Review: X-Men #13

X-Men #13Now that the Arkea thing is taken care of the team is trying to ask itself if it wants to be a team.  Why?

The X-Men have always had teams, some members on multiple teams, and it’s always been because either they all work well together, or out of necessity. I honestly can’t remember the last time they all sat around and debated forming a team. It either just happened or was declared without question. So why is Wood making these girls debate it? Either the team works or it doesn’t and they move on. I’m all for mixing it up, doing something different, but here it just falls flat.

And if Cyclop’s team can just walk up to the school, then what the hell, is this a war or not? I’m so confused…

I’m sure all the stupidity with Bond and his being kicked out is either a master plan by Cyclops (the least likely because this would show forward thinking) or a way to turn one of the new mutants into a villain (the most likely as the shear level of stupidity is about right for how much Bendis actually cares).

Everything about the X-Men niche of the comics is annoying right now… especially when it comes to Bendis and Remender…
