Review: Uncanny X-Men #498

“Divided We Stand, Part Four”
Writer: Ed Brubaker
Artist: Mike Choi

I shall ignore Cyclops and Emma in psychedelic San Francisco and instead focus on Wolverine, Nightcrawler and Colossus being tortured in Russia.

Much more fun.

Again, Brubaker and Choi deliver the goods. Great fight sequences, fun dialogue and a neat little surprise.

This is the Wolverine I like.

From Marvel (preview): “Cyclops and Emma Frost are trapped in far-out San Francisco – a city that looks and feels likes it’s the summer of ‘69. But there’s nothing groovy about this trip. Unless they can find the source of the strange transformation, Angel may lose his sanity – along with eight million other people. Meanwhile, Wolverine, Colossus and Nightcrawler face a red menace deep in the heart of Mother Russia.” On sale May 28, 2008.

  1. I was happy they referenced Wolverine Origins. Because I was one of the few who remembered that Omega Red was captured by SHIELD. Good issue. ^_~
