    What seeds? If she’s calling introducing swan Betsy as a “seed”, it isn’t. It’s a character that could be used, not a seed.

    So where is Morgan now that Apocalypse is gone? Still being dissected alive? She needs to wrap up all her loose ends before she continues. Clan Akkaba is another plot dropped. The alternate CB corps members that were jailed?

    She does this seed dropping stuff but gives no teases or hints.

    she was setting up an event . chill . breathe

    At least she’s consistent. Her interviews are as bad as her writing.
    her book spawned an event .
    what do u guys want, her to link her scripts ? most people in here are openly not even keeping up with the book anymore . the vitriol is kinda extra. anyways .

    the last issue was one of the best im excited to see where this goes ! the question abt Brians Avalon powers got my wheels turning

    it has been on other books, so Excalibur is just repeating the same thing

    I would criticize Excalibur more for neglecting most of its cast, but my fave book Marauders is also guilty of the same crime, so I feel like I have no right to talk lol.

    So is that what we're gonna do? We're gonna act like all along mutant magic was considered mutant technology?

    That this was properly explained in the first 6 issues of the introductory arc? How many examples of mutant technology and mutant magic did she give us leading up to X of Swords?

    Since this is the title that was supposed to be the one exploring that, mutant magic. I don't think its being salty to be critical of a writer that takes 16 issues to do big things with some of the most popular X-Men when other writers in the stable have done it in one to six issues. Al Ewing and Zeb Wells and Vita Ayala and Leah Williams if you need examples.

    And if you're going to say well then don't read it if you don't like it--no; thats such a fallacy of an argument. If 3 out of my top 5 xmen characters are in this. Why wouldn't I keep up with whats going on with them.

    I have been critical and repetitive in some of my comments. But its because she chooses not to adapt. And she doesn't give attention to half her cast. And her dialogue is just so generic at times.

    The Twitter crowd seems to be loving this title though so I guess I am in the minority.

    The excuse that she was setting up an event so she couldn't go more in depth. Come ON.

    This will be the last negative thing I say of this series.

    I guess that I'm in the minority on this forum, but I still enjoy the comic. I'm not afraid to call it one of my favorites.

    I think that a problem maybe that the data pages aren't doing this comic a favor. Some of this data may be better off being explained in the comic.

    Felt that the last issue was a very good one. I want to see some more of the Captain Britain corps that is based on Betsy.

    I'm also looking forward to the upcoming issues that deal with Kwannon.

    Al Ewing did it in 1. With Peepers. Peepers.

    Also it cannot be a title one can drop so easily since it is a critical piece of the Hickman's X-Line.

    I don't think it's being salty, people can have legitimate criticism and I totally agree with you that it is wayyy too decompressed.
