    You can certainly make the argument that when Bendis was writing the books he was doing interesting stuff and was working with a murderer's row of artist -- I honestly can't remember when the X-line has looked better than that. But I remember the day he quit those books, and why, and it's important to keep in mind that a lot of this job of ours is alchemy, not chemistry.
    I found this bit from Hickman's interview interesting, as it seems to imply there's a specific reason for Bendis leaving the X-books when he did other than he felt he had told the stories he wanted to tell. I wonder if that's when the "Complex" really hit the comics side of things, not so much creatively but more on the financial/budgeting side.

    That actually kind of makes sense, even if one of the ten powers is just Gambit’s power to rock a manbag.

    Maybe this is Rogue and Gambit's child then. They are using Magik, Dani, Kitty, Rachel, Piotr based on costuming alone.

    I know it's stupid and there's no genetics in between but ... Is not Gambit technically Nightcrawler's brother-in-law?

    My guess is the Inhumans non-sense. The ending of his run, Uncanny specially, always felt like he lost interest in the middle, but maybe he did because he wouldn't be able to see it long-term like he wanted to and had to rush things.

    so who are the characters the author Mr. hickman is focusing on? If it's more Scott x Jean x Logan angst with everyone else as C-list supporting cast, forget it, hard pass. Another Phoenix threat? Triple hard pass.
    I want severely neglected characters to get the spotlight for once.
    my priority list: Firestar, Iceman, Nightcrawler, Mirage, Sunspot, Bishop, Storm.

    They aren't his favorite. Expect Magneto, Emma, Scott when he starts his flagship

    House of X, powers of X seems to be more about a ensemble cast.

    Hickman doesn't seem the type of getting interested in reviving Scott/Jean/Logan triangle. Hell, I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't feature Scott and Jean as a couple at all. And he's the one writer that can be trusted to get the Phoenix right.

    Also, Hickman is not there to give spotlight to any character some fans feel were neglected, but rather to move the franchise a role forward. The neglected part certainly DOESN'T apply in the last few years to Roberto (partially by Hickman himself), Ororo (who's being used in BP and had spotlight with Lemire, it's just too bad that sucked) or Iceman, who even had his own solo. Nightcrawler seems to have a role based on the covers at least. But he already said there will be multiple books after the minis end.

    Didn't Marvel try that and it's one of the things that led to the line's current problems?
