Rise of the Powers of X #3

By: Kieron Gillen, R. B. Silva

THE REAL END IS NEVER BEGINNING! The past, present and future of Krakoa all rests in a trigger finger. The scenario you prayed would never happen plays out as two series that are one move toward a crash that will reverberate outside the universe...

What a great return! I was captured from page 1, and it seems the break did not change a thing for Staples or Vaughan.

This issue was really bad.

Too many characters, plotlines and none of them work well, Tynion is a great writer, but his Batman is just mediocre and lacks soul. Bengal's is not great and has no impact.

Batgirls was fine, Jorge Corona is a great artist and the writing was okay, but not great

They have a new artist and the style is a bit jarring from what came in the past. I don't blame the artist. I always feel this way when one artist does eight issues for an arc and they then bring in another for the nineth. It's sort of a me thing, but it does affect how I enjoy the story. Sorry.

Now to the meat of the issue. There's no meat. It's all healthy vegetables that explain what more

Two issues to go and an omega issue and Tynion cant get this "event" off the tarmac. He said it was supposed to be a horror story. It's actually a horror of a story.

This book should honestly be called "Miracle Molly" since Batman is just a sideshow for Tynion's pet character. Not even the art could save this because the art was also shitty. As was the backup. As is this whole event, Tynion can't go away to Substack faster.

2 issues left for Tynion and I hope Williamson can bring something much better to the table. This "event" has been a dud from the start and gauging by other reviews here the sidelining of Batman in his own by Tynion hasnt been well received.
