Full article here.
That interview was worthless. No spoilers or anything.
We want the x-solicits!

I know writing this executive mandated storyline is like being asked to polish a turd and isn't the best way to judge a writer's talents... but still, I'm not impressed. I can't see this title or this creative team lasting long after the X-men vs. Vampires borefest. I think it'd be better suited to an X-Kids book.
And I know I said I miss Gambit about 2 minutes ago, but I'd rather miss him and wait six months between appearances than have him involved with a title/story I suspect will go down in fandom annals as a Very Bad Idea Indeed.

That is kinda rude. Sure, it didn't have much in the way of spoilers, but Victor seems like a nice guy.

He says he's excited for Jubilee's direction, so I'm hopeful. Considering "there for a few issues and then killed" doesn't seem like much of a direction.
It sounds like he wants to turn the X-Men book into Gambit and the X-Men...
I never said that he wasn't a nice guy. I was talking more about the interview. There weren't a lot of questions asked and of course there weren't any spoilers given.

The only thing we get from this is the possibility of more Gambit...

I feel for Vic. This is a thankless gig. I hope he lands on his feet, though.
Does anyone know who the villian is for the next arc? It was said it would be a big bad from outside the x-verse.
Dr. Doom maybe?

How do figure that? He said that he had some plans to use him in future arcs. Not that he was going to build the whole book around him.
