Verdict - 5

What I think: Being an X-Men fan for years I was excited to see this book. The wrap-around cover is great and the alternate covers are nice as well. I really love the art style, the picture of Beast when he is talking to his past self is awesome. Everything in this issue flowed well, from the coloring and the layout to the overall flow of the story. There are a few new developments in this issue, including Cyclops team searching for new mutants to join his cause, which appears to be more of an anarchist than liberation. It also focuses on Beasts 2nd mutation and his fear that he is digressing. In the end we see Beast go back to the past to bring the original 5 X-Men to the present to talk some sense into Scott. It's going to be an exciting ride and I can't wait for the next issue.
