They made the right choice. Scott is a true hero and it's good that more X-Men are recognizing that. The ones that matter, at least.

I couldn't figure out whether the kids went back to the past or not. I was generally disappointed with the ending. Granted, I missed the prior Uncanny and WatXM (was the store shorted, are are people driving from shop to shop buying it out?)

I saw a missile barrage, a brawl during the missile barrage, then an epilogue. The future X-men arbitrarily died.

Bendis doesn't follow the (old) Marvel line that time travel creates parallel dimensions (I can't go back in time and change the past because the moment I go back in time, I've triggered a parallel universe to splinter).

As it stands, all the future people running around--I can't figure out whether they are parallel universe people or whether Jubilee must accept her fate to die in the year 20xx when a Sentinel steps on her (or whatever happened).

It actually blows big chunks. "Wow, I know Beast dies in 20 years shot in the back by a Sentinel."

It needs more drama if these are really "our beloved heroes" and not parallel universe twins.

The original five X-Men remained in the present but they left the Jean Grey School and went to Scott's New Xavier School with Kitty Pryde.

I saw a missile barrage, a brawl during the missile barrage, then an epilogue. The future X-men arbitrarily died.


Xoobies (Future Jean Grey) went batshit crazy and used her telekinesis to force the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarriers in the area to open fire on the past, present, and future X-Men. There was a lot of confusion because, well that's a lot of firepower raining down on the X-Men at one time, but only future Beast, future Colossus, and future Jubilee were killed as a result of the attack while Xoobies is presumed dead because she self exploded.

Bendis doesn't follow the (old) Marvel line that time travel creates parallel dimensions (I can't go back in time and change the past because the moment I go back in time, I've triggered a parallel universe to splinter).

As it stands, all the future people running around--I can't figure out whether they are parallel universe people or whether Jubilee must accept her fate to die in the year 20xx when a Sentinel steps on her (or whatever happened).

Except for the part where Wolverine stabbed time recently during Age of Ultron and now time is broken. Bendis wrote Age of Ultron and I would say that as a result there are no longer any rules to time travel in the Marvel Universe.

Except, I don't give a fuck who's right. I've never liked Cyclops and I have no plan to like him…ever. Uncanny is also a book I plan on stopping at this point so I don't really want to see Kitty's group interact there. Like I said I'd rather they ended up doing their own thing and being the traveling adventurers.

Stopping reading Uncanny X-Men is a fool's move. The art has been amazing in that book if nothing else.

Aren't the 'All-New' team going off into space to crossover with the Guardians Of The Galaxy?

They are doing their own thing!

"Broken" has got to be near the top of Bendis's most cloying rhetorical flourishes.

Prof X: You don't understand. Time is *broken*.

Skeptic: What do you mean 'broken'? My Wii that won't turn on anymore is 'broken'. But, last time I checked, "Arrow" still ends after 60 minutes.

Tony Stark: You don't understand. That's not how it works. Yesterday, time was time. But, now it is broken.

Skeptic: I think you're indulging yourself in big media soundbites. 'Broken' implies a simple device that can no longer do the one or two things it is supposed to do. A Wii that won't turn on is 'broken.' National security, on the other hand, isn't 'broken' just because one guy sneaks through airport security with a copyright-infringing bootleg of "Iron Man 3".

Reed Richards: You don't understand. You don't get to play judge here. Time isn't doing what it is supposed to be doing. Yesterday, it was working. Now it is not. It is broken.

Skeptic: So you're saying my library book will never become due? If not, time seems to be working just fine. Why do you talk like a politician patronizing an impressionable audience? Why is your world so black and white?

Logan: If something isn't fixed, then it is broken. That's the way it's played here. Those are the rules.

Skeptic: When did you become so touchy-feely??? Didn't you just eviscerate somebody with your bare hands? You know, thirty years ago, you would have sided with me. "Time looks just fine to me, bub."

Prof X: You don't understand. It's not about him. Don't you dare say things are fine. They're not. They're broken.

Skeptic: WHEN DID YOU ALL BECOME CORPORATE SPIN MASTERS??? YOU TALK LIKE A REP ON THE 5 O'CLOCK NEWS.

Sabertooth: Don't wet your pants, kid. I still talk like I always did. Bills keep coming due. Time looks just peachy to me. But, yeah, I don't talk right. 'You don't understand. You don't get to do your own thing. That's not how it works.' F--king Stepford Wives sh-t going on here. :smt013

As someone who loves Bachalo, I hate the double page spreads of story telling.

It's great to see how effective Marvel's marketing has been, with people actually taking sides
