Uncanny X-Men #1 (2013)

Uncanny X-Men #1 


Nothing says badass like a group shot in monochrome and at an odd angle.


Agent Maria  Hill of S.H.I.E.L.D. gets an unexpected visitor who has a plan to deal with Cyclops, the new face of the Mutant Revolution.

Our Heroes:

If you want to call them that, then yeah, they’re “heroes”.

Our Villains:

I didn’t know Sentinels had ninja stealth abilities.

Our Side Characters:

Let’s do the time warp again!


So where does Magik keep that big sword of hers?


Magento, this is not the time to flashback and reflect on the good old days.


Since when is Magento’s uniform white?

Most Memorable Moment:

Oh my god the balloons!!

Final Page:

Man, he looks good for his age.

What We Should Take from This Comic:

As the Mutant Revolution grows, a new enemy that opposes it, or at least, the face of the Revolution, has appeared.  If everything goes to plan, Cyclops is heading for a huge fall from grace.

What We Do Take From This Comic:

With this art, it was kind of hard to tell that was Emma Frost.

Yay or Nay?



  1. Well Bendis DID establish that Cyclops was going on a "road to redemption" story, but given the events of AvX, one could argue the only thing he really has to atone for is killing the Professor. Outside that, the Avengers were made out to be the bigger villains of the story. Same with this issue: Maria Hill and SHIELD are made out to be the villains of the story. Makes me sick to see all this "hero vs. hero" trite when we had believed it was over with the start of the "Heroic Age" line. Guess not.

    1. I'm pretty new to Marvel, using this whole Marvel Now relaunch as a reason to jump aboard. So ultimately I'm not sick of all this hero vs. hero yet, but I bet you I soon will be. Just give it time and another of these reaction shots for me.
