I'm in the process of reading all of the House of M books, and this one was next on my list. I've never read District X, so it probably would have been helpful if I'd had a working knowledge of that title, since most of the characters seem to come from that.

The story isn't particularly original or interesting, and the art was subpar. I was looking forward to reading about Bishop, especially since he plays such a big role in the current Cable title, but he doesn't appear much. Instead, the story focuses more on Ismael Ortega, who is fairly unlikeable. He cheats on his wife - apparently numerous times, since during one of their arguments his wife said that she'd warned him "the last time" that she'd kick him out if he pulled this again - and then tries to use the "but think of the kids" argument (which, sadly, worked). I can't stand that, in fiction or real life.

None of the characters seemed engaging or well-developed. I'm disappointed with this House of M tie-in, to be honest. ( )
