I'm wrestling with myself over whether I should let Hickman suck me back in. On the one hand, Hickman has declared his admiration for Morrison's run and said he wants to do something new like him (in fact saying that Morrison's run was the last time the franchise has ever moved forward - a miracle the Disney PR Assassins let him live after saying that in public tongue). He's also an unambiguously A-list writer with a lot of staying power, and is a master at adding new lore, much like Morrison and Remender.

On the other... is it even worth getting attached to this franchise anymore? The table always gets flipped on any progress, it seems like. If you'll allow me a possibly-offensive simile, is it like going back to an abusive spouse at this stage?

There's nothing that needs mending/Just follow my words, they will lead you to the ending.

I don't know what to tell you, but that for the most part, Marvel seems to allow Hickman to finish all the storylines he wants. His Avengers/New Avengers arc went on for three years and then took about another year to finish with Secret Wars.

Now, what happens after, I'm unsure of. Will they pull another Morrison and immediately retcon the biggest reveal? I'm not sure, it all depends on if it's well-received or not.

Sweet Jesus, Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz return for a New Mutants one-shot in September. It's called New Mutants: War Children.

NEW MUTANTS: WAR CHILDREN #1
Writer: Chris Claremont
Art: Bill Sienkiewicz
Cover: Bill Sienkiewicz
STRONG AND FREE! Don’t miss this momentous event as legendary creators CHRIS CLAREMONT and BILL SIENKIEWICZ reunite with Magik, Wolfsbane, Cannonball, Cypher, Mirage, Karma, and Sunspot to share this never before told story of the New Mutants’ past! When Warlock experiences a nightmare, he begins going haywire, and it’s up to his friends to save him! But as Warlock grows more frenzied, they should be worrying about being able to save themselves…and doubly so when Magik’s inner demon, Darkchylde, threatens to break free! Also, a special guest appearance by none other than Kitty Pryde!
Holy crap it looks awesome.

I'm torn. On the one hand, it's Chris Claremont. On the other hand, it's also Bill Freakin' Sienkewicz.

I'm honestly split on whether to pick it up. It's been a long time since Claremont did anything I really enjoyed reading. (Mekanix, I think, would be the only thing I can think of.) His style is just so dated, he's failed to keep up with the times. And yeah yeah, this is a throwback issue, but just the same, it's hard for me to be excited about Claremont.

[up]Normally I'd agree with you, but like you said, it's a throwback issue. So I'm willing to look past that.

He killed somebody like every other issue. The sheer brazenness of it combined with this arc being related to a reality warp storyline makes me think a Snap Back is entirely possible, though that may be too optimistic.

Rosenberg pulls characters out of a hat to kill them off. I'm kidding, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was real.

Hey, when does Jonathan Hickman start writing X-Men?

EDIT: Never mind, it starts next month.

Hey, I guess since Hickman's X-Men is a soft reboot, does that make it a jumping-on point?

So I had a thought:

The Legacy Virus attacked everyone with an X-Gene right?

Well, last I checked don't all humans have the X-Gene? It's just dormant in the vast majority.

...so here's a good bad future story? Someone brings back the Legacy Virus to get rid of mutants...and ends up wiping out normal humans as well because they forget that all humans have the X-Gene, or assume it won't be an issue only to be shown how dumb that is?

Alternatively, this can work with any mutant cure. A number of people use it on their mutant children, but it has a considerable side effect, staying dormant within the body even as those children grow up, get married and have kids of their own. This cure eventually mutates into a disease that begins wiping out humans.

Finally though: Again a disease that affects humans, but not mutants...who are in the minority anyway due to a unfortunately successful attempt to wipe them out. Thus the end of humanity.

I just want to see this whole mutant cure thing blow up in people's faces somehow. It's time it was put to bed.

Bloodthirsty Rob...signing out.

[up]It blows up in the humans’ faces somehow... and the X-Men still try to find a way to stop it. Because being heroes means helping others when you could just walk away. I wonder if that story’s been done.

[up][up] The Legacy Virus already targeted humans. Moira MacTaggert became one of the few humans to get it before she died.

Yeah, but that's because she was in direct contact with it while trying to cure it.

I'm talking a heavy Hoist by Their Own Petard situation where the Legacy Virus naturally evolves or mutates to start infecting normal humans as well because they have dormant X-Genes.

Basically it starts slaughtering them by the dozens even worse than it does mutants.

In order for this to work though, the blame for this has to entirely be on humans. Even Magneto doesn't do anything to make it happen; he just sits back and says well, I hope it was worth it flatscans.cool
