    Hey does anybody know what happened to Cyclops? Because apparently he's dead. I know, right? When did that shit happen...and why? Is Marvel just cleaning house when it comes to old X-men? So. Yeah. Guess I'll have to try and dig that story up next. That's actually a soft maybe. Because, seriously, I'm not sure I can bring myself to care.

And also because Old 'Clops evidently went out like a massive douchebag... To top it all off, there's a group of grubby teenage mutants going by the name Ghosts of Cyclops who are using his death as an excuse to loot & steal shit. The gist of the story here in volume one is that the other X-teens jump in the Mystery Machine, find the idiot teens, rally behind Scott (who has already found the idiot teens), and try to save the day. Whooo! This volume is less about any sort of action-based plot, and more about emotions. Laura and Angel are having relationship difficulties, Bobby is having a hard time accepting that everyone accepts that he's gay (I think?), Beast thinks he's irrelevant because other people have beaten him to making cool apps...and so on. Bottom line? It didn't rock my world, but it wasn't the worst thing I've ever read. At any rate, I'll give the next volume a shot.

    In the eight months since Battleworld, Cyclops has died - somehow, somewhen, by possibly someone (the suddenly-lethal-to-mutants Terrigen Mist might’ve got ‘im!). In his wake are a gang of mutant idiots wearing Cyclops masks calling themselves the Ghosts of Cyclops, causing havoc wherever they appear. It’s up to the teenage time-displaced All-New X-Men - including the young Cyclops - to stop them. Not enough Cyclops mentions in this paragraph? CYCLOPS! Wow, it’s tough to be an X-Men fan these day In the eight months since Battleworld, Cyclops has died - somehow, somewhen, by possibly someone (the suddenly-lethal-to-mutants Terrigen Mist might’ve got ‘im!).

It’s up to the teenage time-displaced All-New X-Men - including the young Cyclops - to stop them. Not enough Cyclops mentions in this paragraph? CYCLOPS! Wow, it’s tough to be an X-Men fan these days, especially since their two main titles - this one and Extraordinary - have some major suckitude going on! The Ghosts of Cyclops are a joke: nobodies with lame powers and no goals who may as well be wearing signs saying “Filler”! They’re just meaningless targets for the X-Men to fight. Just like Blob in the second half of the book who shows up to also act as filler/a target for the X-Men. It’s such a boring, uninspired read! The young Scott gives the most retarded speech ever. Bearing in mind he’s from the PAST, he talks about how his future is already set in stone and that he’ll grow up to be the asshat Cyclops who recently died mysteriously. Uh, here’s an idea: travel back to your time and, using the knowledge you have of the person you’ll be, become a different person! How can someone who’s from the past, with the ability to alter the future, be so dumb as to believe his future is intractable?! You know of his mistakes, you can avert them! What a fucking moron. I couldn’t have cared less about Angel and Wolverine’s relationship drama but I did like the way Bobby talked about his homosexuality, like how it’s easy for others to accept but not as easily for him, as well as Idie’s crisis of faith in Christianity. You know, stuff that actually felt like they took some thought to write rather than just going through the motions with “Random Useless Enemy attacks X-Men for x pages”. Unfortunately these glimmers of quality only last for a few pages. I suppose Mark Bagley’s art throughout is pretty decent too but not especially exciting or standout from the usual Marvel standard. Ghosts of Cyclops is another terrible X-Men book that does nothing to take these characters out of the tailspin they’ve been in for some time. All-New has an aptly named writer with Dennis Hopeless!

    In this post-Secret Wars X-Men relaunch, the teenage versions of the original X-Men from an alternate universe (and they say comics aren't accessible to new readers) have found themselves a combo Mystery Machine/TARDIS and hit the road.

I'm less keen on the addition of Evan and Idie; there just doesn't seem to be much reason for them to be there (at least Laura has a reason to join the team, in that she's 'going steady' with Warren). I'm quite upset that Jean's left the team, too. In this volume, our protagonists face off against a group of wannabe mutant terrorists who have styled themselves after Cyclops and then go up against a seriously powered-up Blob. I quite enjoyed the ride, particularly the dynamic between Laura and Warren. I also really liked Hank's self-doubt due to his knowledge of science being years out of date. All in all, it was an OK read but nothing special. It's about a hundred times better than it's sister book Extraordinary X-Men though.

    It's a bit more bearable than Extraordinary X-Men, but not by a lot. Where Extraordinary focuses on the implausibly long list of bad things currently happening to mutants, All-New focuses instead on smaller, more personal issues. So while Storm is fretting about the mass sterilization of mutants, Hank is realizing that he isn't quite so impressive when his knowledge base is more than a decade out of date.

But because every single character is experiencing some sort of personal crisis (Scott is dealing with the legacy of his future self, Bobby is struggling to come to terms with his sexuality, Warren and Laura are having relationship problems, you get the idea) it's nearly as overwhelming as it is in Extraordinary. Pickles the bamf is the only character who isn't going through some sort of emotional turmoil. And it's kind of a lot to lay out all at once. I know that, in real life, groups of friends don't take turns going through crap, but in fiction, maybe they should? Or at least a bit more than they do here. It would be hopeless, if I didn't like these characters and the way that Hopeless writes them. Idie is here! I never really expected to see her again, to be honest, and I couldn't be more thrilled.

Jean Grey has left to live a normal life. Evan aka Kid Apocalypse and Oya have joined Cyclops, Beast, Iceman, Angel, and the former X-23 current Wolverine Laura Kinney. Cyclops has set off on his own quest going after The Ghosts of Cyclops a group that revere the recently deceased present day Cyclops. Meanwhile this group of young adults has their share of challenges. I'm not a fan of Cyclops in general. He always seemed a pompous brown-noser and one of the best things I had seen was him doing his revolution business prior to his passing. He was still pompous, but he was at least honest. Despite my general feelings I feel terrible for past Cyclops. Traveling to the future and learning you turn into just about everything you hate has to be devastating. He's handling things surprisingly well. The first three issues are primarily centered around him dealing with The Ghosts of Cyclops. The next three issues shift into emotion-ville. All the young team members are forced to deal with their issues. Hank intelligence isn't cutting edge because of his jump to the future, Cyclops has to deal with what he becomes, Evan is an Apocalypse clone, Oya is religious and believed mutants were demons so she hates herself, Iceman is gay yet is uncomfortable with that fact, and Laura and Angel are having problems in their relationship. This was really off-putting because the X-Men were literally all whining about their problems in these three issues. Perhaps for a young adult audience this would have been more appreciated, but I felt like I was being overwhelmed with teenage emotions even though they aren't all teenagers. I hope the author got that out of his system or at least is willing to take turns because it was just too much. Ghost of Cyclops was an OK story, but their is still some potential. As always I still wonder when the time traveling X-Men will go home, but I'm trying to enjoy their story in the moment.

Then we have a couple of subplots about Laura and angel relationship and bobby dealing with being gay. Good: Some fun dialogue between the characters at points. I still really enjoyed the Laura and Angel moments (even if a bit silly) but least entertaining. Bad: The art is kind of wonky. I think the fights were pretty hard to follow at points. I didn't like some of the designs for the ghost of cyclops either. The storyline, while not terrible, was kind of cliche and boring. Overall, it's not a bad title but just okay at best. 2.5 out of 5.

    This surprised me...because I actually liked it. Mark Bagley's art was as winning as it always is. Dennis Hopeless has taken the original X-Men along with Oya and Kid Apocalypse and sent them in a new direction, road tripping around the world. Hopeless has a good handle on the characters and their voices. The Ghost of Cyclops are a bunch of college kids using Cyclop's memory as an excuse to rebel. the latter half of the book features a battle with Blob. This surprised me...because I actually liked it.

    Well, that certainly wasn't anything special... Coming off Jonathan Hickman's Secret Wars, the young time-displaced X-Men are scattered across America, laying low and basically on permanent vacation until they realize Scott Summers is in danger. Hopeless won't say what's happened, but in some undefined period of time between Secret Wars and this here relaunch (yes, yet another one...hey, it's Marvel) of All-New X-Men, the old present-day Scott Summers died in one last awful act of terrorism. Wha Well, that certainly wasn't anything special...

Hopeless won't say what's happened, but in some undefined period of time between Secret Wars and this here relaunch (yes, yet another one...hey, it's Marvel) of All-New X-Men, the old present-day Scott Summers died in one last awful act of terrorism. What happened? I dunno know, but it apparently has something to do with the Inhumans vs. X-Men arc that comes up toward the end of this book's run. So, we get two three-issue arcs in here. The first involves Scott going to war against a rag-tag team of college anarchists who call themselves The Ghost of Cyclops. Dennis Hopeless injects some nice commentary and gets us up to speed on the state of the X-Men pretty quickly and smoothly. Unfortunately, the end of this arc is unbelievably lackluster and ends on a ridiculously simplistic note. The second arc involves the X-Men fighting the Blob in Paris. It's kinda meh over all, literally just three issues of fighting. There is some neat exploration of the relationships between Angel and Laura (Wolverine), though, with him being overly protective and concerned for her welfare, whereas she jumps headfirst into danger that pretty much sees her getting set on fire every other day. It's a neat dynamic, but clearly there's a lot of strain on their romance, and it's gotta come to a head eventually. Overall, this wasn't a bad way to kill an hour but it's not as good as Lemire's run on Extraordinary X-Men so far. It's certainly easy reading, but don't get your hopes up too high for something brilliant and original. For an "All-New" X-Men, it feels like the same-old, same-old, refusing to break any new ground and too content to tread on everything that's come before.

Scott is struggling with being Cyclops (RIP adult Cyclops), Bobby is struggling with being gay, and Angel is struggling with Laura running into fights head/life first all while feeling pain (that scene with The Blob was heartbreaking). Idie and Evan are wonderful additions to the team & I'm a big Warren & Laura shipper. Also, the addition of Pickles the Bamf adds just the right amount of silliness to make this a good young X-Men comic. Strong start.

    This is probably my favorite ongoing series in the Marvel Universe, and yet I feel like Marvel is doing their best to put X-Men on the back burner. I wasn't expecting a lot out of this, I mean, this had so many things working against it: new author, terrible last collection by Bendis, Secret Wars doing a couple unforgivable things to the mutants of the Marvel U... instead I am pleased to report that this "reboot" is anything but the current author's surname.

    A bit teenybopper melodrama... but still fun and cool. Really great art from Mark Bagley as well. I don’t like this as much as Bendis’ run... but I still like it. I love Laura as Wolverine. There are some major departures from continuity, so if that kind of thing bugs you, expect some head scratching. Otherwise, this is some mostly softcore, kid friendly X-Men that might make you smile.

Ol' Fred's a gourmet now? How convenient. Meanwhile, Toad's getting drunk on beer in a seedy parisian pub. Yeah, sure, beer's France forte, like everyone knows so Toad goes all the way there to wet his whistle. How more contrived can this plot be? The romance between Warren and Laura could be cute but feels off-center somehow. Hank and Evan are as blank as a sheet of paper and Scott's a cry baby I personally want to slap. Half a cast of losers not so much better than the aforementioned Ghosts. The only idea I found original is Bobby's reluctance to acknowledge the fact that everybody accept him as gay when he has difficulties with it. This one hit the spot. I've never been a huge fan of Mark Bagley's unnoticeable art and this book didn't make me change my mind.

They're so cute how they love each other - it makes me puke. I remember how cool Archangel was in the olden days with the metal wings and poisonous feathers. X-23 was an anti-social killing machine that would stab first and ask questions never. This PG13 version of them is better suited for a teen drama. And then they have... (DUM-dum-duuuuuum) THE TALK. The Blob and Toad are more fun than all the gay, religious, reckless X-Men put together. (view spoiler)[Blog gets stabbed in the eye with some rebar by Warren, but otherwise the fights are lame. Cyclops gets captured by Toad, but I can't care less if he lives or dies. (hide spoiler)]

    Fun Hopeless' task to integrate the revived teenage original X-men with the teen children of many of the second gen X-men is done admirably here, particularly with the ghosts of Cyclops arc. The weight of Inhumans events is interesting but hardly felt. There are some jarring shifts in tone though due to the high teen angst and the number of crossover plots that can be involved in any X-book.

    In post Cyclops event world (of which we know little at this point) people hate mutants more than ever. So the displaced Beast, Angel and Iceman go on a roadtrip to see the world with Wolverine II (X-23), Kid Apocalypse and Idie. Meanwhile displaced Cyclops is stalking a terrorist group. In the second half of the book Blob runs amok in Paris!

    So much better than Extraordinary X-Men. Good character work, great art, decent story. The young X-Men from the past, Wolverine, Kid Apocalypse and Idie (who used to have a codename) roadtrip in the US and Europe. Scott has an identity crisis because of the unmentionable whatever other Scott has done. Even though the Terrigen Mist means there will be no more new mutants, they encounter some new mutants. And the Blob wants to eat dinner but the X-Men are determined to stop him.

    Anyone who reads my reviews semi-regularly knows how much I loathed the Bendis X-Men era, so when I say this is a vast improvement, please keep in mind how low the bar was. I find Hopeless to be hit-and-miss. I really enjoy his Spider Woman run, but Avengers Arena was SHIT. So I was really, really worried about him writing a bunch of teenagers again (especially Laura, she is my bb). After reading this volume I feel like he's having mixed success. I was so excited to read a non-Bendis X-Men run; Anyone who reads my reviews semi-regularly knows how much I loathed the Bendis X-Men era, so when I say this is a vast improvement, please keep in mind how low the bar was. I find Hopeless to be hit-and-miss. I really enjoy his Spider Woman run, but Avengers Arena was SHIT. So I was really, really worried about him writing a bunch of teenagers again (especially Laura, she is my bb). After reading this volume I feel like he's having mixed success. I was so excited to read a non-Bendis X-Men run; I wanted some good old fashioned mutant books! This might be a little TOO old fashioned... Basically, remember the days when the original X-Men were just children, running around the world with essentially no supervision? That's this. Except they have literally no supervision this time around. They're cruising around Europe in a couple of micro-buses, using trending Twitter news to find bad guys to beat up. Which is actually a pretty rad concept. They, like Hopeless, are having mixed success. Scott: Hopeless is writing a very Scott-like-Scott. Again, take your mind back to ye olden days of X-Men when he was struggling to make the team work together, trying to be a strategist, was super cute and idealistic, and often made moving "we're not enemies" speeches. That's this Scott. again. Which makes sense, as it's supposed to be that Scott pulled forward. So good job, Hopeless, for accurately writing a boring character. Still better than Bendis. Hank: Hopeless is working REALLY hard to make Hank sound like Hank. Occasionally he goes overboard ("visage" might be a bit much). Again, he's very Hank: he's got a very lively inner struggle going on about his worth and his intelligence, and at least he's got a decent vocabulary again. Basically Hank and Scott are just re-living the problems of their youth because THESE ones haven't actually lived them yet. It's a little boring to read, because WE'VE already seen them do this. Bobby: I'm actually very interested in what Hopeless is doing here. The general gist is: now that I've seen what happens if I live my entire life in the closet, and now that I've been outed anyway (thanks Jean), how do I live? The fundamental question for him is, "how do I be gay?" which is really just asking, "how do I be me?" He fully intended to go his entire life without ever dealing with this, and now he has to, and everyone's watching him try to do it. No one is being homophobic, in fact they're very supportive, but they are still watching. I think this is so interesting because, unlike Hank and Scott, Hopeless is actually doing something new with Bobby. He's still Bobby, still sounds and acts like Bobby, but he's actually doing new character growth, not re-growing old characters. Definitely better than Bendis. Laura: does not sound like Laura. Except, since the Bendis run, I suppose she can't go back to sounding like her old self now? People would find it too weird? IDK. Most of what Hopeless is doing with Laura is in relation to Warren, so we'll see how it all unfolds. She's ACTING like Laura most of the time at least. The thing is, everyone gets tangled up in her anger; they make her so explosive. But she was always terrifying because she WASN'T explosive. She was always so quiet, so calm, and then you were dead. And yes, there was rage, but it burned in her eyes in a horrifying silence. Still better than Bendis, so far. Warren: colour me interested. He has fire wings now, which is pretty rad. Again, most of him is in relation to Laura, so it's tough to say. Right at the end, there, he had a pretty awesome moment, and I'm interested to see what Hopeless does with it, both for Warren's own growth, and for the (broken) relationship between him and Laura. At least Warren has the potential to be interesting again, which IDK I haven't found him so since they made him blue. Idie: I'm actually really impressed at the attention Hopeless is giving to her, and how her struggle to pick up the pieces of her shattered faith is mirrored in Bobby's struggles. You opened your hand and what you thought you were holding is not what you actually have, so now what do you do with it? How do you reconcile all the pieces of yourself when your entire world has changed? This makes it sound like she's only there in relation to Bobby, and the cool thing is that she isn't. Her problems are about her, not about him, and I love that. I'm very interested to see if he can maintain this and produce growth. Much better than Bendis. Even: honestly, I had to go back and look up his name because so far he has not had much. He's the new Kid Apocalypse, and from what I've seen I really like him. He had a pretty great conversation with Bobby about how to become your own person when there is an audience and a ridiculous amount of baggage. So that's cool. Basically, he's spent a lot of time getting a feel for the characters and not a lot of time on plot. And while he's got a fair grasp on the characters, there's only a couple that he's actually doing new and interesting things with. We'll see if the run picks up speed once he gets a handle on who he's dealing with. Hopefully he can keep all the balls in the air; there are an awful lot of them to juggle here.

    Younger X-men but same old existential crisis. I like the new powers for Angel and Blob is more dangerous than he used to be when he's hungry. Younger X-men but same old existential crisis. I like the new powers for Angel and Blob is more dangerous than he used to be when he's hungry.

Most of the others I'ver read I liked, but this was something else. I knew most of the characters beforehand and even the ones that I didn't I grew to love in this volume. Every single member of the crew is enjoyable and interesting. The Action was great but for me the most important aspect of anything fiction is the characters and their development and relations. The Friendships and Relationships in this volume were fantastic. I love all of the seperate arcs. Hank being scared because he is not up to date with what he used to be good at. Idie dealing with her faith. Bobby with his sexual identity. Laura and Warren both dealing with their relationship. And obviously Scott has a lot to deal with. I especially loved Warren and Bobby in this volume, but all the characters where great. For me this is what a first Volume should look like. You should fall in love with the characters, you should have fun and you should want to read more. That is what the Volume did and for me that is more than worthy of 5 stars. I do see a lot of people being pissed because of the original Cyclops death but quite frankly for me it is a nice mystery added into the story. Some kind of reveal we can look forward to. If I were to have read the old volumes and gotten to know THAT Scott properly I might feel differently but for me this is my entrance into the Universe (Having read only few volumes of the "old" Scott before) and I am looking forward to continuing it. I also get that if someone reads this for the story/plot rather than for the characters (which is obviously a totally fine thing to do) it's probably not as good/enjoyable. But for someone like me, who reads it for the characters most of all (while a good plot is definately appreciated - and this one was decent/simple), it was perfect.

    Try to keep in mind this is still just a group of teenagers/young adults with the primary focus being on Scott Summers and his effort to make amends for a significant disaster the modern day Cyclops has committed. There are two sub topics I think are fairly important to this story that also help us see how our characters will eventually grow and develop. Iceman questions his comfort level with being openly gay. Idie struggles with her faith and belief in God. Both are pretty thought provoking, a Try to keep in mind this is still just a group of teenagers/young adults with the primary focus being on Scott Summers and his effort to make amends for a significant disaster the modern day Cyclops has committed.

    LaurWolverine's on the team, this time part of a good story as the love interest of Young Angel. The rest of the book took an issue or two to get into because I was annoyed by the teenybopper talk. But the showdown with the Cyclops Ghost Gang at the jail was solid, and now I am sucked into the plot. LaurWolverine's on the team, this time part of a good story as the love interest of Young Angel.
