    Overall, X-Terminators #1 is a pretty screwed up version of The Hangover but with mutants. The story by Williams is pure joy. The art by the creative team is gorgeous. Altogether, X-Terminators #1 is a story that comic book fans will both enjoy and cringe. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Aug 22, 2022

    X-Terminators is like a fun night on the town, only that night involves blowing up vampires' heads and loving every minute of it. There's nothing else like X-Terminators in the X-Men line, making it a unique experience. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Priya Saxena Sep 21, 2022

    X-Terminators #1 is as hilarious as it is blood-soaked. This comic knows how silly its being and wants the reader to know it knows. Its particular brand of violence and humor may not be for everyone, but those who enjoy the concept of Dazzler roller-skating through puddles of blood chewing gum and blasting vampires are sure to love it.

    I just had a blast with this one. It's silly, over the top and looks great. It's one of those comics that keeps a smile on your face the whole damn time. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Sep 28, 2022

    I didn't go in with a lot of expectations because I'm so disconnected from all of this but it did exactly what I had hoped. The book focuses on just a few characters without all the larger trappings that make up both Marvel and mutantdom in particular. What we get here is something that's very simple and character-driven that then takes us into the wild and crazy stuff. The core trio we spend time with here aren't deeply fleshed out but you get a sense of who they are and that makes it easier to go along for the ride with and see what it introduces us to. It does help knowing who these characters are since I've got old familiarity, but it's also pretty standard stuff here. The artwork is great and the pacing is solid as it moves us from a breakup into a crazy world of death. It just works it works really well. I'm definitely keen to check out more. Read Full Review

    X-Terminators #1 is a mood. Actually, it's a couple of moods. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Sep 21, 2022

    X-Terminators #1 is mostly carried by its art, with a story that doesn't live up to the potential it promised. Having been let down by The Trial of Magneto, which Williams also penned, I hope this title doesn't suffer the same fate. But so far, it feels like the Spice Girls attempting to do a cover of the Wu-Tang Clan. Read Full Review

    X-Terminators #1 features adult themes and skimpy outfits that go from one action scene to another. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Sep 21, 2022

    Final Thoughts:X-Terminators #1 has bold art and kinetic action, but the plot makes no sense, and the heroes are written in the same voice as screechy, delinquent middle schoolers. Read Full Review
