  • Its like an old Image title, great art, forgettable story. Jubilee was great, acting crazy, as she is now a vamp. The action scenes were pretty good. Fighting Sentinels can get pretty old, but some pages looked like they should be posterized. I can try to look at it as an espionage story, with Domino doing her thing, or a great call back to the 1st Sentinel story. or half an X-Force team getting out of the darkness of secrecy.but the story was just not very entertaining.



  • Very short. Interesting. Wondering what happens next. The addition of War Machine is a nice touch. Maybe I'm just really out of touch with the X-Men and need to get caught up. Reprint of X-Men #14 in the back is also pretty nice.


  • A solid entry. Both stories were resolved very quickly. It was interesting seeing the contrast between x-men of 2011 with 1963! The old style was definitely more jokey and not as interesting.


  • This trade contains X-Men (2011) issues #20-23 and X-Men (1963) #14.I haven't read much X-Men related comics since Whedon's run on Astonishing. War Machines caught my eye and featured an interesting group - the back cover text described Storm leading a team of "Utopia's most powerful mutants - Warpath, Psylocke, Colossus and Jubilee." Wait, Jubilee?! Ok, between comments like that and what I've heard about the recent Cyclops/Wolverine split obviously I'd missed a lot of changes. Since this trade [...]


  • This was alright. There was a bit of a break from previous comics in the series. When last I saw Jubilee, she was retreating from everyone, but now she is out in the field. I gather that Schism happened between trades, but this is still a pretty big jump. Still, it played up her vampiric sneakiness and strength, so that was well-handled, and the story was good, if not terribly exciting. It was also a rather short collection, padded out by an old story, which I would prefer they didn't do. There [...]


  • FIRST READ: Not a bad story, nothing special, but not bad. The reason for the four-stars is the addition of the classic X-Men at the end with the first appearance of the Sentinals. So cool to see such a classic story in with the modern story. SECOND READ: What this book has going for it more than the others in this series so far is as follows:a) The story connects back to the original story of Jubilee becoming/being a vampireb) It's like an 80's/90's action movie plot put into an X-Men comicc) S [...]


  • This volume contains enough entertainment in a story about Storm led X-Men team against another party who use perennial enemy the Sentinels. There is little in the way of character development or great emotional impact. Rather, readers will get set pieces of action with most characters getting their moment to blast, thump or shoot as appropriate and solid art. This is not a bad thing in itself, but readers should go into it knowing that this is by no means a deep volume and it may take something [...]


  • An embarrassingly contrived plot that devolved quickly. That's just a brief synopsis of this collection. Gischler again struggles to grasp who these characters are and what makes them great. The inclusion of War Machine was interesting until the second issue when that tension disappears for no reason. Just bad writing. Jubilee's decent intowhatever is plain bad. The art by Will Conrad was solid and keeps this from being rated any lower. Overall, another miss.


  • Public library copy.(To be read on vacation.)I don't keep up with mutant titles obviously because this book was a library copy, but this was an all right read. I thought the artist was really good and even better than the story served. I hope the artist gets a chance to work on a title of wider recognition rather than a non-A-list mutant character title.


  • I think this may be Gischler’s best volume of the series. Yeah, it’s shallow as all heck and has no long-lasting effects; the characterization of War Machine is also non-existent. But it’s a fun bit of action with some nice continuity via the Sentinels. I also think the team gels better post-Schism, where it was kind of random beforehand.


  • 3.5*. You know what I really like about this series? The fact that you don't have to read any others (yet) to enjoy it or get the full story. No cross-overs (yet), no need to read other series or Event mini-series. Just good, action-packed mutant fun.



  • X-Men volume 3 has never been a good series and after Regenesis it's equally bad as Uncanny X-Men. Piece of crap. At least there's still Peter David and maybe Mike Carey


  • This was an ok read for something borrowed from the library.The art was on the strong side and the writing was on the mediocre side.I'm just sayin'.


  • Surprisingly good seems to be the watch-word for Gischler's X-Men. A solid, if unremarkable, adventure that has some good battle scenes if a fairly cliched plotline. Not bad, but not great either.


  • The art is great, but the story is just so-so. It was a fun, quick read, even if the plot wasn't exactly memorable.


  • An average X-Men story. I wish Sentinels were still scary in the comics, but they're not. They're just purple cannon fodder these days. I liked the team setup, but not a lot of characterization.



  • This book contains two stories related to robotic enemies / foes.I found this book quite entertaining with the story from 1963 be the better of the two.
