There's a new hero on the X-Men. Who is he? Why is here? And why does Cyclops not want him on the team?

    The issue ends with Cyclops making choices now that Captain Krakoa has joined the team. Cyclops behavior reminds me of his attitude during the Rosenberg run of X-Men. It's hard to believe that it wasn't that long ago that Cyclops was all alone; with the rest of the X-Men seemingly dead. Though the Resurrection Protocols prevent anyone from permanently pushing daisies something is haunting Scott. Will Captain Krakoa serve as a vine to help the X-Men's leader escape his current circumstances? Or ensnare him further? Read Full Review

    Through some non-linear storytelling and subverting expectations, the creative team puts in their best issue yet. It's gorgeous, with smart writing, and some interesting twists and turns for this series and the X-Men line as a whole. Read Full Review

    THE DISPATCHWith this week bringing forth the concluding issue of INFERNO, one would probably choose to be more excited about that issue than X-MEN #6. Truthfully, I would agree with most people in my excitement for the concluding issue of the Hickman era. Nevertheless, my curiosity was still piqued as I wondered who this Captain Krakoa was and why he was suddenly thrust into the series. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - B. Radtz Jan 5, 2022

    This issue throws a couple curveballs at the fans, and leaves you with the nagging feeling of whats going on? How did we get here? I have a feeling its going to lead to something big, especially after the revelations we were given over the last couple issues regarding onesbehavior. Does this all connect together, or am I wrong and its something completely different? Its been a slow start for the new flagship X-Men book, but with recent events ending in other titles, and as we prepare for the next phase of the Krakoan experiment, are we gearing up for some big things? I hope so. Read Full Review

    The stakes seem to be rising for Cyclops' X-Men as the X-line prepares to pivot into the "Destiny of X" era, and all creators involved are rising to the occasion. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Jan 1, 1970

    X-Men #6introduces a new member to the team in the form of Captain Krakoa and a new threat from Orchis. I'm intrigued to see how the X-Men handle these new changes, as well as the "secret origin" of Captain Krakoa. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jan 10, 2022

    Overall, X-Men #6 was just a swing and a miss with how Captain Krakoa was presented to us in his first appearance. That does not mean that the direction with Captain Krakoa is a complete loss. There is a lot of potential to make this storyline a success. Duggan just needs to get the rest of the X-Men involved or else this isn't the superhero team book we were sold in experiencing.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jan 8, 2022

    The introduction to Captain Krakoa is completely fumbled in order to try and pull off some non-linear storytelling. All it does is make this issue unnecessarily confusing, when all I want to do is meet this new character and read their story. Read Full Review
