    I do think it's time for them to go back though, and I like them.
    Remember when the same set of characters appeared across titles and events, for years? What makes some believe in the 05'ers absence Marvel's plans of currently featuring "multiple versions of characters" won't become "the same characters" again? Or devote time, effort, and resources to characters unfortunately they don't utilize in any meaningful way now?

    Agree on them returning especially with them being the actual 05'ers I think their story is coming to a close or hope so.

    True!

    I'm still wondering the mental gymnastic to form the thought, type it and not see the irony.

    And always the day after DC's. Since the 14th was only the second Monday of the month, that makes it obvious that the solicits weren't due this week.

    Is it just me, or does Extermination have the potential to be Marvel's Flashpoint? That's the event that created the DC New 52.

    New Teen Titans is a DC team, that was made from Justice League Sidekicks and legacy.

    seems like O5 are mean to stay

    Given that the past few years, the X-line has included titles specifically for the O5, and a couple events too, I think it's a safe assumption that taking them off the board would then make room for other characters to have a little more panel time and character development. I think in terms of X-Men Blue at least that the new team is the more interesting one, and one Bunn is more invested in.

    The new teen titans were the only Dc franchise that stood up against Claremont X men of the 80's in popularity

    X-treme era save was good, she got messier after that.

    It was a great comic. Nobody expected the surge in popularity.
    I come when there's something to take but I never give anything back.
    I know what you want. But it is not here. It's gone and it will never ever come again...

    I wonder if this stories will tie-in. they are using the same costumes but is not listed as a tie-in.
    i'm worried for what happens with bobby, he isn't in any of the covers or postcredits.

    Scott looks so ugly with that hair, ugh.

    Seems like he's dead. Kind of a no-brainer. No-show in an apocalyptic future tends to mean dead. Wonder why him though.

    And those are definitely tie-ins, I assume they aren't listed as such bc it's following Magneto's own story or something? Like, if this is a continuation of Blue, more than just a tie-in, it wouldn't be a sensible jumping on point. That's the best I can come up with. It is odd.


    This really disappointed me in the solicits, as I was hoping for Blue to end with quite a powerful O5 versus Magneto finale, but that just seems to be two issues before the series ends up having to capitulate to a cross-over event. Expect this is what frustrated Bunn's plans those weeks ago, he hasn't had a cross-over-free X-Men run at all!

    Ironically, Ive always thought he was the most expendable and the one likely to die were the team to stay in present day

    I honestly am not getting much of a “status quo changer” from this event. It seems to be similar to battle of the atom, and it was hyped way more than extermination. And while I enjoyed bota, it seems many people didn’t. And it certainly wasn’t a game changer. So unless they are hiding major secrets, I’m not expecting anything other than fluff entertainment.

    It's not about "who is the target" it's just about people wanting variety and something different not same old stuff again and again
    You’re not wrong. But there is nothing stppping marvel from releasing more X-men books with non 05 in them.

    Right or wrong, if the 05 are getting preferential treatment it’s because marvel thinks more readers want to read about them then about other unused charters.
