I wish the avengers weren't so high and mighty and constantly bickering with the X-Men. It's like only Havok is trying to keep the peace. Everyone else is entirely divided along X-Men/Avengers lines.

I believe they were both intended to be drunk and doesn't Fantomax have magic trick illusion powers?

This isn't an event. It's a ten issue story to introduce Angela into the Marvel Universe and whatever other change is going to happen at the end of issue 10. It doesn't even feel like a Marvel event. None of the other books are even acknowledging it, just having meaningless AU issues in between release of the actual books. It's not necessarily a bad story (except where it ignores how time travel has always worked in the Marvel Universe), but the suspense just isn't there. I know none of these characters are actually in danger because their "real" books are just chugging along perfectly fine.

The problem is this does not feel like an important event. Sure, there are some tie-ins, but not really. This just seems like a long drawn out way to get to whatever "twist" happens at the end. The deaths don't mean anything, because they aren't really happening.

You nailed it right there. I feel the same way, this story is just for a twist ending and will change Hank Pym (Personally I think he will become Marvel Man). The deaths are for shock and shock alone and I think that stuff has run its coarse with many comic fans.

It's not like characters actually stay dead in standard Marvel events, anyway. Not that I'd ever defend this awful thing.

But even when a character doesn't stay dead, they still die for a little. We get stories that explore their loss and the impact it has on those around them. There is a "What if?" feel to this series. All the "real" ongoing books basically ignore it (probably because it was written years ago.) The Fantastic Four tie in tried to have an emotional punch that just didn't land because on the last page we're reminded that next issue continues the real story and this thing didn't really matter.

The characters in this book feel completely different from the characters in their solo books.
