    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero May 1, 2013

    ALL-NEW X-MEN continues to be one of my favorite Marvel NOW! series. There is something about the innocence of the younger X-Men forced to deal with the craziness of the current time period. Throughout everything, you can't help but wonder what effects this will have on everything. It's part of what keeps you on the edge of you seat. We know there a crossover coming in the Fall so, more than ever, you'll want to keep a close eye on what's going on. Brian Michael Bendis' portrayal of young Jean Grey and Kitty Pryde is enough to warm my heart. These are two of my favorite X-Men characters and seeing them together reminds me of Kitty's first appearance when their roles were reversed. Stuart Immonen adds to Bendis' writing by making everything look so good. There have been some great runs in the X-Men's history and this just might be my favorite one in recent years.

    It's a refocusing that shows why the X-Men have continued being one of Marvel's hottest properties. They're Marvel's strangest heroes, and it's a good thing. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Matt Sargeson May 7, 2013

    Another fortnight, another strong issue of All New X-Men. There may be a million characters in it but each one, almost without question, feels vital to the plot and well-rounded. With a few moments of action that may well raise the hairs on the back of your neck and some of the prettiest art around, Marvel have arguably got the team book to beat. Read Full Review

    After an issue that kind of fell under the radar with the tenth issue, All-New X-Men bounces right back with another great installment. The suspense, action and overall beauty of this comic continues to amaze with every issue, and with some big plot points coming up soon, this looks to be a turning point in what could become a major series.

    A Comic Book Blog - Daniel Cole May 2, 2013

    So, this is another example of how Bendis and Immonen are crafting an engaging reading experience. The book is a well-oiled machine with each individual component delivering. The art is bombastic, detailed and expressive, proving that Immonen has the talent to produce quality work each month. The script is well crafted and character focused, which shows that Bendis' style suits the X-Men. This issue once again proves that All-New X-Men is the best X-Title on the shelves right now.

    AiPT! - David Brooke May 1, 2013

    The fact that I knew who would defect doesn't make this issue any less interesting and enjoyable. I almost want to say it's all on Immonen for why this issue is so good, but obviously Bendis had a hand in it as well. I really envy those who hold off or discover this when it's all said and done. It's going to be one amazing read from cover to cover. Of course, at the rate this story is going it may be around for 900 issues! Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Mike May 1, 2013

    Even still, this issue was packed so full of greatness, I'd swear someone out there read my mind and decided to grace me with everything I've ever wanted in an All New X-Men issue. Beast gets called out on his BS, Young Jean gets schooled in telepathy, it's reinforced once again that Kitty's HBIC, and Logan gets thrashed by Magneto. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin May 6, 2013

    With Angel joining the Uncanny X-Men, a great scene between Kitty Pride and Jean, Mystique continuing to cause chaos around the Marvel Universe and the Uncanny Avengers appearing at the end there is a lot to love about All-New X-Men #11. The fact that Bendis found a way to bring Jean Grey back and make her the stand out character further elevates how enjoyable this series is. There are also a lot of great character moments that are highlighted by Stuart Immonen fantastic artwork. If youre an X-Men fan I highly recommend checking out All-New X-Men. Read Full Review

    Analog Addiction - Jideobi Odunze May 3, 2013

    I will say that whatever it is that Mystique is plotting, though nothing that directly impacted the X-Men till now is a well placed sub plot to keep the All New X-Men and Uncanny from overlapping to often. It's great that they have some connection, but Bendis made a great move by making sure that Cyclops wasn't really seen as the villain when there is a real one still out there. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joshua Yehl May 1, 2013

    The scene between Jean and Kitty Pryde was pretty amazing. Bendis has taken careful measures to show us how immature and inexperienced this Jean is, which allows us to see her grow from her mistakes with the help of the veteran X-Men. Scenes like this make me see what Beast originally intended when he set this crazy plan into motion. Now if only someone would have a similar heart-to-heart with Cyclops, then some real problems might get prevented. Read Full Review

    The Pop Cultist - Josh Elliott May 1, 2013

    If it's cloth, how does he use his powers? Does he just blast through the cloth every time? But then if it's a visor, how does he open it in order to shoot his optic blasts? There's a real brain-scratcher for you. Read Full Review

  • 8.0 - Stuart Conover May 5, 2013

    Last issue we had a cliffhanger and this one is no different. Wolverine is taking the All-New X-Men (minus Angel) out in a Blackbird when Captain America has the Uncanny Avengers knock it out of the sky. It should be interesting to see how Havoc responds to his now much younger brother in this situation. I wonder if this is going to lead into an Uncanny Avengers mini-crossover similar to the one we had just seen with Uncanny X-Men? While *I* love how they are currently tying the universe together I feel this could be slightly annoying to anyone not currently buying the majority of the Avengers and X-Titles that are being sold.

    Comic Booked - Nick Furious May 6, 2013

    This issue touched upon all sorts of things. The Uncanny Avengers are now after the X-Men for what happened at Stark Resiliant. Angel likes who Scott Summers grows up to be. The original X-Men have lost the first member, they can no longer return with just four. Brian ensures he touches base with every character on the team, except Rachel who hasn't been seen or heard from since issue one or two. I want to know her thoughts on Young Cyclops and Young Jean Grey. That is her family for crying out loud. Her mother and father! As Uncanny X-Men continues to straddle the line between good and average, All-New X-Men continues to make each issue hit where it counts. This issue was full of talking. Nothing else really happened. And it sets the bar for another remarkable issue by Bendis and his team. All-New X-Men is the perfect blend of character, story, and commentary. It doesn't look to be changing anytime soon.

    Blue Raven Comics - Ryan Utterback May 14, 2013

    The writing and art are both solid, and the story transitions well from the conflict with Cyclops to the new (and very surprising) challenge that faces the X-Men. If you are a fan of X-Men and you aren't reading this title, well, then I just don't know what the heck you're doing. Do yourself a favor and pick it up! Read Full Review

    X-Man's Comic Blog - Jason Todd May 5, 2013

    I don't understand why this issue came out after we already knew who was going to join Cyclops' team. It just seemed odd that It was built to be such a shocker when we've known for like two issues if you read Uncanny X-Men. I'm sure everyone doesn't... but yeah. That aside, I enjoyed this issue. I loved seeing Emma have the Cuckoos take Jean down a peg, it was a great moment for Emma and Jean needed it the way she was using her powers to make Warren do whatever she said Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jennifer Cheng May 3, 2013

    The last page of "All New X-Men" #11 promises another round of heated verbal and physical arguments between rival superteams. On one hand, I'm looking forward to this match-up, especially because Bendis excels in scenes where the original X-Men interact with modern-day mutants, but on the other hand, I'm starting to worry about the ratio of character mash-ups to actual plot developments for a title that has been out for half a year now. Bendis and Immonen's "All New X-Men" remains a fun read for its energy and character interactions, but beyond its initial twist, the plotting hasn't been as strong. Read Full Review

    Imagination Centre - John McCubbin Sep 5, 2013

    This was another slow issue, and although slightly better than the previous issue, the overall story seems do be going at a crawl. The revelation of the younger X-Man to join Cyclops' team was interesting, but people who read Uncanny X-Men will already know. There were also some interesting things in this issue, and the progress of Mystique's plot is shaping up nicely, and the shocking ending has me excited for the next issue. I'd still recommend this, especially if you've been getting the series so far, as it was still interesting, and the series as a whole has been fantastic, but if you're a new reader I'd recommend waiting till next issue now.

    Geeks Unleashed - Chris Romero May 3, 2013

    Writer Brian Michael Bendis' All New X-Men had a strong start, but now 11issues into the storyline featuring the old and present X-Men is starting to run its course, leaving little to anticipate and capture our attention. Issue #11 tries to hook us with the surprise of which original X-Man chooses to join Cyclops' crew, but we've already seen that Angel made this decision in the pages of Uncanny X-Men. Hence, the book leaves little to the imagination; it's like having your surprise birthday party ruined by because your best friend who organized the party accidentally included you on the invitation email.

    The cliffhanger from the last issue plays out exactly as expected, but it's satisfying and leads to a great confrontation. The ending sets up what appears to be another tense meeting. Overall another great issue.

    Rob D Williams May 5, 2013

    Bendis writes another strong installment of the brilliant All-New X-Men series, yet this issue isn't the best by far. With relatively iffy artwork by Immonen, this issue doesn't look as good as it has or indeed should. Immonen excels at the Jean-Kitty conversation though, which is a fantastic scene and is the highlight of the book, and one of the highlights of the series so far. Other scenes are a bit off though- do we really need to see another Mystique robbery? A solid issue, but by no means the best.
