X-Men: Onslaught Revelation #1 by Simon Spurrier
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
So, apparently Way Of X was a five issue mini series. Who knew? Certainly not me. And this? This is essentially Way Of X #6, serving to do little more than wrap up the story begun in Way Of X. And, while there’s nothing wrong with that, it does feel a little disappointing, and a little rushed. Way Of X was superb, the best new X-book since the new line began, and now it’s over, and everything has been neatly wrapped up. Onslaught is defeated and Krakoa can move on like nothing ever happened.
This is disappointing because it felt like it was setting up what was wrong with Krakoa. It’s long been clear that something is rotten at the heart of Krakoa. Something, for example, is very wrong with Beast. But, I guess, with Inferno starting this week, things need to be wrapped up more quickly. And, well, that’s a shame, because I would much rather have had them take their time to explore this stuff.
Still, what’s done is done, and this is still great. I just wanted more.
