    I loved NXM when Skottie Young drew the book.

    I think you’re focusing on the wrong thing of what I’m saying. But yes, when the bus exploded and when the cast was small and manageable again.

    Honestly, that's kind of messed up.

    New X-men focused on the same amount of kids pre and post explosion. I dont feel like the bus made the cast more manageable bc the previous writers only focused on a small group of students anyway. DeciMation only really brought a different group into that spotlight

    Being happy about a fictional mass murder is kind of messed up.

    They never should’ve cancelled the book when it was firing on all cylinders. X-Force was bad and Young X-Men was terrible.

    You could argue that pre-HoM New X-Men always focused on both the New Mutants squad and Hellions squad plus the occasional background students. All their drama was intertwined, and we even saw how different X-events affected the lesser-known squads like Northstar’s death on mostly Anole and his team. Getting rid of Icarus, Wallflower, Tag, all the ppl on the bus did help center focus on Emma’s new team.

    fuego take on X-Force. but Young X-Men should never have been made. I did like Carey using X-Men Legacy as the spiritual successor to New X-Men.

    Agreed on Young X-Men but I thought X-Force was superb. But aside from that, I could never really fathom why they cancelled New X-Men when it had gained massive momentum and sales thanks for Kyle & Yost's work and Messiah Complex. They always say that student books don't sell but I don't really recall that being true for New X-Men, it was more a creative decision to replace it with Young X-Men which backfired spectacularly.

    Pre-Messiah Complex New X-Men sold better than Action Comics and Superman.

    But Alonso pretty much came in to tear the franchise down around Messiah Complex and it never really recovered except maybe during the period Lowe was group editor.

    Go gather the guns, we'll blast them at sea
    She begged for me not to shoot
    For "My true love is here with me,
    And I've never loved thee,

    So go fetch a bottle of rum dear friends
    And fill up my glass to the rim
    For I'm not the man, I used to be
    Now I'm one of them
    Is the death of the marriage coming? The accents torn apart again, sugah?
