@ageofhurricane: oh age, I have been waiting to hear your input on the direction of the X-Men
*hypertextual hug* It is good to see you too, my friend. My brother in arm. My thoughts and feelings towards the current predicament we've found ourselves have of yet to be dissuaded. We're going down and we're going fast. I'm precariously hanging onto Claremont's Nightcrawler, Spurrier's X-Force and Pak's Storm (although with how things have been moving, i may drop it entirely by issue 6 if not earlier) and, um, yeah. It's a sad state of events and i'm ready to jump ship and not look back. I'm not gonna beat a dead horse, though, but this is an irrevocable trajectory of prospectively bad fruition. I see no hope. No light. Only darkness. And Bendis hovering over me, saddled with a bag of doughnuts, smiling...o.O
Of course, the journey thus far has been hilarious and I for one am heavily intrigued as to where we'll be come next year.
