Lewishamdreamer reviewed Empyre: X-Men #2 Aug 18, 2020
6.0

This could have been so much better but there are storytelling glitches and it’s far denser an issue than it needs to be. The last issue felt like a regular issue of Hickman’s X-Men with some cute elements thrown in to subvert it, but this issue is by the numbers B-list Marvel. Written by committee that’s not surprising, as good as Duggan, Percy and Williams can be, but this is a case of mov more

Lewishamdreamer reviewed Empyre #3 Aug 17, 2020
6.5

It’s a much better issue overall, but the last two issues have set the bar so low I can’t give it huge kudos. The closing revelation is cute but so many of the villainous motivations here are, well, villainous rather than strategic. With stakes this big you’d expect less Dr Evil style mwahaha-ing and more manipulation. The threat to Teddy feels only marginal, give a) Billy would intervene in more
