My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Here’s the main thing: This whole volume is called World War X.

Mutant on Mutant violence. Utopia versus Tian.

What’s cool? Jean Gray is a bigger villain here than Magneto ever was in 616.
Just pure evil looking down on everyone.

Kitty shores up the troops (cue the arrival of Colossus), and realizes she can’t be a pacifist.

Jimmy Hudson betrays someone…or does he? Or he does? Hmm? It costs him…or does it?

Pixie is a hero.
Yes, Pixie.

Iceman and Husk appear on the side of angels.

Jean here written by Brian Wood is a delusional dictator who wants all power and control over the mutant people.

She does horrible things to Utopia in order to defeat them…she REALLY hates Kitty.

Everyone comes together to fight her off (funny enough, there’s not a ton of people who side with Jean…some nobodies…not even a Toad or Pyro to be seen lol.

The other cool part is the reaction of the US Gov’t/human populace to the events.

Kitty goes all out here, for a pacifist, she realizes somethings are bigger than ideals.

The final showdown between Kitty and Jean is pretty awesome. I’m sure it would have been moreso if I’d actually known what happened in vols 2-4…

I think this was the end of this series.
