    Default 5 X-Men ongoings?

    Sorry if this was asked before, but I've got to be sure (I hope I'm mistaking):

    After "Schism", will we have 5 (five!) X-Men ongoings? Uncanny will split in:
    - Uncanny X-Men
    - Wolverine and the X-Men

    and we will still have:
    - X-Men Legacy
    - Astonishing X-Men
    - X-Men

    and a case can be made that X-Force is a 6th X-Men title, in content if not by name...

    Is that it? We already have 4 Wolverine ongoings (with Daken and X-23) and 4 Deadpool ongoings. Plus a handful of "well-behaved titles" that are polite enough to not demultipliate (New Mutants, X-Factor, Generation Hope).

    Is it some kind of problem?

    Do we have a problem here?

    Is any of these really effecting anything?

    Each tell various types of stories...as long as casts become to diversify who gives a crap if there is 10...

    It's not an issue.

    lol at this point why are people freaking out about one more? I'm genuinely curious why the number five is triggering this?

    New Mutants is another X-Men team, in name too unlike X-Force.

    He's back to one I believe. But Deadpool Max is still running as a Maxi-Series I think and will have a sequel in a few months.

    What gave you the impression that Astonishing would ever catch up to the post schism X-books?

    i think the reason five is freaking everyone out is because there were 5 original x-men which then leads to the realization of adding the total number together 1+2+3+4+5 X 5 *5*5 + (5*5*4) - 5

    gives you the ascii character spelling out iceman is gay when you add those ascii characters up

    Bad math. Faulty premise.

    The fact that I've yet to get that impression is exactly my point. I can continue to ignore it, but it will still be hilarious to see it in the shops.
