I'm still very torn on this book. I absolutely love the fact that Remender is continuing plots and ideas from his Uncanny X-Force run. Obviously, Wolverine's kill team didn't get the job done as well as they thought they had and now their problems are slowly becoming Avengers problems. I wonder if any of this will have repercussions that will be felt by Wolverine in the future.

Once again, the weakest part of this issue for me personally was Acuña's art. Honestly, I feel that Acuña took a step back this issue. In my opinion, his art was a little bit stronger and more defined last issue. I was a little disappointed that Remender killed Jeb Lee the Horsemen of Famine but I have faith in the direction he is going, so it's a minor complaint because the character was the most interesting of the current batch of Horsemen.

Finally, I will echo the sentiments that others have already voiced. I am not a fan of the characterization being used to depict the main characters. It feels like all of Rogue's growth since she joined the X-Men in 1983 has been thrown out the window and the Scarlet Witch is the last person who should be closed minded and judgmental. I don't have a problem with a potential romance between Havok and Wasp but I don't believe that Janet would be that strong and forceful about it and could somebody please tell me what happened to Havok and Polaris?

i'm guessing Havok and Polaris

split up when he left X-Factor and she didn't. He didn't seem comfortable with that group, and she did. That and fully getting her memories/sanity back probably factored into the break up. I don't think there was that much of an "on panel" break up. Just they went their separate ways, Alex joining the Avengers and Lorna staying with X-Factor

I so agree here. After how long Alex and Lorna have been together, the best they can do is have them apparently break up off panel? I'm really getting sick of Quesada and co's anti-marriage/ relationship fetish.

Never read his X-Force, but as Apocalypse is a villain I have no interest in, I guess I can skip this book for now.

Remender's Uncanny X-Force run was actually quite good and just like Uncanny Avengers, it actually has very little to do with Apocalypse himself. Uncanny X-Force deals with the fallout from Apocalypse's death, a successor being chosen, and that successor filling a role given to him by the Celestials. Uncanny Avengers picks up the pieces that Wolverine's merry little murder crew left behind...but multiplies them because Kang is now involved.

I seem to be the only one who didn't like the killing of the Celestial. :smt102

To me it came across as a writer going, "see see, isn't this weapon cool!" My reaction was more, "give me a break." :roll:

Maybe a little more build up to see what the axe can do? Maybe kill a minor character here or a minor character there to show that it is very powerful before you go right for a Celestial? But to go ahead and kill a Celestial right off the bat with the villain's first use of the axe just strikes me as very over the top in an unwanted kind of way.

I'm indifferent to them myself actually. In the end, my problem with this is the question -- where does he go with the axe from here? Making a big splash with something to start off isn't a bad thing. However, in this case, I think the splash might be too big. Now that it's been used to kill a Celestial, is anything else going to seem as big a deal? That's going to hurt this story in the long run I'm thinking.

I suppose it was a bit like when Loeb had Red Hulk punch The Watcher in the face, but then I liked that too...

I dunno, I just like seeing these sacred cow uber-cosmic powerful entities get brought down a peg.

I'm with Punchy ( :shock: ), as someone who does not like the Eternals and thinks it's Kirby's weakest Marvel work, I like the fact that the Celestials are being brought down a bit here. It shows that they aren't the super-powerful cosmic force that they've been made out to be. I really like that as a pairing with the whole idea of the builders in Hickman's Avengers. It shows that there are all kinds of things going on in the MU and that one supreme entity doesn't trump all others.

I also like the fact that with Odin's enchantment, it gives the Asgardians an edge in terms of god-stuff. With all of that, it really increases Thor's personal stake in the series and also ties to Thor: God of Thunder and promotes that "shared universe".

As much as I think a throw-down between Jarnbjorn and Mjolnir is cliche, I'd love to see it go down.

The idea that a Celestial can be killed with one whack of a magic ax is silly. Especially in the issue beforehand we see the same ax used just to wound, not kill, Apocalypse, who's a servant of the space gods and nowhere near as powerful.

The scene where Wasp all but throws herself at Havok was just as terrible.

Word. I only read up to Messiah Complex and never bothered with X-Men Legacy.

maybe he is as powerful, or even more powerful? :smt102 He is, after all an imaginary character.
