    On an unrelated note, do you all think they needed to relaunch the title for this?
    No, but Marvel never misses an opportunity to make a #1 that sells a lot.

    I’m a big fan of the line up. I do hope we get some new costumes. Also have Sunfire and Laura ever interacted before? I’m excited for that dynamic.

    Because they need better sales

    I’m also very excited that Duggan said “in the inaugural year” about this team. I really dig the idea of a rotating cast.

    Hate that it took so long that its no longer as “major” but we finally have a Black male and an Asian male on the leading team, it has been a while since we’ve seen that. I hope they each receive the development they need to elevate them the way Magik, X-23 etc have been elevated to A List in recent years.

    What I’d really love to see is Synch get experience leading so he can eventually become a candidate in future “who besides Scott and Ororo are the go-to leaders” polls. I got big headcanon plans for Ev. He’s surrounded by experienced leaders so I see that as his next evolution.
    Boop! Krakoa forever!

    Do you think Marvel views the HiXmen and assorted X titles under the HiXmen line as underperforming?

    I haven’t dropped it, yet. I thought House of X, and Powers of X, were interesting, though I didn’t love them.

    I loved Hickman’s portrayal of Nimrod. He didn’t even seem like that bad a chap.

    It was a good launch for all the series.

    X of Swords basically stunk. Sorry, fellow X fans, it did.

    X-Men and New Mutants have had their moments, but overall I find myself struggling to recognize these characters, which makes me think Hickman is struggling to write and basically edit them.

    YES, the line is underperforming. How much is harder to know, but on charts is constantly losing to many books. Mrvel didn't hired Hickman to do Bendis or Rosenberg numbers

    Nimrod is really bad, just because he is cute doesn't mean he is not a mass murder.

    At thispoint I'm just looking how much damage he is doing to these characters

    I apologize if this was already answered, but what is the current status of Rogue's powers? Did she lose the Marvel/Wonder Man powers and does she still drain them by touch, and in the process get their memories and harm them?

    I’m think Remy and Magneto would want to know this, too, LOL!!!

    Such a wasted opportunity to develop a blank canvass like Tempo (a minority with unique & interesting powers, just so the fandom giving Lorna another millionth chance to make her interesting. It’s unfortunate, hopefully they will at least add her in as well

    I like it but I do hope they are saving room for one more low profile character.

    Cyclops and Jean make sense as the leads obviously.

    Wolverine and Synch make sense cause of their storyline.

    Polaris won the fan vote.

    So Sunfire and Rogue are the surprising ones to me. Rogue seems a bit redundant in there with Polaris and Jean already being part of the team, but Duggan did write her really well in Uncanny Avengers. Duggan probably got to pick one character and chose her. This I great news for Rogue fans. Sunfire seems a bit odd too but there's lots of history to explore there and he is a minority.

    For some reason, I think Tempo might be really good on this team. I like the idea of Iceman being on here too for queer rep but I think it should be given to a more minor character. Plus Duggan is writing him anyway and might have him guest start on here anyway. Maybe Anole?

    Well, I’m sticking with Dawn of X, for now, despite my fears about what it’s doing to some of my favorite Marvel characters, and despite my not necessarily rooting for the X teams. So, some people such as myself are sticking with the books.

    Also, Nimrod as portrayed by Hickman is beyond cute. Nimrod “the Lesser” is hysterical!

    Is Nimrod really a bad guy in Dawn of X?

    We’re talking about Xavier and his various teams having made peace not just with a maniac like Robert Shaw, but real terrorists, serial and mass murderers, like Magneto, Sabretooth, Mystique, and Mr. Sinister. Then there’s the genocidal, indeed omnicidal would-be tyrant Apocalypse, and his demon children.

    Like, Kang would be a nicer ally than Apocalypse. Kang wouldn’t have brought back a bunch of literal demons from an underworld, like Apocalypse did. And the mutants are all together, quite literally running breeding programs to resurrect and hatch all the mutants, giving Apocalypse’s demon children who hate humanity a nice home.

    How is that any better than joining a spaceborne, technological, collective consciousness that preserves humanity and human cultures? Remember that while Nimrod was busy being, well, busy, Moira and her mutant allies including Apocalypse conducted a mass-casualty terrorist attack on a religious service, on a temple and a “baptism.” And Nimrod the Lesser is a bad guy? I’ll play along and read along, but I’m not sure I buy it. Heck, the post-humans, transhumans, whatever you want to call them, even arranged for the mutants to live past humanity’s transhuman communion with universal consciousness and singularity. Were the mutants even grateful? No, they decide to destroy the future of humanity, while they’re busy hatching mutant clones of dead people produced by 5 different people, when not busy importing demons to the Earth.

    Are we really sure Nimrod’s the baddie? Because I’m not.

    Not so sure about Synch, I'll have to re-read the Children of the Vault issues. Fans were saying that they wanted a more diverse team, I would have had Iceman (gay) over Sunfire (japanese) and is Synch there because he is black or because he is Wolverines boyfriend ?.
    Anyways its a very powerful team.
    I enjoy anything Marvel cosmic, especially Thanos or Dark Phoenix related, loved the original Uncanny Avengers series.

    (Marvel/DC fan for 42+ years)
