So, wow. Really cool. I didn't read all the extra stuff at the back, I was too itchy to get onto the second collection...

Alright, part one is Tomorrow People, which is such a great story because I love Magneto against Professor X. (I saw First Class prior to reading this, so I was primed for good chemistry, and even though they only meet face to face for a short time, you know these guys have history. It's different than the movies, but they're killer, for sure.)

Next part is Return to Weapon X, which was a source of conflict for me, sympathy-wise! I'm an Iron Man fan, and having SHIELD, apparently, anti-mutants was tearing me apart. But ah, Colonel Fury came through for me in the end. Good story, not as strong as Tomorrow People. The ending, I knew it was coming because by accident spoiled some stuff when I skimmed through Vol 2 of the Ultimates, but yanno. Still. I think Jean Grey is my favorite character.

A note to fans of the trilogy and somewhat reboot of a prequel, (I mean, either that or we can pretty, pretty please take Wolverine: Origins out of the canon) Rogue is, I mean, what? What is her story? I really would like to find out what she thinks she is doing. Mostly because you really connect with her in the first movie. Also, I'm a mystique fan from the movies, she needs a cameo soon. Wolverine fans will most likely be delighted with the harder-to-sympathize-with assassin who's background is much more complex in these comics, yay! All in all, you've just got to accept they're basically the same people, just different events have defined them because it's the Alternate Universe. Groovy?
