i think there comes a time in every comics readers life, mostly, more than any other book, where you simply....move past the X-Men. and you don't get anything that happens after that. you just don't. But it's different for every person. and no one thinks it will happen to them
It just gets too weird, too convuluted, too headache inducing,.
So some older folks, it's the new X-Men, or when Byrne left, or Wolverine became front and center, or when Magneto turned good, or archangel, or when they went to australia or Gambit/Bishiop/Cable
But i came in around australia and love all the shit before that, Australia, and Gambit/Bishop/Cable. I used to laught at those who complaiend it was too complicated. Ho ho, of course i understand Bishop's future, and Phoenix, and Madelyine Pryor, and demon Rasputins, and Cable's origin. and Mr. Sinister. and Apcalypse.
Sometime around the time that the Beast turned into a gay cat, and Magneto/Xorn, continuing into the third Summers Brothers, i think it was, i started to get a headache. which began to grow
and now every time I try to read the X-Men, I get a migraine.
and the ghost of X-Fans past whispher "we knew it would happen to you"
