I don't see how anyone could think this story is "good" unless they decided before hand and reach for anything they can cling to in hopes they were right.
These alt. dimension/timeline storylines are cheap as fuck. ONLY in these alt. worlds does anything happen to the characters. We watch them month after month go through the ringer, fight the villain of the month, etc. and how different are these characters from years ago? Not much. Yet, suddenly, an alternate world they can pretend like permanent shit would happen. Well, unfortunately, the fact that it doesn't happen in the "real" world, pretty much destroys the alt. reality concept. Yea, so-and-so goes through every situation in the world and lives, but falls down stairs, breaks neck --- If they wouldn't do it in the 616, it doesn't hold up for me making up some temporary world to kill, maim and attitude adjust a bunch of serialized characters. Take wolverine for instance - in no way, shape, or form can he be killed in 616, (argue it to your hearts content, and when we see no wolverine in the 616 for the rest of time, I'll say you're right) but here, no problem, just takes ten seconds.
Plus, this should have been like a four issue mini series, because jack shit happened in the first four or five issues. That right there makes the series flawed.
People that don't understand the suspension of disbelief and how it works, or not, in stories should be creating stories or defending them. It's had some neat elements here and there, but overall is a train wreck.
