I appreciate it because Remender really seems to know his shit. He's reaching far back with many of these plot points, and shows he's a real X-Men fanboy. He talks about it with a lot of passion in interviews.

Other than Mike Carey, I don't know if I've gotten that feeling from any X-writer of the last 10-15 years other than maybe Grant Morrison.. and I don't even know so much if he was really a fanboy or just knowledgeable about the stuff. IIRC, he was a DC guy growing up.

I really like this story but I still feel that it went on a little too long. Also how did no one call out Fantomex for keeping Apocalypse alive? You'd think that would be a big deal.

When you are in the middle of a battle with your former teammate, that involves two universes, and failure will result in the extinction of humanity...I would think that you don't have a lot of time to ask questions like "Hey Fantomex, where did you get that adolescent Apocalypse from?"

That being said, I am fairly certain that the upcoming story arc will probably deal with some of the loose ends from the Dark Angel saga, including just why Fantomex thought it would be a good idea to have a child clone of Apocalypse as a contingency plan.

Aside from Fantomex, Ultimaton, and lil' 'pocalypse the only other person that we know for a fact was on EVA was Psylocke. Betsy obviously had other things on her mind and it is possible that the rest of X-Force doesn't know about the clone yet since they were either unconscious or in a fleshy pile of meat awaiting regeneration.
