An X-Man Falls In Messiah Complex Chapter 5

Here we go.  Time to start killing some X-Men.  So far I've enjoyed chapters 1 & 2.  Even though not a whole lot of action happened in part 2, it was still good.  It's setting up the stage very nicely.  I liked the way Brubaker is handling the characters.  You can see they are on edge.  It's nice to see some real character traits rather than just have these cardboard cut-out superheroes.   So start placing your bets as to which X-Men will "fall."  Maybe they just trip over something.

It’s the moment you demanded—the X-Men take the battle to Sinister and his Marauders…but will everyone survive? The red-hot, sold-out Messiah Complex continues in X-Men #205, as Chapter Five of this X-Men event brings the X-Men face to face with their enemies on multiple fronts! As the New X-Men continue their battle against a shocking opponent and Cyclops’ strike team seek the new mutant child, could a threat closer to home spell the X-Men’s end? Meanwhile, Layla and Madrox continue their secret mission to uncover the truth about mutant extinction. Acclaimed writer Mike Carey and fan-favorite artist Chris Bachalo bring you the more action than you can shake an adamantium claw at, bub!

Plus, a last page shocker you never saw coming that will shift the balance of power forever as the true whereabouts of the new mutant are revealed!

Critics and fans everywhere continue to praise the first major X-men event in ten years! Comixtreme.Com’s Gabriel Diaz deemed Messiah CompleX “uber-recommended” and added, “I have to tell you that it delivered what was promised.”

As friends become foes and new opponents emerge, not everyone’s walking away from this battle unscathed—and there will be a reckoning! Don’t miss Messiah CompleX Chapter 5, appearing in X-Men #205!
