Manifest Destiny is pretty awesome! There's never a moment shy of entertainment, and it's really easy to follow(a great change of pace from New X-men). The best part of this arc is the new realistic threat, the X-men interactions, and Manifest Destiny #1-5 which explores characters individually and comes out fantastic. It reminded me of Astonishing's Ghost Boxes, but this series ended up doing the collected story method so much better. I shouldn't reveal to you excatly how it plays out, but lets just say some of your favorites get some special attention and analysis.

Along with that, there's some real undertones to examine in this book. Are humans going to be extinct? Do Mutants pose a threat to their existence? I believe this book has quite a bit of power to it. That's what makes it a lasting X-men trade. By the end of reading it, I thought it was sad that Fraction and Brubaker couldn't have taken over "Astonishing." Because they know the exact pacing these characters should have.

Being a former San Franciscan, I took note when Marvel decided to move the X-Men to San Francisco, and thought, hey, maybe that's a story I should read some time. After reading and enjoying Matt Fraction's X-Men: Nation X earlier this year, I decided that maybe it was time to go back to the beginning of the X-Men in SF story.

The basic story is: After previous Big Events (X-Men: Messiah Complex), the X-Men move to the Bay Area, buying up all of the military bases that dot the Marin headlands in order to create a complex/sanctuary for any of the remaining mutants who would like to join them. This book initially spends quite a bit of time on Pixie, a newer member of the X-Men team, but Cyclops, Wolverine, and Emma Frost form the backbone of the book (and this rebooted, relocated team). While this book is mostly about new beginnings, the team does face a threat in the form of the Hellfire Cult, who are determined to eliminate the mutant "threat" once and for all. The book ends with shorter slice of life/character study stories, which don't so much add to the plot as give you a deeper understanding of several of the characters.

I really, really enjoyed this book. While I'm starting to learn more X-Men canon, I'm still a relative newbie to their slice of the comics world, and I was easily able to follow along with the characters/plot/etc. So, if you're just looking to get started on the X-Men, this book is a pretty good entry point. I would imagine that if you aren't a beginner, it's just as good and satisfying a read.

Format: Paperback
After the mindshattering events of X-Men: Messiah Complex, Cyclops and Emma Frost decide that it's time for the X-Men to find a new home... SAN FRANCISCO! A place well known for there acceptance of diversity, and after saving the Mayor, they are welcomed with open arms. But not by all... a new Hellfire Cult has surfaced to make sure that the remaining 198 mutants don't live for much longer.
The artwork in this collection is above satisfactory and the story is less action, more thrill. The writing is uneven, hearing Cyclops saying "Suck this!" certainly surprised me.
Overall, I recommend buying this oversize hardcover!
