    unofrtunately not. I would have rather this get another adjective like Amazing X-men (to go along with Astonishing, both which were used in AOA)

    I'll give the new writer a try but i wish they would put Paul Cornell on a main X-Title. He wrote a Kick-Ass Vampire Arc in the last few issues of Captain Britain & MI-13.......

    Paul Cornell is apparently only able to do one ongoing at a time it seems (He's a TV writer (Doctor Who, amongst other things.) as well as a science fiction novelist in general. He's about to start Action Comics (Starring Lex Luthor) soon, but I'd love to see him on a X Title for sure.

    Well, that would actually be in Legacy. This is a completely new title that's starting up.

    I'd rather see Astonishing go away and Ellis (minus Kaare artwork) write a new Adjectiveless as in-continuity.

    Technically, his current Astonishing has been. Kind of. It's been at least semi-acknowledged.

    And it's been fine.

    Stop the senseless hating, Outcry! You're not Manic!

    The only X-related work Ive liked of Ellis was his Excalibur. That was good but I havent cared for anything else from him. His AXM has been painfully boring

    Boring doesn't make it badly-written.

    Subjective opinion does not indicate a work's quality or worth.

    It's been well-written, cerebral, and relatively original if a bit out-there. Boring? To some. I certainly don't think so.

    This might be the first time I've ever wished an X-Men comic to fail resoundingly.

    I don't understand the hate for this. At least read it before you judge it, guys.

    Let me guess: mutants can turn on/off vampirism?

    Here, I'll explain it: I think vampires are stupid.

    And I guarantee it won't be as well-written as Cornell's MI:13 Dracula story.

    ^^Ah, good times, good times. It'll be hard work to have this measure up to that.... but you never know. I seem to recall rather enjoying both Gambit and Storm as vampires in MUtant X. :)

    Than don't read it. It's only the opening story arc anyway. People are acting as if the entire series is just going to be mutants vs vampires.

    I'm still hoping for Cornell to take over Uncanny. :yay:

    IA. The hate for this title is overblown. I think the vampire bit is stupid but at least we know it will only be one arc and hey may end up being a surprisingly good story. My biggest concern is that it will simply bc Uncanny 2.0. I really hope it gets more structure after the first arc and gets a defined and distinct cast. I doubt it but thats what I want. I dont want it to be Uncanny in new adventures

    So I decided to pop into this thread, and...

    What the hell, man?! I always give reasons for why I hate stuff. I don't even remember if Outcry ever said why he hates X-Factor.
