It's the Juggernaut b*@%$! Cain Marko has been through a lot. He's been on the side of the heroes before. Now he's workin for damage control in demolition. 

I really enjoyed this book. Juggernaut has always been one of my favorites. It's nice to see him being used more than just a mindless henchman. Though this book did follow a typical story plot we have seen before. There was a story in 'Uncanny X-Men' when Juggernaut came to the mansion and joined one of the teams. He befriended a young mutant Sammy Paré. This book had a lot of the same feel as that story. But the great thing is Juggernaut is a great character that works well when there is a teammate or young character to juxtapose him. 

I am wondering what the end result of this series will be. We have seen Juggernaut try and be reformed before. But then a new writer comes in and reverts him back to his original state. I love Juggernaut and hope that this wont be the case. He does mention Krakoa a few times and if he becomes a hero assisting mutants to get to the gates would be an awesome story. Juggernaut has the bones to be an anti-hero like Wolverine. I think this creative team sees that and hopefully that is where they are going to take him.

The art in this book was really awesome as well. Ron Garny has such stylistic art I'm not always a fan of it. But here it works perfectly. The way he made Juggernauts eyes glow was super cool. 

Overall 'Juggernaut' is an unstoppable first issue. It packs action, intrigue and heart. This is shaping up to be an outstanding series.
