Man did I ever save the worst for last! Tonight I'll be taking a look at the two Marvel comics I probably detest the most, and are the front-runners for my least favorite ongoing series of the year, from ANY comic company, Wolverine and the X-Men and Avengers. We'll start the pain with Wolvie and the X-Men...
Wolverine and the X-Men #7:
Summary: So the giant guy who attacked the school grounds last issue is an alien professor named Starblood. He feels that Broo shouldn't be alive since Broo goes against everything the Brood are. Meanwhile, Wolverine and Kid Omega barely escape the casino world... However, Wolverine's ankles seem to have been broken... Somehow... Inside Kitty(yes, really), the X-Men manage to destroy the Brood nest that was in there, while Kitty tries to defend Broo from Starblood. Starblood smacks Kitty out of his way, which leads to Broo going crazy and attacking Starblood like a true Brood would. From there, SWORD arrives and takes Starblood into custody, although he seems smug that he had managed to get Broo to embrace his heritage. Kid Gladiator also gets taken away by SWORD, so they could revert him back to his non-Brood self, since that's apparently so easy to do now. Oh yeah, and Krakoa can grow diamonds on trees, thus solving the school's money troubles and making Wolvie's trip unnecessary.
Thoughts: Yeah, I pretty much hated this comic... Plain and simple. When there are three separate stories and I can't find a good thing to say about ANY of them, that's when I know there's a problem... To be honest, if the Avengers vs X-Men event wasn't beginning next month, I'd drop this series this week. That's how much I hate it. Sorry, but I needed to get that off my chest.
Score: 3 1/2 out of 10.
