We are continuing along nicely with our X-Men Apocalypse War Marvel Event of the year and we are going back to Extraordinary X-Men this time around for Extraordinary X-Men #11. In the last issue, Colossus has stolen the ark and some members of the crew think it’s over until they decide to soldier on to change fate before it’s too late, but they’ll have to do battle with the Horseman and Logan who has been taken over by the Symbiote. Meanwhile, Sarna has been developing her powers nicely since they met with Doctor Strange. After Magik takes her focus off of her, she notices something is wrong and decides to go after the team in the future. In this issue, the team is deeply entrenched in battle with the horseman and things are starting to look bleak for them. Nightcrawler, however gets the idea that Storm and him should go into the pyramid where they will try to confront Apocalypse, but it could have grave consequences for it. Meanwhile Sarna has officially run away, but to find out why and what happens when they confront Apocalypse, read the issue here at Marvel.

Thanks to the last issue we read in chronological order of the Apocalypse Wars event, you can see how this issue ties in with the last one. The battle between the team and the Horseman is awesome and the interaction between Jean Grey and Logan is great as well. In the past I displayed my concern for how some of the Horseman were acting, but this issue definitely explains or at least gives me insight into why they are not acting like they are supposed to. I am actually curious with where they are going to go next with Sarna’s character. The artwork is pretty good, I still have an issue with how some of them look, but I accept it at this point. Don’t get me wrong, not all of it is bad, it just some of the characters. Everything else is good with the issue. The panels are super easy to read and follow along with. This issue packs a lot in it as far as characters are concerned so definitely check this one out (and to keep along with the timeline). Check out my grades below:
Character Representation: A
