Magento was a good title. I still maintain my long held beliefs that most X-Solos just don't work in concept because they didn't have big super hero type lives before the X-Men.

Outside Wolverine, they are not like the Avengers or Justice League. These are not heroes who joined a super hero team up. They are people who became heroes while at whatever version of Xavier's they showed up at. Every attempt at a solo feels like some weird out of character attempt to create a background and history of the character so they have their own supporting cast and personal villains unrelated to the greater X-Men mythos. It's a tired, failed strategy. Magneto worked but it's because, like Wolverine, he's not from the same mold. He has history, a back story, a mystery, personal enemies etc.

The only thing that sucks about X-Men solo titles is that they always at some point have to crossover or tie into whatever event is affecting the main x-books at the time.

I loved Magneto. It didnt set the charts on fire tho (25k/30k or something around if Im not mistaken?). It was sustainable so my previous post wasnt accurate. But I highly doubt Iceman could pull those numbers.

I really wish there was an online equivalent to the whole class throwing spitballs at that one kid in the front row. That would be Pheggy.

10k of those were those three Storm fans on the old CBR board - can't remember their names, but I remember one was going regularly without food and still buying Storm comics.

What do we make of this? Did someone accidentally spill the beans early?
