    Chris Claremont has defined the best of what the X-Men represents. He writes sweeping narratives punctuated by sermonizing speeches that make the X-Men an overt symbol of tolerance for the other whether that be racial equality, gay rights, or any other marginalized group.. In this swan song story, he does what he does best again. However the story suffers from an overly complicated plot line and the ever expanding cast of characters.

Stories... and comic book stories in particular... often can't handle the wait of too large a cast and this is a case in point. Still a fun and a bit inspiring read.

    The first book of the series was frustrating at times due to the lack of backstory; we have a story about future X-Men with no knowledge of things that happened between the 'then' and the 'now'. The second book has the first book to build on, so there is at least some history now for the reader to work with. The second book is also more focused, dealing almost exclusively with the Mister Sinister arc of the story. It does not feel as rushed or overwhelming as the first book.

The art is great, the story feels epic and is well done (not perfect, but very good).

    I'm really enjoying this series. This volume had some nice nods to the "3rd Summers Brother" trope that plagued almost every new white male mutant through the late 80s and 90s. I also very much appreciate how Claremont isn't even pretending to hide the Kitty/Rachel romantic relationship that he's confirmed in interviews he was always intentionally hintung at as much as possible under the comics code.

    Continuing the x-read of 2017... Still a bit of a mess, plot-wise. Still a fun read that harkens back to old-school Claremont. Had to order book 3 because I had apparently missed it somehow so it will be a little bit before I can see the conclusion to this story. I suppose that it says something about the story when the wait doesn't bother me. Continuing the x-read of 2017... Still a bit of a mess, plot-wise.

    Different reality, same X-men. Great look at a what-if universe. X-Men fans will enjoy

    This was a bit better than the previous volume, since it focused on only two or three plots, rather than about ten. There were some interesting turns, particularly involving Gambit and Rogue. Since Gambit is a favorite of mine, these were interesting, and rather well done. The part with Cyclops lamenting Madelyne Pryor seemed a bit forced, since I have recently read the original storyline, and I sort of suspected it was a trap he was making, but that never quite panned out.

Other than that, there were some good character moments, though for characters locked in the time of the writing, and a lot has happened to them, since. Hopefully, it will stay this tight through the next volume.

    Excellent! They don't call this "The End" for nothing! Characters are dying left and right, and a lot of them are favorites of mine, but all in service of the story. I really enjoy this series and the artwork is amazing! Excellent! They don't call this "The End" for nothing!

    Some nice excitement and some nice revelations about Gambit and Sinister that were 10-15 years overdue.
