James 1:27 Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world." James 1:27 NASB
Chris Clermont is a literary genius and wrote another classic, placing him firmly among the pantheon of the greatest writers of all time. He redefined this genre and tells a compelling humanist tale that celebrated the strength of faith and the value of all humanity, while showing disguised hate for what it is. The confrontation between young Kitty Pride and Stryker is the zenith of this time and a lesson for us all.
And just to give unneccessarry detail, I’m more of a DC guy. I’m not really into Avengers, but I do love classic books like Civil War and the OG Secret Wars. This book is going to change all that. (I’ve already starting Wolverine by Claremont—amped!!)
Without giving too much away, this story is extremely timely, and the villain is one of the most disgustingly evil villains I’ve had the pleasure of reading. I cannot believe how much I hated him by the climax. Unbeatable value, even for 2 bucks. Just make sure to read it in the Comixology app, as the panels are too small to read on Kindle.
It focuses upon a Reverend Stryker who has built up a large following and has decided to use it to preach against mutants. Not only that, but he has a small army called the Purifiers that hunt them down, and then kidnaps Professor Xavier in an attempt to wipe them out.
The theme and the story is a common one between love or hate, mutant haters versus human-mutant cooperation. You also get the message from the other side from Magneto talking about creating a mutant nation, and then a big speech by Cyclops about what hate is about. This highlights the fact that the X-Men were originally conceived during the civil rights movements to indirectly talk about race relations in America.

If you're a fan of the X-Men, this is a must buy. It's a great place to start in the X-Men universe as well, if you're new to graphic novels, and is a great introduction to all the characters. A little familiarity won't hurt but it's definitely not necessary to enjoy the story, which is almost entirely self-contained. This is also that rare graphic novel that I would recommend to non-superhero fans or those who have never picked up a comic book before, the story carries it through perfectly and has a core message that anyone would enjoy. 10/10, look forward to reading it again many times in the coming years!
