I just heard that Jason Aaron is leaving Amazing X-Men and Kyle and Yost are taking over. It looks like Colossus is joining series.

That is good new Colossus, Kurt, Wolverine and maybe Iceman in one team, should be amazing. With those writers it will be.

Very, very, veryyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy excited about this. Kyle and Yost have done some of my favorite comics. Wondering if McGuinness is going to stay on art.

I want to scream like a teenage fanboy right now, that's how I feel lol And that's while replacing Aaron?! Send back 05 and let Bendis be replaced with Gillen in Uncanny and I got everything. Well, almost.

Chris Yost writes an Amazing Storm! I cannot wait! Still don't want Storm and Nightcrawler together as couple. Nope. Nope. Nope. I will not be pleased if that happens.

I wasn't bothered by Aaron being on this book, but Kyle and Yost....maybe put some edge back into the X-Men.

Hrm. The article seems to mention that the entire team could be remade. Although I'm glad that Colossus was at the top of their list. Big guys needs to be in a large X-title. Plus Kyle & Yost gives me hope that Domilossus survives after X-force ended.

PLease let this happen!!!! I want Aaron gone for good and if we get K&Y, that would be awesome.

#15 Posted by HAWK2916 (1597 posts) - - Show Bio

Looks like Aarons last issue is April with Immonen doing May then K&Y from then on. Plus Colossus. Man my day has been great... just watched Survivor and the person I wanted gone got the boot,NFL free agency starts tomorrow and it will be awesome this year, the final book in a trilogy Ive been into becomes available at midnight and now this news....honestly Im on cloud nine lol

Love Kyle and Yost's previous work in the X-Universe so I am excited to see them start on the book

#17 Posted by adamTRMM (1339 posts) - - Show Bio

My favorite butchers are back, but they will write a pretty classic "morals on" team, so I think they'll task themselves with a challenge of NOT killing anyone, 'cause the first thing we will expect from them is a bus to most of Aaron's creations departure lol

#18 Edited by THUNDERBOLT30 (10071 posts) - - Show Bio

YYYAAASSS!!!

This is the BEST news I have heard in a long time in the X-books. I have not read Kyle's work before to my knowledge but most X-Fans seem to hold him in high regard. Yost is up there with Claremont for me when it comes to his writing of Storm and X-Men in general so...I'm excited to say the least :-).

#20 Edited by HAWK2916 (1597 posts) - - Show Bio

@adamtrmm: AAAAhhhhhhh!!!! lLOL. Now that would be a dream come true for real. Put all of Aaron's pets on a bus and blow it away or if not that drastic just let them get sucked into some time-warp portal that shoots them out into another universe or world out of sight.

#21 Posted by Mannequin (252 posts) - - Show Bio

This is great news. I happened to read Kyle & Yost's X-Force, and it was absolutely good. I didn't really have a problem with Aaron's writing, but I'm thrilled to see the dynamic duo back.

FINALLY some good news. Not that I don't like Aaron but, I believe he should take a break and let Kyle and Yost take over. I can imagine how many of you are celebrating lol.

#26 Posted by time (4913 posts) - - Show Bio

@mercy_: I love there work on X-Force , the Messiah Saga and on Witchblade. It's a ashamed that Mike Choi and Sonia Oback won't be joining them. Nevertheless it's still great news.

I'm glad there finally get rid of Jason Aaron, can't stand him as writer. If they return Jean Grey from the White Room and then send the 05 back then are be happy. Otherwise having teen Jean Grey is ok. No to Gillien, he was a boring writer. If they return Rogue I will be happy.

YYYAAASSS!!!

You haven't red X-Force yet, it's amazing series. Old Ghost was the best story arc, they were all pretty good. Here images from old ghost.

The only issue with it, is Mike Choi and Sonia Oback won't be working on Amazing X-Men. Nevertheless, series will be good. There great writers. If the team is Wolverine, Storm, Kurt, Colossus, Beast, Northstar and hopefully Iceman and Firestar, then it will be great.

@time: I'm so sad that Choi and Oback don't work together anymore :( Neither is quite the same without the other.

Tears of joy will pop up as I'll read "K/Y are announced to continue their trip with New X-Men in a new, upcoming book" (with Gillen already on Uncanny!).

@hawk2916:

That will be for the other great news :]

Pulling Jean Grey out of a greater plane of existence into ours would be pretty illogical, don't you find? Kyle said he prefers Emma lol Don't panic, Yost prefers Jean. As for Gillen, he was both great and terrible, his Magneto and PIS-battles were getting on my nerves, Tabula Rasa and Breakworld arcs were beyond unnecessary and boring, BUT, he was also behind some of the best ideas in a recent X-history, from ExtinTeam as a statement to the Consequences as the result, he proved to be one of the most capable X-writers in years. Most of his subplots like Colossus/Magik showdown, heralds of Phoenix, Sinister's evolution and its pre-story in the fourth and one of the best X-issues I've read in a while, even reminded me of Morrison's best issues #127 and #132 (when he actually tried to be a writer, not a smartass).

@cutter said:

You're right, he was worse. He was the worst thing to happen to X-franchise for that time and till now.

#32 Posted by Maddpanda531 (1020 posts) - - Show Bio

I really like Aaron as a writer. Sure, WatX took a definite dive in quality, but that was only because it was totally derailed by AvX. It started off really good and I'd bet that it could have continued to be good if it wasn't broken by a completely unnecessary 10 tie-in issues. But the series definitely got a bit better following AvX. As for his Amazing X-Men, I've been loving every issue. But I'm actually glad that Aaron's leaving. Not because I don't like his writing, but because I reeeaaally don't want him to tie it in to his upcoming Original Sin series. Anyway, I'm looking forward to reading this series far into the future, regardless of who's writing it, as long as they write it well and don't shoehorn in a bunch of tie-ins.

Aaron may belong somewhere just not on the x-books. He'd probably be perfect a kiddie book like underdog, mighty mouse, peter pan or incredibles. Maybe the mystical or alien stuff may fit but nothing serious like the x-books. To me, him being on the x-books just further proves at least in my mind, that the xmen are second class now and the Avengers get the best treatment. I mean I doubt very seriously the Marvel would lwt Aaron anywhere near the Avengers but for him to be one of the main writers on xmen and even be given the kead on an event is just beyond reason and again indicative of the current sentiment regarding the xmen in the Marvel world

I gotta say, I hope they handle the tone shift well. I mean Aaron is writing hell as a cheery pirate adventure and Kyle and Yost are the guys that nuked a schoolbus and had Wolfsbane eat her abusive minister father....not exactly the same tempo.

#38 Posted by HAWK2916 (1597 posts) - - Show Bio

@koays: I honestly hope there is a shift in tone. At least to a more serious one over the silliness we've gotten from Aaron. Sad to say.. i know this probably sounds bad but in all honesty I wouldnt mind if Kyle and Yost nuked that whole water park/bouncy castle they call the JGS school and took out some of Aaron's creations with it. Just go back to the mansion on Graymalkin.

Lol at the description.
But yea I think the X-Men have needed a little darkening up in the last couple of years, especially since WatX-men started setting the tone for what the JGS setting is like. Still i hope they ease into it, since there are two other X-books set at the school that are improving, and most of the 'Amazing' cast overlap into one or more of those books so the changes may carry over badly.
