5つ星のうち 4.0 A riff off of "The Hounds of Zaroff". 2012/12/5

What its about? "The Most Dangerous Game" is an infamous storyline of a rich madman who lures fellow humans to an island vacation only to turn the tables on them and reveal that they are there for sport: his sport! He will be hunting them! In this Ultimate X-Men riff on that classic storyline (collecting prints of 54-57 of the series, written by B. K. Vaughn) Longshot and Mojo and Spiral and Arcade are introduced as the hunters (Mojo, Spiral, and Arcade) and the hunted (Longshot). There are great takes on these sideways-universe characters (ex., Mojo in the original universe was a megalomaniacal Dr. Moreau ruler of the Mojoverse, a broadcast magnate interested in dominating entertainment and broadcast ratings; in this ultimate incarnation he is an dredlocked-albino about the size of the classic Kingpin and he has brought his idea of hunting mutants to the death as sport and broadcasting it to Genoshan television to huge ratings). Our X-Men come in on two fronts: 1) as an investigative team to uncover Longshot's supposed innocence (he was made into a "murderer" to make his being hunted more palatable) and 2) as a team, going against Professor X's directives, trying to directly rescue Longshot. That doesn't go so well. So, there are two different X teams that go to the island and neither team's plight goes quite as planned.

This is an entertaining and lively story, mixing in the new with the old, and further developing some plotlines between and about characters (Colossus is gay? Bobby and Kitty have a thing for each other? Dazzler likes Angel? well, that last one was obvious). A solid little story.

5つ星のうち 5.0 One of the best of BKV's run! 2009/6/22

***I've written a review that encompasses this book, plus the earlier two volumes: The Tempest and Cry Wolf, which comprise the first year of Brian K Vaughan's 2-year run. Get all three paperbacks or the Hardcover Volume 5 for the complete story. They are all 5-stars, in my estimation***

I've posted reviews for hardcovers 1-3 in this series. Reviews that trashed the bloated, stupid mess that Mark Millar made of the first three years of Ultimate X-Men. In the issues contained in this volume, Brian Vaughan pulls off a work of genius: he manages to work with everything he's been given, and make it real, personal, exciting, fun, and actually resets the book on the path it should have been on all along: presenting the X-men as teenagers, who behave like teenagers, with all of their problems and flaws, plus the problems of learning about their mutant powers and roles. He makes the characters lovable. He writes plotlines that are taught and tense. He writes dialog that provides a particular voice to each character, and is frequently laugh-out-loud funny.

The artwork is exceptional throughout the whole book, with Brandon Peterson's typically serviceable pencils jacked up to ultimate levels by the incredible inking and coloring, and Stuart Immonen's typically genius work perfectly fitting the "teen" feel of the book.

Let's get specific. The first arc features a gleeful gutting of the Mr Sinister concept from the original series. This is a trademark of Vaughn's UXM-- take a familiar character or storyline, and recast it in a way that gives a wink and a nod to the old, but reinvents the concept in an unexpected way. Who cares if you loved the original Sinister? You can see him back in action in recent X-men titles like Messiah Complex, ok? He's scary AND ridiculous here, and it works.

The second arc once again ties some "legacy" concepts in new knots: Gambit is introduced, as well as the villains Fenris. The Gambit character works well here-- amazingly, Vaughan sets up the relationship between him and Rougue so well. Gambit's powers are used very effectively, as well--the fight between him and the X-Men, including an awesome throw-down with Wolverine, is perfectly choreographed!

The third arc is another genius reinterpretation of a classic: Longshot/Spiral/Mojo!! It is brilliantly plotted with a kicker twist. The character of Longshot is very well done, including his powers, which are used in some really clever ways.

Throughout each of these arcs, there is an excellent balance of character development and action. The fight scenes are are very well worked-out, with the character's powers feeling real, and playing off of each other in surprising ways. This is another monster improvement over Millar's UXM. In the earlier issues, the characters' powers were jacked up through the roof and they were always used in the bluntest manner possible. Vaughn takes the hard road and shows the X-Men regularly getting their butts kicked by resourceful villains. When they win battles, they win by working together and letting their powers play off of each other, or by digging in to reserves of powers or using their powers in new ways. (And NOT new ways like Pheonix cutting out a piece of the Earth's crust and sending it into outer space, ahem, Mark Millar, that was just STUPID.)

But the real focus of these stories is putting the characters on new footing--grounding their personalities, personal stories, and relationships with each other in utterly credible ways. Each character gets space and BV establishes motivations for them that will carry through the next two years of the book. Incredibly, he manages to work with all the plot and character elements that have been preestablished, and in many cases, he makes those prior events more believable and meaningful in retrospect than they ever were in their original forms, due to Millar's hack jobs. For example, Storm's relationship with Beast was always completely contrived. It never felt REAL, just invented for a plot device. But Vaughan uses it to establish motivation for Storm. He uses it to show her character, to give her motivation. He makes their relationship poignant in retrospect and gives it power and weight.

Professor X is, thank god, toned way down from the inexplicable maniac that Millar portrayed him as in issues 1-36. He's still icy cold and calculating, but hardly the stupid, deluded jackass prone to speechifying and pontificating he was. He's generally just less of an ever-present nuisance. His character takes a backseat so the kids can drive.

Jean Grey and Cyclops's relationship gets a much deeper treatment from Vauhgn as well. He's frightened of her powers, jealous of her mental intimacy with Xavier. Vaughan subtly introduces the idea that Cyclops is terribly scared to lose Jean-- to her powers, or to an identity as a world-class telepath--it is clear he is starting to cling. You finally feel the love--at least from Scott! All so ominous...It is all done with subtlety.

Wolverine and Storm work brilliantly together. Vaughan seems to have been inspired by the deep and conflicted relationship that Claremont established in the original series. The character's play off each other to reveal each other's personalities and inner turmoil. Previously, these characters were shown to be moody and conflicted, but in a vacuum--they always lacked motivation. Here, by putting them together in dramatic situations and deep conversations, we actually see what makes them tic.

Other character's seem to have their own natural pairings that allow their personalities and personal stories to bounce off of each other: Dazzler/Angel, Colossus/Nightcrawler, Iceman/Kitty Pride, this gang of six junior leaguers also get their due, with deep relationships and stories of their own. They also provide tons of comic relief. Vaughan's gift for humorous dialog shines when writing these characters. I was constantly laughing at the way they relentlessly crack on each other.

Back a few issues, I was pretty skeptical when Dazzler was introduced as a pissed-off (and utterly fake and cheesy) punk rock singer. But BKV does the character right-- she's hilarious and believable. In a lesser writer's hands, she'd be a caricature of teen angst with a loud mouth. In this gifted writer's hands, she's intelligent, disaffected, funny, and, unbeknownst to herself, completely lost and crazy.

Similarly, when Millar suggested Colossus was gay, I took it as yet another ploy to add "cool", "edgy", and "contemporary" elements to the book (another Millarism that ruined the first 3 years). But this writer makes him real. He's twisted up inside and feels like a mutant among mutants.

I could go on, but by now you get the picture: it is all here. Fantastic art, great characters, inventive plots and battles...this is the Ultimate X-Men we've been waiting for, and a worthy companion book to Ultimate Spider-Man, or Ultimate Fantastic Four. This is a work of super-hero genius, and luckily, it's just the first of two years with BKV at the helm!

I've liked Vaughan's work in the past, especially with the group of teenage superheroes in Runaways, I've always had some fondness for Longshot, and I was hankering for some good old soap operatic X-Men action, and to top it all off, I dig Stuart Immonen's work, so I decided to give this volume a shot, despite not having read any of the rest of his run on this series. At $9.99, how bad could it be?

Well, it's not bad, but that's the problem; that's the best thing I the way that the X-Men (and the reader's) can really say about it. My reaction was very tepid. I liked how the X-Men's expectations (and the reader's) expectations are violated, there's some nice character work (especially on Colossus and Dazzler), and at four issues, it's certainly not "decompressed", but this still didn't click with me like Vaughan's other work has. Maybe that's because he's working with other people's characters here, whereas the Runaways and the casts of Y the Last Man and Ex Machina are his creations, or maybe I'm just sick of the X-Men (not even Joss Whedon and John Cassaday's Astonishing X-Men could hold my attention), but at the end of the day, I can't give it more than 3 stars.

While I think this hits the right beats for an X-Men story, and works for me a lot more than what Mark Millar did with the book at its inception, I'm still not as fond of it as I was Grant Morrison's New X-Men, which is the best thing I've read with the franchise since Claremont's glory days. I'd still say it's worth your $9.99, just don't expect Vaughan's best.
