Another average offering
X-Men: Gold (2017-) #1 - Marc Guggenheim,Ardian Syaf

Maybe I'm just not into the X-Men, or maybe I'm disillusioned by Marvel's statements - about diversity in particular, by Marvel's Secret Empire stunt, or whatever.   This also didn't do it for me, and I miss the old team, the old favorites, and this didn't rise about that. 

 

Also, so bizarre to see the political art stripped out, even if I was sideyeing it when I'd heard about it.

X-Men: Blue (2017-) #1 - Cullen Bunn,Jorge Molina,Matteo Buffagni,Arthur Adams

It's just that there are, what, seven X-Men titles, all competing for my money, time and energy.   And I don't particularly like Jean Grey, especially not when she's the leader of the X-Men, and most of my favorite characters aren't these actual characters. 

 

This is average.   Some of the fight scenes, and the complexities of young Scott Summers, are interesting, and I'm eager to see where this is going with them answering to Magneto now, but overall? 

 

I didn't like this enough.   There wasn't enough of the complexities of time travel.   And I didn't like the character interaction as much as I did in Generation X.   Not sure if, or when, I"ll continue.

Finally!
Generation X (2017-) #1 - Christina Strain,Amilcar Pinna,Terry Dodson

Finally, one of the Marvel freebies that gives me all the feels!   The character interaction feels more intricate and realistic, and this is an old-school X-Men feel: a school where the children learn to use their powers for good, but also... a school. 

 

It helps that I really like Quintin Quire - Kid Omega - as a character and Jubilee and Jono looking for Jubilee's adopted kid was absolutely adorable, even when it should have been a little horrifying.   (The kid being missing, the exposure word play.)

 

Loved this one!

Another miss
Jean Grey (2017-) #1 - Dennis Hopeless,Victor Ibanez,David Yardin

Another freebie.   Another disappointment.   While I liked this story a little bit better, I feel like the whole Phoenix thing is played out, and Jean still feels incredibly boring to me, so I didn't like this more than Iceman.   It's just different elements balanced each other out. 

 

Am I getting disillusioned with Marvel's practice of flooding the markets with titles, spin-offs, and events, leading up to Secret Empire?   Maybe?  But I'm enjoying the next title more, although the iPad was giving me migraines so I put Viv away and am working on Humble Bundle titles now.

Just not that great
Iceman (2017-) #1 - Sina Grace,Alessandro Vitti,Kevin Wada

Doesn't really go anywhere, and there's just unfortunately nothing really original here.   I've seen the angst over dating done better in Midnighter, and with more humor, and I didn't find this nearly as clever as it thought it was. 

 

I won't be buying more of these issues, and I'd been hoping to enjoy this far, far more.  In fact, I was super excited about this series, and that it would be included in the freebies from Marvel, but I was disappointed.
