Guess it really depends on the writer. Storm was always a fun leader of the X-men especially when a punk rocker and beating the hell out of Scott Summers. Problem is if this is just a gimmicky "Read this book because they are all women" without a story to back anything up. In that case, it is just another case of rebooting to give us another #1.

Maybe the back stories will be changed to where they all got their superpowers as a result of an accident during their gender reassignment surgeries.

Didn't they also rename Cerebro to "Cerebra"?  I recently started reading the X comics again and I missed that change along the way.

Also, the Danger Room is now a blue mechanical chick with dreds.

Can be any worse than a group of X-Men where one is a cripple in a wheelchair, a delusional Canuck who thinks he's a werewolf, a blue fuzzy monster with glasses, a blue monster with a devil's tale and an ADHD, and some dude who shine penlights from his eyes.

Brian Wood's pretty decent. I was trying to remember what all he'd written, and his bibliography's pretty extensive. Supermarket, in particular, is worth a read. The guy's experienced, and he could probably make this work.

I'm not crazy about Oliver Coipel's work, though. Something about the way he draws faces is... well, a little odd.

Magneto is the master of  magnetism. Pretty much everything can become paramagnetic if you have a powerful enough magnetic field, including human beings. They've never really established how powerful a magnetic field Magneto can actually generate. The total energy in the field seems to be quite large- he's able to fly himself around, and even if that's because he's wearing superconducting underwear, that's a  lot of energy.

But that's when he's being gentle. Because magnetic fields obey the inverse square law. So if the field where he's standing is strong enough to lift a man, then a meter away, it could lift a child. Two meters away, it could lift a small dog. We don't generally see this happen, so we can assume that he's blocking the magnetic field. The main way to shield a magnetic field to prevent leakage is to create another, weaker magnetic field.

Long story short: I don't think plastic nipple rings are going to help. He could probably create a magnetic field powerful enough to induce eddy currents in the plastic, thus magnetizing it. We can do this, by the way- it takes a few Tesla field, but we can magnetize plastic.

Currently, he's portrayed as having the powers of a demigod, or close enough.  In the Avengers vs Xmen, Iron Man tried to tap into the magnetic field of 'Jupiter' to try and fight Magneto and it wasn't enough to stop him.  In the end, he simply stopped fighting and took a dive upon realizing he was fighting on the wrong side.

You know, I hope this isn't Marvel just plugging an all women's comic.  DC's been at with "Birds of Prey" LONG before Marvel decided to do it.

Also: "Fearless Defenders" does the same thing, it's just without mutants.

He's always been terrible for power creep. Although, to be fair, Jupiter is very far away, so even tapping into Jupiter's magnetic field wouldn't be terribly helpful if your fight were on Earth. But, ah... comic books don't physics, I understand.

I know, right?  Off the top of my head, it had something to do with 'deep space satellites' that IM uses to somehow 'channel' a magnetic field across astronomical distances.  It made zero sense at the time and I only remember it because it astounded me that a rational creature would even consider sending a tech-based hero against a man capable of molecular control over magnetism and limited control over the other recognized forces of nature.

Because, as we know, depictions of women in superhero comic books are always so extremely sensible and respectable.

Picking issue #1 up after work, so I'm getting a kick...

Just recently got back into comics, and I gravitated towards X-Men simply for the fact that it was my fave when I was a kid. The new Uncanny X-Men has been pretty great so far and I'm pretty hyped for this as well, mainly because Psylocke was my fave character back in the day.
 
2013-05-29 05:30:12 PM
Haven't read Xmen in years.  I always thought Psylocke was written to be far too powerful while parading around in a stupid mask and cape.  It was like re-reading all that Chris Claremont Phoenix crappy angst all over again.

Now everyone tell me why I'm wrong.

From the preview that I saw, I think Jubilee has a newborn baby, so if you dig vinyl and Caesarean scars, it might be the book for you!

Actually, that was a decent storyline. Turns out the Danger Room was sentient alien tech that Professor X captured and used 'because time was short'. The X-Men were  furious when they found out.
