Quick Link : Ultimate X-Men 49 review

Very well written review and critique of Ultimate X-Men 49 at Secret Wars on Infinite Earths. Complete with insight into characterization and how many characters have become less interesting as time goes by. Bit of an emphasis on Rogue, as she was a large part of the battle in this issue, but as you all know, any information/conversations on Rogue are relevant to my interests.

Rogue definitely remains a great example of how the mutant hook presented a fairly basic slate of an idea, but eventually expanded it through the tugs and pulls inherent to that universe. It took some time, but like a Scarlet Witch, Rogue grew beyond the timid and uncertain young girl, to join the more assertive and well defined characters.

Now go read the rest dammit.
