In his defense, especially when it comes to the X-Men, Grant Morrison fixed the toys before putting them back into the box. It was the writers who came after him (*cough* Chuck Austen *cough*) that broke them all over again. :smt102



I liked his run, but I wouldn't say he "fixed" (in the sense of repairing the changes he made to the status quo) much of anything. The X-Universe was a dramatically different place after Morrison than it was before. This is unlike how he concluded JLA.

DC Comics - Legion Of Super-Heroes, Doom Patrol, Infinity INC.

Marvel Comics - Darkhawk, Hank Pym... GiAnt-Man, The Champions.

They'd all be about shit in the hood.

"Oh, the pointing again! They're screwdrivers! What are you going to do? Assemble a cabinet at them?"
"Are you capable of speaking without flapping your hands about?"
""Timey" what? "Timey wimey"?"

I want Cypher from the New Mutants. I'd write a great mini about him.

IIRC...

JLA - Zauriel stays in Heaven, Aztek died... and I think that's about it.
Batman - Robin dies, Knight dies, Squire replaces him
X-Men - Xorn is Magneto, Phoenix is still dead, Genosha is gone, the Institute is actually a school now, etc
