Is this worth the $29.99? I've never read any of the AoA stories.
icemastertron said:What's good is that Bryan Hitch drew for it, too. At least I think. I saw some Dark Beast drawing of his in a handbook.
What's good about it, DB? I would have to say (IMO) that it gives us a story where Apocalypse actually reigns, and its not so peechy as the stories would be compared to it where he doesnt win. And seeing other heroes as bad guys, is a cool tiny twist, too. As well as different "takes" on characters like Cyclops and Havok, yet their coreness is still the same.
Pretty much. It wouldn't exist if it wasn't for an event in 616.DIrishB said:So in essence it was an Ultimate like series, just branched off 616 in an alternate timeline with lasting effects in the regular 616 timeline. I've just heard a lot about it and wondered.

It was just to show how the world is at the point. It was an anniversary event (10 years) because the event did really well back than. And yes, they are in the same multi-verse.DIrishB said:This is true. And what was the point of the sequel (besides making money)? Do they go back to that alternate reality or something? Or does it just show whats been going on in the AoA reality (assuming 616 and the AoA worlds are in the same multi-verse).

What do you mean it wasnt part of the original series?Nurhachi said:I only got to read the 2 X-Men AoA titles, as well as X-Men Alpha and X-Men Omega. In 10 years never forgot about them, it was one of the greatest stories ive ever read. I had been hoping theyde make trades of it. Dunno bout book 1, since that wasnt part of the original series, but i'll be getting book2 onwards
