    A little uneven, as these sorts of anthologies tend to go. The Magneto and Mystique stories were probably the best of the bunch. A little uneven, as these sorts of anthologies tend to go. The Magneto and Mystique stories were probably the best of the bunch.

    While the X-Men are away, the villains will play - with X-Men Blue, Red, and Gold all going on, some of the villains are feeling a bit neglected, and they decided to band together and get their own series of one-shots instead so you don't forget who they are. Or something like that. Who knows? We open with a Magneto story by Chris Claremont and Dalibor Talajic, which I thought was going to be extremely wordy and frustrating, but it was actually pretty good.

Or something like that. Who knows? We open with a Magneto story by Chris Claremont and Dalibor Talajic, which I thought was going to be extremely wordy and frustrating, but it was actually pretty good. It's very light on the Magneto and focuses more on the Eric side of things, and manages to show the state of his mind right now after everything that he's been through recently in X-Men Blue without beating you over the head with continuity. Scott Auckerman, Nick Bradshaw, and André Araujo tackle a Mojo story, which is mostly just played for laughs. It draws a little on the X-Men Blue/Gold crossover Mojo Worldwide, but it's nothing you really need. Mojo's a pretty one note character, and although this goes a little way towards making him a bit more comprehensive, it'll all soon be forgotten, I'm sure. Seanan Maguire and Marco Failla's Mystique story is one of the stronger entries, with some very interesting insights into how Raven's mind works, and how sometimes she can straddle the line between good and evil, and how other times she tips very sharply one way or the other. There's a lot of good set-up and pay-off in this short issue that shows great understanding not just of Mystique as a character but how to use comic real estate in the best way possible. Robbie Thompson and Shawn Crystal's Juggernaut story is the worst of the bunch I think. It mostly takes place inside Cain's head, but it doesn't give us anything new that Juggernaut hasn't already been through before, although the ending does intrigue me - if it's picked up on, my interest might be piqued a little more. Emma Frost, by Leah Williams and Chris Bachalo, is probably my favourite (although not just because Emma's my fave out of the six characters). This one really does pick up the pieces from the end of X-Men Blue as well as re-position Emma right where she needs to be - at the top, and Williams does it while sucking the reader into Emma's plan just as much as the X-Men, which makes her inevitable-in-hindsight betrayal even more delicious. Plus Bachalo art is always good. Finally, each of these issues included an 8 page Apocalypse back-up which is collected all at once in the end of the trade. This is only slightly better than the Juggernaut story - it's far too long, overwrought in its monologue, and just not that interesting at all. For a change, I can actually rank these stories - usually I'm not able to do that because ranking things gives me anxiety, but this time it was a very clear hierarchy. Emma Frost Mystique Magneto Mojo Apocalypse Juggernaut So, as with all anthology books, your mileage may vary. But 3 great stories, one middling one, and then two poor ones, is a pretty good mix, I'd say.

    X-Men Black was a collection of short stories about various members of the X-Men series. As such the strength of the volume is a direct result of the quality of the stories. To me it was rather a hit or miss proposition. The Magneto story? It was a meh story which exists to virtue-signal pretentious SJW tropes. The Mojo story also suffers from the same brand of stupidity. Seriously? Mojo is in love with some stupid hipster girl? yeah?

But then things began to improve as some better stories appeared. The story about Mystique breaking into Trask Industries was actually decent; the Juggernaut story had potential but never really achieves it fully. The Emma Frost story was slightly better, but they saved the best for last- the Apocolypse story about evolution was actually quite good. Thus when looked at as a total package this was a 2 star volume. Most of the stories are borderline detritus but a couple of decent and one good story rescue the book. Sort of. 2 stars.

Does my judgment of these stories also line up exactly with how much I like these characters in general: more or less yes. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    a mixed bag of short stories involving some of the x-mens villians. Some stories I liked, the emma frost, mojo and apocalypse are fun. The magneto and Juggernaut felt under developed and just too short. The mystique story I'm indifferent about, it was good but i pretty much forgot about it. The art is all over the place, mostly bad, i did enjoy Bachalo. You can skip this and you wont miss it. a mixed bag of short stories involving some of the x-mens villians.

    The X-Men are full of superb gray characters, many of whom started out as pure villains but gained nuance and redemption at the hands of great characters. Unfortunately, most of them have been re-blackened in more recent years at the hands of much less proficient craftsmen. This is the story of several of those interesting, once-gray characters.

Also Mojo, who's never been the least bit interesting. The Magneto story has the nuance and graying that you'd hope for this character, which perhaps shouldn't be a surprise, as it's written by Chris Claremont, who introduced nuance to Magneto way back in the '80s. The Mojo story is shockingly funny, and I say that as someone who usually hates Mojo stories. The Mystique portrays her, very typically, as a sociopathic killer, but has a lot of fun putting together a caper, pretty successfully. The Juggernaut story is an absolute waste of space, as it's a long delusional dream-sequence/test. The Emma Frost story spends some effort trying to repair the character assassination of the Death of X miniseries, and maybe sort of does, but I'm not convinced this is the Emma Frost anyone wants to read about at this point; we'll see. Finally, the Apocalypse story, which was spread out over the other five issues, has about half an issue worth of good insight into Apocalypse, then four and a half issues of pointless shaggy dog story. Overall, this book had more good stories than bad, but I'm not convinced it's of any importance.

    Read as individual issues. I love the concept but any collection of shorts by various creators is going to be a mix of high points, low points and averageness. That said, overall, I enjoyed this collection and highly recommend it. Normally, I wouldn't badmouth something but the low point for me of this collection is the Apocalypse story. He's one of my favorite X characters and the story didn't really work for me. The art was gorgeous, which is the only other bad mark I'll give. The Emma Frost st Read as individual issues.

    X-Men Black is a series of 6 stories featuring typical X-villains and what is going on with them in their current continuity. Summaries: Magneto - Befriending a diner waitress, Erik shows her there is no need to fear mutants. Unfortunately, between some unruly townspeople and an attack from O.N.E., Magneto does little to change the minds of all... yet is still an ultimate badass... Mojo - Stuck on Earth, Mojo is getting lonely.

But which side will Mojo be on when the Half-Sentinel attacks? Mystique - Raven is on a mission to save new mutant Whitney James. Though the motives are pure, she goes about it in a truly amazing way, as only a shapeshifter can. Juggernaut - In a very meta and supernatural story, Juggernaut must prove he is still worthy of the Crimson Gem of Cyttorak, taking on a cult and Cyttorak himself! Will he still be Unstoppable when he psyche is somewhat fragmented. Emma Frost - Emma comes to the X-Men (meeting them at a version of Walmart LOL) with a plan to overthrow and stop the Hellfire Club's mistreatment of mutants. Thinking she will be getting rid of the organization, she instead overthrows it and takes the title of Black King herself, essentially now the head of the whole Hellfire Club. Apocalypse - In trying to find a body to increase his lifespan again, his Celestial tech malfunctions, and he ends up in either Earth's past or an alternate timeline. Devolving back to a primate state, he is still able to overcome and not only regains his new body, but takes out quite a few enemies along the way. (This whole story I kept waiting for him to get a Green Lantern ring due to the sheer will he extruded!) All in all, more than likely a blip on the radar in the continuity (except for Emma's), but all well written and nice to see a story from their points of view. Strong recommend.

    These are a series of vignettes that plays with the villains of the X-team rooster that are morally ambiguous and have been on both sides of the X-men's team. The artists and the writers vary greatly, and aside from being part of the end of the three colored X-titles (Gold, Blue, Red), it seems both refreshing and slight.

Chris Claremont and Dalibor Talajic take on Magneto, which does use some of the X-men blue continuity, has normal verbosity of Claremont and doesn't move the plot along, but does explore Magneto's psychology in a viable way. It's Claremont, it should. Scott Auckerman, Nick Bradshaw, and André Araujo to a very slight and humorous take on Mojo is fun but doesn't do much to for anything. It feels like a side-plot from early X-Factor book. Seanan Maguire and Marco Failla's Mystique story is solid: her moral ambiguity and slippery identity are explored in a way that makes it clear why she is not an X-men consistently but why she is often on the side of right momentarily. Robbie Thompson and Shawn Crystal's Juggernaut is mostly internal and convoluted, which there some interesting ground, the psychological elements aren't new. Leah Williams and Chris Bachalo's returning Emma Frost to Hellfire club as the Black King and having her betray the X-men in a convincing way that doesn't violate her character growth under Whedon and Bendis is solid. It is a return to form like the Claremont Magneto story but, unlike the Magneto entry, actually does have plot implications. Then lastly there is an 8-page Apocalypse serial compiled together which somewhat adds to Apocalypses origins, but is quite uneventful ultimately. This is interesting and several chapters are quite good, but it doesn't seem to be much consequence and is wildly inconsistent.

Each story was felt completed, was true to the character and showed them improving on themselfs (albeit in a varying levels of crual/horrifying). Which is to be expected because their villians.

Spoilers----------------------- *Magneto story was rather sweet, in which he delts with young humans who ethier accepted or hated mutants. *Emma frost's story was a about a gabit to increase her power. By taking over the hell fire club. In her own way she was trying to be a hero. *mystique's story is the one of the most disturbing and malicious. In which she bacisly raises tensions and animosity between humans and mutants, by framing a mutant child for a crime they did not commit. She glotes calling it her craft, deception like this is the deadlist aspect of mystique's powers. *Juggernauts's story was a little boring. Basicly he found a way to get even stronger by becoming even angrier then he already was. *Mojo's story was a little cringe worthy, but it was also funny and strangly cute. In the story Mojo finds people like him more when he is nice/a hero. Apocalypse's story was philosophical and kinda trippy. He is experimenting on people he calls lab rats, and is then turned into a lab rat himself. During which time he has to survive without the abilies he is used to having. Rather then finding the experince humbling and feeling empathy for what his lab rats endure. His feelings of supiors grow, because even in a weakened state he out witted them. Each story was interesting if your a fan of any of the X-men villians, I highly recommend getting this book.

    Super mixed. Not only is this a collection of short stories about various X-Men villains and anti-heroes, each one is by a different author. The Magneto, Juggernaut, and Apocalypse stories are ok. There's nothing particularly wrong with them, but there's also nothing terribly interesting about them, either.

Sure, I buy that Mojo spends his days off becoming buddies with Glob (who's far too good for him) and romancing his very own pink-haired Manic Pixie Dream Girl. What the hell? Mystique and Emma's stories are well worth reading, but for the love of God skip Mojo's.

The art isn't my cup of tea in that story either but things pick up after that first story. I liked the character of physically repulsive Mojo pining for the heart of a pink-haired urban waif, the art was fine too by Nick Bradshaw and Andre Lima Araujo. The Mystique story was so-so written, kinda like a lot of the Harley Quinn stories I've come across - "I'm such a bad girl, killing untold numbers of innocent people, but I'm so darn cute that you gotta just love me!" I'm no X-Men scholar but maybe that's how a lot of Mystique stories are and I just haven't come across them yet but so far in the other X-Men comix I've read I like the character and her shape-shifting abilities, even if she has a psychopathic history, I like her when she's w/the good guys. In short (too late!) she's not a good guy in this story and though it is ably drawn by Marco Failla, leaves a bad taste in one's mouth after having been digested. Juggernaut story is okay, he's just a mixed-up kid inside, I get it. The art is alright, nothing to get too excited about. Then it ends w/an overlong Apokalypse story at the end of the anthology which has dynamite coloring but a weak story of going to the limits of the character's abilities and back again which as soon as you see "Part One of Five," at the beginning strikes fear into the heart of this erstwhile comic reader. The art is cool though - Geraldo Borges and Rachelle Rosenberg on coloring which is a name I've noted before but can't for the life of me remember when. I almost gave this 4 stars for the Bacholo art on Emma Frost alone but the other stories (except for Mojo) bring it down to a 3 star rating.

The others were all really well done, though, and unique in their approaches. Magneto managed to avoid being too cliche by retelling the same story beats over and over. It covers the expected points, but I liked what it did with the rest of the content. Mystique was interesting because it balanced her chaotic nature with being heroic. It was also well done showing her shapeshifting through the whole thing. Mojo was surprisingly endearing, but I also felt like it was completely counter to all of his characterization I’ve seen before. Juggernaut was also a fascinating read. It wasn’t overly complex or layered, but I loved the visual style, and I feel like it did some setting up for future conflicts. I think my favorite was Emma Frost. I’m a big fan of hers to begin with, and this story just emphasized all of her badassery. It also seemed to cement some of the better parts of her characterization from the last few years and how she walks the line of being a villain (more than recent stories that tried to just paint her as a villain again). My biggest problem with it was a couple of panels that showed Emma walking and Bachalo gave her this slouched posture that just did not seem like Emma. It also didn’t match other panels that showed her closer up. Anyway, it’s an interesting anthology with some well done stories, but certainly nothing essential or overwhelmingly fantastic.

In the same year where DC just produced a dark, villain-centric masterpiece in the form of Joker, Marvel decided to make their X-Men villains proponents of social change and espouse political agendas either directly or ironically, and in the most inoffensive way possible. These villains have been completely stripped of any semblance of evil in order to "humanize" them. Watch as Mojo overcomes his inceldom and personal insecurities to ask a cute girl out. This comic also directly insults people who prefer heroes in their traditional form (e.g. Thor). A completely wasted opportunity to develop villains in a meaningful way in order to peddle social change. I will continue to read Thor comics from Marvel, because that's my dude, but that's where my support ends.

    A volume of one-shots exploring the psyches of some of the most famous X-Men villains seems like a good idea and it leads to a cool title, but is it worth reading? Sorta. The first two issues were misses for me as the Magneto issue was wordy and preachy (and just not all that engaging).

What was not great was the Apocalypse short story at the end of each issue. I just didn't find it all that engaging and the ending didn't go anywhere all that interesting though I did like the sketchy art because it is something different than what you see from Marvel. If you can read this in Marvel Unlimited or cherry pick issues on Comixology, I would skip the first two issues to save some time and prevent a little boredom as the last three issues are the ones worth your time.

    A handful of one-shot stories featuring various X-Men villains. The Magneto one was terrible and extremely heavy-handed (please stop giving Chris Claremont jobs), the Mojo one was ridiculous and adorable, the Mystique one was pretty good, the Juggernaut one was fine, I guess, the Emma Frost one was pretty good too (with sweet Chris Bachalo art!), and the Apocalypse one was... weird as hell.

    Pretty much the next steps for Magneto, Juggernaut and Emma Frost; a great day in the life story for Mystique and a pointless Mojo story, which at least for a change was actually funny. One of those books you don't is worth reading until you see what happens here feeds into main continuity?

    Originally bought this for the issue on Magneto, but I did enjoy the other chapters as well. Sort of a peak into the private lives of the villains. Also, I got a kick out of the Mojo satire on comicsgate.

    As a collection by various writers and artists, it's a bit of a mixed bag... But overall worth a read in my opinion. I particularly liked the Mojo tale. I imagine every writer going forward will ignore it but I would probably pay for a monthly book of the adventures of Glob and Mojo.

    I liked this anthology of short stories about some of the x men villains. My favorite was probably Mojo, it really paints him in an interesting light and was very entertaining. Some of the other stories were pretty weak but overall it was a pretty good read.

    I kind of liked these stories with the focus on X-men villains as heroes. The Claremont Magneto story was really solid.

    I would have rated higher, but honestly isn’t care for the Juggernaut or Apokolyps issues.

    These are fine. I didn't love the Mystique story and the Juggernaut one was dull, but the Emma Frost one seems rather important. Plus, the Mojo story cracked me up. These are fine.

    This loosest of collections doesn't really seem to have a purpose. This loosest of collections doesn't really seem to have a purpose.
