>>119737971>X-Men was fine
Unless you were an X-Men fan. He has been open about disliking Marvel and not getting the X-Men and it shows. His treatment of the JLA was giving them epics and writing them as godlike heroes. For Batman, it was "everything happened", a reverential treatment of the shittiest throwaway 60s stories about Rainbow Batmen and Dream Batmen and shit.
For X-Men, it was "everything done so far is trash and we need to start over". His IDEAS for the run (mutant culture, X-Men going proactive and global) were fine. The execution was one of the worst ever, with the Magneto plot genuinely being in the top 5 worst X-Men comics ever and Marvel still hasn't figured out how to unfuck the Xorneto thing. The Scott/Emma/Jean triangle was just nasty soap opera that made everyone look terrible, and Sublime was by far the shittiest retcon in years (an ancient sentient bacteria was behind humans hating mutants! Allegory, an exploration of prejudice, what's that? Why actually incorporate depth when you can do a meme OC villain who was actually behind everything. Sublime was Rogol Zaar 20 years early.) Jean and Magneto's deaths were unnecessary trash. Claiming you want to explore mutant culture and mutants as an up and coming species but then start your run by killing their nation and 99% of the population is at best tonally confusing and disjointed.
It was just a bunch of cynical, vapid pretentious nonsense with zero depth and originality except MAYBE the U-Men. But we got leather outfits and he talked about mutant culture a lot (not actually showing it as more than a cameo, of course, can't have actually transformative writing), so it's cool. Fuck Morrisonfags who defend his Marvel work.
