i really hate how everybody hates on a book before it comes out and they have not even read it. if it doesn't sound like your cup of tea then don't buy it. but don't whine about it.
Dude.. I'm usually the one saying this statement to people after they start wining about this book or that one. However, this is a little different. They are basically attempting to change original story and the legacy of a franchise that some people on here have been following for years, others, even their whole lives. I have been an X-Men fan since I was 6 -- so the past 20 years now. This changes the original story and the timeline of the entire X-Men franchise to a pretty large degree. That's a hell of a hard pill to swallow for most people, myself included. Now, Professor X isn't the originator of the X-Men concept. Cyclops isn't the first X-Man. The first five we've always known, aren't actually the first five. The list could go on for days.
my problem with this is that nobody has even read the story yet. just because these characters get together doesn't mean that they are going to be the x-men. they may just group together and leave after the particular adventure is over. they may not even refer to themselves as the x-men. i do agree it could potentially change some things. but comics are being retconned or plain rebooted all the time. look at the new 52 from dc. seems to be very successful. i have read the x-men since i was nine. so i have read comics a bit longer than you. it doesn't really bother me at all. what if the story turns out to be great? i am not saying i think it will. but i certainly am not going to judge it. we don't know what is going to happen in this story. so far all we know is a few of the characters get together before the start of the x-men. if it bothers people so much then just don't read it. but don't hate on it and not even read a page of it. it is just plain silly to do so.
I think it's pretty clear they are trying to imply that the FIRST X-MEN were Wolverine, Sabretooth, Magneto, an angry woman with a big belt, and a dude wearing a hoodie. Sure comics are being rebooted, but that doesn't mean it's cool with everyone. DC did it because their sales were slipping, and the reboot allowed new fans to get in on the ground floor. That stuff is great for new fans; however, old fans or longtime fans can be easily disgruntled by things of this nature. I am personally annoyed by this series for many reasons, but here is one example... I didn't like Cyclops when I was growing up. In the last decade, writers have been changing his character as the mutant landscape too was changing. Cyclops has since become one of my absolute favorite characters in all of fiction. Blah blah I love Cyclops, but what I'm saying is that Cyclops was the first X-Man and now he has risen to his ultimate potential and not only become leader of the X-men, but practically the mutant race. Those bullet points of his character are important. Stories like this change things like that. Some people don't care. Others get angry. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry.
