Join THE ASTONISHING X-MEN, X-FACTOR, and the NEW X-MEN for the first steps towards the fate of the entire mutant race.

The remaining X-Teams gather to mourn the loss of one of their own. Not a member of one of their teams, or one of Xaviers other ventures, but a mutant like them. After the loss of over 90 percent of the population Homo-Superior has become an endangered species. Despite this mutant's relative anonymity and the mundane nature of his death, when the total of mutants numbers only in the thousands there is cause for concern when any mutant loses a life. Even Sebastian Shaw comes out of the shadows to pay his respect to this mutant boy.

Beast believes that there is not even enough genetic diversity to keep the species alive. Scott Summers feels some form of guilt for being unable to convince him to join the Institute. Mercury recalls the number of funerals they have been a part of, and she is not even a sophomore. Tension runs high in this one-shot, which is to be part one of the Endangered Species story-arch. With the entire species of mutants on the endangered list, what will become of our beloved heroes?

No hate, no love, just eh.I guess it fulfilled it's purpose by setting the stage, but the whole idea of what it's setting the stage for worries me.A cross-over summer event told in 8-page backup stories? Seriously?I am doing my best to reserve judgment until the individual parts start coming out.One thing I sorta liked was the art style. When I first opened the book, I immediately thought that Scot Eaton's art was similar to Steve Epting's style in C...

A Turning Point In Beast's Life 0

Beast did not always have blue fur. He experimented and thus had blue fur as a result. Beast for the most part has always been the brains of the X-Men. He even found a cure for the Legacy Virus. Beast is usually very loyal to the team but in truth has always wanted to be human . When Dr. Kavita Rao, found a “cure” for mutations, Beast kept a sample. This, of all people, really pissed off Wolverine. Wolverine told Beast that curing his mutation is the cheap way out. Know that mutants are almost ...

ITs good but has too much DON'T CARE in it 0

I really have to say overall i liked it, but there is a lot that could be added and removed! Like the death of the mutant was sad and all, but they emphasized it way too much-- it took like half to story up! I was lookin for a lil more adventure especially since it was double sized! and for the fact about the back up story.......... ewwwwwwwwwww The good thing about it though is it starts the endangered series out with a good kick! I like the fact that they brought in the new x-men in this issue...
