We’re taking our first good look at X-Men this week and reading the 2012 graphic novel X-Men: Season One, from writer Dennis Hopeless and artist Jamie McKelvie. In this contemporary re-telling of the original comics, teenage telekinetic Jean Gray is upset about leaving her normal home and school behind to live at Charles Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters. She doesn’t want to be trained for battle, even if it is to help mankind and show them that mutants can be heroes. It’s also stressful being the new kid and the only girl on the team. Jean, Cyclops, Angel, Iceman, and Beast are learning to be heroes and successful young adults in this great intro book for new X-Men fans!
