Like much of Rosenberg's work, this feels like very big plot ideas draped in ill-fitting storytelling. I can see what he's getting at and what the story is he's trying to tell, but what's on the page often doesn't really feel like it connects to that. Big moments feel like bullet points in a plot outline rather than logical dramatic culminations. It's too bad, because his love for the franchise more

It all ends here. This is forever! As Cyclops' cleanup mission nears its close, all the problems the X-Men face come together. The truth behind the Hellfire Club's intentions, the culmination of the O.N.E.'s assaults on mutantkind and even the inner struggles within the team... It all ends here. This is forever.

The whole premise of this arc was silly. Doom saps Galactus' power to power Latveria? Seriously? And Doom is going to give the stolen power cosmic to someone other than himself? The characterizations were pretty good, but that was about it. Also, am I mistaken, or didn't Kirby or someone else establish that Doom's face only had the mildest of scars and it was his own warped ego that made him thin more

I liked the art style, which reminded me of Matt Wagner, but the panel-to-panel storytelling was so awkward that I kept stopping to try to figure out what the story was trying to convey. The writing has to share the blame on that point; it jumps around, never offers enough hints to make its meaning penetrable, and sometimes almost feels like sentences have been sprinkled into the panels like a cu more

Fine on its own merits, if a bit wordy. I can't get too worked up over another grand valiant sacrifice in battle by an Asgardian, though. They never stick, and they always play out the same way, going all the way back to Skurge in Simonson's run and probably even farther.
