CBR Review: Age of X Universe #2

I recently reviewed Age of X Universe #2 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "The reveal in X-Men Legacy #247 of the truth behind the 'Age of X' universe made this two-issue mini-series seem more superfluous and unnecessary than these add-on comics usually are. With the entire world merely a mental construct taking place in the minds of those who were on Utopia when a part of Legion’s psyche lashed out against Professor X and Dr. Nemesis, a series focusing on characters that weren’t on Utopia loses its appeal pretty quickly. It doesn’t help that this issue contains an odd change of heart for this alternate group of Avengers that doesn’t seem logical and also undermines the intelligence of the mutants we’re supposed to be rooting for."
