Verdict - 2.9

- I had high hopes for this series as I loved the Age of Apocalypse story arc in the 90s, but lets say I'm not impressed. The issue suffers from being too "dark" in both the colors and in the story itself. I understand the gritty feel they are going for but the combination of the art and the dark colors makes the story really hard for me to follow. I guess I'm living the glory days for Joe Madureira and the vibrant colors used in the 90s. This issue continues well, I'm not sure. I want to think the X-Terminated are trying to free humans from Weapon Omega's rule, but then again it's the mutant factor that confuses me a little. I understand the mutants are against Apocalypse in any form, but I'm not sure how they are aligned. It also seems as even though X-Terminated use mutants, they are actually using them. In this issue they had no problems sacrificing their ex-mutant team members, Sabretooth and Jean Grey. I'm holding out for the upcoming crossover and hopefully things get better.
