    Easily its best issue yet, the third installment of X-Terminators remains bombastic and fun while introducing new mystical and cosmic elements to the merry mutant mayhem. Dazzler, Jubilee, Boom-Boom, and Wolverine are getting what so few at Marvel ever do: be raunchy, messy people while continuing to be great superheroes. Even if you can only get one Marvel book this week, X-Terminators easily proves why it's the best pull. Read Full Review

    With X-Terminators #3, the series continues to explore ideas of female sexuality, violence, and spectacle, while amping up the raunchy humor. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Dec 14, 2022

    This series continues to be fun since it's working a bit “blue” compared to a lot of other titles and I'm glad that it's both a conscious decision and that people are warned that it's there in case it's not their thing. Some of it has always been there to a degree but by leaning into it you're going after something more specific. And that's attractive to me since it's not the norm and I'm glad it has a space. I still wouldn't want it in a lot more books overall but ones where it definitely works. The team continues to be the real draw and allowing them to speak as they do helps to humanize them a lot more as they deal with a stressful situation in the moment as well as the debriefing and judgment piece. It's fun, looks great, and has a solid flow to keep it quite engaging. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Dec 3, 2022

    The bar is raised yet again for just how insane this comic can get. X-Terminators is clearly meant to be fun, and that's exactly what we're getting, in spades. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Tony Thornley Dec 6, 2022

    The gleeful grindhouse of X continues. It's gross, crude, explosive, but best of all, it's pretty and fun as hell. Just pick it up. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Jamie Lovett Nov 30, 2022

    X-Terminators #3 sees Leah Williams pushing the grindhouse buttons perhaps too much, as some of the team's raunchier dialogue seems somewhat contrived in places where it came naturally in the first two issues. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Dec 1, 2022

    X-Terminators #3 defies expectations. It's a comic that's nothing but noise, nonsense, and nattering in the middle of big action. There are no stakes, there's no dramatic tension, and the characters' voices all sound the same. Thankfully (or not), nobody seems to care, so if you want to spend the full cover price for a goof of a comic, this one may just be for you. Read Full Review
