I thought it would be silly to have the Original X-Men join the roster of All-New X-Men but I am here to retract that statement as it has been incredible. Jean Grey finding out she had died took up some story time; but gave her some great character depth that only added new life into what could have been a very droll story. But it wasn’t Jean Grey or Cyclops that I was so excited to see meet said future counter-part. Even though they have all been through and hell and back, Angel remains the mutant that just can’t seem to figure out who he truly is. And it is going to kill a young Warren Worthington to know he still has no idea who he is 20 years later. Here is the official press release:
