    yes yes and yes. the dumbing down of veteran members is why I can't get on board with this book. storm should have declined her request to stay as she has done nothing of value imo.

    Well after all Gold for now is still outselling Blue and I think that the return of Omega Red is going to be a good arc, although a change of uniforms would help a lot .

    All of this. I think that Rachel's received a nice little push, but others like Storm are languishing. Writing is ok, but for me it's because of the cast. How many original stories/threats can you create for the team that has been shown together for like 40 years? None.

    I wouldn't be surprised if this shifted focus becomes a theme. Maybe Storm will get a fabulous spotlight arc, but then go back to being background fodder. It would be fine if it wasn't so one dimensional. Why can't all these character movements occur at the same time?

    The quality of the first six issues range from mediocre to bad, in my opinion. So I dropped the book.
    Marvel: All-New Guardians of the Galaxy, All-New Wolverine, Amazing Spider-Man, Darth Vader, Star Wars, Unbelievable Gwenpool, X-Men: Gold.

    DC: Aquaman, Batman, Detective Comics, Flash, Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps, Red Hood and the Outlaws, Trinity.

    the mystery of the new Brotherhood of Evil Mutants is why I bought it. the lameness of the new Brotherhood of Evil Mutants is why I dropped it.

    Generally speaking, yes. It's certainly a step in the right direction given what X-Fans have endured for the past several years.

    That said, the Kitty as hyper aggressive leader thing is completely overdone and distracting. Also, the pacing and clarity of storytelling could use some more attention -- things feel a bit sloppy sometimes. (But I feel that way about most modern comics.) Also, Rachel needs to ditch that terrible new costume and ridiculous new name.

    But overall, I think they're at least finally trying. I like the tone, feel, and cast. I also really like seeing Piotr and Kitty together again. I can get behind those things, if nothing else.

    Agreed. The costume is hideous and the codename is so random. She should just go back to Phoenix since no one else is using it. Especially since the last time she took that name, Jean returned not much later...

    Rachel should go back to her other codename that starts with letter R.
