    I'm sure that's not actually meant to be the case, but the way this interview went it kinda ended up feeling like Vita being constantly like "I didn't come up with any of this!!! Judge me for the execution not the concept!!!" lol.

    The awkward thing is that the guy who DID come up with it isn't around anymore.

    Art good and Vita Ayala is pretty competent so far. So I'll try it.

    Do you mean the Chris Robinson guy Ayala mentioned?

    That told me absolutely nothing.
    Personal opinion: I would prefer ‘Daycrawler’ over ‘Nighty-Night’.
    Is the Angel guy Cherub?

    LOL! Well, I mean, fair. Vita is probably well aware no one was knocking down Marvel's door demanding this concept. And after the turn-around they did with New Mutants, I'm very willing to trust them on execution.

    Was that a duck in the preview art?

    I don't know the context, but I want to find out.

    Honestly...from the first interviews when this was initially meant to be released I wasn't convinced that this was a book that was absolutely necessary.
    After this interview (and the preview)...I'm still not convinced. So I won't be picking this up.
    For those more enthused, I do hope it hits the target and proves to be a worthwhile read.

    I thought this was touted as Vita's big idea that was pitched? This is totally the opposite. I like the art but I still can't stand the dialogue, character designs or junk like "night-nightcrawler". Also, this kid is 12 years old? Shouldn't Wolverine be throwing a fit and splitting the X-Men in two over this?

    I thought it was a fun interview and I might check it out.

    I think you have the premise wrong, PetP.

    These kids are not living on Krakoa. They have "regular" lives living in whatever city they're living in and see The X-Men as heroes and want to emulate them in some way.

    Carmen is Gimmick, can "charge up" objects, throw them and see them explode, like Gambit.

    Who Daycrawler and Marvel-Boy are is obvious.

    The leader will be called Cyclops Lass and the flying dude is Cherub
