    Looking forward to more X-Force and Wolverine.


    And it's very early, but I think Ben Percy is the next "architect" to ascend at Marvel, along with Cates.
    I hope so, Percy is really good

    I really like Percy's thought process behind how he approaches characters, their stories, and development of his scripts.

    He's come a long way since he was almost universally disliked pre Green Arrow Rebirth.

    That's not what I recall, but maybe it soured later on.

    Really like how Percy talks up the importance of Xavier. He really is the lynchpin of Krakoa, the one who brought it all together; more so even than Moira. This is far and away the best book of Dawn of X, and the only true team book.

    Yeah, and I’ll never get why people are so obsessed with teams. It’s not football (either real, american, or the thing where Australians basically have a fight.)

    X-force is how you write teams

    I did it! I bit the bullet and added X-force to my pull-list.

    I donít want to derail about piracy but if people enjoy the book and can afford it then we should add this book to our pull lists and support it. I encourage those able to support the books that we enjoy.

    Itís a pretty narrow and outdated way to look at things, especially post-HoXPoX. Weíre not seeing team books so much as weíre seeing ensemble books. Marauders has a team on the ship but two of the main characters arenít even on the boat much less the team.

    Similarly, X-Force is less a team and more an organization that will include team-ups of its members.

    Same with X-Men...I for one absolutely LOVE the ensemble format as I get to see many more mutants than if they were a set teams

    Agreed. Everyone now occupies a place in the nation and many of them have roles critical to the infrastructure of said nation. This new approach allows for characters to more organically appear in any book whenever they or their work becomes relevant. HoX gave us some top notch world-building and set the stage for even more. The days of books and characters existing in a vacuum seem to be largely behind us for now.
