4.0 out of 5 stars A good graphic novel with one very large cavit. March 28 2007
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
First off, I really like this story. The characters were fun, one or two of them were actually original, and I could understand two thirds of them. That's normally as good as it gets.

However, there were also some points in this story that I think could've been handled better.

Points for:

1. I love the art. Not as ugly as Age of Apocalypse, and much more finely colored than the early stuff. And the age of the female characters saves them from the ridiculus clothing some female supers wear in this genre.

2. I could empathize with the characters. Wither has the worst (as in worst to have, not worst thought out) power, bar none, that I have come across. He touches things and they die. Or, in hte case of nonliving organic things, turn to dust. Naturally he is less than thrilled.

As for the others- Mercury was not terribly original, except for her power (she's made of liquid metal). She wants her parents to get past her being a mutant, and she has a crush on Wither. That is it. That is the sum and total of her personality. STill, I sort of liked her.

Dust was unusual because I think she's the first Muslim character I've found in the genre. She is Afghani and very traditoinal, which was more interesting than if she had been a rebel. Her main desire is to find her mother, from whom she was separated recently.

The other three- Tag, Hellion, and Rockslide- are okay, nothing special. Hellion is the semi-required rich kid, Rockslide is the strongman, and Tag has a specialized form of mind control. None of htem made much of an impression.

3. A good plot, nothing original but not bad.

Downside:

1. Wither again. He is my favorite, but- IF HIS POWER TURNS ORGANIC MATTER TO DUST, WHY DOESN'T HE STARVE TO DEATH? Has this ever been adressed? The paradox has come up before, that a mutant's power should, technicaly, prevent their survival. But I never saw evidance that the writer noticed it.

2. If the baddie (who arrives suddenly, offering their hearts' desires and a price to match) can turn Wither's power off so easily, why couldn't the Beast do the same?

3. The Hellions are supposedly the bad kids at school. THis does not surface. Hellion has an attitude, and that's about it. However, the story opens with Emma Frost, who is most accustomed to chaos, telling Hellion that the level of rule-breaking the team had commited was unacceptable. Then the team has a run-in with the airport guards, but no one is hurt. And, truth to tell, I can't see any super-powered teenagers 'not' getting into a fight, under the circumstances. Then the entire thing vanishes. The Hellions seem to be just kids. Nice ones. Sorry, but this doesn't make sense.

All in all, a good read, but some paradoxes here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genuinely Entertaining May 5 2006
By A. Figueroa - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Focusing on Emma Frost's "good" Hellions, this tells the story of the Hellions who feature in the New X-Men (Academy X) series. While the plot hinges on an often used hook, it serves extremely well in letting us get to know the characters. There's also a character that reminds me of Calypso from the Twisted Metal games (which I consider a bonus).

The artwork is a "fun" cartoony, not detracting from the serious moments while at the same setting a lighter mood that is so unlike many of the dark, graphic, and violent stories that perpetuate the market today. The style you see on the cover is what you get.

Much recommended along with the New X-Men series. I recommend you read this before starting that series. A word of caution, that series does become one of the darker violent comics when it hits issues in the 20s. Thankfully, the artwork quality remains the same.

2.0 out of 5 stars The word is "generic" Oct. 17 2012
By RL - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I don't regret reading this, but then again I'm never doing so again. Very standard Monkey's Paw plot, strictly by the numbers. Some okay character work, although the one most focused on(Hellion) is easily the most cardboard-cutout and least interesting to me. The art is competent and helps the story flow but seems almost too focused on that purpose: there's no real sense of style, or action to it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wanna get to know the Hellions? Nov. 26 2006
By MT - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book focuses mostly on character development for Emma Frost's new Hellions. The New X-Men are off to vacation to Julian Keller's home in California. Upon arrival, Julian (Hellion) is informed that he will no longer get the family's inheritence, which will go to his older brother. This leads to Julian curiosity to wonder where his parents got all the money and is then convinced that his parents have been doing something illegal to get all the money they have. He and the New X-Men search for clues and find information on the "Kingmaker." They naively accept the Kingmaker's deals which include you do something for me, I'll do something for you. These young kids then run into problems with this mysterious man Kingmaker.

My verdict: The artist did a very good job drawing these characters. He made them colorful, playful, and all that. Another plus is that this book is no where near dark or violent, so it's acceptable for younger children. As for the story--it has little excitement and can be predictable at times. However, this book does a pretty good job as for character development, and I'm assuming that this is what the book is made for as character development goes. If you want to familiarize yourself with the Hellions, then I suggest you buy this book. But if you're looking for an exciting and intense comic story, don't get it. What I got it for, I think it did a pretty fair job. I'd say check it out, but it's definitely not a necessity. 3/5
