The first half of the book is a Secret Empire crossover. Mutants have their own fascist state now in California. It's never fully explained why so many X-Men are acting out of character. Secondary mutations are reintroduced. (Wolfbane's is really dumb. She now has razor claws and can turn into a...

A collection of two stories.
The first is set during Secret Empire and it focuses on the Original 5 resisting the fascist state of Tian. It bounces off of a big company crossover in the best way, by using it as the background to tell its own story. And, it's a successful one: Bunn offers a great l...

[Read as single issues]
Secret Empire rocks the X-Men (because no one is safe from Marvel's event tidal wave), and then Beast's magical exploits come back to bite him in the ass, bringing the Goblyn Queen into the action too. They aren't kidding about that 'we hope you survive the experience!' thi...

This tie-in with Hydra has much going for it including watching Emma Frost be a proper villain again. It does interesting things with the Steve Rogers Hydra plot and gives the young Hank McCoy so proper character development. That said, the book can feel manic in that shifts of narrative ar...

As I expected this volume doesn't fare really much better than #1.
The first part takes place in Tian during Secret Empire and that's about the level of connection it has with the event.
It presents some interesting novelty with secondary mutations on reintroduced characters but is somewhat confu...

I think I'm running short patience for this series. I feel like the characters are being forcefully dragged back towards status quo, and I'm not thrilled about that. And adding a second AU character isn't inspiring, either.

We start off with the Blue Team seemingly on the run. They are not cooperating with the current political agenda, which is Emma Frost leading the mutant sovereign nation of New Tian in the time of Captain America's 'Secret Empire'. Sent out to stop Blue Team is a group of Hellions as well as Fire...

I picked up this volume after reading X-Men Blue Vol. 1: Strangest and realized pretty quickly that I was missing some vital information. The young time-displaced X-Men are awkwardly shoe-horned into the ill-conceived Secret Empire crossover where Hydra ends up governing all of the United Stated...

I really enjoyed this but I felt like in between volume 1 and 2 that there was something that I missed. I guess that I am going to have to do some research to see. The story however was interesting and I will be reading more of these. More X-Men were introduced in this volume, good bad I don't kn...

There are all these clear callbacks to Mutant X, but they aren't doing Mutant X.
I think it would be better if it were Mutant X.
Also, it's clear that Bunn really wants to finish his story from his Magneto series. Does anyone else want that story finished?
