5.0 out of 5 stars The New Brotherhood of Evil Mutants?
This volume reprints issues #1-5 of this AvX postscript, wherein Cyclops is sent to jail, where he resolves to die as a martyr to the (new-) mutant cause; Hope Summers goes looking for Cable; the Avengers and Wolverine's X-Men try to help out the devastated areas, only to find that they are not welcome; and there is a bit of searching for the missing former Phoenix...

This review is from: Avengers vs. X-Men: Consequences (Avengers/X-Men) (Paperback)
Despite my feelings towards the whole AVX fiasco that Marvel subjected its readers to last year, I still picked up Consequences (albeit several months after publication) because I wanted to see how Marvel were going to deal with Cyclops. It's one thing to see dozens of characters whaling on each other, like in AVX, which becomes very tiresome and dreary, and it's something else to read about what happens once the dust settles. As such, Consequences is a far better book that AVX - but then nearly anything would have been. Some scrawlings on the side of an underpass by a deranged homeless man in his various bodily fluids would be a better read than AVX!

Cyclops winds up in prison for his crimes except it's a human prison. A maximum security prison, sure, but this is Cyclops we're talking about, former leader of the X-Men. Even in shackles and a restraining visor, the dude is dangerous and should've been put in a SHIELD prison off-world. But he gets put in a human maximum security prison in general population and, of course, winds up escaping.

Unfortunately, little else really happens in this 5-issue book! Hope tries living an ordinary life before giving up and going looking for her dad, Cable. Wolverine shows up at the prison and, predictably, yells and punches Scott. Wolverine leads a group of mutants to Wakanda to try to help out but gets turned back. That's it.

Kieron Gillen's a good writer and does the best he can with what he's given but to be honest, this postscript could've been one, maybe two, issues long instead of the five that it became. All it really does is close out AVX, bridge the gap between that Event and the re-launched Marvel NOW! All-New X-Men series. Like everything AVX related, it's minimal on story, maximum on page count, and that's just not a good approach to making great comics.

5.0 out of 5 stars The New Brotherhood of Evil Mutants?, 19 Mar. 2013

This volume reprints issues #1-5 of this AvX postscript, wherein Cyclops is sent to jail, where he resolves to die as a martyr to the (new-) mutant cause; Hope Summers goes looking for Cable; the Avengers and Wolverine's X-Men try to help out the devastated areas, only to find that they are not welcome; and there is a bit of searching for the missing former Phoenix infected-X-Men. You probably need to have read the main Avengers v. X-Men story to exactly follow some of the nuances, which I haven't (the Scarlet Witch back in the Avengers?), but it is readable nevertheless. The finale is the unveiling of Magneto's new Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, as Cyclops and Wolverine make their latest career choices. At least until the next big Marvel event.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the real series, 26 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Avengers vs. X-Men: Consequences (Avengers/X-Men) (Paperback)
Avengers Vs Xmen, the actual story is a great read and good value. This is a much shorter book for almost the same price. It does tidy things up a bit but isn't a necessary read.
