    So, why is it called X-MEN and not X-WOMEN? Oh, right...copyrights and licenses. ;)

    Very intriguing! The female characters in X-Men are some of the best in the world of Marvel and DC IMO.

    I'll read it primarily for Olivier Coipel's art. Storm, Rachel, and Rogue bore me and I f***ing hate Psylocke, but I like Kitty and I've been curious about vampire-Jubilee (that hasn't been undone yet, right?), so we'll see. Maybe it'll even turn me around on those other ladies. Brian Wood's pretty good.

    A separate thread dedicated specifically to this title isn't a big deal. Judge's decision: I'll allow it. :oldrazz:

    I wouldn't read too much into that. I'm sure they'll still hit stuff, but sometimes you've got to have stuff in-between hitting stuff.

    They should have met in the middle and called them X-Myn.

    Because a title called X-Men would sell better than a title called X-Women. X-Men at least implies that it's a successor title to the adjective-less X-Men book which was at one point one of the highest selling comics. Calling it X-Women would imply that Marvel will treat it as a fringe comic that has no relevance at all to the grand scheme of the X-Men universe, putting it on par with titles like: Gambit, X-Treme X-Men, X-Factor, Daken: Dark Wolverine, X-23, New Mutants, and whatnot.

    I wouldn't mind if it wound up like X-Factor. Unspectacular but consistent sales, freedom to tell its own stories, and a high standard of quality. Not too terrible.

    I'm a-ok with this, but I've two questions.
    1. Who's the one in red next to Rogue?
    and 2. Why must Storm have back her mohawk? (Not a lover of mohawks in general, but I was definitely not a fan of it on Storm. But that's just me.)

    Rachel Grey has the worst costume in comics right now. But I'm quite a fan of mohawk Storm.

    My one hope is that this is actually treated like it matters. I'm hoping it's on the same level as All New, Uncanny X-men, and Wolverine and the X-men. I do love that it's finally acknowledged that these women are the driving force behind the X-men.

    Does this change the way anyone thinks about Uncanny X-force now?

    But X-Factor is slowly, but surely getting to cancellation territory. I'm kind of afraid that PAD's run will end prematurely because I do think it will go below 20k this year.

    Ugh, no...lol. No fan of Rachel's but that would be so much worse.

    It has X-men in the title. For that alone, it will sell much better than X-factor. I expect it to be on par with the last volume to be honest. I never did read it when Woods took over following Schism. What were opinions on his X-men?

    and alt. cover

    Jubilee looks like she has some sort of std or something on her face.

    Not to mention PAD just had a stroke. I figure that might factor into the future of the book :huh:

    That alternate cover looks great. I guess Jubilee is just working really hard to blow that bubble.

    I actually really like Rachel's costume. It's better than the mini-skirt that I've never liked.

    While I would love this to be treated seriously, I expect it to matter for about an arc and a half and then it'll fall down to a 4th tier book again.

    I've heard this question a few times outside of hype and no, it doesn't. I'm mostly interested in Uncanny X-Force for the Fantomex stuff (cluster specifically) so this doesn't reflect that.

    Yeah, I liked that look, but I like the current one just as much.

    Is Uncanny X-Force still going to be about amoral d-bags killing everything in sight and then desperately trying to justify it to themselves so they can pretend they're still heroes? If so, nope, still not interested.

    I rather like Storm's new costume and I don't have strong feelings one way or the other on the mohawk. Now if only Storm herself were a less boring character...
