    No recent wiki edits to this page.

    Sentinels? What? And Magneto? And is that the Master Mold? What the hell is going on in San Francisco now that the Uncanny X-Men have relocated there? They’ve got a new Headquarters and a new status quo as the gauntlet is thrown for a new era of mutantkind. It’s all here in the double-sized anniversary issue that sets up the plotlines that will be developed over the next year in UNCANNY. And it’s all brought to you by the hot writing team of Ed Brubaker & Matt Fraction (Immortal Iron Fist) and fan favorite artists Greg Land (ULTIMATE FANTASTIC FOUR, X-MEN: FREE COMIC BOOK DAY) and Terry Dodson (SPIDER-MAN/BLACK CAT, Wonder Woman). New creators, new home. The future begins now.

    So a milestone for the X-Men both in terms of issues reached and in new location.  But is it any good?  Sadly, I'm not sure it is.  The whole being accepted in San Fransisco by the more liberal society thing is very well done but I have to agree with Pania about the fight with Magneto.  It's just bizarre, though, like Pania, I do think it's a deliberate homage to the Magneto confrontations of the 60s.  There's some pretty nice art from Land and Dodson but I have to say that I'm hugely disappoint...
