    Probably best, hasn't lit it up.

    I wonder what this 'enormous opportunity' at Marvel is? What's ending / losing a creative team in June?

    I'm thrilled he's staying at Marvel, but I do hope he's doing characters I enjoy. Yes, I'm talking about Namor. It's been too too long, Gillen. ;p

    I will also 'settle' for Dr. Strange.

    I really liked his run on Uncanny X-Men, but everything since (particularly the overly precious and into itself Young Avengers) has left me cold. Curious to see what he'll work on next. Other than Avengers or an X-book, I'm not really sure what would qualify as an 'enormous opportunity'.

    Didn't Marts say a fan favorite creator was going to be returning to the X-Books? If so, maybe this is it.

    Wow, that's certainly surprising.

    In a perfect world, he'd be doing a Death's Head book.

    gotta be STAR WARS. Right?


    ...
    though, yeah, X-Men would what I'd be happiest for. Just can't see what would count as enormous in the X-Office right now, save for replacing Bendis as 'lead writer' maybe, but I don't see that happening. Wonder who will follow Gillen on Iron Man (with a new volume, I assume?) I think I'd like Jason Aaron, could also see Al Ewing or Charles Soule.

    He said that creator had also been a writer on Amazing Spider-Man, so it can't be Gillen.

    He might have been talking about Guggenheim.

    Kind of weird that both the writers of Hulk and Iron Man leave after both crossover in Original Sin Hulk vs Iron Man. Anybody else see this as odd?

    You and me both. Whatever it is, I look forward to the announcement. I like Gillen, just not the Marvel characters he's written since leaving Uncanny X-Men.
