    Holy fuck. :bowdown::bowdown::cool::cool::cool::hs::hs::wtc::wtc::wtc:


    What a fucking close to the Whedon/Cassaday run. Totally worth the wait. God.

    I was let down, until Kitty Pryde died then I was like ok, I'm back in.

    Having all the Marvel characters get all cozy in that space fortress or whatever kinda was annoying and didn't seem to fit with all that was going on in the previous 24 issues.

    Yeah... he could've used them a lot better, but I still thoroughly enjoyed that issue. I wonder what that one panel with the hand was about at the end.

    It was really great, but didn't really fit with the whole continuity... Yes, i know Astonishing operates out of that, but that's mainly been with just the X-Men team. Weren't they at that point all still against each other? And they still are to this point, atleast to Secret Invasion. It just stuck out as like a sore thumb, that's all.

    Otherwise, a fantastic ending to a great saga :)

    Against each other? I believe this was pre-Messiah Complex. Which would explain the absence of Kitty and Peter.

    Oh and bowdown to ord. That was awesome. I think I'm going to re-read this actually becuase I feel as though I dreamed half of the stuff I want to complain about.

    I meant the other superheroes. It's not pre-civil war, so, it wouldn't make much sense to have them all there.

    They kind of covered that with this half assed reason. That stretch of the comic seemed a bit "oh explain it with magic" kind of shit. The way it was done seemed like they were trying to parody comics in a way. with their quick solution to saving the day, banding together against all odds cliche comic book ending, then all that was rendered pointless by magic.

    all of this happened WAY before messiah complex, this issue took place probably right around WWH. since the x-men/hulk mini had the astonishing cast in it, sans kitty. i knew right then that she wasn't the one coming back.

    :werd: I hope Agent Brand gets used more. I hope she has a nice piece to play in Secret Invasion.

    Which also leads me to wonder... since SI takes place long after these events.... and Beast seemingly joined S.W.O.R.D ..... why wasn't he on the Peak when it blew? :noes:
