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. 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

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.

This story takes place 20 or so years in the future for the mid-2000's X-Men. The reader is thrown into a new era of X-Men without any real history of why things are the way they are, or even who some of the characters are. This causes some confusion, and does make the story feel a little rushed and incomplete, but if you can just accept what is happening in the 'now', and not be put-off by not knowing the recent past, then this is a very good story and well worth reading.

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!
