Empyre: X-Men (2020) #2 by Gerry Duggan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is a huuuuge improvement over the first issue, which I did enjoy, but this is so much fun. I think the prologue with Wanda definitely dragged the first issue down, and this issue isn’t burdened with that and gets to just be a crazy romp with Angel singing Neil Diamond to Hordeculture and Magik showing off.
And talking of Magik…Werneck sure draws a good Magik. And it’s nice to see the Darkchylde back again. More Magik, please. Can we have some more Magik stories? There should definitely be more Magik.
M and Madrox don’t get to do a whole lot, but hopefully they’ll get a chance to shine before this story ends. Jamie, in particular, is just kinda’…there.
But, yeah, this is good.
