x-men-prime-1-heroes

X-Men: Prime #1 is a good, if pricey, single comic. It does nothing to convince me to continue reading the series or any of Marvel’s constantly shifting X-books, but it does offer Kitty Pryde a nice moment or two and establish a new base for the core X-Men team. As to just who that core team is… that’s bit unclear. Kitty and Storm seem to be sticking around, but the time-displaced X-Men (you know, the ones who should have been returned to their time years ago?) have their own agenda, and Marvel still hasn’t filled the gaping holes the lose of Cyclops and Professor X have had on all the X-Men titles (and likely never will without bring them back).

Finally learning that bigger isn’t always better (see X-Men: Apocalypse and X-Men: The Last Stand), 20th Century Fox has moved away from the super-sized team film. With both Logan and Legion (FX’s new series based around the X-Men character of the same name), the X-Men universe is taking some interesting turns with a darker tone and smaller character-driven stories. Logan may not be as entertaining as Deadpool, but it definitely ranks as one of the better X-Men films (and easily the best of the Wolverine standalone movies).

Civil War II: X-Men #1Honestly, I don’t know how X-Men fans keep up on what characters are on what teams (let alone which are wearing white hats this month). It’s exhausting. Civil War II: X-Men #1 offers yet another shakeup to the X-Men universe. With a new team of Psylocke, Sabertooth, and M., led by Magneto working to protect mutants from Inhumans, the group comes into contact with another team of X-Men including Jean Grey, Magik, Iceman, Old Fart Logan, and Nightcrawler led by Storm when unleashed Terrigen Mist threatens the lives of several mutants.
