    Default Which post-Bendis flagship title has been the worst?

    I think we can all agree that the X-Men franchise has had it rough lately. We've had a couple of gems(though not everyone agrees which ones they are), but the flagship titles have definetely been disappointing. People hated Bendis so much, but what came after him made his run look much better in hindsight. So, from all the recent critically massacred(if we are the critics at least LOL) flagship titles, which one you hated the most?

    They're all the same book.

    Gold has been more boring but Uncanny more terrible, I do not know which one to vote for.

    ... Uncanny?

    Unless you specifically stan someone the R murdered who you don't think will come back, you're crazy if you don't say Gold.
    Our main character, a socially awkward outcast, gains newfound confidence and arrogance before committing a string of horrid acts. He then wears a fancy suit and proceeds to dance like a maniac to music that isn't actually there playing around him.

    As much as Gold and Uncanny are bad for me Extraordinary X-men is the worst of them all.

    Uncanny by Rosenberg.

    Lemire got screwed by being put on a flagship at the beginning of the Inhumans push.

    I thought about adding Age of X-Man, but it was a whole thing with lots of books and writers, and putting only Marvelous which was kind of the flagship would be weird. So I thought "Well, Uncanny and AOXM are the same era and UXM was the real main book of that" and left it like that lol.

    Gonna go with Guggs. I got something out of the other 2, but there was nothing redeeming about his run for me. Lemire and Rosenberg had some interesting plot points and enjoyable action scenes at times. Guggs was such a waste of paper I stopped buying the book altogether at the time.

    Can the answer be all of them? They all suffered from the worst sin of being overwrought. X-Men Gold was a terrible send up to Claremont; Rosenberg's Uncanny was rife with pointless death with little to no depth and Extraordinary was sacked with a ridiculously stupid editorial edict.

    I sincerely believe that Gold is downright inoffensive. It is terribly boring and uninteresting but it never gets to do anything that I see extremely bad. Uncanny although it has moments that are better than anything in Gold also has much worse moments.

    Extraordinary went nowhere due to Apocalypse tie-in and Inhuman nonsense.
    Gold started off good but bombed.
    UXM (2019) only had 4 good issues and only had 2 story arcs across 22 issues. The Annual was the only good part.

    So UXM (2019) sucked the most.

    Uncanny. Gold was dumb and bad. Uncanny was offensively bad. A pointless (and occasionally awful for various reasons) massacre, with just about every character written completely OOC.

    Rosenberg's run, because at least Gold, while boring, didn't really do that much damage to the characters, and Guggenheim seemed to actually like them-if anything, perhaps he liked some of them too much.

    I don't think there has been a good team book Post Bendis outside of Red.
