    To summarise - the concept sucks, the story sucks, the dialogue sucks, the art sucks. Hopefully will utterly die on its arse & dissuade Marvel from putting out any more crap like this.
    I agree. They couldn't just leave well enough alone.

He then came out of the stupor 3 days later not knowing where the hell he was and then walked out of the tomb and was like WTF.

    The prequel to that prequel and the final act in the trilogy will me X-men Iliad where we find out that prior to his powers manifesting, Wolverine was in fact a young Greek warrior named Achilles. Afer he as presumably killed, he was cremated but his powers manifested and he regenerated his body from his burnt ashes and was found by a young boy named Romulus and they spend the next few years as sworn brothers wondering the world. Now going by the name Remus, they venture to Italy and after a quarrel Remus Wolverine pops his claw for the first time and accidentally kills Romulus. He then founds the city of Rome naming it after Romulus and over time the story gets confused. He then establishes the Roman Empire which lays the foundation for all of Western Civilization. What a guy.
    You forgot about the reason why Remus Wolverine popped his claws. He found Romulus "training" a young Asian/Black/ethnic minority girl with red hair, he rather fancied. Remus Wolverine, a day earlier had given the little girl a doll made of straw and cow dung, to which Remus Wolverine believed married him to her. So Remus Wolverine got jealous and sadly, this caused a schism.

    Yes and interesting enough Marvel (or whoever sends out their books) sent some comic book stores in my too many copies. So many that some stores are giving it out for free. I bought a bunch of back issues of books and got a free copy.

    Looking at the responses to this comic I'm really glad I didn't buy it. I was tempted, really tempted. But went for Hawkeye instead, a character I don't care about, especially compared to some people in this mini. Think I may have made the right decision there

    Now Xavier is the Gilderoy Lockhart of the X-Men, too.

    Pick another pinata, Marvel writers, oh my god :((((

    If I was on Twitter I would start some kind of #SAVEXAVIER movement.

    Just ridiculous. He wasn't this much of a useless jerk when he was made out to be big bad Onslaught. What gives?

    That page of Kitty proclaiming "Professor Xavier is a jerk!" must be prominently displayed somewhere in the X-Office.

    From the other thread:

    The chimp-faces-with-plastic-vampire-teeth thing started to make me weary about halfway through, along with Wolverine being the tallest man in the city besides vampire chimp Sabretooth. I'm usually fine with pointless retcons, I don't really care normally, I like The Sentry books a lot and have never cared much about the various Jean retcons, but wowww this sucked.

    Am I understanding the posts here and in the other thread correctly, that this somehow makes sense or is enjoyable to "X-Men First Class" movie fans?

    Honestly I was actually tempted to give it a shot. That's how little Marvel's been impressing me lately.

    Sounds like it was bad though. Would give it a shot for free but I would not pay for it now.

    Eeew. The guy who slaughtered Native Americans and was a Nazi spy encouraged Xavier about unity and tolerance and get his lazy ass out of that wheelchair. Gross.

    I think Marvel is overestimating the vocal internets dislike for Cyclops (and Jean) and Logans popularity by making Wolverine the first X-Man. We really need the rolleyes smiley to return if this keeps up.

I mean not only have they made him a douche in the recent books. Now someone decided to have as a premise for an entire new book, let's go back in time and turn Xavier into a douche whose contribution to the world was stolen from Wolverine, lol.

    Someone in a wheelchair ran over Quesadas foot?
