    True, but IIRC, it was criticized as much as the current run when it was coming out.

    The only reason Genesis parlayed with Annihilation is because Isca begged her to, which happened after her “talk” with White Sword. If anything, she probably told him he was weak for keeping his enslaved Champions stuck in a constant, torturous life-and-death cycle.

    This isn’t some monsters-of-the-week invasion, this is like living in the middle of a never-ending Annihilation Wave. If Krakoa lost, none of Earth’s heroes would’ve been able to stop Amenth (something we saw played out in Saturnyne’s vision).

    Not only would that be hypocritical, she aint got no place to stand, cause he beat her and she's totally about "Might makes right."

    New Mutants sales have been very low at #435, the lowest sales of all X-titles.

    I hope that somebody at Marvel finally wakes up and change the writing chore of New Mutants to a new writer such as Zeb Wells.

    That's the July issue selling a couple hundred more copies in August. There was no new New Mutants issue in August. Issue 20 was July, issue 21 was September.

    Shouldn't you have bothered to find out if this was actually legit before posting this?

    Because this sort of stuff really isn't and hasn't been for a very,very,very long time.

    The end of his run was maybe the best part, with Illyana bringing back Legion the god mutant. Wells only wrote until issue 21. Are you maybe thinking about the last part of that New Mutants run (which was... not very good)?

    That volume of New Mutants was great. Wells was a good fit for the team and I only wish it had better art. The start did but I wasnt a fan of Leonard Kirk

    The Zeb Wells run, specifically the final issues, were the conclusion of a 30-year character arc that began in 1982. Everything Illyana had suffered in her life stemmed from the Elder Gods and the attempts to release them. After fighting them as a sorceress for so long, she chose to deal with the threat once and for all as a mutant. Wells is on record as saying that his goal was to give her closure, and in that he succeeded. Fall/Rise of the New Mutants and Quest for Magik combined are the story the original Inferno should have been,

    Let's see what the sales figure for issue 21 will be, when compared to the rest of the X-titles.

    Zeb Wells is busy with Spider-man, And I doubt he'll want to go back to New Mutants.
    Vita Ayala's run is great, but it's a shame Marvel screw with the publishing so much.
    If the sales are low, then it shows the importance of renumbering, if Ayala's run started with a #1, then maybe it may have fared better, with it not being bogged down by the weight of Brisson's And Hickman's runs.

    I'm hoping Ayala Returns to New Mutants after the Wolverine event

    Yes, that was great but the quality of the stories went downhill after he left.
