CBR Review: X-Men: Second Coming #1

I recently reviewed X-Men: Second Coming #1 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Beginning the third part of the trilogy of stories that include Messiah Complex and Messiah War, X-Men: Second Coming #1 does an adequate job of setting up the players in this event, but doesn’t exactly demonstrate what the plot will be. If you were to judge by what’s given, there doesn’t seem to be much of a plot set up beyond 'Hope returns to the present with Cable and some bad guys want to kill her using means that will be determined sometime in the future.' For the kick-off issue of an event years in the making, there’s a significant lack of depth in the plotting and not much here that compels to continue reading the story."
