  • X-Men Vol 4 #1 – Because you demanded it! The X-Women finally get their own book, from critically acclaimed superstars Brian Wood (X-MEN, ULTIMATE X-MEN, DMZ, The Massive) and Olivier Coipel (AVX, HOUSE OF M, THOR)! An old enemy shows up at the X-Men’s door, seeking asylum from an ancient evil come back to earth. Meanwhile, Jubilee has come home, and she’s brought with her an orphaned baby who might hold the key to the earth’s survival…or its destruction. Against a backdrop of what seems like an alien invasion and an eons-spanning war between brother and sister, Storm steps up and puts together a team to protect the child and stop a new threat that could destroy all life on earth!
    • To start with after you get past the cover you completely forget about this being a all woman team of X-Men. Its probably because these are some of my favorite characters in general, with the exception of Rachel Summers who I appreciate more because of her story in the Avengers Vs. X-Men event.  Each member of the team brings a different power and viewpoint to the team which is actually what you want out of a X-Men team.  The story feels like the first act of a alien invasion movie and has some great moments with Rogue and Kitty Pryde.  One panel showing Kitty’s eyes as she phases through a was particularly impressive because it perfectly capture every other look she gave during Joss Whedon and John Cassady run on Astonishing X-Men.  Male or female this is a great X-Men book to get started on whether you haven’t read one before or giving them another try like myself who was sick of how much the X-Men universe has splinter and been hard to follow.
