“Messiah CompleX, Chapter 12”
Writer: Christopher Yost & Craig Kyle
Penciler: Humberto Ramos
Inker: Carlos Cuevas with Dave Meikis

I’m an idiot.

For some unknown reason, I assumed that ‘Messiah CompleX’ ran for 12 issues.

It doesn’t. It runs for 13.

So imagine my surprise when I got to the last page and the story didn’t end.

Since I’m not a regular reader of every X-Men comic known to mankind, I must admit I’m a little confused by who everyone is. And while I like Ramos’ style, it doesn’t exactly make my job of identifying characters any easier.

And is there a point of Predator X running through this crossover?

On the Wolverine front, I hope this takes place before Wolverine #61 because Scalphunter puts some serious (and clever) hurt on Wolverine. Ut!

From Marvel: Showdown. The X-Men vs. The Marauders vs. X-Force vs. The Acolytes vs. New X-Men vs. Predator X. Will the victor get the spoils and claim the baby? Whatever the outcome, the future of mutantkind begins here! On sale January 16, 2008.

This is why I like the Ultimate series so much. There aren’t 30 years of back story to follow and the writers are given more creative freedom with the characters. I can usually read ultimate x-men , without being completely lost if I missed a few issues. With the 616 universe , there is too much going on.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
