    So that number in brackets at the end - is that the position it held the previous month?

    Legion was a mistake. It was never going to be massive, and many of the fans of Spurrier's Legacy arent getting it.

    The comic book market is a disaster btw, bad sales all over

    They can soon number and sign each copies of Iceman... (eh, that would be super collector!)

    I think Exiles will sell awful too to be honest, because of the roster. It isnt recognizable as an Exiles book. You need more than Blink and random people

    Poor Generation X. But sadly, the art & focus on new characters drug it down a lot.

    Nice to see low sales for Weapon X. Hopefully it'll continue that route and end early....Gotta have dreams.

    I think both issues of Deadpool were in the 70s also. After #300, I hope Marvel scales it back down again and cools off with the minis and oversized issues. Really hurt the latter stages of Duggan's run I think.

    Exiles is prestige bait.

    Yep. I think that's a big thing that did in Generation X. When you reboot an older title, you need recognizable popular characters. And when that doesn't happen, you get tons of disappointed fans because it's not about the same characters they came to love in the original.

    GenX had Jubilee. But all the other OG members were background foils to the new lovable losers. And many didn't want that. Also many Monet fans are pissed about the M-Plate deal that has taken it's time ever being addressed with Bunn losing her.

    Now Exiles is doing the same. They gave us Blink, but nobody else. Like Morph, or Sabretooth, or any of her previous teammates. I guess Wolvie was their answer by replacing Sabretooth (mentor) with a young Wolverine (student) variant for Blink to care for, reversing her role from the child & student to the mother & teacher.

    As with any title. Focus on the older classic characters, THEN bring in the new characters as foils to develop the older cast, and give people a chance to warm to the newer ones.

    I really thought Phoenix Resurrection would have done better given it was Jean's big return. Marvel did a really poor job marketing it as a big event.
