What the heck is wrong with marvel man...U talk about bringing up mutantkind and then destroying it (for good/ temporarily). Come on now. Can we get a few storylines that are talking about what every character is truly going through? Or how about like More background and growth for the five lights or better yet characters like loa, trance, anole, rockslide, surge, u kno? Can we at least get a good 1 or 2 years before we go back to "The End of Mutantkind" all over again. Gosh...the frustration we all get now. Two words marvel...CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT.

I do partially agree, though.  It still feels like second coming just came to end.

It said the end as we know them. It could easily mean that the way mutants are viewed will be completely different. with hope activating every mutant, this could mean that every mutant will have to have a conection to the x-men. The mutant race will forever be differnet because of Hope. This doesn't have to mean that they are gonna kill them off.

About every five years Marvel has a new "It's the end of Mutant Kind" storyline. I highly doubt it'll pull through this time.

True. I just feel that's all they've been doing because they have all these characters in the background but aren't using them so they want to / have to kill some off.

LAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAME. 
 
I miss the days when the X-Men were a refuge and inspiration for mutants, not a freaking miltant group.

Interesting :] and the Scarlet Witch is gonna return by then.

If this ends up becoming another storyline where mutants end up "feared" and "loathed", I'm giving up X-comics entirely.

Maybe this will be another House of M where Hope takes over the world and turns everybody into a mutant

So that could be even more evidence. This will change everything and currently the x-men are a near military group that has to fight daily for their lives on a huge scale. This could mean a return to normal.

I would like mutants to really be that, not a new species or the next evolution of humans. If it really was random. If one in every thousand births were a mutant regardless of parentage. Humans having mutant children, mutants having human children just random.

#14 Posted by xmenboi11z (76 posts) - - Show Bio

You guys have very interesting views. I do agree that the x-men are basically mutant soldiers now instead of teachers and caring about everyone else and just wanting to help. Scott is really changing and I think it's because jean's not there and we all know that jean was the woman that scott was ever truly happy with or just happy in general. Emma has gotten to him but no diss on the couple though. 
  Hopefully the X-gene will come back as it used to with puberty and all but we all know that wont happen. It's crazy how things can change like that. I can't say i like hope but I can't say I hate her. I have mixed feelings about her and it's probably because of the way she's written and used. Just let us get jean back so Emma can go sleep with Namor cuz we all know they have a thing for each other. And tell Wanda to say "Bring back the mutants." And everything will be just peachy lol.

Any announce about X-Men never excites me, I can only think of how they would ruin my favorite characters this time. But nonetheless, there's always the chance I can be surprised like I was with Second Coming.

#16 Posted by Jubilantlad (318 posts) - - Show Bio

Wow, they are having major events every year aren't they : S 
 
My wallet is crying here.
#17 Posted by Skaddix (3106 posts) - - Show Bio

Age of x will probably be similar to age of apocolsypse or house of m.  maybe Hope will actually go on  killing spree.

#18 Posted by AMS (1352 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm sick of the X Men constantly getting a raw deal from Marvel time and time again ffs.  
 
They where the biggest Marvel franchise at one point, keeping everyone in jobs while Marvel nearly bankrupted it's self but oh noooooooo Marvel decides to crash the whole thing just because they can. Just when they where finally getting somewhere again, more trash is being made to knock them back down into the pits of ridicule. 
 
All in all no i'm not buying this peice of lame trash that will be retconned six months later.

I'm so tired of the whole 'fighting for the survival of their species'.  There are SO many more stories they could tell... But if this is the only thing they can think of, then just let the X-Gene die... it's better to kill 'em off instead of re-hashing this rubbish.

#20 Posted by Thunderscream (1807 posts) - - Show Bio

I swear to Tom Cruise they better not pull the same poopy na-na as in the AoA 10yr reunion where *SHOCKINGLY* everything revolved around the fudging Phoenix. I'm seriously confused that the rest of Marvel is experiencing the "Heroic Age" whilst mutants are getting bloodsucked....and then THIS!

#21 Posted by krisis (151 posts) - - Show Bio

I think it's ironic that Marvel is so hooked on events for the X-teams since Messiah Complex, since I understood that they had a very effective few years just prior to that that were relatively event-free. We're just about back to 90s concentration of crossovers at this point.

As long as they don't kill off Fantomex I'll be fine.

@N7_Normandy: What month in 2011 will this trade debut?
#25 Posted by eldestrisk (616 posts) - - Show Bio

They should focus on something more interesting. Like I don't know, bringing back Forge and Adversary. 
 
A true reform of the Hellfire Club with Sebastian Shaw.
 
Colossus supposedly killing a whole planet again. 
 
More focus and all of the young mutants instead of creating new lame ones.

Anything!!!!!!!!!! Please Marvel I'm about to give up on you. 
 
But even so, Second Coming was great and that was enough for keeping me around at least one year more. =P

@eldestrisk: So is Age of X supposed to be a 616 version of Age of Apocalypse?
#27 Posted by Skaddix (3106 posts) - - Show Bio

No probably the same thing or a major new direction for the x-verse.

I really don't know, but for some reason it sounds lame. Here's hoping it's not. =S

I'm not going to jump to any conclusions about what could happen with this "Age of X". It could potentially be a very entertaining and exciting story arc.

Is it just me, or does anyone find it incredibly weird to see Spider-Man in those pictures?

#31 Posted by Edamame (28397 posts) - - Show Bio

I think this will debut in March.

#32 Posted by crimsonspider89 (817 posts) - - Show Bio

Thinking along the line of something happening and the X-Men have to take over as the Avengers in an alt universe. Just wonder how they are going to perform it. 

#33 Posted by Bestostero (5590 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm not sure if I understand this correctly...but are they destroying off mutant kind...again?  My understanding was Second Coming was suppose to bring back mutants and now we're eliminating them again lol
 
I don't think I get it, but I'm excited if it will have an Age of Apocalypse feel, although AoA was never my favorite, it was pretty good... I was really looking forward to AoA in Wolverine and the X-Men until they canned it SIGH

#34 Edited by Chesapeake (2210 posts) - - Show Bio

I hope Chris Bachalo gets involve with more than just the stroryline. I do not care who the X-men are fighting for supremacy as long as Chris Bachalo is the penciler. His previous sting with the X-men was awesome.  I enjoyed the art of Blinded by the Light, First Foursaken and Supernovas.
 
I know many people do not like his art but for me, his art is the best. My favorite characters were Lady Mastermind, Iceman, Rogue and Rachel Summers.

LOL I find it hilarious how there was so much buildup to it, and then, all of a sudden it collapsed and was canceled. LMAO

Well who is in it? 
Starting clockwise from  middle:
My Guesses:
Rogue
Cyclops
Wolverinee
Magneto
Jean grey
Beast
Storm
Gambit
(middle: Ice Man?)
 
I think I nailed it.

where'd u get this? they all seem to be cutouts from various artists/books (especially the top right female, Storm from a Black Panther cover)
I see (clockwise from middle) Hope, Cyclops, Wolverine, Magneto, Dr. Nemesis (middle guy is wearing slacks), Beast, Storm, Emma Frost, Gambit
#39 Edited by Metatron_Da_Don (1029 posts) - - Show Bio

it was in google news, somewhere. 
 Someone said Rogue was a cutout as well. That's why middle guy reminds me of a pose from New X-Men when Bobby had glasses
 EDIT: Nate Grey?
except he had his hand raised to his face and it was freezing and radiating cold...
 Dr. Nemesis would be interesting addition to main cast though... I like X-Club though have yet to read the X-Club comics though only synopses.

They announced that  

will be involved, I was also hoping for a major event free couple of arcs over the next while, as long as they can keep them on the same level as Second Coming.  One major event that still urks me was the whole Dark Avengers/X-Men and Utopia run.  Sooo many good battles were off panel.

@Nefilim927: you forgot to Edit/click on the Spoiler, Gambit was obvious from the image but I skipped over him and only guessed 8 people.
my guesses: 
Rogue
Cyclops
Wolverine
Magneto
Jean grey
Beast
Storm
Gambit
(middle: Ice Man
 
A'so, I wonder what will happen to the Chaos War X-Men
#42 Posted by Nefilim927 (345 posts) - - Show Bio
@Metatron_Da_Don: From the other shadow teaser, Wolverine, Beast and Magneto seem pretty obvious
Really not sure what I'm lookin at here.  I can't really tell much from this one other than someone looks like they are holding a pistol in one hand, next to Hellion and I am almost certain that the large wings do not belong to Warren. 
Thoughts anyone?

I'm pretty sure it's not supposed to be like Age of Apocalypse, as far as I know.  All that's for certain is that it will be similar in size and scope to Age of Apocalypse.  However, they have made no indication that it will resemble that storyline in content

"
hmmmm, Gambit's holding a rifle? and, for a guy with no arms, Hellion sure has pumped up those pecs ;) The lightning at the top should be a dead giveaway for Storm....although it could be Surge or Polaris. Cannonball's right below her with a gun-toter below him, Fantomex or Deadpool maybe. The winged figure definitely looks feminine...maybe Dragoness or Gargouille (both still powered last I checked). Both figures smack-dab in the middle have me a bit perplexed. The left looks pretty androgynous, Domino possibly? I'll say the right is Northstar even though there really aren't any distinguishing characteristics. The crouching female in the front could be Hope, Rogue, Kitty......not sure. 
 
So, is this supposed to be an alternate reality again? If they're setting up the way they did AoA, this must could be a 2nd lineup separate from the other, all yellow teaser.
#48 Posted by crimsonspider89 (817 posts) - - Show Bio

Well, if you read the X-position with Carey, he said more focused on Legacy and NM. So expect a couple young mutants,Gambit, Rogue, Magneto and members of the NM to be part of the arc with the big ones playing a role(Xavier, Storm, Logan, Emma,  Cyke) appearing cause those define the X-Men for several people.

@xxCellPhoneGirlxx:
I seriously hope that the Scarlet Witch does not show up in any form in the Age of X storyline- (unless of course Age of X is set in an alternate reality). Because if she shows up it will completely invalidate the 9 part Avengers: Children's Crusade which is coming out every other month.
#50 Posted by Thunderscream (1807 posts) - - Show Bio

What other winged female mutants are there? Pixie, but hers aren't even close to that shape, although they like to make additions to the silhouettes to throw us off. Maybe Mystique shapeshifts some wings?
