X-Men #11, “One war, one mutant”

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!



Yeah, I'm the resident curmudgeon. So what? Here's what you really need to know about me. I'll wager that I've got more years of gaming, comics, movies and pop culture than anyone here. I'm also a working stiff. I spend 50-60 hours a week at work...so just like you, my time is valuable. If something is a waste of my time, it's probably a waste of your time. What does that mean? It means I'm going to tell it like it is. If it's not worth your money, I'll be the first to say so. If it's a waste of your time...you can count on me to tell you. In short...I'm looking out for you so listen up!
