If that is suppossed to be Sabretooth, he's definitely getting on in years.

You know how it is, without Logan around to look pretty for, he's just letting himself go a little.

He was aged by the High Evolutionary or one of his evil scientists (I forgot) and I wonder whether they will keep him in that state to make him distinct from his evil persona.

It was Wanda and Pietro's new 'sister'. She has that power now. She pulled it out of her ass in that one scene and now Sabretooth looks like that.

Creed looked about his normal self in Rage of Ultron, which is supposed to be after all this and Secret Wars, so I'm pretty sure it's temporary.

That's a relief! If I may ask, do you know what series is Marvel publishing that take place post-Secret Wars?

Currently just that story, a graphic novel by Rick Remender and Jerome Opena that came out just a little before Age of Ultron came out in theaters, and the two FCBD stories. Everything else is either taking place during the Final Incursion, like Ms. Marvel and Magneto, or take place in Battleworld.

That cover looks like the High Evolutionary is taking a dump on planet Earth.

Not all of its comics, and hardly just Marvel.

This series has so many pacing issues.

I mean, aside from the general story ideas I have issues with, wtf is wrong with the story structure!?

Brother Voodoo has literally been talking to the same ghost people for 4 straight issues! He has been left at whereever he is just so everyone's going to run to him, use his ghost army to beat the High Evolutionary goons, and go back to earth. He is their taxi, parked at the exit. And has done nothing else.

Sabretooth spent over half the time on Counter-Earth brainwashed and chained up to Wanda and Pietro's shiny-new sister.

Rogue was strapped to a chair having Simon exorcised out of her somehow for 3 issues at least.

Vision was being a man-whore, which I can tolerate if the biggest question about his little story arc was resolved. Why does the High Evolutionary have androids exactly like him? Why is there a facsimile city with 'families of androids(?)'? Why didn't Vision wonder about this? Why didn't Vision attack or something when the High Evolutionary appeared before him?

The twins don't even angst one moment and took the High Evolutionary's words at face value. Why didn't they ask him about the whole Magda issue? Like how does it fit with Magda Maximoff running to Bova and birthing her twins? Was Magda ever really there, where are her babies then if they're not Wanda and Pietro? Are those twins dead, did Bova lie, was Bova misled? What happened!?

And what part in the timeline is that flashback scene with Magneto even suppose to be? In the original scene, he revealed their parentage in front of them and Vision and Crystal. He says Pietro's 'life is in shambles', but in the original scene, Pietro was actually pretty happy (pre-affair Crystal and he got over Vision and Wanda being married). What exactly is Magneto referring to at all here?

Most of all, the biggest question this series has is - OMG, why are we still here, why are they fighting a war they have no part of, for bunch of characters we don't care about, for a cause they have no investment in!?

They're all going to die in incursions. Outside this bizarre little time bubble of wasted time, Secret Wars has already happened. There's no investment in any of these minor characters. Their death is a forgone conclusion. The only people I care about are the actual Avengers but Remender does his damnest to not focus on them, answer the questions he himself brought up, or give any kind of introspection or character development for arguably the two characters this whole mess was made for!

It's like Remender got given the corporate mandate to create some slapdash story thing to shove the twins' new origins, and honestly did not care for anyone else except Vision getting more stuff to do. He shelved every other person in the damn team for the last 4 issues! He even used Counter-Earth so whatever he does, it wouldn't affect the actual 'main plot' of the Marvel universe happening back on Earth.

He didn't bring his A-game at all, you can tell Remender really doesn't care for this series. And I know he can put in pretty serviceable work if he cares to (I actually like Rage of Ultron).

There is so much not-caring put into this whole mess...and I think it's because Secret Wars. Everyone dies in incursions, all previous plot threads are being erased. So why bother, right?

There again, this is them catching up to "Axis" because their goddamned Apocalypse Twins storyline dragged on for donkey's years.

They're well past AXIS at this point.
