Midnight Suns #1

Kicking off a four-issue mini-series, a group of heroes are brought together to investigate an ominous prophecy involving a student at the Strange Academy. Some are brought by the vision, some are at the school as guest lecturer, others are recruited, and one shows up on their own. By the end of the issue, however, we have a bit of a motley group assembled for what's to come.

Midnight Suns #1 (obviously inspired by the game of the same name) is a fine, if not particularly interesting, first issue setting the stage. I will admit to being distracted by Magik's look (a sort of half-gold armor that doesn't match the cover or much resemble the version fans and cosplayers have come to love over the years). Other characters include Blade, Wolverine, and the Spirit Rider. But perhaps the most interesting thing about events is the attention it draws from a certain super-villain.
