@spiderbat87: If it leads to the return of a large mutant population, I'd have to call AvX a net-positive event. The resonance of mutant-kind as an analogy for repressed segments of society really takes a hit when you shrink the numbers so much.
I would also disagree that it's a "complete disservice", because there are definitely people who enjoy a whole lot of punchy-punchy with little else. I'm not one of them, but have fellow fans who are. THEY'RE being served. I just don't buy it. :)
