After considering all of the buildup and promotion which Marvel have dedicated to the launch of their newly revitalized Uncanny X-men title, I can’t help but feel a little disappointed regarding the quality of first two installments. That’s not to suggest that the two issues which have been given thus far are bad, but rather I was expecting a lot more from the title than what the audience are currently being presented with. My main complaint is that this seems much more like your average/run-of-the-mill X-men story, than the pivotal narrative that the “Disassembled” storyline implies. As of this moment, writers Ed Brisson, Kelly Thompson and Matthew Rosenberg have yet to deliver a compelling enough conflict to distinguish the Disassembled story arch from the countless other X-men narratives. Despite, the manin narratives relative mediocrity, the characters are able to elevate this installment and make it feel like an enjoyable read. Whilst this issue doesn’t exactly feature huge character moments, it is the smaller character interactions and engaging character dynamics which retain the audience’s attention.
