Sinister Designs

In this graphic novel a war breaks out. The war that Magneto has been trying to start for 50 years and the X-Men have been trying to avoid comes to pass when the Avengers arrive on Utopia to take Hope Summers into custody. In Namor's words: "This is a species of 200 declaring war on the United States of America".

The opening salvos of this war occur between two titans: Red Hulk and Colossus. The frightening aspects of the Juggernaut power come to the fore as these giants pound each other into bloody pulps on the sea floor. In the mayhem, Hope escapes which sets the stage for a series of Avengers vs X-Men battles at Tabula Rasa: Namor, Sunspot, Hepzibah vs She Hulk, Thing, and Luke Cage. The AvX ends in a cliff hanger as the X-Men and Avengers face off over the Phoenix Force on the moon.

Several sub-plots are also churning in the background. A maniacally evil "peace" robot named Unit is orchestrating events by manipulating Hope, Danger and the mutants from Generation Hope. And Sinister is preparing for the aftermath with an egotistically evil trap for the X-Men.

Marvel has unleashed their big talent for these episodes. Writer Kieron Gillen makes multiple plot threads work together brilliantly. I was hooked from the moment Captain American set foot on Utopia. The battle is insanely lopsided as the combined forces of SHIELD and the Avengers face down a fractured X-Men. These are the kind of desperate odds that make the X-series come alive!

Artist Greg Land creates the high-energy AvX issues #11-12.

I was a little perturbed at how many series got sucked into AVX this year, as events tend to draw the quality of titles down. However, this was not the case for Uncanny X-Men. Gillen chugs along at his usual excellent pace and the issues fit in just perfectly to his previous ~8-9 issues of the series.

Gillen is destroying with this X-Men run. Seriously: if you are not reading this, go pick up the entire new Uncanny X-Men starting at #1 and enjoy.

Just know that, going in, these aren't issues that you can zip through. Invest yourself and immerse your brain in his writing...there's so much going on here that it's best enjoyed by fully grasping the story and plot. Also, Greg Land. Wow....I don't care what ppl say about him, the guy's a genius. Breath-taking art... This series has been blessed with fantastic art - not a single bad artist thus far.

Format: Hardcover
AVENGERS VS. X-MEN is the latest cash-grab "event" comic in the pantheon of bad Marvel event comics, and it's also probably one of the worst yet. Sadly, tie-in issues are a big selling point of the "main event" and since UNCANNY X-MEN is an X-Men comic, it has to tie in to what's going on, and that is mostly where this particular collection is barely readable.

Firstly, we have to deal with the titanic underwater smackdown with Red Hulk vs the Juggernautized Colossus, which is terribly unfortunate that we have to have that silliness in a supporting title, especially since there's already a tie-in comic called AVX, which is supposed to have all of the big solo Avenger vs. solo X-person fights in them. Why waste an issue of this comic with that?

Then we have more adventures in Tabula Rasa and the AI known as Unit. Unit is an interesting character who is a very unknown entity on the board here, but that ends up leading into a place that I think is bad for any book (and this happens a lot in tie-ins) is the requirement to be up on characters that are in a completely separate book, and I didn't know which book these particular characters were from, so it does hurt the flow of the issue. Billy Tan's artwork here is marginally better than Land's.

But after all that is set on its path, we get some exceptional insight into the first villain this book had: Mister Sinister and his Sinister World that is apparently miles below London.
