    1) Kitty likes the dark side. Pete Wisdom, anyone?
    2) Her future self was on the bad/ends-justify-the-means side.

    In short, she's not all puppies and unicorns and rainbows.

    Captain Universe killed ALL the Builders? I did not get that impression at all.

    Sorry for doubting you Light.

    I saw what captain Universe did in the flash back but I struggled to remember actually reading it happen.

    You have to remember, that for an entire species, there was only a handful of Builders et all.

    Who wants to give me a sleazy and inappropriate high five for Sam and Smasher hooking up?

    They did some smashing, all right...!

    If Captain Universe killing a couple Builders was the true turning point of the war, than that's pretty anti-climactic. All the loss and struggle and the planets working together didn't really mean anything, but this one god-like character on the team just washes the problem away? I thought Ex Nihilo leading a revolution of Gardeners would have made a lot more sense, one led by Captain Universe if need be.

    Not to mention the fact that in New Avengers we learned that there are other Builders in the other universes, so basically defeating this batch only accounts for like 1% of them.

    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.

    It's getting torn up on the CBR boards also. Seems the overwhelming conclusion is "why did I fall for this 'event' schtick again".

    I would have enjoyed the little homage to the cover of X men 1 if it hadn't been so crappily drawn.

    Battle of the Atom just kind of spun its wheels, went nowhere, then stopped. The only thing that happened was the Kitty and the O5 changed Bendis books. Now they're in the one I was getting ready to drop. Grr...

    It's almost like they had your house bugged.

    Marvel working hand in hand with the NSA to make comics better!

    You mean Axel Alonso. Joe QueSada isn't running the publishing part of Marvel.

    That's what they want you to think.

    Joe Q hasn't been Editor in Chief since he was promoted and Double A was appointed as his successor back in 2011. Joe Q has the equivalent of Geoff Johns position at DC as Chief Creative Officer.

    I read somewhere that the new DD series gong to be digital only (digital first?).

    I think I might be the only one who enjoyed BoTA. It definitely had it's bumps along the way, and could have been told in far less issues I feel (they certainly wasted a lot of time in the beginning). But I liked it, and out of it I've decided to collect "Uncanny X-Men" to the chagrin of a friend of mine who doesn't really care for Bendis' writing on it (you know who you are ;)).

    I read Waid was going to do a two-issue digital only epilogue to his DD run.
    Then the reboot is regular print.

    Yeah just the epilogue or as they called it "coda" is digital only. The actual final arc is still print.

    Is this punishment for a poor run, or incentive for the dinosaurs to discover the internet?

    ^ Most likely the latter since Waid's run has been awesome :) Marvel's been slowly pushing their digital content now.
