X-Men #2

   You have to give it to the Summers family - they know how to have a good time.

   In the second issue of the new X-Men comic, they go on an odd vacation.

   From their new home on the island Krakoa, a mystery develops when a new island appears nearby - so Scott (Cyclops), Rachel (Prestige) and Nathan (Cable) fly off to investigate.

   So the family that fights together stays together, I guess? 

   There are some odd character beats - some funny squabbling between brother and sister, and Cable seems a bit scatterbrained - but he also seems much younger than I remembered, so apparently he's working through some changes.

   The issue features a different kind of menace with a few surprising twists, and promises some changes to the status quo already.

   So far, also good!
