The final issue of this volume. So what did everyone think of this series?
- Spoiler: show
I am not entirely sure any of this made sense, from Nate's theory and solution to Khan now being in a new timeline but remembering the old one, but I would have to understand how "temporal particles" and the multiverse in general works to be confident in that so I guess I will just accept it at face-value.
Looking back I would say there were some fun moments in this run (and in this issue with Wolvie's hilarious terrible fate!) You can tell Ahmed enjoyed stretching his creative muscles. Overall it wasn't really the Exiles squad I was looking for. He left it open for them to reappear again but if they do I would like to see some change in the line-up. Interestingly Rodriguez includes a sketch at the end that shows Valkyrie was originally conceived as Storm and Thor's child, a choice that I think actually would have been better than the version they went with.
Rodriguez by the way does some great layouts in this issue and he is an underrated talent at that (he also did fantastic things in the Sorcerers Supreme series).

Late to this as I've just read it on unlimited. I would say this book never clicked with me, there was lot of character concepts I liked but just somehow didn't mesh together well, I found the pacing a bit too frantic. Maybe a re-read down the line would be better.
I will say this last issue has gorgeous artwork/ layouts each of the team trapped in the personal prison world was so well done.
