    Default Uncanny X-Men relaunch verdict so far?

    I am really enjoying the Uncanny X-Men relaunch so far, cool characters good arc, enjoyable direction so much so I am kind of bummed. First off let me say that Hickman might be my favorite writer in the biz right now and I have no doubt that he will do wonders for the franchise, I just kind of wish that this writer/artist/direction could have gotten a little longer to play out. I felt the same about the end of the run on Astonishing X-Men, while recognizing it was really meant to get characters in place for the next version, I wish it could have started a year earlier since it was more enjoyable than the book had been. The same with Uncanny I kind of wish we could get a year more out of this storyline before the big Hickman reboot since I am enjoying it more than anything X-related for a few years.

    I'm enjoying it. I was pretty excited for AoX and was sort of just going to casually read Uncanny in the background, but I've ended up liking Uncanny more and the Age books pretty much dropped off my radar with the exception of NextGen.

    It absolutely has it's flaws (and I hate the art), but I've enjoyed the premise and look forward to see where they are taking the story in prep for Hix.

    Itís pretty average writing to me, but I think itís a major help that Extraordinary/Gold/Disassembled were all shit. Age of X-Man has been a much less tonedeaf event that Iím enjoying far more.

    It's simply okay, but it doesn't read like a team book. This is where the thought bubbles are truly missed. I don't know the motivations for most of the characters, especially the women. They play the background too much. Maybe there are too many members and right now Cyclops is (rightfully) sucking up all the spotlight.
    And the whole logic for them living in the basement of a bar is just strange. There should have been some acknowledgement of Xian's business and wealth. Even infected with the T/O virus she could have access her funds and set up a proper facility for the team.

    And they should fix Sean. Infect him with the T/O virus and than and that have Dark Beast "cure" him.

    And get Larroca off the book. He can't do fight choreography anymore and it just look clutter out of sequence and unfocused. Oh, and I hate how he makes Rhane so tall and too pretty. I think that's why she wanted to leave. She would have gotten confused with Hope when she was in her normal form.

    Disassembled was too long and nothing happened and with Rosenberg too many things happen that he does not even have time to explain.

    It's a mess.

    Who knows ? Hickman's run could be much worse than Rosenberg's run just like that overhyped Disassembled i.e. too many issues for single simple storyline.

    Rosenberg's run is too rushed and packed too many storylines into too few issues. If it were developed into more issues (instead of off-panel), it would have been great.

    Rosenberg's run is the opposite of Disassembled.....

    At least we have many surprises and the New Mutants finally get the limelight.

    Disassembled and AoXM were much more boring. So I am enjoying this run.

    Its another extinction problem in the span of a decade after the last one. Plus there is a death like every issue.

    Its abysmal. The beginning had promise but I didn't want to read this.

    Horrible. I thought with Disassembled it couldnt get worse and Marvel proved me wrong.

    there are good things there, the problem is that there is so little space and it feels rushed.

    I have enjoyed the scott/logan interactions, hope and the new mutants.
    Ranking of favorite characters
    Phoenix/Jean, Cyclops, Wolverine, Storm

    These character are not real and nobody loves each other for real. They will dump and love people even if it makes no sense just to for the sake of it.
    My ships: Jean/Scott, Wanda/Vision, Scott/Logan, Rogue/Gambit, Storm/Black Panther.

    Still mad Bunn-canny got derailed by Lover's Spat 2, Bad Movie tie-in attempt and Death of Best-clops.

    Sad his Uncanny run got overrun with editorial tyranny that disrupted his story before it was cancelled at 19. But Rosenberg gets to be on Uncanny for 20+ issues with a 10 issue head-start.

    Rereading Bunncanny, and even reading his Uncanny trivia for stories he had planned is more interesting than anything I have seen from Rosenberg.

    Plus, Bunn had 2 of my favs that he was doing great with. Monet & Creed. Meanwhile, Rosenberg apparently doesn't like Monet & judging by his stale interview, has no decent plans for Creed beyond one-note villainy and probable jobbing. I saw him write Creed in PR, and it wasn't good. lol

    So, all I can think of whenever I see anything new is how much I miss Bunn. lol Any favorite or liked character I have, Bunn almost always did justice to. Monet, Sabretooth, Deadpool, Domino, etc.

    I wanted to read about him addressing Psylocke's body-change.
    I wanted to see him slowly pull Creed back to villainy with Alzheimer's metaphor.
    I wanted to see Monet's conflict with Marius play out
    Monet's involvement with the HFC
    The supposed rough relationship of Mystique vs. M
    More of mentally-stable Mystique
    The payout of the Creed x Monet romance
    Lord knows how the Mystique x Fantomex deal would go
    Along with where he was gonna go with Warren.

    ALL of this I was more invested in than Rosenberg's mess of Wolverine bickering with Cyclops, with guest appearance whining from Alex and new death every issue.
