We see Magneto, our Magneto, leave and then another version of him appears; dressed differently with a different hair cut, etc. This is Nate's version of Magneto who is staying to help him rebuild the world. This AU Magneto is asked, what he would sacrifice to build a new world. I think this is a split, a quantum mechanical split and both are the complete Magneto. One will stay in Nate's world where mutants are safe and in charge, the other (our Mags) returns to 616 to face all the usual sh*t with all the same complexities of personality he's always had.
    Exactly

    I think it was just Nate´s hair that went white because he overused his powers, he didn´t age.

    The way this ending paints Nate as some kind of tragic hero ("you gave us a gift" ???) when he actually fucked over the entire world in Dissassembled and then brainwashed the X-Men, stole them from their own lives and used them as puppets.. what

    And all the deaths of Uncanny are indirectly blamed on him as well.

    The wording seems off when it says it's not an "alternate" universe, I think the word should have been "altered", since they are saying this isn't a house of M type situation where it's just an alteration of an existing reality but more of a Heroes Reborn type thing where it's a separate new reality.

    I liked it because there was no battle. It wasn't the usual they talked him out of it. Like heroes should do.

    What a waste of a Life Seed.

    All that power wasted on creating some silly fictional Utopia for make believe mutants when he could have been helping the mutants in the actual dimension he lived in or the 616.

    Event was a waste of time. The Bishop and Lorna mini was the only thing I really enjoyed.

    He did try to help the 616, that is why the X-Men confronted him. That was the story of Uncanny X-Men #1-10. Now, what happens at the end and exactly how this Utopia works not explained as best it could, but basically issue #10 ends with him getting killed, and probably killing everyone else there, then Omega reveals them being rescued by the life seed and that results in this other plane being created, where he creates this Utopia and saves the X-Men.

    Honestly what pissed me off the most about this book. And this is a credit to the artist was listen to poor put upon Nate chastise the X-men wasn't bad enough. But the artist did such a good job of making them look absolutely shameful as he blathered on and on. And that's truly the feeling i'm left with from this entire run. Being absolutely disgusted by the fact that the whole scene came off like Nate was doing these people some big favor and they felt ashamed for wanting their you know, own lives back. I wish someone would have stabbed him with that crystal and i generally don't have feelings for the character of Nate one war or the other. But now i kind of want to just forget him.

    Oh and Nightcrawler wanting to stay in the Age of X. That felt just like, it didn't even feel like fanfiction. Like i don't think anyone who has read a few nightcrawler comics would have done that. Not even a hater.
