Guardians of the Galaxy/All-New X-Men: The Trial of Jean GreyGuardians of the Galaxy/All-New X-Men: The Trial of Jean Grey by Brian Michael Bendis

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

If all crossovers were this much fun, I wouldn’t be such a whiner baby about them!

So, the Shi’ar Empire (specifically, Gladiator) has decided that poor little Jean Grey needs to stand trial for the sins of her future self.
Dear God, has he never heard the saying, Don’t poke the bear?
Guess not.
So, Gladiator pokes the bear.
And the bear pokes back.

Of course, by the time we get to that part, even most of the other Shi’ar don’t feel sorry for Gladiator.
But I’m getting ahead of myself.
The story switches back and forth between the (All-New) X-Men and the Guardians of the Galaxy. Each issue compliments the previous one, while still telling a coherent story (my opinion, of course).
GotG is such a fun tongue-in-cheek title that I think it kept what could have been a melodramatic story…fun.
Peter & Company find out about a plot to kidnap Jean, and race to earth to stop it.
Oops. They, unfortunately, arrive a bit too late.
So, they graciously agree to take the rest of the (All-New) X-Men halfway across the galaxy to rescue their friend.
And that kind of fucks up Gladiator’s plan, because everything hinges on the fact that Earthlings don’t have access to interstellar space travel.
Hi-jinks ensue, things happen, and the (Marvel) universe may never be the same.

The future is changing.
And I can’t wait to see what happens next!
