    Issues 421, 422, & 427 are actually pretty good. 421-422 focus on personal drama at the X Mansion including Juggernaut turning over a new leaf by bonding with a young mutant student. 427 is the best issue hands down with a mostly contained story about Jubilee and Husk dealing with mutant bigotry and Angel trying to use his new healing factor to help people. However issues 423-426 are just awful. 423-424 is the legendary bad and poorly researched story where the Church of Humanity tries to make N Issues 421, 422, & 427 are actually pretty good. 421-422 focus on personal drama at the X Mansion including Juggernaut turning over a new leaf by bonding with a young mutant student. 427 is the best issue hands down with a mostly contained story about Jubilee and Husk dealing with mutant bigotry and Angel trying to use his new healing factor to help people.

It's even stupider than it sounds, trust me. 425-426 involves the aborted wedding of Havok and Polaris which was caused by a bizarre romantic subplot with an anti mutant nurse. 421-422 (4/5) 423-424 (0.5/5) 425-426 (1/5) 427 (4/5)

    i kept reading because I needed to catch up on my recent X-History, but it was sort of like drinking castor oil.

    Tripe. Bad stories, bad art. Three words: Exploding communion wafers.

    Interesting concept, Nightcrawler as a priest.

    So much better than V2, but far from great. The female characters are written poorly and out of character, as is Bobby Drake, the wrap up to Casey's church storyline is beyond ridiculous, Stacy X's exit is both silly and mysoginistic, and I don't even know why Wolverine was included in the book. Ron Garney's art was decent, but Philip Tan was pretty abysmal. This is completist reading only, and again it isn't as bad as I've heard due to lowered expectations, but it's not good.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I should maybe rate this a little less, because there were some pretty large plot holes and the use of psychics to make Kurt think he had been ordained to the priesthood (which is kind of lazy), but I really enjoyed the story and Lorna-Annie-Alex dynamic.

    Yowser! Some high drama with crucified mutants, Husk & Jubiliee's return, the fate of the Church of Humanity, a wedding and a mutant gone made... some great Austen work with his customary character led approach - that's an easy 8 from 12 from me.

    I understand why the Austen run on Uncanny X-Men gets a lot of flack. His dialog isn't great, the Church Of Humanity angle was pretty stupid, and Ron Garney's work on this title is capable but not as exciting as what was going on in the New X-Men run. Apart from the silly Church Of Humanity storyline (which briefly works when they crucify Generation X on the lawn of the Xavier school, but falls apart with the whole "We mind controlled Nightcrawler into thinking he was a priest!" angle), and the t I understand why the Austen run on Uncanny X-Men gets a lot of flack. His dialog isn't great, the Church Of Humanity angle was pretty stupid, and Ron Garney's work on this title is capable but not as exciting as what was going on in the New X-Men run. Apart from the silly Church Of Humanity storyline (which briefly works when they crucify Generation X on the lawn of the Xavier school, but falls apart with the whole "We mind controlled Nightcrawler into thinking he was a priest!" angle), and the teeth-gnashing turn of Polaris as the story unfolds, Austen does a lot of interesting interpersonal work. Even teeth-gnashing Lorna sort of makes sense, given her past storylines and the trauma of Genosha. The Juggernaut arc in this volume, especially as it relates to Professor X and Sammy, is fantastic. The Havoc and Annie portion of the Havoc/Lorna/Annie love triangle is believable, Kurt's faults as a team leader ring true, and Cyclops interactions with Havoc is as well-written as his overreaction to Nightcrawler is ill-conceived. Garney's art is fine and while I like Phillip Tan's work, it feels out of place in this volume. I recommend this for people capable of overcoming their hate for Chuck Austen, X-fans willing to accept interesting character developments despite a silly villainous plot, and enyone excited about Havoc returning to the X-Men books.

    Continuing the "great" x-read of 2017... This one wasn't nearly as bad as Austen's last volume. But unfortunately, there are still just so many problems. Far too many to list (popes don't work that way, explosive communion wafers, Bobby isn't himself at all - neither are Paige, Polaris, Havok.... I could go on for pages.) Also, why does Austen have this weird thing for people coming and going from the team nearly every issue? The team is basically a revolving door at this point.

    This was decent, but the "love interest" thing was laid on pretty thick. I wasn't sure if I was reading X-Men or watching Dawson's Creek (which I've never actually watched so maybe I'm way off here). I felt like they were just going to make everyone hook up in every possible combination. It was like, "Oh no! Villains are trying to destroy the universe, damn Angel is hot." Or 'The Earth is literally about to explode! I'm not sure if I really love Lorna, what should I do?" I liked the Juggernaut st This was decent, but the "love interest" thing was laid on pretty thick.

    Wow, the characterizations now seem to be totally going off the rails. Not the worst X-Men read, but its going downhill quickly.

    I don't really remember this volume. The Austen stuff blurs together a lot. It's, like, hookup city and sometimes lacks a clear core story. Did this one lack a clear story? I don't know.

    Misogynistic junk that reduces so many characters to cartoon caricatures. "I want to be naked with him" What the actual fuck was happening in the Editorial team?
