First review of this Saturday evening is going to be the forth issue of A+X. Or as JT likes to call it, "Why are you still collecting THAT?!" This issue has Beast and Spidey teaming up(although this takes place before ASM #698, which sucks), and then Cap and the most overexposed of all the X-Men students, Quentin Quire teaming together... Yeah, this does NOT look promising... Prove me wrong, A+X!
Summary: Ugh... So two stories as I said in the intro. Story #1 deals with Beast and Spider-Man getting transported to a future that was being ruled by folks that looked like Beast. As for the humans? They're zombies now, because zombies are cool. The leader of the Beast-people, a woman named Talia, brought Beast and Spidey to her time so she could mate with Beast because... he was the first Beast? And why is Spidey even HERE?! The Beast-people throw Spidey to a giant, rabid Beast-guy, who tries to eat Spidey, while Beast fights off the advances of Talia. He ends up teaming with Spidey(oh-HO! See that, they teamed up, as is the premise of this series!! Nice!!!) and defeating the giant, rabid Beast-guy, which pisses Talia off, so she sends them both home... Huh. Next story was Cap bringing Quentin Quire with him to take out an AIM base because... Well, from what I gathered, Wolverine asked Cap to bring Quire along because Cap wears the flag? Or maybe because Cap's human? I don't know what's happening here... As expected, Quire doesn't want to help Cap, but comes to his aid and helps Cap defeat a bunch of midget MODOKs... Yes, really... Trust me, I couldn't make that up if I tried! So yeah, the two beat back the invasion of the midget MODOKs, who can only say their names, just so you know, and then Quire goes back to the school, possibly understanding Cap better. Or possibly not, I gave up trying to figure all this out a few pages ago.
Thoughts: JT? I get why you dropped this series, mi amigo! This issue sucked! And just to temper it for the people who are all, "Wait, this didn't suck, I loved it!!" I'll change that statement to, this issue sucked, in my opinion! The Beast/Spidey story made little to no sense(Why was Spidey there? Were the Beast-people Beast's offspring? If so, why was Talia trying to sleep with Beast? And of course, why were there zombies?!), and the Cap/Quire story just seemed wrong... Why would Captain America take Quentin Quire to an AIM base!? I mean it's not like they were dealing with a band of muggers, or drug pushers, AIM is dangerous! If he wanted to take Quire out to... show him humans were cool? That Cap was cool? For whatever reason Cap wanted to take Quire with him, why not pick something less dangerous?! This issue made my head hurt...
Score: 1 out of 10.
Yeah, sure. Zombies will make anything better, right??
