I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.
I've read criticisms that this was fairly typical. Fair enough. I liked this because there's a lot of metal being put in humans.
There's also a hatred of mutant kind rising, and this kind of prejudice is old school X-Men. It's what they've been fighting against from the beginning: blind hate and fear. I really like the way this was combined with a new type of weapon to fight them, so I was more interested in this storyline. It wasn't original or spectacular enough to rate five stars, but it read better than most of the X-titles. I'll most likely look into reading more of this series.
