About book Uncanny Avengers, Vol. 2: The Apocalypse Twins (2013)

This was okay, but I've read better. Nice to see Rogue, one of my favourites, getting some screentime, although she's woefully used in this, mostly to just bait Wanda it seems. The rest of this team has a lot of fractures through it too, splitting off completely in the middle of this collection into two opposing teams; can they even be called the Avengers? The storyline's not too difficult to follow, although there are a lot of extra characters floating in and out which, if I hadn't spent so much time on the Marvel wiki, I'd have had difficulty keeping track of.The art's not bad, although I wouldn't rank it amongst the best. Sunfire's one of the better characters; Havok too, I'd be more invested in, although for the team leader, he doesn't get that much focus. I also rather like Eimin, and think she could be pretty interesting if she gets a bit more time focused on her specifically; her brother seems to take more of the focus out of the two Apocalpyse twins. I'm really most excited about the second collected volume of Uncanny Avengers because the writer Remender finally began his continuation of his celebrated Uncanny X-Force run. It's in this volume that Wolverine has begun to reap what he sowed when he ran his covert wetworks team. Unfortunately, his sins may break the newly-formed Avengers Unity squad before it found its feet.This is certainly one beautifully illustrated volume. Remender really took advantage of having the artist Acuña for his second arc.This is not a perfect volume though. If the reader were only to follow read this title, he may miss out a lot of the back story. Not only is Remender's Uncanny X-Force required reading to get the most of the story. This book is steeped in recent Marvel continuity, both Marvel NOW! and pre-Marvel NOW. A casual reader may feel intimidated but the visuals will encourage him to read on and research the back story afterwards.I am truly excited at the prospect of Remender furthering his story after all the hints and teases he gave up in the first volume.

Do You like book Uncanny Avengers, Vol. 2: The Apocalypse Twins (2013)?

A bit convoluted and crazy for several issues, but finished strong. Looking forward to Vol. 3.

Another great story with a cliff hanger ending. Time travel and mutant agendas equal winning.
