The kids love that. Wolverine : I ain't up to anything don't have the word "beer" in it.
Beast: You could fight for beers Wolverine: Well, now that doesn't sound too bad. Beast : to Dr.
Rao I'm not here to discuss the ethics of your "mutant cure". And I'm not here to destroy it I just want to know if it works. Issue 3[ edit ] Shadowcat : Mutants are a community.
We're a people and there's no way anybody can make us be what they want. We stick together and don't panic or overreact We're stronger than this. Wing: Miss Pryde Kitty : How much detention are we allowed to give? What is the maximum amount of detention the human body can withstand? Emma : Three students were missing from my ethics class. Seventeen overall. Logan had to break up two fistfights and a mystical swordfight. And that dreadful Guatemalan crab-boy is at Benetech telling reporters this is every mutant's only chance to avoid burning in everlasting hellfire.
This is eating us from the inside out. Kitty : Oh my God Emma Frost : sarcastically Yes, let's do make jokes right now!
Shadowcat : I'm not joking! There is a very large part of me which has a problem with that concept! Emma Frost : The students are fleeing the school half-wit! Shadowcat : Maybe it's time for another peppy "they will always hate us" speech! Wolverine : I thought I was the one with the claws! Nick Fury : Somebody's gonna die. You know how I know this? Beast : I don't know what I am. I used to have fingers.
I used to have a mouth you could kiss, I could walk down the street and Maybe this the secondary stage of my mutation, or maybe Cassandra Nova was right. Maybe I am devolving. My mind is still sharp, but my instincts, my emotions You know what it's like to be out of control. What am I supposed to do, Logan? Wait until I'm lying in front of the students, playing with a ball of string? Beast : I am a human being.
Wolverine : Wrong. You're an X-Man. Student: So, what -- the teachers spend all their time here trying to kill each other? This place is so cool. Shadowcat: Are you gonna fight everyone, Logan? I just wanna know if I'm next. Wolverine: Nah, you'd go ninja on me -- I can't take that kinda hurt.
Cyclops : Kitty, you're our computer whiz, so start running down Benetech. I want to know exactly who's funding this research. Hank's in the lab. Emma, check the students. The two then say their goodbyes. In "Meanwhile", Agent Brand leads a rescue mission to the Pandora's Box, a space station where some of the universe's most dangerous experiments are conducted. Only one person has been retrieved from the station, but he leaves Brand for dead.
The team find Brand and members of S. The team manage to get back to the ship, and though they have the opportunity to destroy the space station and eliminate the Brood for good, Brand argues against this, stating that they are necessary to take out the larger predators. They then decide to take out the Brood Queen and allow the rest of the Brood to return home without any consequence.
While they attack the Brood, Storm becomes infected as well and becomes a host for Brood larvae. The rest of the team likewise become infected and gradually mutate into Brood themselves. The only exception being Kitty Pryde, still in her intangible state. The team also find another unnamed Brood infant, who became an outcast due to his compassion for mammals. Eventually, the X-Men are able to regain their human memories mid-battle and eliminate the queens.
The Brood are given the option to go home, which they accept. The Brood infant returns to Earth with the X-Men and observes the new Brood larvae, who with no ties to the queen have a bright future.
However, Machinesmith had been manipulating her into trying to break him loose while trying to take over her body. Danger regains control and returns him to Beast and the Avengers, and Frost comforts her in saying that she is still young and still learning to trust others, but that is one thing that makes her human. In the "Exalted" storyline beginning issue 44, written by Greg Pak, the focus lies mostly on Scott Summers as a lead character.
Through the use of a Ghost Box, a device which allows characters to enter into a parallel universe, an alternate reality in the X-Men continuity is explored. In the timeline featured here, the X-Men have waged war on Magneto to free the subjugated human race.
In his dying breath, Magneto cracks the planet causing certain doom. Xavier, recast as Savior in this timeline, and other Marvel super-geniuses create a device to save their planet by harnessing the powers of mutants.
Savior scours the multiverse with a Ghost Box collecting various incarnations of X-Men, favoring Cyclops, and using them until they burn out. That is until his Storm finds "our" Cyclops. Scott wakes to find himself imprisoned in the device along with alternate versions of mutant teammates James Howlett, Emmeline Frost, Shadow cat , and a young Kurt Wagner Nightcrawler. They escape, learn the truth about Savior and his plans, and make the hard humanity-at-stake decisions of heroes.
Along the way it becomes apparent that a single Cyclops can provide immense power for the device, and that many of them have chosen to self-sacrifice to preserve Savior's world. When Scott refuses and destroys the device telling Savior to "Find another way! This combined with Savior's willingness to sacrifice some of the humans from his own reality is enough for Storm to side with the former captives.
As his Emma and Storm depart through a failing Ghost Box portal, Scott tells them that his decisions doomed that Earth and he should stay to help fix it.
Howlett pushes him through saying he had been worried momentarily about Scott's non-self-sacrifice, but now was reassured, and that Scott wouldn't be the last person they save today. Contrary to the book's previous format of being divided into individual story arcs, Liu and Perkins are on Astonishing X-Men for an open-ended run.
The storyline focused on the Age of Apocalypse Nightcrawler 's attempt to return home. Following the event, Astonishing X-Men would be the sole title of the three to continue publication. The next arc in the series issue 62 to 65 featured Iceman , who was corrupted by the Apocalypse seed during X-Termination and sent the world into an ice age. Astonishing X-Men ended with issue 68 in October As part of the ResurrXion event, a new ongoing series for Astonishing X-Men written by Charles Soule and illustrated by a rotating art team was launched.
The series starts when a band of X-Men members find themselves reunited in London in order to face the threat of the Shadow King.
The first story arc features the return of the Shadow King and his series of psychic attacks against various mutants.
While in London, Psylocke was targeted by the Shadow King, but she was able to send psychic butterflies to seek help before being possessed by the entity. The Shadow King focused the totality of Psylocke's psychic power emerging as a psychic butterfly and attacking the minds of the people in London. Returning her distress call were Rogue and Old Man Logan, aboard the Blackbird above the North Atlantic; Bishop, doing research in the British Museum, Angel, flying over the Scotland; Gambit and Fantomex, in the middle of a heist in Paris; and Beast, arriving in late after the attack.
Betsy told the team that her attacker was the Shadow King and he's attacking psychics in an effort to return from the astral plane. The series of What If? The first examines what would have happened if Ord had resurrected Jean Grey—who was thought a logical candidate for the character rumored to be returning from the dead—instead of Colossus. The second considers the ensuing consequences if the android Ultron had learned of the existence of the sentient Danger during his then-battle with the Runaways, leading him to become determined to make her his bride.
Joss Whedon's run on Astonishing X-Men was subjected to criticism regarding the delays between the issues. Whedon's initial contract with Marvel Comics was for twelve issues for one year but the final issues were four months late. After a break of several months, the title resumed in February with the new story arc "Torn. The book resumed a monthly schedule in September with issues 16 and 17, but was delayed once again for issue Delays persisted for a variety of reasons, including Cassaday's last-minute assignment to pencil the fifth issue of Fallen Son: The Death of Captain America.
Whedon said that while he knew "many people have done cure scenarios before me," he was not familiar with any of those earlier stories at the time he started working on "Gifted. In Wizard , Whedon admitted to making mistakes in the second story arc, saying he was so fascinated with the idea of the "new intelligence" that he neglected the action and thus prevented the story from flowing well.
The third volume of the Astonishing X-Men comic book series has generally been well received with comic sales normally being very high. Whedon's run was nominated for several Eisner Awards. Also, in , Astonishing X-Men, vol. The series have been collected into a number of trade paperbacks:.
These animated episodes were then released on DVD through Shout!
Marvel Knights Animation would continued animating Whedon and Cassady's run,  starting with the second storyline of the series X-Men: Marvel released a prose adaption of Astonishing X-Men: Gifted in September , written and adapted by comics writer Peter David.

Warren Ellis: Resolute animated series Castlevania animated series. Joss Whedon. Here is my review of Astonishing X-Men Vol. Anything to do with the young X-Student, Wing, was done in horror-like fashion and I loved it.
But in large part, this book sticks with the same tone set by the first — fast-paced action with plenty of funny jokes. I liked how s Score: 4. I liked how some of the humour was more than just one-liners, especially the sequence with Wolverine and his undying love for beer! Many of the X-Men get their moment to shine, but Kitty and Cyclops were standouts.
This book also has some well-drawn landscape shots and the attention to detail for more subtle and quieter moments were great.
