IMG_7803Yesterday, we kicked off the event of 2016 in the X-Men Apocalypse wars that transcends into three different issues (The Extraordinary X-Men, Uncanny X-Men, and the All-New X-Men). After being one issue in, we have decided to keep the train rolling with the next issue in chronological order which is Uncanny X-Men #6 which sees us hook up with Magneto, Psylocke, Sabertooth, Archangel, and many more. The first time that Archangel ever met Apocalypse, it didn’t go so well for the rest of the X-Men as he fell under Apocalypse’s spell and became a horseman. After breaking free from Apocalypse’s stranglehold, he formed a relationship with fellow X-Men member Psylocke and the two became very close. Fast forward to the current events and he is on the verge of death as he lay in a comatose state. All Psylocke wants to do is save him before a prophecy becomes true and the end of the world ensues, but what happens next, the team will not see coming.

This is an interesting turn of events in the universe as it slowly is setting up the events that are about to take place. I do however like where they were going with the story because its kind of an eerie one while also have a good subplot with M and Sabertooth that you definitely want to read. I definitely enjoyed this comic more than the Extraordinary X-Men because I felt it was a tighter story that didn’t need to have stupid characters contained within it. I’m just wondering how they are going to connect this story with the other one and the ones that are to come. The artwork in this one is awesome, I love the animation and it fits the mood of the story. I especially love the artwork that is associated with Psylocke and her telling Magneto a certain story. The panels are easy to read and follow so you shouldn’t have a hard time with it. I have always been a fan of Uncanny X-Men over most of the others so check it out for yourselves and while you’re at it, check out my grades below:


Story/Plot: A

Artwork: A+

Character Representation: A+

Entertainment Value: A+
