Whoa! There's a girl with no eyes in this!!! Other than that...not much worth reading here! These characters are flat and I don't seem to want to care about them. The story is a mess and hard to follow! The Young X-Men end up mixing it up with the New Mutants (but they're actually the New Brotherhood of Evil?) in a simulation and then things get really confusing! This starts at Young X-Men #1 but it feels like we missed something and I hate when that happens. Apparently I missed a huge story arc ...more

Cyclops brings together the remnant of the New X-Men in an all-new (well, newly-branded to fit in line with the Young Avengers) team that goes after the original New Mutants, who now are living in the Hellfire Club, for some reason. It's a fairly basic new-team plot with a decent twist ending. Marc Guggenheim brings in his own new mutant, Ink, who has Tatooed Man-like powers and uses mildly annoying slang, but is interesting enough. The highlight is definitely Yanick Paquette's art. His style is ...more

The X-men are gone. Cyclops recruits some young mutants to take on the Hellfire Club. The Club is full of old x-men, and to make matters worse, Blindfold has foreseen someone dying. This is a good introductory volume to a new team. It's interesting to see how dangerous Dust really is. I particularly liked the new character, Ink's powers. A good read.

This volume falls a little flat when compared to other X-titles. The best thing about this short-lived series is Marvel's attempt to find a new home for the "New X-Men." Those characters were really coming into their own, but after Messiah Complex, Yost and Kyle went to X-Force and took some characters with them. The rest fell by the wayside. Rockslide, Dust, and Blindfold are all good characters, so it's nice to see them at the forefront of a book. It's unfortunate, however, that the story is p ...more

Recommended to Feather by: Que estaba a mano
Supongo que no es un comic malo de por sí, pero huele tanto a "hagámosnos los todo cambia", y me consta que nada cambia un comino, que no llega a ser lo que entiendo por "buen Cómic". A su favor tiene algunos de los diálogos y el dibujo de Paquette, que de todos modos no estaba tan afilado como en su Batman Inc. posterior. También le baja puntaje que el capítulo final de la saga esté en el tomo siguiente, que ni sé si leeré. En resumen: un comic esquivable como esta misma review.
Pretty simple story, and predictable. Rockslide, Dust and Blindfold are joined by some new mutants. They're sent by Cyclops after the original New Mutants. One reason is Sunspot is part a of the hellfire club. ( I Think from an X-Treme X-men story). Donald Pierce is the main villain.

A confusing premise and uneven pacing keep this book from excelling. It's still got OK characters and interesting conflict.
