This was a fun read, full of rollicking adventure...and editing errors. The editing on this book is practically non-existent. There are places where one sentence come to the end of a line, and instead of finishing up on the next line, another sentence starts up midway through. There are numerous places where, if there are two wys to state something it is obvious that the author changed his mind, at some point, about which phrasing to use, so the reader is left with a sentence that starts off in ...more

I remember reading this and liking it alot. I never read the following 2 books, but always did and still want to. If I recall correctly, this book had a tighter focus on fewer characters, which was a plus. Many X-Men books try to do much, but this is a story with a tighter focus.

The plot is also pretty interesting, basically a house of M type story where Doom had succeeded. And it was done years before House of M.

All in all, I liked it and recommend it to anyone looking for a good X-men Novel,

A really great read! I haven’t read and X-men novel in over 10 years and it was great to be able to read one again. This is the first of three books. Doctor doom has taken over the world and has become a tyrant who rules with an iron fist. It’s up to the X-men to stop him. After reading this book, I realized why I love X-men so much. The characters feel so real, especially when you dig into their history. They experience real pain, real struggles, and have endured intense identity crises.

These days I'm not as into superhero novels like I was years ago but, I loved this novel! The X-men trilogies are usually really good and this one was no different. I'm not all that familiar with doom other then from the fantastic four movies but, the the story of him in control of the world was fun. Only the x-men were there to stop him! I'm excited to see how the next two books will play out!
