What you need to know:

The original X-men are back on Earth, but whilst they have been gone, Magneto’s war has taken its toll on him and clearly, he is going down that old dark path again.

What just happened?

Magneto shows Jean what is in his mind: his past, his present, and who he truly is. He is on the border of being the Magneto who has not been on this road of redemption, rather, he is the one who is dangerous and deadly. The one who cannot be trusted, nevertheless, we see Jean agree to work with him. Despite how mad it seems, she consents to the methodology, what this means for everyone? You’ll see soon.

Action! Magneto is suited up and attacking the Hellfire Club in full fury. He’s after the White Queen, and the original Five X-Men join the party too late. They bear witness to a destroyed club. Who finds Emma Frost first? Magneto? Or the Original 5?

Final Thoughts

There are a few great moments in this issue. Such as Magneto referring to his dark side as a part of him just waiting to come out, the X-Men knowing they are going back, and that they will remember nothing. However, this time period has one final mission to achieve, and this could actually be it. The O5 seeing Briar, from the Magneto series, as some sort of consultant, and she provides plenty of warnings for them. This is a fantastic start to what could possibly be one of its final arcs. The story and action that X-Men Blue has going for it, keeps it in its spot of one of my favourite X-titles at present.

I have been into comics since the early 90's and my main passion has been X-men I collect books, figures and any collectiables I can get my hands on. For shoot the breeze I have the pleasure opening my eyes to new worlds and adventures. I also do the Across the Pond Trades where I get an opportunity to look at trade paperbacks and review them via our YouTube channel. I also have my own Facebook page and Youtube called Smerdp which is full of plastic goodness. Many Thanks Paul
Summary
The time-displaced X-Men continue to follow Magneto. But at what cost? They bear witness to Magneto's fury against the White Queen. X-Men Blue continues to impress me.
Good
  • Magento on Warpath
  • Emma Frost better as a villian
  • Orginal X-men at their best
Bad
  • Bloodstorm in the back ground again
  • Hank, Angel, Iceman still not getting enough screentime
