Boy, was this book a disappointment.

I've never read Zdarsky before but I've heard good things about his Spiderman books, so I had fairly high expectations for this miniseries. What I ended up with was a book where the X-Men act like idiots. For what is essentially a diplomatic mission to the Fantastic Four, Prof X decides to send Wolverine, Magneto and Pyro. Considering that the FF are more

KRAKOA. Every mutant on Earth lives there ... except for one. But now it's time for FRANKLIN RICHARDS to come home.
It's the X-MEN VS. the FANTASTIC FOUR and nothing will ever be the same.

The dialogue was off. More importantly, these characters, with this much history, wouldn’t act that way toward each other. Once I got over that, it was decent.

Just like everything Snyder writes, this run ends with nothing. For a worthless, meaningless story, it lasts too long. Perpetua is a boring, annoying, outdated villain and that makes the JL even dumber. I may be wrong but is Snyder whining about editorial decisions in the story? That's pretty unprofessional and narrow-minded I think since the story is JUST BAD.
