    This was a brutal, wearying, battle of a book, filled with miseries of every stripe. The stakes of The Fall have never been higher, or the conflict more dire. Only a fool would miss out on this story.

    X-Men Red #14 is thus far the best issue in the Fall of X era we’ve gotten so far. Al Ewing does an excellent job using the fallout of the Hellfire Gala to enhance what he has going on with the split of The Great Ring. The intensity of the warring faction creates even more interest in the war that has consumed Planet Arakko.

    X-Men Red continues to show what superhero storytelling can be- emotional, action-packed and always a great all around read!

    X-Men: Red #14 shows Storm’s portion of the Great Ring reeling in the wake of Genesis’ return and Orchis’ attack on Earth; the surviving mutants on Mars face both a civil war and purge from two very powerful forces. And so much of the issue focuses on the transition from the events of X-Men: Red #13 and X-Men: Hellfire Gala 2023 into a new status quo. Beyond the cumbersome text of data pages that serve to span the initial months of the war, the issue opts to emphasize fields of battle and strategy sessions amongst the mutant leaders. Altogether it proves an effective bit of framing for a sprawling conflict with both the heroes and villains of the story well established by the issue’s end. X-Men: Red #14 sets the stage for Arrako’s future and promises abundant excitement as some of the most powerful and intriguing new characters in X-lore battle for the future of Arrako.

    X-Men: Red #14 pulls off an all-out war that feels heavy on high stakes and impactful moments. That’s not easy to do, especially in one issue, but by the end, you’ll believe Storm and her army are fighting for their lives.

    None of the outcomes depicted in the book are entirely unpredictable, yet Al Ewing’s story is another extremely strong entry into the Fall of X following the aforementioned X-MEN #25 and IMMORTAL X-MEN #14. He’s been building to this moment for awhile now, giving readers sufficient examples of how Arrakan peace was always tenuous at best. This is all likely leading to the return of Apocalypse and him creating a new team of X-Men, but I’m going to sit back and let Ewing continue to impress me with his Storm-focused storytelling.

    I am intrigued by the direction of X-Men Red #14 and its contribution to the broader X-Men mythos. There is a wealth of potential that I hope will be fully realized. With this in mind, I believe this storyline will be memorable for years to come.
