    Default Favorite New X-Men Arc

    I just got finished reading the whole of Grant Morrisons New X-Men. First and foremost I just have to say words can't explain the greatness of this run. I admit the writing at the beggining of the arcs sometimes were just boring, but when the arcs started to pick up they were fantastic and I found that this happened for every story.

    Now that I'm done I'm curious as to what are the fans favorite arcs. I'm not going to lie while I loved every arc(Except maybe Planet X), none of them were able to match up to "E is for Extinction" for me(I stopped in the middle of re-reading it to write this, it's just that good). Second couldn't be anything else but "Riot at Xavier's", I love WATXM and I had no idea how much Quire was being misused.

    Tomorrow I'll be re-reading Whedons Astonishing. I'm not really excited about it as I never was to much of a fan. But I wanted to give it another shot so I can read it as a storyline Morrison - Whedon, and I might fight some enjoyment in it afterall.

    So Lets have it. Favorite NXM Arc.

    Tough choice. The entire thing read like one giant story. Sadly the terrible Igor Kordey art affected the quality of some overall great stories. E is for Extinction, Riot at Xaviers, and Planet X were favorites. My favorite single issue is the first issue of Murder at the Mansion (covered above).

    Here Comes Tomorrow! It'd have been the perfect finale for the franchise, and Morrison supposedly wrote it is such a way that a reader could consider it that if they wanted to. The team of X-Men in it was great, too.

    I think his first two arcs were pure perfection. The destruction of Genosha, the entrances of Emma Frost and Angel Salvadore, the horror of Cassie Nova...gives me palpitations, honey.

    1. E is for Extinction - i remember going to church and thanking God for bringing Morrison to the X-Men. loved his work on JLA and the Invisibles- i knew he'd bring an amazing new perspective on the x-men.
    2. New Worlds - "jean is only the house where i live..." / the use of tp and tk were sooo normal that it's sooo cool!!! real world applications and not just blasting or creating shields and levitating and stuff.
    3. HCT - the White Phoenix of the Crown scene, that is the most powerful Phoenix act ever - totally God-like. I LOVE IT!

    Fave issue? THE SILENT ISSUE!!! admit it you guys, that was Morrison/Quitely at it's finest!

    My favorite arc is "Here comes tomorrow". The reason is that I always found future stories interesting.

    "E is for Extinction" is pretty much perfect. However, issue #132 is my favorite of the run, and the silent issue is pretty damn tremendous as well.

    I didn't much like Assault On Weapon Plus. I find it hard to figuure out what the hell is going on in most of it. Voted for M@TM, because Jean and Emma are hot.
