    Phoenix returns, but its not really what i was expecting. Storm is in like, and iron lung and i got the impression that her and wolverine had hooked up. Scott and Emma have a baby. :o

    He's Scott's son, but he has already been born in the current X-Men timeline. He was sent to the future to cure him of a virus, and then returned to the present timeline. That's why he's older than Scott is now.

    That's the really, really abreviated version.

    IMO

    I would agree, but I thought "Here Comes Tomorrow" was really weak. I'm not sure where this "The End" series is going, but I had trouble connecting with the first issue. I also really hated that Claremont included Slipstream, the lame-ass character from lame-ass X-Treme X-Men.

    It's kinda too bad Claremont opted to indulge all his little "pet" X-Men elements: The Shi'ar, Phoenix, a strong female lead, Genosha, future prophecies - all the things he goes back to again and again every time he writes the book.

    The last X-Men story should be an answer to the question of whether Xavier or Magneto was right - not some prophecy-filled, sci-fi soap opera with the fate of the universe hanging in the balance. Completely misses the point of the whole series, IMO. Not impressed by the Claremont wank-fest that is issue #1.

    well since we havent seen the whole story how do you know it's not about Xavier or Magneto being right...this is a very long series...think of it like the Hobbit where a small plot device started the Lord of the Rings...this is just book one

    Right. But the stage is set in the first chapter. The story can't go off on a completely different track, otherwise it'll be a disjointed mish-mash. I'm sure Magneto will show up in some way, but it's clear the overall story is going to involve the daughter of Bishop and Deathbird and the prophecy surrounding her - which will ultimately involve Phoenix and the Shi'ar. Those are the playing pieces on the board.

    Why is that stupid? I myself am NOT a completist (I would be if it wasn't for that horrid District X series), but I can understand why one would be a completist from a collector's point of view.

    taking my Hobbit analogy further...The Hobbit was about a group of Dwarfs and a hobbit trying to recover treasure.....The Lord of The Rings was about the Hobbit's relative trying to destroy the ring and a major war....two separate happenings.......X-men:the end book one is setting the stage which will go into book 2
