In which the X-Men save the Champions from being arrested, but can’t take them to Krakoa and so instead teach them that sometimes you have to make hard choices and sometimes those choices are wrong, but that’s ok.

And everyone hugs.

Except they don’t, they have breakfast instead.

This is kinda lovely, I really enjoy these characters and they make a great team. But the part of this issue I enjoyed the most was the part with Viv Vision and the old lady who taught her that sometimes you have to break the rules when those rules are stupid.

Mostly, right now, I’m tired and I need sleep, but this comic was good and I enjoyed it. Sometimes you just need to say that and not get all in depth in a review. I’m rambling…

Anyway, good comic. Yes.

This is good stuff, especially the bit with Viv, and the bit with the core team in the treehouse at the end.

I’m not so much sold on the stuff with CRADLE, but then I don’t really know those characters, yet.

And…the bit at the end…which I won’t spoil…when all hope seemed lost…yes…good.

The art is, of course, fantastic.

I’m just enjoying the hell out of this book.

Well, if you know me you’ll know that teen superhero teams are my jam…and teen superhero teams that are on the run from the law especially so.

Literally my only complaint about this book is that “New law makes superheroing illegal” is a trope that’s well worn, but it’s done well here, so I won’t complain too much (also I did it in one of my own books, so I’d be a big hypocrite if I did).

The writing is superb, and in a team featuring a LOT of characters everyone gets a little moment so we can at least start to get to know them. The art is…wow…the art is just gorgeous, and has a young and vibrant vibe to it that feels very appropriate.

I really need to check out the rest of Outlawed but looking at eBay I’m not sure that’s going to happen as Outlawed #1 is selling for silly money (thanks, coronavirus), but maybe I’ll get lucky.
