With one exception, this was 100% false. Turns out the carrot at the end of this stick was just a big disgusting turd. Anyway, let's break this turd down: House of M: Spider-Man: -5000 Stars This is the worst Marvel comic book I have ever read. This is not an exaggeration. I don't use hyperbole. I think the only comic book I have hated more was Shuddertown, and that's really saying something. So, what's so bad about HoM: Spider-Man? Well, if I really want to break this thing down, I'm going to have to include spoilers and plot stuff, but don't worry, you shouldn't read this stupid story anyway so you're safe. Here goes: (view spoiler)[Spider-Man is a beloved hero/movie star (what?) who appears to be a mutant in this world. He's married to Gwen Stacy and everyone he's ever loved is still alive. The only Green Goblin we know of is a wrestler who is Spider-Man's real-life friend and ring-life enemy (oh, also Spider-Man is a professional wrestler on top of being a superhero and a movie star, like ya do). But one day, the ACTUAL Green Goblin shows up and gives J. Jonah Jameson Peter's diary proving that Spider-Man is a human with superpowers, not a mutant, which is the worst possible crime imaginable in the House of M world, despite the fact that this was not shown to be true in the original House of M miniseries. Well, when the mutants discover that Spider-Man has been a human this whole time, they start LOCKING UP HUMANS AND PUTTING THEM IN CONCENTRATION CAMPS. Are you kidding me?! What is this response?! They've allowed humans to live alongside them for seemingly years, but now one minor celebrity is revealed to be a liar and they start a genocide?! Fine. Whatever. Moving on. So now everyone hates Spider-Man because plot. Mutants hate him because he's human and they are racists. Humans hate him because he single-handedly put them in Nazi Germany or whatever. So life is tough now. This whole time, the mysterious, unnamed Green Goblin keeps showing up with mysterious, unnamed plans. Peter's life is falling completely apart. His family is in danger, he's lost all his money, people are constantly trying to kill him. So, who does the Green Goblin turn out to be? WHY PETER, OF COURSE! WHAT A TWIST! Except, wait! Why in the name of eternal hell would he devise a plan to out himself as a human, thus bringing death and destruction to everyone he loves? I guess he must have a pretty good reason! And I guess that reason is revealed in House of M: Spider-Man #6, which doesn't exist, because it sure as hell isn't revealed in this story! We just see that Peter is actually the Green Goblin, and seems to be losing his mind, and then in the next scene Peter is fine and never acts crazy again. There is NO REASON given for why he ruined his own life. He just did it to have fun! Oh, and I guess Brian Michael Bendis didn't get that memo, because in the actual House of M miniseries, Peter is still a beloved public figure, and no one is rounding up humans to murder them en masse! Great tie-in, everybody! Let's all go for a round of drinks. I'm buying. (The drinks are poison). So now that Peter is outed, there's still a bunch of story left to fill, I guess. Gwen Stacy and her family become super commandoes and break into JJJ's building to get the diary back for some reason. No idea why, since the damage is done, and getting the diary will do nothing. Peter tries to help the humans who are being rounded up, but they hate him and don't want his help. Thus, he does the only logical thing that makes sense in this situation, and fakes his own death by hanging a dummy that looks like him from the Brooklyn Bridge. Immediately the newspapers print that Spider-Man has "taken the coward's way out" (solid reporting that is very ethical), along with a picture of Spidey having hung himself (not gruesome, definitely ok for a newspaper to print). And that's it! They believe it! I guess nobody bothers to take Spider-Man's body down and actually make sure it's real. Why bother? Forensics and police reports have no place in the House of M. Oh, and Spider-Man leaves a note with Magneto (who has subsequently not appeared in this story in any capacity) that says "If you want me to stay dead, ease up on the humans." Deal? Why would Magneto agree to that? Spider-Man has been proven throughout this story to be absolutely no threat to anyone but himself. Worst case, he comes back and either the mutants just shoot him in his dumb ole head or the humans rip him apart for putting them through the ringer. Then, I don't know, Peter and his family (who still love him despite the fact that he ruined the entire world for their race) move to the woods and go fishing. That is literally the end of this story. (hide spoiler)] New Thunderbolts #11 - 0 Stars Dense and utterly unreadable story of some people I've never heard of fighting some other people I've never heard of. I don't know how they found room for art in this story, what with the 12,000 narration bubbles appearing on every page. The few characters you can see all look the same, so good luck figuring out the plot. Nothing is explained, nothing makes sense. I don't even know how to review this thing. I guess if you regularly read New Thunderbolts up until this point you might have a grasp on it, but as it stands it's mind boggling. Fantastic Four: House of M - 2 Stars This one was "fine." It's an imaginative scenario, at least. Reed Richards is dead and the "Fearsome Four" is fronted by Dr. Doom, making for a ruthless team. They follow Magneto's orders, but Doom has other plans, of course. There are some interesting action sequences, and it's thrilling (if a little one-note) to see such a violent Fantastic Four team. The problem is, the plot just doesn't work in the end. It requires too many of the characters to make monumental, idiotic mistakes they would never make, solely in the interest of forward momentum. It also doesn't fully align with the vision of Doom we get from the central House of M miniseries, which, albeit briefly, shows him to be a respected member of Magneto's inner circle. In the end, I felt like this was just a lot of squandered potential. Black Panther #7 - 4 Stars The only redeeming story in this entire, seemingly 9-million-page-long collection. This one is non-stop action and plot, with Black Panther being set up as a total badass. The action scenes are incredibly inventive, taking full advantage of the fact that the House of M world isn't "real," and thus allowing Reginald Hudlin to write whatever he wants. The themes of racial discrimination persisting even in this mutant-controlled world are solid, and the characterizations of the characters come through even with very little time to develop them. I just wish there was more of this. Uncanny X-Men #462-465 - 2 Stars I'll give this one credit for being the only story in this collection that truly feels like it fits within the world Bendis created in the central series. There are even allusions to the events of that series, fully making this feel like a chunk of the same universe. The problem is, this was written by Chris Claremont, and comes with his usual foibles and annoying traits. I know he's a classic X-Men writer, but I have never enjoyed reading anything he writes. I've always thought of him as an ideas guy who really needs someone else to write his stories for him. The dialogue is awful. People speak in exposition constantly, including blatantly explaining their powers out loud to each other, repeatedly, just to be sure the reader remembers. People think in stage directions, explaining in their minds what they're doing in a panel. We know, Chris! We can see it! There is an artist drawing your work! Frustratingly, the only stuff that really needs exposition doesn't receive any. It's super unclear what is going on after the first issue, as character motivations keep changing and people get locked into battles for no discernible reason. There's a ton of fighting, which looks cool thanks to Chris Bachalo's outstanding art (which is far more dynamic than Alan Davis's), but I had no idea why anyone was fighting anyone else in any given moment. Also, it just kind of ends with no resolution. Like this review!

    The Spider-Man story let me down. So during House of M, Wanda was talked into giving everyone what they want. Peter has Gwen back and is rich and famous. But he feels like he does deserve it. So he single handedly tore his own life apart, embarrassed himself and his family, put himself and his family at risk of harm or death and put his uncle and step father at each other’s throats. This was kind of dumb. 2.5 stars. The New Thunderbolts #11 had no business being in here. There are 10 issues that The Spider-Man story let me down.

An entire complete collection worth of lead up story telling that we don’t get to read, just this one random issue. Needless to say I was lost. 1 star. The Fantastic Four story was pretty good, short but decent. I guess with everyone getting what they want in this reality Wanda created, Doom is never satisfied. 3.5 stars. The Black Panther issue was pretty good as well. Also short as it was only one issue but it showed that Black Panther is not to be tried. 3.5 stars.

    📖 House of M by Brian Michael Bendis et al. I’m a sucker for Elseworlds/What If type stories, so I had been looking forward to reading House of M for a while. The premise sounded great: Following the events of Avengers Disassembled, The Scarlet Witch, Wanda Maximoff, has gone berserk and lost control of her reality-warping abilities. Professor X and Doctor Strange do the best they can to contain her, but they fail.

The premise sounded great: Following the events of Avengers Disassembled, The Scarlet Witch, Wanda Maximoff, has gone berserk and lost control of her reality-warping abilities. Professor X and Doctor Strange do the best they can to contain her, but they fail. The Avengers and the X-Men get together to decide what to do with Wanda (aka kill her) before she breaks down and damages all reality. But…they fail again and we get the House of M - a new reality where Magneto, Pietro, and Wanda are in control of the world and humans are considered to be inferior and detested by mutants. I have to say, the story reads much better when reading some of the tie-ins at the same time. I got the 4 oversize hardcovers just because I prefer the format, but I don’t think it’s a must read in a larger format. • House of M, Vol. 1: by Brian Michael Bendis and Olivier Coipel • This is the main title. It contains 8 issues that jumpstart the story and gives a glimpse of the new changes. We see how the Avengers and the X-Men regain their memories and have to deal with their new reality. They then gather to confront Magneto and his family, but things don’t end too well for anybody. The resulting end is that we see Wanda utter the infamous words ‘No More Mutants’, which changes things a bit more.... Overall, 7/10 for both the story and the art. • House of M, Vol. 2: Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, and X-Men • This is the collection I enjoyed the most. Spidey was with Gwen and had a son, Doom had his own interesting and sadistic F4 team, and Black Panther and Storm were still badasses doing their thing. Spidey acts a bit different here than in the main title, but I still really enjoyed this one. In a subsequent story in Son of M (issue 1) (that is not included in this volume) we see Spider-Man confront Pietro for his role in the events of House of M. It’s a short interaction, but I think it really works well as a continuation to the House of M storyline. The X-Men titles were okay-ish. Overall, 7/10 for both the story and the art. • House of M, Vol. 3: Wolverine, Iron Man, and Hulk • I’m gonna go with a 5/10 for this set and 6/10 for art. To me, the most enjoyable story is the one featuring Iron Man….and even then, that one felt a little undercooked. These were all mostly forgettable and didn’t really help with the overall story. I think this one can be easily skipped. • House of M, Vol. 4: No More Mutants • This was very inconsequential and felt like filler. I found myself being pretty bored by it so I skipped a lot of it. Can’t really provide a reliable rating because of it. Overall, I expected a little more from House of M. I’d say it was an okay story that ultimately feels inconsequential now.

    This collections was great. The only weak run was the Fantastic Four run, and the Thunderbolts. The Spiderman run had some good twists, and The Uncanny X-Men run was awesome.

    I've been working my way through the Marvel events. For each event, I've been purchasing all the tie-in trades whenever possible. I truly enjoyed the House of M, so I didn't hesitate to order the related books. This is the first tie-in I have read, and while it started out great, I was very disappointed by the end. As the title notes, the book covers Spider-Man, The Fantastic Four and the X-Men. Also included are tie-in issues for the New Thunderbolts and Black Panther. I was surprised to find th I've been working my way through the Marvel events. For each event, I've been purchasing all the tie-in trades whenever possible. I truly enjoyed the House of M, so I didn't hesitate to order the related books. This is the first tie-in I have read, and while it started out great, I was very disappointed by the end. As the title notes, the book covers Spider-Man, The Fantastic Four and the X-Men. Also included are tie-in issues for the New Thunderbolts and Black Panther. I was surprised to find that while the Scarlet Witch had supposedly altered reality to give everyone their heart’s desire, just about everyone is unhappy anyway! Many of the heroes realize something is wrong, if only subconsciously. This is particularly true for Spider-Man. The trade opens with him and covers roughly 1/3 of the book. He’s rich and famous, married to Gwen Stacy, and still has Aunt May and Uncle Ben – a perfect life. Only, he’s made an enemy of J. Jonah Jameson by deliberately humiliating him in public at every opportunity. This is not the usual behavior of the kind-hearted Peter Parker we know and love. When the world discovers that Peter is not in fact a mutant, his life spirals out of control. Though I found the story depressing, it was also gripping. Familiar characters pop-up in unexpected roles throughout, and I could not put it down right up to the twist when you find out who’s to blame for ruining Peter’s life. The shortest section in the book concerns the New Thunderbolts. I know nothing about this group, but the story was done so well that I was still able to follow it. It opens with Ms. Marvel and Genis-Vell, Mar-Vell’s Kree son, engaged in battle with the Thunderbolts; who are, amazingly enough, fighting for the human resistance! Genis-Vell is attacked by Flashback and his powers result in Genis seeing that reality is wrong and he must make the difficult choice to make no choice at all. Next up is the Fantastic Four, or I should say Fearsome Four as they are known in HoM. Only The Thing survived the cosmic radiation exposure. Doctor Doom uses his dark arts-derived powers to enhance himself, his wife and his adopted son. Never-the-less, they are still only “Sapiens” – tolerated by the HoM as enforcers, not much more than thugs that do Magnus’ dirty work. Needless to say, Doom thinks he should rule the world. This story was also well done and reveals how other characters besides the heroes are dealing with their “perfect” lives. The Black Panther section is only a little longer than the Thunderbolts; despite that, it is my favorite of the book. This may be because he’s the only hero who comes out ahead in his story. Magnus has encouraged Pietro to woo Ororo Monroe, aka Storm, the Queen of Kenya. But, she’s not interested. Her vocal stance on the treatment of Sapiens is a threat to Magnus’ rule. He suspects T’Challa’s influence on her and decides to remove the problem. That is easier said than done. Action-packed and fun. Up until the last section on the Uncanny X-Men, I would have given this collection five stars. However, the last quarter of the book is a piping hot mess, as Tony Stark would say. Newbies who do not already follow the X-Men line have little chance of understanding what is happening, or even recognizing the characters. Norturne, for example, appears to be a female version of Nightcrawler. And she doesn't even know who she is either! Further, other than going on and on about all realities being endangered and the Celestial Guardian Roma (no clue who she is, or where she comes from) threatening to destroy the Earth dimension so it doesn't infect all the others, this section does nothing to expand or explain the HoM story arc. I didn't recognize most of the characters and the dialog was unintelligible. “Until the breach itself is sealed, this chaos wave will keep expanding along the sidereal string…to the farthest reaches of imagination, from the Sundered Planes to the Sublimity—perhaps even to the Ascension itself.” Uh huh. Well, that clears everything right up. Overall, with the exception of the last section which was an incoherent mess, this book is a very good tie-in to the House of M event. We get to see more detail of what this alternate reality is like and how the familiar characters of the Marvel Universe fit into it. Highly recommended.

    An overall disappointing collection, including some of the least interesting comics I've ever read. Still, there was Black Panther #7 and the Fantastic Four tie-in.

Still, there was Black Panther #7 and the Fantastic Four tie-in. But these hardly redeem this sub-par collection, or make it worth purchasing (which I did - D'oh!). Spider-Man: House of M - 2 stars This House of M tie-in has a quite a few things going against it. Spoilers ahead. In this mutant-dominated reality, Spider-Man is a wrestling celebrity, Crusher Hogan is [fake] wrestling nemesis "The Green Goblin", a JJ Jameson is Spidey's public relations man. Spider-Man is loved by everyone because they think he's a mutant. For years, Peter Parker's been humiliating Jameson in public, and the latter's been growing increasingly resentful. So along comes another Green Goblin, who gives Jameson Parker's diary. The secrets revealed therein, if made public, would utterly destroy Spider-Man's career, and Jameson wastes no time doing so. When it is made known that Spider-Man got his powers in a freak lab incident, and not through mutation, the powers-that-be (ie: the mutants) start being more overtly oppressive to the general human populace. Spider-Man is hunted down by the mutants and hated by the humans, so he ends up faking his own death, in the hopes that the mutants will ease up on the humans. So, yeah... There's some inconsistency between this tie-in and the main "House of M" mini-series, because in the mini, Spider-Man (that is, Peter Parker) is still popular and just taking a stroll with his family when Layla Miller "wakes him up" from the House of M reality/illusion, whereas at the end of the tie-in, it's sort of hinted that Parker & his family are living somewhat in hiding (remember: he's supposed to dead) in the country somewhere. (view spoiler)[Oh, and the other Green Goblin turns out to be Peter Parker himself. What?? (hide spoiler)] New Thunderbolts #11 - 0 stars I did not read this one. I just couldn't be bothered. Fantastic Four: House of M - 4 stars With pencils by Scot Eaton, written by John Layman. I really like Layman's "CHEW" series, so I was pleasantly surprised when I found out he wrote this story as well. In the House of M reality, the Fantastic Four never were. Instead, their pod crashed from space and the only passenger still alive was Ben Grimm, whom Victor von Doom keeps around as a pet (he's got his own cage and everything). The space pod's crew have all been altered by cosmic rays, and that gives Doom an idea: he will create a team (the Fearsome Four) with which he will rid the world of Magneto and assume his rightful place as Emperor of the World (this guy, I tell you - he doesn't think small!). The Fearsome Four are bad mofos, even though Ben Grimm (the "It", in this reality) only does what Doom tells him because he believes Doom is working on a cure for his condition. Yes, we know how this story will end, but the ride is a fun one, and the art is easy on the eyes (pencils & colour). Black Panther #7 - 5 stars This stand-alone tie-in is something all comic book writers should read: that way they'd see that (1) you don't need 3-4-5 issues to tell a great story, and (2) THIS is how a great tie-in is done. A lot happens in this issue, and yet there's no clutter. I want more comic books like this. Uncanny X-Men #462-465 - 2 stars Could not get myself to care about any of it. Only (partially-)redeeming part of this 4-part story are the last two issues, with art by Chris Bachalo. Other than that...

    House of M: No More Mutants House of M: Spider-Man, Fantastic Four and X-Men House of M: Wolverine, Iron Man and Hulk Group review for all 3 volumes, with a couple of side-notes. 3/4 of the time I didn't know what the hey was going on. I have no idea who 75% of these characters are. House of M has been over-hyped and is written in such a moronic way, that I could feel my disliking of it page per page. 2 stories that are the exception would be those of Spider-Man, where we are told an alternative hist House of M: No More Mutants House of M: Spider-Man, Fantastic Four and X-Men House of M: Wolverine, Iron Man and Hulk Group review for all 3 volumes, with a couple of side-notes. 3/4 of the time I didn't know what the hey was going on.

And Hulk, where, even though the character of Banner seems completely outside his normal, well usual, self, but where the Hulk shines, the story may be somewhat outside the character`s continuity, but it was well written and nicely drawn. Captain America - wait, I thought the Super-Soldier Serum also gave Cap his long years while maintaining his Young appearance - who the hell is this Dark Knight wanna-be? Iron Man? - way too many daddy-issues for a man that is supposedly such a Genius. Wolverine - I`ve pretty much already forgotten what the story was for this character - but then again, I make it part of my mission in life to forget just about anything written about Wolverine. Black Panther - geez this was more a story about Storm and Pietro than that of the Black Panther. Fantastic Four - Who the hell are these characters? Even Doom seems completely un-recognizable - and did I say Iron Man had daddy issues? Who knew Domm was such a mama`s boy? No More Mutants and X-Men - I have absolutely no idea who these characters were. A note on a lot of the writing. When the heroes use words like "what the *±¢&" or "$#!+", it isn`t very hard to decipher what they are actually trying to say... problem is, a good number of the stories go overboard on using starred-out cuss words and I already have a problem with people who over-cuss in the real world, I don`t need to read it in my comics. Isn`t it funny though that most of the "actual" books I read have ne need for cussing, yet when it comes to comics, it seems to be all right? Maybe comics wouldn`t be considered so juvenile if they started using actual non-cussin words? These three nicely bound over-sized hardcovers were given to me by fellow Goodreads member Martin - Thanks Martin.

    These were pretty good "What if?" scenarios set in the House of M universe. I particularly liked the Fantastic Four and Black Panther sections of the book because they gave us a lot more insight into how the House of M operated. I really liked the Spider-Man section of the book as well: It was VERY well written and drawn; however, it completely contradicts Peter Parker's presence in the main House of M storyline!!! (What's up with that???? ) The X-Men section of the book is just terrible though- These were pretty good "What if?" scenarios set in the House of M universe.

A good companion to the House of M universe... but it didn't really add much to the House of M story arc. A good read if you are intrigued by the Elseworld concept, but ultimately, not integral to the main story. 3/5
