Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This manifestation of The Uncanny X-Men is the post-AvX team of Scott Summers, Emma Frost, Magneto and Magik, very much fugitives and revolutionaries with Scott as nominal leader, although his word is not law. In addition are new mutant recruits to the cause, most of whom were introduced in the `All New X-Men' arcs but with more depth.
This volume deals with the following themes; the establishing of Scott Summers as a revolutionary icon to new mutants and their human sympathisers, the internal conflicts following the latest Phoenix Episode and the ramifications of the dilution or waywardness of the powers of four once very physically powerful mutants. In addition we see the settling in of the new mutant recruits, a set-to with The Avengers and the verbal confrontation with the mutant `establishment' at the Jean Grey School previously shown in `Here To Stay' but now front this team's perspective.
The story travels in a fairly linear format each theme woven in quite skilfully; the scenes at The Jean Grey School mostly centre on discourse between Emma Frost and The Stepford Cuckoos. I will say no more on this in case I release a dread spoiler, only just to add the occasional use of black and white illustrations for the background is very effective. The Avengers intention is to apprehend this troublesome team (that's all you get-spoilers y'know).
The recruits to Summers' cause are a nice balance of the confused, frightened, worried and cocky. Tempus the `aussie' girl with the power to affect local time is probably the most level-headed of the group at the present, but it's early days.

Uncanny X-men once again starts again from vol 1 following the events of AVX. here we follow Cyclops leading his team of Magneto, Emma Frost and Magik. With new updated outfits and a harder edge to cyclops who acts more like the Magneto of old he willing to do what it takes to protect new mutants. it is very well written with good play offs between the team members. this is an excellent start to this series! very enjoyable!

Format: Paperback
All-New X-Men has a storyline where original X-Men are brought to our present and acclimate to the strange new world as present day X-Men deal with the events of Avengers Vs X-Men; Wolverine and the X-Men has a storyline where Wolverine starts a new school in the style of Xavier's original and comedic shenanigans ensue. Both of these series are successful in their own way - they have storylines that enable them to drive forward with plot or slow things down and let the characters mingle with one another to great effect. They not only have options but ideas and fresh new takes on classic characters.

Uncanny X-men - this series' storyline sees Cyclops and his group of mutant rebels recruiting new mutants for their own school. On the face of it, it should be a good series like the other two big X-titles but it's not. For a start, they only recruit one new mutant in the entire book - Fabio Medina aka Goldballs. I'm not going to complain about this character because I think he's amazing - really. Goldballs: the dude manifests and fires golden volleyballs(I think?). Love it! I'll bet dollars to donuts Jason Aaron brainstormed that for inclusion in his own series and Marvel gave it to Bendis because it fit in with Uncanny's storyline more.

What else - they fight some Sentinels, which is your basic template for an X-story; the Avengers show up (and I had this creeping sense of deja vu that we were going to see more of that crud known as AVX but thankfully didn't); Scott and co. briefly visit the Jean Grey school. Besides the Sentinels, they don't fight anyone - they just meet characters, talk about how Scott killed Xavier, and they walk away. What is this series' storyline? Scott being the leader of a new mutant revolution. So why don't we see any of that being developed?

Format: Paperback
The story running through issues #1-5 of the Uncanny X-Men (Volume 3) is collected as Uncanny X-Men: Revolution (Uncanny X Man). The new Uncanny X-Men team is setting up a new school (hidden in Canada), recruiting new students and poaching from the Jean Grey School, and beating the Avengers in even less time than it took in AvX, thanks to a new mutant. There are a couple of strands to the story, as we follow the new young recruits from their point of view; we follow the grown up X-Men from their point of view - Magneto is "up to something", Emma is recovering from losing her psychic powers, and in fact all the Phoenix-affected are having trouble with their powers; and Illyana is suffering from an infestation of Dormammu in her Limbo dimension... and SHIELD and the Avengers are on their case.

This is an interesting, well illustrated and very readable new series, and I look forward to more. We have many old issues to deal with here, as well as the consequences of the Phoenix event, and several new mutants to add to the mix.
