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.
Quote: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.
I like quite a few of them, too, but I'm willing to lose them.
Quote:5. No Old Man Logan. He should have just stayed in that repulsive future of Millar's.
Quote:Exactly. Why would any writer want to reuse one of Millar's ideas. Ugh.
I can understand why. Millar's FF was popular.
Quote:7. No Legacy cure guinea pig. Such a stupid plot device that someone had to sacrifice themselves.
Quote:At the time it didn't bother me. I figured Moira would be back by now.
I was talking about Colossus. In order to activate the cure, someone needed to be injected with it and die. He volunteered to be the guinea pig. Even though we got the very touching Kitty story that followed, where she spread his ashes, I hate it.
I am sad about Moira, but not overly bothered by her death. It upsets me more than all of her friends and lovers, apparently, because they're so accepting of Mystique being around (no, I don't accept that it wasn't her), but I think she went out well.
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.
Quote: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".
I think it was more along the lines of:
Bendis: "Blah blah blah blah."
Everybody else: "Oh, Bendis said something. It must be cool. YAY!"
Mind you, I think it was pretty menacingly cool to have the Danger Room manipulate a poor Decimated mutant into suicide.
