So… it seems like this issue wraps up the first storyline of this book. And while it was mostly setup for future storylines, and totally the kind of story that could have very comfortably been done in one issue, I still enjoyed it and I’m interested to see where it will go from here. However, this is the issue that might upset some people… one of the X-Men undergoes a change that we’re told will be permanent… Thankfully, it’s the one that’s been through this kind of thing about fifteen times before.
I have to say, I’m almost surprised it took this long for the fourth issue of All-New X-Men to be released. Last month they waited only two weeks after the first issue before releasing the second. And then only one week after that, the third was released. So I was expecting to see the fourth issue within a matter of hours after reading the third. However, it was another whole two weeks! Perhaps I’m the fool, I wasn’t expecting the Marvel Now! relaunch to be so heavily peppered with bi-weekly books.
To the review!
