    Money talks and as the recent cancelled solo has shown, Iceman doesn't bring in the sales. Bobby being the leader of a team will not...

    That, or this mini-series is focused on Illyana, with her appearing in more panels than the other characters in the book, hence his frequent Magik sketches.

    This looks even worse than when this ridiculous pitch was just a flimsy idea. A book that calls attention to itself as being a book that is comprised only of Black X-Men, proclaiming that the most...

    It is sad to see all the previous efforts to be inclusive has led to extreme identity ideologues like you to seek for black people, even in fiction, to be segregated again. Well done.
