This as a 12 issue mini series by John Byrne & Roger Stern that showed gave us glimpses of the super-human community in the cold war era. The conceit was that it was published "backwards" with issue 12, and finished with issue #1, as a time traveling historian kept jumping backwards in time.
I thought it was neat back in the day, and every once in a while over the years, I'd pick up an issue of it when I found it cheap.
I finally read the last three that I was missing, #5, #3, and the "last" issue, #1.
I may have to go back and re-read the whole thing to get the full impact, but it just seemed like a REALLY lackluster ending.
Anyone out there want to confirm or deny?
I'm a fan, and really wished some of the characters would be seen again, but I do agree about the ending.
