X-Men: Pixie Strikes Backby Sara Pichelli (Artist), Kathryn Immonen
Pixie, X-23, Armor, Mercury, and Blindfold go to high school and learn the joy of cafeteria food, communal bathrooms, and peer pressure. But something's not quite right with all of it, and it has to do with Pixie. Things get even stranger when Pixie's mother shows up on Utopia demanding to see her daughter. Here's the thing, you don't know the truth about Pixie. You don't know who her dad is and neither, frankly, does she. You don't realize that her father is one of the most dangerous X-Villains ever! And when you find out, you won't look at your favorite Welsh X-Girl in the same way ever again!

Pixie is one of those new era X-characters that actually is enjoyable. She is likable and along the same teen mutants from the past as Kitty Pryde, Jubilee, and Magik. I really like her. All of that being said, this book was a train wreck. The storyline was difficult to follow because the art was so dark. Sara Pichelli's art, who I normally like, is very dark here. Characters don't stand out. Possibly its a new inker but its too dark. The inclusion of Pixie's parentage is an interesting idea with a ridiculous outcome. The villains are a joke and the X-Men actually act out of character. Overall, the book is pretty pointless and unappealing.
