    I'm loving it all and if at times I need to budget down, I can pick up trades later. But regarding whether if it's overkill, I don't think so. I'll let some of the other posters chime in because I believe some have said this era doesn't have many more books than past eras, if at all.

    It's been nearly a decade since we had a real deal push for the X-Men.

    The MCU's success really screwed the X-Men simply because Fox owned the film rights and because of that the X-Men were shafted to reduce their foot print in the larger Marvel Universe.

    I grew up in the late 90's so trust me that was excess, but this is the ship correcting itself. You gotta remember the X-Men were more popular than the Avengers for decades and now they are finally back where they need to be: the top of the heap with an A-List writer at the helm.

    Yes there are a ton of books, but they will slowly be culled as all comic book lines tend to do; it's just this big because of all of the excitement behind it.

    You know, I feel like there was more to the X-Men's lost years than just the thing with Fox. I mean, they were tops of the Marvel line for so long and their history just kept getting weirder and weirder.

    I dropped it after Onslaught because it felt like a massive waste of money with all the interconnected books rehashing the same stuff over and over again. I was fine with Uncanny, New Mutants, X-Factor, X-Force and Excalibur but sometime after X-Men debuted it got to be too much.

    I have a strong attatchment to the X-men forged mainly by the 90's cartoon, and a deep appreciation of X2: X-Men United. (Best jail break scene ever.) My attatchment to the comics themselves ebbs and flows depending on how much they're being portrayed between the extremes of downtrodden losers in need of a hug, or Machiavellian schemers with all their little plans.

    This random chinese advertising reminded me of my favorite one-off X-Men villain, Ao Jun, whose flaky skin could be weaponized into zombie clones, and whose fetish was watching white girls drown each in oil soaked water. Dude had lines like "The eyes of Ao Jun are upon you!"

    I grew up with Claremont's run and I liked the X-men because Claremont made them likeable.

    After there were so many authors with slightly different X-men and my feelings didn't change.

    With this run, I don't find them sympathetic and so the appeal has waned and is situated only on a intellectual level.

    The X-Men are the most exciting corner of Marvel again. It finally feels like the real status-quo of Marvel from the 70s-early 2000s.

    Like history is correcting itself, and the decade plus of astro-turfed Avengers are the only thing that matters nosh is over.
