The first arc of Joss Whedon and John Cassadys run. This X-title carries on where Grant Morrisons New X-Men (X-Men Vol. 2) left off, with the same cast of characters, minus Jean Grey. Basic plot is runs down like this. Professor Xavier has stepped down as headmaster of the school and left Cyclops and Emma Frost at the helm. Cyclops has decided that the team needs to lift its public profile by being seen as more of a "super-hero" team in something similar to the Fantastic Four mold. The team has to deal with a new X-Villian, the return of a comrade long thought dead and the potentilal resignation from the team of a long standing member when the worldwide announcement of a cure to the mutant gene is made. The story is very good, with Joss Whedon excelling with the interplay between his characters. John Cassadys art is some of the finest going around. All and all an outstanding book

Joss Whedon of buffy and angel fame teams up with planetary artist John Cassaday for their first 6 issue arc of astonishing x-men which became one of marvel's flagship x-men titles.

We are introduced to the new team, a new enemy created for the series and the return of a former x-men member who dies a few years back in the uncanny x-men run all this and they have to worry about a cure for the mutant problem.

Really worth a look and the writing is great and the art fantastic - i give it a good 9/10
