Ricky said:Anyway, have you noticed that the Ultimate X-Men get quite a poor treatment, compared to the Ultimates? To me, it feels like Ellis doesn't have anything to say about the X-Men.
1. We get a proper explanation, why Fury chose his team.
The X-men seem to be random (where is cyclops, as profilent team leader?)
2. The X-Men son't seem to have any personal relations. They behave like mashines, that don't care about anything beyond the mission.

Ricky said:Yeah, but Cyclops (as steady team leader), Jean (because of her abilities) and Colossus (because he is russian) would have made a lot of more sense. It'd be the team you'd expect. Or at least I'd expect. He should at least have given any (ANY!) explanation for Cyclops not being chosen.
Still, where should we put this book, continuity-wise compared to Ult. X-Men?
