More than ever, hatred and fear has made the world a dangerous place for mutants. But as the few remaining X-Men retreat into seclusion, a handful of mutant teenagers refuse to allow their destiny to be decided for them!

And no one is more concerned about their fate than Scott Summers, whose young shoulders must bear the heavy weight of the terrible acts committed by his adult counterpart. Cyclops is joined by three of his timetorn teammates – Beast, Iceman and Angel – as well as the All-New Wolverine, Kid Apocalypse and Oya.

Together, they’re heading out on the highway, looking for adventure, intent on writing their own futures! But when they encounter the baleful Blob, their road trip may end before it begins…

“Cyclops has been a dirty word for too long. Time to win it back” when Cyclops finally says that, it echoed my thoughts exactly. But this volume is about much more that just the restoration of the heroic Scott Summers; it tells the tale of familiar and less familiar young mutants becoming an iconic X-Men team.

It fleshes out a new Wolverine and other new team dynamics as this adolescent team grows in popularity in their hipster van equipped with a hungry little ‘Bamf’. This comic is a unique twist on the mutant heroes, giving a great starting point for fans, plus some great continuation on fan favorite characters.

The writer does a great job of weaving subtle commentary by teenagers from the 60’s on the social networking age and it’s fascinating lack of privacy and social skills. Each character has its own background, own struggles, dilemmas, controversy, and motivations, and each of them gets a chance to grow as the reader gets to know them.

This is a compelling start to the series, showcasing that the all new X-Men are here to take on everything the X-Books do best; big baddies, awesome powers, social issues, and personal trials… and have a blast doing it! Despite all the serious topics the young team hits on, the comic keeps a healthy vibe of comedy and lighthearted fun. A great read for old fans and new alike.
