    Wow. Now that was a full issue. Lots of things get addressed and touched upon. We tie up a bunch of loose ends as well as open the door to the future of this team. Read Full Review

    A pretty promising start to a new direction for the New Mutants. Abnett and Lanning can do a lot of good stuff just showing alternate takes on the good X-stories. Hopefully they'll get to tell them and not be pulled into constant crossovers the way this series has been for the last year or so. Read Full Review

    "New Mutants" #25 feels like a shot in the arm for this comic. It's got a strong direction, the changes in the roster feel organic (and just as easily temporary changes if Abnett and Lanning wish), and the opening story addresses a problem that I figured would be abandoned for years to come. I'm on board the Abnett, Lanning, and Fernandez "New Mutants" train. Read Full Review

    After recovering from the events of Illyana and the teams recent adventures, Wolverine leads a team of X-Men comprised of everyone who has a particular emotional tie to Illyana on a mission to battle some Nimrod tech that is overrunning an automotive assembly plant.

While the team battles away, he and Illyana have a pretty serious discussion about her recent actions, which nearly destroyed all of reality. Dani Moonstar, current de facto team leader of the X-Men team comprised of veteran New Mutants, upon returning with her team from their Nimrod wrecking mission (whom Wolverine was supposed to be in command of, but whom got slightly overridden by Dani), fully expects her team to be disbanded after recent events. To her surprise, Scott has other plans. Dani is to keep her team together, and is placed in charge of clearing up all of the X-Mens unfinished business. Their first missio Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen May 11, 2011

    Leandro Fernandez is perhaps not the best choice for a series like this. Fernandez's work is generally steeped in shadow and reserved for darker books like Punisher MAX. Here, Fernandez's inks clash with the brighter colors and create a strangely conflicted visual tone. Some pages look markedly better than others, particularly those where Fernandez tones down his inks, so hopefully he and colorist Andres Mossa can achieve better synergy as the arc progresses.
