    It always makes me slightly uncomfortable when the last part of a lengthy story arc is written by a different writer to the rest of the story. You know something has happened behind the scenes and that it probably wasn't nice. It also usually makes for a clumsy ending to the story, which is definitely the case here. It's a shame as I was really enjoying this run right up until the end.

    3.25 stars. This run had been teasing Jamie Braddock by having him randomly pop up here and there. This volume brings that full circle. Jamie was the one who brought Betsy back to life as he would need her for an ancient coming threat. This was just ok. The second story, which spills into the annual, has Storm out in Africa looking to stop a warlord. A lot of small villages who had mutants protecting them were now left unguarded as the House of M event left those mutants without powers. This war 3.25 stars.

This warlord took advantage an attacked these villages to recruit the kids as soldiers. Storm called in the X-men for back up and the fire fight began. I liked this arc the most. Over all another decent volume.

    I feel like this story doesn't deserve any substantial amount of my time, so I'm just going to try to accurately recreate my feelings upon reading this for the first time several years ago. SERIOUSLY, THIS IS WHAT WE WERE WAITING TO SEE? THIS IS WHAT ALL THOSE HUNDREDS OF IRRITATING CAMEOS FROM JAMIE OVER THE LAST TWO DOZEN ISSUES WAS BUILDING TO? WHAT THE FUCK EVEN WAS THIS? SOMETHING ABOUT ALIENS AND EGYPTIAN GODS AND AN ARABIAN BAZAAR OR SOMETHING? This story was... bad. Like, really bad.

Just... bad. Bad. It's not possible to give something no stars, but I wish it was. The only thing I can think of that might merit even half a star was the bit where Jamie explained that he 'tied up' Psylocke's quantum strings, rendering her immune to psychic possession or reality manipulation. Interesting idea. Too bad every other writer after this ignored it completely. To be fair, I don't blame them at all for trying to forget this bland dreck exists. I only wish I could.

    One of the better arcs to come out of this run. Jamie Braddock is always a fun character.

    Continuing the great X-read of 2017 that has now stretched into 2018... Okay. So I am way behind on reviewing these x-books that I have been reading. So I am going to just kind of ramble about all of them and copy/paste my thoughts. Which will make for a bit of a mess and I am sorry.

Quick ramblings: Cable and Deadpool continues to be surprisingly good though a little more scattered in these couple of volumes. X-Men the Blood of Apocalypse was rushed in my opinion... Phoenix Warsong was pretty decent. Melodramatic but not a bad story. (and when is a Phoenix story not melodramatic?) New X-Men is a good series with some great characters that grow volume by volume. Uncanny First Foursaken was not my cup of tea really. Black Panther: The Bride was probably much better to BP readers. As part of an X-Men run, it can probably be skipped. Wolverine Origins born in blood was not particularly memorable. Astonishing X-Men will possibly get its own review as it is a reread and interesting as such... Civil War was one of the first times in my life that I could say that the movie was better than the book. For the most part, it was really boring to me. The X-Men universe tie-ins were only slightly more interesting to me. X-factor continues to be a delight. Exiles continues to be great. I need to get back to writing reviews of these as I finish them. Reading them in quick succession like this, I begin to forget what happened in individual books (which I suppose equally speaks to the books themselves and my memory...)

    This comic was pretty good. It had as it's main character Psylocke, a character that when I read about her in the 90's was mostly just there for eye candy for the male readers. However in this comic she is kicking ass and taking names as she battles at the Xavier Institute all the way to an alternate dimension and back to Earth again.

The backup story of Storm fighting an evil dictator in Africa was also enjoyable and it gave us a lot of insight into her character and what she wants out of a relationship. Any fan of the X-Men will enjoy this comic. Check it out!

    Seemed short. Two stories: (1) The origin of Jamie Braddock (does he have no superhero name?) It winds up being a little bit of a weird magic reverse Apocalypse thing. Jamie is some times fun in the manic energy he brings (and other times unpleasant). Here, after he does his magic appearance, the story kind of dries up. Then there's a second story but I don't remember it. Oh, now I do remember it. It's essentially a Storm solo story (with the team in it) in whcih she fights real gunman and mental Seemed short.

    This volume had two pretty good stories, but the First Foursaken was way too rushed. It could have used another issue, maybe two. The story was too big to handle in just 3 issues. The Storm one-shot was also pretty good, as she navigates her fear of family. The art was good in both stories...but the colorist in the first issue was bad. Storm looks white. Like, unrecognizably white.

    This is another convoluted Claremont X-book with too much going on, and not enough rational explanation. The pacing is off, the characters are jumbled, but Chris Bachalo's art, at least, keeps it looking good.

    I may be rating this a little low, and it may be my fault for having missed all the preceding installments of the story arc and been continually distracted by questions like "Rachel who?" "Phoenix had a daughter?" "When did so-and-so die?", but it seemed to me that if one is going to use yet another of the recurring immanent-destruction-of-the-universe plots the story and action should be, well, bigger. This wasn't complex or intense enough. That said, it was enjoyable and I appreciated not havi I may be rating this a little low, and it may be my fault for having missed all the preceding installments of the story arc and been continually distracted by questions like "Rachel who?"

I'll have to go back and find more of the numbers with Psylocke's brother so I learn more about she died and he brought her back.

    The storyline is mediocre at best, and feels a little self-indulgent on Chris Claremont's part. The only things that I liked about it were Chris Bachalo's art on some of the issues (which is excellent as always), the involvement of Cannonball on the team yet again, and Psylocke's prominent role, even if it was a little bit of a confusing one, but then again, I've never quite understood the crazy character of Jamie Braddock.

    Well, now we know why Psylocke is back. I can't say I'm very satisfied, or that I even understand, but I guess I know. This plotline is very cosmic and very, very abrupt. It's got good art, but the plotting is sort of a mess. It's pretty safely skipped, but if you're a completist, then hey: it's not terrible. Well, now we know why Psylocke is back.

    Two stars may be generous, but I didn't actively dislike it. It seems like a lot of Claremont's return run is like that. Two stars may be generous, but I didn't actively dislike it. It seems like a lot of Claremont's return run is like that.

    Not bad, not great. An average X Men adventure but one that can be safely skipped and not miss any plot. Worth buying though for the extra story at the back about Storm's adventures in Africa.

    Finally we find out about Betsy's brother, and what happened in Africa. Seemed a very straightforward, no surprise, storyline. Finally we find out about Betsy's brother, and what happened in Africa. Seemed a very straightforward, no surprise, storyline.
