    I absolutely do. IIRC the first issue I bought on my own (after spending several years relying on my afterschool program's monthly supply of X-Men) was UXM #269 - Rogue, Magneto, Jim Lee and the Savage Land.

    Oh lord. No. I don't care about sliding time, AFAIC Utopia lasted 2-3 years.

    Not to sound cold but any mutant that died before the nineties X-Men team can be left dead. There are practically no interesting mutant that wasn't an X-Men or heavily associated with them worth bringing back. I do not want random morlocks or some mutant who's powers are to add an extra minute of flavor to chewed bubblegum brought back

    Adam X is a terrible character with the potential of being a great joke character

    I have never read anything by Jonathan Hickman that I either enjoyed or found to be worthwhile, and I wish he wasn't writing X-Books.

    House of X / Powers of X is stupid.

    Don't fight for your equality...run away to the mutant island of segregation.

    But, but it's always gone so well in the past! Look at how well it went for all those mutants on Genosha! Or in the Morlock tunnels!

    If only there was some catchy phrase for when you 'concentrate' all the undesirable folk into one place, a sort of 'camp...'

    Krakoa will fall not from outside, human actions, but by internal mutant conflicts.

    If they wanted to get away...what about Lila Cheney's Dyson Sphere?

    Yea I’m personally not a fan of this direction of having the X-Men basically act like a bunch of cult members and actively support and be proud of something that is literally a betrayal of everything they’ve ever fought for. For the first time ever, I actually find myself rooting against the X-Men and anticipate the day this all comes crashing down and hope that at least some of the X-Men remember who they are by then.

    I think that it will fall by the ego, like Magneto saying " you have new gods now"

    That is a given. I would like that to be honest. for them to fail for pure hubris. To show the mutants are no better than humans

    They still fight for equality...difference is that they don't base their lives on hoping some KKK member sees the light, and they, like any minority group these days, don't care about being a model minority anymore. They have the right to exist regardless of what their behavior or opinions are. And now humans can't annihilate them with a few big robots anymore.

    Ultimately, most of them want to live in harmony and peace with humans- but Hickman changed mutants to the scrappy underdog backed to a corner to the inevitable juggernaut of history.

    But of course, maybe it would be better if they just moved to the mansion again to play baseball.

    I don't think a mutant nation of the size and power of krakoa could work as long term development for the franchice. I feel like it makes our characters somewhat less relatable and less human to see them act like a total different culture.

    A mutant nation could work but not for our main characters.

    Agreed. Currently tinkering with a Grand Design headfanon where Magneto succeeds making a mutant nation in the Savage Land back in the 90s. Magneto’s Dream needed to be a success for a longer period than Genosha provided.
