual shoddiness as an X-Men writer. Read Full Review

    X-Men #14 suffers, as its predecessor did, for being a tie-in issue to Judgment Day. Read Full Review
