Cournell's about to do another sh*tty Wolverine arc that no one would care about.

The characterization for one. His characterization of the main cast wasn't a continuation of prior developments for some (Cyclops) and was constantly changing for others (Wolverine). I'd even argue that Emma Frost, Cyclops and Wolverine were thrown into roles for sake of conflict without proper evolution even when just looking at his run.
Besides that, the stories are written very strong but do very little for the X-Men themselves; an honestly going back to reread it it feels like he was trying to retire the X-Men after making Jean the only likable non-student character and killing her off. The last few arcs, Planet X especially, feel as though he was ending the franchise and not because of the dire-ness of the situation. I give Morrison all the credit in the world for his contributions to the world of the X-Men, but I'm glad his run ended when it did because i don't think the franchise could've survived any additional changes or character interpretation from him.
The way Morrison characterized the characters he was writing was unique.Every single one of them was likeable for me and it was good to see that there are some misunderstandings in the team.And I have to highly disagree that Jean was the only likeable character since he was really trrying to write her appropriately and he was doing so because I almost liked her but in the end I was really happy when she died and the way she died.
Planet X was the conclusion of his run,the way he saw things should end in his opinion and he did a wonderful job since that is my favorite X-Men story for all time.I mean there everything in the story and I liked every single part of it.It may have been odd for some people to read because it looked like everything would've ended for the franchise and it would have actually been better then continuing the franchise and making it so terrible.Also he wrote that way Planet X because Morrison likes to ends things when he writes and he does it in his own way.
I can't see how in the name of god there are still people who say that Morrison's run on New X-Men was crap or that nothing good came from it.I can see that there are people who simply don't like the way Grant tells his stories but his X-Men run is nothing similiar to his other work and his last 3 arcs he did on the book are the best X-Men stories ever told in history.Planet X is the best mutant,X-Men arc ever in the history of comic books and the things that happend build a lot of characters up for their futures and what would come next.
But to actuall contribute to the thread:Brubaker/Fraction's run was one of the most horrible things that I've read from the X-Men universe as well as Kieron Gillen's run on Uncanny X-Men vol.1.

I expected this to happen.It was pretty easy to guess that it would be cancelled after we saw way better shows (Young Justice and Green Lantern TAS) getting cancelled.
