the editors missed out by not having an X-Factor/ X-Force crossover

Word. I thought for sure they'd use UA as well... Didnt have to be a crossover because Lord knows how far Remender's book was trailing behind. They could have easily had them guest star for arc, if nothing else, in an attempt to boost sales. Same with Cyke and Wolvie's X-Men teams. I thought the premise left it open for several books to crossover logically. But most definitely X-Force seeing as they were so anti-establishment and X-Factor's first mission involved what X-Force did on a monthly basis.

G. Willow Wilson X-Position

CBR News: First off, as with any incoming writer, fans want to know if you have any plans to use any characters outside of the core X-Men team? Dani Moonstar, Firestar, Frenzy, Polaris, Danger, Emma Frost, Blink -- there are a lot of X-Men that people want to see in "The Burning World."

G. Willow Wilson: This arc is pretty tightly focused on the central five characters of the current roster, since there's a lot of character drama involved -- however! Beast does have a supporting role, and Gambit -- one of my all time favorite X-people -- has a brief cameo.

Soooo - he's not skeezy anymore? Just wondering.  Now he's one of an all time favorite for her?  Damage control from the last time or do you think its genuine.

I am guessing Damage control my self.
Gambit: "Psychologist?"
Brother Voodoo: "In out brief time together, I've seen evidence of a personality type that is narcissistic, kletomaniacal, pathological, adrenaline-addicted, anti-athority, and given to reckless suicidal tendencies. No offense to you, Remy. But a super hero that moonlights as a thief? Dude...you have issues!"

I thought that too.  Wonder if the letter I sent helped.  LOL

She is getting another book after her four issue arc.

How long do you plan on staying on the book? Please let it be for a while!

Aww! Only four issues. But then I move on to a brand new book that I can't talk about except to say that if you like this particular X-Team, you will like the new book. And if you don't like this particular X-Team, you will like the new book anyway.

her new book is probably an all female superhero team which would be cool if done right

Thats fine if that is what she wants to write, but it didn't get me interested when Wood started this book and I'm not going to buy a different all woman book just because a woman writer is writing it.

Interview with Spurrier (not an X-position but I'll put it here anyway)

Si acknowledges some stuff about today's market
Quote
I believe that in order for the important parts of a story to really have meaning the only thing that truly matters is that it ends. "Happy" or "sad" doesn't come into it.

That's obviously problematic when it comes to ongoing series. My approach therefore is always to construct an interlinked chain of modular stories, each with its own preoccupations and conclusions, which themselves should form the beats of a wider macro tale.

In today's climate one can realistically expect a mid-tier series to last somewhere between 10 and 24 episodes before a relaunch, change-up, paradigm-shift or whatever-it-may be (and that's a phenomenon I'm all in favor of, by the way, for some of the same reasons as the above waffle about endings). Hence it's a smart strategy to go into each gig with ideas for a good half-dozen modular stories, knowing that you probably won't end up using them all

Someone should send this to PAD  :P

Hmm... Need new books to read. I'll read the Gambit issues of Storm. I was looking at Uncanny Inhumans. Won't touch anything Bendis is writing. Can't stand his style. So sad I can't look at any of the current X-Men books and be interested.
