I don't like the X-Men as killers. ( )

So yeah, this was garbage. I expect so much more from Warren Ellis. It was practically unreadable. Art was terrible to behold. Seriously, why was this published? ( )

Joss Whedon left and this series went all sorts of to hell. The biggest problem with this volume is that, in the previous installment, Joss, as he is wont to do, had a character sacrifice herself to save the rest of the X team. She wasn't dead, but she was certainly going to be gone for quite a while, assuming she ever made it back, and it was all very emotional. This volume never mentioned that. At all.

The plot of this is just awful and mostly doesn't make sense. The last chapters are depressing and come out of absolutely nowhere. The group had won a battle with the bad guys and then all of a sudden things are different. And apparently they lost. But there's no explanation of what's happening. I can't say whether the last sections were, fittingly, an alternate universe thing or if the series is over or what. I suspect it was an alternate universe, but that should definitely be made more apparent. ( )
