I thought the pairing of these two ladies was just lovely; not failing to mention the fact that we were able to get amazing interactions between not just Jean and Sue, but also with Jean and the rest of the Fantastic Four members who warmly welcomed her and she surprisingly jived well with their dynamics (much to Scott's apparent horror, especially when he saw her in the news, getting a bit cozy with Johnny Storm, the Human Torch).
The moments they spent together in the pages were heartwarming in only a PG-13 series could accomplish. It was nice to see this young, impressionable and often insecure Jean paired with Sue Richards who never really much impressed me in her own series but I thought her characterization for this issue was quite flattering. Parker certainly did well contrasting the aspiring yet comparably inexperienced Jean to that of a self-made superheroine that is the Invisible Girl. In spite of the age and experience difference between them, Jean was able to hold up her end (which is not shocking for me BECAUSE MARVEL GIRL IS AWESOME, Y'ALL) during the tag-along missions with the FF, and she certainly made a lasting impression on Sue and the rest of her crew. And it was so darn cute how the X-guys reacted upon seeing their gal pal and teammate fighting crimes with another group, leading them to come to terms that perhaps they haven't been appreciating her that much, and that they need her more than they let on.
Characters from other Marvel titles making guest appearances in this series (like Thor a nd Gorilla-man) and having them meaningfully interact with the mutant youngsters should totally be a status quo now because it adds to my pleasure and enjoyment of this series as a whole. For a first issue in the second volume, this one has enough delightful moments of sweetness that made me feel warm and fuzzy. Here are the highlights that made me go "awwwww..." If it's even plausible to have an overload in cuteness then I'm already dead after this.
