The Danger Rooms wiki last edited by comicguy2 on 09/13/13 10:36AM View full history

The world now knows the Xavier Institute’s secret: It’s a home and training ground for mutants. The school opens its gates to them worldwide, accepting over one hundred new students, and the X-Men cope with sudden responsibility and public scrutiny. While anti-mutant protestors shout at the gates, the Xavier Institute forges ahead, determined to be a safe haven for homo sapiens superior.

One student in particular, the Beak, has trouble fitting in and Beast tries to ease his anxiety. Beast experiences anxiety of his own when Trish Tilby, unable to deal with his feline-like mutation, breaks up with him.

Jean seeks comfort from Wolverine due to her marriage troubles, but she asks for more than he can give.

Cassandra reveals that she has taken over Professor Xavier’s body. She viciously attacks Beast and forces the Beak to beat him senseless. Ignorant of the infiltration, the other X-Men proceed as usual while Cassandra plots. Through Professor Xavier, Cassandra organizes a trip through space with Empress Lilandra in a Shi’Ar spaceship, eager to cause destruction from the stars.

She also reveals that she's Charles genetic twin. His sister.

For example, imaginative looking mutants, a Shi`ar-space ship, a menacing expression etc. He also draws beautiful stuff: bit of a forest, pretty faces, a deer and so forth. So...outstanding art.Fun fact: No, I`m not kidding, it is outstanding. That`s The Beak, by the way, if you`re not f...

WARNING: The review below contains spoilers!This issue can be considered as an epilogue to the 'E is for Extinction' arc. After Charles' revelation to the world in the last number, lots of new mutants join the institute. It was really nice to see all kinds of different powers and I hope to see more of these teenagers in the future issues.New X-men #117 is basically made of cheesy, sad, cliche and considerably heavy scenes.Cheesy moments: Jean's talk with Logan was quite the dramatical scene. She...
