Ultimate X-Men V1 TP The Tomorrow People Millar NM 1st print

Collects 1-6. This is what the beginning of the first X-Men movie should have been! It’s fast paced, exciting, action packed, and there are several mutants introduced almost immediately. It’s the power of numbers, the variety of mutants, that keeps the story lines interesting. The creativity is what makes us love the X-Men; they have powers we wish we had. The “Ultimate” series is a fresh start for young readers who weren’t around when it all began. One can jump in without knowing a thing about the comics, and get instantly hooked. Mark Millar and Adam Kubert do a great job of drawing the reader in. The wonderful artwork and masterful storyline provide a near perfect introduction to the series. It starts somewhere in the middle when considering the grand scheme of things, but that’s just to draw the attention. The mutants, a group of people with different DNA than normal humans, born with fantastic powers, are beign rounded up by good guys (X-Men), bad guys (Brotherhood of Evil), and killers (Sentinels). Who gets to the mutants first? What follows is a battle between the goals of two men, Charles Xavier, the leader of the X-Men, and Magneto, the leader of the Brotherhood of Evil. Xavier believes humans and mutants can live in harmony; Magneto feels that humans are inferior and mutants should rule. Vol. 1: The Tomorrow People, is the first installment of the series; so, it follows the recruitment phase for the X-Men. It runs through the story of how the X-Men were formed, as Jean Grey, Storm, Cyclops and others make up the original squad.The story follows the recruiting of The X-Men (Jean Grey, Cyclops, Storm, The Beast, Iceman, Colossus, & Wolverine), and their first confrontation with Magneto. (And what a confrontation it is!) As some mutants are saved from Sentinels, Magneto suspects that they have been saved by a group of mutants that Xavier controls, and he’s right. He’s angry, and he’s not going to take it lying down; he’s sending in someone to assassinate Xavier. The plot thickens…
