It's time for me to check out the newest issue of Wolverine's personality devoid clone's solo series! Yes, it's time for an X-23 review! Here's hoping this issue is a bit better than the past few issues have been...
Summary: The FF have taken X-23 to their headquarters to see if they could figure out the meaning behind the dreams she shared with Spider-Man and Invisible Woman, two members of the FF. Oh, and Mr. Fantastic is also trying to puzzle out why an earthquake hit on the same block in Manhattan that X-23 was on. While Mr. Fantastic wants to run some further tests on X-23 to see what he could come up with, X-23 isn't interested in sticking around since the Baxter Building, with all of it's labs and stuff, probably reminds her of her time with the Facility. Invisible Woman figures taking X-23 around the kids at the Baxter Building may help put her mind at ease, but when she does another earthquake strikes, this time IN the building. X-23 wakes up a little while later and finds Invisible Woman, Spider-Man, Mr. Fantastic and Valeria Richards hanging out around her hospital bed. Mr. Fantastic reveals that the earthquakes were somehow coming from X-23, while Valeria uses a device that shows that Spidey and Invisible Woman were also carrying the same energy. Upon hearing that, Spidey realizes it was the Uni-Power, which he, Invisible Woman and X-23 all held at one time. Valeria uses her device to activate the residual Uni-Power inside the three and the thee heroes find themselves transported to some weird alternate dimension.
Thoughts: Well, I think it's finally time for me to just come right out and say it... This is almost definitely the last issue of this series I'll be picking up. I honestly haven't enjoyed an issue of this series since the very first storyline. I don't know what it is, but the past few issues of this series have left me flat. Plus the addition of the FF to this storyline is just killing it for me. Sorry, but without the Human Torch, the FFers are just uber-bland and boring to me. Add X-23, who herself is bland and boring, throw in a story that makes little to no sense and you have a recipe for disaster. So yes, this is my final X-23 review for the foreseeable future. If I hear that the series has really picked up down the road, I'll add it again, but until then I'm sure I can find something else to waste my money on.
Score: 3 1/2 out of 10.Even X-23's threats are boring!
