Wolverine and the X-Men 15 review

This issue touches on a lot of different plot threads. While they’re all self-explanatory, you might be a little lost if you haven’t read this series much yet. That said, this is the best AVX tie-in this series has had yet.

There are so many little character moments in here that highlight the direction this series has taken since the beginning. The Jean Grey School has its first graduate, the relationships between the staff members have changed and Oyo from Generation Hope has found happiness at the school. Iceman finally shows maturity and Professor Xavier reveals Quentin Quire’s full name. Every one of these little scenes is either amusing or moving – sometimes both.

The AVX material feels important, yet it’s not overwhelming or completely necessary. It’s really just the X-Men and the Avengers planning their final assault together and preparing for battle. This issue embraces the dark nature of the event’s final act, yet it still retains WATXM’s light hearted mood. AVX doesn’t get in the way of all the drama and humour in this issue – in fact it supplements it. Despite everything that happens in this issue, it’s never hard to follow. This series is back to being awesome like it was before AVX.

The art is good too. There are plenty of details in nearly every panel, from the cemetery on the school grounds to the shelf full of booze in Wolverine’s office. Character expressions are very well handled too.

This is a great issue of Wolverine and the X-men, and it brings the series back to the high quality level that it had before Avengers vs. X-Men started. While there isn’t any action, there are so many amusing character moments that this issue doesn’t need any. Whether you enjoy this series or you want a decent AVX tie in with some good X-Men character development, this is an easy recommendation.

About healed1337

I am a relatively new comic book fan writing this blog for other new comic book fans and/or people who are interested in comics but don't know where to start. I've always been interested in writing, to the point where I have a college Creative Writing Certificate and I'm currently a year 2 Journalism student. I also have another blog where I mostly make fun of bad movies - www.healed1337.blogspot.com As for how I got into comics, I've always had a passing interest in superheroes: most notably Batman, Spider-man and the X-Men. Until February of 2011 (I think,) my only experience with any of these franchises came from the movies and video games. Shortly after I bought Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 however, I decided to check out X-23, Wolverine's female clone. I ended up reading her Innocence Lost origin story and enjoyed it. From there, I started reading various X-Men comics and it quickly exploded into my newest hobby. My other interests/hobbies include video games, movies, music, playing sports, my dogs and weird news.
