With a concept for a book that involves the paradoxical sudden appearance of the original, and longsince superceded, five man team of X-Men created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby the wisdom of mounting an ongoing series based on this timelost squad lies largely in contrasting them against the presentday X-Men. And above all keeping things simple.
Twenty-Seven issues in now and Simplicity isn't a word one could use to explain the plot to All-New X-Men.
As always it is Brian Bendis' scripting that holds the interest, as the actual plot itself is an example of the X-Men as its most obfusciating and inpenetrable. A mish-mash plot with a twisted team of future X-Men led by what we are told is Charles Xavier's son...
While it is possible to grasp what is happening and who the players are it is hard to actually talk about this issue. Lots of running around as the Future X-Men lay siege but no real point to any of it...
