More About the Author

Before joining Marvel Comics, writer Matt Fraction had already established his reputation as an emerging new talent with his work on Last of the Independents. Fraction's tale of a bank robbery gone wrong earned him a coveted "A" grade from Entertainment Weekly, as well as interest from Marvel. After taking on a short story assignment in the anthology title X-Men Unlimited, Fraction was handpicked to launch two of Marvel's biggest projects for 2006: Punisher War Journal with artist Ariel Olivetti, and Immortal Iron Fist, with co-writer Ed Brubaker and artist David Aja. Both series met with overwhelming critical and fan acclaim, selling out their respective first issues within days of release. This led to two even bigger projects: The launching of Invincible Iron Man, a high-profile first issue premiering the same month as the blockbuster film; and Uncanny X-Men, written in tandem with Immortal Iron Fist partner Brubaker. In addition to his Marvel work, Fraction writes Casanova, an off-beat series illustrated by Gabriel Bá which recently moved to Marvel's Icon imprint. He is also a talented filmmaker and graphic designer, heading up the MK12 firm with a worldwide client base that includes Adidas, MTV and Cartoon Network's Adult Swim. Fraction remains one of Marvel's most popular writers; other credits include The Order and Thor: Ages of Thunder.

Overall, this is a pretty good X-Men story, and leaves the characters in a potentially interesting place for future stories.
Sean Curley
I assume this is a limit on the iwhatever versions too, as this is NOT a Kindle specific problem, as, again, my magazines let me do this as with a regular PDF.
Adeptus Astartes Mechanicus
This book presents the fight for the survival of the mutant race, you will see Cyclops at his best, as the leader the x-men needs.

Format: Hardcover
With the "Dark Reign" status quo well underway at Marvel Comics, the spectre of Norman Osborn's rule falls across the pocket-universe of the X-Men, currently ensconced in San Francisco. With supervillain Simon Trask and his Humanity Now! coalition pushing 'Proposition X' to intrude on mutant reproduction rights, riots break out, and Norman, now the overlord of the Marvel United States, is called in to reestablish control of the streets. This collection covers "Uncanny X-Men" #513-514, "Dark Avengers" #7-8, and the event's prologue and epilogue one-shots ("Utopia" and "Exodus"). All of this is written by regular X-writer Matt Fraction, and drawn by an assortment of artists. Some spoilers follow.

Despite this being labelled as a crossover between the Uncanny X-Men and the Dark Avengers, and even involving the Dark Avengers' own title for two months, the actual Dark Avengers are a fairly minor presence in this story, apart from Norman Osborn. For the bulk of the story, the Dark Avengers sit on the sidelines while Osborn attempts to control the situation by using the "Dark X-Men" as a new public relations tool. The crux of this story is the plight of Emma Frost, who had for the previous six months been a member of Norman's Cabal (as a protective measure), and now has to pick a side as Norman comes into conflict with Cyclops and the X-Men. While the Dark Avengers play a small role until the final fight, Fraction is, per usual, playing with an absolutely giant cast of X-Men. Things often come across as a bit cluttered as a result of this, but many chracters get at least one moment. Dani Moonstar of the New Mutants, who has been making due without superpowers for the last few years, gets a particularly significant development.

16 of 18 people found the following review helpful By Nathan on April 1, 2010
Format: Hardcover
The X-Men story Utopia (nominally a crossover with Dark Avengers, but make no mistake, this is an X-Men story) is problematic both within the larger context of the X-Men books and on its own terms. In the bigger picture, this story was published all of a year after the X-Men relocated their headquarters to San Francisco -- an event that was marketed as a big deal, a major change in the status quo -- so to have another big change in the status quo arrive so quickly is somewhat disappointing. Further, the line-up of X-books as a whole is suffering from "event fatigue": Utopia follows hot on the heels of the X-crossover Messiah War, and is immediately followed by the X-Necrosha event, which itself is immediately succeeded by the "Second Coming" crossover. The Events are coming so quickly that the stories and characters barely have time to breathe, and even when they do it feels like it's just treading water between events. The line seriously needs to calm down and remember that not every story has to be a Major Event.

As for the Utopia story itself, all six issues are penned by Matt Fraction, one of Marvel's bright young stars. Fraction is at his best focusing on fewer characters. Even his earlier team book, The Order, was structured so that each issue focused on a specific team member.

I am thoroughly impressed with the writing and art style in each of these stories. Each comic has its powerful unique feel and story to our whole still keeping the chain of events moving forward!! If you like The X-Men then you will love seeing them at full strength fighting an enemy who is just as powerful.

I'm not an avid comic book reader; however, this comic was a marvelous blend of chaos, love, and insanity with no stops in between. The artwork was eye catching and dark; a great scheme for this story, a definite must read.

I haven't read any x men/scavengers comic books in around three years.After reading this collection of comics telling this story line,I was surprised. I recommend this to any marvel fan. It was a good read with plenty of action. Loved seeing characters I have read about.
