Once again thrown right into the mix. No idea where any of these issues line up with in the show. The team’s expanded a lot including more characters I’d never met anywhere else before, Tabitha Smith/Boom Boom, Roberto de Costa/Sunspot, and Sam Guthrie/Cannonball!
My favorite issues in this volume were definitely seven and eight. Seven sees Hank McCoy come to the school. He’d been a teacher at the high school until his secondary mutation hit. Now he teaches physical education at the institute and you get all the kids playing baseball in the danger room. This is the issue that you first see the group of new students, Rahne Sinclair, Jubilation Lee, Tabitha Smith, Roberto de Costa, Jamie Madrox, Sam Guthrie and Bobby Drake.
Issue eight, is the X-Men rescuing Warren Worthington III from the Morlocks. I guess not the first time that Scott and Rogue had met Warren. That must have been something that happened in the show. Warren doesn’t end up coming to the Institute, but he does ask Jean on a date which leaves Scott a bit crestfallen.
These issues are all snapshot issues. There’s not really a cohesive plot connecting them. For cohesive plot refer to the show itself. The first three issues in volume one had cohesion as they were set prior to the start of the show, but issues four through nine are really just one shots sprinkled throughout the show. I’m sure if you’ve seen the whole show you could probably fit in where they’re supposed to go, but as someone who’s only seen the first few episodes, I can’t. It really makes me want to go find somewhere to watch the rest of the show though. I was upset when it got taken off Netflix.
You can find volume two here.
