Avengers vs. X-Men Consequences 5

At last, the final AVX related comic has been released. The consequences mini-series has been very good and this issue is no exception, but it’s nice to finally have the event behind us.

As with the previous issues, this one focuses primarily on Cyclops, but not necessarily from his perspective. The bulk of the issue is the prison break the last issue teased. Magik’s limbo powers are on full display here, showcasing how dangerous of a villain she could potentially be. That’s not to mention that both Magneto and Danger are there as well. Cyclops’s darker direction since M-Day has arrived at full force, and it appears he’s willing to do almost anything to protect mutants now. Can’t say I’m overly surprised, but Cyclops and Wolverine have essentially switched places.

The only other storyline this issue touches on is Hope’s search for Cable. This storyline has a very natural conclusion and it just feels right. Because this issue only touches on two stories (which inter act a bit), it feels more focused than the rest of the mini-series. The art is simple, yet it works.

There’s not much else to say about this one. It’s a great conclusion for AVX. It’s also an important read for any X-Men fans who read AVX, even if they didn’t like it. It’s also a great read for anyone interested in the direction the X-Men books are going in the near future. Kieron Gillen deserves thanks for cleaning up AVX, and for all of his excellent X-Men work in the last two years.

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.

    A good way to end it, and I’m digging Scott as an anti-hero. Danger’s new direction is really interesting, Magik is terrifying, and Magneto’s really cool.
