4.0 out of 5 stars This is how wolverine should be written 7 Jan 2009
Format:Paperback
Following on from massive X-men crossover messiah complex, this story stands on its own merits. You do not need to have read messiah complex to enjoy this.
The Art is provided by Ron Garney who dumps his usual clean cut style for a more griity approach, and it pays off. the art suits the writing which is excellent.
the plot is fairly straight forward, what raises it above the norm is the characterisation.

By Sam Quixote TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Even though this is an epilogue to the X-Men series "Messiah CompleX", the book works well as a stand-alone book where Wolverine is hunting down Mystique.

We get the backstory between the two characters, going back to the 1920s when the two meet for the first time and decide to work together, to the present day where Logan is playing cat to Mystique's mouse in the middle east.

Mystique's always been one of the most lethal mutants out there and writer Jason Aaron does a fine job showing just how deadly she can be with her abilities. Logan's character is something Aaron has perfected and is a joy to read, while artist Ron Garney does a fine job drawing the carnage the two wreak on themselves and their surroundings.

Altogether, "Get Mystique" is a good chase thriller story between two fascinating characters that's an excellent, if short, read and a great ending to "Messiah CompleX". Definitely worth a look if you're a Wolverine fan.

As many will know, Wolverine (James 'Logan' Howlett) and Mystique (Raven Darkholme.) This story follows immediately after the mega X-Men event Messiah CompleX and details Logan's quest to hunt down and kill Mystique once and for all.

The artwork is nice and clean with a slightly rough feel to it to give the violent scenes more impact. The story is interesting as it details the long running and deep history between Wolverine and Mystique and gives readers an insight into their relationship.

This book is ideal for fans of either character and those that are interested in learning just how much they know each other and the moments they have shared together.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dull 4 Jan 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
There really isn't much to this comic, it's all rather hollow. Even the flashbacks arent that interesting. Worth checking out if you have a spare twenty minutes, but instantly forgettable. Shame.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome 1 May 2009
By Brock - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read this all in one sitting.

Get Mystique follows Wolverine as he hunts down Mystique after her betrayal of the X-Men. The story is told in two veins: the present, with Wolverine tracking down Mystique and Mystique constantly a step ahead; and the past, with Logan and Mystique working together before he became Wolverine.

The beauty of the story is the way that the two time lines play off each other. In the present you have Wolverine filled with utter rage at everything that Mystique has done. In the past, you have almost a kind of love story between Logan and Mystique.

There are some really good plots twist, and while I feel the overall story doesn't add much to Wolverine's character, it does make Mystique seem a lot deeper.

Aaron knows how to write Wolverine really well and Garney does an awesome job with the art!

5.0 out of 5 stars great trade paperback 7 Nov 2008
By captainspankypants - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is a great trade paperback. I'm not big on a lot of the more convoluted "event" storylines in comics, especially in the X-Men comics, so I tend to skip stuff like the Messiah Complex storyline. This comes right after Messiah Complex, but you don't need to have read that at all to fully understand the plot in this. It's a nice, fairly self-contained story.

It's obvious from the title, but the story basically comes down to Wolverine chasing Mystique all over, seeking revenge for her most recent betrayal. They throw in some flashbacks to provide a little more emotional context, and both mutants get lots of chances to use their powers in creative and cool ways. The absolutely BRUTAL fight at the end provides a great climax that's sure to satisfy.

The artwork is great too. It suits the tone of the story, and all of the action scenes and plot twists are depicted well (Mystique, as a shape-shifter, tends to use a lot of visual tricks to try and squeeze out of bad situations, and they're all shown marvelously). Wolverine and Mystique both just exude "cool." Plus there's a lot of explosions, which is always a big plus. :)

Considering the low cover price, this is a no-brainer. If you like the two main characters at all, you should definitely pick this one up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Wolverine solo action packed 24 Nov 2008
By Dave X - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book has the formula of a good comic book, it has a real good art(Ron Garney definitly rocks), and the story of Jason Aaron , is very basic but strong. This arc is about Wolverine's quest to kill Mystique once for all (it was a Cyclop's request after Messiah Complex crossover, that you should read because it is great), the story presents how Wolverine met Mystique for the first time, and why wolverine knows Mystique that much. The story is a little bit short, but has a lot of action, sex, alcohol and Wolverine's admamtium all over. This is a MUST HAVE.

4.0 out of 5 stars Who doesn't Wolverine have a history with? 5 Nov 2012
By THowerton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Collecting Wolverine #62-65 the storyline "Get Mystique" is truth in advertising. Cyclops orders Wolverine to take Mystique out for her betrayal (shocker there) of the X-Men. What is interesting about this story is a story thread dealing in double-crosses over how Wolverine met Mystique, the ensuing romantic entanglement, and how Mystique uses the episode to throw dirt in Wolvie's face as he attempts to eviscerate her. She comes across yet again as a brazen, cunning, and truly worthy foe. And if you're one of the many fanboys who finds her exotically sexy you won't be disappointed here. While the ending is a copout IMO the overall story fares well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mystique: The Best There Is At What SHE Does 16 Nov 2011
By S. H. Wells - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Collecting: Wolverine 62-65

Synopsis:
Mystique is one of the most fascinating characters in the Marvel universe. She is crafty, and that duplicity is multiplied ten fold by her mutant shape shifting ability. Get Mystique takes place following X-Men: Messiah Complex and while Messiah CompleX is a good read, it isn't necessary for enjoying this graphic novel. During the Messiah CompleX Mystique did what she does best: trick and betray the X-Men. Cyclops orders a hit on Mystique to end her shenanigans once and for all. And wolverine willingly accepts the role of assassin as he tracks Mystique across the middle east. The story is told through non-linear flashes back to the 1920s when Mystique and Wolverine first met and forward to various points in the present in Baghdad, Afghanistan, Iran, and the mountains and deserts that fill these countries. If the US had an image problem over there before, Mystique and Wolverine's battles will not help any!

Pros & Cons:
This graphic novel is a great self-contained story of an epic persuit between two age old enemies. The art and script are strong. I found the 1920s Mystique/Wolverine origin story an especially great addition to Marvel lore. The only con I can think of is the very end: very little is set up in story to justify Wolverine's final decision (I will leave it vague so as not to spoil a great graphic novel for anyone.

Summary:
An easy buy for x-fans because of the history and epic battle between Wolverine and Mystique. If you follow the X-Men (or the dark assassin squad known as X-Force), you'll want to add this graphic novel to your collection.
