I love everything Marvel. The storylines are incredible! They have everything you could want: action, adventure, comedy, romance, political intrigue, allegories, metaphors, etc. Some stories drag, some end too soon. ( )

I loved this collection of comics. I literally couldn't put the book down until I had finished it.

This collection is definitely all about Magneto. His past, including his past with Charles Xavier, is finally detailed. You see how (and why) Charles was paralyzed, Magneto's increasing paranoia, and how he had become enemies with Charles.

The friendship with Charles is kind of strange. The collection opens with Charles leaving his family so he can run off with Magneto (yeah...that was rather weird; they seemed more like boyfriends instead of best friends at some points), and Charles is talking about how his wife and son won't miss him (and if you've read volume 3, I believe it was, of Ultimate X-Men, you'll see how this wasn't the case at all). Of course, their friendship begins to grow strained, but it's surprisingly resilient in spite, or perhaps because, of their history with one another.

I loved Magneto's complicated relationship with Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, although they barely make an appearance. On the one hand, the guy shot his own son in the kneecaps. On the other hand, he's desperately unhappy because he is estranged from his children. It just shows how messed up of a guy Ultimate!Magneto truly is. And seeing his children play in the first school for mutants as he watched on was rather sad.

You also find out what happened to Cyclops, who was presumed dead in the last collection of Ultimate X-Men (but, as we could all guess, he didn't stay "dead" for long). ( )
