Mutant Inhuman Madness!
Reviewed in the United States on November 3, 2019
This oversized hardcover collects issues 0-6 of the Inhumans Vs. X-Men event. The Inhumans have released a terregin mist over the world (read Jonathan Hickman's Infinity event to see how). It transforms any human that has a Inhuman gene in them into their true form. As the mist engulfs the world it becomes clear that it is harmful to mutants even leading to death. The X-man Beast joined up with the Inhumans to find a way to fight the effects of the mists on mutants. Cyclops and his group of X-men took a more hostile approach and attacked the Inhumans and the clouds. Cyclops ends up being killed by Queen Medusa ordering King Black Bolt to vaporize him with his voice. Or so Emma Frost using her telepathic powers wants the world to believe. Cyclops actually died earlier due to a virus from the mists. This lead to a truce between the two subspecies. And this where the event picks up.
The event itself is very good. Action packed with good little character moments. Charles Soule and Jeff Lemire wrap up their Inhuman and X-men runs respectively in epic fashion. I will say its a shame that both sides didn't just sit down and talk it out. Many lives would have been saved. But this is superhero comic books. The heroes have to fight! Haha. It's cool and very fitting which group have the cooler heads and save the day. I liked it. Just be warned that the 0 issue is just a info dump of what has previously happened.
The art is great. Featuring the talents of Kenneth Rocafort, Leinil Francis Yu, and Javier Garron. They all rock.
Hopefully the Inhumans and the X-men throwing down don't become a regular thing but the way this conflict came about was pretty well setup. All in all a good story.
