    Alonso's bad ideas were mostly towards the back end of his tenure.

    Stephen Wacker deserves more credit for Fraction Hawkeye, Waid Daredevil, Superior Foes, Ms Marvel. Tom Brevoort (and Bendis) for Hickman on FF and Avengers. Gillen/McKelvie Young Avengers was Joe Quesada's idea, I think.

    But after a while I dropped out of the X-Verse after Claremont left. I popped back in for whenever Alan Davis was back. And I was back for the Joss Whedon era X-books and the Grant Morrison era books.
    And I'm all-in for this new Hickman era.

    But there are too many gaps in my knowledge of X-Men lore. And X-Men continuity is important for X-fans, a think I'd be doing a disservice to the readership if I just jumped in and ran roughshod with it or worse-- faked it. And with everything else I'm doing and working on, I don't know if I'd have the proper time to really go in there and fill all the gaps of everything I hadn't read. That responsibility to the lore-- and my gut feeling that I wouldn't be able to do it justice-- is probably the biggest reason I turned down the offer to write the flagship title and steer the overall course of the X-Verse.
    Thank you for a true answer. Really respect it.

    If his reaction was "meh," he obviously didn't want the X-books and had no intention of accepting that gig, if offered.

    Slott never struck me as a hardcore X-Men guy. Not surprised he wasn't interested.

    I'm not a fan of Slott writing flagship titles like Spider-man or FF.

    But I love his self contained work with She-hulk and Silver Surfer.

    So if he accepted the invitation, I'd rather see him writing Bill the Lobster and not a X-men Team.

    I like Dan Slott in some stories, but he is too enamoured with old comics for me to want him on X-Men.
    All his stories would revolve either around Lee's era Cyclops team or Claremont's era Storm team. I mean, even more than with other X-writers.

    C'moooon, he's one of the top ten writers in the industry today. Maybe one of the top four. He made an interesting comic about Powdered toast man for God's sake.
    The woman in the shadows with the elegant sigh. What could a common man do to catch her eye?
    Her easy manner shames me, oh I hate myself so much! I tremble and I'm breathless and I'm begging for her touch.
    She sees my anguished urges but continues smirking by, If I dare to follow her, it's likely that I'll die.
    But even as she's feeding, as my body's torn apart, Will she think upon me kindly?
    When she slowly eats my heart?

    His Thing series from 15 years ago or so, the Avengers Initiative series after Civil War, Spider-Man, Silver Surfer, Mighty Avengers, the list goes on. Some of the best superhero stories of the past two decades.

    Sacrilege. Claremont is the One Above All, when it concerns the X-Men.

    Sounds like a lot of people have totally swallowed the ‘received wisdom’ that somehow Axel was a bad editor, or that he was sacked.
