After House of M the X-Men series is total shit. It basically consists of them sitting around in the mansion going "OH MAN, THERE ARE SO FEW OF US NOW... MAN, ONLY SO MANY OF US. WAIT WAIT WAIT, CYCLOPS IS SUPPOSED TO KILL OFF AN ALIEN CIVILIZATION? MAN JOSS WHEADON IS A TERRIBLE WRITER." It doesn't tie into the rest of the Marvel Universe and I really see no purpose in reading it. The art is all X-TREME AND LOOK AT DEEZ LINEZZZZ, which I hate.
