Marvel Heroes (UK Magazine) #2 (Story 2)
Review (No SM)
Summary: X-Men & Sentinels
|Reprinted In: Marvel Heroes Annual (UK) 2013|
A lonely young mutant arrives in a field at night, supposedly to meet a mutant support group. But in reality, he has fallen into a trap, and has become a guinea pig to meet destruction at the hands of a prototype "Sentinel" mutant-hunting robot.
The X-Men arrive just in time to save the boy, who acquits himself well in the battle that follows. Rescued, they bestow the name "Beak" on the bird-faced mutant, and take him back to the Xavier Institute.
This story doesn't try and achieve anything special, and by setting realistic sights it achieves its goal with little problem.
A simple tale that achieves its goals. Three webs.
