Back to Basics. We need this in the X-Men. Seeing a school, students, teenager problems, people trying to kill them. Not much happened, maybe no the greatest story, yet it is in the right place. What i expect and love to see in an X-Men Book (after years of decay). Looking forward for more of this GenX.

There's so much wrong about this. I know it's not the writter's fault but Marvel policies. Nevertheless, it's just wrong. No new ideas. Nothing interesting to see here. 1 ) Extintion Again: but this time, not a well done. It's not just coming back to the same idea, it's also doing it worst. No justification. Not interesting to read. Not interesting to see how the caracters react to the more

I regretted buying this as soon as I began to read it. It's the same old tired stuff which has been served up a thousand times before. No real invention. No sense of a real beginning, just another team book which will have a short run before cynically starting again with another issue #1. Some of the glowing reviews this comic has received are deeply suspect.
