I haven't read an X book in years, but I picked this up and now I'm buying the past trades because this issue was pretty legit 
I feel like I should be reading more than just Siege and ASM from Marvel so maybe X-Men will be the series I pick up

Ohhh, Babs is wearing new glasses. Nice frames.
 
I believe Magento would put his life on the line for Kitty out of his own pride. He's so sure in his own ability that he might of overestimated himself. Even what seems like an unselfish act done with the motive of making one's self look better still makes it a selfish act.
 
It is a good characterization for Magneto. I think Scott's worries are well founded. Magneto is basically pulling back a threat to the Earth without warning anyone. Sort of like suddenly finding out a mac truck is driving toward your home at 120mph.
 
I'll be interested to see how Emma reacts to this. Seeing how Emma had a lot of personal guilt about the fate of Kitty. In those final moments the two did have a sense of reconciliation.

Ive wanted to start reading xmen for awhile now but it seems way to deep in the story to jump in and care about whats happening. How far back in the trades should i start? Cuz Magneto living with the xmen is CRAZY. I want to know what happened. 
And is Uncanny Xmen the same?

Posted by Illyana Rasputin

It was definitely bittersweet. I can see Kitty's condition lasting for a spell, but I don't see her perishing anytime soon.

@advocatefish:   And is Uncanny Xmen the same?  Same as what?

Kitty's condition is just a retread from Mutant Massacre...

i think im crazy... because i always viewed Babs as a Kitty Fan... i dunno why....
 
and what does she say... "No i dont... but i love magneto"
WOw
 
im stupid... hehehehe
 
II. Maybe he's doin this for that magical Bullet... not jus being the Leader... i mean its a magical bullet
 
III. for the people asking how did kitty survive without food or water... its a magical bullet... use ur imagination... hehehehehe
 
 
IV. i loved how Cy was already planning as soon as he found out what Magneto was doing... He quickly Planned for the worse but hoped for the best... Like I do... YAY... Cy is awesome
 
 
V. I really Hope... Magneto leads the team... or Emma... and Cy leaves the X-Men to find himself... to find his identity without the x-men(aka get his own solo series)...

Wow, never seen Babs nerd out of a character as much as in this one.  
 
Guessing you liked House of M (mainly the Civil War arc)?

Start reading from the Utopia Dark Avengers/X-Men Crossover... it's really good!

WOW!  Whilce is back on X-Men?  I gotta check this out, he was a great counterpart to Jim Lee when Lee was doing X-Men.  He gave Iceman wrist wrings when the original five were still X=Factor, someone tell me if he does it again

Ugh Babs how did u like the art? i was totally disappointed with this book on so many levels. . . the facial expressions in some of the panels totally ruined it for me. i'd much prefer Dodson's art for this book. I felt this could've been sooo much better :(. i did love the writing though and thought it was well written but this  new art really took away from the book. i mean look at some of the faces in some of the panels. just my opinion.

Babs=Clark Kent's long lost sister???^_^
Posted by the_fallen11

I liked this issue, Magneto is setting himself up to be a leader, real big power struggle between Cyke and Mags. I did enjoy the part with emma, very good stuff. 
although I must say that I hate Warren in the Uncanny title, I know he's acting all happy-go-lucky to keep the fact that he's a killer again on the down low. but....man he's just so opposite from his X-Force "self"

We'll have to wait and see on that one.

@Dr. Detfink: That's what I wanted to talk to Babs about but not on camera to spoil anything.

Oh, Portacio is back. That´s great!

Posted by Freddy.Mercurial

has anyone stopped to think this may have more to do with the giant bullet than kitty pryde???  hmmmmm...

Posted by mimschkin

Wow, that art is a MASSIVE step up.

Posted by 00 Raiser

They found a winner in the art department on this one.

Posted by danhimself

best issue of Uncanny X-men in a loooooong time

Posted by warlock360

I beleive that the last panels of the issue were meant to explain magnetos actions without telling the x-men about them. Re-read it and you'll figure out what i mean. (the alien stuff)

Posted by warlock360

Absolutely loved this issue in everyway btw. Also shows Magneto's extreme  willpower.

Posted by CATMANEXE

i read it.

Posted by pixelized

Is there a reason why Cecilia Reyes was plucked from Obscurity, without explanation, to play doctor? Did we forget about Elixir?

Posted by Omega Ray Jay

Really enjoyed it. Also enjoyed the filler at the back, thought that was really good though i must admit i to thought it was a S.H.I.E.L.D Preview :P

Edited by THEBlaqueBasterd

Im TOTALLY of course here.. & I might even be totally outa line.. but I know jus a LITTLE somethin about body language.. So someone tell me if im the ONLY one that can see's that from the "signs" in this UNSCRIPTED... Babs is TOTALLY attracted to G-Man....?.. No? ...Just me..? No one else..? Hmmm... Forget  said anything.....
 
 
So yehh......... rilly good issue.. ¬_¬
 
 
(p.s. Havent read this issue yet so just wonderin.. Are they settin this up to lead to a Magneto Martyrdom? Where he ACTUALLY sacrifices himself?)

Posted by ninjasquirrel01

Babs hates Kitty Pride?!?
You know, whenever somebody mentions a female non-bat-family character Babs says that she hates her.

Posted by courtney12490

all i can say is thank god dodson isn't on it anymore. i can't stand the way that all the girls look sooo similar. if you have ever compared the cover of countdown to final crisis issue 9, Wonder Girl (Cassie) looks exactly like what he's been drawing Emma Frost as.

@G-Man:  who's responsibility is it to change the books on the wall?

Posted by G-Man
@danhimself: I take the blame and credit for it. I try to get the snappy covers showing in the video but sometimes there's a rush. Also the way they're up isn't the best so I'd rather do it in case things get messed up. That way I can't get upset at anyone for messing up the display system. But surprisingly, it doesn't take that long.

Kitty and Magnito have history together. They are both Jewish, I remember an old issue where he was trying for world domination and he thought he had killed Kitty. He remembered the Holocaust and left felt with guilt of what he had done to Kitty and what he was planning to do to the world. Magnito is complicated and often misjudged.  I was not surprised when I heard he was helping her.

  1) I'm glad kitty is back.

2) The art is bad.

3) Fraction is the worst thing that ever happened to uncanny.

Posted by xerox_kitty

I agree that Whilce Portacio's art far outclasses both Land & Dodson put together.  However, I think you're giving Fraction too much credit.  I was ready to buy this issue, but when I looked at it in the shop I was so appalled by what I was reading I felt tainted just holding it.  The story & the 'solution' to the Kitty Pryde lost-in-space 'problem' were so bad that I'm not willing to pay the cover price... not even for Whilce Portacio's art.

i love kitty pryde! :)

Posted by TheGoon

Wait a minute. They were tracking the bullet right? So how come no one went after it? 
The X-Men have the means to pull it off, it's not like they never went to space before.

Actually Emma was a villain from 1980 until mid 1994, She's been a hero since late 94, so most of her storyline life has been as a hero.

I kind of wish this guy was staying for the next issue in second coming. i know you guys like terry dodson, but i donno. i find his work a bit plain.
