Issue Review
 
Redsvetz
   December 17, 2013
This is one of those milestone story arcs in the history of the Marvel Universe. You know, one of those tales that gets transmogrified in your brain to legendary status. Holy shit! They’re making a movie based on the concepts originated in this issue—so let’s do the time warp again:

Cover: Wolvie, claws drawn and trying to shield a frightened Kitty, definitely sets the tone for a hopeless issue! The clinical, “wanted” style portraits of our favorite mutants listed as slain or apprehended further ups the ante of desperation. Even the X-Men logo looks bleak, although at this point, the washed out colors make this “iconic” cover look a bit dated.

Splash page: I love it when the title is worked into the background, and what a cool title it is!

  Does anyone else think the faces on most of the female characters looks weird? It seems to me like something either having to do with the eyes or the simplicity of their facial features compared to the male characters.

  It's been years since I've read this. Reading it today, I just noticed the year that Days of Future Past was originally taking place in - 2013!

  Been waiting awhile to read this story. Was interesting, to say the least. Gotta say, though, I really wish they'd drop the "Evil" from "Brotherhood of Evil Mutants". It would be much easier to take them seriously that way.

  Fantastic writing, one of Chris's very best scripts! The plot to this legendary saga was simple and yet so damn ccomplex! Kitty is finally breaking out as a character here! Oh, here we meet the new Brotherhood of Evil Mutants; Mystique (awesome villian), Pyro, Avalanche and the creepy, Destiny. Man, who doesn't like this classic? Even the future takes place in 2013! How awesome is that!?

  So good! I'm terrified for the movie adaptation...

  Gram91- that's just how John Byrne draws.

  Imagine if they had sent Wolverine back instead of Kitty and then make a movie about that.

  Kind of underwhelming. Goofy danger room scene and goofy villains spoil the soup a tad.

  Some of the dialog left a lot to be desired, and the "Danger Room" scene did nothing for the story. Other than that, though, a really good read.

  Yes. This was a fun read. The danger room is still stupid. I understand it's purpose, but it's a little tiring to see it at the begining of every new story line.

  This was really good, but not as unbelievably great as I'd been told. 4 stars.

  One of the best books I've read so far in the order. 5 stars.

  I wonder if this Rachel's family ties had been planned at this point in the story. She isn't given a last name here...

  This was such a fantastic issue. It could have been an epic masterpiece if it had happened in like 100 issues. But when you consider that this issue also introduced mutant discrimination as a major line of the x-men stories, or Mistique as one of the central characters, Magneto as one of the good guys, among other things, it's no wonder that the issue has the highest rating I've so far in the order.
