‘The Future is a Four-Letter Word.’

Tokyo burns with the genetic heat of the final light. Can Generation Hope tame it, or will the X-Men have to snuff it out? The first battle for the future of mutantkind comes to a climax, with Bio-titans fighting between the sky-scrapers when hope and despair come to blows.

The first arc concludes!

Part 3 of 3.

  1. Okay this is weird… I just grabbed this issue today

  2. That probably shouldn’t have happened.

  3. I liked the first issue, but the second was a story I feel like I’d seen somewhere else.  I’m on the fence and will wait to see how I feel closer to my comic run.

  4. Part 3 of 3, huh? Well I’ll definitely pick this up. I liked the first two OK. Whether I’ll stick with this book going forward, I’m not sure.

  5. The story does end but on a cliff hanger, so don’t assume that this is the “End.” It shipped last week in Indianapolis, as did several other “new” books on this week’s list.

  6. Last issue the writing improved. Still not sold on these characters, though. None seem even remotely intereseting, except maybe the super fast dying guy.

  7. I already had this mailed to me.  Something weird must have happened with the distribution.

  8. I like Gillen’s voice for Hope, but the rest of the cast is 2D. Also, that Phoenix Force page arched my brow. Liked this issue the best of the run, but I feel as if this book isn’t strong enough to stan on its own.
