X-Men Gold #4

by Ryan.L on May 17, 2017

Writer: Marc Guggenheim
Artist: R.B. Silva
Publisher: Marvel Comics

The X-Men are adjusting to life in Central Park as well as dealing with the new Brotherhood of Evil Mutants.

This issue we get a special appearance by Gambit who is on a heist that goes off without a hitch, but the hand off takes a turn for the unexpected. 

We have a new artist and I really like R.B. Silva's art on this series. There are moments where some of the faces look a little odd but the layout and style that Silva brings to the series feels a lot more like a classic X-Book.

It was really fun to see Gambit make an appearance and do his thing. I love the jokes he makes and the action sequences are a blast. One of the standout characters for me in this series is Prestige. I have always really enjoyed Rachael but now we really get to see her in action and she is a force to be reckoned with.

Olivia Trask seemed a little under used for how dangerous a family she is apart of. I do wonder if we will see her more, but the last story arc the big bad politician they were setting up was nowhere to be found in this issue. It is possible these early issues Marc Guggenheim is just setting the groundwork for all those out there that hate the mutants but it would be nice to see them become more of a threat than what they are now.

This issue was again another solid book and proves that this series can survive any of the controversy that plagues it. The dynamics between the characters is so on point and really helps drive some great character driven stories. If you haven't picked this series up yet, what are you waiting for?
