The room with all the Gambits and he says something like "oh, they're always inclined to be like that" or something along those lines, whilst they're saying "Ma, Chere!".

Yeah he was just talking about all the clone Gambits, not the original. Gillen mentioned this on his formspring, - he said it's a reach to think he's a clone, if so it's just as possible Cyclops, Creed, the Guthries etc are.

He also mentioned that the "Brain damaged" thing harkened back to when Sinister removed a part of Gambits brain a few years ago to reduce his powers. Something even i forgot about, Gillen sure does know his continuity.

Ah, fair enough.

Yeah, Gillen's a pro.

Brian Wood has left me absolutely speechless.

Kinda loved Uncanny today.

So Atlantis has declared war on wakanda?? Who would win that war I wonder? Aren't the both extremely technologically advanced also?

Uncanny X-Force 27 was awesome. What a series!

I'm now in the process of rereading the entirety of New X-Men (Morrison) and Uncanny X-Force up to this point.

That's true. I'd still rather stick to Uncanny X-Force, WatXM and X-Factor, try out one or two of the new Marvel NOW! titles and keep the DC and Image titles I'm currently reading.

oh I'm still definitely going to stick with those X-titles....X-Factor is one of the most underrated and not talked about books on the shelves today.

Yeah, Uncanny X-Force, WaTXM, Uncanny X-Men and X-Factor are all terrible books.

I was not saying that they are all terrible books, just that they are no longer holding my interest as they once did. Like many on here I used to read them the day they came out after picking them up from my LCS on the way home from work, now for the most part the X-books have been reduced to bathroom reading if I think of it.

Uncanny X-Force - I really like the premise but the past couple of arcs really have not impressed me as it did from the beginning

WaTXM - It's a change of pace book that just does not work for me, I think it's terrible but I can see how others would appreciate it more than I do.

X-Factor - Easily the best X-book of the past 5 years, but like X-Force has went off the rails to a point, the cast is getting bloated and it feels a little directionless

So im a pretty big X fan, but still totally confused

What titles are going to be available after this marvel now stuff happens? Alot of the books I read are going down the tubes it seems.

#5079 Posted by allthatsgeek (127 posts) - - Show Bio

@unicornpuncher: think they are being purposefully vague about that, because the X-men are going to have the most to lose at the end of AvX (read: Jobbers), and they can't reveal TOO MUCH without spoiling the end of AvX. I think right now we have X-Men: Legacy, starring Legion, WatXM starring The Avengers apparently, and the "All New X-Men' (read: all old x-men). I would expect to see at least 2 more X-books being announced next month.

@Death Certificate: When? Where did you hear that??? Please not! X-Force is the best X-Book out there, I don't want anyone but Remender to write it. Especially not Daniel Way!

hey guys,

erm, im not sure that this is the right thread for this kind of question, But i couldnt find a better one, where i would get a quick reply. recently i've been getting into x-men comics because ive now got the time to read them. ive read morrisons and whedons runs, and am wondering which would be decent books to pick up next?

As always. This week's issue was great too.

JV's Thoughts...

One thing that's really annoying me about the MU atm is Hope. What the hell is the purpose of her character? For years we've had to put up with this annoying brat of a character, and had to endure the death of several other characters because of her, and she's done pretty much nothing so far in AvX. Really hope she does something amazing and worthwhile in the next, and final issue, of the event.

How does X-Sanction tie into AvX? Where is Cable during this whole thing? The former just seems entirely disconnected and irrelevant to the current course of the story in AvX.

I know it's still going in the solicits but the way the current storyline is going with everyone leaving it just feels like it's leading up to a final issue

I think he wanted a to cut down the roster and some of the team members needed to be on other titles. E.g Havok needed to be moved to uncanny avengers.

@danhimself: I was just wondering this myself last night. I just got into X-factor about a year ago, its been lukewarm but now its like they are doing some thinning out. From what I have read, its going to be untouched after the re-org

X-Factor used to be so much better when it first started (the first seventeen issues were absolute gold). It's still a great title, but just not as good as it used to be. Too many characters. At least, as you said, PAD's thinning the cast down.
