    Thanks for the answer, yf!

    Agreed. This is entire series is nonsense.

    These aren't inconsequential tweaks.

    The stuff like replacing Jean and Annie's frisbee with a basketball is no big deal. No cares about that. Fine, whatever.

    But, for example, saying that Storm was in the thrall of Shadow King as a child in Egypt and was stealing for him fundamentally alters both characters and their relationship to one another.

    Given Storm's willpower, she would have had a personal vendetta against Amahl Farouk for the rest of her life for such an invasive affront. It would also alter how Farouk saw Storm in every subsequent encounter. It creates an entire relationship and character dynamic between two X-Characters THAT NEVER EXISTED in the first place.

    Not to mention the fact that it entirely wipes out Achmed el-Gibar from existence who was Storm's true master thief teacher and surrogate father. There was an entire issue of X-Men Unlimited dedicated to el-Gibar and exploring Storm's close relationship to him and the other thieves of Cairo. But hey, just ignore all that, right?

    There's lots more, but that's just one instance.

    Pay Grand Design no attention. This isn't canon.

    I rather like some of the changes Piskor's made to the narrative - some less so (Jean in Ted's bed for instance). But I think his reimagining of the continuity with the overarching theme of the Phoenix is good. I made a review on both of the issues if anyone is interested. Below is the first one. I am looking forward to the next issues.
