This is how the X-Men: First Class series should be done.  As a one-off issue that dispenses with any pretentions to maintaining continuity, this is a fun collection of short stories done in a variety of art styles that pays homage to a number of classic science fiction films. There is a wraparound story about Beast investigating extra-terrestrials in an X-Files homage.  Great fun - especially picking out the dozens of references to other comics, movies and TV shows!...
