I felt rather disappointed with this mini. I guess it's another case of wanting what the mini was sold to me as rather than what Claremont felt like doing (a similar thing happened to GenNext, which was a result on a Marvel poll. I voted for "What if all the X-Men aged in real time since their debut." What we got was "Hey, remember X-Men: The End that long story you didn't like? You want a sequel to that, starring their kids, don't you?")

This one I wanted a story of what might have happened if Claremont had never left, tackling ongoing plot threads, etc. I was particularly hoping for some continuation of the Hellions/NM interaction that the book left off with.

Instead, I feel like we just got a miniseries set in the past full of random Claremont stuff, like he couldn't remember any of his plans and so just jumped on a new plot. Suddenly, Red Skull!

I guess maybe it's unfair, some of it probably is something along the lines of what his plans were, just none of it that interests me.
