Pip Pippening Shocker: Did Marvel Really Cancel the X-Men This Time?

Bleeding Cool's San Diego Comic Con announcement barrage didn't include a single X-Men comic... bad news for the Perlmutter-hated franchise?

Earlier, we reported on Rich Johnston's eighty million individual two sentence articles spoiling all of Marvel's San Diego Comic Con announcements. Johnston, who claimed to receive this information from an "industry insider" (read: person at major comics media site who gets Marvel's pre-SDCC press packet sent it to him), followed up on his new series scoops with one more post detailing information about current Marvel series, and you can go and read that one here if you want. The most notable piece of information from the article, however, is that amongst all of this info, there is not one mention of any X-Men books:

As for everything else? No idea. But there's no mention I know of All-NewInhumans, Karnak, A-Force, Nighthawk, Agents of Shield, Mockingbird,, Scarlet Witch, Vision, Ant Man , Spidey, Carnage, Drax or any X-Men title aside from Death Of X...


Is the Death of X event planned to be the end of the X-books in general, all part of Ike Perlmutter's evil plan to spite Fox for fairly purchasing movie rights to several properties from Marvel when they had nearly driven themselves into bankruptcy with the same myopic publishing gimmicks they employ in record numbers today? We recently learned that Death of X will be a series that brings the dead (adult) Cyclops back to life so that Marvel can assassinate his character more before killing him off again, which could serve as the perfect exclamation point for Marvel's treatment of the property over the last decade.

Of course, X-Men characters, much like the Fantastic Four, could still appear in other series while Marvel, purely out of spite, refuses to publish any X-Men branded comics, because that will somehow make people stop going to Fox's movies (as if Fox's movies don't do enough to that end). Then again, Deadpool has been the most well-received Fox superhero movie in a long time, and Marvel is publishing something like twelve ongoing Deadpool series. Maybe the X-Men will be relaunched as Deadpool and the X-Men and ship twice a week for Marvel NOW!, at a per-issue price of $6.99. Whatever the case, we'll be sure to monitor Bleeding Cool for any news so we can repost it here while making fun of them.
