    Spreading them into other books so they can eventually get rid of them.

    But this is... interesting. Not like I was buying any X-Men books outside of Deadpool/Gambit anyway. I hope Ultimates doesnt get canceled, or I'm going to be due for another comic book hiatus.
    As one black person to another...black people can hang out without other races around.

    Nobody says shit when Thor, Captain (Steve) America and Tony go out for drinks. Just saying,
    I've seen your end and it starts with you challenging me.

    Myself and a large chunk of the community believe Marvel is cutting off their nose to spite their face... The books at this point serve as nothing more than advertising for Disney/Marvel. Us, the readers fuel hype and provide information for those that known nothing about the lore and basis of the movies they produce. It's theorized that Disney believes if they take the X-Men (a Fox owned movie franchise) out of the books, their popularity will eventually nose dive as there will be no one left talking about them, except in the past tense. Interest in the Fox movies will wain. Fox will have no more comics to base their movies on and eventually lose their fandom and steam forcing them to come back to the negotiating table, or hand over the X-Men rights altogether (possibly for money). This is a long ball approach and will take years to work, if ever.

    Who? The Blue eye brigade? (what I called them when they had Havok too) I say $#%^ all the time about that... The only reason it's taken this long for Black Panther to be introduced (cinematically) is because Marvel wasnt sure if they could make money off of a black character headlining a MCU movie. That's been talked about for a while now, and business wise, when you're talking about millions or billions of dollars... it makes sense. It'd be like opening a GAP down on Martin Luther King BLVD (if you understand, you understand). Good luck with that. Can say the same about Captain Marvel. Marvel has gotten to the point where they know they can sell anything as long as they have that Marvel logo on it. Guardian's proved that and opened the floodgates for more "risky" endeavors.

    This is... distressing. I guess it's finally happened.

    Marvel is pushing so much crap that it is even hard to believe it is true.

    Seriously though... So Marvel is suspending all X-Books [for the duration of Death of X]?
    Way to try to force readers to pick up the 'Inhumans Win!' vehicle miniseries.

    When Death of Wolverine was announced, we thought it would be the 4-miniseries and only that, but then there was Logan's Legacy, that book with the Weapon X people, and Wolverines. That was all announced later.

    We're probably gonna get some news about new books next month for November, which lines up with when the X-books launched last year.

    Because they keep trying to get younger people to start the hobby. Someone should remind marvel that their books are $4-5 and issue and no kid is going to spend that much money on one.

    Honestly, after all the fake outs with Cap and Iron Man and what not. People should really at the very least try to be patient. Yes, they want to feed your angst and anger, cause let's face it it has worked wonders for them. But seriously, why instant panic mode when all these examples being so recent

    Lol this gets said everytime. I'm sure there will be something but there's no reason to believe they're interested in the franchise

    They're probably going to come back after the end of Death of X.

    but then death of x is more than the death of cyclops

    it may be that almost all the mutants die, as seen in the image and Cyclops do something to restore but only few remember it....
