Fraction Talks X-Books Future

CBR: On Saturday at the 2011 Emerald City Comicon, Brian Michael Bendis, Matt Fraction, Ed Brubaker and Jonathan Hickman appeared at a packed panel to discuss their plans for the Marvel U. A fan wanted to know more about the X-Men's future plans. As the team has been through so much over the past year, he was wondering what new direction the X-books could possibly take.

Fraction smiled at this and replied, "Boy, 2012 is a great year to answer that question. We have a really big idea that ate up two and a half days of our lives recently. It's the whole murder-marriage-death-birth cycle/saga, yet bigger and better and onwards and upwards."

"With all the [X-Men] storylines in the next twelve months, you'll start to see that they're all converging towards a single point. You'll see… we're getting there. Almost all the pieces are on the board."

I've actually given up hope on Fraction and his promises. There's never any pay-off. That is, unless one likes no proper segue or buildup and anticlimactic conclusions. Every time he promises some big, Earth-shattering story for the X-Men, I am left utterly underwhelmed.

Well said Rahsaan. Also, it's one big earth shattering story after another, & it has been old for some time. Fraction is a terrible writer & I haven't read Uncanny in some time.
