    Generation Hope continues to remind me what it is I like about the X-Books when they're done right. With its focus on a younger team of recently powered mutants, it allows for an X-Men story that gets back to its roots of teenagers not only trying to defend themselves against threats to mutantkind, but also dealing with the struggles of growing up. Issue 12 manages to blend those two things perfectly to offer a book that gets to the heart of what X-Men stories are, even in the midst of the X-Team shake-up that is Schism. Read Full Review

    As far as "Generation Hope" goes, this issue ably demonstrates the potential of the characters beyond the book's current remit, and acts more as a lead-in to a new run than a full stop on its current one. Subplots are reprised, rather than completed. Whether the book is being supported by fans of Gillen or fans of the characters remains to be seen, but there's certainly no shortage of stories for Asmus to continue when he takes over. It's sad that Gillen is leaving the series, but there's no doubt that he's leaving with the title primed to persist beyond his presence. Read Full Review
