    Default Cullen Bunn's original Uncanny X-Men pitch, cosmic book led by Rachel

    He's talking about it on Twitter. Wonder who's the editor who nixed it.

    Their ship was powered by the Siege Perilous.

    And they would have encountered alien mutants across the universe.

    And—of course—Magneto would’ve played a role.

    Why didn’t it happen? It almost did. Then one editor really pushed a case against anything cosmic.

    Or maybe it would’ve just been too awesome.

    Everyone liked it... save one person who convinced the rest I guess.

    Bunn is too good for us that's all there is to say.... this is why we can't have nice things
    Chris Claremont, Peter David, Mike Carey, Cullen Bunn = canon. Others = fanfic.

    that would have been cool!
    Rachel has been really underused and she can shine on space.

    This would have been great. I'll say this at nauseam but I loved the Havok/Polaris/Rachel space trio.

    Before the cancellation, Rachel did appear in his Uncanny. He clearly had ideas for her.

    Bunn seems cool, so I hate once again, he was put on a short leash. But as a fan, I loved the Bunncanny we got.

    I like the design and the ideas, but I imagine I would have been underwhelmed by the execution.

    Yeah, I loved Rachel on team with Alex and Lorna, the space epic Realm of Kings was amazing because of those 3 and their personal war with Vulcan.

    That Psylocke design is great. Now that is how you mix both sides of her world with some nuance.

    We didnt deserve Bunn. This also sounds much better then Gillen nixed plans.

    Does Brevoort still work for Marvel? Did he at the time?

    Very interesting that he pitched Betsy as Captain Britain back in 2015.
    For the children, the wardrobe, and which one of these is a mimosa tree? Krakoa forever!

    That's probably one of the better Rachel redesigns.

    Could this run have helped rehabilitate Beast?

    Not sure if I prefer this Captain Britain book for Betsy or not.

    I think it looks much better then the cluncky armor. They should have taken more inspiration from her Outback era outfit at least.

    I think Bunn is wildly overrated, but I like his enthusiasm and it's a cool idea with nice designs.
