Namor was one of the worst additions to the X-Men if not the worst. Didn't serve much other than to provide yet another cliche love-triangle with Frost and Scott (though that Nation X issue where Storm scolded him was nice). He's gone now and nobody seems to care all that much. Time to move on.

How many issues is she into Uncanny ? How relevant has she been to the title as opposed to snark-star TA with hill-billy 'tude ? Has Bendis implied of any particular major plans concerning Emma past the latest issue ? Does he even care about her ? Does he even know her ?
Lol think about it. The only way Emma can get a decent shot and character importance is by escaping Bendis' clutches. Had she been under Wood or anyone else, at this point, there may have been hope, but so far it's embarrassingly regressed clingy ex-girlfriend with iterated Bendis-speak for the rest of her days. Doesn't look like she's gonna have many fine years if Bendis has his way.
Soz Emma fans.
@hawk2916: Well, yeah. Joining either Cyclops' or Wolverine's factions would seem like a major, pathetic, low-blow to either side. It'd make her seem as if her time in the WHR brought nothing knowledgeable if not an alleviated status, mind, body and soul. And what's more, she has no valid reason to join them. It's conducive to an even bigger pissing contest and nothing more.
Joining her best friend and other gal pals would at least allow her to gain some reliable context from trusted and possible unbiased sources from different perspectives in a stress-free way.
But then why does she even need to be on a team ? Why not be the General Overseer?
Good riddance to bad rubbish. Hopefully the relaunch has virtually nothing to do with Aaron and his detrimental 'contributions' to the X-Verse. This title was one of the worst.
Like, what's there to miss ?
Some of the bigoted progenitors need to step down and remove focus from the cause and divert that focus on their own lives. There's hardly been any meaningful introspection within the X-Books lately and it's a bit baffling considering all that's gone on. Like, some soul-searching. Going back to the roots and touching upon the beginning. I believe that's what's needed from Cyclops, Wolverine and co. while the next gen. finally begin to take responsibility for themselves like they should have done so a long time ago.
Current stories are pretty much indicative of the steady decline coming in on creativity for what to do with Scott and Logan. It's seriously telling.
@adamtrmm: And you've nothing much to solidify your point. Everything Cyclops has shown thus far on panel pretty much negates it. It's a pointless vanity project with cloudy motivation and premise. Wolverine and Cyclops, at the core of things, are basically mimicking eachother. The JGS included, if not more so.
Mhm. Mhm. Mhm. Wholeheartedly agree with your sentiments, but most definitely wish things would be going in a more imaginative direction as a whole for the X-Franchise, though having just read Spurrier's interview in regards to his upcoming X-Force series (not sure if you're aware of that) the hope of creativity still stands strong within my heart.
Looking to touch and breach the boundaries of mutantkind's boundaries and conspirate controversies. We'll see, anyways.
If the populous shows an evident accretion akin to levels of Morrison's run then i'm more than sure that the JGS would accommodate for such a boom in the mutant amount, but as of now, new mutants are only just about popping up every so often. They're increasing, but slowly. And it's a school where the next gen. of mutantkind learn to cope and process the exploits of every day 'human' life. And teachers teach those students, so no, they're not sitting on any of their arses.
And who said humans are going to accept them in their "human life"? As I've stated so many times, I don't understand how logical can this hatred be, but that's what "panel" shows us pretty much. So, basically, they're teaching them something this new generation may won't be able to utilize. Are they working on mutant image? Are they making mutant term less fearful? What are their achievements? While Cyclops at least was shown saving new mutants from incompetent forces tried to imprison them, just because of what they are. I actually consider it a bad writing, because governments would already know how to treat this situation (no matter justly or not), those policemen were clearly operating on their regular scale without real knowledge, what to do and READY to pull the trigger. You don't read Uncanny I guess.
precautionary measure of somebody, who doesn't want his operation base to be revealed. Phones are being tracked and everybody knows that, the very pretense of which in their place endangers their secret, not a bad writing btw.
I referred to very welcomes in the answer above.
Bull, Cyclops was an almost reality star past years, it didn't help him much :) But now, that the Avengers are with them everybody will start to like mutants, bc Captain America said so! Dam...
Be the change you'd want to be. I'd hope that sometime in the future the next generation of X-Men get off of their own arses and see to it that the human--mutant gap starts to get bridged, cause it can happen but i don't think this is a fight for the veteran X-Men anymore. BOTA is a perfect example of just how blind they've become and how far off the rails they've strayed. I've read three issues of Uncanny and a couple of All New's initial issues and saw enough--Bendis was writing it so it is bad writing.
Lol. Yeah, he's being so discreet about his operations that he never misses the opportunity to make some grandiose entrance at the JGS, bobbing his head in front of Wolverine and co. in order to take a petty dig. Nor does he refrain from the tried and trudged boring, public speeches of mutant oppression and the like. He's way in over his head, again. But this time he's not getting anywhere with it.
I think he was referring to the welcome that humanity would give them. That being said if we look at how sticking to Xaviers rote teachings has helped the mutant cause then i think we'd all agree that it hasn't affected much at all.
Cyclops is trying a different method, one that i think combines the lessons of charles and magneto. His goal is to help humanity as best as he can while at the same time promising retaliation on those whose goal is to hurt mutants; and the people that join him are are being trained to fight back hard when the inevitable happens (i.e. when someone tries to exterminate mutant kind again).
Wolverine and friends are sticking to the same methods that have been the defining characteristic of the x-men since their inception. How many times has the institute been attacked and destroyed though, how many kids have to die before they realize that being a public gathering place for mutants essentially paints a giant X on their house for their enemies to find?
Havoc and co. while they haven't actively tried to help mutants are doing something that the x-men could never really achieve, by combining forces with the avengers they're putting mutants in the spotlight and showing the public that they can be heroes too. On a side note that pr speech he pulled was kind of lame.
It probably hasn't helped a great deal since the HoM and the end of Morrison's run as the landscape was changed beyond comprehension and they had bigger things to deal with than subjugated doctrines, but while he was around and while he was acting on his own accord as a full-on representative of the mutant cause, the reaped benefits--more than had been imagined--in abundance. The Dream still possess credibility and influence, in one way or another, it's what they're all fighting for.
Cyclops and co. aren't doing anything different or worthwhile. They're essentially invoking the stereotypical world-view of mutants being nothing more than delinquent terrorists and are consciously taking on that mantle. Yeah, they're 'saving' new mutants and taking them to their secret base in wherever, but how, exactly, is this ideology any different than Wolverine's (or what the X-Men have been essentially doing for years?) ? I mean, ofc at this point both their stances during the Schism have been negated as they've both done things to contradict themselves, but still--Scott's just wasting his time. Mutants don't really need him if this is all he's got to offer. Some vanity project and a poor attempt at desperate attention-seeking.
Lol. Havok's team is nothing new. The world has been shown, time and again just how beneficial mutants are to society. Their mandate has of yet to be the drivng-force of any of their missions and at this point in time, it's the last thing on their minds. He's not doing anything new, either. In fact it's just a rehash of Storm's XSE.
