I haven't really followed X-Men for years, but it was one of my favorites when I was younger. I wondering what other X-Men and comic fans are thinking given the developments and, as of this posting, current situation for Marvel mutants. One the one hand, I'm excited that there might be a real and sustained shift in the status quo for them, which will have repercussions throughout Marvel's catalogue. It's interesting to me to see this potential shift taking place. On the other hand, I have concerns about the character of Charles Xavier and his portrayal by Jonathan Hickman and his team. For me, some of the best aspects about Xavier has been his optimism in the face of prejudice and longstanding commitment to the idea that mutants and humans could live together, peaceably integrated. The fact that one storyline has allowed him to abandon this ideal in favor of an isolationist mutant homeland nation-state on Krakoa is troubling to me. It puts Xavier more in line with characters like Magneto who have usually been portrayed as antagonistic. This latter development troubles me more than the idea that this change in the status quo might night last because with contemporary comic books, these changes have rarely had lasting impact; I mean, Marvel routinely destroys the universe and builds it back up again with any number of tropes and McGuffins. What's your take on this new state of affairs for mutants and for Charles Xavier?
