Uncanny X-Men: Superior, Volume 4: IvX Reviews

    This collects the Inhumans Vs. X-Men crossover issues, which focus on two of the team at a time. It was OK, but felt a bit like wheel-spinning while we wait for the crossover to end...

    Some generic one-offs somewhat related to Inhumans vs. X-Men book. Most of this book just feels like filler while we wait for the book to end. The idea behind the team was good, a team of X-Men who'd do whatever it took to save mutants. But the execution was lacking and half of the 4 volumes published were crossover issues. Hopefully X-Men Blue and gold will have more consistent storytelling.

    [Read as single issues]My review for all three of the X-Men tie-in volumes to IvX will be exactly the same. These are one-shot stories that tie into the events of IvX, and they're not particularly compelling on their own. There's an attempt to try and tie-up the rest of the storylines that the writers have laid down, but their hands are tied in terms of how much they can do.Certain issues are worth looking into, like the Romeo/Iceman issue in All-New X-Men, or the Monet focused issue of Uncanny X-Men, but I honestly am having trouble remembering what was going on in most of these books at this point. This era of the X-Men can really be summed up like that - not particularly memorable, but with some good ideas hidden in the depths that aren't allowed to breathe due to excessive events every few months.Yawn. Read the Inhumans tie-ins instead, they're much better.

    Never really got the concept of this one. The team is pretty cool, dark and interesting and the art's been the best of the three X-Books but they were never given a great story for them to participate in...

    It's ok, but it relies too much on having a clue what's happening in the main IvX title, and I don't. The one issue that's rather decently written is the one focusing on Monet and Sabertooth, even though I'm not a fan of the direction Bunn has taken her character. It did seem odd to me that the annual, obviously set before any of the regular issues in this volume, was the last one in the book.

    Bunn's UXM ends with IVX crossovers, and they're generally OK. They're each one-offs, taking place between the moments of IVX, and they offer nice character insights amidst the huge crossover. There's a Sabretooth and Monet issue that's particularly strong, and the others are good except their context is somewhat muddled because they're so deeply embedded in IvX.We also get a final match-up between Betsy and Magneto and an Annual that walks back the worst error that Bunn made in his IvX run.Overall I gave this 3.5 stars making it one of Bunn's stronger UXM volumes (alongside v3, right before it). Sadly, he never achieved greatness at any point in his run, so I'm looking forward to the next teams.

    This last volume of the series highlights the one thing about Marvel/DC that pisses me off, and that is, in the collected volumes like this, there are huge gaping plot holes from where the series crosses over with another one, and nothing is ever explained to the reader who might not have read those issues, or even what issues they were! Last book, Psylock left Magneto and his X-men, this issue, apparently there was a war between mutants and inhumans that the inhumans lost, the sleepers were turned into weapons after all, and Magneto did something that made Psylock try to kill him and weird shit happened with Monet and Sabertooth who are somehow in Limbo now. What the hell did I miss and where the hell can I find it?

    Little character snippets to end the series, just like the IvX tie-ins of Extraordinary X-Men and All-New X-men: Inevitable, except for the first issue, which provided a further look at Jean and Fantomex attempting to keep that Inhuman guy whose name I can't remember busy. The M/Sabretooth issue was pretty good, it went for character and tragedy and just about worked. The Psylocke/Magneto issue was also pretty good, with an ending that initially surprised me, before more typical--and less gutsy--comics shenanigans made it cliched. The annual at the end may have been the best story of them all, dealing as it did with the soft-spots within this team of killers.

    2,5*Bunn concludes the series the same way he did with previous volumes, tediously and without a trace of genius. The first tie-in with Fantomex is directly linked with the main event, while the following 2 are looser and more character centered (Monet/Sabretooth-not bad and Xorn-meh ).Psylocke's confrontation with Magneto in the finale feels overplayed and brutal. This was really a team of psycopaths!The annual is correct if dispensable. The reason of the presence of Domino in the 2nd story kinda eludes me though.

    Worthless bunch of open ended single issue, each dedicated to a member or two of the book team. All of these stories happens while the x-men are fighting in the unwanted IvX event, has zero effect on the main event, and screams "'we didn't have enough time to finish the story we wanted to tell"A mediocre ending to a mediocre series

    2.5 StarsHow far the mighty have fallen! Uncanny X-Men used to be one of the greatest comics ever, but with this run on Superior... 'eh... it's only been ok.A collection of various levels of infighting between X-Men and occasionally Inhumans. Sabretooth vs. Monet; Jean and the Cuckoos against Karnak; Psylocke vs. Magneto; the return of Xorn, etc.The Volume isn't essential, and its connection to IvX is slightly sketchy. I'm kind of glad the 3 X-titles are being condensed to two: Gold and Blue. Recommend only if you feel you absolutely must read every piece of the IvX storyline.

    I read this volume along side the entire Inhuman vs XMen books/story arc. There is one issue that focuses on Fantomax. I don’t really get what the gist of it was so I give it an incomplete review. Notable issues include Sabertooth and his efforts to protect Monet. The ending issue with Psylocke vs Magneto is definitely interesting and worth reading. Do yourself a favor and make sure you read the larger story and not just this volume by itself.

    Mostly boring, forgettable and confused. But ends with a small Domino story which was a bit of a relief. The writers of X-Men tend to forget that you have to make sure your reader cares about your characters. And it's not just the characters, though some of them are awful. Because in the hands of a good author with a good story idea, almost any character is a good character. Not a bad issue, just not a good one.

    good last issue with magneto and psylocke, but thats about it. Crossovers are never good for people following a certain story thread

    This was just a mash up of major plot events without explanation. I have absolute hatred for people who do this.

    The many endings of character arcs were well handled. Giving each character a focused issue helped. And Elixir's return was great.

    I like seeing the different sides between Inhumans and XMen. WIll continue to read.

    This was definitely going to get a one star, but Anthony Piper's super fun Domino story in the annual fully deserved an additional star. It was the only part I enjoyed though.

    Side stories from IvX and moving forward to the new X-Men reset...I think. But nothing key to IvX.
