A Quick Look

I enjoy this series and while the last few issues haven’t been great, I’m sad to hear the title is getting the ax from Marvel. This comic is a light, fun read and Jeff Parker’s writing is witty, humorous, and befitting the characters. To quote Iceman:

“It’s bad enough when women drivers won’t admit their badness, but the crazy hair is too much!”

I love it.

While this title makes the original X-Men more identifiable to a modern audience by putting them in a present day setting, the style of story telling remains true to the original stories from the 60’s; The villain is met within the first few pages, the X-Men work together as a team to defeat them, and everything is hunky dory at the end. Corny? Absolutely. Entertaining? Even more so. There is a panel in this issue where Professor Xavier is stumped while trying to solve a Rubik’s Cube, which tickled my funny bone. To boot, these issues are one of the few (if not only) places Jean Grey appears in the pages of a comic book.
