Ultimate Xmen 13-14 written by Chuck Austen - do you remember why he did the fill in for the book, because the writer of Ultimate Xmen didn't like Gambit. Stated as much in interviews and all of that, this is the stuff that really beats on a fanbase.
Such a pervasive lack of professionalism in the X-Office. This is EXACTLY why I gave up on reading the new books several years ago. You shouldn't have to like a character in order to write them and give them a fair portrayal. Agatha Christie didn't like Poirot. Doyle hated Sherlock Holmes toward the end. Both writers put their own personal feelings aside and continued writing the characters because they realized that it was about their readers and not their egos.


X-writers don't seem to understand that they are not writing fanfiction. They are writing comic books that people PAY good money to read.

Anybody see this? Notice how the author never actually gives us a REASON why Gambit shouldn't get a Disney+ series? Also, while I agree with Storm, I think it's ridiculous to say that Professor Xavier isn't interesting enough to have a series. I mean, I don't think I'd want one. But that is mostly because I think his backstory should be explored and alluded to in the main movies. But certainly not because he isn't interesting.

Enough with baby-dragon-boy nonsense! Stop trying to make it happen - it's not going to happen. No one cares!


A few thoughts...

 I have no idea where this is headed except we will probably all eventually be wearing burqas and making pleasing hums at each other to avoid anyone seeing or hearing something that might offend them.



LOL pleasing hums!
Rogue being flung vagina-first at the first male that pops up on her radar isn't how I'd define "romance," but Marvel must be using a different dictionary than me.- NicoPony

He literally cut/paste the sentences from the article 2-3 weeks ago about why gambit shouldn’t get a movie. Which is why that writer works as a shill writing for a fanboy site and not working for Disney itself. at this point, as a fan, I persist just to spite this writer and everyone like him. 


But yes, Punisher, sure. Guns/revenge porn. Let’s do that some more.

^I forgot to put that in my original comment. Apparently we haven't had enough Punisher. Never mind the fact that his entire schtick has been done 6 million times by characters who aren't even in the Marvel universe. The guy has already had 3 movies. And if you ask me, that is 3 too many.

The creative team could’ve gone with using the magical heritage drawn from Krakoas multicultural mutant diaspora. Instead she puts people of Cajun/Creole, Mexican, and Asian descent into Union Jack costumes and hammers home the same tired Eurocentric concepts of magic, druids, dragons, swords. Snore. I’ve watched all five-million episodes of Elena of Avalor several times now. Pretty sure Central and South Americans have their own magic.

Pandering and baiting are the problems, and have been for ages. Like by insinuating a throuple involving Wolverine/Cyclops/Jean with zero considerations for character growth and history, and then not bothering to address the complexities of a polyamorous relationship is pandering. If they’re trying to sell it as recognition of a kind of relationship outside of the heteronormative, then they are doing it wrong. Right now it comes across as some straight dude’s idea he had about Logan and Scott making Jean the Eiffel Tower. Then they bait a queer audience with the insinuation of a lesbian relationship, then make the audience pay for 20 issues worth of comics just to see them dance together. Or give the gay audience a book and immediately cancel it after getting recognized for their attempt. Then again, if you’re waiting for that all-female girl power team or for a POC to have a major role in the X-books, well you can have that…but only kinda because the same five white dudes (plus Emma Frost) are still headlining all the comics and calling all the shots. All attempts so far at being ”woke”, just more pandering and baiting, is worse when you do it under the guise of being inclusive. Lies, I tell you! it’s all lies!



And then they turn it around on those who call them out on all of this and say they're the insensitive bigots and blah, blah, blah. No... Your writing just sucks and all you do is peddle Regressive crap with a very thin "Progressive!" veneer slapped onto it in the hopes of diverting attention away from your ignorance.

Let's face it, we are on a Gambit site here and he is our favorite character and it sucks how he gets treated but, At this point in the comics almost all the characters are being treated poorly and are written out of character and such. Comics are in bad shape it seems and doesn't look to be getting better anytime soon.

Wow, you all have been busy while my back was turned haha
The discussion is making me glad of my choice to peace out of comics after the third or so issue of Excalibur
Nobody was getting a fair shake in that book and, honestly, came off like there was meddling because I can't fathom someone wanting to tell that story. Can you imagine that being part of your legacy? Ah, well, guess actors phone it in for a paycheck too

I wanted to hate Krakoa…but I don’t. I’m good with characters getting a fresh start or reset. I just wish Gambit was included. Maybe that’s why I’m so butthurt about it. hopefully after Inferno. I remain cautiously optimistic. If gambit ends up getting dead, we could have Sinister reveal Gambit’s been a clone since after X-Factor and the real one’s been in deep freeze for the last decade. I’d be okay with that.  ;D


I peaced out of the fandom seven years ago bc I wasn’t in a headspace where I could withstand any more negativity. After this s***ty past year, I reached for a big heaping bowl of comforting nostalgia. Re-read all of Asmus’ books, Mr & Mrs X, and X-Factor and thought: why didn’t I enjoy the hell out of this before? Oh yeah, because the internet told me not to. Lol.


I am so glad we have moved the X-line away from Days of Future Past/Mutant Death Camps/Dire Apocalyptic Visions. Being treated to eons of despair, no wonder X-fans are such a sad bunch. So yeah, mutants  having a new society and then enjoying a big dress up party, I am there for it. I am going to read the hell out of that s***. 


I still heavily drink the Haterade for Magneto though. That hasn’t changed. Still being sold as the be-all-end-all writers’ pet Patron Saint of Mutantkind endured since Legacy days. I ain’t buying it. Did you know, in the Pride issue it turns out Magneto was an ally to gay mutants everywhere since before the word ‘ally’ existed? He is also nominated for Father of the Year, all while guiding his people to salvation like the Moses of Mutants. He is just so amazing in every way. I can’t wait til women’s history month when they put out A Very Special Episode about how Magneto was historically a vocal supporter of the ERA, and is solidly behind reproductive rights. Oh, wait, no…never mind, he’s mansplaining something to Lorna again. Give him an hour or so. I hope he is martyred in Trial of Magneto and he can finally be canonized as a saint, his corpse beatified and have him ascend to heaven. Good bye. Gambit is wondering where he can set up the guillotine for the trial.


if you’re really really into nostalgia Liefeld is getting a shot with his favorite characters, so if you’re into grimacing, big guns, gutting people with swords, there is that. Little something for everyone, including the ppl who hate krakoa.

I don’t hate krakoa, but I don’t really like it either. I was more than done with the extinction stories, so change of pace isn’t bad. Don’t like the whole ‘humans are supposed to go extinct and mutants are unquestioned next step in evolution (because that’s never been a science thing, the ‘next step in evolution) and the magic plants… how do mutants have so much more power/control now? Magic plants, that make medicine and food and houses and computers and more land and they teleport too…
