Seppin Reviews: Mr. & Mrs. X #2

Welcome back to our new series in which we review the comics that we read every week. This week Seppin is going to be reviewing Mr. & Mrs. X #2 by Kelly Thompson and art by Oscar Bazaldua.

 

~~Review~~

 

Now, this is a funny book! Is it sad that I can’t stop reading Deadpool without hearing Ryan Reynold’s voice?

It’s great that Rogue and Gambit are married. It adds a mechanic that is different from almost every other X-men book now. I like the space honeymoon and I think that it has lead to some fun moments. However, the real star of this book is Deadpool.

Deadpool popped up in the last one to try and steal Rogue from Gambit and also to get an egg that the married couple was protecting. It leads to some hilarious scenes with a ton of innuendos that only Deadpool could get away with. This might actually be my favorite Marvel book that came out this week. (That is not a good thing).

The biggest fault with this issue is Deadpool. He is great, but he totally steals the spotlight in this story. I found myself just waiting for Deadpool to pop back up in a scene to get interested. He is great, but this story should really be focusing on Rogue and Gambit and the adventure that they started together.

Overall, the story is fun, but suffers from Deadpool being more interesting than your main characters.
