  1. Mohawk Storm? Sold.

  2. I’ve been waiting so long for the return of this Storm.

  3. in for the first few issues, but, like all new marvel now titles, on a short leash

  4. I’ve been looking forward to this. Call me crazy, but I’ve missed seeing Bishop. I really hope this opening arc helps to fix him.

  5. I was originally picking this up for Ron Garney, but after reading the John Carter: A Princess of Mars Marvel adaptation, I’m now here for Sam Humphries..

  6. They lost me with Mohawk Storm..to each his own I guess, but I always hated that look.

  7. So stoked for this! Cluster, Fantomex, mohawk storm, Puck! shit! the only thing i don’t like about this is Psylocks new outfit lol
    I don’t want this to be like Remenders Xforce. I really hope Humphries makes this is own, with a team like that and a great artist like Garney, this is gonna be full of win!

  8. In Puck I trust, plus that Sam Humphries is pretty good.

  9. Garney is worth the price of admission here, but the idea of a freaky weird team of misfit mutants doesn’t hurt, either.

  10. In for a couple issues at least.

    They had me at Ron Garney.

  11. I kind of wish I hadn’t read Paul’s review before picking this up. It was okay but I think that review raised my expectations a bit too much. Not enough happened to really grab my interest and i dont like how Psylocke is being written. She was almost cartoonishly angry, on the verge of someone Liefeld would write. I think this will improve (he writes Storm and Puck very well). I love the creators on this book and the cast of characters, so I will give it a few more issues.
    The twist ending also did not sit well with me at all. I’ll give it time to play out before judging it, but my initial reaction is not positive.

  12. As a Fantomex fan they really got me with the last page. It just seems… appropriate, in a strange way.

  13. I was disappointed with this. I didn’t really have any expectations, but I know Remender’s run is revered and I intend on getting that in a collection. So I jump on at this new #1 and it seems like standard stuff. Psylocke & Fantomex were the two characters I have been most intrigued by and I didn’t really feel like getting to know them better after being introduced to them here. Psylocke’s personality seems more suitable for a villain and Fantomex came off as a Pepe le Pew caricature. Storm worked for me and so did Puck. I thought the art was only ok. This first issue does not add up to me coming back for more.

  14. Pretty average fare for me on this one. I definitely like mohawk Storm and enjoyed the new costumes as well for Storm and Psylocke but nothing amazing story-wise for me. I’ll give it a couple issues. And yeaaa…not that big a fan of Garney’s art. It’s just okay to me.

  15. Man, did I love this. The book just had a swagger that totally sold me. It doesn’t give a fuck what you think, it’s just gonna have incestuous clones and Puck splash-pages all over the place!

    Couple that with the best work of Ron Garney’s career and you’ve beaten out Justice League for PotW! Not for everybody, surely, but just right for me.

  16. Psylocke seems really out of character with the sailor mouth. I’m not big on Ron Garney either, but Bishop and Spiral intrigue me… im torn on this one.

  17. A decent start, I’m interested enough to keep picking it up. I’m interested to see what happens with Bishop as well.

  18. I enjoyed this, and loved Garney’s art, as it reminds me of Silvestri (including a close-up of Storm that was straight out of the Silvestri play book!), but like a bunch of the Marvel NOW! comics I’ve read, it felt like part 1 of what should have been a double-sized issue. I guess when they’re already gouging readers with $3.99, they didn’t want to double size it and charge $5.99. I really hope though that this “everyone getting together” doesn’t take the entire first arc. My only other complaint was Psylocke’s sailer mouth. It just felt out of place, particularly for someone who’s upper-class British, and frankly for the way her character has been for the last 25 years. It doesn’t make her or the comic “edgy”, it makes it kind of silly. Other than that though, I’m totally on board!

  19. Ron Garney’s art was awesome, but other than that this book didn’t really do it for me. I don’t really care for anyone that’s on the team except for Storm and Psylocke, but Betsy seemed really out of character here. I think I’ll pass on this and just wait for Brian Wood’s X-Men to replace this.

  20. I had no expectations for this one and almost passed on it. im glad i didnt because this was fantastic. Funny how growing up I didn’t care about Storm (mohawk or not), Psylocke or Bishop at all, but I’m really excited to see this team develop. Garney’s art is beautiful and Puck looks like a dwarven Canadian Iron Sheik, which is cool. I’m sold.

  21. This was surprisingly alright. I really had no intention to pick this up since there is absolutely no fucking way that it could be as good as Remender’s run, but I gave it a shot and was presently surprised. It’s one of those books that if it came out on a lighter week I would totally pick it up.

  22. Rocking issue, especially the art! It reminds me so much of Jim Lee’s days with the X-Men. Storm looks super-cool. Wonder what happened to Psylocke during the six month gap. And does that thing with Fantomex qualify as incest?

  23. This was quite good. If you’re going to follow up a beloved run this is the way to do it. I’m on board.

  24. I enjoyed this a lot. The art was great. The pacing was good. I’ll definitely try issue 2.
