I really enjoyed the New Mutants of the 80s and the ability to go back and read a possible adventure with them seemed like a great idea. Unfortunately, this is not what it could have been. The story involves Nova Roma, one of my least favorite New Mutants storylines, and is utterly ridiculous. The villain, who is a classic Marvel villain, is completely misused here. The plot, frankly makes no sense. The dialogue is exactly what you would expect with Chris Claremont, which is verbose but still good. The art by Al Rio was an odd choice for the material. All the characters were too buff for who they are and when this takes place. Also, there were a couple panels that were misguided and confusing. Overall, an odd storyline choice and a terrible plot.
i was looking forward to this series, considering i've read all of Claremont's original New Mutants and X-Men runs... unfortunately, this does not hold up. Mirage and Wolfsbane are immediately written out of the story, as are Magneto and Storm. Selene's sudden devotion to her great-great-grandaughter is laughable, considering the number of times she's tried to kill Magma, and the transformation of Cypher, as well as just about every other elemnt of the story, is pretty ridiculous. i picked up the original 4 issues, but didn't bother to read the 5th. Unless you're a hardcore New Mutants or Claremont fan, i'd suggest skipping this miniseries all together and pick up Zeb Wells recent run on New Mutants instead.
