  1. I hope we can avoid any advanced mathematical proofs this issue. It was real disaster last time.

    • I thought 99% of last issue was a dialogue free battle sequence … ??

    • …which culminated in some nonsensical mathematical proofs.

      I’m looking for this series to get back on track. C’mon Hickman, don’t let this die with a whimper. Or with sound and fury signifying nothing. S.H.I.E.L.D. started out with so much promise.

  2. I love Hickman and I’m sticking with this one until the end. That being said the last 2 issues have severely disappointed and really nothing has fulfilled the promise of the very first.

  3. Considering how Hickman is throwing slight hints (maybe) at FF and Fantastic Four recently on how this is going to tie into each other; my thoughts of dropping the series has suddenly disappeared. Funny how that can happen when someone decides to try and make this slow, and fucking confusing mini relevant again.

  4. Great mini as well, like The Shade.


  5. This series has been so up and down. I really enjoy two in a row and then dislike the next. Really enjoy one then get let down again. But Hickman always brings me back…a vicious cycle. Last month might have been my overall favorite issue yet if not for the weird, senseless banter at the end.

  6. Still in love with this series. Hopefully last issue will make more sense when it’s over. I wonder what Weaver will draw next…

  7. My mind is blown………….

  8. This issue was fucking crazy! I love it! So glad this exists because it seems like it really shouldn’t.

  9. Best issue in awhile for this book, but I’m guessing the end will be phenomenal.

  10. Can someone explain to me the reference of the “Future Marvel” timeline as they were time traveling. I’m talking about the panel where the sentinel is killing old Wolverine. I’m guessing that;s from the “Days of Future Past.” But who are the persons holding hands? Is that Franklin Richards and Hope? Who’s under the Doom mask, Valeria? Are this obscure references something I’ve missed in the Marvel continuity or are this references to Hickiman’s future plans? Thanks

  11. Valeria in Doom’s armour could be a reference to Claremont’s FF as when she first appeared as a grown up from the future (yeah) that’s what she wore. And yeah, Wolvie dying is DOFP. The two people holding hands aren’t from that story, so your guess is as good as mine. That definitely looks like Hope, though.

    Loved that whole sequence, though. Always good to see the Maestro. 🙂

  12. The triple scene at the end was pretty bloody good

  13. Loved the two page spread as the machine traveled into the future.

    However, this series has devolved in Lost-like blah blah blah. Continual exposition without any answers or explanation. Very unsatisfying. If this didn’t have only 2 issues left it would be dropped.
