Cyclops and the X-Men have set out to save mutantkind…but the Mutant Liberation Front isn’t going to just wait for it to happen! Led by one of the X-Men’s own, the MLF is willing to do whatever it takes to stop mutant oppression…even kill any mutant who stands in their way…

Review: Uncanny X-Men #14

Uncanny X-Men #14

Cyclops and Wolverine have drawn together a new team of X-Men from the ashes of “X-Men Disassembled,” and now they turn their eyes to setting their agenda. Cyclops has a list…a list of things the X-Men have to take care of…if it’s the last thing they ever do.

Writer Matthew Rosenberg continues his excellent run on Uncanny X-Men delivering an issue, and series, that blends so much of what has worked in the past and forging something new at the same time.

Uncanny X-Men #14 has the team going on the offensive but also thinking bigger as Cyclops continues to put together his new vision of this new iteration of X-Men. That includes the return of a classic character to cut a deal as well as their focus on dealing with Hope and the Mutant Liberation Front. There’s also some solid action as the team continues their quest to eliminate threats.

But, what surprises me about this comic is how it shows how much Cyclops has changed. He’s a blend between the more optimistic version of himself and the more militaristic version of himself. He wants to take action but also not burn everything down while doing some pretty questionable things. We see more what his X-Men team is doing with prisoners and it’s… different.

The art by Salvador Larroca with color by Guru-eFX and lettering by Joe Caramagna is solid as always. The style just exudes the desperation and balance of hope that the comic is able to juggle. There’s something that just clicks for it all and the X-Men haven’t looked this good in quite some time.

The team has been killing it with recent issues and this is an example of that. The X-Men are back to desperation and feel like they’re fighting an uphill battle, like they should. They’re no longer over powered to the point they have a mutant for every solution and now have a vision as to where they should be going with clear goals and something of a plan. This is the beginning of something that feels great and after a long time with some detours, the X-Men are back to greatness.

Uncanny X-Men #13

Cyclops and Wolverine have drawn together a new team of X-Men from the ashes of “X-Men Disassembled,” and now they turn their eyes to setting their agenda. Cyclops has a list…a list of things the X-Men have to take care of…if it’s the last thing they ever do.

The X-Men are back and Cyclops has to figure out what their first act of business is. Uncanny X-Men #13 is the start of Cyclops’ mission to leave the world in a better place as things aren’t looking good for the X-Men and mutants as a whole. They’re again outlaws in a world that hates them and they don’t care, they’ve got a mission. Writer Matthew Rosenberg delivers a hell of an issue full of action and focus. This is the issue we get a true sense as to where this series is going and what we can expect.

There’s something fresh about this take but at the same time it feels like a throwback in many ways. The team is once again outlaws and things just aren’t looking good. And the team dynamic? It’s great. With a mix of X-Men and New Mutants (with a twist) the team is not quite dysfunctional but one that is full of attitude. It just makes it all a bit more fun an entertaining.

The art by Salvador Larroca is top notch with color from Guru-eFX and lettering by Joe Caramagna. The action is fierce and there’s a solid amount of detail to help tell the story. A look on a face, a nod of a head, they’re there to really help sell the moment. There’s great action and beyond a panel or two where I couldn’t quite tell what was going on, it’s just full of action and energy.

The X-Men have stumbled for quite some time and they’re getting back to the awesome we’ve wanted. This is a great mix of some of the classic team situations we’ve had in the past but with an update that feels new and exciting. Where it felt like a chore to read X-Men comics in recent years (with some bright spots) I’m now looking forward to each issue of Uncanny X-Men and can’t wait to see where it all goes.

Review: Uncanny X-Men #12

Uncanny X-Men #12

After the devastating events of “X-Men Disassembled,” it falls to Cyclops to rebuild the X-Men in the face of overwhelming hatred. Thankfully, he’s not the only X-Man to have just returned from oblivion. Scott and Logan are together again, and they are mutantkind’s only hope.

Things aren’t looking good for the remaining X-Men. It’s Cylcops and Wolverine together again attempting to figure out what to do in a world with no X-Men. The answer? Find some members and Wolverine has an idea.

Writer Matthew Rosenberg focuses his team on a mission. And boy, is it a mission. Rosenberg delivers an issue that’s unexpected and full of action with a style about it that’s just all about ass whooping. What’s revealed, who’s revealed is surprising and it’s an issue full of awesome for long time X fans.

There’s shocking moments. There’s moments that will anger fans. But, getting emotion out of fans, in anyway, is a success.

The art by Salvador Larroca with color by Rachelle Rosenberg and lettering by Joe Caramagna is solid. The tone of the story is really driven by the art which has a style that channels the anger and action well. It’s hard to describe but it’s a combination of art and story that works and does so really well. There’s also small details which stand out like the height differential between Cylcops and Wolverine and what’s eventually discovered. Much like the story, the art has a lot of surprises.

The issue is a solid one picking up from the last one’s setup and delivering an action packed story that is a new take on building a team. What’s revealed, and where it potentially goes, is exciting and for long time X fans, to see this direction feels like a new take on the classic gathering of a new X team (something that’s happened many times before). The team has taken this series in an interesting and solid direction delivering excitement into Uncanny X-Men that’s been missing for some time.
