I am truly starting to believe that Bendis can do no wrong with his X-Men titles. This book has been nothing short of wonderful since the first issue hit my pull list. I can't wait to see what the overlap in Uncanny X-Men does in relation to this book, but I am getting ahead of myself.
At the end of the last issue, Scott and his team had shown up at the Jean Grey School to find members to join their school, The New Xavier School. Of course this name doesn't make the members of the Jean Grey School too thrilled and it makes Wolverine and the staff a tad nervous about losing their students to the school. The issue ends with someone claiming that they will be going with Scott (I am guessing Jean but they do not say) which comes as a shock to everyone else.
Other than the conversation at the school, Mystique is finally on the move and she is using the image of X-Men to do it. I wonder what she is up to...It is sort of nice to see some actual villain movement instead of just seeing the two teams at each other.
I have said it once and will continue to say that if you have ever been an X-Men fan, ever been interested in the X-Men, or ever wondered if it is a good time to start reading it now is the time. Bendis is doing a masterful job building a story that is enjoyable to be along on the ride with. Pick this series up and be sure to read Uncanny X-Men along with it!
