    For Hickman, Reed Richards is cool. I think that's all you need to know.

    He likes guys that he thinks are smart, also good two shoes. Yet, he doesn't like Jean the same way.

    Almost half of the promotional images we've seen have Jean.

    I wouldn't expect Hickman to just push his own favorites, he has bigger ambitions for the run.

    JH: Yeah. I mean, I threw out quite a few ideas I had for other books, but X-Men was the bigger, more timely, idea. It was certainly the one I was most excited about.

    So, I thought about what I wanted to do, and more importantly, what I thought the line needed, and then I flew up to the Marvel offices and pitched all of senior editorial what I had in mind. We met for a while, fought a little bit, then I went back home and polished everything up, and then, about a year ago, I presented the entirety of it at a Marvel retreat. Which went well.

    We have been working hard on it ever since then.



    Now, if pushing his favorites is also what he thinks the X-Men needs, then I would probably not complain!

    That means that they are showing Jean. And it is probably the less spoilery images.
    Just that, it doesn't mean much

    There's nothing in the interview that says he dislikes Jean Grey. It just that no one asked about her specifically.

    Yes, but bringing up a character you like makes sense. A writer not mentioning a character doesn’t necessarily mean they hate them.

    there were many questions about Jean (mainly about her marvel girl costume and jott but there were)
    Ranking of favorite characters
    Phoenix/Jean, Cyclops, Wolverine, Storm

    My ships: Jean/Scott, Wanda/Vision, Scott/Logan, Rogue/Gambit, Storm/Black Panther.
    I have very biased opinions and i like to voice for the things i like but I'm not trying to deppreciate other things. The line is thin and blur sometimes.

    Explains his lack of interest in Jean.

    But it doesn't mean she is one of his favorites. he is only writing her because Jean is alive and probably because JDW needs him to do it. Seems more an dmore he writers her out of obligation, not because he likes her

    Chris Hassam didn't pick up any Jean question.

    I've been liking what Hickman has been saying in interviews and I'm looking forward to his series, if nothing else it should be interesting. That said I do have some concerns and nitpicks.

    I really like the idea of mutants having their own culture and therefore their own fashion trends, but I don't like the idea that that means wearing superhero costumes on their off time. Not all mutants should be superheroes.

    From what we've seen so far there isn't much diversity in the characters being featured. Monet has been the only black character featured on a cover, Storm got a brief mention in this interview. The only confirmed queer character to be seen at all was Iceman way in the back of the symbolic promo image.

    It seems likely that Hickman's story will deal with time shenanigans and prominently feature Xavier, and I'm really over both of those.

    yeah sure, what X-line needs is emma with her snarkness that writers think is a personality.
