    He thinks he's God's gift to d-listers.

    He's right. If it weren't for him they'd be completely and utterly undeveloped background characters at Wolverine's school.

    He was on a panel with Axel Alonso about adaptation at NYCC. You can read CBR's coverage of it here. Forgot to mention he also wrote the Avengers: Season One graphic novel, but that has yet to be released separately from the film. I've only ever read his X-Factor runs myself.

    The Camelot Papers isn't a magazine. It's another novel. Rather good, too.

    But yeah, he keeps himself busy. "Writer of Stuff" and all that. And he seems content to be doing just X-Factor for now.

    He gets sick of having to tie things in to every X-over and event, which is why he first left X-Factor in the 90s. Now other stuff occupies him.
    I would like to say for the record that this is the FIRST TIME I've withheld dong when someone was so desperately asking for some.

    They were the only interesting thing within X-Cutioner's Song. Even the Bishop/Cable/Wolverine team-up was good. I'm sure PAD could fart out a generic Wolverinecentric crowd pleaser and it would be actually awesomer.

    I read a couple of his Wolverine: First Class issues and they were fun (could just be my Kitty bias, but whatever).

    Yep I agree, he hates cross-overs but does them so well.

    Except that he doesn't want to. Though it isn't quite true that he hates all crossovers. He participated in some during his Hulk run, and his current X-Factor run. He just likes to make sure that the story in the crossover is relevant to the characters in his book and that it flows naturally. His problem with X-Cutioner's Song was that the story was divided up into 12 parts without taking into consideration which part would be published in which title. So we had X-Factor sidelined in favor of the Bishop/Cable/Wolverine team-up. He thought that wasn't fair to readers who bought the book wanting to read about X-Factor. Compare this to Messiah Complex, which came fairly early in his second run. It was a much better organized story with each part containing characters from all four books and moves the overall plot forward, but they made sure that important character beats happened in their own book, so each issue of X-Factor would still matter to X-Factor readers who didn't care about the overall plot of the X-Books.

    I hope PAD adds one of the X-Kids as the Seventh member of the astonishing team.

    Meh. His Wolverine run wasn't very good. I liked all of his other stuff better.
