    I can kind of see where people are coming from with regards to Deicimation because they like the idea of mutants being like a real minority with enough people to be a true community with it's own culture. And while really the only time that it was like this was during Grant Morrison's run, and even the patron saint of X-books mostly ignored this while he was writing his own book at the same time, even though Morrison's run is only a very small part of X-history, I can see being upset that we never got to see where that thread went.

    If that's anything resembling what your talking about then I can see what you mean. I don't agree with you, and I think you're blowing things way out of proportion, but it's understandable, and it's a place to start a disscussion.

    So far I haven't seen anything other than,"I don't like the characters that are being used, use my favorite characters or I'll flame you on the message boards."

    As a huge fan of Domino I can't praise CaXF's first two issues highly enough. She's been superb.

    Plus the real Hope is back, and working hard to make up for her mishandling throughout AvX.

    Needs a new title to clear the air between it and that other (ewwww) X-Force book.

    I suggest Cable's X-Losers. Cable's Hobo Crew? The Bums? Cable in Charge? My Two Cables? Forge N Frienz? Domino gets passed around like a fresh pack of cigs in the clink?

    Are you sure they could fit this on the cover?

    Domino's the only good thing about it. So far Hope has been really boring in it.

    I bet within the first arc you'll become a fan.

    May not like what marvel is doing to alot of the X-men but then I look at Spider-man and realize it can get soooo much worse.

    It's not even that. Most x-books in the wake of Schism didn't have much of a distinct premise. For the sake of fairness, it's pretty much been like this ever since X-Force pretty much highjacked the franchise back during Messiah Complex.

    More sex to go with my violence would be a welcome happenstance.

    ^ This right here. Hopefully withins months, it will become "Domino, Lady Mastermind, and a few old men"

    I jumped back on with the new "The New Mutants" and Remender's X-Force so I missed that party.

    With any luck, new mutants being born will also mean new mutants being written about, which is mostly what I'm looking for as a reader.

    I like Cyclops' new direction, I like the use of Magik, I like Emma as a character, I like Magneto's adaptation to new circumstances but I also want to see some new blood brought to the forefront.

    As an avid X-Book reader, the New Mutants appealed to me because they were "new" at the time. The same could be said for Generation X when it launched.

    I'm not getting that same "fresh and original" vibe from the NOW series' recycled characters, but I'd agree that the X-Books are definitely in a better place now than they were before and during Schism and AvX.

    It reminds me of something I read about the music industry where they used to nurture new artists and build "hit" albums versus now where they just look for the next "hit" single, artistry and legacy be damned.

    You can blame X Factor for that!
