ALL NEW X-MEN #1
(W) Brian Michael Bendis (A) Stuart Immonen
It's a blast from the past as the original five students of Professor X - Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Iceman, Angel and Beast - are plucked from the past and brought to the present. But what they find, the state that their future selves are in and the state of Xavier's dream, is far from the future they dreamed of. And how will the X-Men of the present deal with their past coming crashing forward?
Professor Xavier's first class of mutants is ripped from the idealized optimistic past and thrust into our present. How are these young, fresh, bright-eyed kids going to fit into their own dark, dystopian future? It's like "Days of Future Past" as seen from the other side of the timeline. I'm not much of a Marvel reader, but this is the one that has piqued my interest. I look forward to many uncanny moments in this series: Cyclops discovering that he has become Public Enemy #1; Brutish, but human Beast coming face-to-face with Furry, Blue Beast; Frosty the Snowman meeting a much colder Iceman. This series might actually bring me back into the X-Men fold. RECOMMENDED BY HOWARD!
