By now it’s been a little over a week since the X-Men’s 50th Anniversary event, Battle of the Atom has ended. While that may be so, the coverage over the last two chapters still need to be covered! And thus, the last field report will be filed and tucked away in a secret government facility where…. Top Men… will keep them safe.
Like the Phoenix I arise from the death with life anew. Unfortunately without an advanced healing factor like Wolverine’s or Sabretooth’s, any pain I go through takes normal time. But that’s not important! What is important is that I bring forth the latest what’s-what on Battle of the Atom with the last three chapters! So no more chit-chat or patty-whacks. Let’s dig right in!
This week we’re back to Bendis again in the writing department as he’s joined by regular X-Men artist, Chris Bachalo. Part 4 of Battle of the Atorm in Uncanny X-Men came out this past Wednesday as the Uncanny team (on Utopia) try to assess the situation with young Scott and Jean. Meanwhile we’re treated to S.H.I.E.L.D. director Maria Hill freaking out and labeling Hank McCoy as the worst person ever. Worse than Magneto? Damn, that’s some award.
X-Men: Battle of the Atom’s third chapter picked up with the three different era X-Men making their plans to chase the runaways of the past, Jean and Scott. While the scenes in the issue are paced well, overall it can feel somewhat quick at times, but not so fast that you feel like it’s running you by. With an event which is taking 10 issues to tell, you want some haste, but not too much as to drag everything down.
Spoilers. Warning. You get the idea. After originally being announced back in April during C2E2, X-Men: Battle of the Atom celebrates 50 wondrous, confusing for some, and glorious years of X-Men stories since their creation by Stan Lee & Jack Kirby in September of 1963. The event, running through four X-Men books with two special book-end issues, tells the tale of past, present, and future X-Men coming together to prevent a screw-up from making life worse for the merry mutants in the future.
I really want to like this movie and hopefully will but after their first go around with X-Men Origins: Wolverine, I’m very apprehensive about getting my hopes up. But, I’ll say this much for The Wolverine, it certainly has all of the right ingredients for a bad ass movie; Samurai, ninja, ninja on motorcycles, a chick with a lizard tongue and Wolverine with an epic beard.
