After last week’s tour-de-force debut of Wolverine & The X-Men, Cyclops’ side had a lot to live up to, and thankfully it didn’t disappoint. Whilst this book wasn’t as lively and crazy as the other side’s, this was still damn good X-Men comics, and continues the great work Gillen had been doing on the book pre-Schism. Whereas Wolverine’s book is more of a retreat into the X-Men’s past, this is more forward-thinking, with Cyclops looking to the future and continuing to take the X-Men out of their usual status quo. The ‘Extinction Team’ is certainly an interesting grouping, apart from Storm these are all characters with a lot of inner conflict and grey areas, and it will be exciting to see whether Cyclops can keep the likes of Magneto and Jugger-Colossus on the side of good. I’ve been banging the drum about how Cyclops is the most interesting character in all of ‘Big Two’ comics for a little while now, and this only helps prove my point, he has so many things on his plate, and is just a bad-ass to boot. I must also tip my hat to Gillen’s take on Namor, which is awesome as hell. I’m not a big fan of Mister Sinister usually, but the visual of him transforming the Dreaming Celestial into his head was hilarious, and he’s providing a big enough threat to help Cyclops demonstrate his new team’s capabilities, so I’ll overlook my hate for him for now. Carlos Pacheco’s art was of course top quality, I hope he can keep it up, because sometimes he can fall behind and get a little rushed. So far ‘Regenesis’ is two for two, hooray for interesting X-books!

I'm worried that Sinister is also going to join the team by the end of this arc. I'm thinking he is trying to "help" Scott by creating a threat for him to beat.

Morrison really developed Cyke, Whedon took the next steps. Gillen has some big shoes to fill.

ps paragraphs are necessary if you want people to actually read what your write.

Not everyone feels the need for a separate paragraph for their own name.

That doesn't make the least bit of sense.

Learn to take constructive criticism and better grammar.

I don't need your criticism, constructive or otherwise. I know grammar, I just don't give a fuck about it on the Internet.

You clearly do. I didn't read it because of your poor grammar, I doubt I'm the only one.

Clean out that sandy vagina of yours.
