    Duggan and Caselli are out here holding back no punches, as they continue their adventure that could spell doom for the entire universe. Duggans giving us a Jean who feels like shes full of gravitas, giving us a deeper look at the woman for who she truly is. No Phoenix force, no life incarnate, no she who burns away that doesnt work, but a woman, with complexities and character. This is the Jean Ive been aching to read. No pretenses, or perfection personified, but a woman who will do anything in order to do what she feels is right. Whether it is right or not is for you to decide. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Mar 8, 2023

    X-Men #20 is at its best when telling the core story involving the growing Brood invasion. Gerry Duggan and Stefano Caselli get over why the Brood are to be taken seriously as a major threat. Unfortunately there are several other storylines that X-Men #20 tries to tackle that cause this to end up being cluttered. It's truly disappointing because the elements are there for X-Men #20 to be a great issue, but the result is a comic book trying to do too much. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Jamie Lovett Mar 8, 2023

    The big battle should be the issue's setpiece, but it lacks the epic punch and vibrant grandeur of earlier installments of the series, feeling faded and by the numbers by comparison. A lot is going on here, and yet nothing stands out. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Mar 19, 2023

    X-Men #20 is not a well-written comic in any sense, but the art is amazing. Thats pretty much par for the course for this book. Read Full Review
