Astonishing X-Men: Gifted – Read This Now!

Posted by Luke Brown On December - 1 - 2010

Joss Whedon had the tough task of following Grant Morrison’s run on New X-Men with the retitled Astonishing X-Men. While it may have been a difficult challenge for any other writer, Whedon’s Astonishing X-Men was a great complimentary run, as well as a fantastic read in its own right.

Combined with John Casaday’s gorgeous art, Joss Whedon’s story in Astonishing X-Men brought the team of super-mutants back into the public fold. No longer operating in black jackets, the spandex was back, and so was the focus on Xavier’s School for the Gifted. The dynamic characters lived and breathed as only the could under the steady hand of Whedon, and “Gifted” was exactly what the franchise needed after the epic that was Morrison’s New X-Men.
