Well, if you forgot, All-New X-Men #1 blew me away like no Marvel has in a long time (until Indestructible Hulk #1 that is). Could the series really be this fantastic? I decided I needed to read the second issue to see if I could clarify my thoughts some more. Here’s what I liked.
1. The art is fantastic. Though I knew it would be, brilliant art always takes people aback. Or at least it always takes me aback.
2. The problem with Beast escalates, which is intriguing and slightly terrifying (even if New Avengers proves he’ll be fine).
3. The scene with Jean and Wolverine is surprisingly hilarious. And is the only bearable interpretation of Wolverine I’ve read in a while.

I struggled to find positive things to say about this issue, however if you read my first review you will know most of my problems with this issue stem from the lack of main universe Scott Summers. Not only that, most of the comic is filled with preachy hate for him. As I have stated before, Scott deserves none of this hate, especially from the X-Men that should know him better. I dislike that nobody in the Marvel Universe (other than Cyclops’ team) seems to have any sense, and this comic does nothing but prove that everyone in the Marvel Universe is a dumbass.
What were your thoughts? As harsh and close minded as mine?
Until the next time, FUTURE!!!
