The Only Things I Care About in X-Men: Disassembled

OK, so we’ve known for a bit now that the Uncanny X-Men title was coming back to print this fall. As I’ve mentioned before on this blog, Marvel loves relaunching the X-Men with an entirely new status quo every two years or so. I call it the X-Men Assembly Line. And the next major twist has been announced, kicking off with the 10-part Disassembled.

I’m not all that excited by this relaunch, at least not until we know more about what’s going to happen. I like the general idea, at least. I think the X-Men are long overdue for an overhaul. The fat needs to be trimmed, and I hope this Disassembled thing is that fat-trimming.

You can read more about the whole thing at Marvel.

There are three important things to note, at least as far as I’m concerned:

  1. Kelly Thompson is indeed going to be a major player in the X-Men franchise. This is awesome news! She’s the excellent writer behind all the great Rogue & Gambit stuff we’ve been seeing.
  2. The Multiple Man in that picture has the “M” tattoo over his eye. The currently alive Jamie Madrox over in the Multiple Man comic is a dupe who does not have the “M” tattoo over his eye. Could this mean that Jamie Prime will be back by Disassembled? I’m hopeful!
  3. Where the heck is Strong Guy? I have been dutifully on Strong Guy Watch for awhile now, and I’m disappointed that this is a big X-Men group shot and he’s not hiding in the background somewhere! That’s his thing right now!

Whatever happens with Disassembled, I will at least check it out. Hopefully the rest of you are more excited than I am.
