‘Get Mystique, Part 2′
Writer: Jason Aaron
Artist: Ron Garney
And the present-day story is a lot of fun, even realizing not to take itself too seriously. As Mystique asks, “God knows it isn’t the first time I ever betrayed your precious X-Men. Why’d you wait ’til now to start taking it personal?”
But the flashback sequences left something to be desired as the crew of misfits just didn’t work for me. Though I must admit, the set up for the next issue has me intrigued.
All in all, another solid issue, just not as solid as last time.
From Marvel (preview): “In the aftermath of ‘Messiah CompleX,’ Wolverine’s quest for vengeance continues, taking him from the desolate hills of Afghanistan to the war-torn streets of Baghdad. Along the way, with his quarry throwing more and more innocents into the line of fire, Wolverine must ask himself: just how much collateral damage can he live with?” On sale March 12, 2008.
