The Return of the Blob
March 8, 2013 | Drew | (No Comments)
X-Men #7 offered us a bit of everything, from character development, so story development as our hero’s move along the course of their early adventures. In this tale The original X-men Graduate, and all in only seven issues. But now, they are left alone – as Professor X leaves them for tasks unknown – to protect the world under the leadership of Cyclops. If you think things can’t get any tougher for the young mutants, this issue features the Blob as a new member of the Evil Mutants.
Can the X-men Stop Magneto, Toad, Mastermind, Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, and the Blob, all without the help of their beloved Professor Xavier? Will the blob remain loyal to the brother hood of Evil Mutants? these questions and more are addressed in X-Men #7, but the issue also does a wonderful job leaving us to wonder: What business called Professor Xavier away? That will just have to be saved for a future story… (more…)
Sub-Mariner! Joins The Evil Mutants
September 19, 2012 | Drew | (No Comments)
This comic book review is of the story titled “Sub-Mariner! Joins The Evil Mutants” from X-Men #6 with a cover date of in July 1964. While the X-Men have been seen in other titles, this is the first guest star from the marvel universe at large to appear in the X-Men’s own title, as we witness Namor joining the evil mutants.
the question one has to ask in reading this story is if it is well thought out with the existing continuity for Namor, or just a silver age comics ploy to sell people upon a young title? In this case, (even if it was a ploy) the story and continuity where clearly in the minds of Stan lee and Jack Kirby, as you will see below. (more…)
Trapped: One X-Man!
May 11, 2012 | Drew | (No Comments)
This comic book tale is of the story titled “Trapped: One X-Man!” the feature of X-men #5 from 1964. In this tale we have the second encounter between our hero’s and Magneto’s evil mutants, and to top it off, after the events of last issue left Professor Xavier powerless the X-men must deal with this alone. To make matters worse, Magneto and his evil mutants manage to capture The Angel, and the X-men must rescue him from Asteroid M.
Is this the making of a good tale? and will this have ongoing repercussions? Or will this story fail to live up to all our hopes for it. Continue on to see what I think in my review of X-men#5. (more…)
The Brotherhood Of Evil Mutants!
April 5, 2012 | Drew | (No Comments)
We have heard them mentioned and hinted at all along now; the Evil Mutants. Just like they are some kind of mysterious and yet unseen threat as a group, but in this issue, right from the cover, we are promised them, with the words “At Last!! The X-Men come face-to-face with “The Brotherhood of Evil Mutants””. THen to top it off, right at the center of the 5 evil mutants on the cover is one we have seen before, Magneto from X-Men #1.
But is this threat, bout to be everything that has been hinted at? or will this issue fall short of all our hopes for the Evil Mutants, read on to see what I think. (more…)

For today’s comic book review I did X-Men #1 from 1963. this volume of comics would eventually be retitled to Uncanny X-men. in any case, i thought it a great idea to review X-men #1 for X-mas eve.
I feel it worth saying that the X-men comic came to be the same month as the avengers, but the x-man much like the Fantastic Four and even the hulk, got trusted with their own feature comic right off the bat, unlike so many of the other early marvel hero’s I am reviewing.
