    Regarding the sales of Rosenberg, I think that if you put Scott and Logan on the same team after so many years apart, it does not matter the quality, it will sell well.

    Apocalypse was evil all along? What a tweeeest.
    So, This is Forever is ending with everything coming together. Brace yourselves for the reveal that the X-Men are stuck on a simulation of Sinister or he's behind everything (IT WAS ME, SCOTT! IT WAS ME ALL ALONG!).
    Mr. And Mrs. X ending is sad but not that sad. Shame X-Force never really took off. Let's hope the Hickman manages to write a great story despite the editorial.

    Tuning in for Hickman's X-Men. Celebrating the end of this Deadpool run.
    On your left, 'till the end of the line.
    Maximum effort.

    it's like someone opened a backdoor and installed all kind of Trojans in her head, we need Sage/Tessa to work her mojo on her!
    It's funny because when I saw her behind on the glass at the end of the show, I thought, "That's where she needs to be. In captivity. Behind a glass in a lab somewhere that she can be studied like the psychotic specimen she is."

    Thanks for this. Sounds good and fair to me. I like Rosenberg's writing; I haven't read the last issue of UNCANNY so can't comment, but overall I think he's been handicapped as to how deep he can get into his story lines, because plans have been changing.

    Also, not directed at bishop66, but JDW is a good editor! I think he's been dealing with previous plans, trying to get his office in order for the new direction. I imagine it's not easy to make these moves, cancel books that have passionate followers, let writers and artists go and move others to new books. I reserve judgement of his tenure until several years have gone by, and we can see how this streamlining of the X-Line pans out.

    I have a theory--I think Marvel is still keeping the X-Men on cold water, if not ice, waiting to see how Marvel Studios and the television division want to handle them. I know that is counter-intuitive, because publishing is supposed to be the dog that wags the movie/tv tail, but the thought occurred to me.

    Anyway, I would love to see the X-Men franchise streamlined, with Hickman on both the flagship titles and some of these great writers on other X-Books. It would be nice if this lasts at least 2 years. It's unnerving, these constant book reboots and creative team changes and the jagged continuity this causes.

    The solicitations are a wrapping-up, I guess. If you've been following Age of X-Man then you'll buy the finales. You want to get in on the ground floor of the two Hickman books. There's always a Wolverine book for his fans. I guess the real fireworks will be in the fall? Personally, I'm more concerned with my favorite characters and what's going to happen to them.

    Out of curiosity, have you heard any information about a new Wolverine solo?. I feels weird that he is back without one at the moment.

    A few things to key off of:

    Uncanny:
    As Cyclops’ cleanup mission nears its close, all the problems the X-Men face come together. The truth behind the Hellfire Club’s intentions, the culmination of the O.N.E.’s assaults on mutantkind and even the inner struggles within the team... It all ends here. This is forever.

    X-Force:
    Will Cable and his X-Force be able to stop them, or will the time stream be forever altered? Find out in this final showdown!

    PoX:
    Intertwining with HOUSE OF X, POWERS OF X reveals the secret past, present and future of mutantkind, changing the way you look at every X-Men story before and after. You do not want to miss the next seminal moment in the history of the X-Men!

    This stinks of a major retcon to me, or maybe more than one. It seems Marvel is saying clearly that canon is about to be turned on it's ear. I'm trying to imagine what single retcon could effect literally every X-Men story, or even the majority of them. Or it's all just BS. I'm really not sure.

    What's the sense of this? Is it all smoke and mirrors or will meaningful change actually occur?

    bishop66 said a couple months ago that there would be a "House of M" type story that would adress Magneto's family. Well, we have House of X now and Magneto seems to be playing a prominent part.

    I feel something is going to be changed. Good or bad, we'll have to see. Based off what Hickman said at that panel, it might upset quite a few people. Then again, it could be nothing to just hype the story.

    Seriously though, are we paying a buck extra for Hickman because the charts and graphs will be of unusually high quality?

    Truth to tell...I'm not going to be too pressed if they do a huge retcon of the x-mythos.
    While it may canonically change certain elements the past 50-plus years...it doesn't erase the last 50-plus years from existence. We would still have our singles and trades to revisit.
    I just hope that if they do a line-wide retcon...it will be interesting and executed well and thoughtfully...that's all I ask.
