Brian Wood is a writer that I can enjoy......unless he's working with the X-Men. Here, very similar feelings. First off, I love the idea of all female X-Team that happens organically through the storyline. Jubilee coming back into the fold is great. Her newly found bundle is interesting. Sadly, that's about it story wise. I hate John Sublime. Adding him to the mix of the antagonist is unfortunate. The newly created strife between Ororo and Rachel felt unbelievably forced considering their histories. The art by Olivier Coipel and David Lopez was really good. Maybe my expectations were high due to the fact it was a newly minted X-Men series but I was left wanting more.
