New X Men


Apr 3, 2006
Reaction score
Ok I saw the first post-house of M New X Men trade and am thinking about picking it up.

I like X-23's character, and it's at a very good price point as far as trades here go....but I am still a little hesitant.

Can someone give me a run down on the other team members? And villains? Are they actually interesting characters or more generic mutant types that won't be around in a few months? Is this first arc worth reading?

I am a little worried it will be little more than a show case for X-23 and nothing else....don't get me wrong, I love the character, but I am hoping it will be more team based, ie with other characters given time to shine.

So is it worth the risk?
It's not all about her. They've actually been very reserved with her useage. Th' HoM was pretty good, but really yer gonna wanna read all th' regular titles. It's a good book. Marvel's excellin' at young heroes these days.
if you like X-23, you should look into Marvel Team-Up, she was in two of the arcs
