This is it. Cyclops vs Cyclops!
After a bit of a side step with the 3rd issue, Bendis quickly regains his senses and gives the culture clash we’ve been waiting for. The initial shock of the original X-Men as they see what Cyclops was is one of the great comic book moments. You could feel some of the innocence being lost as these characters get a glimpse of their future counterparts in action. So many new and interesting plot points have emerged with this issue and it’s guaranteeing some great stories in the future. We also have a fantastic monologue with Cyclops as he tries to break down why his past self is here; his inner monologue shows that there is still quite a bit of dark tendencies left in him, something that Magneto tells him as well. Bendis does a great job of adding humor and at the same time presenting us with deeply rooted characters, this is some of his best work.
Everything here was fantastic.
This is definitely a series that every X-fan should be buying; it has everything you could possibly want as a fan. It’s almost like they could split this up into two different books…sigh
5 out of 5!
