    I guess the X-Men are truly over their Krakoa era. At least White gets time to end his time on the books, too.
    Hasn't Brevoort had less than flattering things to say about the X-Men over the years? Or was that only when people compared X-Men to his Avengers?

    But the biggest questions...
    1) Will we go back to the X-Mansion? (This would feel like regression.)
    2) Will we have to wait for the new era to get Uncanny X-Men back? (Definitely necessary!)

    I'm guessing they'll want to make the post-Krakoa era more new reader friendly

    X-men is least interesting when its a straight super hero book. Its sci fi and social commentary are what make it unique.

    That's okies. As per Brevoort it's still a long ways away from that new era so...I'm glad we get more time to be with Krakoa until the change-over.

    No problem with me. The X-office and it's non-diverse line up has been in need of a shakeup for a while now. When an accomplished writer with a great handle on characters like Kelly Thompson comes out and says she wasn't allowed to write anything X-related then you really have to question why that is.

    While I'm not a hater of the Krakoa era personally it's also undeniable the franchise has drifted heavily from its roots and from what most people have in mind when they hear X-Men.

    While the actual behind the scenes events will always be a mystery to us, I assume this move is supposed to correct some of these things and that always has to start at the top. And whose better for that then someone with a ton of experience under his belt?

    Not a coincidence this will likely take affect around when the X-Men start taking prominence in Marvel Studios

    Funny, I've been reading Tom Brevoort's Substack newsletter for a few months now and have been enjoying his candor, his behind-the-scenes stuff, the way he interacts with fans... all the while thinking he's the best editor working at Marvel and how cool it would be if he became line editor of the X-books one day.

    To say I'm excited about him coming onboard would be an understatement. The length of his tenure at Marvel despite the number of purges and bosses they went through over the last couple of decades, the quality and diversity of the books he worked on, the high-profile creative teams he picked for the Avengers from day 1... the list of his accomplishments is truly impressive and I for one can't wait to see what he does with the X-Men.

    This is spot on. Make no mistake, the Senior VP of Publishing coming onboard the X-books is a huge deal and a clear sign priorities are being realigned as Marvel prepares to make the most of the X-Men brand.

    I was looking forward to reading your take on all of this. Thank you, friend!

    If he heads the Avengers fiefdom, has there been anything for the Young Avengers? Avengers Academy?

    It's interesting how Brevoort replied to a reader's question about him possibly taking over the X-Men line just towards the end of July... that last mention of Jordan White makes me think this was a pretty sudden change if White was brainstorming plans for the future of the X-Men.

    Source: https://tombrevoort.substack.com/p/69-sixty-nine-dudes

    Tom, it seems to me from the outside looking in that you can go one of two ways as a Marvel editor: toward the ďMarvel heroesĒ (the Avengers, etc.), or the X-Men. Is that true to any extent? If so, do you recall when you made ďthe choiceĒ? Did you? And do you have an idea of what YOUR X-Men book would be? At least before the Krakoan age? Or even now?

    I donít really think itís as simple as all that, Nick. For one thing, there are definitely other camps than just Avengers or X-Men. Spider-Man is a big one, as are licensed properties such as the Star Wars titles. And people do bounce around. Nick Lowe, who has been the Spidey editor for many years was working on X-Men titles before that. And Jordan White, the current X-Men editor, did much of his work before that on Star Wars books. And thatís to say nothing of people like Wil Moss, who worked on characters such as Superman and the Flash, whoever they are, before taking on Thor and the Hulk. In terms of what my X-MEN book might look like, I think there are multiple answers to that. As a reader, I came in on the Chris Claremont/Dave Cockrum/John Byrne era, so thatís always the X-Men material that speaks the most directly to me. But Iím also well aware that there have been forty years of stories since then, with the introduction and inclusions of many, many characters into that line since then. So I donít think Iíd be simply trying to re-create the feel and flavor of that old run, not as the only thing at least. I did spend an hour or so one day recently bouncing ideas around with Jordan White as a springboard as he began to work out his future plans for the X-Titles, and that implied some notions as to how I might go about structuring that line of books myself if I were ever to take it over. Not that Iím going to reveal any of that here. And honestly, if such a thing happened, by the time that it did, the ball would be elsewhere on the playing field and Iíd need to begin my thinking from scratch again.
