I'm already feeling like this is the best X-Men story this century. But that's me. I get enthusiastic.
So apparently Cyclops, Havok, Magik, Wolfsbane, Mirage, Karma, Multiple Man and Chamber are already a team. I didn't know - but I like it. It's a nice cross-section of prior teams.
I guess Havok is good again. Cool. I like the sibling rivalry with Scott. Marvel should keep these two together. Marvel should also keep Magik, Wolfsbane, and Mirage together.
Who's the Egg Man? Whoever he is, I like him. Marvel should over-expose him like they do with the Rhino and the Wrecking Crew. Meanwhile, Orphan-Maker reminds me visually of the High Evolutionary.
Two-page map! I love these things. Roxxon gets Antarctica! Pretty good deal for non-immortal scoundrels. New Heven gets Africa! I hope we get an Africa story. I need to know more about these Bad Angels. Ulik gets Australia! Good. I love Ulik.
Cyclops can't use his power. That's lame. But what's really lame is that he doesn't carry a ray gun. I mean, that's really all his power is. His eyes are ray guns. The cool thing about Cyclops is that he'll never run out of juice. Also he's the best there is at what he does.
So yeah, Cyclops standing there with no means of attacking anyone or defending himself is lame.
Mirage hears the call! I don't know what anyone else thinks, but as for me, the most interesting thing about Dani is her connection to Asgard, Odin, and the Valkyries. Frankly, Dani - not Jane Foster - should be the star of that new comic that's coming out. You know the one.
For some reason, I love the simplicity of Magik yelling "HELP!"
Oh, and in case you were wondering - Dark Elves are the new Ninjas!
Hey look - Scott has a sword. Better than nothing.
Scott: "Havok, do something dumb."
Alex: "On it!"
Wow, that's a seriously big blue giant - SHLORP! Oh man. Today really is a good day. Banshee's back! He and Chamber are holding up the Generation X flag nicely in this book.
Banshee was locked in the X-Men's basement? How rude.
Hope is here too! All right, I gotta say, this book is an embarrassment of riches for me. It was already packed with goodness and then Marvel added Banshee and Hope.
Incidentally, Hope has a ray gun. Scott, take note.
Hope absorbs energy? I didn't know! Does she supply the juice for her ray gun?
Meanwhile, Scott doesn't adhere to the "No X-Man left behind" theory of battlefield ethics. Karma thinks he should. I do too. Lame, Scott.
My one regret is that this story will only be three issues long.
