Brutally Honest: X-Women #1- celebration or exploitation?

Is Marvel's new X-Women book exploitative?

Lately, Marvel has been making a big push to reach a female demographic with their one-shots focusing on female comic book characters as well as their Women of Marvel series. So is their new book, X-Women #1 (which hits store shelves on Thursday, July 8th) celebratory of women in comics, or does it smell of exploitation? If the latter, is this a step back for Marvel? Watch the video, check out the official Marvel.com solicitation as well as the cover and some interior art and let me know what you guys think!
