@adamtrmm:

It's just...he is such a nice guy, but he needs go. Course, that's not happening for another 5 or 10 years but i a guy can dream...

I would, of course, slow down on the "smartasses like us" note, though. It's a bit condescending and what not. I think it's just that, within life in general, the majority generally gravitates to whatever's being arduously shoved in their faces with no end in sight, despite the absence of veritable precedence and perceptibly quantifiable aesthetics, they'll just go. Doesn't make us smarter, just means we like what we like...a whole bloody lot and aren't as...susceptible? Not to get all philosophical, but unfortunately, in this world, some people live their entire lives sleeping under false pretenses.

It's your choice. Read a couple more issues into it and if you feel like you're headed somewhere with the title, then go for it, but then if you feel like you're wasting both your time and your money then hop off the cray-train and find something you do like.

Emma. I think i've had enough fugging Cyclops glorification for one decade as it is. This woman has given so much for him with nothing on her end to show for it. This is Emma all over. Emma when she's finally fed up with Scott's banal s*%@ and says goodbye to both him and Bendis.

@oldnightcrawler:

But instead of being sidetracked in endless debate for no other reason than arguing just for the hell of it, I thought the Academy X new Xmen was one of the better series period and definitely highly ranked as far as the student books go. I know it had a long run but there seemed to be plenty more stories that could have been told and it felt like it ended too soon, at least for me. I really wish we could get it back.

Seriously.

I honestly hope that one day we do. And it should be a title that incorporates the prominent characters of all next-gen-esque X-Men characters, as in those from the New Mutants, the X-Terminators, Gen X and etc.

Is it really surprising?

Right?

Bendis has made his irrevocable stamp in the X-Office and he's fervently dragging everyone down with him. This is the guy who sets the line-wide mandate and as it stands he has of yet to provide a stable consensus for both sides of the unnecessary Schism debacle, of which, he is still needlessly advocating within his average-at-best stories.

But then, when X-Titles were ranking within the TTs or w.e, didn't we have things like ANXM? Or Uncanny? Or Deadpool and stuff like that? Are those the laudable titles the genuine bread and butter of today's X-Men?

X-Force and All New X-Factor are innovative, character-driven and headed with direction. That's including the solo titles as well. The other X-Titles are not and it is clearly showing.

What a mess.

@adamtrmm: Could you point out some specific examples of these "many" instances please?

Hopeless did a lot of good with the Domino relationship, though.

Whedon's his worst writer by virtue of resurrection for an ineffectual role within the grand scheme of eventful things. Bringing him back for no particular reason other than to flounder fans some more with incessant KP nostalgia, and since then he's been bobbed from one writer to the next just so it's not as if he's being relegated to background detritus and seemingly doing something.

Lobdell's iteration was okay...but at best he was still just a watered down version of Claremont's construction. And imho, his arc was done post-Siege Perilous. That was interesting. In fact, i don't think Colossus the character has ever been more interesting than when he was the X-Men-amnesiac and happily indulging in his passion while having a saucy dalliance with Callisto. People seem to forget that the guy never really saw being an X-Man as a long-term thing anyways, he always had his trepidations and stipulations but only pulled through on the seeming condition that there'd be a positive impact (Lobdell got that, at least).

I don't believe it was Claremont's decision to bring him back as the antagonistic scapegoat during the Muir Island Saga, but what happened, happened. Thankfully Lobdell killed him off and then Whedon (after Morrison was declined, but i kind of like to think he would have either done something new, or tremendously horrible from a fan's perspective) decided to bring back. And he hasn't been doing much ever since.

The colossonaught period was ripe with story potential, but Gillen failed flat on his arse with that one. And what's he doing now? Aimlessly traipsing the globe within what's equally an aimless title.

Whedon's Emma was aight.
