    [QUOTE=Tycon;4341370]Isn’t she too busy with Bishop? Anyway,

    Well im just following the pattern of her playing hide the sausage with Summers family enemies. That’s why I went with Black Bolt. Captain America is next in line.

    I'd unironically support this.

    New, huge, topical interview is up!

    https://comicbook.com/marvel/2019/05...e-powers-of-x/


    JH: At the conclusion of our 12 weeks of HOX and POX, we'll be launching an entire new universe of X-books. Some will be traditional fare, some carry through on ideas presented in HOX and POX. Some books are completely new concepts. I, personally, will be writing the ongoing flagship X-book.

    Now, we're already in production on all of these 'Wave 1' books and our plan at this moment is to introduce the titles, creative teams, and publishing details around SDCC, which is a week before HOX #1 goes on sale.

    We also just finished our plans for our 'Wave 2' books that will debut in 2020 and we're getting ready to hire talent for those.

    It's pretty exciting, and this kind of long-term planning is one of the benefits of knowing what direction you're headed for the next few years.

    That was some good interview. He came off as critical and strong opinionated - we love that!

    Let's hope they deliver this shake up and break the nostalgia looping the franchise is stuck.

    You have to love Hickman when he drops nuggets like “how mutants bend the Kardashev scale”.

    I really hope this works because this is exactly what I was wishing for. A new clean slate, a re-evaluation of what X-Books should be and Hickman. It’s brave, bold and seems pretty fearless. I expect a lot of people to hate this.

    Especially when he says “Where the psychological expectation is something catered, or personalized.” He is hitting the nail on the head of modern fandom right there.

    I really want to know what he means by vertical integration possibilities, that could be a hint that the new wave of X-movies will follow the same pattern.

    Don't let anyone else hold the candle that lights the way to your future because only you can sustain the flame.

    Less is more I would say no more than two X Books per month. Logan and Deadpool don't count.

    It looks like the same girl to me, but maybe it's her powers being in use, I will say don't your breath, this is the X-Men so maybe she is green now.
