    I'd like to think that I'm keeping an open mind, and that my general dislike of Grant Morrison's recent work on this title isn't merely a knee-jerk reaction to his revisionist approach to this book & it's cast. However, I've always held writers to a fairly simple rule when it comes to changing a title, and that is if they are going to mess about with something at least keep it interesting, and frankly this is where Grant Morrison's work is leaving me disappointed. I mean Scott confesses that he doesn't love Jean anymore, and Grant Morrison utterly fails to convey the importance of this announcement. It's almost like this book is a writing exercise where Grant Morrison can deliver half formed ideas, bizarre science concepts & whacked out theology, instead of a title that is looking to entertain its readers. I'll stick with it as Grant Morrison has shown himself a very talented writer, but I honestly don't think the X-Men are capturing his imagination. Read Full Review

    Hottie in white changes into a costume of red and cold. The costume seems to have some kind of significance, but again since there's no continuity, we can simply agree that the hottie formerly in white now becomes the hottie in red and gold. Geordi decides to cheat on his wife mentally. The hottie if we can take the advice of the man in the cowboy hat to heart will be extremely disappointed. End of story. Read Full Review
