    Fun? Some of it. The rest....drawn out...delayed...stories that just drag on and on (Last Will and Testament). Bendis had some good ideas but mainly, the stories were clunky.

    That depends on Hickman and future writers

    We'll never see Loa again. But what a great, emotional send-off she got!

    I just really feel like Hickman can't fail at this point. I know, i know we keep saying it. It can't get any worse but i'm genuinely surprised the overall stories do. After this run i think they got us like Mikey "They'll take(eat) anything..." lol

    I liked the overall idea of this run. The x-men are at their lowest and are besieged from all sides and decide to still fight and take out some of their villains in a sort of a dirty dozen, suicide mission war kind of way. And for once the story showed what that would be in "real life" namely, people die on suicide missions. I have always been very upset and disappointed in past stories that supposedly had the mutants on earth on the brink of death. In almost all those stories the x-men just got stronger and bigger and more unbeatable until they were on an island that housed hundreds of superpowers mutants. And it seemed also that with every "death to mutant kind" story the x-men just ended up with even more students. That bugged me. Now for once we finally get a story in which the x-men get hit, really hit hard. And I think this was an excellent choice as a set up.
    The execution of this story was not that good. It felt rushed even though it had more issues in a short amount of time and I think there could have been a been better artist picked for the style and point of this run. But all in all I do not think this run was as bad as some people think. I think it just could have been better executed, but this run is better then a whole bunch of other stuff we have been pushed down our throat during the "we (marvel) don't fully own the x-men, so to hell with them" period.

    It's funny that the X-Men seemed fine with being presumed dead and being rendered invisible to recordings by Roma during the Outback era but now it's the most offensive thing ever.

    Why not use it at least for a few minutes to catch your breath? Do you really want to be photographed standing over the still warm corpse of an American military officer? (Sure, he was evil, but the general public wouldn't know that.)

    It seems like every decision the X-Men make has to involve some immediate ridiculous overreaction to something.

    Meanwhile Illyana is rampaging through a military base like a Doom 5 boss and no one seems bothered by that.

    Different group of X-men. Most of the Australian X-men werent in this book and the only ones that piped up were Scott, Jean and Dani, none of whom were there for Roma's spell

    Unless Elixir and Marr... Yeah, they're dead too. So are all those mutant prisoners the O.N.E. staff had no idea what to do with until Magik ate everyone or whatever..
