According to all new information and reports, Bendis is going to be coming in after AvX with the All New X-Men (which includes a Jean Grey that’s traveled forward in time or something) or whatever the hell they’re called. Frankly, I can’t give a rats ass about what the name of the book is, because I’m too angry to think straight.
I had maintained ever since the rumors started that Bendis would be coming over to
fuck up write the X-Verse, I’d be okay with it, provided it didn’t mess up Uncanny, X-Factor or Legacy. Welp, they’re cancelling Uncanny and now the state of Emma after this is very much up in the air, apparently.
Uncanny’s been cancelled…maybe? They’re not very forthcoming about it. All they’re saying is that Bendis’s book is to Uncanny what New Avengers is to Avengers…except we still have New Avengers and Avengers books. Yay Brevoort! Thanks for the clarification?
It just sucks. This was my dream book. Ever since 534.1, I wanted Gillen on this book permanently. Then, for ONCE, Marvel actually gave me what I wanted O_O And now, here we are, with it being taken away. We had to suffer the reign of Fraction for years and then we finally got relief with the brilliance that was Kieron Gillen, somebody who not only understood these characters, but who cared about them. Now they’re being thrust into the hands of Bendis.
We thought Fraction was bad for Emma…but imagine her under the pen of Bendis? I shudder at the thought. And that’s assuming she even makes it out of this alive. We all know there’s going to be at least one casualty (it’s a Marvel event, death is required eyeroll) and a lot of whispers say it’s going to be an Avenger…but what if it’s Emma? Just throwing that morbid question out there.
If it is, it’s highly likely that I will be dropping Marvel. As is, I refuse to buy anything that Bendis writes purely on principal (save for AvX <_<)
