I loved the book, though. I really liked that the team felt like it grew together, and was forged, quite literally, in the heat of battle. They had to kick ass or die. When they finally managed to put away Nimrod(with some help) they finally turned the corner and were on their way towards better things. I understand that sales were bad and the book had to end, but I really think it was just starting to hit its stride.
And I feel bad for not helping support it. I loved the Nimrod stuff. (In trade, of course.) And, yeah, a lot of the characters come from the eighties (almost all the villians), but the writing style feels more like the 90's to me.
And anyone who brings back Bastion as a villian (and he's always had potential) has read them some 90's books. I thinks that's why I like these two guys. They do their homework.
You look at Young X-Men and how blah it is, and you just kind of shake your head as to why they cancelled New X-Men to begin with. Then again, I don't understand any of the decisions that have come out of the X-office since Messiah Complex.
