What do you guy's think about it? I think as an event it was solid, but nothing special. And honestly I don't feel like anything truly significant happened. It never could shake that Age of Apocalypse: Redux vibe for me. I really felt like Carey was just playing dress up with the X-Men and mutants on Utopia. While I enjoyed Legion choosing reality and actively controlling "Moira" I feel a story about Legion better handling his many personalities could've been done without all the hype of this event. Once the "final" battle began I felt no true sense of gravitas or danger, because well, if Legion made this world, then he could fix it and restore the 616 timeline. I just didn't feel like anything actually happened within the event itself. And I don't foresee any lasting change coming out of this. Sure everyone will remember their/lives in the age of X & I'm sure that Frenzy's feelings for Scott will hold so that she can have some drama in Legacy, but I don't see how this truly affects the X Universe? This was at it's core, one big dream sequence that certainly didn't need to drag on for 6 issues. The most intriguing thing to come out of this was the Age of X Warpath, Chamber,& Phoenix crossing over into the 616 universe. But even that I don't going anywhere big. Maybe Mike Carey will prove me wrong in the future, but I feel like this story was a whole lot nada. Was it a solid read, yes, most certainly. But did it matter, no, at least that's the case as of now.
