    I laughed way too hard at that..
    In the real world i would be BOTH pro registration and Pro mutant rights. Xavier and Trask were both right.

    I guess he needs a hobby to distract him from the death of his mother.

    I'm less concerned with Apocalypse and more with Jubilee. I know Hickman said he hand picked all the casts, but I don't know how much of that I believe - he conveniently had Tini Howard's favorite character on the book she was writing before she got picked for it? Nah. That was all Tini. And then she didn't even put Ric's best friend on it!

    Hickman never said he handpicked the casts. Every writer had to pitch.

    He did though, at the Next Big Thing panel where the teams were revealed.

    I’m going to believe JDW talking extensively about the behind the scenes and every writer conveniently getting to write their fav (do you seriously think Hickman handpicked all of Brisson’s favs?) over Chris Arrant misconstruing a statement at a panel.

    AFAIK Hickman handpicked the creative teams, not the rosters.

    There's obviously some level of collaboration between HiX-Man and the various creative teams...clearly. Regardless of who said what's and where.

    What do you guys think the "Ascension" thing refers to, from the new solicits? Just Betsy getting Captain Britain's powers or something more?

    I was at the panel! Hickman handpicked the creative teams, and helped with plotting the direction of each book. Tini Howard actually mentioned multiple times that Apocalypse was the first character SHE chose for Excalibur.

    But that Betsy and dragon cover is absolutely gorgeous.

    I mean, I'm sure people wanted characters based on who their faves were.

    I can see it now:

    Hickman: So, everyone, happy you're all on board. I printed out some spread sheets and I think-

    Tini: Apocalypse!

    Same. I can't wait for him and Jubes to converse.

    And I can only speak for myself but I jumped on this appreciation thread because I absolutely love the lineup and it's been fun discussing the history these particular characters have and how they may interact, both personally and with their powers. Then the preview art we've seen and the interviews - I love this thread. I appreciate this thread. I appreciate the appreciation of this thread.

    Now as I said elsewhere, when does Ric die and get resurrected so he can stand tall, glorious and naked?

    If this series doesn't do Apocalypse justice then I riot. Seriously, unless he is like a figurehead or adviser role the chances of making him a jobber or just ignoring his powers/potential increase exponentially.

    Im scared.
