    The worst aspect of this issue is that it ends on such a satisfying note that it seems to render the fourth and final issue completely unnecessary. But heaven forbid Wolverine not get a few words in edgewise. Hopefully Jenkins still has something meaningful left to say as this overextended series finally closes. Read Full Review

    Sarcasm aside, I enjoyed this issue for the most part. It was a real good issue for people relatively unfamiliar to Cyclops, as it gave a bunch of flashbacks detailing a few important moments from his formative years. Granted, the fact that he was thinking about his mother kind of took me by surprise(nobody EVER talks about poor Katherine Summers!), since I REALLY thought it would be revealed he was thinking about Jean, but whatever. I am a bit bothered that we still don't know what this massive, deadly, horrendous threat to the X-Men is, but hopefully we'll find out next issue. Other than that, this was a perfectly acceptable comic. Read Full Review

    If you needed a character study of Cyclops, this is for you. Otherwise, just wait for the Schism miniseries for the main course. Read Full Review
