I was spoiled for the fake-out, for which I'm grateful; I really didn't need to be grimacing at the handling of certain ethical issues. All of the characters had nice moments, but I'm frustrated by the fact that I only really care about two them (Dust and Blindfold); Laura's in X-Force (which makes her hard to slash with Dust), Hellion's god knows where (Wikipedia seems to think he'll turn up in X-Force too), and apparently both the Cuckoos and Surge turned up in San Fran at the beginning of Secret Invasion? (I'm assuming their involvement was not substantial enough to justify my purchasing the trade; anyone have data on the issue?) Which I guess is part of the nature of the X-Men; teams break up and re-form, but the strength of New X-Men for me, under the hands of both Morrison and Kyle/Yost, was that by focusing on the school a fuller breadth of human relationships could be rendered, showing the teenaged characters actually being teenagers and giving minor characters more room to show up. I'm far less interested in this Teen Titans-esque thing they've got going on here; giving me yet another team book, just this time with teen characters, really doesn't do it for me. ( )
