Format: Paperback
To balance the ludicrous (and entirely unargued) 1 star review, and also to redress the overall star rating - why 1 star (as of Jan 2013) when of 7 reviews so far most are 4 or 5? Anyway, an excellently drawn and almost intellectual piece of work - though with humouir. It's not "black ops Wolverine" etc, but a return to the more cosmic "FF" style of early X Men. Refreshing and vibrant.

Format: Hardcover
The stories from Uncanny X-Men issues #1-4 are collected as Uncanny X-Men By Kieron Gillen Vol. 1 (Uncanny X-Men (Marvel)). They consist of a 3-part story involving Mr Sinister's theft of a Celestial and his attempt to conquer the world again, and a single-issue story involving a member of the Phalanx held prisoner by Mr Sinister, who eventually escapes and is hunted down by the X-Men. The main story is a big spectacular battle story, interleaved with lots of dialogue, which begins with Cyclops forming a new X-team - the extinction team, to take on the really big extinction-level threats. Fortunately, Mr Sinister presents such a threat quite quickly, and Cyclops is quick to take advantage of it. It is obvious with hindsight that this is the beginning of the hubris that leads to the AvX event, and Mr Sinister even warns Hope that the phoenix is in her future. It is a very entertaining story, with good scripting and artwork. The single issue story, told from the view of the isolated Phalanx member was less interesting to me, however.

I read a library copy of the paperback.
This was the revamp before the last revamp (or was it the one before that…?) – Anyway it does work as a jumping on point.
Most of the main characters are known to me and I’m not a recent reader of everything X-Men – just an odd observer.
Cyclops christens a new team his Extinction Squad – set up to deal with ‘extinction level’ threats. –Apparently that’s different to his X-Force group –who are more black-Ops.
The team are…Magneto, Emma Frost, Namor, Hope, Magick, Danger and Colossus
Magneto I keep waiting to turn on the team and I don’t like this soft and soggy version of him – some villains really should remain as villains (Magneto/ Loki/ Dr Doom/DocOck 0- there’s no end to them!)
Emma Frost I’ve never liked and I never will but her dialogue keeps the story fizzing at least.
Namor – how the mighty have fallen – he’s one of my all-time favourite characters but he’s a pale imitation of himself in the X-Men.
Hope – I don’t like the prominence she’s given and the name ‘Summers’ aside from the fact that her powers are just way too vague and all-encompassing, if they wanted Jean Grey they should bring back Jean Grey (kind of like Bendis does/did later…)
Magik, probably the least annoying of this entire group, she’s grown up a lot and deserves her place.
Danger – if I understand this correctly she/it is the personification of the old Danger Room…? Who came up with that rubbish?
Colossus – he’s one of the ‘originals’ as far as I’m concerned and it is great to see him around , but all this link to the Juggernaut powers has passed me by – wasn’t he powerful enough, I’m not sure what he gains other than another reason to be the glum softy he always is.

2 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Alan the Kaz on 9 April 2013
Format: Paperback
I stopped collecting X-Men comics during Matt Fraction's run, after it became painfully clear to me that I hadn't actually enjoyed them for a long time (aside from a handful of exceptions here and there) and that I was only buying them out of habit. Even before the Disney acquisition, Marvel was regressing back to the days of over-reliance on gimmicks and "events", and it seemed to me that original creatively free runs on a core X-title (like those of Grant Morrison and Joss Whedon) had become a thing of the past. But I still love the X-Men, and not too long ago I decided to research into what I'd been missing out on since I stopped following them. Evidently, it seemed, I'd not missed much (just more gimmicks and "events"), but I'd been hearing repeatedly that Kieran Gillen's run on `Uncanny X-Men' was actually genuinely good (Gillen being a writer who's independent comics I've greatly enjoyed, and heard much good about his Marvel output in general). I recently had a quick chat with Gillen at a comic convention, where he told me about what he'd been doing on `Uncanny', and I got the distinct impression that he felt the same way as I did about the general trend of X-Men comics in recent years. So I very excitedly purchased the first volume of his run, got him to sign it, and went on my merry way eager to read it. Sadly, I was very disappointed...

After a few pages of set-up, the action begins, and it doesn't stop for the whole of the volume. This book is very much a mutant slugfest of the kind that put me off X-Men comics in the first place. If that's your thing, then by all means you'll probably agree with the general consensus that this is a great book.

While Wolverine & the X-Men is a fun read full of intresting characters (new and old) this was a bit of a bore.

Personally, I am glad Gillen is leaving the X-books.
