Description

Uncanny X-Men - The New Age - Volume 4: End of Greys (X-Men (Graphic Novels)) (vol. 4). Chris Claremont. Much of the dark doings in the X-Men books these past thirty years go back to that infamous two-issue arc way back in 1980.

Uncanny X-Men - The New Age - Volume 4: End of Greys (X-Men (Graphic Novels)) (vol. Days of Future Past" was only a few issues removed from the tragic "Dark Phoenix" saga, so you can make a pretty solid case for this stretch of stories as writer Chris Claremont cresting to his absolute peak.

Chris Claremont writer. Uncanny X-Men: The New Age - On Ice by djotaku on August 22, 2011. My comic shop recommends that if you're going to read the backstory trades on the X-Men that you should start from Deadly Genesis. I think that both Morrison's and Whedon's runs on the X-Men are great jumping off points for the modern stories. However, I think that anyone catching up on the X-Men should AT LEAST start with Chris Claremon't return in these X-Men: The New Age TPs.

More than a decade after it was first released, the “On Ice” volume of Chris Claremont’s run on “Uncanny X-Men: The New Age” simply doesn’t hold up well. Claremont returns to a number of themes and foes that he explored in the 1980s with far worse results. The art team, especially when led by Alan Davis, does a fine job for the most part in these issues though there are some missteps. Frankly, as other reviewers have noted, Claremont goes to the well way too often and brings out some of his more overused tropes and themes including mind control and--shutter--the X-Babies. There are some nice character moments to be sure but, outside of committed X-Men readers, most readers can skip this collection.

I wasn't too impressed with Chris Claremont's "Uncanny X-Men - The New Age Vol. 3: On Ice". Most of what he wrote in the first 3 volumes of "The New Age:...X-Men" was mediocre and a rehash of a rehash.

The Savage Land has already been stomped over many times by Claremont; however, I am glad that he created a new enemy the Haukka. I also like a few twists that happened, but the twists don't really seem logical or feasible. Knowing the pasts of different characters, I don't see how easily certain individuals could get caught up in a trap with the experiences they have.

For any die hard X-Men fans, I'd say read this book. For the casual reader, other than maybe a new enemy, I don't really see anything coming from this story line.

The XSE goes back to the Savage Land in this TPB. Bizarre things always happen to this team in the Savage Land. This book is no exception.

The beginning of this arc was what threw me, and what made me only give it four out of five stars. Wolverine departs to the Savage Land to investigate some strange findings that an old ex-girlfriend of his (with red hair, go figure) alerted him to. He goes alone (or so he thinks), not realizing that X-23, his teenaged clone, has tagged along as a stowaway on the Blackbird. First, why does Logan insist on going alone? Why was Storm, the leader of the team, okay with it?

Second, why was there no exposition of who Logan's ex-girlfriend was? Granted, she gets killed in the first few pages, but it's nice to have that history.

The Savage Land Mutates make an appearance, as well as a new band of mutated dino-lizards called the Haukka. It's always nice to see some new antagonists for a change. Ka-Zar returns, too, but he didn't have much of a speaking role in this arc.

When the X-Men are taken hostage by the Haukka, they brainwash Marvel Girl into thinking she is one of them. She's so convinced that she begins mutating herself on a molecular level to even physically resemble one of them. THAT was cool. It was neat to see her lope along with the bent posture like the other lizards, further testament to Alan Davis's artwork.

We get to see some interesting interaction between Storm and Marvel Girl in this book, as well as see more of what Storm's powers can really do on a larger scale. Psylocke returns to the X-Men (and from the dead), still looking Japanese, and no longer telepathic, but she's pretty damned cool. If you are a fan of Bishop, you won't see much of him in this story. Logan also inexplicably disappears, by the second issue of this arc, and you never are offered an explanation as to why (even though we know he was kidnapped and brainwashed by HYDRA in his own series, but that doesn't excuse his absence from the Savage Land, hello?).

Marvel Girl's character begs further exploration, both in terms of her powers and how she will grow with the team. This book made me forget all of the previous "Days of Future Past" arcs, thankfully. All of her previous timeline jumps just gave me a headache. Like her mother, Rachel Grey has the greatest capacity for heroism or ultimate destruction.

This is one more story arc that made me very grateful that Chuck Austen is no longer writing this series.

On Ice, the third collected volume in Chris Claremont's return to Uncanny X-Men, finds the legendary X-Men scribe going back to the well. On Ice finds Wolverine taking a trip to the Savage Land to lend a hand, and soon enough he's in over his head against mutated beasties. Storm and the rest of the X-Men soon follow to help out, leading to their capture and Marvel Girl being brainwashed. Oh yeah, X-23 is here too, and Psylocke comes back from the dead only after a few years since Claremont killed her off in the now defunct X-Treme X-Men. While the overall story of On Ice is fun, Claremont's story is so cliche ridden and loaded with plot holes that you'll wonder if Claremont still thinks this is the 80's, and his dialogue alone is proof of that. Alan Davis' artwork though is what makes On Ice worth checking out, as he provides some wonderfully realized pencils throughout this TPB, and there is just something about his rendition of Marvel Girl that is simply luscious. All in all, On Ice is worth a look from X-fans, and yes, you can do far better, but you can also do far, far worse (Chuck Austen anybody?).
