Age of X-Man: Apocalypse and the X-Tracts #3 Review

by Ryan.L on May 08, 2019

Writer: Tim Seeley
Artist: Salva Espin
Publisher: Marvel Comics

This has probably been my least favorite of all the series in Age of X-Man, but this issue may start to change things around. This book finally seems to be finding it's voice, but is it too late?

We get a bit more action in this issue, while also a deeper look at what is going on with the X-tracts. Can En Sabah Nur be trusted? Is he telling the truth or is there something more going on? Which side can we actually trust in this the Age of X-Man? I found myself asking these questions and so many more reading this issue. 

My favorite part of this issue was Omega Red. He was done so extremely well and I loved how Salva Espin styled him. Very simplistic but it is one of my more favorite looks for Omega Red. He didn't seem as ferocious and out of control like he has in the past, maybe part of that is because of whatever it is that happened when the world became the Age of X-Man. I found myself cheering for Omega Red and I hope that possibly he has a larger role to play in the over arcing story. Especially since someone made a point of secluding him from everyone else, there must be a reason past his death factor.

Overall while this is still not a strong book, it is leaps and bounds better than the previous issues. It may have taken awhile for this book to pick up, but it looks like we are in for a very interesting to possibly explosive ending.
