    It was nice to see a flicker of adult Cyke in the first issue of Extermination. It's really the first time Tyke has felt like Cyclops to me.

    I'd be okay with them ditching the older and keeping the younger, for Beast.

    Wow, let the exterminations begin. This is a lot like the last X-Termination series from a few years ago, with the death toll. (Let's see if they end up killing off an entire world before it's done.)...

    As they're Claremont kids, I didn't expect any different than for them to be written as interesting, with potential stories to tell. There are few writers that can make a reader care like Claremont...

    I think the school concept has worn itself out. It just doesn't mesh any longer, and yes, that's where the bulk of the glut of excess characters is coming from.

    I'm talking about role on the X-Men team. Her power set didn't matter. She could've had the mutant ability to take out the trash three times a week. What she had to be was a cute teen girl to be...

    I think you're talking power set again, not role in the X-Men core team, because Boom Boom never had a role in the core team.

    In powers, yes, I'd agree with you. I think Claremont was referring to their roles on the team, at the time. This was post Mutant Massacre, where Kitty was a permanent ghost and Nightcrawler was in a...

    Disagree. X-Men, and comics in general, are a serial genre. You get to know the characters and care about them, and when they're replaced, what you were interested in is gone. Wolverine, Kitty,...

    Yeah, part of the problem is many newer characters are retreads of older ones (like the ones I listed, for example) and it comes off as a replacement agenda. If they'd go for something unique, that...

    Yep, making the franchise revolve around the decisions of one character (or even the dynamic of two) is part of what has brought them so low now. We had a decade and a half where editorial saw...

    Yeah, that's basically what I'm taking from this. There's about to be a massive culling of the franchise (again). Maybe they'll learn from it this time and stop creating disposables.

    It's funny that aligning with the political left was mentioned, because that's exactly what ANAD did that launched the franchise to popularity.

    He did. I really hated that Aaron left Amazing after the opening arc. It seems like Kurt would've gotten some real character development if he'd stuck around longer.
