Quote:1. Everything from Morrison's run. No Cassandra. No Fantomex. No Sublime. No Emma/Scott Freakshow. No Jean death. No Xorn(eto or otherwise). If I never hear the word "Mummudrai" again it'll be too soon.
I don't think I liked any of his plots but I did kind of like seeing all the weirdo students. X-Men sort of became Futurama for a bit there.
Quote:2. No Decimation. Thus no Hope Summers (even though she may as well not exist, since she spends most of her time in limbo), and no Bishop character assassination.
Good one. I think Hope bothered me more than the actual de-mutant-ing.
Quote:3. No AOA leftovers. Nate, Dark Beast, Holocaust, Sugarman-- each one grosser than the next.
Quote:4. No Grey family slaughter. I really think it was just part of the attempt to delete Jean from relevancy and push the Emma/Scott Freakshow.
Made me so angry...
Quote:5. No Old Man Logan. He should have just stayed in that repulsive future of Millar's.
Exactly. Why would any writer want to reuse one of Millar's ideas. Ugh.
Quote:6. Everything from Remender. All of that Apocalypse Seed crap. Anything from Uncanny Avengers too.
I think I didn't read most of that...
Quote:7. No Legacy cure guinea pig. Such a stupid plot device that someone had to sacrifice themselves.
At the time it didn't bother me. I figured Moira would be back by now.
Quote:8. No heel turns for: Emma, Mystique, Marrow, Juggernaut, Lady Mastermind, or Sabretooth. Villains they'd remain. Rotten to the core.
Juggernaut didn't bother me so much. I've always seen him as more of a jerk than as someone truly evil. Then again he's probably killed people and I just haven't read those appearances.
Quote:9. No sentient Danger Room. At the very least, I would twist her origin into being a spawn of Bastion, inserted when he stole all of the X-Men's tech.
That just sounded like such a bad idea. I'm curious what the reaction was in the room when it was pitched. "It's like those TNG episodes where the Holodeck came alive that everyone always loves...but with the (dramatic pause) DANGER ROOM".
Quote:10. No Jimmy Hudson, either. In fact, technically, Ultimate "mutants" should not count as main universe mutants. Ultimate "mutants" are the products of the Ultimate Weapon X program.
He's a survivor from the Ultimate verse. He's a son of Wolverine. He doesn't deserve that name. There was never a chance for me to like him.
