My Review:

I recommend you reading Giant-Size X-men 1! This issue is the unofficial introduction of the future new members of the X-men. However, you will only briefly taste their superpowers and origin, and they’re off on a mission.

There is also a twist to the story when they attempt to save the captured X-men and it was something that I did not expect.

A few small arguments happened among the new mutants in between chapters. It is also their first time working together as a team. Therefore, team co-operation is very poor.

Their team leader and original member of the X-men, Cyclops, managed to lead them to secure their first victory.

P.S. Can't seem to be able to find a physical copy of the Giant-Size X-men 1? It is no surprise here and or it might even be too costly, so what should you do? Let me suggest not only reading the Giant-Size X-men 1 but also along with other 496 Uncanny X-men issues.

Don’t you love it when something unexpected happens? For your information, the first print Giant-Size X-men 1 is not easy to find. Before i forget, this is my first review!! Enjoy! =)Happy Face

The captured X-men were rescued by Cyclops and the newly recruited mutants. They attacked and defeated the Krakoa by using Polaris power to push it to space.

More Juicy Details:

This issue shows how Professor Charles Xavier personally went to sought help from these new mutants. Most of their superpowers and a little of their history were displayed to give you a feel of it.

Cyclops and the newly recruited mutants head to the island of Krakoa to rescue captured X-men members such as Archangel, Marvel Girl, Iceman, Havok and Polaris. After setting the captured X-men free, they realized that the island is alive and wished to feed on their superpowers.

The new mutants will become the new members of the X-men in the next issue. Only Cyclops will stay to lead the X-men, while the original X-men will leave.
