Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Now that I've read X-Men: Battle of the Atom #2...

If the idea was to celebrate 50 years of X-Men history, this was a horrible, horrible project.

I won't repeat my litany of complaints from the last two months. This issue seemed to have been designed more to set up future plotlines than to resolve outstanding plot threads.

I guess Jean-Xorn is the young Jean Grey, who never returned to the past, all grown up. That seems like a logical implication of the last two issues.

I'm not bothered by Kitty Pryde's decision at the end. Nor of the decision of the original five to throw in with Cyclops.

In the final analysis, Battle of the Atom is something I cannot recommend.
