Uncanny X-Men #3:
What Happened: The Brotherhood battle against the army of Sinister clones, but have little luck defeating the Sinisters since they just keep coming. Danger arrives on the scene to lend a hand, but even she can't tip the battle back in favor of the Brotherhood, as the Sinisters just keep on respawning. Eventually Emma Frost realizes that Sinister had based much of his mind on Lord Summers, and since she knew the mind of Lord Summers better than anybody, she manages to shut down Sinister and his army, but not before forcing Sinister to send the Dreaming Celestial's head back to it's body. Defeated, the Sinisters melt away, at which time ANOTHER Sinister strolls out of the museum Sinister had taken over. Sinister tells the team that he had learned from the past mistakes of the Sinister who had just lost, and as such ridded himself of his over-reliance on Lord Summers brain patterns. Sinister tells the Brotherhood that he'd be back someday before teleporting the museum away and shooting himself in the head. With Sinister gone(for now), Lord Summers and the Brotherhood head out to the Golden Gate Park just in time to watch the Celestials touch down to see who had tampered with the Dreaming Celestial. Lord Summers decides to tell the Celestials that the Earth was under his protection(REALLY??!?!?!?), at which time the Dreaming Celestial gives the rest of the Celestials the sign to leave since it was no longer in any jeopardy. The Brotherhood seems to think that THEY chased off the Celestials(for real?!) and the Brotherhood seem pleased by this turn of events.
The Good: Um... I guess Sinister will be back again sometime down the road. Granted, he's still bizarro Sinister, but maybe by the time he returns he'll be more like his normal self... That's all I've got...
The Bad: The Lord Summers/Celestials scene was one of the most cringe-inducing, horrible things I've read in some time... Has Lord Summers become so delusional that he thought he could take THE CELESTIALS?!? The Celestials are a cosmic force, Lord Summers is a deluded madman... If the Brotherhood were to fight the Celestials it would be akin to a platoon of tanks battling a pack of dogs... Our Lord and Savior Hope was in this comic. The Brotherhood won.
The Verdict: If you're a fan of this version of the X-Men, then I KNOW you liked this issue way more than I did. However, if you're like me and despise this version of the
Score: 4 out of 10.So speaketh Our Lord and Savior Hope!!!
