Joss Whedon has very clear archetypes he loves to use, and Astonishing X-Men is no exception. Kitty Pride takes the place of the kickass young woman and the main villain looks like something you would have seen rampaging the streets of Sunnydale. It was a thoroughly enjoyable read, though I will say I was a little lost, having not read the preceding storyline. He did an excellent job of dialog, as usual, he was able to use his witty jokes, but in the lexicon of the characters. Wolverine is making a Joss joke for sure, but he's delivering it like Wolverine would.
