I couldn't put it down. I would love for this to continue. What an amazing run and yeah I don't get why they were drooling and the whole what is the weakness scene didn't mean anything as they never did anything with it and I know they were blocked by a psychic but by who?

I really liked Whedon's run. On page 26 why is everyone drooling?

@sonofset did you keep reading?  The visions on the pages before that (of the FF saving the day) were just that: "visions".  None of it was real, everybody was being fed these images of themselves saving the day but in actuality they were just in a trance.  That's what the drooling was: them being in a coma kinda thing


I just read the Whedon/Cassady run of Astonishing X-Men in excitement for The Avengers. All I have to is: I remembered why I loved comic books. By far one of, if not THE, best story arc I have ever read. Joss Whedon, you are a genius. Thank you.

The entire Whedon/Cassady run of Astonishing X-Men is just mind blowing. I loved every moment of it and it is easily one of , if not the absolute best in the large history that the X-Men has.


This was a great ending to one of the best story arcs I have read. I remembered why I love the x-men.
