Characters are strong, interesting and multi-layered and I ended up caring about their loves and losses.
I wasn't keen on one of the key villains of the piece, it was a clever idea that didn't quite work for me but all round a good tale well told.
Torn was a marvel of characterisation and plotting. Without wasting an iota of time in build-up, a bizarre and confusing tale unfolds in which Emma's loyalties are deeply unclear and Cassandra Nova wreaks absolute havoc as only this most potent of villains can. All of the X-Men are attacked in the cruellest possible way and in the end Scott comes through as the real man he is. I know a lot of people dislike Scott but for me he is one of the most realistic characters in the comics world. He, like most of us would in reality, knows how important and hard-won each victory is and generally does what is necessary. Anyway, mini-peon to Summers over, I would say this arc is a significant step-up from Dangerous and finishes all the necessary groundwork for Unstoppable.
Unstoppable is where everything comes together. In amongst a fantastic, epic plot in space, all the various character developments running though the entire series come to a climax; Scott and Emma, Piotr and Kitty (or Peter and Katya, whatever takes your fancy!) and even Beast finds some sort of an answer to the problems bedevilling him.Read more ›
