Until he sets up shop in a welded-together mass of Sentinels…

I wasn't familiar with "The Lady or the Tiger", but a quick Google has me up to speed!

Very pleased to have no ideas as to what Charles and Scott are discussing in the final panel... although I have to say I expect trouble! (But it wouldn't be comics otherwise would it?)

Question: where is Jahf? I don't see him on the last page... which doesn't mean he isn't there, but...

I have to say I've become quite attached to the little guy, much more that I would ever have expected, and will miss him if that is the last we see of him!

I hope the joke I made didn't go astray-- I'd really hoped to be funny with that "until"...

Alt's well that ends well.

Seriously, this may be the Happiest Place on the Internet. What a ride!

It's the little things I love, like Scott pulling off his visor and putting on his glasses in the last two panels. Such a minor detail, but it adds so much life to the art. I love this series.

Thanks!!!

Man, what a fun wrap up to that storyline! JB, you continue to knock it out of the park. This series is the only "real" X-Men series currently being published, in my opinion. The characters are recognizable, things feel familiar, plenty of surprises and it's just plain fun to read!

A mansion was fun while it lasted, but it is also a bit of an old trope going back to Bruce Wayne (at least). The most outlandish secret HQ I can think of was Tracy Island in Thunderbirds, and yet so many kids wanted the playset or the build your own with toilet roll centers, yogurt containers and paper-machie. Best ever might be the Doctor Who Tardis. No doubt lots of space for a music room and a comic library in there!

I was recently reading 1989-90 Avengers where they are having HQ trouble... that tropical island business could've been inspired by Tracy island, and was well written-out... and for awhile they were operating a bit like these X-Men from the basement of their not longer there mansion. My least favorite types of HQ are caves... other than the Batcave; it just seems bizarre to see the most powerful people meeting in some dingy cave someplace, at least as ignominious as that early upside-down rocket Super Hero Club House for the Legion.

Muir Island is great to have around for fall back, but wherever the good mutants locate I expect it will be interesting. :^)

Who said they were relocating? I’m sure the Professor means: “let’s just kill all our enemies!” 😱😱😂😂

Would be neat to see what the alt-X-Men's world does when Galactus comes calling, given the heroes that are left.

Your timeline is off. Galactus arrived long before this. He would have been dealt with by the FF, as originally.

Always loved that scene from UXM - I forget which issue - when the Shi’ar bridge officer reports that this planet has successfully beaten back Galactus twice in recent years and the ship’s captain orders an immediate retreat.
