  1. Another version of the x-men of the future… Not this book has any seriously problems, but I’m talking about general x-men books when I say that I am tired of them being divided. I feel like it’s been to long since they have all been in unity. You got time displaced original four hanging with the this school, then you have the “terrorist” unit. I really hope X-Men by Brian Wood brings back that X-Men unity we (or just I) need.

    Can’t wait for this. I really wanna see the kids as full status X-Men again and Apocalypse aka Genesis causing destruction. I loved the design for Genesis as future Apocalypse and I hope he shows up in Uncanny. I also hope Angel and Genesis get involved some way in what is happening in Uncanny.

  2. Ramon Perez + Future X Men = early front runner for my potw

  3. Yes! A Ramon Perez X-Men issue that isn’t about Dog! Can’t wait!

  4. Just please fix Broo already.

  5. Very close to dropping this, the last arc was boring and it hasn’t reached the heights it was at when it first burst on the scene.

  6. I’m hoping this issue and the upcoming Hellfire Arc brings back the fun and humor that made this series so awesome before AVX. Enough of Wolverine angsting already! This is a series about the school, its students, and the faculty. Let’s widen the scope out and play with this new school more!

  7. JML (@twitter.com/JoshMLabelle) says:

    Since Bendis got on the other two books, this one has felt kind of redundant. This was fun, but felt especially lightweight. I would be okay if Marvel didn’t do any more time travel stuff for a while, but it’s looking like the X-Men 50th anniversary thing is going to be non-stop that.

    • I disagree — sure, the circus arc was rough, but I think this savage land story has really helped develop a few of the students, and solidified Wolverine’s credibility as a teacher and role model. Both of those things are entirely absent from any other X-books.

    • As I said on the last issue when this book is on (such as this issue and the last) it has more heart in one issue then all of Bendis X-Books have had combined. It’s not going to be as good as the first 7 or so issues when Aaron was introducing the school right now. How could it be? The set up and the sense of wonder it brought can’t last forever. Let the comic transition. It still is one of the best Super Hero books on the shelf even if a lot of stuff has managed to surpass it because of Image’s 2012 and the Marvel post AvX relaunch. This and Daredevil were like the first two Marvel Now books in terms of scope, ambition and voice. Let it evolve man.

  8. I am such a sucker for X-Men future stories that I would have loved this no matter what, but I think this was Perez’s best issue on this book and Jason Aaron continued his brilliant character work. My runner up pick.

  9. Much better than the previous few issues. Felt like the title was getting back on track. Fingers crossed.

  10. This was my POTW. What a great issue!

  11. I enjoyed this issue, but totally uncomfortable with a murdering thug being in charge of the minds of the next generation of mutants. Wolverine no longer has my support in anything. He’s a killer of children and a traitor to his people. ..he most certainly cannot be ddscribed as a hero. He’s just a mutant punisher

  12. This was okay. I’m underwhelmed more often than I am pleased by this book, but Jason Aaron is such a strong writer that I think it’s kept me from dropping this before. I will strongly reconsider before grabbing this next time. The art is a stronger pull for me than anything right now.
