The 90s were a rough time to like comics, but luckily we didn t know any better at the time In retrospect, yikes this is rough.
Boom Onslaught is here and it feels like the Marvel Universe cannot stop him despite the team up of 4 X Men teams, Cable, X Man, the Fantastic Four and their allies, the Avengers And the Hulk Friend or foe Not the greatest Marvel event but one of the most important of the 1990s bringing most of the Marvel mainstream characters together.Covering X Men 53 54, Uncanny X Men 334 335, Avengers 400 401, Onslaught X Men, X Man 18, X Force 57, Cable 34 and Incredible Hulk 444.
This is an event that gets judged for it s effects than itself Just reading this story alone is at least entertaining Potentially confusing considering the massive amount of titles and characters that crossover on it But honestly it does what a crossover event needs Then unfortunately they decided to turn the event into a gimmick to restart a bunch of their classic characters that needed new life And things went downhill from there But that is the effects on things outside this story itself Ju [...]
Since I ve gotten into reading Super Hero comics I ve mostly started from the beginning and only occasionally jumped ahead But when I have done so the new stuff I ve read has been very current, after 2000 current So this book was probably the first book I ve read that s really heavy in the 90 s feel.Almost immediately I saw why that decade of comics has a bit of a bad rep Although the art in this comic was fairly good there were aspects of it that were painful to look at Every muscular man is dr [...]
I absolutely adored this decade of x men comics growing up Sadly, this collection doesn t begin to hold up to the excitement of my youth Far from being complete it begins with a very cursory summary of the storyline, which had been building up since the appearance of Bishop in UXM 283, so unless you already have a good handle on how the how thing unfolded you are lost from the beginning On top of that several issues are reprinted as one page excerpts of relevant text rather than full issues In s [...]
Going over all these books that I wanted to but could not afford when they were published has been quite the disapointment to me But, after reading like 75 issues of Onslaught, I ve come to like the corny dialog I will destroy you with my mighty X strike Your powers are no match for my might , now clich cliffhangers and the art of spanning the storyline to 20 different titles It s been kind of a nostalgic run Maybe if I had read it when it was published and before I had read thousands of titles, [...]
The primary writer behind the opening of this story will go on to help give us Heroes and Lost I think this is a good indicator of what this feels like so far The story is too big It wants to be TOO epic It has too many plot threads and doesn t seem to know where it s going It s confusing Does it substitute this sort of confusion as suspense I keep reading, wondering where this is all going, much the way people watched Lost and Heroes.
I m only reading this because Warren Ellis was listed as one of the writers minimally, and only in Volume 2 but I m starting to feel like it s a waste of time Nothing but deception, chase sequences, and trash talking, all in the most clich ways I m seeing and why so many readers of comics presumably the ones who like to actually learn from them lost interest in Marvel in the 90s.
I really did not want to write a review for this one It saddens me to say that I simply could not get through this book There was a lot of effort put into reading this but I had to put it down By the time I got to the point where the Avengers got mixed in I was just really not interested in what was going on.
Now that this event is finally underway, it s actually kind of fun, in a silly blockbuster sort of way.
No scenes, just characters expositing in the speech bubbles, and spelling out subtext in the thought bubbles Waid s come a long, long way.
Loving the story arc.
The golden age of comic art love love love
X Men Onslaught Saga part 1One has to read this book head on with no interruptionsNow for part 2Wish me luck
This begins the extensive storyline that had its roots in years of previous X Men comics and explodes onto the scene after months of hints that were especially prevalent after the Age of Apocalypse ended in mid 1995 A lot of this is set up that leads into the ultimate battle, but it s all necessary to figuring out how Onslaught was formed as a being that s a combination of the darkest portions of Charles Xavier s psyche and Magneto s rage, which was unleashed when Professor X wiped his old frien [...]
I LOVE COMICS, here we go again with awesome crossover mayhem when Charles Xavier yes Professor X himself goes bad guy and turns on the Marvel World No hero is safe as Onslaught kicks much butt and some of the most powerful heroes in the world are struggling to deal with him I love crossovers most of all because there is so much story telling in it that it s like your reading a regular book, but with the added bonus of cool art work to aid in the bigger than life story Wish i had money so i co [...]
This review will be for all four volumes being that i read the individual issues and don t really know where each vol ends Onslaught is Professor X going bad guy He employs some of the baddest bad guys to help with his evil deed But the who time it s not Prof X It was something that built inside him over like 10 or issues before the whole crossover starts Well all hell is breaking loose and Prof X along with Franklin Richards are locked away inside Onslaught Of course they get free and the hero [...]
The 90s comics nostalgia train rolls onOkay Jordan, you may hate me for this one, but I re read the opening salvo of this saga after reading it for the first time over 10 years ago and parts of it still stuck with me as being creepy The build up to who what Onslaught is remains suspenseful I m still a sucker for Madureira s the Kuberts art Does that mean I m officially a 90 s reject That being said, I could do without all the ancillary titles that Marvel shoehorned into this crossover, which of [...]
Por alguna raz n en su momento estaba fascinado con esta saga y me compraba casi todo lo que ten a un Onlaught en la tapa Si no me equivoco, del contenido de este libro tengo casi todo en edici n espa ola X Men 53 54, Uncanny X Men 334 335, Avengers 400 401, Onslaught X Men, X Man 18, X Force 57, Cable 34 and Incredible Hulk 444 Cuando lo corrobore lo confirmo.
After reading Prelude to Onslaught, I hoped that Onslaught would be better I can honestly say that Book 1 is better than the prelude, but not significantly better While Onslaught is an interesting villain, the story spans too many titles I was hoping that it would be linear My hopes are not high for Book 2.
I thought it was indeed epic and suspenseful, but very scattered I guess book one is the time to open up plenty of plot lines, but it took the focus off onslaught too much Look forward to reading the rest and seeing where it all goes.
The artwork and action is excellent, but the story is hard to follow and doesn t have a clear ending.
the start of this series is strong but halfway through this gets silly with other non xmen books.
Since I m not a fan of Hulk or Cable, my interest dipped at those storylines but those including the X Men and Avengers were definitely what I was looking for A classic must read
Onslaught was a major storyline in the X men universe, and it works well to combine Charles Xavier and Magneto into one unified villain.lockheed40books
I remember owning several of the issues in this collection I m looking forward to revisiting the series without worrying about trying to catch each issue of each series.
Just have to get the next volumes and I m sure I ll unlock true happiness.
A well constructed crossover, but also one that feels primarily like it s going through the motions.
These read a lot better when I was a kid, but still fun to go back through.
I know I m going to love the story once I really get into it, but all this background on Xavier and Magneto is a bit overkill, honestly
