X-Men #11, “One war, one mutant”


Magneto reminds us all that we were given “every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.” Behold the book of X-men, chapter 11, verses 1-32, where he proved it!

This is the gospel according to the almost, the X-master almighty, Jonathan Hickman. As envisioned by Leinil Francis Yu.

The official plot:


Marvel Comics

Exactly the opposite. I’m not sure how other books fared against the plant people from the Empyre event, but the mutants didn’t even have to break a sweat.

Omega level mutants…damn they can kick some ass.

My Impressions:

  • What works: We get to see Magneto go killer mode.
  • What I could do without: The Empyre crossover. It’s a LAME story guys! Quit pushing it!
  • But how did it look?: There were two modes; too much shadow, too much dust. Overall, I can live with it.
  • Crossover Fatigue: So not only do I need to know what’s going on in the title spanning Empyre event, I also have to keep up with X-Men continuity? Mavel…please STOP! Keep the damned events and regular titles separate please. I promise that I will stop buying ALL of your X-books if you keep pushing me to buy “just one more.”
The results of a coordinated Magma, Iceman, Magneto attack…no more enemies.

Notable Appearances/Events:

  • Magneto (Erik Leshiningiereirer)
  • Iceman (Robert Drake)
  • Magma (Amara Juliana Olivians)
  • Magik (Ilyana Rasputin)
  • Exodus (Bennet Du Paris)
  • Summoner (Arakko)
  • Anole (Victor Borkowski)
  • Loa (Alain Ryan)
  • Rockslide (Santo Vaccarro)

Bottom Line: 4 Stars!

So…Let me sum this up for you. The X-Men (meaning all of the mutants on Krakoa) have been strategising their defenses. So when the time comes, don’t you dare disbelieve that Sinister and Cyclops can play nice together!
