Title: X-Men Red (2018) #11
Author: Tom Taylor, Roge Antonio (Illustrator), Jenny Frison (Illustrator)
Reading Date: December 19, 2018
Book Summary: The X-Men have battled valiantly against their powerful psychic foe, Cassandra Nova, since the moment she framed Jean Grey for murder on the world stage. They have been hunted. They have been hated. And now…they can fight no more.
Book Review: As we come to the end of the X-Men Red series, we also come to the conclusion of the end of the Cassandra Nova storyline.
And let me say that this end is quite a bit unexpected.
But I cannot say that Cassandra didn't deserve it. She had put too many people's lives on the line to continue spewing hate with the hopes to cause a war between both mutant-kind and homosapiens.
Unfortunately for her, she has the X-Men, the Atlantians, and the Avengers ready to take her down and bring about peace. Of course, Cassandra isn't going to go down easy either and she shows that too several times but Jean Grey is resilient and won't be going down that easily. After all, once upon a time ago she was the held the power of the Phoenix force and had just been resurrected from the dead. She wasn't going to allow Cassandra to cause pain, not when she had just come back with the hopes of bringing peace.
In the end of all ends, Cassandra is finally brought down to heel and not exactly the way one would have thought.
I am honestly sad to see that this series has come to an end. I was hoping to see Jean continue to lead her newfound group onward but I am hearing the X-universe is about to get another reboot and characters are going to be resurrected. So I suppose we will have to see how things are handled once more and see what sort of storylines are brought once more to the tables of the X-Men universe.
