how is X-Men 'All Different'?! roughly the same old characters from the last 30-odd years! why don't they do something REALLY all-new and all-different, liek they did back in Giant Size 1, and introduce some NEW X-Men?!

They did something like that a while back with these guys:

No Caption Provided

It was ok and it gave us characters we already sort of knew but that we wanted to see more off.

And then they slowly faded out of importance, except for the one that's a clone of the most popular character Marvel has ever had.

Why? Because nobody likes to deviate from the normal!

I don't buy that - the X-Men have had big lineup changes many times, but since the mid 90s they've stuck with roughly the same team and it's SO old hat now!! give Storm and a few of the others a rest!!

Maybe I've been reading comics too long - 35 years - but it's hard to get excited at the sight of Storm, Nightcrawler etc STILL being the X-Men

would it be too much to ask to just one new member to the X-Men?! one brand new mutant who had the impact of say, Gambit, when he first appeared?!

@mickeymayhew: Yes, but they weren't a popular franchise back then. Marvel has no reason to take risks when the current X-Men are safe and profitable.

profitable and predictable

@mickeymayhew: You know exactly why: it wouldn't sell well, and most comic book fans hate change.

well Giant Size 1 back in '75 sold well enough to catapult the X-Men to the top of Marvel's charts.

Unbelievable; a chance for a fresh start with the X-Men, maybe the time to do something as daring as Giant Size 1 back in '75, but no, it's the same old characters with a few minor tweaks and time-travel alternates. So looked forward to this, so not excited now
