An arrogant bad guy and a humble, but powerful, good guy. I love stories like this, and this one works really well. Not only hitting all the bases with regard to what you want to see, but delivering compelling reasons to come back for more. 9/10

  Love the cover... the mummy struggling to free himself before the water covers him.

  Living Mummy vs Living Pharaoh - next up, the Living Cleopatra and the Living Caesar?

  So the mummy breathes? And not breathing hurts him? But he was buried for millennia!
A much better effort than last issue, who would have thought the Living Pharaoh could be in an interesting story? Wasn't expecting the cross into the superhero universe this early, but the villain made sense. Next up, turn Kang back into Rama Tut?!

  I kind of like Val's art. A little too much reliance on mind control in this title. I am interested in who has the scarab, though.

  The one thing of note about this story is that Professor Abdol/Living Pharaoh's presence here established the mummy as a 616 character. This sets the table for the other horror characters (Dracula, Werewolf, etc.) as 616 residents as well. However, the mention of the Avengers back in issue #7 should've been a tip-off as well.

2 stars, but it almost scored a 3rd star for the ingenious way they snuck in Prof. Abdol, even though he's not one of the better villains. But if Havok and/or the other X-Men had shown up.....

  Soon as the Living Pharaoh showed up, I was so close to closing this one. There's something about bad X-Men villains.
