When people question or doubt the possibility of a book about "X-Women", it makes me wonder why the X-men are still such a patriarchy? When Professor X was still their leader and father-figure it was fine, but when he was dismissed, and the died, the X-men have still remained led by white males, on every team and the two books that did have two female leaders (X-men and New Mutants) were canceled!
There are others with the leadership and vision to guide the X-men and they don't need a dick to do so. But the three alpha males i listed have been the centre of the X-books for years and none of them make any more sense at the top with all that has happened and all the marvelous hypocrisy. So if Marvel wanted to really change it all up they would have Wolverine get kicked out of the X-men but remain only an Avenger, kill off Cyclops because he really should be dead by now, and return Magneto to his villainous ways. Then we can have others like the X-women rise up and lead for a change, and it would acceptable to see beta males rise up too and get their chance as well.
So, could the X-books still be as successful with those guys gone? And would the X-world be that affected?
