Book Summary: JEAN GREY and her team of X-Men are trying to save the world…but one mutant could spoil that for everyone. When an old friend of Jean's is corrupted and turned against her, will Jean have to do the unthinkable?
Book Review: Our story thus far...
Jean has been resurrected; and in turn, has rejected the Phoenix Force. In doing so, Jean has set out on her own course. Her first order of business is to find herself a team. Her second order is to unite both humans and mutants together and the only way of hoping to do this is to go through the United Nations. Unfortunately one of the Ambassador's minds is hijacked and she comes out attacking Jean Grey before her head explodes. With the world watching, Jean is accused of the assassination and she is given no choice but to accept the offer of sanctuary in Wakanda. Despite this, Jean continues her work in saving mutants from the hatred being directed at them.
Our Story Now....
As Jean and her team return from a mission with a Sentienal in tow, they find themselves face to face with a possessed Weather Goddess.
Jean tries to probe Storm's mind but there is something there that keeps Jean from pressing further. She saves Storm but now realizes that even in Wakanda they are in danger. So the operation moves itself to Namor's home.
Of course what is an X-Men Red issue without a small cameo of our villain and the course she is taking.
This series is getting really good. Not only do we have a villain that is front and center but she is also causing tons of problems already for Jean.
As for Jean, she has no idea who is behind all of this havok. Cassandra has made sure that any probing Jean does there is no trace of her.
I am really enjoying this series and I cannot wait to see which direction this series goes.
