    Aside from an unfortunate segue into the realm of sexist trope, this story is a deeply fascinating character study, perfectly balanced with a rip-roaring plot.

    I highly recommend you take a look at this issue, and if you’re a character designer there are definitely some really cool choices being made here that could inspire your designs too.

    X-Men Red #15 does a great job utilizing the Fall of X direction for the franchise to elevate what’s going on at Arakko. With each appearance Genesis is positioned as a terrifying villain. It makes what Storm and her group are doing being given greater importance. All that makes the ending be something where you’re left wanting to read the next issue right away.

    Ewing and Çınar expertly weave a complex story with numerous twists and turns. Every major character feels compelling and has a role to play in the overall narrative. Every feat is exceptionally creative. Every twist, well-plotted. In developing the Genesis War, the book is doing an excellent job of also developing a new IP for Marvel Comics that could very well have a part to play for years to come. There is no reason not to pick up X-Men Red when it accomplishes so much with so little space.

    X-Men: Red #15 delivers its story in a paired narrative exploring the Fisher King’s history and tying it to the newest stage of the war on Arrako. Fisher King has loomed as one of the series’ most intriguing characters and revelations about their past do not disappoint with significant notes of tragedy tied to the hard won wisdom he offers. It ties neatly into the newest twists of the war and a particularly daunting final sequence filled with fearsome imagery and the godlike powers that shape these battlefields. Threaded throughout both are expository elements that continue to shade Arrakii culture and the driving forces that are reshaping their new planet. While X-Men: Red #15 primarily serves to stage the next battle in a seemingly long war, it finds opportunities to develop characters within that staging and delivers another winning issue along the way.

    This issue definitely takes a break from the battle-heavy previous issue to build up one specific character, but the ending indicates the war is far from over and Storm and the Brotherhood are going to be facing some very long odds. Given the work Ewing did here, I would be shocked if the Fisher King didn’t factor into the endgame somehow and I can’t wait to see how this all plays out.

    Major Spoilers

    I’m not sure how to rate X-Men Red #15. On the one hand, my confusion may be due to my current headspace or ignorance of the Arakko storyline. But on the other hand, I am paid to review comics and should, in theory, be the target audience. Is this a gap in my knowledge, or is everyone as confused as me?
