    It took 12 issues but we have our first crossover of the 2 current X-books. There's nothing you haven't seen before, but a Mojo appearance is always a lot of fun. Mojo is making the X-men relive their past as he throws all their greatest hits against them. Sadly, too many X-Men die early on so you know they are going to reappear later. Whoever decided to give Rachel Summers and Jean Grey the same haircut should be shot.

    Are you ready for a crossover yet? No? Well too bad, because Marvel loves their crossovers more than a crackhead loves crack. Also, I get that X-Men Gold is trying to recapture the magic of classic X-Men stories, but to literally make them relive their most famous battles (in their classic costumes, no less) is just lazy. What's worse is that this book is pretty pointless. There are no stakes and nothing super interesting even happens (except for a lot of pew-pew and punch punch).

It's one of the few Marvel Legacy books that's embraced the legacy of the teams in more than just a perfunctory sense, and throwing the X-Men through the biggest events of the past 50 years is clever. It also has some pretty big revelations between the two teams, especially with regards to Magneto. Plus Longshot's always fun. But then there are some things that make me despair, like the fact that the first half of the crossover kills off so many characters that it instantly becomes obvious that none of them are dead, and the stakes are just completely gone by the end. It also feels like this isn't as big a deal for the Gold team as it does for the Blue one, so it's a bit lopsided. Blue gets the better half of the artist stick as well, with Jorge Molina returning for three consecutive issues, while Gold gets Mike Mayhew, Marc Laming, and Diego Bernard on its three, who are all good artists in their own right but don't really offer up much in the way of synergy with Molina or each other. It really feels like this should be X-Men Blue Volume 3, rather than Gold, for many, many reasons. It's a good story in parts, but then others make me shake my head.

    You remember Mojo? You know, the bloated would-be TV mogul from another dimension you never cared for? Well, you didn't ask for him but he's back. So he manages to catch Gold and Blue in his latest production to increase his ratings. And... Cut! That's about it. Not abysmally bad this book certainly ain't good in any way either. Merely insignificant. No real stakes- every on-screen death is exactly that and we all know it-, heavy-handed critic of Hollywood, self-conscious dialogues- sometimes fun, You remember Mojo?

Merely insignificant. No real stakes- every on-screen death is exactly that and we all know it-, heavy-handed critic of Hollywood, self-conscious dialogues- sometimes fun, I'll admit it- and Mojo monologues boring over redemption. Mojo was a lousy bad guy back in the 80's and it didn't improve over the years. As for Longshot he is portrayed here as a vapid revolutionary Youtubber. Wow. Color me impressed. Nah, just kiddin'. What's to save? Some nostalgia moments for old farts like me who read the original stuff way back when, some fun lines from both Guggenheim and Bunn and Jorge Molina's decent art on Blue  (three uninmpressive different artists on Gold). There's no objective reason you should read this book. Just know that your eyes won't bleed if you do.

    X-Men crossovers used to mean something; here, it means 6 issues running around punching Mojo-bots. Taking a shot every time someone mentions Jean and Scott's psychic rapport might make this bearable.

    Perhaps I just don't care for Cullen Bunn's sensibilities as I have tended not to like his work with the Spiderverse either, but while it is interesting to see Mojo again and dynamics of the history of the X-men are explored, the stakes are so high that it becomes clear the stakes are actually quite low.

What do I mean: so many key characters die early on and one realizes that they can't be gone. The combination of X-men Gold and X-men Blue are interesting, the new Generation X makes an unnecessary cameo, the going through Claremont and Jim Lee legacy issues is interesting as is the reintroduction of Longshot, this ultimately doesn't do much. While this is a trade for X-Men Gold, the X-men Blue issues are actually stronger: some of it is the character dynamics are clearer and X-men Blue team has less baggage having not actually experienced most of the legacy battles being referenced. Furthermore, Jorge Molina is the primary X-men Blue artist on most of its issues in this trade and his art stands out despite being largely in Marvel house style. X-men Gold has Mike Mayhew, Marc Laming, and Diego Bernard on its three issues, but none of their art seems memorable even by their own standards and the inconsistency shows in X-men Gold's pages. Lots of nostalgia, but sometimes I wonder if that is primarily what post-2015 X-men seems to be largely dealing in.

Art isn't bad and it was interesting to see the first real interaction of the Gold and Blue teams. Overall not bad at all, and I haven't been a fan of recent X-Men titles.

    I’ve never been a real big of Mojo, so perhaps I went into this with low expectations. I was actually surprised at how much I ended up enjoying this, though, with the X-Men divided into various teams and stuck in Mojo’s simulations as they fight to survive and relive the various Big Event milestones of the past. We get riffs on X-Tiction Agenda, Mutant Massacre, AvX, and the like. It ends up being pretty enjoyable, and being a crossover between X-Men Gold and Cullen Bunn’s X-Men Blue, the crews I’ve never been a real big of Mojo, so perhaps I went into this with low expectations.

Mojo's plot pits the X-Men against "classic" foes in a series of scenarios that takes readers on a retrospective tour of the all the "greatest hits" of X-Men history. This playlist is both the strength and weakness of this book. Readers are shown glimpses of (**inhales deeply**): X-Men: Asgardian Wars ,X-Men: Inferno ,X-Men: Days of Future Past, X-Men: Mutant Genesis ,X-Men: X-Tinction Agenda ,Avengers vs. X-Men ,X-Men: Mutant Massacre as well as Apocalypse, the Shi'ar, the Savage Land, and Krakoa. (**whew**) The strength of Mojo's twisted tour through X-Men history is that it was an equal mix of fun and nostalgia to see how many of Mojo's battlegrounds I knew from years past. Unfortunately the scope of the tour is also the weakness of this issue: all the references are ridiculously short, lasting anywhere between a couple panels and a handful of pages. There is no space to even explain why the scenario is noteworthy. If you don't have a familiarity with the scenarios, then they are meaningless and repetitive. A little editorial eye could've paired the list down and made it much more meaningful for both new and veteran X-fans. That said, I've loved Mojo since he first appeared in X-Men: Longshot. He lives in a world of sensationalism, media manipulation, viewership, and ratings and offers not a little sly commentary on our own media-saturated world. Longshot's YouTube channel was an smart counterpoint to Mojo's broadcast-based media empire. There is a lot to like here, even if it was a little effusive. The relationship between Kitty and Jean's teams will certainly be impacted by the revalations in this book. I hope some of the threads dropped in the is novel are picked up in the next issues. After this crossover issue, the adventures of Kitty's Gold team continue in X-Men Gold Vol. 4: The Negative Zone War and Jean's Blue team continue in X-Men Blue Vol. 3: Cross-Time Capers

    Ah Mojo.... this psychotic obese cyborg alien from his own dimension... when he shows his face, it means two things: Team-up and old stuff. This Volume delivers both of those! Gold and Blue teams of X-Men join together for a team building friendly game of baseball in Central Park. Can there ever be a time when the teams get together to hang out and nothing happens but a relaxing day of peace? Nope... Suddenly, plinth-like antennas start descending from the sky and Mojovision makes itself known to Ah Mojo.... this psychotic obese cyborg alien from his own dimension... when he shows his face, it means two things: Team-up and old stuff. This Volume delivers both of those! Gold and Blue teams of X-Men join together for a team building friendly game of baseball in Central Park. Can there ever be a time when the teams get together to hang out and nothing happens but a relaxing day of peace? Nope... Suddenly, plinth-like antennas start descending from the sky and Mojovision makes itself known to the city, taking over every channel. In Mojoverse, heroes are forced to relive some of their worst battles ever, sort of like old gladiatorial combat, including to the death. The X-Men are initially divided into 3 teams: Team One: Cyclops, Kitty Pryde, Prestige, Bloodstorm - taking on 'Days of Future Past' Sentinels Team Two: Angel (Blue Team), Iceman (BT), Storm, Logan - battling in the 'Asgardian Wars' Team Three: Jean Grey, Beast (BT), Nightcrawler, Jimmy Hudson, Colossus - 'Inferno' storyline Longshot joins Team One shortly after it begins. 'Fall of the Mutants', 'Mutant Genesis', 'Avengers vs. X-Men', a weird respawning enemies adventure in the Savage Land, and 'Mutant Massacre' also make appearances here, also changing the costumes of the heroes to match the time period when they originally went through the storyline. Eventually, all the teams come together and fight past the simulations, first in Mojoworld itself, then back in New York. It is another team (Magneto, Danger, and Polaris) who end up saving the day, but in turn, the secret that Magneto was leading the Blue Team comes out and puts the future of his association with them at risk. Mojo, having been deleted from his own universe, is shown to be surviving in the sewers, with promise to return soon. Having a storyline like this pays homage to all the X-Men have been through, and serves as a reminder of all the wonderful storylines that readers can go back and experience. Both Gold and Blue books are really great right now and I hope it can continue. High recommend.

    X-Men Gold has been entirely mediocre, while X-Men Blue shows some flashes of goodness. This crossover between the two unfortunately falls on the mediocre side. Honestly, I've never liked Mojo as a villain because his stories tend to go straight over the top into pointless-zany land. But, this one is worse than most. The majority of the crossover is spent in a repercussions-free zone where characters fight against animatronic versions of their past.

There's a slight nostalgic value, but overall this is pointless. And the zany isn't even close to fun (or funny). We step outside of the repercussion-free, dull-retread zone for the last few issues, when our heroes actually meet our foes, but really it's just a continuation of a six-issue-long, dull, uncompressed fight. The only things saving this volume are the bits of nostalgia and the fun meet-ups between people from different teams, particularly some "familial" reunions. Otherwise, this is totally skippable — which has been sadly the case for too many X-comics post Secret Wars. I dunno what happened after so much greatness in the late '00s and early '10s.

Yes, yes, I get that this was kind of her former outfits, but as far as I remember this current version of JG hasn't worn anything so revealing. And the writer (or artist) could have made a point out of this. A simple "I wore this!" or trying to tug it up and then grabbing something to put around her waist would have been sufficient. And would have made a nice comment on the ridiculous overly sexual outfits of that era. *climbs off soap box* But on the whole I really enjoyed this.

Similarly to how I rated the Blue volume 3 lazy because of time travel, this one is a *little* lazy also by dredging up Mojoworld and all that jazz again. However I thought the "Legacy" catch with the X-Men fighting a lot of their previous big battles was fun to read.

If you want an afternoon of remembering the X-men's greatest slugfests, this volume is for you. If you want something with a bit more depth that moves the story forward, there are better books out there.

The art in that first issue was absolutely phenomenal but also weird and I wish it would have been used throughout the entire volume.

    For me anyway, this event/crossover fell pretty flat and a lot of nostalgia induced by the storyline was lost on me as I've only read X-Men in the 2000's and up. The whole plot is really a device to bring back a lot of retro characters and villains but the problem is that they don't really add up to much and the heroes never really seem in danger though I admit that I skipped the X-Men Blue issues because nothing in the Gold ones made me want to jump into a new book right now.

    Guggenheim does a nice job with this, it's not perfect but it's wonderful for what it is--a classic X-Men/Mojo clash. In fact it felt classic enough that I was a touch frustrated with what felt to me like overwhelming nostalgia as the plotline played out, but Guggenheim managed to make it a new twist on Mojo that worked just fine for me, and it was a great action/adventure X-Men story. Just big enough to justify all the fisticuffs and just enough character to make the plot matter.

In fact it felt classic enough that I was a touch frustrated with what felt to me like overwhelming nostalgia as the plotline played out, but Guggenheim managed to make it a new twist on Mojo that worked just fine for me, and it was a great action/adventure X-Men story. Just big enough to justify all the fisticuffs and just enough character to make the plot matter. Not the greatest thing ever, but a lotof fun.

    +kitty Pryde track suit +a great setup to a really cool concept, albeit, also ridiculous ++stellar art style +prestige/cyclops banter -quick and lame death only to up the stakes of the world it seems +loving this concept with each new layer +secrets getting exposed ++costume swapping -subverting deaths ++impressive battle panels +artwork is great here -/+a bit too clean of a wrap up, this happens sometimes with big group events +a fun romp

    While the Mojoworld story arc was interesting, there weren't any real surprises for me. Then again, I've been reading X-Men since 1981 and I returned to this book as it contained most of my favorite team of characters. Still, for newer readers, this would be a wilder ride, and I like the idea of Mojo trying to conquer Earth via television.

    This is worse than the pointless The Mighty Thor Vol. 3: Asgard/Shi'ar War. Both have forced conflicts with little behind them other than the whims of the puppeteer. I'm not a fan of tropes like these. This is worse than the pointless The Mighty Thor Vol. 3: Asgard/Shi'ar War.
