"Primer Part 1 of 3"
That said, this was not a perfect first issue. There are a lot of questions for people who do not know the characters. If you are new to X-Men, you will not already know Jubilee is a vampire or that Rogue has to borrow powers so that she can fly and have super strength. You don't understand the connections between the characters or even that Jubilee doesn't have a baby. Regardless of that or if you know that information, there is a lot to enjoy.
The characters act as if they know each other very well (which they do). They fight like a well oiled machine and do well with minimal verbal communication. The scene with the ladies getting Jubilee from the train was magnificent.
I am glad I gave this book a shot. I hope that things start to level out a little and more explanation is added in coming issues but overall it was a good start to the series for people who already know and love X-Men. If this is your first rodeo...maybe check out All-New X-Men in the early issues.
