Brett's probably gonna ask a bunch of Gambit questions to start off, so I say let it rip, but not too hard.

*chuckles* we can ask that it probably won't be answered or given to PAD.  I've noticed that Brett White is not using the CBR forum to get questions either or at least not so far.

ask him if he was an editor and had to choose between ending All New X-Men and Saving it, What kind of Sandwich would he make?
or
why does Bendis suck so much ?, who pays him? why is he allowed to write X-Books?

To be honest, that was a waste of a question. Writers have been saying "Etienne" off and on for a while. Not like he broke new ground there and if it wasnt obvious before, hes not the biggest Gambit fan, so I wouldnt have expected any "deep" involved answer. The follow up question was also what I expected from such a impertinent man. Though a lot more frank than I would have guessed.

I need to admit that after X-Position I thought that my questions were a waste of a question too. Or maybe I was expecting different answer for them.

Really would like to know what is next for Gambit.. X-Factor did not seem to a be a long term project to Marvel. Won't Claremont be free do something with Gambit. Seems like perfect timing with Nightcrawler's solo ending soon.

Besides the answer to character driven stories, most of this X-Position was fluff.  Glad he likes the team or so he says in the last answer.

He isn't wrong on the character driven stuff.  

Not sure if Wolverine in every other issue would have helped or not because by his own look at the book, it would have still been character driven.  And he writes 6 issue arcs.

It read like, he didn't really want to answer much.  I am intrigued with how the art will be handled between the two artists.  But other than that - whatever.  

I'm just disappointed that this book didn't get enough people to read it.

I found it interesting that he admitted that he knew about the cancellation over 6 months ago. It explains the shift in focus. Probably a combination of personal preference and edict which ended up developing Quicksilver (and oddly even Scarlet Witch, all of which is now pointless with with "Mutants No More" crap. It like the left hand had no idea what the right was doing), whom I believe that Marvel thinks will have the same impact on the MCU that he did with Days of Future Past. I doubt it. Two very different takes on the character.

I think you are right Don about change in focus.  Still, he talked about stuff and never got to it to do other things. It's like he gave up, imo with the exception of putting QS where he needed to be.
