Scott Summers’s decision to leave his students and hand them and ownership of the New Xavier School for Mutants over to Ororo doesn’t turn out quite like he hopes. His new students are startled, rebellious and angry at his apparent abandonment and they go careening off on their own with predictable and unpredictable results.

New mutants, old mutants, past and present X-Men, friends, family and enemies clash as they all try to sort out their new roles and how they fit in the world. With Scott gone, do matters settle down at the New Xavier School for Mutants? No, of course not! Large and small dramas wend their way across the pages (which are laid out in such a way that I have to keep re-scanning to understand the dialogue).

It all culminates in a scene of startling tension—yet there’s such joy on that page that I found myself actually smiling and crying a little. It’s not a happy ending. It’s not an ending at all; it never is with comics. But it’s a realization of a long-held dream. Who wouldn’t smile at that?

Agree with the below (again). Sometimes Bendis gets it right, but in some cases such as this one, the writing comes across as meandering and pointless. Bachalos art never really impresses me and it's no different here. I will however say Cyclops is a great character though.

Bendis finishes his run mangling the X-Men (with most of the art by Bachalo, who desperately needs lessons on how to actually draw). And true to form, Bendis gets characterization completely wrong, wrecks havoc with certain characters, and props up another character (Cyclops) who should have been put out of his misery years ago.
