Not as epic as Earth X or Universe X, 6 Jun 2009
This volume is the last installment in the X trilogy(Earth X, Universe X and Paradise X) by the same authors.
The premise that started this last volume was excellent; as throuout the saga the moral dilemmas are there, getting more and more complex as pages turn. However about half way through the volume II the big eversurprising picture starts wearing out really quick.
Ross and Krueger were told by Marvel they epic was ending earlier than they had expected so the end seems to be rushed and none consequencial to earlier events in the saga even leaving many loose ends.
Ross admitted he was not fond of many of the heroes making apperiances through the whole Universe-Paradise X archs. It can be seen as sheer fan power to include them in this multiverse X; such as Wolverine and it clearly makes no justice to this character or many others forced in the storylines.
Overall the X trilogy has been the most complex superhero reading I have found in the last years, I enjoyed every page of it specially the dicussions between X-51 and Uatu in Earth X.
Not the classical superhero with superpowers against the overscheming villain. All volumes are written and drawn by guys thinking outside the box coming up with the biggest picture ever in the Marvel universe.
The trilogy is a must read for anyone who was ever into Marvel and wants to read a version of their book of Relevations.
