->''"In my humble ''([--[[CoughSnarkCough koff]]--])'' opinion, Bob did as much to help destroy the comic book industry during [[TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks the 1990s]] than any other single human being alive... For years and years and years, the editorial philosophy at {{Marvel}} was to make each and every comic book [[TheChrisCarterEffect as labyrinthine and confusing as creatively possible]]. Marvel had the single highest-profile comic book in the Western hemisphere–''{{X-MEN}}''–and Bob did everything imaginable to make it completely incomprehensible and inaccessible to new and/or casual readers. Everything. 'But, Mark…' I hear the whine. 'But, Mark, Bob kept the X-books best-sellers in the industry during his tenure.' Technically true--but let’s look at the sales figures. Over the last six years, the sales margin between the X-books and their nearest competitors has dwindled from about three-to-one to barely 1.5-to-one. Woo-hoo. Cigars, everyone."''

->''"As much as I have complained about having to watch this show as an adult for three solid seasons now, when I was a kid, I loved it. I had a paperback reprint of the Claremont/Byrne story where the team gets trapped in Murderworld that’s one of my formative comics experiences, but the show hooked me and made me the kind of kid who begged his parents to go to the comic book store so that he could get the latest issues. I dove right in, and was thrilled by this new, complicated side of Marvel superheroics. Until, that is, we got to ''ComicBook/AgeOfApocalypse''. I went to the comic book store and heard that all the ''X-Men'' comics had been replaced with alternate universe counterparts and that this was going to continue for ''four months'', and decided to just read ''ComicBook/Gen13'' instead."''

->''"I’m not going to bitch about dense continuity. I love references to past stories. The problem here is that there’s not any actual references. I mean, just look at the scene where Omega’s backstory is explained so that viewers know who he is and why they care.\\\
Oh right. There isn’t one. There’s one line from Chancellor Hedin about him, and that’s it. It’s difficult to stress just how idiotic this is. This is a character who [[HijackedByGanon has appeared once before in the series, a full decade prior to this story]]...The show spends more time doing {{exposition dump}}s to help people that might have missed the Monday episode get up to speed with the Tuesday episode than it does catching up viewers who might have missed the episode [[SkewedPriorities that aired over a year ago on a different channel]]... Omega was an unthinkable menace that negated the very fabric of ''Doctor Who''.
