@idontlikebirds: They would if people actually BOUGHT the books with the lesser known characters. Gambit has been cancelled for that reason. X-23 and Daken were cancelled long ago for the same reasons. The majority of people only buy those issues from the more prevalent characters. People come here and whine and complain and then they go buy the issues. People's voices and writing mean naught, they need to speak with their wallet.
My response exactly... I guarantee at least half of the people that complained about the events will be purchasing it. Words mean nothing in this industry... you have to learn to speak with your wallet.
@akbogert They do that with all $3.99 issues, which I agree is kind of cool. All of these Marvel NOW! issues populate my iPad which is kind of nice. I just wish they did that with all issues, but for now, I'll take the current setup.
W/O any information I think it's unfair to say they hate the X-Men. Considering previous interviews and the fact that the Avengers film made a lot of money, I think it's more safe to say that they simply favor the Avengers more.
The only information you need is that all Marvels top talent has been put on Avengers books and the flagship X-book just got cancelled
That's not enough to claim Marvel hates the X-Men. Many of Marvel's top talent, and even editorial, seem to be Avengers fans, so the company has been more Avengers oriented the past few years. This doesn't equate hate. The cancelling of Uncanny X-Men sucks, but they are putting out All New X-Men as the flagship, and they have Uncanny Avengers.
Uncanny Avengers is not an X-Men book nomatter how many mutants is on the team. It would be like if they started a book called the Mighty X-Men and tried to call it an Avengers book. Also All New X-Men is a stupid, stupid idea with the the worst roster I have ever seen
I agree that Uncanny Avengers is not an X-Men book. It's an Avengers book, and like I said before, the current administration at Marvel favors the Avengers more than the X-Men, but that does not mean they hate the X-Men. And I agree that the concept of ANX is stupid.
At the end of AvX, there will be no such thing as Avengers or X-Men... that's what Remender is doing (hell, what the whole Marvel NOW is all about). They're taking these historically separate corners of the Marvel universe and combining them into one entity.
Again, five pages worth of comments about people bitching about "events", yet you will ALL storm the comic book stores and purchase this... giving more incentive to these companies to continue pushing out events since they are the highest selling books during the time they normally occupy the market. Your fingers and mouths can do all the whining, but your wallet behaves differently... they don't care what you say, they care what you buy.
