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.

The arc began with a bold new direction and a really original story but this issue is weaker than last part. For me, Laura's characterization is sometimes rather failed. Also, the plot is weak and too simple: a new character arrives and arranges everything. However, I quite enjoy how Tom Taylor uses plenty of famous characters. Last issue made me regain faith in the series but I still don't know i more

An interesting and odd comic that features characters that I think few have thought about in a while. I like the connection that it has to New Gods, while also being a comic that will begin to explore and illuminate a character that has not had much exposure.

Finally an issue of blue I liked! This time we see the X-Men up against their old rivals the sentinels but it provided such a refreshing twist I enjoyed it. The fight scenes are clean and something to look at thanks to the art of Molina, Height and Milla. While Bunn's story was actually very captivating.

This issue, again, was very disappointing. Art is not the greatest and Tynion spends more time hinting at future storylines than the current arc. The ending of this arc felt very sudden.

Phil Noto is out as artist and I was surprised that I didn't miss him. Poe still looks as good as ever. Its nice to see General Leia getting a little spotlight in what feels like a bit of a tribute to Carrie Fisher and finally we get some Captain Phasma after months of teasing. I hope to see more of her in this book because she's impressive.

I'm okay with how silly these first-class-from-the-past characters feels. But this comic just felt like lazy writing, specially with the way the phoenix force was introduced here. Besides, I like that this Jean Grey is not the phoenix, and I think they should stick to that a little bit longer.
