I know this is a mini-series, but I'm not sure how many issues it's gonna run... I'd guess 6? Anyway, before I even get to this review, I'm going to say to check out X-Man's Comic Forum for various comic related(or even non-comic related) stuff. Reviews, news, video games, movies, TV shows, you name it, it's going on over there. So make sure you keep an eye open for the forum. Without further ado, here's a quick look at the first of... um, a couple of A+X comics!
Summary: Two stories, which pair heroes from the X-Men and Avengers. The first one is from 1943 and has Captain America and Bucky sent on a secret mission to deal with some sort of Nazi robots that were being built by a Atticus Trask... Hmm, Trask, you say? Cap and Bucky head over to Trask's secret base and discover a huge Sentinel. From there. Cable pops out of the timestream and goes after Trask, complaining about Trask trying to ruin the timestream(or something like that). Anyway, Cap and Bucky join the battle on Cable's side and they defeat Trask and his Sentinel. Cable takes Trask back to the future and Cap figures the allies will win the war since Cable was speaking English. Next up, Wolverine and Hulk are ambushed in Avengers Tower by the Maestro and Old Wolverine. The older Hulk and Wolvie bemoan the fact that their target isn't there, and end up getting knocked out of the Tower, at which time they head... You guessed it, back to the future! Wolvie and Hulk are perplexed by that turn of events, and this one ends in the White House where a Red Hulk-looking guy yells at the two older heroes for not having succeeded in killing the Red Hulk.
Thoughts. My first thought here was that this comic was WAAAAY too short to be a $3.99 comic! It went by SO fast! Besides that, the first story was way superior to the second, although neither one is what I'd call a must read. This comic really didn't leave any kind of impact on me actually, because I can't even think of anything else to add!
Score: 7 1/2 out of 10.
Yep, for those of you who can't get enough Sentinels, how about a Nazi Sentinel?!?
