As with any of Marvel's "Classic" collections, you will probably appreciate this graphic novel more if you originally read it when it was first released. Chris Claremont repeats his Uncanny X-Men-style team origin, with the New Mutants being a geographically diverse team (a Brazilian, a Scot, a Redneck, an American Indian, and a Vietmanese, in this case). There is some cheesy stuff in here and some overly dramatic dialogue--Professor X vowing that these kids will not be made into heroes and be put in harm's way is laughable, as in the same scene he outfits them in uniforms, gives them code-names, and tests them in the Danger Room--but this is the groundwork for many great stories to come, and thus is essential reading for any X-Men fan.

The slopes of An Morag, in the northwest highlands of Scotland...
Your powers have nothing whatsoever to do with Satan, Rahne. They are things of nature, no different from hands or heart or brain. And like all such talents, these must be shaped and honed.
