Astonishing X-Men

Show Summary

Astonishing X-Men is a motion comic series developed from Marvel Comics's Astonishing X-Men story arc, "Gifted", written by Joss Whedon and drawn by John Cassaday, which follows the reintroduction of the home team of the X-Men, comprised now of Cyclops, the White Queen, Beast, Wolverine, and Shadowcat. Shadowcat doesn't meet eye-to-eye with the White Queen, especially since their bad blood stems from the time the telepathic diamond Queen tried to kill Shadowcat and her friends. They work begrudgingly work together when the announcement of the creation of a "mutant cure" hits the news. The cure, developed by an alien overlord, Ord, with the experimentation on a resurrected and drugged metallic formed Colossus, holds the threat to decimate the mutant population. Colossus, otherwise known as Piotr Rasputin, had died in a sacrifice to release an airborne cure of a mutant-focused virus. The still at-odds X-Men set out to free Colossus and to find out just why Ord would travel all that way from his home planet, the Breakworld, to destroy mutants. Astonishing X-Men was adapted by Marvel Comics new graphic way of storytelling, holding onto the panel-by-panel style but with moving graphics, sounds, and explosive dynamics. Whedon and Cassaday's run on Astonishing X-Men was awarded an Eisner award for its definitely astounding treatment of one of the best X-Men runs in a decade.
