At one time, Exiles was one of my favorite reads in the comic market. While most multi-verse stories usually turn me off, whether they be DC or Marvel, I felt Exiles was a fresh approach and I had genuine fun reading their early adventures. I think it was even more impressive that for the most part, the writers did it with few big name characters given long-running "Exile versions." Lesser known characters like Morph, Blink, and Mimic made for some of the more interesting character plots. Issue #100 was pretty disappointing. A BBQ on the beach, a few good-byes, and a reprint of the first issue. Not exactly going out with a bang, eh? I don't have much hope for New Exiles. For one thing, I'm disappointed that Marvel wants to include Exiles more into the X-Men universe. I felt the title worked better as a mostly separate entity. I'm also not thrilled that Chris Claremont is taking over. That man lost "charm" in his writing a long time ago, and even when he was still considered a "legend" I always thought his X-Books were overrated. I don't know... I think what ruined Exiles most of all was finding out what was really going on. The title was more interesting when Timebroker was an enigma and we didn't discover bugs in a crystal palace controlled everything. Honestly, I'm so disappointed with how far this title has gone downhill, that I'm considering not even buying New Exiles. What you say Exiles fans? Any hope for the new title? Excited? Meh?
