flint_marko: (The Bride)
[personal profile] flint_marko posting in [community profile] scans_daily

In the future we see the X-Men get Dazzler elected as the first mutant president (though the last time we saw Dazzler in the present, Mystique had knocked her out and taken her place, so maybe it was her).

As Dazzler is about to give her speech, several giant monsters attack the capitol, killing her and several others.

In the present, Cyclops and his team are trying to figure out what to do when Illyana and the others return with the other future X-Men.

Hate to say it, so will leave a gif to do it for me

This just... isn't interesting. It's not involving me in any way, and it's not telling a different enough story "The future for the X-Men is horrible, rinse and repeat" to make it worth me trying to work out who is from which timeline and why.

Seriously, its' like bad fanfic: Multiple groups of time displaced X-Men running around, trying avert bad futures, but none one will say WHAT bad future or what kicks it off. I think the only things left on the X-Cliche list are "Evil Gov. Official sics new breed of Sentinel on them", "Bad-guy team up" and "Wolverine goes full berserker".

I like some of the ideas they have been throwing out, Ice Wizard Bobby is neat, but yeah the story is way too much of a 90's event where everyone is talking and so little actually happens.

I feel that way about every event going on at Marvel right now and I even liked a lot of the 90's events. These just feel like badly done retreads of the same stuff.

"And then what?"
Seriously? Hank McCoy going evil is a result of him asking "And then what?"? I just expected more, even from Bendis doing a crossover.
Yes, any hero can have a freak-out when they realize the never-ending battle is never going to end. It has been a plot often enough, usually for "dark future" stories, even SPIDER-MAN: EDGE OF TIME.
I just was expecting more than "I can do everything I can do, and it will never be enough."

I'm so glad we went to the future so we could see future X-Men having the same damn argument over the same damn thing as future, past and present X-men are having in the present time.

Oh look, nothing has changed since last issue. You mean, there's more X-Men in the future? And they're different from the OTHER X-Men from the future? LE GASP!

This story seems like it's just 90% faffing around. When is actual stuff gonna happen?

I'm sorry, is no one else curious why Colossus called Jubilee Wolverine? Given her demeanor and the energy claws are we to assume some sort of mindswap/meld has taken place?

Joining the bandwagon of people who hate the obfuscation of the plot here, it's really annoying. Plus, wouldn't the obvious solution be to tell the present day characters what they need to know and then just have Quentin Quire mindwipe them after the crisis has been averted? I mean, the dude is a telepath and the current host of the Phoenix Force from the looks of it, so there's no reason that he shouldn't be able to pull it off.

I presumed that Jubilee took on Wolverine's codename and made/sourced an energy version of his claws after he died (in the future) to keep his legacy going. I actually liked the idea of that.

(If anything 'stuck' out of this entire thing, I wouldn't mind it being the Ice Wizard look, though. Although main timeline's Bobby isn't really old enough to pull it off.)

I think this is pretty interesting, because for the first time (except maybe a Cable story I'm not sure about) the problem isn't that the future is bad, simply that it isn't good enough.

Going to have to disagree with everyone here. I'm liking this crossover so far. This and the last Uncanny issue are the weakest (though this one mostly because its very short and just filler between the last and next issues), but overall this event's been pretty good. Its not Curse of the Mutants good, but its definitely not the worst X-Men story I've read, and sure beats Infinity and reads better than Age of Ultron. I quite like the twist with it being the badguys going back in time, not the good guys, to fix things; it certainly plays with the norm.

Plus, steel-stache! Sir Robert! Quire on fire! This future X-Men is awesome. Switch that Phoenix fire to the regular, burny-kind of fire, and I'd read a book with these X-Men in.
