    This volume was just okay. This one brings back Gambit and...well let's just say I never really did care about the character. This one mostly focuses on Rogue and people trying to recruit her. On top of that we got Gambit hitting the X-Men and making them all suffer. Also Storm is confused, kitty, bobby, and rogue all are in a love triangle of sorts, and...this doesn't go anywhere special. The stuff with Gambit and Rogue is fine, but still meh. I also thought the love triangle was cute but lead This volume was just okay.

But overall this is just okay. Nothing to really write home about. A 2.5 out of 5.

    Yeah, this one really did nothing for me. There's more telling than showing when it comes to character motivation, particularly with Wolverine. There's a mutual attraction between him and Storm, apparently. Huh? He thinks of Rogue as a little sister. What? And I was already really, really sick of being hit over the head with the underwhelming chemistry between Rogue and Gambit in 616 Marvel books. It's far, far worse here, where I felt exactly nothing between them. Plus an overdose of fight scen Yeah, this one really did nothing for me.

Vaughan is usually better than this, and I honestly think that in the hands of a worse writer, this book would suck. As is, it's just severely underwhelming.

    This one was generally interesting, but the writing quality definitely seems to have dipped quite a bit from previous volumes. The dialogue was occasionally cheesy and dumb but most the time it was just fine. The art wasn't as good as some of the former ones (particularly the faces of some of the main characters often didn't look great) but generally it was still pretty good.

The main thing I didn't like about it was that it just wasn't all that intriguing... rather more standard generic X-men comic fare... basically one battle/plot point extended over several different issues, but without any really decent meaningful backbone to it all. The various romances back and forth (like some sort of stupid soap opera) also just made it all seem more trite. But, in the end it was alright, not terrible, not great... at least the artwork was generally enjoyable.

    The conceit of The Ultimate Universe was to allow Marvel's top tier writers to completely reimagine long-running and fan favorite character, ignore their back stories, and allow them a chance to place them in a more modern context. After a Very Bumpy start in the last volume, Vaughan comes up with some better ideas here. His concept for Fenris is vague in an intriguing rather than frustrating way, and his setup for the relationship between Rogue and Gambit is much better handled than Claremont's The conceit of The Ultimate Universe was to allow Marvel's top tier writers to completely reimagine long-running and fan favorite character, ignore their back stories, and allow them a chance to place them in a more modern context.

His concept for Fenris is vague in an intriguing rather than frustrating way, and his setup for the relationship between Rogue and Gambit is much better handled than Claremont's "They're both from the South." I did find myself drifting in and out of the story, as it didn't feel completely earnest. But I do enjoy his scaling back the use of Wolverine as the main character.

    This one was all about romantic relationships and it brought Gambit back (finally!) but man, a lot of these relationships just seem random... All of a sudden certain characters have feelings for another and there is so much forced drama in this. The villians that get introduced here, a group named Fenrir, weren't particularly interesting and felt like they were just there to get the ball rolling. It had some kick-ass moments with Rogue though, so it wasn't all that bad.

    While volume 9 of this series was probably Ultimate X-Men at its best. Volume 10 feels like just another story. The art is still great and Vaughan has a strong handle on these characters but this volume is still a small step backwards even if it remains significantly better than the early volumes.

    Great art, okay story. Lots of great concepts that feel underdeveloped. This volume feels like a bridge between arcs, an attempt to rearrange characters for the next arc.

Where Millar and Bendis both made their arcs more typically in six, the four issue structure moves everything along faster, but I’m not convinced that it’s a great thing to do. First, the last arc covered hardly any time, a day or two, and this entire arc is contained really only in a few hours. So the pacing seems way to fast, and we see relationships forming and dissolving in the matter of minutes, here. And, unfortunately, this arc focuses even closer on the romantic issues of the team, especially Iceman and Rogue. Which I didn’t like before, but here it gets especially annoying as we get the full soap opera treatment, Iceman kissing Kitty and Rogue getting angry, and then with Gambit and all that, and it just doesn’t seem real. Or it feels like these people are even younger than they really are. I mean, it’s all very confusing and really not in keeping with these characters. Even Gambit, who only appeared in one issue, seems completely different, and is much more morally dubious. Previously he was a scoundrel, but valued his freedom to the point of choosing to live without a home. For him to go from that to being a willing participant in corporate espionage stretches believability and ultimately (haha, get it…sorry) drives me out of the story Same thing with Wolverine and Rogue. That relationship that is supposed to be so hitting at the beginning just feel fabricated, like it didn’t exist and now Vaughan wants it to have existed the entire time. And that kind of thing kind of bothers me. Especially when it is all over the place. The stuff with Iceman and Rogue might be seen as an adolescent relationship where they are experiencing powerful emotions and not handling it well. The stuff with Wolverine and Storm seems to come out of left field, especially given Wolverine’s personality. And the age difference is just creepy. Beyond that, the story isn’t that bad. I mean, the villains are very obvious villains, but that’s not always a terrible thing. Their goal of getting equality through financial superior is an interesting one, and one that definitely fits more with the times. But even there, they are very one dimensional and don’t really present a threat to the X-Men. All in all I was rather disappointed with this arc. Between the pacing and character issues, it also kind of drops the whole hero thing again. While the villains once again bring up that the X-Men aren’t doing much to help the average mutant, it’s not really like they are either. They are manipulative and greedy. So there is no better alternative, leading to the X-Men coming out morally superior. The ending is almost nice, having Rogue run away, but part of me feels she hasn’t been around long enough to deserve that kind of ending. Either way, it thins the cast again, which needs to happen. There are too many characters running around. Having the different ages of X-Men is kind of nice, but really the differences seem a bit arbitrary as Storm, Scott, Jean, and Colossus are not much older than the rest. So part of the break is starting to feel artificial. I think the focus on smaller threats is also taking away from the enjoyment of the book. With Millar especially but even Bendis, there was the sense that Mutants were threatened and in constant danger. With Vaughan I don’t get that feeling, and the threats are smaller and not as engaging. So I wish that the series would get back to dealing with very big, immediate things instead of the smaller, dramatic, romantic things that they have been recently. While the change was refreshing to start, I am already tired to Vaughan’s style and would rather, at this point, have Millar back, for while his X-Men were much more controversial, they were at least compelling. This latest arc comes in at a 5/10.

    Why, Vaughan. Why. Okay, okay, okay... This isn't a horrible comic, but come ON! Really? Vaughan, I thought you were better than this. Why did you hurt me, Vaughan? I trusted you. X-Men Volume 10 is about the X-Men falling in love and continually backstabbing each other. It gets incredibly ridiculous at certain points. I seriously thought if there was anything that would bring the team down, it might be a combination of a little of that and some idealistic differences- kind of why Magneto and Xavie Why, Vaughan.

X-Men Volume 10 is about the X-Men falling in love and continually backstabbing each other. It gets incredibly ridiculous at certain points. I seriously thought if there was anything that would bring the team down, it might be a combination of a little of that and some idealistic differences- kind of why Magneto and Xavier split. But Rogue, Wolverine, Storm, Iceman, Shadowcat, and Gambit all have the hots for each other- so it's time to start drawing your love triangles, and start betting who's going to fall in love and who won't. Along with that, there's a pretty strange plot with Rogue being given the opportunity to control her mutant powers when she wants. While in concept that sounds interesting, it's brought up out of nowhere without any setup, and is dropped immediately afterwards, to cut to Rogue making out with Gambit in front of Iceman. But the logic doesn't make any sense. Andrea and Andreas make money right? From what? We know Xavier got money from the Hellfire club (which no longer exists, so I'm guessing he's already filed for bankruptcy), but these two characters just have enough money to take in any mutant they want and help them with there abilities. All two of them. Along with these two ridiculous plots, I've started to get fed up with Dazzler. I was never familiar with her as much up until now, and I can gladly say I am sick of her. She adds nothing to the team, except for the one panel they throw her in for to save random civilians, and most of her jokes are typical "moody teen girl who only judges for the superficial" humor, which I've already seen done to death in Kick-Ass 2. The movie or the comics? Yes. Vaughan surprisingly wrote with some interest for the characters, but the fact that he brings up all this needless drama for forced conflict is as jarring as it is irritating. Hopefully, the next few issues will increase in quality.

    This is the second volume of Brian K Vaughan's run on Ultimate X-Men. While the story isn't as strong as the previous volume, it's still quite good and very likable. The art duties fall upon Andy Kubert who does well with characters but can be lacking in the atmosphere/setting department. The main example of this problem being the Fernis Headquarters. It's almost non-descript and seems to be comprised of one large empty room.

    I've always avoided the Ultimate line because it just seemed fake. I know that the original wold is made up as well, but its the X-Men, only its not the X-Men. I undestand the desire to pretend that a lot of the clones, future incarnations, and false-deaths hadn't happened, but you can't just go and ignore it all; it sort of strikes me as professional, Marvel sponsored fan-fic. I bought this volume, however, because Vaughan wrote it. It was definately good and had his trade-mark witty dialogue, I've always avoided the Ultimate line because it just seemed fake.

    I bought this after reading Storm, Vol. 1: Make it Rain and deciding I needed more Storm/Logan in my life. Also, Brian K. Vaughan wrote it. After reading it, I remembered how much I liked the first volume of Ultimate X-Men when it came out when I was in high school. So now, I'm reading that and may try to read the entire Ultimate X-Men run. Because I have nothing else to read.

    Ultimate X-Men Volume 10: Cry Wolf is an interesting X-Men story with a great script and art. It is nothing game-changing, but has great character interactions and moments for all of the X-Men. The reinventions of the Fenris Twins, Dazzler, and the Gambit-Rogue romance are particularly intriguing.

    I really liked to see Rogue struggle with her powers and her place in the X-men. Gambit was one of my favorite mutants as a kid so it was really fun to see his return. Rogue's characters really allows the writer and artist to explore the ambiguity of what makes a character good and evil.

    Another Marvel collection I picked up very cheap used, mostly due to my admiration for writer Brian K. Vaughan. This is clearly not among his strongest work, and is merely just a decent time-waster. Good art, nothing earth-shattering for a story. Just okay, nothing more.

    This volume shows Vaughan's great character narrative in Gambit. While the Gambit/Rogue narrative has been done, and again, this is a fresh take on a tired theme.
