Men plots are always threatening, in volume 1 no less not using Magneto giving Charles Xavier the balls to kill Frank Quitely is awesome I love his stuff, but why does everyone look Asian Seriously The character design is a bitoff Wolverine is really husky And Beast is very feline and Victorian Basically Beauty and the Beast Professor X looks like, I dunno, a Bond villain The plot revolves

Beauty and the Beast Professor X looks like, I dunno, a Bond villain The plot revolves around Cassandra Nova, a mysterious telepath who s hellbent on killing all life, mutants and humans included Like all telepaths she gets in people s heads, but there s a slight and much needed twist There are also crazy evolutionary sentinels that look super creepy, like sentinel heads with pistols poking out of them So an interesting if weird start to this series Originally reviewed at Bookwraiths Reviews The New X Men E is for Extinction was written by Grant Morrison and illustrated by Frank Quitely with Leinil Francis Yu and Ethan Van Sciver helping out When I picked this one up back in 2002, I was an old time X Men fan one who had cut his teeth on mutant madness during the twilight days of Claremont

Men E is for Extinction was written by Grant Morrison and illustrated by Frank Quitely with Leinil Francis Yu and Ethan Van Sciver helping out When I picked this one up back in 2002, I was an old time X Men fan one who had cut his teeth on mutant madness during the twilight days of Claremont and Byrne s famous run on the title, retained my fandom for years even with Claremont s everconvoluted plots and glorified in the tremendous artwork of people like Marc Silvestri and Jim Lee until the Age of Apocalypse in the mid 90s made me finally walk away So when I read Morrison s take on the X Men, I wanted to be blown away by it and turned back into an X fan Unfortunately, I wasn t This graphic novel was okay but not muchthan that The story setup here is that a new super villain has shown up her name being Cassandra Nova Not only is she some super telepath, but she is also an identical genetic clone of Charles Xavier and embodies a new type of evolutionary advance in the human race Ms Nova is quite frankly a dynamic leap in homo sapiens superior, a.k.a as mutants, so in other words, she is a mojo bad ass Add to this the fact that she wishes to annihilate every mutant on the planet, and it is clear that the X men have got a major problem on their hands.Like all good stories, Morrison hasthan one plot line going on here, so Super Nova isn t all the fun We have lots of relationship issues among the team Henry a.k.a Beast is dealing with his continued mutations Scott is acting withdrawn and a tad bit crazy after his recent possession by a villain Naturally, he and Jean are having problems Emma Frost comes on board the team after a huge cataclysm on Genosha, and she instantaneously begins seducing Scott Wolverine is lurking around, and Professor Xavier is his normal self Oh, and we have this crazed New Age cult leader who is preaching that mutant organs should be used to turn regular humans into super humans What Yeah I don t know how that would actually work either, but I m not a scientist.Anyway, the action begins in this one very earlier and just gets ratcheted upandas the tale goes along We have sentinels killing mutants Mutants killing mutants Humans trying to kill mutants, so they can get their body parts to become mutants And by the end, we have a major twist in the story that nicely sets up graphic novel number 2 Imperial As for the art, I cannot complain at all It was top notch and told the story extremely well Each panel was tailored to convey the mood of the characters as well as their inner struggles or tone of voice Many times I found myself already knowing what type of encounter I was about to read just by viewing the art, which means that the artist is doing a great job in my world All in all, E is for Extinction had all the elements of an interesting graphic novel great team, lots of action, and several plots going on Like always, Morrison gives his readers a great villain this time it is Cassandra Nova, who is powerful enough, devious enough and bloodthirsty enough to carry the story Even the team dynamics and Whoa is me, I m a mutant plots were somewhat interesting As for the art, I can t say anything bad about it However, this graphic novel fell flat for me in 2002 and again in my 2014 re read Perhaps I am not a Morrison fan though I have enjoyed other books he has written or perhaps I treasure the old X Men of my youth too much Whatever it is, however, this graphic novel was a bit schizophrenic in its story telling for my taste, so much so that even the great ending can t save it.Like I always say though don t take my word for this graphic novel, read it and see what you think This is the beginning of Grant Morrison s reboot of the X Men, released in 2001 I have never read the original comics but have seen all the movies and love them I know some of what happened in the older comics and this is all brand new Morrison kills sixteen million mutants in like the third issue So he s pretty much kicking continuity s ass.The villain in this one is Professor X s twin sister, separated at birth Jean Grey and Cyclops are here, along with Wolverine, Dr McCoy, and Emma Fr This is the beginning of Grant
