A Quick Look at Dark X-Men #3(of 3)

Writers: Paul Cornell, Jason Aaron, Simon Spurrier. Artists: Leonard Kirk, Jock, Paul Davidson.

What Happened: For the record, this issue was split into three separate stories. The first one was about Namor and Emma Frost. We discover that apparently the only reason Namor joined the Dark X-Men was because he wants Emma. The second story detailed Norman(Marvel)Osborn convincing Mystique to join the Dark X-Men by telling her Wolverine has a son. The third story details Norman's attempts at getting Aurora onto the Dark X-Men. Unfortunately for Norman, Aurora manages to to defeat him and his HAMMER cronies and decides she won't be joining the Dark X-Men.

What I Thought: I really enjoyed the Mystique story(then again, I've always been a huge Mystique fan), the Namor story was pretty good and the Auaroa story was readable. All in all, this issue was better then I expected it to be.

Score: 7 1/2 out of 10.You know, I've never once mistook Mystique for Wolverine.


  1. Yeah this was pretty good, especially the mystique story, the art was fantastic.

  2. Yeah Matt, the art and story in the Mystique story really stood out in this issue. I was definitely pleasantly surprise with this comic.
