All-New X-Men #36

   It's been a busy weekend, so your old pal Chuck is running behind - so here are some quick reviews (and an upcoming guest review) to get us back on schedule).

   I've been complaining that the latest, universe-hopping story in All-New X-Men has been taking too long to get going.

   The story started with the team made up of the original X-Men team that's been brought to modern times, with X-23 taking the place of the absent Cyclops. They meet a powerful new mutant who transports everyone to the Ultimate Universe, where they're all separated and faced with new menaces.

   Luckily, they have allies, too, including Spider-Man and the Ultimate X-Men.

   After a slow start and middle, the story kicks into high gear with this issue and brings the whole storyline to a fast and fun resolution (providing some enticing glimpses into alternate realities along the way).

   It's a good wrap to the story, and gets us ready for the next big event - the Black Vortex. Recommended!
