Comic of the Week (3/23/11) – New Mutants #23

By Vince

New Mutants #23 is the fourth chapter of the “Age of X” miniseries running between this title and X-Men Legacy. Mike Carey has created an alternate (or is it?) reality where the X-Men never existed and humanity has driven mutants to near extinction. The remaining mutants band together behind Magneto to defend themselves. However, cracks are starting to show in Fortress X, and not just physically; something is seriously wrong here. This issue follows Legacy (Rogue), Gambit and Magneto as the attempt to uncover the mystery with the help of Kitty Pryde and a comatose Charles Xavier. In a comic franchise where alternate realities are a regular event, “Age of X” has set itself up as something different; something that will matter.
