    Yeah but the entire race wasn't killed off by one mutant, man. They survived and obviously rebuilt.

    It seems to be off to a good start.
    1) There's no excuse for laziness, but I'm working on it!
    2) I will live forever or die trying
    3) It's only funny until somebody gets hurt...............then it's hilarious

    It is off to a good start. Although I'm a bit leery about the prospect of a 12 issue arc. Hopefully Brubaker will maintain quality throughout the whole thing and it won't get old.

    Nice to see a guy like Warpath getting a chance to shine as a member of an X-Men team.

    I thought this was a good (not great) introduction for Brubaker. I can't say it's a great jumping on point because there are plot points from the recent X-Men "Blood of Apocalypse" (talkback) arc and the X-Men: Deadly Genesis (talkback) mini-series and other little references to other stories. It is a good jumping on point to get back on the books but I don't know if new readers could jump on here clean.

    Brubaker did do an excellent job on the characterization though and I can see Warpath becoming a huge character despite the somewhat lame name. It is an interesting choice for a team and I like that for the first time in ages the main team members on the X-Men books are so vastly different from each other. I also like that Brubaker is setting out to make his group definite outlaws by getting past the Sentinel O.N.E. group outside the mansion and also stealing a shuttle.

    I am worried that given that this is a 12 issue storyline it will be stretched out way to long. I'm not huge on X-Men's space adventures but I hope this is different. And once again I don't see the big deal surrounding Rachel Grey. I find her to be one of the most useless X-Men characters (her and Lorna who's in this book too) and Brubaker is going to have to work hard to make me like them. But hopefully he can. I enjoyed this issue and he's going to have me reading for at least the next two parts. It's off to a good start.

    so whats the lineup for this new team because so far, Im not seeing anyone that would interest me in jumping back onto X-men. I hate to rant or whatevere, but for the past maybe 5 years or so, I have been slowly slipping away from marvel. The x-men wher the last thing decent about them, but it just seems that lately even they can be wishy washy with mix matched teams and such.
    your Super Charged Hero!

    The team is Xavier, Warpath, Havok, Polaris, Nightcrawler, and Marvel Girl. I think thats everyone.

    Mmm good beggining I liked Havok as the leader of a team (And that was like all the things I liked about his team and stories) I guess that means they won't be present in the civil war. Thanks god Wolvie's not with them I can imagine it. not just only hunting Nitro and Nuke at the same time and fighting the civil war and with the astonishing X-men but also in the deep space with the other team. and why not with Xcalibur and as the fifth FF (Sorry for the guys who think this is bashing Wolverine it's just well it's good to know that the Wolvie series make some sense at least)
    It's a long arc, one year with9out this guys in the earth I'm gonna miss them. But hey I'm also gonna miss Psylocke and no complaining about that.
    We come from a bad place.
