    All in all, its a mixed issue, and one which has not gone to any great lengths to win me over on the whole House of M event. Whilst I admire the way Marvel has handled such a large crossover (I admire the way the core title subtly references events from tie-in issues without ever making them feel like essential reads), my simple reaction is that the House of M concept just isnt enough to justify such a huge ballyhoo. What might have made for a neat Avengers or X-Men story has been ill-served by the amount of hype and marketing which has gone into its creation, and perhaps this has made a certain degree of disappointment in the series inevitable.

    * This is not a spoiler. It's been patently obvious from the first issue that Quicksilver's behind this new reality. That'll be the big twist, you see. The heroes will be going to kill Magneto for this, but it was Quicksilver all along! How clever! Read Full Review
