My review will only cover the title story, because the second arc is mysteriously missing from Marvel Unlimited. Usually I read the reviews of something on Goodreads before picking up a book, but this time I didn't which led to interesting results. The first issue or so got me excited for the new story. I like when the X-Men is about the school and there were enough new characters that weren't in Morrison's New X-Men that I enjoyed getting caught up on the roster.

The school takes centre stage in this book, with the new way of running things upsetting people. Xorn is back! And the school is attacked. A very good and emotionally moving storyline.

I actually buy good guy Juggernaut. Iceman seems rather out of character. Fighting random Chinese team seemed completely unnecessary. Polaris' miracle of magnetism is nice.
