I don't get the "10" ratings. A 10 is like instant classic, something we'll be talking about 10 years from now. Example, Hox/Pox. A 10 is not "vaguely enjoyable".

I thought this series had excellent early promise and there's some great creativity in the author's Otherworld, but this seemed all over the place.

I'm most disappointed by "Captain Britain will return." Why, ex more

I used to see 10s as "this was as good as Watchmen" but now I just think of them as "this comic had to be put into one of 10 piles so I picked the top one". I'm personally pretty stingy with mine.

That said, the 10s on this one really baffle me.

It's an OK start despite the occasional bump in the road. It's really an issue of defining where we are now, but that's forgivable since this is essentially the 7th issue of a series that would have just been a single ongoing back in the day and new readers have to be caught up on what happened in Way of X and Onslaught Revelation.

Still there's more problems than I'd expected: Spurrie more

A mixed bag. Already we seem bogged down by author's pet characters: Blindfold, Lost, Forget-me-Not.

Some characters didn't sound like themselves:

"Get up, idiot. Or I'll stick a royal thunderbolt up your indigo ass." Storm has never spoken like this.

Some solid concepts though, I shall read on.

Oh this was good! Certainly the real star here is Pepe Larraz, who returns from his hiatus with some truly incredible work, but Duggan is also awake and engaged in a way he hasn't always been on this title. Heroes infiltrating an evil casino is an idea that's been done before and better — we're far from the epoch-making Hickman era here — but Duggan has fun with it and intertwines it well with more

Weird art, pretty hokey overall. With so many underserved X-men out of publication, I really don't give a crap about Somnus. The "Captain Kate Pryde" idea is wearing thin, feels like a phase (pun intended) that should have ended already.
