“Unstoppable part 1”.Ã‚Â Finally, everything is really coming together.Ã‚Â All that stuff about Colossus and the Breakworld mentioned way back in the first arc of the series is at long last coming to fruition.Ã‚Â We finally get to see the Breakworld-itself and get an idea of the trouble it’s in.
Basically, the X-Men and their enemies, Ord and Danger, have been “kidnapped” by S.W.O.R.D. (an off-shoot of S.H.I.E.L.D.) and are being taken to the Breakworld.Ã‚Â Colossus is supposedly destined to destroy the Breakworld, and their ruthless military forces are willing to destroy Earth if anything bad happens.Ã‚Â Then everything explodes.
More of Joss Whedon’s snappy dialogue and plenty of Claremont-era nostalgia (only written well this time around).Ã‚Â Astonishing remains the essential X-Men title on the racks.
