MAGNETO has joined the X-MEN, but due to their long history, not everyone on the team trusts him...especially not JEAN GREY. With tensions rising between teammates, can the X-MEN come together to be a cohesive force for good? Or will ulterior motives and personal quests derail the entire enterprise? At the end of the day...who can be trusted?

    In my review for X-Men: Blue #1, I was excited for the series, but I also left a warning towait and see if Cullen Bunn could give the concept justice. With Issue 2, Bunn has made it clear he knows exactly what he's doing, and what he is doing is so so good. Read Full Review

    We are now two issues in on X-Men Blue and it really seems like Bunn has found his groove with the X-Men. Many are not fans that that O5 are still around, but Bunn has really delivered a solid series so far that has me excited for more shenanigans from Jean, Scott, Hank, Warren and Bobby.

    X-Men: Blue #2 is the strongest of the new X-Men lineup so far. It's a return to what makes the X-Men great: melodrama and intrigue buoyed by strong character work and effective, emotive art. And it's becoming clear that Bunn is not satisfied to just riff on what Claremont did in the past. Instead, he's taking the core approach from those books and applying it to the idea that he finds the most fascinating in the Marvel Universe. Read Full Review

    Overall, this was a great issue. A lot of things have been revealed to the reader that is going to have a huge impact to this team, and I will definitely be following this series to see it all come to light. If you aren't reading this book, you really should pick it up. It's been a great start and I really think things are only going to get better. Read Full Review

    Superbromovies - Jordan Humphrey Apr 27, 2017

    All around it was a book that sets up story, kinda boring compared to the first issue but some books will feature set up for the next books. Fighting sentinels in the next issue will bring some much anticipated action. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez May 2, 2017

    X-Men: Blue #2 was an excellent follow-up to the status quo that was established in the first issue of this core X-Men series. Cullen Bunn has set-up several intriguing plotlines that gives fans a lot to look forward to in the future of this series. Hopefully this momentum continues as the X-Men are now positioned to regain the relevance they lost in the last few years. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Dusty Good May 2, 2017

    The Blue team might be a throwback to the original team; it is certainly a step in the right direction. I'm still looking forward to where this book is headed and hope that these inconsistencies will work themselves out as the creative team rolls on. Read Full Review

    While not a grand reinvention, the basics are locked down enough that anyone's who jumped on will be able to ride out the growing pains without too much trouble. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Apr 29, 2017

    To be fair, there's an interesting situation teased by a final confrontation - and another in the last page - but that doesn't make up for an otherwise humdrum issue. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Apr 29, 2017

    X-Men Blue is comics done right, especially in comparison to the rest of the new X-Men line so far. It's got solid characters, a real foundation and some interesting plot stuff so far. Read Full Review

    I had high hopes for the X-Men: Blue title, I wasn't fully on board with the beginning idea of the original X-Men being brought to the future, but now the same idea is being brought back around. The original X-Men are still in the future, and somehow a specific mutant believes he can send them home. I'm still a little all over the place with how the Marvel Universe lines up with our actual timeline, like a 12 issue year of comics is just a day or week for the comic book world? Either way, the idea of sending the X-Men back to their original timeline is a constant topic of discussion, but even Beast after receiving the power of the Black Vortex had assessed that the possibility to send the original X-Men back in time is not possible, but somehow Magneto is smarter than a galactic super powered Hank McCoy with all the knowledge in the cosmos? I highly doubt that, and this story is so off base with how I expect the characters to be that I'm dropping it from my monthly reads. Read Full Review
