    I think most fans would want sales comfortably above the cancellation line. The original run simply didn't sell, so why does Marvel think more of the same will sell more?

    This makes part of me think that Marvel brought this book back as a publicity move. I'm glad for the book's fans, but I don't expect it to go past 7 issues.
    What can I say but, "I love comics."

    For the series to succeed and not just assume people will buy it they need to give us a proper version of the character. Iceman was and is fun loving, comedic occasionally goofy and when the situation arose could be a serious character imo. The new series had the character and like too many other comic characters recently at Marvel come across as bitter, angry, terrible people you would not want to save their lives and whom the writer seemed so intent on spitting in the face of the word superhero it's no wonder it sold poorly and not many people were reading to keep the first run alive. With all due respect I want to read superheros not characters who are terrible human being and to me at least seemed written as one step removed from being villains. The can write good stories from now to the end of the world it won't sell well if the main character is unlikable imo. I'm not saying make a perfect character yet I also don't want a character that feels, acts and behaves more like a villain and less like a superhero.
    Jean loves me this I know because the church says it so.

    Havok and Emma were right.

    Bobby's first Pride with the other LGBT+ mutants, maybe take the opportunity to properly out Rachel, Yana, Kitty, and Psylocke.

    I know he's not very popular these days, and we might get this in the Astonishing annual, but we still haven't seen Bobby and Hank have any significant interaction since he came out.
    I hope this means we get more of Michaela (cause I miss her). His class should be:

    -Decay
    -Oya
    -Crosta
    -Dust
    -Rockslide
    -Match
    -Flourish

    But not so much focus that it turns into a stealth team book or stealth school book, but just enough that it realistically portrays Bobby in the role of a teacher.

    Adult Jean, Mystique and Emma have the impression that it would be fun see them interacting with Bobby .

    I meant/thought Grace could pick up a more reformed Daken from after his stint on Laura's book. Grace clarified that his take on Daken in the first arc took place before the events in Laura's book, and the Bobby/Daken kiss that "froze" the Seed () was the beginning of the thaw in Daken's edge (...that also sounds like an innuendo).

    But yeah, I encourage pre-ordering the hell out of this anyway.

    Can I try, tho?

    I honestly didn't see Bobby as super bitter or angry beyond his normal phases he goes through. He's a pretty hotheaded guy for someone with ice cold powers.

    So. Obviously Marvel's learned nothing from last year's failures.

    I want to see Mystique interact with Bobby again, after what Carey did with them.

    I liked the story, but didn't care much for his Bobby voice. He went from a little awkward to flamboyantly "stereotypically" gay.. It was a little over the top for me

    A book wins critical acclaims and nods, has several teenagers and closeted and proudly out individuals across the world writing in about how much it meant to them, possibly did good in digital and TPB sales.

    And haters be like, "HOW DARE WE GET A FOLLOW-UP TO SOMETHING THAT'S NOT ALL ABOUT ME?!"

    Off topic but agreed that Storm should have a solo series. She should have had a long running on-going by now.

    HAHAHA Yes.
    I'm a fighter. I fight for normal people. But I'll never be one. I'm not a hero. Some people can't handle that.

    They haven't? I'm pretty sure there's ten or so other X-books starring almost nothing but straight white people.
