    Reviews - Mystique - #2

View this issue

8.0 out of 10 - salloria
Surrounded by trained DHS soldiers, Mystique gives them a good fight before eventually succumbing and being taken into custody. Meanwhile, Professor Xavier and Forge discover where to locate Mystique, hoping they're not too late. Hovering in restricted U.S. airspace, Mystique is about to be executed when Magneto arrives and frees her. Boarding the escape jet, she's shocked to see that her savior is in fact Professor Xavier in disguise…

This second issue is a step up from the first, in both writing and art. Brian K Vaughn gives the engine a little gas as he steers the story arc into another gear, fully immersing Mystique into a mystery that she may not be able to "shift" away from. His use of both Mystique and Xavier's mutant abilities is different from the norm, and a welcome addition to both of those characters' repertoires.

Jorge Lucas also benefits from having done one under his belt, and this issue starts showing that progress. From the all-out brawl with the DHS to the various physical changes Mystique goes through, virtually the entire issue was a step up from the first. While the art could still use more tweaking, it's a good start.

Two issues in, and this series and opening arc are picking up steam.
