I don't, at least I don't remember. I stopped reading comics for whatever reason in early 90's and I don't remember much about who wrote a particular story. The thing is, I didn't know that much about DOFP story either. I just checked out the animated series' version of it some weeks ago, being curious, but I don't have a foundation to build my expectations on other than Singer and the cast.
And I admit I am very much biased towards Singer's X-men along with the main casting choices. Not in "It's going to be better than (insert title) and I have already decided this"-way, but on the terms of what feels "right" for me and what I'm looking forward to. Cap (and some other titles) still need to win me over to some extent. I'm not saying someone is an idiot for not liking what I like, or vice versa, oh no. I like Prometheus myself, for goodness' sake.
