"And...who are you, bub?"
"Ey I'm Teen Wolverine! Wanna get some maple syrup waffles an' play some Hockey eh?"
"...how many more of me is there?"
"You should see Grade School Wolverine!"
Keep the toddler Wolverine and younger away from the beers.
All of the young Wolverine clones — including Gabby — get together to form the WolverTeens.
...Seriously, though, I would read that shit so much. In fact, I want to write it for Marvel now.
They'd be the best at what they do, while not being very nice about it.
....that'd make a nice tag line actually. I think this could actually work.
And what they do is...not clean their room! Or do the dishes when they're told! And leave their dirty socks everywhere!
Seriously, Laura could be their teacher/caretaker and Gabby would be the "big sister" and I want to write this so much now.

X-Statix returns, although in what form I don't know.
Hopefully, this will mean a lot more X-Books in the wake of Hickman's two mini-series.
FUCK YEAH X-STATIX! Not only was the original great, but that means we'll be once again showing mutants with occupations that are not "X-person" or "terrified refugee"... here's hoping.
I'm genuinely surprised there's not more X-Men/ My Hero Academa crossover fanfics. Like, I'm sure they're out there, but I look at the fanfic recs for MHA and there's not one X-Men crossover there — just a whole bunch from Reborn!, which I've never seen.
It's weird, because I've always thought you can fit MHA into regular Marvel continuity with little trouble — you could make it a rare good future where the entire Mutant population isn't slaughtered/ enslaved/ made into fascists/ some combination of two or all of the above.
FUCKING X-STATIX FUCK YES!
Starting to re-read that series, holy shit it's wild, so good.
I’d wager the MHA audience skews younger, whereas a sizeable portion of X-Men fans either have been reading for decades or jumped onboard with the movies... which started almost two decades ago.
Plus there's the inherent American Comics vs Japanese Comics rivalry.
... not sure if I've heard that one before. I mean, not all manga fans like comics and vice versa but that imo doesnt constitute a "rivalry."
But Wolverine is almost certainly a fan of MHA regardless.

Honestly, we have Frank Miller and Chris Claremont to thank for Wolverine’s weebiness.
Wolverine definitely imported Yakuza Ishin.
Giant Sized X-Statix #1.
And, unfortunately, X-23 is in May.

I'd say I want Edie and Guy to finally get a happy ending, but that's arguably missing the point of the series.
It's not even Edie — the promo text asks "Who is the New U-Go Girl?"
Also, I'm pretty sure all those other characters died in the last issue of X-Statix, too, so I'm not sure how they are back. Although Dead Girl being there is a good indication.
Orphan, Dead Girl, and Vivisector died in the last issue. Drop was already back, and I see a new female Phat and another character who looks completely new.
Hi Joseph. Bye Joseph.
So, does Rosenberg just want us all to forget that he had Karma literally use Illyana as a murder weapon? Because it seems like Rosenberg wants us all to forget that. What with Illyana being the one delivering the "all sins are forgiven" speech, instead of deliveringan "I am so close to killing you" speech. Which is the speech she should have delivered, given, again, Karma used her as a murder weapon. Karma took control of Illyana's mind and forced her to commit murder, that doesn't seem like the kind of thing that Illyana would forgive easily, or like the kind of thing she should forgive easily. It actually strikes me as the kind of thing that should create a lot of tension on the team, leave everyone doubting how much they can trust her, even leave Karma wondering how much she can trust herself. It's the kind of thing that should create a lot of great drama.
But nope, "all sins are forgiven," because why bother with the soap opera shit that is central to why people love the X-Men in the first place, right?
Pretty much. As much as some people deride Soap, it's one of the reasons why X-Men got big in the first place and why it works. I've actually been reading Excalibur lately and as melodramatic as it can be at times, it still does a fantastic job of building relationships and getting you invested in the characters. Not all books need to be Soapy nor should they, but X-Men wouldn't be the same without it.

The finale to Rosenberg's run in coming in July. I assume the book will then be relaunched with a new creative team after Hickman's Powers of X and House of X is done.
God, I hope they bring in the writers of "Age of X-Man" to write main universe X-books.
At an end your rule is, Rosenberg. And not short enough it was!
It looks like X-Force is also ending and, with X-23 over and Mr and Mrs X over, it looks like they are primed for Hickman's run and then a subsequent relaunch of books.
Let me guess relaunch with more grimdark bullshit and deaths to make it seem "dramatic" like the "gold old days". >_>
