Well, AvX did spawn from it. And AvX Consequences could be considered the real end of the run...so it could be argued that current Uncanny X-Men and All New spawned from this....but directly from this run idk since Sinister has gone "poof"

I have no doubts that the direction the book took after AvX was more of a decision of editorial and the Marvel higher ups. Gillen was just there. Anyone could have done it.

Remender for me.

Before I started reading this, I didn't really give a crap about characters like Deadpool, Fantomex and Psylocke, but after reading this book it was good to see they all had a place and were written very well. The relationship between Psylocke and Archangel felt real, and was quite emotional, Deadpool wasn't overdone, I was even starting to like Fantomex somewhat. Those are the call signs of a good writer if he has the ability to make characters you don't like, likeable.

The story lines are also pretty well crafted. Good use of the AoA, and while I personally think the the "Dark Angel Saga" is kind of drawn out, It's still a good story. I tend to think Apocalypse can be kind of a useless villain despite what fans will tell you, but I think his disciples are used pretty well in the arc. Overall, the run is full of action and great character stuff all the while they travel through dimensions and fight super villains...not a whole lot more you can ask from a super hero comic.

I don't think anything substantial came from Gillens run.

First world problems.

They had Saturday Morning cartoons in Somolia. Though, they didn't always come on on Saturday morning.

@tobiasbyrgesenandersen: Start at Giant Sized X-Men and continue through the 70s and 80s. The 90s is only held in such a high standard because of the popularity of the cartoon. The storytelling in the comics is kind of dull at that point in time. Nothing that comes after that point in time is really all that great either. The X-Men are kind of good examples of a franchise that has been coasting off their success from a certain period of time.

The X-Men rose to insane levels of success for a reason in the late 70s through the 1980s. Start there

But I was gonna make a speech about Geists like Zola's about Hydra in TWS. Am disappoint.

You can still do that. Just make sure you listen to that band on one of those snazzy walkmans while you type it.

LOL. Just kidding. I don't really give a f*ck what happened to them.

Now, here is an add for Walkmans from the 1980s and an awesome song from Matson Jones, my friends band. Enjoy!
