The The Tomorrow People wiki last edited by X35 on 04/25/13 09:23AM View full history

The place is a world very much like ours. The time is now. The phenomenon is genetic mutation. It is a time of change. Humanity now faces mutants, a mysterious sub-species that is gifted with strange and frightening powers. Hidden among the population, they are feared and hated by their human cousins. As rumors and urban myths about their existence spread across the world, the U.S. Government creates its own initiative to deal with this threat: the Sentinel Project. Meanwhile, two men wage a secret war for the hearts and minds of young mutants everywhere. Charles Xavier has recruited a cadre of students including Cyclops, Jean Grey and Beast that call themselves the "X-Men". But there are others out there, living in fear, struggling to deal with what they are: Ororo Munroe, Bobby Drake... and another, more dangerous mutant named Logan. Simultaniously, the terrorist known only as Magneto has assembled "The Brotherhood," a militant group dedicated to the overthrow of human authority. A war is on the horizon, and these amazing young men and women will decide the future of all humanity!?

As the Sentinels are unleashed upon Los Angeles and Magneto's Brotherhood of Mutants threatens the existence of man, Jean Grey (Marvel Girl) is busy recruiting other young mutants to join her and Cyclops as X-men at Professor Xavier's Institute For Gifted Children. Their first mission? Save the mutant runaway Bobby Drake from a Sentinel attack in New York. Although successful, they also manage to attract the interest of mutant separatist Magneto, who decides to send Wolverine to assassinate Professor X.

An interesting beginning for the Ultimate X-Men comic book 0

Interesing story (if you're an X-Men fan like me, you'll know the story of the book before you even read it), redefined characters (Magneto especially; Bobby Drake wasn't handled well in this book; there was no need for Wolverine to be in it so early), art (the art was okay, since the story contained some gore - Millar's trademark). A nice beginning for the series. As this is my first review, I will keep it short. I will be reviewing the Ultimate Spider-Man comic book, the Ultimates and X-Men. N...

Brilliant Start 0

Nice cover. Love a man with claws and a goatee. Bonus points.As for crushed mutant and his dog? A bit graphic, but nicely done. Ah, the dark era of supremacists and sociopathic nation-state leaders, who could've asked for a better lookout? Loved Trask's short coming, Magneto was portrayed rather nicely in this one. Introduction ceremony was cute, and did I mention I loved Jean's hair-do? Bobby resue mission was intersting, and freeze the Sentinel in mid-fall waas done quite well. Crazy!Hormonal!...

A good beginning 0

The opening page of this issue was very well edited,written and draw as well.The Sentinels attack the mutants.A poor mutant guy even dies.A sentinel crushes him with his dog.Than we skip to the "television" where Bolivar Trask claims that he'll hunt down the mutants after that appears Magneto and Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch can be seen briefly.After the intro in San Diego in a  billiard bar we can see Hank McCoy who's being threaten by a guy,but without a problem, Hank get's rid of him.Outside...
