X-Treme X-Men #1 Review
A revamped series brought back from the dead, X-Treme X-Men #1 is the first issue since it’s hiatus in 2004. Greg Pak and Stephen Segovia have written a book full of so many X-Men multiverses it’ll make your head spin. Don’t worry though, it has Dazzler in it.
In X-Treme X-Men #1 Charles Xavier’s 100 functioning decapitated heads with the help of Nightcrawler, opened a multiverse portal in attempts to save an entire population from a dying planet with the largest trans-dimensional teleportation. They were successful but not without breaking the multi-verse and awakening ten different Xaviers. This new X-Men team made up of Dazzler, Xavier’s head, James Howlett the Wolverine of the wild west or the former Governor General of Dominion of Canada and Viceroy of Her Majesty’s Expedition to Shangri-La if you want to get technical, Emmeline Frost-Summers of the Albion X-Society, and Kurt Waggoner or Nightcrawler must team up, find and kill the other Xaviers before they destroy all creation. It really is as awesome as it sounds, and Dazzler’s in it.
I get confused really easily, especially when multiple characters meet their multi-verse selves crossing over through dimensional shifts, but Greg Pak and Stephen Segovia have written X-Treme X-Men in a way where I’m still confused, but I’m having fun trying to figure everything out. The art by Stephen Segovia is pretty decent, although some characters look like they have really big teeth, gained a few extra pounds, and I’m pretty sure the Dazzler impersonator was a dude. Characters faces sometimes look distorted, unfinished, or masked in shadow, making the book appear lazy when I’m sure it isn’t. If you like your X-Men over multiple universes, I suggest you check out X-Treme X-Men because the first X-Troop they come in contact with are some bad ass looking pre-industrial, bronze-age X-Men. And of course, Dazzler’s in it.
