Let's face it the art is really wonky. Pinna and Sobreiro made Jubes and Kitty look ancient while the others looked like they never aged a day. I really do like the introduction of all the characters. I only got confused with one minor character. I really thought she was Jean Grey for a second. Strain is writing a fun, action packed issue and I really do hope she keeps it up!.

I loved this first issue, it's so much better than the other new X-men comics. It's still silly, like the others, but now it really feels like it's supposed to be silly.

I love the last scene in this book. And the fact that they just drop her shows how serious these X-Men are. They are not Charles Xavier or Cyclops but a nice firm medium. The art of Syaf I really do enjoy it does fit the X-Men franchise pretty well. And Guggenheim made a firm statement by saying they are the X-Men and they are here to stay. Gold is correct adjective describing the series.

Another fairly fun book from this X-Men revival. Sure, the story is a bit familiar but that really doesn't bother me. Its this type of story where the X-Men really thrive and at this point I'm going to continue reading.
