Comics Review: Uncanny X-Men #270

Written By Chris Claremont
Pencils By Jim Lee
Inks By Art Thibert & Scott Williams
Colors By Gynis Oliver

It's a mighty marvel event that didn't leave you wanting in the ending department. Okay, well maybe just a little bit. As you can tell Havok is on the cover and he's blowing up to holy hell the X-Men logo. Which I must say looks pretty sweet.

This issue starts off with Cable and his New Mutants teams training at the X-Mansion. When Jean Grey shows up with a much younger Storm (Thanks to Nanny) they get some training in with the New Mutants. The New Mutants are still pretty pissed because they along with the rest of the world thought they were dead. Which was pretty much Storms idea to keep the team in the dark so they could strike out at their enemies. Which now that I really think about it, seems like something the bad guys would do.

While Jean and Storm are having coffee and talking about what it's like to be dead then alive again they get attacked. (Isn't that the way it always is in these X-Men books?) By who you might ask? Why, it's just the Genosha Magistrates. Operating illegally on U.S. soil no less. Banshee, Cable and Forge are trapped underground in the X-Mansion training facility. Cable looks kid of odd here. I guess that's just because he's not drawn by his father/creator Rob (You don't need feet) Liefeld.

To add to the problems the group of Genoshan Magistrates are lead by Havok?!?! Say what? Somehow the bad guys now have Havok on their side. Storm and the New Mutants are taken down by Havok. They in turn are taken and transported by to Genosha. The ending has Cable with his weird glowing eye thing vow to "Get the people responsible." Yes Cable, that'll strike fear into the hearts of men. Next I review as issue of New Mutants by Rob Liefeld.It'll be great. Or not.
