Uncanny X-Men #23

   I think I should have reviewed the last issue of Uncanny X-Men. It was loaded with all kinds of action, spectacle and the grand conclusion to a long-running mystery.

   This issue promises a lot - namely, the reading of the Last Will and Testament of Charles Xavier (who, amazingly, is still dead). 

   But that doesn't happen (though we do find out that the will exists).

   The issue is mostly a chance to check on on a few dangling sub-plots: the Dazzler's search for revenge, some apologies for past infractions, and the appearance of a (potentially) deadly new mutant.

   So, unless you're a diehard fan, you could probably skip this one. (Of course, now that new mutant will be the next Wolverine, and you'll all hate me for waving this one off. 

   But I'm willing to take that chance.

Grade: C+
