    I really disliked Avengers vs. X-Men. It was, to me, the pinnacle of characters behaving in ways that they never would normally, because there would be no story if they didn't. So why did I even bother with Consequences, the follow up? Well, I have a whole stack of Marvel Now books that I want to try, and I figured I'd need this bridge miniseries to make sense of them. And, as it turned out, I'm glad I did. Consequences feels like a much more thoughtful book, in a way. By which I mean that the c I really disliked Avengers vs. X-Men.

Consequences feels like a much more thoughtful book, in a way. By which I mean that the characters are finally acting and reacting in ways that it makes sense for them to act and react. Not much happens, it's true, but a break in nonstop (largely mindless) action was exactly what was called for. And I do find myself interested in the character of Cyclops. This has never happened to me before, and I'm not sure how to deal with it. I still dislike Avengers vs. X-Men. But it looks like that story has actually done some good, in opening the door to very new, very different stories in the future. So I suppose that I can forgive it, at least a little bit.

    Read originally as individual digital comics on the Marvel Comics app. This is the direct follow-up to Avengers Versus X-Men (AVX), the blockbuster miniseries that paved the way for Marvel NOW. This five-parter picks up immediately from the moment AVX ended and ties up some loose threads to set-up the new ongoings that became the Marvel NOW relaunch. It also allowed Kieron Gillen to have his final say on the main cast from his Uncanny X-Men run, which was hijacked by AVX.

It also allowed Kieron Gillen to have his final say on the main cast from his Uncanny X-Men run, which was hijacked by AVX. Especially since five of his Extinction Team members became the Phoenix Five. In the aftermath of the war, the Avengers won and the Phoenix force is dispersed only to restart mutation in humanity long dormant since the House of M and the Scarlet Witch’s infamous sentence fragment. The former Phoenix hosts are on the run and Cyclops gets to brood in prison to atone for the murder of Charles Xavier which in my opinion is an inadequate punishment for a crime of such magnitude. At the end of the series, Cyclops engineers a prison break with the help of Magneto and Magik and now he gets to play mutant terrorist. This is the new status quo, Cyclops has become the poster child for mutant terrorism and the Avengers now had to contend with a growing mutant population and consequences of Cyclops’s last acts as Dark Phoenix. Gillen makes do with what he has been handed and writes an engaging story. He establishes a reputation as a set-up man for Brian Bendis’ titles. His current arc in Iron Man leads directly to Tony Stark adventuring in space with the Guardians of the Galaxy and now his work here leads in to Bendis’ two mutant-centric titles, All New X-Men and Uncanny X-Men.

    This was actually pretty well done. Kieron ends his X-Men run by telling his final tale of Cyclops and his time in prison. After the events of Avengers vs X-Men, Cyclops is satisfied with being in Prison. He did NOT mean to kill the professor and the Phoenix Force did make him. However, he wants to stay where he is, take the punishment, and if something happens to him he'd be a icon for X-men and mutants alike.

The art was solid, the storyline worked well, and cyclops choices made sense. The magneto and side stuff was okay at best. Wish they gave Hope more to do. ANyway, better than the event itself, it worked well enough. A 3 out of 5.

It seems like a rarity in the comic world that characters are being held accountable for their actions unfortunately those in charge aren't intelligent enough to handle things properly. It seems Cyclops has lost any sense he ever had at this point. I almost feel bad for Cyclops until I remember I never liked the character.

    Like the main event, this reads better on second reading - telling what happens next after the Avengers vs X-Men dust settled, with devastated countries, Cyclops and Emma captured and the rest of his core team on the run! This book looks at how and why Cyclops went on to become what he became next; on Hope's next steps; and Wolverine's next step with the Avengers. Another must-read, especially for those looking to understand Cyclops (but not necessarily agree with him!). 8 out of 12.

It’s been a long time in the making (arguably going all the way back to E is for Extinction), but now his transformation is complete. Logan and Cyke have some major unfinished bizz, that’s for sure. This collection is great, but be prepared; it absolutely wets your appetite for what comes next. It’s your move, Bendis!

    This wasn't a straight-up fight with the Avengers against the X-Men, but rather a continuation of a story where some previous good-guy mutants have decided to become rebels/criminals, more or less, because of past events. It definitely makes me want to read more of this story line, although it did jump around a lot. I could have used more context from the previous stories. But I bought this at a sale for $5, so well worth it!

    What happened to Jean? I wonder how Cyclops, Magneto, and Magick will do stopping the bad guys. It was nice seeing the Avengers and the X-men again.

    Being as I wasn’t that much of a fan of AvX, I went into this worried that I wouldn’t like this either. Luckily that didn’t happen. I liked this much better than the actual AvX event. Cyclops is jailed for his actions in AvX. There’s a scene where some inmates try to kill Scott and you get to see that just because he can’t use his optic beams doesn’t mean he can’t still kick your ass. Loved that part.

Well done book here and I need to find what comes after this.

    While this title may have a limited appeal as it partially wraps up the Avengers vs. X-men Marvel event I found it a fascinating read especially after having already devoured Brian Michael Bendis' run on X-Men. While the subtitle is Consequences it could just as easily be "Motivation" as you really see the character of Scott Summers (Cyclops) become radicalized and in many ways that made this a bold story to tell.

    Wow does Raney's art make it hard to read this book without flinching. The colourist (Charalampidis) doesn't help either. At least we finally get to see Carol in the captain Marvel costume - fist book connected to this whole AvX event to even acknowledge her new reality. Better artists come along later to make up for that, but wow. This story seems to be about taking the peaceful aftermath apart and looking closely at the wreckage of the MarvelU after AvX.

Better artists come along later to make up for that, but wow. This story seems to be about taking the peaceful aftermath apart and looking closely at the wreckage of the MarvelU after AvX. So much time is spent with Scott Summers though, and we hardly learn anything new about him - it's like he's hardly changed at all by his Phoenix experience, but we know that's not true - so its almost like trying to see through a brick wall. I don't much care for the tone of this book, which is unfocused and hopping all over the place by issue 3 - what are we supposed to take away from all this? That everyone but Scott is confused and waiting for some big deal to tell them what to do, where to go next? Frankly this book doesn't do much for any characters - which is odd, considering how good Gillen is at inhabiting and expanding the inner world of the players he touches. Instead it seems to exist simply to provide a play-by-play of the moves of various mutants from one scenario to the next. Did you ever read anything about chess masters? The most boring part of such tales to me is the map of chess moves they made during their most famous games. I always tried to read into them some insight into the person, but all I ended up learning was that they moved from one location to another. Seems pretty much the same here. Art in this book is wildly variable. It begins and ends with some terrible drawing, and the middle is decent but nothing I'll remember in a week.

    The bridge between Avengers vs X-men and Marvel NOW!, I wasn't expecting much. But, this book turned out to be a solid read. The main focus is around Cyclops, now a prisoner, and it deals with what he did during the AvX storyline. What I like, and Marvel have been building this up for a while, is that Cyclops has pretty much become the 'new' Magneto, while Wolverine has become the 'new' Xavier. Obviously, they're different characters, but the archetypes are the same. Cyclops believes he's doing The bridge between Avengers vs X-men and Marvel NOW!, I wasn't expecting much.

If you followed AvX, I think it's worth pushing a bit further and reading this. It's a nice epilogue of sorts to the story.

    If only the whole A vs. X event had been this crisp and smart. VERY talky, but it does a great job communicating complicated people's characters and motivations. It honestly could have been stretched out considerably for me, as you in essence have long-term friends and co-workers falling out and walking away from one another, perhaps for the last time (OR IS IT? the narrator to the old Batman show taunts in my head).

Gillen's dialog and plotting are well above average and I begin to think I would read anything he wrote.

    The aftermath of A vs. X. We see Wolverine back in his role as a headmaster of the Jean Grey School and Scott is now a criminal held prisoner. The best thing about this book for me was the role reversal of these two men. Wolverine has often been characterized as a bad boy and never fully being a team player and Scott has always been the Boy Scout. Wolverine is now the "good" boy doing what the government says and running a school to teach future generations of mutants. Scott, on the other hand, The aftermath of A vs. X.

    Disregard that cover; this is not a prelude to Gillen's Iron Man, it's the coda to his Uncanny X-Men, with Cyclops rightly unrepentant over his actions in defence of his species. And it is glorious. If only more superheroes had the guts to do what needs to be done. If only more comics writers had the skill to have them do it without coming off generically grim'n'gritty. Most of all, if only Gillen were writing Cyclops' continuing adventures from the point at which this ends.

    Continuing the great x-read of 2017/18... Whoa. How did such a fantastic book come out of the muddle that was AVX? With every page I turned, I couldn't believe just how good this was. Characters actually acted like themselves (I know, right?), drama that actually felt dramatic, cool twists and turns... This one had it all.

This one had it all. (Well, not a lot of action but after all of the empty action of the crossover itself, I think that is just fine.) When I heard that Cyclops had become basically a terrorist, I couldn't think of a way that the writers could have made that work. And up until this volume, I was still of that mindset but Gillen makes all of this believable in a way that no one else has so far. And for one of the first times, I want to read more about Scott Summers. How'd they do that? This book makes me want to read the next batch of X-books in a big way so it does its job.

    I'd heard that this wasn't so much an ending to Gillen's run as it was a bridge to Bendis' run afterward. That turned out to be very true. It's mostly concerned with Cyclops in prison and how he eventually beaks out. Because I already have Bendis' run bound this actually is a very important book for me to have, and will definitely end out my Gillen book well. The art was pretty good, and it made for an interesting experience to see very different pencilers all inked by the same person.

    This series is a lot more character-focused than the main A vs X series. It serves as a bit of an epilogue to A vs X, and a bridge to some other books that followed. This is mostly focused on the X-Men side of things; the Avengers aren't really the main point here. It's largely focused on Scott Summers. There was a different artist on each issue, so the art isn't really consistent, but I liked it, for the most part.

    Cyclops goes to prison so that the inmates can kill him. Wolverine almost kills him. Wolverine apologizes to him hoping he'll do the right thing. Magik, Danger and Magneto break him out of jail and they become mutant outlaws protecting mutants and saving the world. Colossus is in hiding. Wakanda's still pissed off at mutants and Namor is mad that the Phoenix force "made him" destroy Wakanda. Not bad, you almost feel sorry for Scott.

    “Our roles are nothing more than how the times choose to cast us.” -Magneto Alas, this explains why the so-called character change in Cyclops, because if becoming a “villain” is what it takes to ensure the survival of his people, the X-Men, from the self-righteous, self-entitled jerks who are the Avengers, you can be dead sure that Cyclops will do it.

    Fine epilogue to AVX, although it would have been better as the final issue or two of that series which was also several issues too long. I hate that a series like this can't have a single artist. When read as a whole the changing art makes it feel really choppy, especially in a case like this where some issues were fine but a couple were terrible.

    A well written fallout and direction after the events of AvX. Scott goes to jail, the Extinction team is being hunted down, and multiple betrayals afoot. Worth a read, especially if you enjoyed AvX, and to see the setup for this modern X-Men arc.
