    Despite the big reveal at the end Storm is the runaway winner, in my opinion, this issue and it's been a long time coming. Whether it be in a powerless duel for leadership against Cyclops or for the lives of her teammates against Callisto she rises to the occasion unbeaten"EVERY single time. Read Full Review

    X-MEN GOLD #20 delivers weak characterization and random romance as the X-Men fight for survival on an alien planet. Read Full Review

    A surprise engagement spices up the end of a decent though not spectacular classic feeling X-Men arc. Read Full Review

    Overall, this issue was just ok for me. I do love it when the X-Men go out on a good space mission, and the beginning of this story arc was good, but it definitely did not stick the landing in ending the story. Yes, the situation was dire, but it all just ended too fast and too neatly for me. I have issues on how easily Nightcrawler was able to figure out their way home, after only being on an enemy ship for a short time, as a captive, and not seeing much of their technology. And the “status quo” altering ending that the solicit promised?Any reader would have seen it coming pages before, so that was also a let down. The art in this issue was really good, and for me, the only saving grace. Here's hoping the next story kicks things up a notch and makes this title exciting again. Read Full Review

    X-Men: Gold #20 is a very forgetful and unnecessary epilogue outside of the final page. Guggenheim is better than this, hopefully well back on track with the next arc. Read Full Review

    Even though I love the elevation of Ink, I enjoy Storm remembering that she doesn't need powers to be bad-@$$ and the interplay between Nightcrawler and the new kid, this issue doesn't have a lot going for it. Read Full Review
