Uncanny X-men #16 Review

by @Comic_Star on Jan 16, 2014

Magneto is on a mission to make a point! Will his weakness be his shortcoming?

The Good

Of all the X stories available I have followed this the least. As an X-Men fan I have always liked Magneto's character. The cover is also really amazing. The story is centrally focused around Magneto. Scott Summers has no role in this issue. Magneto is concerned with finding a group of mutants who have been attacking the X-Men with Sentinel robots.

This issue features a strong leading roll with Magneto. It is easy to follow , and transitions well into other scenes. The issues I have read in Uncanny X-Men were all good.

The Not So Good

This issue does not feature a lot of action, but enough to keep the excitement. Fans of other X-Men titles may find it frustrating that the X-Men are not featured as a team on a mission type of story. Issue #16 is heavily centered on Magneto and his goals. With this in mind, other fans of Magneto may really enjoy this issue.

The Bottom Line

The issue seems to be setting the tone for a big event. Readers can tell that the writers are leading to something huge. Readers may enjoy this issue, but it does leave you wondering what's next? If you read Uncanny you may already have this issue, if not you can skip it without missing a beat. I love the story telling. I may even consider adding this to a pull-list. By featuring Magneto some X fans might find the issue lacking without the other X-Men team members. I would give this issue an above mediocre score. It's not the most exciting comic issue, but also not completely terrible.

3.5 / 5
