What a fun, interesting book!

The layers Bendis builds up with the different characters, pushing them in different directions that you might ordinarily think, is really cool.

I love seeing the young versions of the original X-Men learning about this new, messed up world.

I've gotta say, this series has really surprised me. I went into it with low expectations, and it totally blew me away. Out of all of the Marvel Now! titles, this is easily one of my favorites. That's a testament to the writing of Brian Michael Bendis. The guy can write an entire issue where characters just sit around talking, and I eat it up. That isn't always the case with his work, but for some reason it just works incredibly well here. I think Bendis was born to write these characters. In volume 2, our time-displaced X-men must continue to adapt to a world they don't recognize, and don't necessarily care for. Cyclops must continue to live with the burden that he will grow up to murder his mentor Professor Xavier, making him the most feared and hated of all the X-men. He finds himself easily manipulated by Mystique, who is up to no good (as usual). Jean has to contend with her newfound power, and the fact that she will one day become a martyr. It's a bit jarring for her and the reader as she tries to control her powers, since she has a tendency to abuse it. Angel also gets a bit of a shock when he meets his future self, causing him to want to go back home. Luckily, the kids have Kitty Pryde as their headmistress. It's just as difficult for her as it is for them when she tries to train them to be the best they can be. There are also encounters with the Avengers and Hydra. Finally, when present-day Cyclops and his Uncanny X-Men show up at the school to recruit new members, which of the original five will choose to defect? Volume 2 continues the story that began in volume 1, and it's incredibly interesting and entertaining. Handling art this time around is David Marquez, who is a wonderful substitute for Stuart Immonen. You can't go wrong with this one

Here is the Bendis I love to read! Wow! What a fun, interesting book! Although Vol. 1 of this series was pretty book, this second collection is just outstanding. I like the artwork on this book, but it’s really the storyline and dialogue that shines in this book. You have tons of character interaction as the original X-men learn about the present day, ask lots of questions to their peers, and decide on whether or not staying in the present is the right choice. More than that, though, you have building subplots involving Sabertooth and Mystique, more internal strife, some laugh-out-loud moments, and a great cliffhanger ending. You’ll be hard pressed to find another Marvel book more engaging than this one. This is the best book from Bendis in years, and I have no problem grading the writing on this book as A+ material. The cliffhanger ending to this book is outstanding, and I eagerly look forward to reading the next book in this series!

Marquez and Immonen do nice work on the art, and their styles are similar enough that it isn’t jarring when the pages shift from one artist to the other. The inkers and colorists do a fine job, too, but for me, it all comes back to the writing. I can deal with sub-par artwork if the writing is good. In this book, you have above-average artwork combined with superb writing, though, so I must highly recommend this book to all comic book fans.

After reading the first volume in this new series, I couldn’t help downloading and blazing through the second volume. If you haven’t read the first review I’ve done for this series, take a minute and do so.

In this book things really come to a head. Young Scott is trying to figure out what he’s supposed to do, trying to deal with knowing Professor X is dead (killed by his future self – although he still doesn’t know how that can be possible) and that the love of his life (Jean Grey) is also dead. He can’t think inside the revamped X-Men Academy so he decides to leave – and steals Wolverine’s motorcycle to do it. That, of course, sets up a hilarious sequence of events that actually turns out to be more touching than I would have supposed. Bendis is just awesome like that.

Jean Grey goes through a lot of turmoil as well, trying to make sense of everything that’s going on. I really like what Bendis is doing with her, giving her the approach that if she just works hard enough at everything, she’ll be able to fix it. That’s the Jean of old, and I like her as much now as I did back then.

The old X-Man character that really steals the show in this graphic novel, to me anyway, is Angel. When Warren Worthington III discovers that the high-flying Angel is still around, he expects him to be changed. What he doesn’t expect is that while Angel is still here, Warren isn’t. This is another change that I missed while being away from the X-books. This new Angel is just really freaking weird.

There are plenty of plot twists in this one too. Mystique is out doing her own thing, freeing bad guys and setting up missions. Bendis does like to stir the pot when he’s putting things in motion.
