Comics Review: Astonishing X-Men Vol.4

Astonishing X-Men Vol.4: Unstoppable
8.5 of 10
Writer: Joss Whedon
Illustrator: John Cassaday

There are only a total of four collected trades for the Astonishing X-Men title but, somehow, after reading Unstoppable, it felt like it was the end of the entire series. Probably because Joss Whedon's stint on the astonishing "X-title" culminates explosively in this volume. There were many memorable events that happened in the book. Mainly because, as the X-Men faces adversity in the barbaric Breakworld, our heroes performed extraordinarily feats. Kitty Pride, especially, who pushed the limits of her power to save the world from a threat that even Earth's mightiest heroes cannot. Cyclops, too, reminded me again of how great of a leader he is by becoming a bait in order to save his teammates. Sadly enough, an X-man made a heroic sacrifice and is forever (probably temporarily) lost. A tragic, yet befitting end to Joss Whedon's run.
