So, I'm not a total idiot when it comes to X-Men, but I'm definitely no expert. Of all the (many) X-books out there, this one seems to appeal to me the most. I'm wondering, though, if picking this up without much back-knowledge would be a mistake.
(I know who the big hitters in the X-universe are and their primary motivations [Wolverine, Cyclops, Magneto, etc.], but I have no idea who, for example, Fantomex is).
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
