X-TREME X-MEN (2001) #1 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: X-treme X-Men #1
"Now, it begins!" With those auspicious words, Chris Claremont lanches the first new core X-Men team book in several years. As his co-pilot, new comics sensation Salvadore Larroca is in place. Now Storm, Rogue, Beast, Bishop, Thunderbird, Psylocke and Sage start to rocket through their own crazed corner of the Marvel Universe. With volume 3 of Destiny's diary in hand, these seven mutants set off Spain, not sure whether they can trust even Charles Xavier any more with what the prophetic book reveals.

But the Spanish special forces police don't take kindly to mutant outlaws camping out in their most lovely haciendas and the inevitable firefight breaks out. But who are the mysterious trio who are also hunting gen-actives? And how did they get one of the volumes of Destiny's diary? Amid the chaos there is, of course, romance and mystery. This wouldn't be an X-book without them.

Claremont's power as a writer is his ability weave well-rounded and realistic characters into intricate, almost byzantine, plots and subplots in such a way that the reader feels they themselves are trapped with the heroes in events beyond their control. Larroca, meanwhile, is the master of tone and sequential storytelling and excels at showing mutants who are comfortable with their powerful (and ofttimes sexy) bodies and the devastating powers granted them at birth. A collector's must-have issue!
