So with all this talk of House of M, DeciMation, Generation M, Son of M, etc., what's going to happen to Uncanny X-Men and X-Men? These books, as of late, feel disconnected and stagnant from the rest of the Marvel titles. Also, compared to twelve issues of Astonishing X-Men, the titles don't do the characters justice at all.
So, of all the times to really retool how the titles are going to be run, this may be it. The books are about to run head-first into the aftermath of an event that effects mutants in a deep and profound way, and one that may leave some X-Men powerless, and we'll have Peter Milligan and Chris Claremont to take up those chores. Isn't this a bad idea? Can they handle the emotional impact of an event of this magnitude, while keeping true to the characters and an interesting plot? They're going to shoulder this themselves, so can they pull off something this big?
Yeah for xmen after Havok ran off with the nurse, Annie, during his wedding to Polaris that shit went downhill for me.
As for uncanny Claremonts ruining that book again too. Psylocke has come back usless and the other characters have been written so lame lately its not even funny.
Even the house of M x-men has sucked and their supposed to be important in the HOM
I still feel like Milligan is just getting his footing on X-MEN. Claremont, eh, his time is past.
man i just wish they'd give it to ANYBODY who would make me want to read it again.

I just don't see how these books can continue to operate the way they have been with these writers at the helm. I just don't think they're capable of telling the necessary stories here.
