X-Men #1 comic reviewWhile I wasn’t looking, Marvel rebooted X-Men. Again. The new volume features the heroes return to New York through a Treehouse connected to the mutant’s home base on Arrako. X-Men #1 does offer a look at the Treehouse both through the eyes of Polaris getting a tour inside and reporter Ben Urich reporting on the heroes’ return and their swanky new digs.

We also get the city under attack from some big space thing which the X-Men beat out all of New York’s other heroes to take down. They do so by creating a giant mecha to fight the creature. I don’t know why they do this (I’m not sure the characters do either) but it does offer some nice panels of action.

S.W.O.R.D. #1 comic reviewMarvel resurrects the Sentient World Observation and Response Department with S.W.O.R.D. #1 with Special Agent Abigail Brand in command of the space agency looking outwards to threats to Earth from among the stars from the space station known as the Peak.

The new S.W.O.R.D. has deep ties to Krakoa, and a staff that includes a mutant contingency such as Magneto and a group of six mutants who use their combined abilities to travel through space and time (in a way that isn’t explained and takes place mostly off-panel).
