I lost Interest in the X-Men after the 1980s. I thought I would buy this book to see if I could get more interested in later storylines, and while I liked moments of it, mostly I was reminded why I lost interest. Creating alternate universes often seems to me to be a somewhat desperate attempt to keep old characters fresh. And I often find that in alternative universe sagas I have a difficult time connecting much to the human side of the characters - in this story arc in particular, the individual characters seemed overwhelmed by the plot. All that said, if you are a big X-Men fan, this is probably a decent enough story to be entertaining.
