Review Wolverine and the X-Men Alpha & Omega 2

So lets take a look at this extremely long named second part of this limited series.

Personally, I wasn’t really impressed with the first issue.  Quentin Quire forcing Logan and Hisako into a world he made up only really showed me what little I already knew about his character: that he’s full of himself and an ass.  To waste five issues on such a thing sort of confused me even for there seemed no real point behind this limited series.  Well, the second issue here seems to have proven me wrong.

Yeah, Quire is still an ass and besides to show the details, seeing inside this world he’s “trapped” Wolverine and Armor in doesn’t seem to have much point still.  What really got me with this issue though is seeing Quire running around the school.  Working to maintain the details in this world so it remains believable, of which he slightly fails.  The one relevant point to seeing inside the world is seeing Quire’s two captives realizing they have no idea about their powers, or that matter any real details about this “job” or even their past.  In the real world, Quire is shown as an actual human being, not just a teenager who is full of himself and thinks everyone is beneath him.  We see him seemingly try to gain the attention of his female peers, and for that matter just try to gain attention from anyone.  Despite how he tends to act, he really just wants some recognition for what he is capable of.

This limited series is not the greatest I’ve read, but its good and ends on a nice cliff hanger.

About xxadverbxx

I'm a fan of comics. I use to love DC, but events pretty much starting with the New 52 had pushed me off of them for years. Lately though titles like Gotham Academy and We Are Robin have brought me back to them. I'm much more still a Marvel fan though at this moment who I moved to since New 52 slowly kept pushing me away from DC. Often a fan of X-Men titles while I've really been loving Spider-Gwen series. Film wise I'm upset at DC though I really really want them to do good. At least their TV series are mostly enjoyable (though Arrow has dipped in quality), while I'm a huge fan of the Marvel films. Also, I still really hate Dan Didio and still view him as at least most of what has been going wrong with DC comic wise lately.
