    Haven't really been following TRO myself but I didn't feel lost (currently reading Infinity as well), outside not knowing who Pod is.
    I personally never saw how he got the egg. There's an issue of TRO which reveals that he does in fact have it though. Pod is nothing. It was one of the landing sites of the missiles that Ex Nihili sent to earth the reformat the earth. Pod is just a suit. There's a norwegian girl in there. And Cannonball/Smasher's baby.

    I mean, we had a whole raft of major characters die.
    Or they're all going to reappear on Battleworld like Ultimate Cap and Thor Odinson and Lady Thor clearly are. Have some faith in Marvel a little.

    I've been following the X-men for a while but I don't exactly re-call when Cyclops got that Phoenix Egg.

    Good issue, but it was still utter BS, that T'challa lost EVERYTHING, and of everybody that got "raptured" up onto the raft Storm was left out, and we KNOW she got left out specifically because Thor got Raptured onto the raft right in front of her. So yea RIP Ororo Munroe.....

    Actually occurs to me Cyclops is the only mutant in there? I foresee a lot of Complex fans sharpening their adamantium knives...

    Only thing I didn't like was the little continuity error towards the beginning where Hyperion appears as one of the heroes flying up to meet the 1610 invaders. Otherwise, this was pretty damn great. Reed finally lost something, though his family is pretty much guaranteed to come back at this point because comics. You don't open an issue with them dying to not bring them back later in the series. Glad to see T'Challa get major panel time. I hope that continues.

    EDIT: I also thought this worked well as a first issue. If I picked this up, having not read anything in Marvel, I'd be confused in that I don't know who all the characters are, but I'd understand the events and stakes of the story, and I'd definitely be interested in reading the next one.

    So, as someone who has only been reading x-books, this intro into the event was one big convoluted mess.

    Hopefully it gets better (more clear) for people who haven't been keeping up with prelude books.

    Storm and iceman were there from 616. And several ultimate universe mutants.

    Nvm, I see now you meant the ones who got "saved"

    For those of you on this thread that havent read TRO or New avengers or Avengers:

    -domes form at each incursion site. We don't yet know what their purpose is, but several of us believe that's where pieces of Battleworld are harvested. We also know that NYC 616 and 1610 are going to be pieces of battleworld.

    Therefore: don't count out anyone who was in that battle NOT making it to battleworld
