I liked it, but there was a lot of just…weird stuff going on. Maybe not weird so much, as multiple stories that all felt important and disjointed at the same time. Ugh. Sorry, I’m not sure that makes sense.

Scott is such a dick.
After a kid fucks up on a mission (nothing malicious, by the way), Scott tosses him out on the street. Well, back at his home. But how safe is that, really?
I have a feeling this decision did not endear him to the other teens, and somehow this will come back to bite him in the ass.

Magneto goes on a trip to Madripoor, and finds out who is behind the surge in the mutant population there. Then he goes bat-shit crazy and tries to kill off some old friends.
So. Yeah, I guess he’s getting his own title now.

Kitty sticks her hand through Scott’s head, threatens to end him, cries about the loss of Xavier, and then they hug it out.

Emma takes one of the mutant kids under her wing, and teaches him the importance of his (uncool/lame) powers. I can’t remember his name, but he’s the one that turns into other people, you know?

Ok, I like the art, but it can get a little crazy, and that makes it hard to understand what’s going on in the panels. It’s not ugly, just…too much? Sometimes. Most of the time it’s great, but then it gets all nutty.
Ack! I’m just not explaining any of this very well.
The story was good, but it felt kinda schizo and all over the place, too.
I’m still looking forward to reading the next volume, though.
