    HickMan no contest.

    BUT. Bendis has the good idea of bringing the 05 to the present and make Jean relatable and enjoyable again. thus making Xmen red posible by proxy.


    Also "New Old Jean" is more fun than MomPantsFaintJean

    Considering Bendis is the worst X-writer of all time, (yes, I've read Austen's run) it's obviously Hickman.

    I was aware of Bendis' run but it took Hickman's run to get me to invest into the X-Men.

    Bendis: better Jean, character less OOC, more engaging story

    Even Mariah Carey is a better X-Men writer than Bendis and she has never written any issues.

    Hickman... I mean I don't care about it, but I don't hate it, and it's not a glaringly obvious potential-less waste of time, that could only end in pointlessness.
    Context is king.

    X-23's most basic surface level characteristic that any idiot should grasp: Stoicism.
    I don't demand that her every minor appearance be a nuance in-depth examination of her character, but is it to much to ask she be written in Archetype?! This is storytelling 101! If you want people to stay invested in a character, you need to, at the bare minimum, write them such a way that they can plausibly be believed to be the same character!

    I actually laughed out loud when I read the title. Hickman, its not even a contest if its just in regards to X-Men and barely contest without. Bendis X-Men is some of his worst work.
    I'm a fighter. I fight for normal people. But I'll never be one. I'm not a hero. Some people can't handle that.

    I accidentally selected Bendis but I meant to select Hickman. He's a billion times a better writer than Bendis could ever be imho.

    I read the first Bendis trade with the O5 in the book store and kind of considered it a waste of my day, so I'm gonna go with Hickman.

    It's the first time I've been excited about an X-Men ongoing since...well, ever.

    This, especially the OOC.
    His current run is just an extended Elseworlds story where Moira, one of the best human supporting characters in the X-franchise suddenly becomes a mutant, the heroes have turned their backs on everything they’ve ever believed, are working w. genocidal villains, and started a cult.

    Hickman, but I didn’t hate Bendis’ run despite that it didn’t really go anywhere.

    Right? can't even call them x-men anymore, they have only the name.
