    This is what we’ve been waiting for! It finally feels like we’re witnessing the full potential of what this series initially offered. Issue #3 of Deniz Camp’s limited series was the best entry yet in what’s turning into unassuming socio-political commentary. The frenemy interactions between Bishop and Cable are sublime, but Serafina’s journey of revelation steals the show as she comes to terms with how hard it is to be part of the group in power. Camp has given Serafina much needed layers of complexity which make her a more sympathetic figure. The juxtaposition between Serafina’s vision for a shared state and Capitán’s nihilistic views of humanity couldn’t be more clear and evoke a more timley throwback to the classic differences between Charles Xavier and Magneto. Luca Maresca’s art ties it all together brilliantly with stunning visuals, especially those involving the giant army of Sentinels attacking The City.

    The quickly escalating violence of Cable and Bishop’s guerilla warfare between two dominant forces, the Children and Orchis, produces some interesting results in Children of the Vault #3. It’s apparent that the scale of these world-breaking armies is beyond any individual superhero, but that carves out space for the duo of time-traveling soldiers to line up weapons and strategies bound to engage fans of Marvel-style science-fiction. The lack of definition about the Children’s exact goals and relationship with humanity is refined as the series’ also serves to introduce a long-awaited threat from the Krakoa era of X-Men comics. Yet much of the potential found in issue #1 is reduced to a necessary battle between heroes (i.e. Cable and Bishop) and villains (i.e. the Children) without engaging in the apparent complexities of that battle, especially given the grand mission statements laid out at the miniseries’ start. In quickly rushing to the conflict itself the story maintains its focus on the adventuresome elements that are its core strength but may leave readers wondering whether this is necessary reading. Luca Maresca’s depictions of over-sized guns and impossibly destructive ammunition makes the case that it’s worth flipping through, even if not necessary.
