    ...and when you showed up, you complained about stuff you didn't like such as how Emma was portrayed, including during IvX.

    TL;DR: you've complained plenty yourself. All sunshine and roses you...

    Then scroll past them. No one is forcing you to engage.



    ISTR quite a bit of grumbling from you about Emma's depiction, among other things, in those days. To be fair, though, that may have...

    Much of the pre-existing mythos no longer makes sense as written in the context of Hickman's retcons. Thus, it is a soft reboot. Those events still "happened", but not as we originally read them.

    Scroll up. Toward the top of your screen, you'll see a menu bar. The second option from the right should say "Settings". Click on that. In the screen that appears, scroll down. In the bottom...

    I disagree. The Moira-related retcons were a massive rewrite of X-Men history. Yes, it's still technically "616", but it's not a continuation of the X-Men narrative as written before. Hickman has...

    Because, for whatever reason, Hickman wanted to show that Gateway is alive and allied with the X-Men again.

    In his original run, Claremont typically didn't hit the reset button on his characters. Back then, he was very much on the "change" side of the "change vs. illusion of change" argument. What...

    I'm not expecting Claremont-formula character development. Hickman isn't Claremont. Also, Hickman's run is a soft reboot rather than a continuation of the preexisting canon so I don't expect anyone...

    I'd rather Hickman have the guts to play it dead straight--honest and sentimental.

    I'm sick of trollish meta-commentary.

    I doubt things are headed toward another reboot so soon. I think Hickman has already mapped out the main plot points of his run, but he's stretching them out over 3-4 years to give time for other...

    I expect that's what we'll get in the upcoming Giant-Size X-Men #1.

    Scott and Jean are each other's "Primary", Logan is Jean's "Secondary", and Emma is Scott's "Secondary".

    It's that "human-sponsored" part that you keep over-exaggerating.

    It's not. It's shock value to draw attention to the books. The point of having Xavier abandon his dream of integration--or at least appear to--is to create tension, generate drama, and get reader...

    Oh, there are a number of possibilities. Mind control is one. Most of them being Krakoa-clones is another. Hickman has built in several ways for his run to easily be retconned away once it's done....

    I'm still not convinced the Xavier we're seeing is really Xavier or that anything he, Moira, and Magneto have been up to should be taken at face value.

    But, that's irrelevant to the argument at...

    Sigh.

    Xavier has traditionally been portrayed as the mutant allegory of MLK with Magneto as an allegory for Malcolm X.

    Since Xavier has repudiated his dream of integration in a way that MLK...
