Until I see my imaginary wife, Kitty Pryde, go on a date with Juggacolossunix. I have been waiting for WatX 14 for months now. Finally I see the light at the end of the tunnel

It was a good run. Like I said, besides Bendis, it is about time for some new X-books, with new characters and some new teams. I mean UXM was awesome with the Tabula Rasa line! I want more X adventures like this. Or like is Second Cominig with the Nimrods going HAM.

No.

hahaha haters gonna hate

Hahaha, we don't need randomly new characters popping out of nowhere when old characters are biting the dust. It's a waste of space.

I dont think I said what I meant. My intention was to say that I am sick of Wolvy, Cyclops, and Magneto teams. I am a huge fan of WatX because it is more like a Rachel, Bobby, and Kitty teams, along with the kids. I just want the benchwarmer characters brought back and give them some lime-light. Also, if there is any space for new characters it would be at the school. Like in the New Mutants vol. 2/New X-Men: academy X.

Initially I was thinking that this would be a good move, I even thought that it may be a move that is trying to gain the x-men back from fox... I know it is silly of me to think that.

Now I just worry, the x-men are going to fade into the background as usual. I mean hell, where is Cyclops gonna go haha. Then you have the likes of storm, kitty, hope, Emma, magneto and Namor. These characters have been able to hold comics on their own but now they will be shuffled in and out of teams when they are "needed". We saw how well storm did in the avengers, even when she was meant to be a new main character haha, she spent half of the issue knocked out.

This stinks of "the avengers movie did so well, how can we get all the x-men readers over to the avengers... I know, lets get rid of the x-men".

I'm worried I tells ya

I do not see them getting rid of the X-Men at all. They are contiuing the Uncanny X-Men, just under a different title " All New X-Men". They are keeping New Mutants, Legacy, WatX, and Factor. If anything, all this is doing is pushing mutants in more books, which is just plain rediculous. You think the mutants, being on the verge of extiction, would mean less face time, NOPE! hahaha. And Avengers, do they really need more members? Christ, who isn't an Avengers?

I think this might be a step in the direction where Marvel may finally acknowledge that the X-Men are really not that different from the other superheroes, and might as well start mixing with the greater Marvel Universe more. We'll see, but considering the scale of the greatest threats faced by the Avengers compared to the X-Men's depopulated rogues gallery and it starts to be ridiculous to have so many powerful mutants fighting the equivalent of racists and not being on hand to fight universe level threats more often.

I understand, but at the same time the Avengers have never had to deal with their species going extinct. Takes a toll. I mean they finally have an academy for the kids, which is an amazingly underrated book, but the X-Men have had to deal with innocent kids for the past 40 years

The Avengers did have to deal with that though; they went into space to fight the Kree/Skrull War, and other intergalactic battles such as the Kree/Shi'ar War, fought Thanos, Kang the Conqueror and Ultron, and are generally known to be the front line of superheroes to defend the Earth. The Avengers, quite frankly, have defended the human species as a whole including mutants, whereas the X-Men limit themselves to a defending a small portion of the species. I'm more of an X-Men fan, but I have to concede that the Avengers and Fantastic Four have dealt with the possible extermination of the human species more times than the X-Men have. The X-Men's scope is smaller, and because of this, they appear hypocritical even though their concerns in the face of genocide are understandable. Compare how they are acting to the Inhumans situation - the Inhumans have been living as a small minority in a hostile ecological environment for years, and they've rarely engaged in such intense battles with other superhumans.

Very well put. Maybe I was a bit close minded towards the Avengers. I completely forgot about Kree/Shia'ar wars. I will submit that the Avengers are more altruistic than the X-Men. Almost every mission, with the few obvious exceptions, has been very self-serving for the mutant population only. Now, it just so happens that the X-Men, generally, are the only ones who does, and will, protect the mutants. Plus, in a way, the X-Men were never meant to save the world. They simply are trying to make peace between themselves and humanity; while at the same time, they protect mutants, and protect humanity from mutants.

I wonder what books are going to follow-up on these stories. I am okay with the MU finally revamping their books, but they are giving up so many good ones.

So I have been waiting for this to pop up since Thursday.... Cyttorak still has possession over Colossus. So he is a Juggacolossunix. Just saying that this is simply delightful. I want to see this expanded on, anyone else?
