Mike Carey (ULTIMATE FANTASTIC FOUR) and Chris Bachalo (UNCANNY X-MEN) take over the X-Men, or at least what's left of them! As old threats are still having their effects, new, more deadly threats emerge from the unlikeliest of places. Threats that spell doom for the X-Men. Plus, what could possibly strike terror into the heart of...Sabretooth!? And who are The Children? This is the book you've been waiting for! A perfect starting point for any new reader!

    X-Men #189 was a much better issue than Carey's debut issue. While I'm not crazy about Bachalo's artwork, it doesn't turn me off from the title. Carey serves up a much more interesting and well paced issue. Story wise, this is the best that X-Men has been in quite some time. This is definitely a good jumping on point for new readers.

    As an epilogue, I would like to comment on the Masked Marvel backup story, since one of the last lines in it was, Okay, so well do the best backups ever and then the fansll demand to see more Masked Marvel stories! Well, after this one, I am not a fan and certainly will not demand to see more of this. Aside from the shots of Masked Marvel himself, the art was just sort of there, not adding to the story or characters at all. Likewise, the colors were just a step above black and white. I like the storyline of a comic book writer actually being his character, and the dialogue was sometimes funny, definitely campy which I cant decide if I like or not. Deadpool cracks jokes at comics in the same way that this one does, only much funnier. If the art were better, I might pick up a full issue, but really I think it wouldnt fit in the Marvel U since its too much like an Indy comic and makes the same vein of jokes as Deadpool.
