Uncanny X-Men #15

Writer: Kieron Gillen
Artist: Daniel Acna
Letterer: VC's Joe Caramagna
Publisher: Marvel Comics
Price: $3.99
Release Date: July 04th, 2012

As stated in the last issue, there is a focus on Mr. Sinister for a short while. Emma Frost informs Cyclops early in the issue that Sinister is to blame for Hope knowing about the Phoenix so Cyclops feels that the best idea is to finally get rid of him. Once they locate Sinister, Cyclops feels it should be fairly easy to eliminate him and his people.

Sinister, however, has an army and is not afraid to lose soldiers to wear down the Phoenix Five. Sinister knew this day was coming, and he definitely seems to be prepared and maybe even enjoying the show that is to come.

This issue doesn't really do much to progress the story other than allowing the X-Men to find Sinister and begin their attack. I know that it is important to set up story, but I felt as if this issue was a little dry (other than the small bit about Colossus talking to Cyttorak at the beginning.)

So far, not super impressed with this weeks' pull...

I give Uncanny X-Men #15 a 6/10.
