    You know what? I was gonna say his costume was pretty stupid, but compared to those others... Everything is relative, man.

    Wait, WTF was that about the X-Men now living on Krakoa and can resurrect themselves?! (Admittedly, the last time I actually bought and read any Marvel comic at all outside of the kid-friendly Marvel Adventures stuff was back during Ultimate Spider-Man, around the point of Ultimatum.)

      "House of X"/"Powers of X" was a great reboot to the X-books, and made that corner of the universe worth reading for the first time in years...

      • Ai Muhao says:

        Hahah. I'll have to take your word for it. A big part of why I stopped reading stuff like Marvel and DC was because I got sick of characterisation and/or story buildup at the hands of good writers being thrown away because the next writer had a favourite character, had a favourite ship, or was just a spiteful little asshole.

        On a related note, that's also why I never bought toys of, say, the Stepford Cuckoos or X23-as-Wolverine: since they're after my time I don't have any emotional attachment to them (or even knowledge of them), so I'm not willing to spend money on them.

          Yeah the rotating author system is a large reason I don't read a lot of Marvel or DC unless they're stand-alone miniseries.

          Other publishers are better about it or at least have a more cohesive end goal/ editorial control. Manga too, typically one author for the whole run who's often the artist too, with a small team of assistants.

          • Ai Muhao says:

            Yeah, manga is my go-to example specifically because you generally have a single driving force throughout the run.

            And even in cases like Dragon Ball, where Dragon Ball Super is written by someone else, the original author still maintains a presence. You're not going to suddenly have Son Goku reveal that he nursed a crush on Bulma back when he was a kid, for example.

            Though it should be pointed out that big franchises can still fall victim to that kind of thing. Like, I personally thought Gundam Narrative was garbage because it pushed the whole Newtype thing from "improved reflexes and a kind of psychic sense" (i.e. how it was portrayed in the original Gundam) to "full on superpowers".

          • Pharmadan says:

            Honestly who didn't have a crush on Bulma as a kid ;p

            As for Gundam it's one a a few series where it's gotten too big it's starting to have the multi author issues. At least most series are pretty self contained or have alternate timelines. Kinda like godzilla
