The world post Secret Wars 2015 in the All-New All-Different Marvel Comics era seems to be a dangerous place that is setting up a big confrontation between Marvel’s mutants and Inhumans.
Spoilers and review follow for Extraordinary X-Men #1 under the All-New All-Different Marvel banner.
Storm is leader of the Extraordinary X-Men and seems to be buckling under the pressure a la the Sixth Sense film from back in the day…
…she sees a dead person in Charles Xavier. Her silent confidante post Secret Wars 2015! Is Storm unwell?
Later in the issue, readers learn through a mind meld with younger time-displaced Jen Greay and Storm, what the Marvel Comics post Secret Wars 2015 status quo is for Mutants and Inhumans.
The Terrigan Mists that are triggering dormant genes and activiting Inhumans across the globe are killing / sterilizing mutants; “No More Mutants” in a new way.
The book ends with on one hand a cool moment and also an expected one.
Cool moment: Classic Sentinel vs. Extraordinary X-Men.
Expected moment: Here comes Old Man Logan.
Will Middle Aged Logan / Wolverine come back soon?
And, it is also cool that young time-displaced Jean Grey will be on the same Extraordinary X-Men team as Old Man Logan since when they were closer in age in the past they had a sexual attraction to one another. That kind of relationship with a much younger Jean Grey and much, much older Wolverine won’t happen in these pages, but will likely evolve the relationship to a father-daughter type one.
Extraordinary X-Men #1 ends on an Old Man Logan cliffhanger while Extraordinary X-men #1 features young Jean Grey on the cover.
Overall a fun issue by a solid creative team led by writer Jeff Lemire and penciller Humberto Ramos.
