    And so with House of X and Powers Of X over, The X-Men now have a far more interesting status quo than ever before. Really enjoying reading both of these series as well as reviewing them. While I do...

    Well, she kind of is. Although to get technical, she's a parasitic lifeform from the astral plane who took on a physical body when she bonded to Xavier while he was still in the womb. (That's Grant...

    Once again, Jonathan Hickman has knocked it out of the park. And seeing the mutants' new government in action is both fantastic and worrisome at the same time. As I write in my own review:

    Yeah, methinks Professor X under Jonathan Hickman definitely seems closer to being a super villain than a superhero. Which, of course, makes this is issue of Powers of X so fascinating and...

    Very well said and, I believe, may be the very point Jonathan Hickman is driving at.

    From Xavier's perspective, he knows, thanks to Moira, that every avenue he's taken to achieve peaceful...

    Okay, I think anyone who was really paying attention and closely reading House of X and Powers of X pretty much figured out what the big twist that was being set up. Maybe not exact details, but...

    As a reason for how the upcoming Amazing Mary Jane series comes to be, I though Amazing Spider-Man #29 was very good. And shame on Nick Spencer for tugging on the heartstrings of Peter and MJ...

    Powers of X #4 is one of those comic books where, as you read it, you sort of see how everything connects but not really. At least that's how it was for me. Not to say it isn't very good, though....

    Exactly! The prologue from House of X #1, in which we see various X-Men being "birthed" from those Krakoa seed pods is very much a Chekov's Gun.

    This also wouldn't be the first time mutants would...

    I think we all know well enough by now that, when it comes to death in comics, it's practically meaningless. Not to mention there's at least two ways House of X and Powers of X have established which...

    I didn't think the House Of X #3 issue was as strong as the others. But I do think it's very interesting how Jonathan Hickman is making us question whether the X-Men are still in the right and...

    Under ordinary circumstances, I think Powers of X #3 would make a for fine, if standard post-apocalyptic X-Men story. However, with the ending twist (which, admittedly, quite a few folks predicted),...

    For those who say that Hickman's X-Men is lacking social commentary, I would humbly and respectfully disagree. If anything, it's very clear that with both House of X and Powers of X, he's exploring...

    That was my thinking as well the moment we saw that the "Old Man" Wolverine talked about was, in fact, Apocalypse. It certainly would be a decent twist on Hickman part to make us think everything...

    After reading and reviewing Powers of X #2, I also agree that House of X, so far, is the better of the two series. I also agree that, when it comes to the characters, they definitely feel more...

    Okay, while I did think House of X #1 was the better of the two Jonathan Hickman X-Men series (at least so far), Powers of X #1 is still a very good read. But it's also not a simple read either, so...

    Oh, no kidding! The previous weekly Uncanny X-Men run, with it's whole "let's kill off a mutant every issue" became an absolute trainwreck.
