    Default New Mutants [02] : Space Jail Review and Spoilers

    So the jist is that as we see in the previews. They are found guilty.

    But turns out Cannonball and Smasher take them to Chandilar as their prisoners.

    There is a really good reunion moment with the New Mutants with Chamber and Mondo off to the side.

    I don't really wanna break down every page but the main points are:

    Gladiator wants Xandra to take the throne. A Nemarani should be on the throne.

    Gladiator sends Smasher (Cannonball's wife) on a mission to retrieve Deathbird.

    Proximity and need means that the New Mutants squad are tagging a long for this mission.

    Gladiator wants Deathbird to teach Xandra how to rule and all the customs.

    Xandra is the daughter of Xavier and Lilandra.

    So my review:

    I'm really digging the art more than I expected. The colorist is doing a great job. I don't know the name of the individual though.

    This is so heartwarming and charming. These characters are so much fun in this title.

    Just wish Magma was present.

    I gave no fawkes about the New Mutants. I've just always thought they were a cool generation of next X-Men that didn't really get the attention they deserved.

    They have so much chemistry and feels good to be a fly on the wall when they are around eachother.

    IDK who is writing what parts but if the characters in X-Men's first two issues had as much chemistry as the characters do in the first two issues of New Mutants I think I would like it way more. (Hopefully that run on sentence made sense)

    The story moves forward. And we know the Shiar/Xandra/Imperial Guard/Deathbird are going to be an important thing in an upcoming arc or event. Just my opinion.

    There must always be a Neramani on Chandilar.

    Gladiator send Smasher on a mission to retrieve Deathbird.

    Xandra is the daughter of Xavier and Lilandra.

    Do you think that this reads the same as X-Men though?

    Why would Gladiator choose Deathbird of all people to mentor Xandra. He above anyone should know how evil she is Xandra might as well be taught by a freaking DALEK!

    I kept telling people he clearly scripted #1. His humor and style always comes through.

    The Titans the Shiar mentioned are the same machines that the post-Humans would become in life 6?

    No. X-Men's dialogue is like a bot someone's programmed to try and mimic human emotion.
