    The one thing "New Mutants Forever" #1 doesn't seem to even try to do is ease in new readers, but I suppose they're not the target audience in the slightest. Don't remember what happened to the other members? Too bad. (I do like to think the Hellfire Club wouldn't have drawn big red Xs over their faces, though.) Not entirely sure why they're all upset? No time for more than the briefest of answers. This is a mini-series aimed squarely at people who remember reading "New Mutants" #54, after all. And for that audience? I think it's doing just fine.
