    Default Axel Alonso wanted Dan Slott to be the "God of X"

    https://www.adventuresinpoortaste.co...-could-refuse/
    In an interview with the AIPT Comics Podcast, Slott told co-hosts David Brooke and Forrest Hollingsworth that when his lengthy Spider-Man run was nearing its end, then Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso took Slott out to lunch to pitch him what he wanted him to tackle next.

    “You can be the God of X,” Alonso told Slott. “You can guide the X-Men universe.”

    Slott’s immediate response? “Mehhh,” which surprised Alonso.

    Thank God Axel Alonso was X-ed from his top editor position. All puns intended.
    Don't let anyone else hold the candle that lights the way to your future because only you can sustain the flame.

    Offering full control of franchises to people who clearly don’t care about it is why Alonso was such a disaster.

    Alonso didn't knew that.

    Hickman isn't doing for me, but Slott is not the right guy for a big franchise like x-men

    Well, apparently Iron Man was what he really wanted anyway - he ended up on that and Fantastic Four. No good having writers who aren't interested in the characters they're in charge of. If his reaction to X-Men is "meh", then it's right that they didn't end up giving him the book.

    I'm just imagining Slott getting into it daily with x-twitter...would've been something to see.

    maybe his Spider-Man went too long but Superior was so good.

    I'm curious what he would do.... Hickman's whole plan is interesting but characters still feel lifeless

    I think everyone - Mr Slott included - is happier for this not having happened, yes.
