I want to get into reading the X-Men. So far, I have no experience with them. Since the X-Men have a very long history, it might be very confusing to get into the story. And I do not want to catch up on very old stories.
I did some googling on the matter and found this guide:
My current plan is to read the stories mentioned in that post and take it from there. But then I found out that Marvel wants to reboot their universe with Marvel NOW!
Will this offer an opportunity to get completely fresh X-Men? Or should I do some background reading first? Is there another good starting point for the X-Men?
