I was sort of surprised to see that Wolverine was already away from the other heroes at the beginning of this issue. I was expecting a bit of a big fight between the remaining heroes and he but I was mistaken. He must have just been able to waltz up to the time machine and blast into the past to kill Hank Pym. Although I find it a little hard to believe, it did speed up the inevitable. The portion of the book that deals with Sue Storm and Wolverine is quite good actually. There seems to be a lot of struggling going on in their minds (which is delved into deeper in Wolverine and the X-Men #27 AU) and the end result is actually a bit surprising.
As for the heroes in the future, it does not seem to be going too well. They are down a body since Sue decided to bomb after Wolverine and Ultron was more than ready to stop anyone that tried to infiltrate his city. There are some incredibly graphic and well drawn pages that make the heart skip a beat and question what is going to happen next.
I think that is the main thing now...what is going to happen next? Something big happened in both the past and the future. What does it mean for the present? The fact that I actually care is saying something about how this is turning out. This issue may be the turning point for me from just feeling meh about the whole event to actually starting to enjoy it. I am looking forward to the next issue and am glad that the wait is not going to be too long.
