When is Marvel going to give Gischler the heave ho from X-Men?

So far, his work on adjectiveless X-Men is, let's face it, far less than enthralling. It seems like he writes weak adventure scenarios and then throws in whatever X-Men and uses their powers in a rather deus ex machina-esque fashion. It doesn't matter what characters are being brought along on the adventure, because they just aren't important in his stories. No friendships are developed, no development is apparent, and nothing seems like it matters.

When you look at arcs such as Morrison's New X-Men, Whedon's Astonishing X-Men and Remender's Uncanny X-Force, all three revolve around the characters. Would Astonishing have been different if Kitty wasn't in the line up? Oh yes. What about Emma in New X-Men? Of course. What about Fantomex in X-Force? Indeed. The characters create the story, not the other way round. This is what is needed to make a successful story, in my opinion. Gischler's writing on X-Men though just seems like pulp, and not even the good pulp.

Why have Domino, Warpath and Jubilee decided to side with Cyclops? Never mind that, sentinels in Europe! Yay!

He also has a tendency to write all the characters the same way: constant sarcastic remarks.

Am I the only one that feels like this?

Sadly no. The only time that the new Adjectiveless X-Men has been any good was when it was written by Mr Yost. Unfortunately the rest has been litter tray lining.
