Review: X-Terminators #1
What are friends for? Real friends know you better than you know yourself. They know when you are acting outside of your norm. They can sense when your energy has changed.
They also know what you need before you do sometimes. Of course I am talking about good friends, which are hard to find and as you get older you learn to ascertain those nuances. Good friends will always have your back. In the X-Terminators #1, three of our favorite X-Men start a wild night that goes off the rails quickly.
We open up on Dazzler as she catches her boyfriend cheating on her, which prompts her to call Jubilee and Boom Boom , who wants to take her out , so she can start to get over him. They go to o local bar, where they realize they had been drugged by Alex, Dazzler’s now ex-boyfriend, who has decided to kidnap the girls and put them in a crazy death game. The three friends gets separated and put in dangerous games, where each must fight to the death. By the issue’s end, they each survive the first round, and are reunited but they also find out that they are not the only X-Men, who got taken.
Overall, X-Terminators #1 is a pretty screwed up version of The Hangover but with mutants. The story by Williams is pure joy. The art by the creative team is gorgeous. Altogether, X-Terminators #1 is a story that comic book fans will both enjoy and cringe.
