I love it now almost as much as I did then - a good 17 years ago - with the added bonus of nostalgia. The art is okay - unlike other reviewers Andy Kubert was always a favourite of mine at the time and Greg Capullo (whose work here is still quite rough) has been my favourite comic book artist for many years now bar, perhaps, Todd McFarlane.
X-Cutioner's song has a GREAT villain, Stryfe, my personal favourite Apocalypse has quite a lot of stage time, Sinister pulls the strings from behind the scenes and you have the X-Men, X-Factor and X-Force joining forces - for the most part - to overcome the evil villain. The plot has many threads, quite a few theatres of action with a great collaboration between Wolvie, Cable and Bishop and it was good to see Madrox again and the early nineties x-costumes.
I must admit crossovers were a pain when growing up as they cost me most of my allowance but X-Cutioner's song provided me with hour upon hour of enjoyable escapism and still provides much of that today.
Maybe new collectors or readers should look at more recent collections but I do think that this was a really good period for the x-titles but, of course, I'm biased.
Four stars and a half.
The story is about stryfe a mad man from the future who plans to destroy the x-teams and cable, starting with proffesor x. This x-over includes all three x-teams x-factor, x-force and the x-men. This i a great story with brilliant art work. It not only has some great fight sequences but some great emetional events.
This storyline left a very big repercution namely the Legacy Virus which would be the biggest threat to mutant kind during the 90's.

It's ugly because the pencils are woeful and the dialogue... Read more
