Uncanny X-Men #12

The X-Men are gone. Long live the X-Men. It doesn't take Cyclops and Wolverine long to put together the core of a new team as Scott follows Logan's plan to break into a O.N.E. government facility and extract the mutants being held prisoner and experimented on (including being used to power a new form of Sentinel).

Uncanny X-Men #12 provides some solid action and some humor between the comic's two lead characters as any grudges between Cyclops and Wolverine appear to have been forgotten (or at least forgiven) given the current state of things. While O.N.E. isn't presented as much of a threat here, they do provide an enemy to fight and hold friends to be rescued.

The rescue offers some welcome faces in Magik and Havok (whose fate at the end of this issue is far more murky than I'd like) and a few others I'm not so sure of. Either way, the rebuilding of the X-Men gets going in short order here. There are obviously other mutants out there, both old friends and enemies, and I'll be curious to see how many of them may show up in the next few issues as potential new members (or potential new problems). Worth a look.
