The dramatic conclusion to the series everyone is talking about! Featuring Punisher! Thanos! Punisher! AND Thanos! Plus a few more surprises, some terrible deaths...and maybe a little redemption? Sounds unlikely given who we're talking about.

I found this issue quite boring and is it just me or is Nick Spencer avoiding character interaction between Pete and MJ? We have had so little since they got back together, it is always how much they love one another or interrupted by another character. It makes it difficult to care that they have got back together.

• There's been a major theft the likes of which we've never seen and for once, The Black Cat didn't do it.

Before she was Magik, Illyana Rasputin was just a kid whom Limbo chewed up and spit out seven years older. So it's no surprise that, at 15, she wants nothing to do with the X-Men...nothing to do with the New Mutants...and nothing to do with her own powers. It's not even surprising that she runs away... but where - and who - she ends up? Well, that'...

The worst story arc in comics is one that the reader doesn't care about. It doesn't have to be bad, it doesn't have to be relatively decent, but its story makes readers just indifferent, uninterested, apathetic.

Robinson "accomplished" that in his issues of Detective Comics. I don't care about anything that happens in these books, and I'd rather see the story ending already, and new one more

The conclusion reminds me a lot of Catch-22 (maybe SPOILERS)...The only way to win for Scott is to let go. I thoroughly enjoyed this issue and this series, despite and maybe because of the lack of straightforward-ness. Extra time spent on the art, particularly coloring and backgrounds, made it well worth the wait!

I like it, but the implications are iffy to me.
So cliffhanger from last issue is mostly ignored. And really the most logical interpretation is that Scot is chained by Anti Life Equasion, and everything that he has, his family and life is a lie made up in his mind. Okay. And he decides not to break chains and live his life inside the illusion, I kinda understood that he's troubled individual more
