    However, I do wish they would use their teens a little more. I can't really talk about the X-Men side of things (maybe Magik? X-23?) but in terms of the Avengers, when was the last time someone went from being a Young Avenger or Initiate to become a proper Avenger? Y'know, just because a character starts out in a teen team shouldn't mean they cannot evolve beyond it.

    Reptil on the Avengers, Cloud 9 on the Thunderbolts, that kinda thing.

    I think it didn't work because it was too many too fast.

    And honestly, I've been trying to find what run that is for a bit casually and have not been able to. I'm not a big DC reader, so I missed their advertizing or it. I know it existed, but . . .

    Reviewing is a lot like paleontology: the evidence is there, but no one seems to agree on it.

    I still don't get why they cancelled it. I mean, sure, Kyle and Yost were moving on. But at the time it was the top selling X-Men satellite book. It made no sense to me.

    I miss Rockslide, Hellion, Elixir and Dust appearing regularly.

    Yeah. With an almost entirely different cast, remit, and art style. Lasted less than a year.

    Another example of the X-Office shooting themselves in the foot.

    Sorry, I don't read DC so really couldn't comment but I wouldn't suggest elevating the wole team/core members or dropping the "Young" prefix. Surely though, there has to be a couple of young heroes out there who are worth a shot in one of Marvels premier teams. I used Reptil and Cloud 9 as examples but this is not the place to debate who is most worthy I guess.

    Cloud 9 is worthy. That's not up for debate.

    It was the final JLA run before the DCnU reboot. Robinson was the writer, and he has been generally awful since coming back from Hollywood a while back.

    Shade mini was pretty awesome though.

    they cancelled it so kyle and yost could continue their purifier story in x-force.

    That wasn't really neccessary, though. I mean they were just starting X-Force. Taking the story over to another X-Title is hardly a new concept. It doesn't require cancelling the other title.

    It was odd to me, because not only was it the best selling satelite x-title, but they'd only in the previous few issues before cancellation changed the roster.

    Young X-Men wasn't really a continuation, either. It picked the weakest background characters to add in.

    Failure all round, for me.

    x-force was a commercial and critical success, sorry it didn't work for you.

    I didn't say that, Aces. I have the full run in my long box, along with the Sex and Violence mini. Loved it.

    My point is that cancelling New X-Men (Top seller with an established cast) and replacing it with Young X-Men (New book with C-list cast) made very little sense.

    Yeah Young X men was pretty awful. Still not sure what was going through Marvel's heads there, unless the issue was with kyle / yost to being able to do both (doubtful) i'm not sure why they would cancel it.
