A pretty decent X-event,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: X-Men: Second Coming (Hardcover)
This is probably my favourite X-Event of the "Messiah-trilogy" (which includes Messiah Complex + Messiah War).
Its an action packed tale featuring a large cast of characters, as usual for X-Men,however i did not find it difficult to follow or confusing, and the artwork was well suited.
The story is concerned with the return of Hope (along w/Cable) from the future, and the subsequent race by the Anti-Mutant agenda to exterminate Hope along with the all the remaining Mutants (whose numbers have dwindled following House of M and are now on the verge of extinction).
There are deaths of 2 high profile characters - X-history tells says this wont be the last we see of them.
Just about all the content is relevant to the story (unlike X-Necrosha).
Recommended for fans of action orientated X-Men stories.
