I like that "U mad, bro?" Cyke gives Wolvie at the end.


I guess I don't want to give the impression that I thought this series was all bad.  I love the fact that (and I hope this is not a spoiler) the Original X-Men now seem to be locked in the present and there is no way to send them back.  This means that they can stay in the current continuity as long as the writers have interesting stories to tell about them, and their presence is not going to endanger the existing "reality" (keeping in mind that it's all a comic book world, so none of it is really real).  If nothing else, this crossover event established that the O5 aren't going back to the past anytime soon and that's awesome (for me, at least).


I'm sorry but I have to say that this cross over was a HUGE disappointment.  I mean the action scenes are a mess.  It's all about dialogue.  Aside the fact that Cho and Bachalo the art was horrific in the issues.  Aside from the fact that the battles were generic and boring, the look and the story line is a big disappointment.  I miss the days of crossovers like X-tinction Agenda, or Messiah Complex or Second Coming.  This has to be the worst cross over event since X-cutioners Song.


@JCrizzle76 I think Immonen's art was excellent as well, right up there with Cho and Bachalo.  Overall, though, I agree with your assessment of the story.  I think there were simply too many characters introduced in this "event", so they ended up being forced to sideline most of the recurring characters (y'know, the ones that we actually buy these books to keep up with), so it became difficult to really care about the events or feel that anything important was actually going on.  I've come to dread these yearly "earth-shattering crossover events" and I'm definitely glad this one is over and things can get back to some semblance of normal.
