Comics this week

X-Men: Schism- Since this is the X-Men, you know a fight is just around the corner and well…it was kind of disappointing really. Now I can understand that writer Jason Aaron is trying to make the new Hellfire Club a big threat but to have a team consisting of Magneto, Namor and Emma Frost crushed in this way by a bunch of kids is disbelieving. Worse this bunch of kids is then defeated by Idie? That’s just ridiculous! However the main plot of the series is the growing rift between Wolverine and Cyclops and while we see the beginning of that in this issue, I can’t see how this incident starting the break in the bond between Wolverine and Cyclops. Wolverine may not like using a kid like Idie but almost everyone in the team had done much worse than what she did this issue. Hopefully things will change in #4 as currently, Schism has been kind of disappointing.

DC Universe Online: Legends #14- Last issue writers Marv Wolfman and Tony Bedard start putting Brainiac’s plan into motion and the payoff here is great. There’s a slugfest between Superman and Wonder Woman while the emotional quote is being filled by Superman and Lois Lane. Also I like how the writers are not confining the action strictly to Earth as Hal Jordan got a call to go to Oa as Brainiac make his move on other planets. Not prefect but a good issue overall.
