When I first read FoF #12 i thought that was a hilarious joke lampooning the comic book cliff-hanger that any reader knew was obvious BS.
Long-time readers may have found the Millennium gag in the most recent Firestorm #17 amusing, but new fans would just be going 'huh'? It's a nice jab from the creators at the Villains United cross-overs. Of course, the cynic in me is saying the joke is memo-authorized rebellion-as-marketing ploy and is as editorial-driven as the entire VU story.
Still, better than the House of M tie-ins.
