If they do go back to the past but retain their memories, then the "All New X-Men" title could follow their adventures from back then. It would kind of be like the current Star Trek movies that diverge into a different timeline. We could see some of the "classic" stories all over again but with some minor or major changes. But of course, as in all time travel stories, how would this affect the current crop of mutants? And would knowing your potential future cause you to change things, change yourself? Would Jean put herself in the situation where she would become the Phoenix? Would the Phoenix latch onto her anyway in some other manner? Would Beast experiment on himself and become all blue and furry? Would Angel one day still become Archangel?

I remember when Valiant was sold to Acclaim back in the 90s and they "reimagined" the characters to parallel some video games they created. I actually bought several of the titles and enjoyed them immensely. Funny, back then Marvel was screwing around with things and saturating the market with a ton of titles, multiple covers, etc. What goes around comes around I guess. I'm always a little leery in investing in a new (or new again) line of comics because I worry in a couple of years they may go the way of so many other lines of past. If they come out in TPB, then I'll surely pick up some of them.
I'd rather see a series that included all the different colored corps (Rainbow Lanterns?) in their own individual story lines, 3-6 issues long. I don't read the Red Lantern Corps, I certainly won't pick up LarFleeze, and I won't pick up a Sinestro Corps title either. But if they had an ongoing that spotlighted each color now and then, that might work out better. Just a thought.
@captaingenisvell: What I was wondering is: When he didn't have his healing factor, he'd still pop his claws a lot. Wouldn't he have blood coming out between his knuckles? And maybe feeling a bit of pain as those big, metal knives would slice through skin and muscle?
No, they did not need to create yet another X-title for this. Instead it should be a story arc in one of the many, many books already out there - - even Uncanny Avengers if need be. A mini-series or an annual? Sure, that would be fine too. People's budgets are already stretched too thin. A new title is just unnecessary.
Personally, I enjoy futuristic stories along with alternate universe stories or imaginary "what if?" kinds of stories. And I think DC does them a LOT better than Marvel for the most part (Age of Ultron anybody?). As a LONG time comic book reader, I can easily get bored with the same old standard fare, so I don't get all bothered about what seemingly bothers a lot of fans. Look people, you don't like the idea, the concept? Fine, don't buy the book. My guess is that a lot of people will pick it up (at least initially) just to see what it is all about. Maybe the doubters will change their mind or maybe the comic will suck. Regardless, I'll give it a try myself.
@mynamewasdeleted: I would be OK with them doing a 'who shot JR' dream thing to make all the "badstuffs" go away
No, no - - JR getting shot wasn't a dream. Bobby dying was a dream and then it was all okay when Pam woke up and found him standing in the shower.
