|Amazing X-Men 15 cover by Kris Anka|
The great elder demon Cyttorak has been left without an avatar for some time now. Cain Marko and Colossus had both previously found ways to throw off the awesome power bestowed by Cyttorak's ruby crystal, and along with it, the manacles that bound them to that power.
Colossus has struggled of late. Life has always been hard, but the once optimistic and caring soul has been tarnished by rash and, at times, corrupting choices. As a result he has become estranged from some of his oldest friends in the X-Men. However, Wolverine was willing to give him a chance at redemption. With Wolverine gone, this responsibility falls to the de facto leader, Storm.
As the reemergence of the ruby of Cyttorak occurs in Southeast Asia, Colossus and the X-Men are drawn to it to stop the rise of another Juggernaut, the avatar of destruction. Current Amazing X-Men series writer Chris Yost is without his usual partner on this arc, Craig Kyle. However, the story begins strongly. The premise is sound and throws open what could be a fun arc.

Amazing X-Men #15 begins a new run for a new artist, Jorge Fornes. From the start of this comic, the art feels really comfortable for this type of story. Fornes's panel arrangement and the storytelling as a result is dynamic and fluid. The characters have a lot of emotion in their eyes, matching the tone of Yost's story.

Rachelle Rosenberg is a mainstay on the creative team. The colors Rosenberg brings to Amazing X-Men #15 are bright yet serious. They catch the eye and bring life to the pages. This brings a great sense of belonging as a result, with Rosenberg letting the reader fit right on in and enjoy the experience of this issue.
