  1. Living and Dying Cerebra guides Xorn to a mutant living with his mother Unfortunately, the mutant looks like a monster and has been accused of eating a dog.If I hadn t already had the truth behind Xorn spoiled for me, this would have been a touching story for a superhero comic.New Worlds Professor X and Jean Grey try to learn the extent of her power boost, Fantomex demands sanctuary from the X Corporation, and Cyclops asks Emma Frost for help.I like what Morrison is doing with the X Men during h [...]


  2. Following the first volume which opened with a bang not least with the destruction of Genosha that killed sixteen million mutants this second volume takes Grant Morrison s New X Men into the middle chapter syndrome with multiple plot strands and an overly extensive cast, which tends to be an issue when creators tackle the X Men who have their own universe outside of their Marvel co stars.The book opens with 127 which solely showcases the newest X Man Xorn, the Chinese mutant with a star for a br [...]


  3. There s still some really good stuff here, but it isn t as uniformly good as the previous volume Quentin Quire and his hipster Brotherhood wannabes dragged the whole volume down for me I didn t find him or his storyline particularly interesting If that was all to this collection, I probably wouldn t have liked it much But there are some really good things here Angel and Beak Xorn and the twelve year old mutant The Emma Scott Jean love triangle Very much worth reading, to say the least.


  4. There s a lot of great stuff in this volume, but my favorite story line is the Cyclops Jean Emma triangle Emma Frost is such an great character You have to admire anyone who can manage to do the right thing and be an evil bitch at the same time Unfortunately, the Jumbo Carnation story felt goofy and flat to me Ditto with Quentin and his gang of dorky rebels Seems to me it s been done before.However, there is a great cliffhanger at the end that had me snatching up the next volume as fast as I cou [...]


  5. I liked this better than book one I don t recall as many funny moments, but some of the stories are engaging, and the overall art is better too.The story of Xorn and the monster boy is sad but held my attention John Paul Leon s art is pretty good, with lines kind of similar to what you d see in Gotham Central It s the most distinguishable from the rest of the art in this book, and makes for a nice refresher especially after all the Frank Quitely stuff from before.I didn t care for the New World [...]


  6. I found this second volume to be a bit disappointing following the big ideas and grand over arching storyline of the first book There seems to be different strands of story going on but none of it is really connected and some of them are downright dull.The book starts off with the X Men with new member Xorn he who has a star for a brain and the mask of a movie serial killer as they deal with trouble in the Channel Tunnel, something called Weapon XII, and an evil mutant espionage thief called Fan [...]


  7. Wellere was good and bad stuff about this collection, and some of the most disappointing stuff was actually some of the artworkI also got overwhelmed with too many mutants at some points Wolverine does not feature heavily in this book, though there is a fair bit of Beast, which is a nice change Some of the stuff is silly, some of it good, Xorn is a very interesting character, and it was great seeing lesser used characters old ones like Arcangel, Storm, Quicksilver, Polaris, and some of the first [...]


  8. Getting the Kordey art out of the way early was definitely good After the Fantomex story ended, it was all good art for the rest of the volume We even got the longest stretch of Quitely art probably in the entire series.And that Quitely art just happened to cover the best story arc of the entire run thus far, and potentially my favorite X Men story the Quentin Quire centered Riot At Xavier s.It took me too long to finally get around to reading this and I m loving it even than I expected It s sa [...]


  9. Continues to have the same strengths and weaknesses as the previous volume I did enjoy Emma Frost s increased role in the last few arcs of this volume, and it was interesting to see the first appearance of some familiar characters from later X Men stories, such as Quentin Quire and Glob Herman Still, I m looking forward to finishing the 3rd volume so I can say I ve read the series, but I don t expect it to come together in a way that makes this a favourite.



  10. What in the world is with the Here s Johnny look Wolverine has on this cover This collection wasn t as tense as the first, but I still really enjoyed most of the stories here.Highlights Jean.n Still really loving her character and she had several awesome moments in this volume I only wish that when she finally found out about what was going on between Emma and Scott that she hadn t focused all her rage blame onto Emma Even though I understood why she did The whole Who shot Emma Frost storyline I [...]


  11. While this volume maybe isn t quite as good as the last, I still really enjoyed volume two of New X Men There are many smaller storylines this time and my favorites were the ones with Emma, Jean, and Scott and the ones with Special Class, particularly Beakie and Angel These characters are so strong that they carry the book on their own I liked seeing the introduction of Fantomex, even if the villain in that arc is not very interesting I also liked seeing Quentin Quire get his start even though I [...]


  12. some great ideas here, but grant starts to go off the rails on character building, and that s where he starts to lose his edge in general the two exceptions are the depictions of phoenix which, while gripping, are all too brief and the introduction of fantomex a divisive character, but i ve always liked him e biggest problem here is the central story riot at xavier s i m still not sure what the damn story is supposed to add up to kids hate their elders youngsters don t like the idea of peace and [...]


  13. I hate to do it, but Vol 1 only earned 2 stars and I disliked this one even Hence 1 pathetic little star.There just wasn t anything here I liked None of the 50 new mutants wondering around the school were remotely interesting, and all the old favorites acted so out of character except Wolverine, of course that they may as well have been new additions Fantomex felt like the creation of a junior high kid trying to write an awesome spy movie and the drugged up mutant rebels in the matching striped [...]


  14. Well, this trade was rather a mixed bag in my opinion There were some really good parts Jean finding out what Scott and Emma have been up to, pretty much everything with Xorn in it, Beast s labor of love at the end , but there were just as many, if not , not so good parts.The whole Scott Emma relationship skeeves me out to no end Yes, it was just mental, but even Scott realized that he was cheating on Jean with Emma I m not invested in Scott and Jean s relationship, but I can t stand Scott and E [...]


  15. Probably my favorite volume of the Grant Morrison run Introduces some of my all time favorite characters, including Fantomex and Dust and the Stepford Cuckoos who were technically introduced in the previous volume but get better time here The drug thing wasn t my favorite But it was fine And anyway I liked the focus on younger mutants, still trying to figure out who they were, and I like the way it all builds up to shatter Xavier s mission, send Cyclops away, etc All the fun stuff that still ech [...]


  16. The second act of Grant Morrison s seismic X Men run is quite possibly the high point of the series After using the first act to set up all the new concepts, relationships and themes, this is where Grant really starts to develop them and flesh those ideas out Notably, I recall that this part of the arc is where the story started to get so complex especially the Riot at Xavier s story being immediately followed by a complicated murder mystery that it could no longer be followed quite as easily in [...]


  17. The first story in here, the Fantomex one, was just something I didn t much care for So much so that I almost put the book down before finishing it But once I struggled past it the book picked up in quality a ton although the art remained slightly sub par throughout most of the book.Everything with the Cuckoos was amazing, and Scott and Jeans marriage falling apart via Emma Frost was amazing to watch It s the kind of character development you sadly don t see very often in super hero comics.


  18. Morrison s take on the X Men is pretty solid After playing around with the nanosentinels early on, he goes into traditional territory and I think it works a lot better Lots of mutants with the levels of outlandishness you d expect from Morrison very nice angsty teens some really great moments of humour After an interesting, quirky but self indulgent begining to his run, it feels like Morrison is getting into a decent albeit slightly traditional stride and is really enjoying it Quality mutant f [...]


  19. Grant Morrison s run on New X Men continues, but I m getting bored Convoluted stories are fine, but I don t really care about most of the characters and the art feels uneven Faces, in particular, look hastily drawn.I keep trudging through so I can get to Joss Whedon s run, beginning with Astonishing X Men Vol 1 Gifted I hope I m not disappointed.


  20. I look at All Star Superman and think, Marvel had this team and couldn t manage it Morrison takes the things that make the X Men work and puts his stamp on it Loved the stories Hated the inconsistent art Opening the book to Igor Kordey s rushed art job made me sick just looking at it I know his art is better represented in other books This is the only reason I give it 4 instead of 5 stars Teen angst by Morrison drawn by Frank Quitely is just great.


  21. maybe a lil bit of spoiling in this review I enjoyed this volume I think it could have been a tad nuanced with some of the activist allegory of pacifist vs violence dynamics, but I liked Quentin Quire and friends anyways I also acknowledge that perhaps the lack of nuance was intentional to exhibit the affects of drugs and teenage ideological rage Overall I was fairly sucked into the stories and did not find them at all predictable.


  22. Reprints New X Men 127 141 The New X Men meet Fantomex, return to Genosha, and battle problems in the Institute I enjoy the collection, but there are definite hits and misses in it Some stories seem underdeveloped the Genosha story and others seem overdeveloped the Fantomex storyline Regardless of the content, I give Morrison credit for trying new things with the X Men and taking chances with favorite characters.


  23. This volume has a slightly different tone than the first the story lines are much character driven and there are two one shots that are genuinely heart felt Overall, I preferred this volume to the first but for the final story arc, Murder in the Mansion , a clumsily executed murder mystery.


  24. I love how this volume sets up tons and tons of ideas for other writers to pick up if they want if editorial lets themither of which happened , and yet manages to set up so much for the grand, year long finale.


  25. Morrison at his best imo, I know some love it and some hate it, I love ite art matches the writing perfectly, I think Morrison does this better than anyone else though probably loop Enis and Ellis into that group just an awesome collection


  26. I enjoyed the murder mystery that this volume ended with, but other than that, I thought the volume overall was pretty meh Maybe I should ve read the other X men ongoings too, but by itself, it felt pretty fragmented As for the love triangle between Scott Jean Emma, no thanks.


  27. Some of the stories made some confusing jumps Not as strong as the first volume of stories, and the art wasnt as good, but this is still decent collection.


  28. I met a guy at a Halloween party who was dressed as Quentin Quire I was the only person there who knew who he was.
