Astonishing X-Men Volume 3

This would be the third series that runs by this name, but the first ongoing series. Astonishing X-Men is a volume that was started in 2004 by Joss Whedon and John Cassaday as part of the X-Men: Reload event. It was meant to become the prime X-Men series, and was so for some time. It featured the return of fan-favorite X-Man Collossus, the introduction of S.W.O.R.D. and Breakworld among others. The series lasted for 68 issues and was the only series that did not receive the Marvel Now logo, even though it was published during that time. It was recently cancelled and then replaced by Amazing X-Men Vol.2 as part of Marvel Now.
