Really curious how the What If... X-Men crossed over into "our" reality.

Great teaser while we deal with the (surviving) Shi'Ar Imperial Guard deal with the X-Men.

I am really looking forward to the new stories after JB's completed his "house cleaning" of getting to the new status quo.

I think as a one time thing, ersatz versions of the Distinguished Competition's characters are fine.  They can make nice Easter eggs.  And given Cockrum's earlier work, they were just fine when they first appeared.  But when they show up again and become part of the repertory cast of the universe, they need to be distinguished as characters and become more than just copies of whoever they were meant to be.  

Even though JB obviously does not care for the LSH copies, he's certainly put more effort into doing the necessary work into making the Guard concept a "Marvel" one than any other creator I can think of.

Love these cliffhangers even if I feel now like I'm going into another episode of Star Trek.  Geez, they have wrung every drop out of that one alternate universe haven't they over the years.  Where is Magneto's goatee? :)

JB, have you confirmed that these strange-looking bracelets or braces on Mag-Man Beast are a version of claws or blades ? What colour have you thought of for those -if it's not too much of a reveal. I'm amateurishly colouring the printed pages and would like to know. Same for Jean's control suit by the way...

Once again, a truly gorgeous read. Thank you so much for sharing this masterpiece. Nothing I've read in the last fey years from the company who handles this specific fictional universe can hold a candle to this series (an I regretted wasting my money on those books).
The "living D'Bari salad" was a really overwhelming revelation. So logical, and yet... never figured out before (as far as I know).
