  1. I. . .think I’m glad I skipped this crossover.  But I might check this out for the epilogues.  I like the way Carey has written Scott & Rogue and if they’re fighting, I’m sad, but it sounds interesting and I wonder how it sets up the next arc of Legacy.

    I’m glad that the moral of X-Force seems to have been that X-Force was a bad idea, but it seems a little disingenuous that Marvel spent a couple years making bank off that book and now is all, "But it was WRONG."  Ahem, I may have issues. 

  2. I don’t mind the fact that they’re fighting, it’s just that I’m not sure what pissed Cyke off so much. I might have to go back and reread this, but if it wasn’t as if Rogue was a complete cock up. If it wasn’t for her, after all, Hope wouldn’t be alive.


    Looking back on the story, I don’t think I would have minded if I skipped this crossover. There wers some good scenes (especially the ones with Nightcrawler up to his death), but I came to this story for Hope. I feel that Hope’s characterization and exploration should have been the main focus of this story, but it seemed to be the least important thing. We don’t know how or why she is the Messiah, the only thing we learned from this is "yes, she is." So yeah, skipping this wouldn’t cause me to shed too much tears, but I had a decent time reading this. I just didn’t think I’d have to ask for more Hope in a story that’s named after her.

  3. The idea of the book wasn’t a bad idea. I believe it made Marvel money. The idea of the X-men officially endorsing a kill squad is a bad one for many of the characters involved, but perhaps a believeable mistake.

    As for Hope, expect a two year drawn out mystery of her origins, a la the Rulk. Yes, it has already been two years. You may sigh now.
