Astonishing X-Men: Unstoppable – Joss Whedon

Whedon can usually be relied on to put together a good story. Action, romance, backstabbing, plot twists, and loss are all part of the game. Unstoppable is no different. He has some of the more popular mutant heroes dealing with an alien race bent on the destruction of Earth; well, to be fair, it is the destruction of Colossus that they care about since he is destined to destroy their home-world. Yeah, I know, go figure, but they aren’t interested in hearing anything other than “He’s dead”. In the beginning, I had some trouble getting into the tale as there were a bunch of changes to the Marvel Universe which I wasn’t aware of (Yeah, I know, go figure), but soon enough I was hooked. Was it the best? No. Did I enjoy it and would I read another? Yep.
