  1. Does this book ever have 2 issues in a row by a single artist?

  2. Rafa Sandoval? Oh awesome! This book will at least look great.

  3. I’m not reading this but was curious, isn’t Magento like 40 years older than Rogue?

  4. I’m glad I jumped back on.

    @Brianmaru Yup. But in half of the alternate realities they are together.

  5. I’m on the fence with this one.  I stopped reading this book b/c I didn’t like what Carey was doing, but then I jumped back on for “Age of X”.  I was planning on staying on, but I just don’t know if I can read another “look back” at Magneto’s origin.  Didn’t he just have an Origins mini & the 2nd issue of Schism prelude devoted to that?  If it looks to be too heavy on Magneto’s past then I might skip this issue.  We’ll see. 

  6. the way that whole paragraph reads, “the horrors of his past” seems like it would be his own actions as Magneto, mutant terrorist, not the Holocaust stuff.

  7. Interestingly, I feel exactly the same as you do, @zattaric. Honestly, though, after last week (which was MASSIVE), I’m not really in the mood to buy another book I don’t really care about. 

  8. Carey’s been on this book forever and I can’t remember him not being good on it. Another year and this will become his longest run on a book

  9. I was pretty satisfied with last issue.  I really felt like this is a chance for a title to have a “major event” (Age of X) that actually has some impact on the title itself after it ends – which unfortunately doesn’t always happen as the the formula seems to be blockbuster event, awkward but tidy wrap up, never mention it again.  all of the characters are dealing with living a lifetime in a week and the memories left over, and it seems like Carey is giving it the time it’s worth in letting a great story arc linger beyond its requisite marketing campaign.  definitely looking forward to this one.

  10. ive been very critical of Carey’s run but this was a great issue. plus, Rafa Sandoval, who is an amazing artist.

  11. this was on my maybe list going to the store and i ended up buying it (mainly figuring I would want to get #250 so might as well not miss this issue).  any ways it ended up being one of my favorite comics this week.  I really liked how it had the seperate stories about the characters, they are really setting up some interesting stuff.

  12. I agree with the sentiment about Age Of X being an event that really had lasting effects and implications. After finishing the main story, I definitely felt a bit cold in that it had a very unsatisfying ending. Though, after reading this and the previous issue, it seems that these are the TRUE endings (hence the aftermath banner) and makes the alternate U story much more satisfying. I hope that these two issues are collected in the eventual Age Of X trade, because without these aftermath issues, it doesn’t feel like the story really ended.
