    I ve been wanting to read X Men since forever, and I can t seem to remember who recommended this to me It was either Jeff or some other non goodreads friend of mine I m really glad he recommended it, because this was a good read.Basically Beast wanted to change things for the better and pulled the original X Men from the past to try and influence the current Scott Would it work out like he wanted to Read and find out.What I didn t like or really wanted to happen was to readof Magneto a I ve been wanting to read X Men since forever, and I can t seem to remember who recommended this to me It was either Jeff or some other non goodreads friend of mine I m really glad he recommended it, because this was a good read.Basically Beast wanted to change things for the better and pulled the original X Men from the past to try and influence the current Scott Would it work out like he wanted to Read and find out.What I didn t like or really wanted to happen was to readof Magneto and Wolverine I know Wolverine is not even on the cover, but he s basically X Men for me This being my first legit X Men graphic novel comic in years, I was really hoping to readof him I remember reading a lot of single issues of the original X Men run when I was a child, but I can t remember anything from them at all aside from Wolverine and Cyclops were both my favorites Aside from that though, I had no problems with this graphic novel The artwork was really likable and the plot was good too 4 5 stars Really good considering this is my first X Men read in years Btw if you hate cliffhangers then you ll probably hate this shit for quite a while I need to read volume 2 asap Highly recommended

    3.5 starsI didn t hate this at all That sounds silly, but when I realized that this one was about bringing the original X Men from the past into the future, I was pretty sure I would not love this title.And the cover looks lame.In fact, I thought I had accidentally picked up one of the books that are marketed toward kids Yes, I ve done that beforeSo Scott has gone off the chain, and the remaining the X Men can t agree on how to handle him.If they openly fight him, they might start a Mutant 3.5 starsI didn t hate this at all That sounds silly, but when I realized that this one was about bringing the original X Men from the past into the future, I was pretty sure I would not love this title.And the cover looks lame.In fact, I thought I had accidentally picked up one of the books that are marketed toward kids Yes, I ve done that beforeSo Scott has gone off the chain, and the remaining the X Men can t agree on how to handle him.If they openly fight him, they might start a Mutant Civil War, and if they do nothing, then everything Charles worked for goes down the drain So.Beast is undergoing yet another mutant transformation thing, and he knows that this one is going to kill him He s kept it to himself, but the thought of leaving this mess when dies is weighing heavily one him.Then Bobby says something along the lines of, If the old Scott could only see himself now Hmmm It triggers a crazy idea to start rattling around in Beast s head He decides maybe a Hail Mary play is their only chance So he goes back in time and pulls the young Scott, Jean, Bobby, Angel, and himself out of their timeline, and into his, in the high hopes that somehow it will make a difference.I thought it would be goofy, but it turned out to be pretty interesting I m looking forward to what s coming next in this title

    Sometimes it seems like the X Men dotime traveling than Doctor Who.Following the Avengers vs X Men crossover, Cyclops has gone a little kooky He s now working with Magneto and Emma Frost to openly recruit new mutants while attacking humanity The current X Men fear that directly confronting him could kick off a mutant civil war so Hank McCoy decides that the best way to stop Cyclops is to let the young Scott Summers get a look at what he becomes Hank takes a jaunt into the past where he Sometimes it seems like the X Men dotime traveling than Doctor Who.Following the Avengers vs X Men crossover, Cyclops has gone a little kooky He s now working with Magneto and Emma Frost to openly recruit new mutants while attacking humanity The current X Men fear that directly confronting him could kick off a mutant civil war so Hank McCoy decides that the best way to stop Cyclops is to let the young Scott Summers get a look at what he becomes Hank takes a jaunt into the past where he recruits the original team of X Men, including his own younger non furry self, to come back to the future.I had a lot of doubts about this concept, not the least of which was making evenof a hash of what remains of the X Men s timeline as well as giving us yet another live version of Jean Grey to kill off someday However, I gotta admit that Bendis did a very good job with this The dialogue doesn t rely as much on humor as he usually does Instead, he sets up a lot of intriguing things with the young X Men being pretty much horrified at the way things have turned out for all of them.I wasn t sure how this works as a time travel story either If the original X Men are in the present seeing their future, wouldn t that mean that it s going to change They get around this for now with the explanation that when they return to the past that Professor X will certainly read their minds, know what happened, and then wipe the memories from them But no one seems concerned about Xavier knowing the future after that Plus, if one of the team gets killed in the present wouldn t that wipe the current version out of existence This is a point that should come upconsidering that Wolverine very vocally considers the idea that killing young Scott would save them all a lot of grief later.But I was able to set that aside for theintriguing questions that Bendis and company are playing with here, the ideas of what someone would think of themselves and their fate if they could see into the future as well as considering what warnings a person might offer to a younger version of themselves

    The X Men comics were my favorites when I was younger, and I wanted to jump back into reading them with acontemporary story The X Men have been around for a while, embedded in our zeitgeist with many different iterations, and sometimes it feels like they ve told every story they could Not only that but one big critique that many people have is that the universe has gotten too big, with too many characters, and it can get a bit overwhelming That s why I think that this story arc in the d The X Men comics were my favorites when I was younger, and I wanted to jump back into reading them with acontemporary story The X Men have been around for a while, embedded in our zeitgeist with many different iterations, and sometimes it feels like they ve told every story they could Not only that but one big critique that many people have is that the universe has gotten too big, with too many characters, and it can get a bit overwhelming That s why I think that this story arc in the debut volume of All New X Men is so cool Bendis not only was able to find a fresh, clever idea, but with this idea, he was able to bring the focus back to the basics a core, familiar group of mutants, the original five Because the X Men can t figure out how to handle Cyclops, who recently broke bad and is now modeling himself as a mutant revolutionary with Magneto and the White Queen at his side, Beast has the dumbass genius idea to go back in time, gather up the original five teenage students of Xavier Cyclops, Jean Grey, Iceman, Angel, and Beast himself , and bring them back to the future to see if they can talk some sense into mean Cyclops and show him how far he s fallen What could possibly go wrong So this first volume isn t exactly jam packed with mutant action but focuseson fleshing out the cool concept and it s ramifications How would the act of bringing the past versions of the X men to this time affect the time space continuum How would the younger versions feel with seeing what their future lives entail How would today s Cyclops react after seeing a younger version of himself and Jean Grey, the wife he s lost And speaking of the young Jean Grey, she s the real star of this show who provides the book s heart She begins to develop her telepathic powers and it s not the easiest thing, especially under the circumstances I m excited to see what happens next, and I think it would be awesome if Bendis used this time travel incident and tied it into established X canon For example, it would be so interesting if, by going into the future and developing her abilities there, that s the way that the Phoenix Force was initially able to tap into Jean Grey, jump starting the popular Phoenix Saga So many possibilities

    The X Men has becomeinteresting in the aftermath of Avengers Versus X Men AVX , but the new X Men main writer isn t content with the already fertile soil for stories He throws a substantial wrench into the works by bringing back the original teenage X Men straight from the pages of the Silver Age X Men stories by Stan Lee and Kirby There will a price to pay for this gross abuse of space time but this new direction has already been in the works since he relaunched Avengers after Siege S The X Men has becomeinteresting in the aftermath of Avengers Versus X Men AVX , but the new X Men main writer isn t content with the already fertile soil for stories He throws a substantial wrench into the works by bringing back the original teenage X Men straight from the pages of the Silver Age X Men stories by Stan Lee and Kirby There will a price to pay for this gross abuse of space time but this new direction has already been in the works since he relaunched Avengers after Siege Still, it is good to see Jean Grey back in an ongoing series again.Bendis has done excellent work with a teenage cast before, a prime example would be his Ultimate Spider Man work, so I can see why he would bring in the original X Men Initially the five were brought back by a dying Beast to be the ghosts of Christmas past to Cyclops, to remind him of his heinous crime of murdering Charles Xavier Now, the original five are here to stay to prevent a mutant civil war and to restore Xavier s dream.The art is as excellent as any of the franchise s storied past Stuart Immonen is producing the best art of his career and colorist Marte Gracia is making a name for himself with his vibrant coloring.I read this collection digitally in Comixology and I m glad Marvel included the bonus material from the hardcover This feature was missing from prior digital print combo releases and I m glad Marvel learned from that mistake I would have wanted to see all the variant covers included with the AVX digital collection, but I m happy that this digital version has all the covers from the first five issues.This is a great jump on point for anyone intrigued by the storied history of the X Men Bringing the original X Men to the present means that new history is being written and now would be the best time to be part of it Whether digital or print, this is the book to help you start on your X Men journey Originally reviewed on The Raving Asgardian, my personal blog on comics and its myriad forms.

    This is everything I ever wanted in an X Men story that I never thought I needed and everything I ever needed that I never thought I wanted Brian Michael Bendis first volume collection of All New

idea of bringing back the original first class of the X Men from Stan Lee s run in the sixties compos This is everything I ever wanted in an X Men story that I never thought I needed and everything I ever needed that I never thought I wanted Brian Michael Bendis first volume collection of All New X Men for the current Marvel Now initiative is, simply put, A MAH ZING Illustrated by Stuart Immonen, the first five issues comprised in this collection were endlessly entertaining and gripping.The idea of bringing back the original first class of the X Men from Stan Lee s run in the sixties composed of Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Beast, Angel and Iceman by having them time travel to the future or the present Marvel timeline where things are less than idyllic some may say a colossal clusterfuck , is a bold storytelling strategy It could have easily been a failure But writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Stuart Immonen were not intimidated by this daunting task at all The first debut issue opens with Hank McCoy s journal entry where he admits that he is once again going through the next stage of his beast mutation which is all kinds of hellish pain and he stresses that he may not survive this one at all In the aftermath of the Phoenix Force dispersing in the cosmos which signaled the rebirth of the mutant gene, several unsuspecting youngsters discover their powers which, as we all know, get mostly triggered by stressful situations and were being hunted down by government factions to contain them Recent fugitive and no longer anyone s favorite person, Cyclops, started recruiting said mutants to join his revolution By his side were his on again, off again paramour and partner Emma Frost, Magneto and Magik The X Men were bothered by the escalation of Scott s brutal ways especially Beast who may or may not die during the new stage of his physical mutation Desperate, he traveled back in time to forewarn and beg the original core five members of the X Men to come with him to stop Scott from unwittingly committing what he deems is a mutant apocalypse I consider myself a fairly loyal Cyclops fan It s a love hate relationship at the beginning considering his archetypal role in the X Men as a whole and his often closed off personality While he may inherently be a decent and noble person with heroic motivations the golden boy to be exact he is often alienating because he tends to be guarded even around people he is supposed to trust It s only when he s with Jean and later on, Emma that we see thesensitive and human side of Scott Summers, and, naturally, those are the stories where I enjoy reading him most In contrast, Wolverine Logan or James Howlett may be of a pseudo anarchist black sheep but his outsider status even among other outsiders heralded him as a quick fan favorite because everyone roots for and sympathizes with the moody guy who may talk back against authority and challenge the one in charge Scott, mostly but is also ultimately the one you can depend on because once you earn his loyalty, he will go to hell to cover your ass It s only an intriguing progression then to see him become the headmaster for the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning alongside Ororo and Kitty Pryde Unlike Scott who readily accepts the leadership role from the get go, Logan has had a complicated avoidance issue about it but has always had the potential and providence to lead and teach But this is about Scott and we see that all the grooming from Charles Xavier all those years of expectations and preparation, as well as the betrayals and trials of trust he experienced with said father figure, has all led to this.He has now become the ultimate outsider trying to forge a path that goes against everything he used to believe and stand for He even has freaking Erik Lehnsherr Magneto on his side He never would have worked with the guy, let alone form an alliance with him But these are desperate times and although his methods have drastically changed, Scott still wanted to serve and protect his own mutant species even if it meant murdering humans along the way So, I guess it makes sense that Magneto signed up and allowed Scott to take the reigns The most baffling thing about this, though, is Scott doesn t really hate humans unlike Magneto Scott has become completely apathetic of humans unlike when he was young aTnd hopeful and wanted to live in peaceful co existence with humanity Now he commits atrocities with human casualties as if he was merely stepping on an insect that happens to be on the pavement where is he walking So listen up This is my most favorite Marvel Now X Men title to date, and I don t think that s ever going to change especially after finishing this installment As I ve said before, the Original Core Five OCF from Stan Lee s sixties era became endeared to me thanks to Jeff Parker s X Men First Class which I just ate up with as many servings as possible Now it looks like the same thing is going to happen again with All New X Men The most compelling thing about the premise of this story is the timey wimey aspect of it The idea of bringing back the old and traditional fivesome to the present world so they can see how the dream they wanted to achieve as mutant pacifists was left utterly in pieces, all thanks to no other than a radically changed Scott Summers, would have been silly on paper at first but Bendis and Immonen created something worth the reading experience This series, I think, is a great callback to the classics while still maintaining the integrity of the evolution of the new blood Simply put, IT IS UNDENIABLYOne of my favorite moments came in the fifth issue with Jean Grey After seeing and feeling for herself the chain of events that will happen after and during her death, rebirth, Dark Phoenix struggle, death again and resurrection again then final death yup, she felt ALL of these deaths in one single telepathic look into Beast s memories and it was devastating , Jean made a decisive motion to stick around and fix what was broken They took it to a vote with Scott immediately backing up Jean, claiming that if they decide, they should do it unanimously Only Warren was opposed to it Afterwards, young Scott tried to talk to Jean but was cruelly brushed off in the last scene of this issue that really broke my heart I don t know what s going on in Jeanie s mind but I theorized that after seeing the man her first love became, it was a rude awakening for her Jean used to be crushing so hard on Scott back when they were young, and she never doubted him, almost blindly believes in the goodness he has shown time and time again when they are together Upon her death, the man she loved and admired became the things he himself fought hard against and this failure that is about to come is unforgivable for her This may seem harsh and narrow minded because the Scott who is with her now is still the idealistic dreamer who does want to stop his future self from becoming evil but Jean s decision to distance herself from him was understandable She can t be around the boy she loves and still stay objective with her number one priority which is to take back the dreams of Xavier the man she loved in the future has so utterly ruined In a nutshell, Brian Michael Bendis All New X Men has started out strong for this volume and is one of the most phenomenal X Men titles released from the Marvel Now roster and you should be reading this masterpiece in the making by now.RECOMMENDED 9 10DO READ MY REVIEWS AT

    I just don t care for the premise of this book The idea of bringing the teenage original X Men forward in time just doesn t appeal to me in the slightest This may have something to do with the fact that I m not terribly interested in any of the original X Men, not in their teenage states Cyclops just got interesting five minutes ago, after all So this just isn t the book for me, and I m not surprised that I didn t really enjoy it.But I do find myself fascinated by the tension between Cyclops I just don t care for the premise of this book The idea of bringing the teenage original X Men forward in time just doesn t appeal to me in the slightest This may have something to do with the fact that I m not terribly interested in any of the original X Men, not in their teenage states Cyclops just got interesting five minutes ago, after all So this just isn t the book for me, and I m not surprised that I didn t really enjoy it.But I do find myself fascinated by the tension between Cyclops and the X Men he left behind This could go in really interesting ways, outside the pages of this book What made Magneto such a compelling character to me was that I always felt like he had a point, and that he and Xavier were not nearly as far apart in ideology as it seemed at first Putting Cyclops in the Magneto role brings the two sides even closer together There s a scene, fairly early in the book, where Cyclops breaks a mutant out of prison Why was he in prison Because he healed an injured friend I had the distinct feeling that the only reason that the Wolverine X Men faction disapproved is because Cyclops got there first.That, for me, isn t a problem in the book I think it s fantastic I like that the answers aren t easy, and that I can sympathize with both sides, to an extent Likewise, I don t mind that there s a huge variation in how characters viewed Cyclops under the influence of the Phoenix Force Was he in control or possessed How much blame should he take for his actions It seems like almost every character has a slightly different opinion, and I imagine that holds true for the readers, as well And I think it sinteresting than simply saying that Scott was was not entirely responsible for what he did while Phoenix, full stop But the teenage time travelers Not for me Sorry I look forward to seeing some of the tensions that I saw in this book worked with in other places, but not here, not for me

    Honestly, I can find no fault here The writing is superb, the artwork is gorgeous, and the characters are fleshing off the pages I ve finally found some X Men I can burn through like I was eight years old.

    I read this out of order, having read Vol 2 first, but catching up wasn t too hard The side plots do introduce the three new mutants I didn t care about in Volume 2 This is where Marvel s new split between the All New X Men X Men, original label and the Uncanny X Men modern team begins It s a ridiculous high concept premise, in which the Beast goes back in time and brings back the teenage versions of himself and his buddies to confront today s Scott Summers Cyclops and hopefully shame hi I read this out of order, having read Vol 2 first, but catching up wasn t too hard The side plots do introduce the three new mutants I didn t care about in Volume 2 This is where Marvel s new split between the All New X Men X Men, original label and the Uncanny X Men modern team begins It s a ridiculous high concept premise, in which the Beast goes back in time and brings back the teenage versions of himself and his buddies to confront today s Scott Summers Cyclops and hopefully shame him into being not so crazy.Those comic book super geniuses They can build time travel machines, armies of self aware robots, floating antigravity cities, and genetically engineered superpowered clones, but they sure come up with stupid ideas.That said, from a publishing perspective, it s a great move on Marvel s part The All New X Men 1960s era Cyclops, Beast, Marvel Girl, Iceman, and Angel become the fresh, fun superhero team that requires less investment in the line s history, while the Uncanny X Men can go on being their grimdark selves with all that historical baggage.So this volume comprised the first five issues Beast goes back and grabs his friends, Jean Grey gets prematurely awakened to her telepathic powers hello, Beast, that s what happens when you mess with time and space and of course completely freaks out when she finds out that in the future she dies and Scott turns into a psycho, and that men, including X Men, have really dirty thoughts around pretty teenage girls.Meanwhile, the modern day Cyclops, with Magneto and Magick, go bust Emma Frost the White Queen free from imprisonment from the federal government I mean, why do the Feds even bother trying to transport dangerous mutant supercriminals in heavily armed transports You might as well just start cutting the checks on life insurance policies.Very good, action packed volume with a lot of the drama you d expected from naive teenagers forced to face their grown up selves Artwork was pretty good, though young Hank McCoy does not look even remotely twelve years old Time travel issues are brushed aside, as they always are in comic books, but I notice they still never even bother to address the ethics of using telepathic powers to just erase memories or change people s minds when it s convenient It s kind of funny how J.K Rowling s fans have torn her apart for that bit in the Epiloge of Deathly Hallows where Ron uses a Confunding Charm on a Muggle during his driver s license test It s horrible It s unethical It s a gross violation of one s person And yet the X Men, including the sainted Charles Xavier, have been doing that shit forever without even blinking.Anyway, I really liked this alternate cover in the back of the volume, which for once actually made Jean Grey look like the scared, confused teenager she is
