      The new X Men team continues to promote the mutant cause by astonishing the world with their super heroics Things go pretty well when they help drive a giant monster out of Manhattan with a little help from the Fantastic Four, but there s problems back at the school with the revelation of a cure for the mutant gene causing tension The exposure of an old secret also turns out to be the birth of their latest enemy, and this is a threat unlike anything the X Men have faced before.This is a strong c [...]

      WrensReads Review This was meWhen the Fantastic FourMade a cross over appearance in this comic I was beside myself Like for goodness sakes, all I needed was for Logan Wolverine to make a move or was I the only one that felt that connection with Miss Invisible.Really, this comic was amazing.I love the idea of something that trains you to be your best while protecting you from yourself turning against you Like how are you suppose to fight something that has watch, studied, and contacted against al [...]

      No ten a muchas esperanzas puestas en este tomo, pero me ha sorprendido y mucho La trama en general ha sido interesante, presentando situaciones guays y descubriendo traiciones e historias del pasado para aderezarlo Personajes como Emma se hacen m s y m s interesantes, hay tiempo para el amor y para unos cuantos giros muy buenos Me ha entretenido y lo mejor de todo, me ha enganchado Vol en mis manos, deseoso de saber qu ocurr a Muy buena mejora respecto a la primera entrega.

      Joss Whedon takes the Star Trek cliche the holodeck malfunctions and comes alive and, well, doesn t do much with it other than give it breasts.

    5. Sesana on said:

      I know Joss Whedon has his own projects But couldn t he have just kept writing X Men forever He gets the characters, he can set up an interesting plotline, he can write good, even funny dialog He can even take the Colossus Shadowcat relationship, which I ve never, ever liked, and make me actually kinda like them together I can t say that I m entirely thrilled with Danger a little too late TNG for my taste , but other than that, fantastic And good art with personality

      TALK ABOUT ONE UPPING YOUR PREDECESSOR First, I must comment on HOW FUCKING FUNNY THIS VOLUME WAS Colossus was thinking about the fight, and Kitty was thinking about the fight, and Logan is thinking how much he loves beer I was tickled beyond belief reading this Half of me says it s because Joss is a fucking funny man The other half of me tells me that it s just because the X Men HAVE to joke They re in such dire situations, comics and movies alike, and they have to keep their humanity somehow B [...]

      It was not my cup of tea After having really enjoyed the Volume 1, I had high expectations from Volume 2 For a while it felt that the story is going to be mind blowing The part till the tragic death occurs in the institute, had me by the edge of my seat and then, I fell Sadly, I fell into a deep abyss of confusion and disappointment The powerful enemy in this issue is the danger room, taking a physical form which just didn t go oh so well with me Meh Hope the next volume brings something good.

      Review is also on Rabbit Ears Book Blog Flashback After reading the first volume, Astonishing X Men Gifted, I just could not wait to read the second volume in this fantastic series, Astonishing X Men Dangerous Joss Whedon and John Cassaday has once again woven a truly interesting story that is way intense than the first and is full of shocking surprises that will leave every X Men fan shocked for the rest of their lives What is the story After the events of the first volume Astonishing X Men Gi [...]

      The Danger Room is the X Men s highly advanced holographic training facility, augmented with alien technology It s so advanced that it becomes sentient and lures a student to his death The Danger Room or just Danger maneuvers the X Men and their students into a corner as it begins taking even further revenge on the team.In a plot echoing the creation of Ultron, Charles Xavier inadvertently births a new artificial life form that emerges to attack the X Men from the inside I thought this arc was a [...]

      This get s five stars because somehow it stirred so much emotions in me that even now, the third time I read it, I had close to tears all the way through X men is one of my weak spots and it s hard to comprehend everything that s going on inside me unless you ve lived in my brain for a couple of years I cry at special scenes in movies that most people think makes no sense It s not emotional even sometimes, I don t move a muscle to The Notebook I cry because of the beauty, from how epic some scen [...]

    11. Justin on said:

      More hilarious snark More fantastic artwork The second volume of Whedon and Cassaday s run on Astonishing X Men is as good as the first in terms of story, characterization, and artwork, though it is perhaps not quite as accessible to new X Men readers as the first volume Thankfully, I ve got enough background knowledge on the X universe that it didn t slow me down at all.This volume breaks away from the story arc established in the first Ord, the Breakworld, S.W.O.R.D and the ominous prophecy of [...]

      Unexpectedly tangential to the huge Mutation Cure Alien Attacks SWORD Secret Research Lab Plot arc of the previous volume.

    13. Liana on said:

      This was even better than its predecessor The action sequences were epic, the artwork very appealing to my personal taste and the characters were once again on point The overall plot was phenomenal, a unique piece of art It makes me wonder how the same man that gave me this also gave me the mess that was theAge of Ultronmovie One thing I particularly enjoyed was how we got to see that Charles is in no way perfect, how his decisions may sometimes not line up with what he preaches, how he may even [...]

      The Danger Room is angry Emma Frost Is it ever Our favorite mutants are put through their paces in this collection, pleasantly continuing in the same quality as Volume 1 but with even action, twists and soap operatic developments Again, I could embarrassingly gush all afternoon about Kitty Pryde, but when the team is in a real pickle and she calmly with a Kubrick style glare asks the bad guy That all you got bub , I felt like cheering.

      I watched the motion comic on Netflix not too long before I read this, and it was like d j vu for me That is to say, the motion comic suits this series very well As with the first volume, Whedon s unique voice comes out in his writing Emma Frost s bitingly sarcastic comments are very suited to Whedon s similar style of humor The artwork of John Cassady is perfectly paired to Whedon s prose.Funny enough, the members of this team of the X Men aren t ones I d think of as my favorites, with the exce [...]

    16. Sam Quixote on said:

      If you ever watched episodes of Star Trek, be it The Next Generation or Voyager, you ll know there were episodes, maybe one a season, where the holodeck would malfunction and the holograms would become real Joss Whedon takes that storyline and applies it to the X Men, bringing the Danger Room their version of the holodeck to life, causing chaos and havoc Granted it s not the holograms but the room itself, stillThe new shadow organisation SWORD is still in the background and seems likely to play [...]

    17. David Schaafsma on said:

      Why read this, when you think you just want to see the movies Joss Whedon his wit, his dialogue, his humor, on injecting horror into a sci fi series, his serious reflections on AI, on fear, on human weakness, on our desire to control the universe in order to control our fears On the surface, this looks to me like a pretty standard sorta superhero comic book scratch a little deeper, and it s unique and thoughtful, for general and superhero readers alike And even for X Men geeks and I m not one, r [...]

      This was my second read of this first was in a combined book with Vol 1 Strong work by Whedon here, keeping pace brilliantly, and introducing Danger, a villain that makes sense in so many ways I m amazed no one thought of it first Having Colossus back is enjoyable, he s never been in many of the X books I ve read, so it s kind of fresh The appearance of Prof X is important, as is the reaction Cyclops has to him when things are said and done The strong characterization of all the players is impre [...]

    19. 47Time on said:

      This arc is saved only by the dialogue and the artwork The themes are old and several characters are brought back, some of which should have stayed forgotten.Starting off on the ridiculous foot X Men and Fantastic Four fighting a giant lizard Thank God the dialogue is funny, though It s just that this theme should stay in the 70 s where it belongs Meanwhile, on a much serious note, the student who had his powers removed by Ord s serum, a mutant with the ability to fly, kills himself while in th [...]

      Just to be up front about it the central concept of this volume is out there, even for a comic book The central antagonist here is so absurd that I honestly couldn t believe it when they were revealed.That being said, aside from that central issue, this is actually a pretty good story There s lots of action, which plays out well, making use of the advantages and challenges of the primary X men There s some ancillary mystery that is intriguing but not resolved And the art is strong, especially th [...]

      A veces aunque una historia no es la m s original del mundo, la forma en la que esta contada, hace que se distinga del resto, y este tomo es un perfecto ejemplo de esto Whedon nos entrega una historia muy entretenida, con humor y buen ritmo El arte acompa a con claridad y excelentes escenas de acci n.

      The X Men team of Joss Whedon is still not comfortable with each other in the second volume They tolerate each other but barely so and yet as the story opens they are on their way to battle a giant monster out in the open in the city The team gels together much as they face the next challenge which stems right from with the Xavier s school The most devastating blows anyone will ever take will come from within the fold of their own families and this is what happens to the X Men when their danger [...]

      This trade collects issues 7 12 of Joss Whedon s run on Astonishing X men.Dangerous directly continues events started in Volume 1 Gifted It will be hard to follow and will loose a lot of impact if you don t read that first.Vol 2 of Joss Whedon s X men story expands see the team dealing with some of the indirect fallout of Ord s actions in the first trade This gives an enemy the X men have faced countless times a chance to meet them face to face at last As the second act of our four act tale, whi [...]

    25. V.M. Sawh on said:

      Solid action, great, expressive art and strong characterization make this volume worth getting and keeping Some of the standout characters include Cyclops, Kitty Pryde, Colossus and Emma Frost I loved that Wolverine is shown to be the irascible meatbag he is The humour was or less on point, but even as a die hard Whedonite, I do see where his style has become almost cliche, in a way thanks to Marvel s Quip a thon in their movies Whedon did it first, but sometimes does it too often, which can we [...]

      In this X Men story we learn that the Danger Room is a sentient being that hates the X Men Turns out Professor X has know this all along him being a psychic and all , so the whole time they are training it is just the Professor putting them in a living room that wants to kill them The X men battle the room, and destroy it and all the busted peices of the room form a robot that continues to fight the X Men across the globe The battle concludes in Genosia where Professor X is chillin with Magneto, [...]

      This was fun, easy read, and hilarious I especially love Wolveine I wish they d put out a series starting this light hearted, costumed version of him Don t get me wrong, the Wolverine series with Old Man Logan was good, but a bit too dark Screw that, a LOT too dark Wolverine s comments are hilarious Wait Forgive me This is a review of Astonishing Xmen, not Wolverine.So, anyways, the story was so so Nothing wow But I especially liked the parts that left you hanging Like that part when Danger told [...]
