Well, they should call these guys the “All New, All Different” X-Treme X-Men as writer Greg Pak and artist Stephen Segovia spin this new book directly out of Astonishing X-Men. This book joins past titles like Exiles and Mutant X in taking us on a journey out of the main Marvel universe/dimension and exploring new worlds. The cast, which includes new takes on Wolverine, Emma Frost, and Nightcrawler is inspired- finally a way for Wolverine to be on another team, yet done in a believable way. With the main Nightcrawler still six feet under, I’d jump at the chance to see any version of him still among the living. I wonder who else might join them? Blink? X-Man? Maybe in their journey they can pass by one of the alternate reality futures that Bishop is stuck in and take him a long for the ride as he looks for redemption (it will not happen, but wouldn’t it be fun?).
