Astonishing X-Men takes the style of the X-Men movies, mixes it with the wit of Buffy and holds it together with the classic flavor that made the X-Men famous. This is the perfect comic for new readers, old readers, returning readers and learning readers. It's just that good. Cyclops and Emma Frost re-form the X-Men with the express purpose of "astonishing" the world. But when breaking news regarding the mutant gene unexpectedly hits the airwaves, will it derail their new plans before they even get started?
