• Terrible acts committed by mutant revolutionary Cyclops have placed mutantkind in extinction's crosshairs...and no one is left to suffer the consequences more than his time-displaced counterpart-teen-aged Scott Summers.
•  As Storm and her team whisk Earth's remaining mutants away to safe haven, the original X-Men do just the opposite: emboldened by super heroic ideals, the ALL-NEW X-MEN set out on the road to save their world and write their own futures.
•  But can youthful optimism reverse the damage Cyclops has done?

    I love the art (Mark Bagley and Andrew Hennessy), and I like the story (Dennis Hopeless) - there's a lot of potential here. Read Full Review

    The evolution of young Scott Summers' character is a key moment in both the issue and Hopeless' introductory arc. The moment almost seems overly convenient and sentimental, but it's actually a welcome change of pace from the expected violence. The good guys all win, the bad guys are rounded up and there are no last-minute betrayals or backstabbing in the name of surprise or sensationalism. "All-New X-Men" #3 is a pleasant reminder that the X-Men don't have to be about revolutions and genocidal agendas; Hopeless and Bagley show readers that the X-Men can be fun, too. Read Full Review

    All-New X-Men #3 brings the first arc to a fitting conclusion, and although it may have been nothing out of the ordinary it continued to prove the consistency of this narrative. It also acted as a wonderful bridging point for our young mutants, and if the creative team expand upon this the right way I can easily see this becoming the must have X-Men title of this All-New All-Different Marvel.

    ALL-NEW X-MEN #3 wraps up the book's first arc satisfyingly and sets up a fun adventure for its protagonists " and even though the art could be better, it remains an issue X-fans shouldn't miss. Read Full Review

    All-New X-Men #3 is an energetic romp that will satiate X-fans and, at least, leave readers entertained. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Jan 17, 2016

    All-New X-Men is the lightest of the re-launched titles. Its a fun story that focuses on the younger students as they try to survive in a time that isnt theirs. Dennis Hopeless has made this an enjoyable book so far, but should try harder to get everyone involved more. The art is good and adds to the playful tone of the series. This is the X-Men book that anyone can pick up and enjoy. Read Full Review

    Hopeless and Bagley have shown a strong sense of story, character, and purpose in their first two issues so hopefully this issue is just a growing pain. Read Full Review

    Ouch, that was... Not good. For three issues we are building to see if this Ghosts of Cyclops team will switch to good or get busted. And will Cyclops and the X-Men get lumped in with them or help to bring them down? What we get is a climax that happens off page; the plot culminates in this poorly conceived speech from young Cyclops in the middle of a hostage situation escalated by vigilante teenagers rushing in to be heroes. I'm thinking any second they're all getting mowed down, instead the situation is resolved OFF PAGE! I can't help but wish that America's police officers were as restrained a the cops in this comic. The kids on both sides are begging to be shot, yet for some reason the officers don't even detain the X-Men after they rushed into a POLICE PRECINCT BEING HELD HOSTAGE (as far as the police knew)! I realize this is just a comic book, but this is the not the same quality writing we got from Dennis Hopeless in Avengers Arena and Undercover. Also, you don't pay property damage to the same people that impound your vehicle. I'm excited to see that Toad will get some attention in the next issue, unfortunately, I won't be sticking around for it.

    The tale of the Ghost of Cyclops comes to an end with a somewhat satisfying conclusion. The issue I am having with this new title is that Hopeless seems to only be interested in telling one story at a time. At this time it is Cyclops. Kid Apocalypse is so far in the background there are times you forget he is part of the team. The action is okay, but seems something of an afterthought. While I don't think this title is completely forgettable, I do think it needs to get a bit stronger to not reach that point.

    I have really enjoyed this take on the young Scott. I couldn't imagine having to step out from your own shadow, for whatever it is that Cyclops did. As good a start as this arc had, however, the ending is disappointing. I don't read comics for a dose of reality, but this was too much to bear.
