Xmen Relaunch!
« on: May 14, 2019, 03:50:37 PM »
I haven't read the whole article yet ... the headline is quite impressive.

Writer Jonathan Hickman, who takes over the X-Men franchise with July's House of X #1 and Powers of X #1, says that the "entire line" of X-Men comic books will be canceled to coincide with the launch of the two biweekly titles.

Just skimming through this, it sounds like no Gambit in comics until potentially September.

“We needed to sell the idea that this is what we’re going to be doing for the next few years. So if you want to read X-Men books during the run from late-July through September, House of X and Powers of X are the only new X-books available and everything that’s going to follow is based on them,” he continued. “We wanted to be clear to the fans, to the stores, and just as importantly, to the creators who are going to be staffing these books in the future. We wanted the message to be very clear: This is a whole new era for the X-Men. This is what we’re doing now. And so, POX and HOX is how we’re starting. It’s a solid plan, I think.”
This has been needed. Let the history go and create anew ... or so I think.

We know that Gambit and Rogue will be on team together. And I am almost sure that KT will continue to write them.

Relaunch or reboot or whatever is the opportunity to start fresh and pick a new direction and that won't happen if the writer doesn't change, she is already set in her style and views. New would be better. IMO.

I think HiX-Men will be great for X-Men but I don't expect anything good for Gambit, really.


He is not even on big teaser with 3 Wolverines. Not even 1 version of him.


We know he will be in a book with Rogue. KT will have some new project.
That is why I am sure that she will continue to write Gambit and Rogue in some new sattelite X book.


I am sure that Gambit and Rogue will be as far from flagship as possible.

This is not a bad thing. Whether G and R stayed married, again ... whatever .... what is needed is a different perspective.

Yes, we don't know. She can't say anything and must be vague and all that but for me, someone who has not enjoyed the MMX book. I hold out hope for a different view is all.

Apparently this needs FURTHER clarification as I see people screencapping it & using it in arguments. When I say I'm not writing the books - I was referring to HOX & POX. As to everything else I cannot comment either way - those are PR Announcements that Marvel will be handling!

Thats too bad. The problem with the book is story telling. And to have the same writer whose views will not have changed handle these characters is not a good idea. And it won't sell any better with the relaunch than its selling now. IMO, of course.

Apologies that this isn't sugary sweet with toppings and things. Or positive up the whazoo. If you enjoy this style, good. Buy more than one copy. :) <<-- not joking on that.
