    I have very biased opinions and i like to voice for the things i like but I'm not trying to deppreciate other things. The line is thin and blur sometimes.

    the way Xavier says “Jean...what a visceral memory. Weird. I remember being so pissed for the first like six episodes where Jean does nothing except stand behind Xavier’s wheelchair

    Chuck Austen's run isn't as bad as people say

    Also I like Scott Lobdell as a writer.

    And Andy and Adam Kubert are very underrated x-men artists. They kinda get overshadowed my Jim Lee, but I honestly like their work more.

    (Yes I know that Lobdell and Kuberts were responsible for AOA/Onslaught, but their other comic work was great, Phalanx, Legion, Gen X, etc)

    I preferred Asian-body-swapped Psylocke, but they never did a good story with it as far as I can remember. I liked how it happened in the Ultimate Universe: when Betsy is possessed by Xavier's evil son, her body is killed but her mind takes over and inhabits the comatose body of an Asian girl nearby. Doing a body swap in this way creates a lot of story potential: the ethical issues of effectively erasing another consciousness, fear of dying and the desperation to cheat death, drama with the loved ones of the new body you're inhabiting, adjustment to a body that isn't your own, where all of your instincts would be wrong, etc.

    I get the controversy over the change in ethnicity, but I still think the body swap dynamic is interesting.

    X-Men peaked with Claremont.
    That is the land of lost content, I see it shining plain, the happy highways where I went and cannot come again.

    Contrary-wise, as long tenured as Claremont was his writing has never been anything amazingly special.

    The Hickman hype is way overblown. This is a great story so far but I enjoyed X Man Gold by Guggenheim more and think that is better. I’m getting hate for thinking this. But I’m sorry... I think X Books have been great for a long time. This narrative that they have been bad for 20 years is absolute garbage.

    X-Men peaked with Lee/Kirby. As is the destiny of all things.

    I don't know where X-men peaked but I enjoyed reading X-men comics when I was a child with Claremont's run. I sometimes enjoy reading X-men comics even now. But I don't enjoy Hickman run.
    It's just a matter of pleasure.
    If I offended you, be assured that it wasn't my intention. English is not my first language.

    I think the X-men line in the '90s was the only terrible thing about the '90s.

    It's a minority opinion, but I have seen others who agree things were over-hyped, or that it's good but not as good as others make it out to be.

    For now, I haven't been blown away. But I don't fault anyone on that. My taste has always been specific and in the minority. POX 1 + HOX 2 hasn't included any characters I care about or like, so last 2 weeks have been slow as Age of X for me. I liked seeing Krakoa & current X-Men in HOX 1. But it doesn't seem like we'll get back to that for another two weeks. Maybe POX 2 will be good since we see some current characters on the cover, but I am wary given 3 of the cast members. lol

    Otherwise, Bunn's Uncanny still remains unmatched as far as X-runs I loved.

    i'm interested where Hickman is going, but i'm cautious. these changes are really easy to screw up.

    Gonna say I was liking and enjoying X-men red a lot more.

    I might of said this early on in the thread but I can’t remember. Ultimate X-Men is better than 90% of all 616 X-Men runs.
    You brought back Wolverine

    I like what Marvels doing with him, but I rarely see praise for the guy. Granted the stuff with him and Marvel Girl is rather dull, but beyond that he has a lot going for him.
