This one is written by Chris Claremont and is actually pretty good. By this time (in 2004) Claremont had written several X-Men books on his return to the franchise. Most of them had been flops, but Marvel kept throwing him projects. Here he gives up most of his schmaltzy characterizations and conforms with what many other writers were doing at the time. Gone are his John Hughes-type speeches and overwrought narration.

Also this book is drawn well too. Alan Davis is in top form and Andy Parks doe

What I admire about this is that it sticks with the format of the old x-men comics--narration, reduced gore, characters loving to talk about their powers (anyone else tired of reading "healing factor" all the time? As a term, it barely makes sense, why do even the villains use it?)and a plot-centric storyline that can get weird fast. I'm not sure if all that holds up well against modern comics however, even if the art does. It's one thing to be reading classic x-men and accept the style as part ...more

The only really good thing about this book was that X-23 shows up for the first time. And she's awesome. But they find her and they have a really cool fight, and then they go off and do something else and don't mention her again.
Also, Emma and Rachel get into it, which was also pretty awesome.
So basically I liked those two fights, but wasn't really in to the actual plot of the trade.

This is not the beginning of the Uncanny X-men, and I regret jumping in because I can tell I missed so much. There is a Rachel Grey that must be explained somewhere else, and I would really like to know about her. This is an ok story, I enjoyed it...but I do not recommend taking the read whichever one you can find, out of order approach I have been taking...

Its a Wolverine clone - but she's a hot chick! What more does a fan-boy want? Not plot or well written dialogue surely. Oh weapon-x program, when will you stop forcing young, feral mutants to struggle with their humanity and the thin line that holds the inner-beast in check while tortured by inner-demons and memories they can't trust?

Better than the previous volume, mainly because of Laura. But Claremont's writing is still mediocre. The art's still good.

The Xmen versus the Hellfire club again. Also the debut of X23 in the comic. Could have been better.

Some good bonding between Rachel and Emma, but otherwise pretty forgettable.
