Kid Nova's death here is something- two panels of seeing a fifteen-year-old kid's head get pulped by a mad old extremist twit.

(The course of his life in this universe is sobering, too- gets a space hat, finds out a hint of his father's life, and then dies. So does everything else shortly thereafter, but still.)

Any character killing a child is a serious, life-changing moment and should be treated accordingly.

Magneto killing a child should be even moreso... this is just... well, this is just like the rest of this mess; poorly thought out and clumsily executed.

Not that it matters, but how did Xavier do that while Magneto still had his helmet on?

Xavier was able to overpower Dark Phoenix before the Shiar got involved.

I assume that his transformation into Magnix (Phoeneto?) and his new outfit, he might have felt now that he was empowered by a cosmic psychic entity he wouldn't need the helmet circuitry any more so why wear something that might conceivably hamper his powers?

Did he have his helmet before this? I thought he was without it.

So it could be just for looks without the nuances of the original.

Wait a fucking minute here.

This is NOT "What If the X-Men vs Avengers" (or whatever its called) its actually "What if Logan got his fondest wish?"

ALL this nonsense for what in essence has become a Jean/Logan fan-fic?

There have been worse what ifs, but this one is definitely at the top.

Stuff like this convinces me that writers are basically the same as fanfic writers, regardless of the editors. You got the Big Names, and you got the ones who are going "screw everything. I like this pairing and in my universe it is Tru Luv 4eva!" Everything in the Scott/Emma/Jean/Logan quadrangle seems juvenile.

This is a horrible story and that ending is awful.

But Magneto's Phoenix Force costume is pretty cool

Y'know, I could just imagine this was one of the last realities Uatu looked at before Original Sin.

Suddenly his Suicide by Fury makes a helluva lot more sense...

The last page implies that these two will conceive and bear all those heroes shown above them, or what.

Really, for 'What If,' they shouldn't have done *one* possibility, but 2-4 different ones over the course of the mini.

Wow, that was much worse.

Is there a "What If" version of the first Civil War? I want to see if Marvel is capable of making something even more terrible.

What about the one where the Annihilation Wave shows up? Doesn't that count as a Civil War What If...?

I'd be content with the post just being Nova's reaction when he realises that the reason none of Earth's heroes have helped fight the Annihilation Wave was their squabble over their secret identities.

There is no reason why this needed to be 4 issues. No reason at all.

He's just rewritten reality using the Phoenix Force, he's not tall, he's just recreated Jean as being shorter than she was..

It should take a very special, beautifully wrought Elseworlds by creators at the top of their game to justify a four issue "What if...?"

This is not that... this is the exact opposite of that...

This is not a "What if ? AvX" this is "So what....? WTF?"

I'm not too bothered by the outcome, considering it is just a What If...?, but four issues to this point does seem a bit much.

Out of curiosity, how did Magneto take out the red Hulk in what I assume is a panel or two?
