4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining adventures, 14 Sept. 2013
Squirr-el (The Metroplis, England) - See all my reviews
This review is from: X-Men: Blank Generation (Paperback)
The connected stories running through issues #30-35 of X-Men are collected as X-Men: Blank Generation. These are entertaining adventures, though nothing special. In the first - four-part - story, a mad scientist discovers the graves of a group of `proto-mutants', from which he clones and genetically tampers with some DNA to create a series of `monsters', which the X-Men track down. They eventually capture one, empathise and communicate with him, and track down the mad scientist for revenge. The second story involves a loony cult leader who has acquired a sample of the cloned DNA which he uses to mutate himself. Unfortunately, this is considered an act of biological warfare by people with missiles, and the X-Men have to kidnap him while stopping the ship full of deluded acolytes from being blown up. They also have to do all the above without Scott Summers knowing why they are doing it, because Storm has fallen out with him in a previous story. Throw in some excellent characterisation and a few sub-plots, and that's about it. It is well illustrated and scripted, and makes for an uncomplicated and entertaining read.
