Only four pages in and this may be one of the best issues I have ever read, of any series, ever. Its brilliant Mr. Byrne. Even if you didn't know what was going on in Elsewhen, you instantly realize the basics, there is an urgent pace, the action is so well depicted. The backgrounds to asteroid M and the control room are fantastic.
Its just...great!

Love that last panel in particular today.

Also, thanks JB for introducing me to the word 'roil'.

If this had a cover, we all know what it would say, right?  

Because “face it, true believers — this one has it all!”

Today’s page is a masterpiece, JB.

Alt-Kurt's bravery shines in the spotlight -- and in the shadows, perhaps there's the first hint of alt-Scott growing a spine!

These pages remind me of the inexorable onslaught of the id monster from Forbidden Planet. No matter haw many barriers were placed in its path, the creature could not be stopped!

Jason K. Fulton: "... they end up running away at the first sign of repercussions."

I'm sure the police and FBI have been out to get Magneto and the M-Men for a while. But I doubt that an enraged Thunder God is quite the "first sign." Hell, I'd run away from Thor in that state, and I never did nothin' wrong!

I take this incredible page as one of my
birthday presents. Thanks for it JB, the
sense of urgency springs from these panels
as...death from a vengeful god knocks on
the door ! And Alt-Kurt has hero last
words.

Eric - I'm not sure the FBI and the police count as adequate deterrents when you're actively murdering super heroes and/or live on an asteroid. This strikes me as the first time these guys have received actual push-back.

2 quick things:

1. LOVED that "BKOOOM" sound effect!  and the curving of it reinforced the sound somehow!

2. When Thor entered the mix, my mind went to him using his little-referenced "dimension-warping" powers to banish the group.  The Kurt angle is more diabolical for sure.

Jason,

Add to the fact that their attack on the Avengers Mansion was more of a "bombing" than a physical confrontation.  So far, these guys seem to be bullies.

My job here is done!

(Actually, the job begun by Stan and Jack in Magneto's earliest appearances.)

Nightcrawler even looks cool when he is bathed in light. He's somehow
creepier without the shadows!

The silhouettes of the figures in the bottom panel are SO dynamic!

You sir are an artistic genius.
