"For fans of canon Marvel lore, this series will be the equivalent of the Rosetta Stone, filling in the story gaps that have plague Marvel for decades."

So this will detail pre-Xavier mutantology, but it sounds like it'll be not that long before he gets involved. Wolverine (duh), Sabretooth and Magneto kicking ass and taking names. Supposed to answer the question I never asked, why mutants are feared and hated. Duh again. As if we needed to have fear and resentment of people who can fly, shoot beams out of their eyes and muck about in our minds explained further. They say it is NOT X-Men First Class the comic book.

Too bad Wolverine is so long lived, it just gives them carte blanche to shoehorn him into more titles. And we've already seen the paramilitary 'strikeforce' mutant team several times. I do like Neal Adams' work, but I am not yet convinced of the story telling necessity.

And another thing. This kind of old school mutant revisionism...I don't always like it. Originally mutants were an extension of atomic age fears of radiation and unknown spooky sciences. There was a cause of mutantism, just like Fan4 and their cosmic radiation. I liked that better for some reason than the whole Apocalypse was a mutant back in ancient effin Egypt thing.

In the words of Sean Connery, "I am waiting to be impreshed". Drops in August.

I will still take a look when it comes out. Heck there could be something we don't already know. I can't wait to see the reasons behind why mutants are feared. Maybe they are running out of ideas so they are creating this. I know my son will love it. Perhaps they are trying to draw in new blood.

Not tying to give you a hard time at all but this struck me as an odd thing to say. It seems to suggest that some things have "happened" already but we just haven't been told about them yet. Rather than saying "Heck maybe they'll make up some new stuff." Just interesting word choice.

Perhaps it was more meant that there might stuff we don't know about the early years. A lot has been explained already, so the area of 'unexplained' for that period is getting less and less. Sure they can always make up new stuff, but the more info there already, the more they have to work around.

This is getting meta a little. What has happened/will happen. Some B/S George Lucas history revisionism. Leave the past alone, future is much more interesting. What are year 3000 Guardians of the Galaxy getting up to?

Its better then moving forward with every issue being #1 to drive sales. They are looking for new "interesting" angles to drive sales.

Why not just write good stories?

I would suggest they think they usually do write good stories.
