Uncanny X-Men #1 Review! (My 350th Review!)
April 7th, 2019
This review contains spoilers. Proceed at your own risk.

I've gotta admit that  I found this issue pretty disappointing; I was expecting to like it more. I thought both the story and art were both kinda weak here. Normally I really like Asrar's art but didn't find this was his strongest work. I also found mysel struggling to really care about the second story; so this review will probably focus on the first story. The second story included three chapters and an epilogue; and my favourite part was probably the Jean Grey part and the repercussions in the epilogue.

The reason this issue even gets three stars is because I think the first/main story did have a lot of promise and I liked it overall enough and the aspects of mystery in the story. We see across the issue that all these copies of Multiple Man try to warn and help save people, but it turns out to be to no avail. Jamie tries to find Kitty Pryde but appears to be too late after she disappears while on a mission with some students. 

Speaking of this mission, the X-Men are trying to stop a group of villains; but the villains try to explain that the people inside the building thay are at are creating a vaccine to give kids so they don't become mutants. A debate on the vaccine takes place at City Hall later on. When Jean Grey goes to speak in Kitty's place for the X-Men Multiple Jamie's appear again to try and take Senator Allen with them (who is for the vaccine.) Jamie says he was too late yet again after the Senator disappears.

We go to the location of wherever Kitty Pryde and Senator  Allen have been teleported off to. The issue ends with the Reveal that whoever/whatever force has captured them has also captured the all-mighty Apocalypse.

Intrigued to see where this story goes!
