Uncanny X-Men: Superior Vol. 1: Survival of the Fittest

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Just as life appeared to be turning back to normal for mutants, the terrigen mist cloud was released. The terrigen mist cloud transforms Inhuman descendants, but it makes mutants sick.
Subsequently many mutants have gone to great lengths to hide from the cloud.
Making matters worse the Dark Riders are seeking mutant healers for execution.
The mutant healers and all mutant kind have an unlikely defender, Magneto and his mutant team.

I picked up Uncanny X-Men out of curiosity. The lineup of Magento, Psylocke, Archangel, Sabertooth, and Monet seemed an odd group, but sometimes odd is good. This is definitely one of those cases. Seeing Magneto and Sabertooth actually doing the right thing was a fun change. This more brutal team of mutants are quite the interesting bunch. This team is one that prefers dealing with an enemy once.

I can't fully explain why I've enjoyed the Uncanny X-Men so much, but this title is my favorite X-Men title of the three current titles (Extraordinary X-Men and All-New X-Men being the other too). I look forward to seeing what Magneto's mutants will do next to defend mutantkind.
