    I at least conceptually LIKE the idea of Mr.X except... There's already a Mr.X.

    I mean its pretty interesting to think all of phantomex's activities add up to him being "merged with Prof x's spirit" or whatever kind of a lot to give Charles legs, and a costume change.

    My priority is enjoying and supporting stories of timeless heroism and conflict.
    Everything else is irrelevant.

    I'd much rather have Soule working on a main X-Men team book - the core titles are so weak right now, I hate how everything is spun into new books when you could use Jean, Charles etc. to make the main ones more interesting. Instead they keep coming out with a new half-dozen spin-offs which end up being inevitably short-lived.

    I voted no because I am indifferent to Xavier being dead, alive or in space (I think my preference would be for him to be alive, married to Lilandra, in space, as consort king of the Shi Ar empire)
    And I think a Xavier who keeps his Xavier powers in the body of Fantomex, with the powers of Fantomex, risks being a very overpowered Mary Sue.

    "Hi, I have the strongest mind in the universe, also I am a super athletic spy with 3 brains for better multitasking and processing information, and nano active blood, and my own personal spaceship who shapeshifts into a hot robowoman who loves me, and super illusion misdirection powers, and I am devilishly good looking and charming too"

    that would be worse than Claremont Sage

    3. That is actually an argument against, as by the time the secret project comes out, it won't be a fresh idea.
    4. He has 6 more issues.
    5. That is just repeating the statement, not evidence.
    sorry, but this reads as a non-related jumble of statements more akin to throwing a dart at a wall of characters

    the whole point of astonishing x-men was to bring the professor back to life in fantom's body ... it's already been done, guys the plot point is old news.

    the question now is what will soule do with him as an encore?

    If Prof X is the new Psylocke, he better runs around in a speedo... straps optional

    I literally followed your format for providing evidence, perhaps you need to reflect upon some things.

    Well, today's Astonishing X-Men completely sold me on the idea of this new Xavier. Dude is the best kind of douchebag and could provide some really fun stories.

    If Charles Soule is writing it, then yes. I'm certainly excited about the prospect of a Professor X solo series. I think he needs one. Ever since the latter part of Grant Morrison's run, Professor X has been deconstructed and discredited at every turn. It's like everyone at Marvel is trying to make him less likable. But he's still Professor X and I think his character needs to be rebuilt so that he can guide the X-men again. And after reading Astonishing X-men, I think Charles Soule is best suited to do just that.

    sorry, but you did not and you know you didn't. if you're going to provide a counterpoint, you could at least try to put an effort into it.

    if you don't think it's the professor, i'm certainly here to read a well-reasoned argument otherwise, as i'm sure the rest of the board would be as well.

    as for professor in today's comic, it certainly looks like soule is here to give us a strong re-introduction to charles.
