Things for the Marvelous X-Men are no longer happy and content as they once were. Their beliefs, whether their own or someone elses imposed on them, are going to be challenged. This book while not as strong as the first issue does end really strong and takes a hard philosophical tone by the end of the book.

I really did enjoy this book even with it's slow start. We get to see how much the Marvelous X-Men are not really much more than the face of a forced idealism upon the world. That with Apocalypse and the X-Tracts challenging those ideals things start to fall apart, and members of the team start questioning the world which can't be good for the man trying to hold it all together.

Also as in previous books in the event, several mutants are getting flashes of another life, and some of the Marvelous X-Men now are getting those flashes as well.  Are we seeing the first few cracks in this "perfect" world? Only time will tell but I am excited to see things start to shake up.

This book continues to be one of the strongest in the event, and we are seeing how all the books are now intertwined with each other. So much so that this event is one that you will need to collect all the issues of each mini-series or you could potentially be a little lost. Unfortunately not all the books are up to the level of this mini-series and that makes Age of X-Man not as engaging as Marvel was probably hoping for.

Overall Marvelous X-Men is a great fun book with a philosophical tone being threaded throughout. I highly suggest picking it up and seeing how things continue to fall apart for these merry mutants.
