Am I the only one who thinks Fantomex is beeing overexposed?

Brian said...

No, I feel the same way. He's approaching "90s Gambit" level overexposure, and it's boring AF, frankly.

I miss Cluster. We need more girl on girl action in the books.

Rahsaan Chisolm said...

That was a joke. I hate Cluster and the two other Fantom incarnations to be honest. I only liked the character during Remender's run.

Please leave heel / villain Fantomex out of the x books until he is fixed , thank you.

Blu Berri said...

"From blockbuster writer CHARLES SOULE..."

Why do I feel like this is patronizing?

FSaker said...

Sorry, but I disagree with you guys. How is Fantomex overexposed? He's not appearing on multiple books, as far as I know. The only time when he was on multiple books was during Spurrier's X-Force, as a teacher in Wolverine and the X-Men (which I'm not even sure many people remember) and his MAX miniseries; other than that, he's been exposed as much as Rachel or Gambit - and let's face it, these two aren't exactly getting a lot of exposure in recent years.

You may dislike his character, and that's fine, but he's far from being overexposed. That's a term that fits better with Old Man Logan (X-Men Gold, Weapon X, Astonishing and solo book), teen Jean (X-Men Blue, solo book and who knows what else she'll get soon), Storm (X-Men Blue and Black Panther's team book), Deadpool (do I need to explain?), and so on.

I do think, however, that writers could try to use him and Psylocke in different team books, instead of having them constantly teaming up and fighting each other. But hey, Psylocke interacting with Fantomex is still better than no Psylocke in comic books at all (which we were all fearing that would happen to her after IvX, remember?).

You are totally right. I think Im the only person in the world who loves fants. Maybe because of diabolik. But it's fine. Happy that we have gambit again. And really hope Betsy would be a key member in this roster.
