I’ve dipped my toe in the X-Men before – I’ve even seen one of the movies (the second one.) This is allegedly one of the most impressive story arcs (and one that’ll get referenced in an upcoming, you guessed it, Trek/X-Men crossover) so I picked up a copy of this in trade paperback for a song at Comic-Con to check it out.

The fact of the matter is that I’m just not that much of a fan of this era’s Marvel comics. While there is an inkling of actual hard SF time travel mindf@&i#ng going on here, it is mostly just fighting and horrible thought bubbles and narration. I know Marvel comics are as important to some as original Trek is to me, but I just can’t connect to this on any real level
