MY GOODNESS, my head hurts.
So the X-Men are comfy. They have fought of the two evils from the last book and they are finally bunking down and getting back to what they have been trying to do since they got together: teach the next generation.
Well, little do they know that the real danger is among them and someone is about to betray and hurt every last one of them. Again, little do they know that pushing off the last two evils may bite them in the tush with a big, giant BANG.
Basically, they are fighting them and themselves.
Wolverine acts like a scared little boy, The Beast goes very beast-like, Kitty can’t stop going through.. well the core of the earth, Cyclops can’t see anymore, and Frost… Frost has a whole other game going. Colossus is in some major ish himself.
We get to know some of the kids as well, and they may in fact save the school.
What I REALLY LIKE ABOUT THIS VOLUME is Joss Whedon’s writing. He puts everyone in this major danger and weaves in humor that will make you laugh while catching your breath.
Each X-Men is faced with their fears. Kitty’s, I will say, is the saddest and the one that will make you wish you never read this volume (but you’ll be glad you did). That’s what Whedon does: he rips your heart out and pats you on the back for comfort.
