Sixteen million mutants dead - and that was just the beginning! In one bold stroke, writer Grant Morrison ("All-Star Superman", "Batman") propelled the "X-Men" into the 21st century, masterminding a challenging new direction for Marvel's mutant heroes that began with the destruction of Genosha and never let up. Regarded as the most innovative thinker of the current comic-book renaissance, Morrison proceeded to turn the mutant-hero genre on its ear. Gone were the gaudy spandex costumes - replaced by slick, black leather and an attitude to match. Now, his entire Eisner Award-nominated run on "New X-Men" is collected across three titanic trade paperbacks! It collects "New X-Men" (114-126), and "Annual 2001".

Cassandra Nova gehört zu den fiesesten Feinden der Mutanten, die in letzter Zeit gesichtet wurden. "Imperial" gehört mit zu den dramatischten und mitreißendsten Stories, die ich bisher gelesen habe. Und schließlich verpasst dieser verrückte Schotte dem ganzen auch noch eine so interessante gesellschaftliche Dimension, daß man nicht mehr aufhören kann zu lesen, sei es auch nur wegen Emma Frost.
Kurzum: Man muß sich nicht mehr schämen, die X-Men zu lesen, und dank Morrison ist der Titel zu einem Comic geworden, den man gelesen haben muß. WAs mag da noch kommen?

I found it very confusing with multiple TPBs covering the same stories- I ended up with an extra that overlapped.
All in all, the story in this is fantastic. It is very interesting take on the X-men and introduces some of the more interesting characters in years (Xorn,Cassandra Nova, Fantomex). I agree with the other review that you really need to read it from end-to-end since there are ideas and characters that require the entire series to develop.
However, the big downfall is the art. Unlike Astonishing X-men or Messiah Complex, the art in these is all over the map and often not appealing (IMHO). I powered through some of the areas but found individual issues to be quite nice.
In the end, I chose the individual volumes over the New X-Men Omnibus because I could get the three for cheaper, and I didn't mind getting used copies.
The only few things I know about the X-Men came form the movies and the saturday morning cartoons from the 90's. At one point I thought "You made a mistake buying this. The story most definably need for u to read a build-up so you can understand it". I was wrong!
I L-O-V-E-D and understood this book begining to end!! No back-up books to get what was going on. No need of character intruductions. I just read and enjoy it.
Gotta admmit, I was lost with a few characters (like with the Shi-ar), but that was minor. I picked up the pace fast. Grant Morrison really do a fine job with the X-Men and the way of presenting them, and give them different difficulties.
The art is also great. I'm no fan of Frank Quietly, but I think he makes a good job here. Ethan Van Sciver (an artist I don't really like) makes an impressive work in some issues. I definably want him more on the X-Men than on Batman or Green Lantern.
I just can't recommend this book more. This weekend I'll follow with the other 2 trades andlet you know the veredit. So far, this one has been a magnificent surprise, but I think I'll sell my 3 trades at the end... I want the Omnibus now!!!
This book places emphasis on characters rather than simply having fight and explosion non-stop. Though there are many story elements carried over from elsewhere, Morrison lets the reader ease into the book, allowing one to quickly get a grasp on the past history of the X-men and follow along with the new stories he is writing. And these new stories are unquestionably defining.
I wasn't too sure of the artwork, but I knew that reading these stories would help me to understand the current Marvel universe. Previously, I have read The Dark Phoenix Saga and otherwise mostly only books published after publication of this collection. Most of the changes that have happened to the x-men since the early 90s seem to have come from the New X-Men by Grant Morrison.
I read this over one day and immediately ordered the next 3 volumes (starting with New X-Men: New Worlds). The story is good, real good. Many radical things happen to the X-men (Cassandra Nova, Genosha, Emma Frost's addition to the regular line-up, and the introduction of the Stepford Cuckoos - though their past still remains a mystery to me).
Let's just say that I acclimated to Frank's artwork. He's good, but either you like his style or you don't. I'm not fond of it, but I'll say he's good at it. While not the sole artist, he is the best in this hardcover.
If you like Morrison's New X-men run, you should read these collections afterwards: Phoenix Endsong and Joss Whedon's Astonishing X-Men (in that order), possibly Academy X.
This book contains a "making of" section at the back with early scripts.
