    Esta época de los X-Men siempre era muy entretenida. En este caso de la mano de los dibujos de Dodson muchos personajes cobran una versatilidad e importancia tan sólo por los gráficos. Igualmente las relaciones de ellos son bastante fundamentadas y especiales, cosa que para mí ha sido descuidado por muchos otros escritores.

Cuando vino este número emocionó a muchos pues trataba de la vuelta de Kruun, aquel déspota de Breakworld que tan mal hizo pasar a los X-Men en la aclamada serie de "Astonishing X-Men", así como él también vuelve a aparecer la antipática agente Brand y todos se unen para ver qué hay con Kruun y su gente, los acontecimientos bastante duros probarán sobre todo a Kitty Pryde que ya tenía poca acción hasta este capítulo.

    Kieron Gillen comes to the X-Men and hits the ground running! This is one of the best volumes of the X-Men I've read for quite some time. Particularly great for fans of Kitty, Colossus, Magneto, Logan and Hope. A shame this is far as it got before being dragged into a crossover 'event' but that's Marvel for you...

    I really enjoy Gillen's characters, the near-human ones most. (Dr. Nemesis is a particular fave, though I wouldn't want to have to work for him.). Also a big fan of how he handles Agent Brand. The commentary between characters such as Brand and Cyclops is amusing and insightful. I enjoyed Agent Brand's every move, and the subplot around Magneto is an interesting twist to keep us guessing. No matter how long they keep this up, I'm never going to quite believe Erik is reformed and "good" now. More I really enjoy Gillen's characters, the near-human ones most.

No matter how long they keep this up, I'm never going to quite believe Erik is reformed and "good" now. More interesting though is how Gillen handles the aftermath of the Breakworld story from Astonishing. It's on the verge of a story with nuance and empathy for the 'enemy', inasmuch as I think I understand their point of view (alien as it is). The Hope story at the end is interesting foreshadowing but not much more. I'm really getting to like Gillen's take on the X-Men. He's got a good sense of character, a talent for action and surprises in his plotting. Here are my plot notes because I can never remember who when and what, when I'm reading later books: (view spoiler)[Breakworld aliens come to Earth to defeat Colossus, who "broke" the aliens' war culture. Kruun defeats many of X-Men, tortures Colossus & Kitty, but Kruun's mate kills kitty and brings her back (this time no longer permanently intangible).  Breakworld aliens finally set up Breakworldtown in an abandoned neighbourhood of San Francisco.  Hope learns that Logan expects to have to kill her if the predictions of the future hold true.  (hide spoiler)]

    The Good: Dodson art. Kitty, Colossus. Magneto. Namor. Ok the whole team is kickass. Characterization. Dialogue. The Bad: ok not really bad, just an ok story about Breakworld. 534.1 is a story about Magneto.

    So I'm completely and utterly clueless when it comes to Breakworld. One of the things I missed when I wasn't reading Marvel. At any rate, it meant that I was often slightly lost, wasn't really invested in parts of the story, especially to start, and didn't really feel all that invested in what happens to the Breakworlders at the end of the story. And yet... I still managed to enjoy this book. All credit to Gillen, for great action, plausible sequence of events, and good dialog.

And yet... I still managed to enjoy this book. All credit to Gillen, for great action, plausible sequence of events, and good dialog. It helps that Kitty Pryde has a starring role, and I really like her. It also helps that the Breakworld story is sandwiched between two standalone issues that I was able to follow with ease. The Hope story at the end mostly serves to explore the non-relationship between Hope and Wolverine. Decent action, but I really like it for the conversation between Hope and Logan at the bend. But I liked the first story, mostly a conversation between Magneto and his new PR agent. It's kind of funny, but it's also a very sensible step to take. Why wouldn't the X-Men hire a PR agent to spin the fact that Magneto's joined their team? I probably would have loved this if I'd read the Breakworld story that lead directly to the events in this book. I at least would have understood more of what was going on. But I liked it anyways, because Gillen did that good of a job.

    The two single issue stories are the strongest parts of this volume, though they're essentially vignettes about Magneto and Hope. The Breakworld story that makes up the majority of the volume is still good, and a very well-appreciated Coda to Astonishing X-Men.

    I presupposti erano buoni: gli X-Men hanno salvato la Terra dall'attacco di un mondo guerriero alieno, sconfiggendo i capi di quel mondo, fermando la loro arma segreta e realizzando a modo loro le profezie per le quali erano stati attaccati. Poi sono tornati a casa. Ma cosa è successo, su quel mondo, dopo che hanno sconvolto le loro vite e la loro società e li hanno abbandonati a loro stessi? Guerra civile e rivoluzioni.

Ma tra loro c'è il vecchio leader, che sembra avere dei piani tutti suoi... peccato solo che i piani siano, alla fine, incomprensibili e privi di senso. E sopratutto, Magneto e gli X-Men sono tutti mostrati come completi idioti. Caratterizzazioni buttate nello scarico e fatte coi piedi.

Y sería Terry Dodson quien se encargaría de este primer arco, en el que además de un nuevo acercamiento al personaje de Magneto, convertido en uno de los X-Men y figura pública que, después de lo ocurrido en Nueva York en la etapa de Morrison, era una auténtica pesadilla para las relaciones públicas de los X-Men, Gillen se centraría en continuar la trama de Breakworld, el último arco de los Astonishing X-Men de Wheddon y Cassaday, recurriendo incluso a la misma alineación de equipo (cambiando a Bestia y Armadura por Magneto), que son llamados por Abigail Brandt para que acudan a SWORD, ya que una nave de guerra de Breakworld se acerca a la Tierra... y Breakworld no conoce más acción que la guerra. O no la conocía, ya que después de que su civilización fuera vuelta del revés por Coloso, parece que Kruul y sus seguidores no llegan como soldados, sino como refugiados... aunque no todo es lo que parece, como de costumbre...

    Gillen's first solo X-Men, finally. I've read this one before, it's fucking fantastic. Due in no small part to the art by Terry and Rachel Dodson. They are one of my absolute favorites. The story is intricate and interesting, bringing back elements of Joss Whedon's wonderful Astonishing X-Men. Kitty Pryde really shines here. I just can't recommend this book enough. The final issue is a strong one too, about Hope and Wolverine. Great stuff. Gillen's first solo X-Men, finally. I've read this one before, it's fucking fantastic.

    Continuing the great x-read of 2017/2018... (and I am really far behind with my reviews so I will be putting up a bunch of quick-takes to catch up...) This one manages to be a pretty decent read despite the fact that I hate the Breakworld plot. That is mostly due to some good character moments.

    4.5 ⭐️ Gillen begins his run really well. I’m giving it a 4.5 because the final issue in this book (#539) is incredibly rushed and I feel it would’ve been better spread across two issues, even though it still successfully gets its point across.

    An X-Men story that's actually a sequel, instead of just a rehash! It's certainly not as good as Whedon's original plotline, but it isn't bad by any means.

My favorite parts were the two single issues, particularly the one with Hope. It had fantastic art and a nice story to boot. The art in every issue is better than the last couple volumes so that is definitely a positive as well. I think I'm going to at least take a break from Uncanny X-Men, if not stop altogether, because there is little holding my interest and I know that it is going to get rebooted after a couple more story arcs anyway. This part of Uncanny X-men is far from required reading and there are undoubtedly much better points for a new reader to jump in and enjoy this series.

    I used to collect X-Men back in the 80's and early 90's when there was just one X-Men title. I started collecting a little after Kitty Pryde joined the team. I stopped when they started introducing multiple X-Men titles and things got a little too confusing and the stories were lousy. I also collected New Mutants, Excalibur, some West Coast Avengers.

I got this one because I've always been a fan of Kitty Pryde and she's on the cover. Unfortunately, I don't think anyone really knew what to do with the character since she doesn't have a flashy power, isn't flashy to look at and doesn't have a flashy back story. The artwork was solid, even good. The story was fine though I really didn't understand the mindset of the Breakworld people. Not to mention I have no idea what Breakworld is since I haven't been collecting the comics. This one is worth reading and the artwork is solid, it won't have you cringing.

Cyclops agrees to take them in, but one of the generals contained within the refugees chooses instead to mount a sneak attack, taking many of the X-Men out of commission, seeking his chance to re-duel Colossus (see Astonishing X-Men). Some of the refugees (including the general's wife) are learning Earth's ways of peace, forgiveness and saying sorry. Kitty regains her powers during a ritual that the general's wife performs in an effort to help. Overall, not a great tale in the grand scheme of things, but still alright. Recommend.

    Well written dialogue and believable characters make this a little better than most other books that have have come out of Uncanny X-Men. Dodson's clean artwork also make this nice to look at. To be honest, I never really cared for the alien characters in the last Breakworld story and care even less for them here. But characterizations of familiar characters is nice.

    The Breakworld follow-up was inevitable, and being based as it was on Whedon/Cassaday's stuff, was going to be a little disappointing unless it was as epic as what they'd done to get us there. And it was never going to be. This is, however, a fun follow-up, placing the Breakworlders well within the Marvel Universe at the end of it and rectifiying some of the damage done to the status quo of the team after the Whedon arc, Utopia, and Hope.

    I really liked seeing a different side of the X-Men. It was cool to see Magneto as an X-men and really nifty to see how they handle something like an alien civilization. This was my first foray into alternate universes and I enjoyed it a great deal. I got to see some characters that I hadn't read before or had only read as minor characters. Thoroughly enjoyable!

    A fun enough story. Breakworld never really interested me, but Gillen manages to give the concept a bit more depth. I was more engaged by the stories surrounding the main one, namely the one with Wolverine protecting Hope. Some really good stuff there, and all the artists really deliver.

    Thought this was the Breakworld chapter but it's post. Still enjoyable and refreshing to go back to the "modern" art styles after the Essential volumes. There seems to be a lot of that mutant cure floating around for anyone to make. Thought this was the Breakworld chapter but it's post.
