    I liked it too, but even the least well recieved one outsold his supposed "glorious return" to the x-men that isnt even canon anymore, it's just so enjoyable/

    Yeah, maybe Rob wouldn't be so worked up about how the X-Men were doing if he just stopped reading everything everyone was saying about anything he has the slightest interest in and then throwing his opinions out there to be jumped on by people looking to get worked up about something too.

    Maybe we would all enjoy our comics more.

    So if Knull created the x-gene then. That is basically the worst of 90s comics stamping on a human face forever.

It's not a coincidence that most people who cared about X-Men because of the metaphor(or at least their fight for their rights regardless of how it paralleled to real world struggles) enjoy it, and people who just think of the X-Men as a cool superhero team like any others are against it.
    You know, I think you're onto something.

    Cool that Rob has an opinion but the 90s are dead. Let dead stay dead.

    Of course he wants the 90’s back, he’d love to be relevant again.

    Fashion and comics are the only things that weren't good about the '90s.

    Wasn't the 90s the decade that had X-men#1 the highest selling comic of all time and spawned the famed blue and gold teams. The books that were consistently at the top of the charts and really pushed the X-Men into the public consciousness in a big way. Now people consider that era trash? I guess it really is a " what have you done for me lately" time we are living in. Twenty years from now can we expect the Krakoa era to be considered trash as well?

    Hickmanís Krakoa is here to stay haters. We had to endure awful consecutive periods from Bendis to Soule to Guggenheim to Rosenberg. We deserve a break after that long period of torture.

    This new status quo with the X-Men has never been better and itís clearly well received all over. Buckle up and enjoy the ride.

    While I suppose time moves on, it did not feel that long ago that the X-boards entry point seemed to be The Animated Series followed by Generation X. I don't think Hickman era is going to hit 90s era scorn, but it will probably be somewhere like Morrison-Whedon. Although we might still be a few years from that era becoming the new 90s.
