The 3rd Volume in this set of four is glittered with great script and impressive artwork. Reprinting what many comic book fans consider the ultimate x-men storyline. Forget what you know about the x-men. This is unlike anything before it. As Magneto struggles between the love love of his children and the possibility of fulfilling a friends dream of equality. Elsewhere Scott Summers must chose his loyalty to that of a despot and thye love of a terrorist. This a world turned on its head and for some it the way it should have been all along.

The only think I didn't like about this book was the art work for I think Factor X. I didn't know any of the characters from anything else I'd read and the art just isn't my cup of tea. It doesn't fit this series in my opinon.
However, the rest of the art work is AMAZING! Several really great moments. Steve Skroce's work on whatever book he's drawing and Jeph Loeb writes that one two (though I feel the writers here are working to adhere to a unified representation of the project rather than trying out new things or writing in their own styles).
Other amazing art is the work on The Astonishing X-Men run. There are two of the books sandwhiched into the third part of the AoA and it's fantastic. I like this part best because I think I know the X-Men starring in it best.
Great ending. Should have ended it a few pages sooner in my opinion but you can't have everything.
