The only reason this is even 2 = Larroca

1. Emma's hair keeps on magically growing back. tertiary mutation?
2. Those deaths. WTF? Just for drama?
3. "To me my x-men" line. What for? dramatic impact? They're already all behind her.
4. That kiss. too much.
5. emma's cape. just disappeared.

It all ends here. This is forever! As Cyclops' cleanup mission nears its close, all the problems the X-Men face come together.

How Loki is written is certainly full of mischief and that's where most of the humor comes from.

At the end of the book though, I find myself thinking, WTH was that last page about? I don't understand what just happened. And where is this book going? Cause it seems to set up the story like it should be titled "THE FUN SHENANIGANS OF LOKI!" Episode 1 - Meet Loki! Episode 2 - Loki lo more

How can this be so good?

I don't understand the entire history of spider-man comics and why there seems to be so many people who wore the symbiote, i'm assuming there's a lot.

The art and story is exceptional. The coloring is wonderful. The unified green/red/blue/black hues feels like the entire story from panel 1 to last panel is tied together so well. When it goes all more

What a STRONG end to Power of X. I just got the chance to write my thoughts in a review.

PAGE 1 - i don't know why these quotes always make me feel good inside.
PAGE 3 - Amazing art. Professor in a backdrop of absolutely beautiful hues of moss green and blue is absolutely stunning
NEXT FEW PAGES - wait i've seen this before. I should feel cheated. But I don't mind.

SUMMARY
Not as breathtaking story as everything else but a great start. good story, particularly in how it showcases how bad ass kitty ( i mean kate ) has become. I wonder what they'll do next?

THE BEST BITS
1. bobby saying "i'd like to meet these top men" and a bubble originating from an off panel wolverine saying "did you get it?" it's part woke part meta and not too over more

ART - hmm... 10.0. Thoroughly enjoyed the art. I'm not an artist so i can't really give EXACT reasons why but the art felt appropriate, it looked "bad ass"
STORY - 10.0 it hooked me. and i'm not even a venom/spidey/carnage fan. like, AT ALL. But like Venom's character, Parker was amusing, Carnage appropriately terrifying, and the dialogue between them very interesting.

This was like a palate cleanser. I still love the writing. The art style seems... inappropriate? I like Yu's art but you know, I just feel like if it was drawn in any other way, it would have given me more feelz. But hey i'm pretty sure Yu's art during those instances where there's insane action happening would be best served together sometime in the next few issues.

Art - 8 - not the biggest fan. but i have to admit the way it is pencilled conveys a lot of emotion, and i feel the panels are organized very well.
Story - 10 (holy crap HIckman is so good)
Cover - 7 (could have been better. I just feel like IMO the cover does not do justice to how EPIC this book feels. Variant covers are fine i guess. It's just too... crowded
