    This volume is one of those tie-in books that, unless the reader reads every freakin’ page of the crossover event, leaves the aforementioned reader with questions. But then these things are as messy as, when my then two year old, found a squirt bottle of chocolate sauce and liberally doused himself and the carpeting with the entire contents.

Some questions raised: When and how did Sabretooth revert back to being an evil douche? When did the Wolf-God (aka Mr. Wolfsbane) and lil Wolf-God Jr. (aka Wolfie) make a deal with the smokin’, but evil, Enchantress? Do stripes make me look fat? Is Cyclops finally back on his meds? This is Mr. Reasonable as opposed to Mr. Flip-the-Bird-to-Humans guy. (view spoiler)[ What the hell does Wolfsbane’s murder have to do with The War of the Realms? (hide spoiler)] I’ll answer the latter question. Not a hell of a lot. But it’s included here anyway. Basically, the X-Men battle the armies of the dark elf, Mankowitz, and defend humans who, afterwards will return to hating and fearing them. Rinse and repeat. Bonus: I always dig me some Mutant Maddrox Multiple Man madness. Bottom Line: Rosenberg, as a writer, has had some fun ideas, but his output is usually a hit or a miss with me. Here, it almost strikes the mark. Pick a caption or write your own: I am the Walrus, you are the Egg-man That is one tough egg to crack. The incredible, form-edible egg. Jingle Bells, Cyclops smells; Wolverine laid an egg

    This has been the War of the Realms book I liked the least. Not many good things I can say about the main story. It is rushed not my favourite cast of X-men characters either. Unless someone is a huge X-men fan this will not bring anyone into the fold. The best part about this volume were the short stories at the end staring Dr Strange and the Young Avengers, this is the only really I would give this book 2 to 2.5 stars.

    This is really just an extension of Rosenberg's X-Men run. He was allowed to do whatever he wanted since soon none of it would matter once H0X/PoX came along. Rosenberg does some interesting things. The X-Men become the last outpost of humanity in Manhattan once the frost giants take over. It reminds me quite a bit of when the X-Men and New Mutants went to Asgard back in the 80's. The 3 issue mini is pretty great. The baggage along with it to raise the price, not so much.

X-Men #17 gets reprinted here as well in the regular Uncanny X-Men: Wolverine and Cyclops book. And then there's some garbage War of the Realm stories featuring Dr. Strange and then Hulkling and Wiccan.

    Another dud entry in Matthew Rosenberg’s run on the X-Men. Rosenberg’s only goal for this book seems to be to see how many X-Men he can kill off. This is the worst run on the X-Men since Chuck Austen’s car crash of a run some years back. The only stars I’ve given this are purely for the artwork.

    Three stars for being too short, it could be really good with a couple more issues.

    2 Uncanny X-men are the next in my War of the Realms side stories and it's slightly less interesting than Spider Man and Daredevil. This has New Mutants so I'm obviously out of my depth if they're part of the team. This is another short volume so you know early on that this isn't going to maintain long arc payoffs. Why the 2? Dull and it's here for the money only. I'm in this for the long haul so I'm planning on reading all the War of the Realms storylines.

    Necessary if you were reading Rosenbergs Uncanny run at this time. Confusing if you were just reading it on its own. I didn't read the main War of the Realms stuff, so a lot of what's going on really doesn't make any sense. Necessary if you were reading Rosenbergs Uncanny run at this time.

    Very short, full of action, artwork is great. Really enjoyed it. Very much The Walking Dead meets X-Men.

    War Of The Realms is wreaking havoc across the Marvel Universe, and even the X-Men aren’t safe as Matthew Rosenberg chooses to tell some pretty important stories in this event tie-in mini-series that not everyone reading his main run will have read. That was a good choice, I’m sure. Most of this tie-in is dedicated to bringing Sabretooth back to the side of villainy, and murdering some more X-Men, which seems to be Rosenberg’s mandate in light of Jonathan Hickman’s new magical ability to resurrec War Of The Realms is wreaking havoc across the Marvel Universe, and even the X-Men aren’t safe as Matthew Rosenberg chooses to tell some pretty important stories in this event tie-in mini-series that not everyone reading his main run will have read. That was a good choice, I’m sure. Most of this tie-in is dedicated to bringing Sabretooth back to the side of villainy, and murdering some more X-Men, which seems to be Rosenberg’s mandate in light of Jonathan Hickman’s new magical ability to resurrect everyone who died anyway. It upped the stakes at the time, even if some of the deaths seemed exceedingly cheap and even off-panel at certain points. It’s nice that an event has casualties, but they’re not treated with the same importance as they are in the main Uncanny X-Men book which makes me wonder if Rosenberg needed some more panel space, maybe an extra issue? Either way, it’s a decent story. The feeling of hopelessness and struggle isn’t new to the X-Men, but Rosenberg frames it around the War Of The Realms and the X-Men’s attempt to rescue survivors pretty well. It also gives some context surrounding Hope’s actions in the main series, which is another reason I find it odd that Rosenberg decided to focus on that here rather than over there, but again, panel space seems to be a problem. Overall I think this mini-series was meant to be a longer arc of Uncanny X-Men itself, and Rosenberg treats it as such even if Marvel and his readers probably won’t. Pere Perez’s art is as reliable as ever, if not particularly impressive; the colours are a bit dull, which doesn’t really help. Also included, because padding, are some stories from War Of The Realms: War Scrolls which are the usual event tie-in fare. The Loki/Young Avengers story is a treat, but the other one is entirely forgettable since I can’t even remember what it was. There’s also issue #17 of the main Uncanny X-Men run, which is murder-lite but pain heavy as the X-Men deal with the loss of yet another comrade, so it’s right in line with the rest of the book, if a bit of an odd choice by Marvel to include it here. Uncanny X-Men’s entry into War Of The Realms is peculiar all around. It’s a good story, but it feels like it should be something else, something bigger, and loses some of its impact as a result. The additional material is fine, if oddly placed, and not a big draw on its own. For War Of The Realms completionists and Uncanny X-Men readers only.

    This is Matthew Rosenberg's X-Men in a nutshell: he brings back a well-beloved character just to kill him one issue later. (Did he know about the changes that were coming to the X-Men after his run? Was he told he could kill whomever he wanted because it didn't matter? Maybe. But it sill cheapens his whole run.) I did enjoy having this crossover written by the actual writer of the comic at the time. But unfortunately that writer just wasn't that great, and so we get some endless fighting.

On the plus side: this really feels apocalyptic in a way that most of the War of the Realms didn't. So, it's a mixed bag, maybe worthwhile if you're holding onto the Rosenberg X-Men issues.

    Not horrible, but I think the whole reboot of the X-Men world happens right after this whole dumb War of the Realms thing. This is not really an X-Men book, while a few of the big guns appear, this is mostly a New Mutants book. So expect a lot of angsty whining and false victories. There are a couple of Avengers / X-Men / Young Avengers stories included to fill this collection out. But those are kind of out of context and just not good. Except for the Young Avengers / Loki bit was good.

    The Uncanny books were excellent. It was like a New Mutants reunion. Great art, solid story, just good! The next X-Men story was sad and was awkward to have in this collection. I didn't care about the Dr. Strange story either, so skip that. The Uncanny books were excellent. It was like a New Mutants reunion. Great art, solid story, just good!

    Wow, what hot garbage. I love Matthew Rosenberg's X-men, but he constantly gets interrupted by events and when he does, his tie-in books seems to suffer. This is no exception. However, the singular Uncanny X-men issue in this (#17) was pretty good. Wow, what hot garbage.

    The actual X-Men story is a big meh. I read this after finishing the rest of Rosenberg's run, so I'd already decided I didn't like his propensity of dull angst and pointless deaths. This is just more of the same. On the other hand, there are two great short stories at the end. One is Doctor Strange, just a very brief character thing that takes a closer look at his actions early in the event. And then there's an actual Young Avengers story.

I was so hoping that somewhere, the non-Asgardian characters who knew Loki best would get a say, and this worked perfectly. Also, I love that team forever and always want more.

    This one, like most TPBs where a book is shoehorned into a crossover, is a bit of a mess. I would give it about 2 stars for that... That said, I freaking love Rosenberg's take on the X-mythos (sure, I have issues with some things but I think it is a run that is really well-written) so it gains a star for just being a little bit more of Rosenberg's run. Where it really falls apart is just what they decided to fill out the TPB with. The main War of the Realms tie-in is really cool and exciting (and This one, like most TPBs where a book is shoehorned into a crossover, is a bit of a mess. I would give it about 2 stars for that...

The main War of the Realms tie-in is really cool and exciting (and that is coming from someone who doesn't like their X-titles mixing with the rest of Marvel...). But that is followed by an X-Men issue that has already been collected in a trade (that has nothing to do with the crossover), a Doctor Strange story (fun but sappy) that has nothing to do with the X-Men, and then a story with characters I don't know that are not X-Men nor seemingly related to the War of the Realms story as it is presented here (I found the story enjoyable for what it was and it has made me interested in checking out these characters but it's just weird to see it here...). If you are reading it just for your x-continuity, I suppose that it just isn't worth the money at all. At any rate, I hope that Rosenberg gets to come back to an x-book at some point. While his stories have had a lot of character deaths, he seems to really *get* these characters. (And I think the deaths were partially because of the reset that he knew was coming, but I digress...)

    While the majority of the X-Men were off in "Age of X-Man", some of the team was left behind on Earth... to fight not only against their enemies left behind, but also to assist in the defense of New York in Midgard during the "War of the Realms". The team (Cyclops, Havok, Moonstar, Magik, Havok, Chamber, Madrox, Karma, Wolfsbane, Banshee, Hope Summers, and Sunspot) assist in rescue efforts in Queens. Their opposition? Tons of frost giants and dark elves... but also Sabretooth.

Overall, a decent Volume, though it always seems to be for me when X-Men are involved. Recommend, but not essential.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Another meh chapter. Probably toughest because we’re so deep into various rosters here. I know a lot of these characters as holdovers from the early 2000’s, but I’m obviously not up to date on whatever backstory Wiccan and Kate Bishop have with Loki so they fell flat. Apparently all the X-Men I know are dead save Wolverine and Cyclops. Also really weird to have a whole WotR arc with Wolfsbane and then suddenly she’s seemingly dead in a one-off? Why put these in the same volume?

    Perez's art is nice, first work of his I've seen. He ain't lazy, either. Rosenberg puts in some nice moments and touches, though there were two moments where I felt the strategies employed by characters were a little lacking. Still, considering I've not been keeping up with the X-Men, I was able to follow along. Perez's art is nice, first work of his I've seen. He ain't lazy, either.

    I can see why people don't like this. It completely derailed a cool story to focus on Wolfsbane's forgotten family and to kill (view spoiler)[Sunspot (hide spoiler)] for no good reason. It was strong at the micro-level but it wasn't the story I wanted to read. I wanted to see where Rosenberg was going from the jump. I can see why people don't like this.

    Better than I thought it would be. We don't get enough Dani Moonstar. Where has she been in the Dawn of X stories? I like New Mutant reunions. A fun group. Some questionable plot logic at times.

    One of the first I’ve read by Rosenberg, and while I really dislike issues like the ones tacked onto the end of this trade, the primary story of the trade works well and is stronger than most event series-adjacent minis.

    This is just incoherent garbage. There is no stand alone continuity from the larger War of the Realms arc. Do not try to read this independently as it will make little sense.

    yeah, maybe my least favorite and most confusing of the War of Realms crossovers. X-men who have died in other issues are alive? And in the attempt to make it all line up it makes no sense.

    No. You don't need to read it to understand the Event, or to have more of it (why?) Or to see what the x-men were doing in-between the event. Forgettable stuff.
