    Depends.

    I think he is a competent writer, he could probably come up with some pretty interesting stories for the X-Men. However, if he writes them like he writes the Avengers (bloated overarching concepts with bare minimum characterization) I'd rather he didn't.

    This. No so much the characterization, but the overarching concepts part. He's taken it to a new level with New Avengers.

    If he was to take over X-Men we'd probably see him weave a tale involving the Starjammers, Brood, Acanti, and Shi'ar. It'd last for 30+ issues and the characterization wouldn't really happen.

    no, I don't want the X-Books to be boring. Let's keep Bendis using Mystique as a crazy troll who sleeps with people pretending to be other people

    I would welcome him with open arms and hope he would inject some heart into the stories like he did with FF.
    His New Mutants story with lovely Walta is one of my favourites.

    I would drop all X-books at that point.

    I agree with the above.
    I loved his work on SW, FF, EoW, SHIELD...and while NA started off great...I have quite lost all but the most minimum of interest.

    So no...No to Hickman on X-Men.

    No thank you. Put him on Guardians of the Galaxy and Nova or something.

    30 issues? We could only be so lucky. Breevoort said his Avengers deal will only be starting the third act in September after 60+ issues of Avengers/New Avengers/Infinity. It'll probably be 100 by the time it's done. Amazingly, Hickman doesn't seem to be under any sales pressure, despite the lackluster results.

    Yeah, Avengers isn't the only thing that needs to be boring.

    i think i read somehwere that hickman will be giving some characterizations in probably the third act.

    i also thought i heard or read good things on his run.

    also with any luck, do you think he'll bring the fantstic four magic in his x-books and guardians of the galaxy and even richard rider/nova?
