X-MEN (1991) (#1-275) (MARVEL) #114 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: X-Men #114
These are not your parents' X-Men. These are the New X-Men and its clear by the radically new look of the book that these mutants are out to make their mark. There's no writer more qualified to scribe the tales of these mutants than Grant Morrison. And with the heat Frank Quitely brings with him from his run on the Authority, no better artist could have been chosen either.

Gone are the bright yellow and blue costumes and with them the clear lines between good and evil. In are the stealthy threads of a covert strike force (reminiscent of the Matrix-like suits of the hit X-Men movie) and a rededicated Professor X with a brand new mutant-detecting computer, Cerebra. Also in is a new Beast whose mutation takes him each day further and further from our run-of-the-mill DNA. But one thing remains from the old days-Master Mold and the Sentinels will soon return to eradicate the mutant scourge once and for all. It's a matter of survival, isn't it?

Morrison's words cast the reader's mind immediately into a twisted little corner of the Marvel Universe where the X-Men appear right at home. His gift as a writer seems to be to cultivate storylines and dialogue from the root essence of characters, allowing them to take on the gritty reality of a film noir cast. To experience more of Morrison's power, tune out and turn on to the Invisibles (and you may wonder why they didn't make that movie instead of the Matrix!).
