This volume contains a three-issue story, "First Foursaken," that is the story to which Claremont's run on the Uncanny X-Men: The New Age volumes was leading up to. In that respect, it is a bit of a let-down. Really, all of those appearances by Jamie Braddock, the resurrection of Psylocke, etc., for this? It was not as big an event as I would have predicted based on the build-up. However, it was a neat little story filling in some history on Jamie Braddock and, dare I say it, retconning him as not such a bad guy after all. Sure, he's kooky, but he's got a good heart. To say any more would be to spoil the story. This volume also includes an Annual, which is the conclusion to all those snippets of Storm (and Wolverine, wasn't he there too?) in Africa. It is split between being a retrospective of Storm's life and a battle between the X-Men and mutant-killing African terrorists. The artwork in this volume is uneven, with Chris Bachalo and Roger Cruz on the first three issues, and Clayton Henry on the Annual. ( )
