The battle with the Shi'ar and the Super Guardians begins, but, of course, all is not as it seems. The mystery behind the conflict is revealed and lots a heroes make the ultimate sacrifice. The action was good, and by this point in the story what happened in the missing years no longer matters. The ending was a little abrupt and very unsatisfying; the baddie has killed half the X-Men, and billions of other souls, but we can all hold hands and be happy together in the afterlife. I do not like the ...more

In Universe 41001, the X-Men are fighting the Shiar again. Kitty Pryde is running for mayor of Chicago. Brian Braddock is a X-Man (very minimal role (not much more than a cameo)). The Brood is going crazy and the Phoenix has returned. This book spun politics very well in an entertaining, non-preachy manner. It also seemed to look at the history of the X-Men and note the flaws in inception and practice.

Continuing the x-read of 2017...

I'm not sure what to say about this other than I felt that it pretty spectacularly fell apart in this third volume. It is just a mess, in my opinion. Sure, it had its moments... But overall, this series was a bit of a letdown and not likely something that I would ever return to. Not Claremont's finest moment.

This finished strong, if a bit odd. There were a lot of heroic deaths, and several people returned to life. There was plenty of action, and they explained a bit why Scott was acting so strangely and saying things about Madelyne Pryor in the previous volume. That resolved interestingly, and the whole story had a nice lift at the end (though a lot of favorite characters had died, so it wasn't all sunshine and roses). I didn't really have previous experience of the main antagonist, but it proved ...more

Chris Claremont has defined the best of what the X-Men represents. He writes sweeping narratives punctuated by sermonizing speeches that make the X-Men an overt symbol of tolerance for the other whether that be racial equality, gay rights, or any other marginalized group.. In this swan song story, he does what he does best again.

However the story suffers from an overly complicated plot line and the ever expanding cast of characters. Stories... and comic book stories in particular... often can't

I obviously missed some books. Couldn't follow and didn't catchmy interest enough to try.

Okay - reread (forgot first pass). Much more interesting now that I understand and know the surrounding mythos better. Not the best but not bad. finished this time Oct 2011

It's nice to see how Claremont would end the mutants. A little too mystical at the very end, but otherwise fun.

I don't think these end books really have any sway on story continuity.
