This is an alternate version of the world, where the X-Men have attained a level of peace, only to have it shattered by a coalition of villains. There are a lot of pairings that have been made that you wouldn't expect (like Wolverine and Storm, and Bishop and Warbird), and some of those involve children. It's sweeping in scope, taking place all over the world, and in Shi'ar space. There are some interesting things here, and lots of people die rather abrupt deaths. There is a lot going on that wa ...more
Chris Claremont has defined the best of what the X-Men represents.

Lo tengo en revistas, X-Men The End Book One #1-4. Creo que en su momento arranqué a leerlo y me aburrió. Cuando lo retome veré si estaba en lo cierto o me termina convenciendo. También tengo el X-Men Black Sun #1 (of 5), que por lo que veo nunca fue recopilado en libro y no tiene nada que ver con este, pero lo pongo igual para no olvidarme por completo de su existencia.
I love everything Marvel. The storylines are incredible! They have everything you could want: action, adventure, comedy, romance, political intrigue, allegories, metaphors, etc. Some stories drag, some end too soon.

While totally confused reading this, I couldn't stop. Claremont is my favorite X-Men writer, and this series is just another reason to love his work. I can't wait to read the rest of the series!

A bit chaotic, a but confusing, but lots of great callbacks to the series. Reads like classic Claremont, with all the good and bad that entails.
Whoa, this was all over the place. And, seriously, what is up with Claremont and "hounds"? Give it a rest, dude!
