    It's entirely possible that, with this bit of homework out of the way, the remainder of this miniseries will be something enjoyable for fans of Claremont's X-Men voice, but this issue is a waste of everyone's time. Read Full Review

    A great start to this xtreme x-men run. Claremont is a genius and my personal all-time favorite writer so I was not surprised at all. I absolutely love the current Krakoa Era xmen books with the deep and complex storylines and to be honest I was a little worried this might be a bit to basic with over the top '90's style action with thin plots so it would be the complete opposite of the regular x-books. That isn't Claremont's style though and it shows as this is written beautifully to go along with absolutely stunning artwork. I'm really looking forward to the next issue

    You can only be so psyched about a flashback series which by its nature will not have consequences to the present canon. But, it's nice Kitty as Shadowcat in a more iconic form than the Captain Kate Pryde persona in a flagging Marauders series. Ogun as the big bad is a bit weak, but I think people give non-classic Claremont crap about introducing new villains that don't stick, so why not?

    I must be reading something different from everyone else. I was so excited for this book. I'm a big Chris Claremont fan and a fan of Storm. But while I was reading this, I couldn't believe it was Chris Claremont. The first scene, though interesting, was far too long. Then everyone showed up in Kitty's room. Which was weird. Then we get a recap that we didn't need since it could have been done in the first scene.

    This issue had some of the worst character designs I have ever seen. Kitty all in leather, Storm in some kind of red and black contraction with a lightning bolt shaved into her head, Rogue with tattoos. I don't know what's going on, but I'm dropping this title before more weird stuff happens.
