Wolverine and the X-Men #37

   I've been a fan of the "Battle of the Atom" series that's been spooling out over the last nine weeks through most of the X-Men titles, and this issue of Wolverine and the X-Men brings it all to a boil.

   It's a collision of X-teams throughout the ages, as the original (time-traveling) team meets two modern-day versions of the team and two future versions of the team (one good, one evil - maybe).

   As you'd guess, that means this issue is crammed full of more mutants that you can shake Chris Claremont at.

   But it's also a lot of fun, as the assorted teams battle back and forth, and gather together for a final throwdown at an important site in the history of the team - and it's a battle that suggests it may all end in near-armageddon.

   This is a series where you wonder, how are they going to sort this out? (As you'd expect, we'll find out... next week.)

Grade: B+
