    This might be the best-looking issue of X-Men Gold to date. For that, credit has to go to Lan Medina, a criminally underrated artist whose work is always outstanding. Read Full Review

    X-MEN GOLD #10 is a fast paced narrative detailing the return of one of the team's greatest villains. As a superhero story, it shines in its dark tone. However, the characterization that has defined the series thus far faltered. Read Full Review

    Overall, this issue is not the most exciting or ground breaking, but it should still prove to be enjoyable for old fans and new fans alike. More than anything, this makes me want to read the next issue and that is what a comic should do. By Lenin's Ghost, this should continue to be an exemplary run. Four stars! Read Full Review

    Even though this may not have been a strong issue in the series I still enjoyed reading it. This is such a great choice of members for a team and I really am excited that Illyana has appeared again. Also we get some short cameos from other beloved X-Men and that helps to drive this as the core book in ResurreXion. Gold is the new Uncanny and with the cameos in this book, I hope it's setting a precedent that we may have more cameos or even a revolving team lineup. Read Full Review

    There's so much craziness in the premise that the fact this book makes sense and isn't patently terrible is a victory. Read Full Review

    Shoot The Breeze Comics - Tyler Wing Aug 24, 2017

    The introduction of this entire story including Anatoly and the abysmal depiction of Magik is not only absurd but is a hollow attempt at presenting Omega Red with some level of relevance. In a market of numerous publishers where there are so many other genuinely well written and thought-provoking titles, I am honestly ashamed that this type of rendering is permitted in one of Marvels most lucrative and premier titles. Marc Guggenheim is sorely testing the limits of my loyalty to the X-Men brand. Read Full Review

    So many parts didn't make sense, like the uncle followed Peter's career but didn't know Illyana was older. I don't enjoy books that cause you to say "they wouldn't say (or do) that" so often.

    Artistically, by far the weakest issue of X-Men Gold thus far. It amazes me that Marvel doesn't place it's top-tier talent on one of their flagship titles. From a storytelling point, the ongoing plot continues to be mediocre. Omega Red wasn't a great villain in the 90s and it looks like he'll be another throwaway villain here. X-Men Gold has really made no progress in telling an in-depth story after 10 issues. At some point things have to improve, but that may just be wishful thinking.

    Marc Guggenheim pulls the trigger on his Omega Red story, tying it to the Rasputin family with a questionable gangster uncle outta nowhere. In most cases, I hate fans who second-guess creators by saying, "[my favorite hero] would never lose that fight!" But this issue … On one page, the *entire* team is bustin' on what pushovers the gangster mooks du jour are; on the next page, the baddies have effortlessly kidnapped Illyana. The capture isn't even shown on-panel; you don't need to be a graduate continuity scholar to call bull☠☠☠☠ on *that*. The wider plot shows some promise, but the questionable pacing and some aggressively forgettable art keeps this issue from being anything special.

    Omega Red's introduction was a story arc that I loved, so I was excited to see him return. Drawn by Chris Bachalo, Andy Kubert, or Jim Lee he looked menacing. Even with his unusual look it worked. Here he did not have that same feel. It could be colors that made him pop a little much for a killer. I was also put off by the fact he did not constrict his victims. He instead impales them which seemed unnecessary. I did like the look that was given to Illyana. There is a more biker leathers look that is fitting for running around in cold temperatures. I also appreciated that they made mention of the fact she should be younger than what she is. Otherwise we get the introduction of a long lost uncle that we did not know about until now. Kitty fal more

    This issue sums up the whole series. Art work is good. Writing is dumb. Like written-by-a-teenager dumb. The romantic interests are so boring and the dialogue between them is pathetic. The fight scenes are unbelievably lazy. They have great ideas, but have hired a dumbass to execute them.
