Magik would've been an infinitely superior character if she just dropped all Mugger nonsense and just hanged around other magical characters.

Magik would've been an infinitely superior character if she just dropped all Mugger nonsense and just hanged around other magical characters. Strange, Wanda, Doom, Morgana, whatever. The vast majority of good X-Characters can't escape the Mugger Ghetto and it hurts them.

    Mutant comics outsold everything but Spidey for decades, and the magical characters you mention have always sold like crap.

      That hasn't been the case for over 20 years. What Marvel was like in the 80s and 90s isn't true anymore.

      OP kind of has a valid point that the X-Men books have a lot of top-tier waifus who are stuck in muh oppression muh metaphor stories when a lot of them would work better in other settings. Maybe Magik would be better off in mystic stories, Jean in cosmic stories, Rogue in Savage Land jungle girl stories, etc.

        Sales charts say otherwise. Even during the inhumans era, the x-book were a steady seller. Here's the thing, if there are still 10 ongoings + mini-series, that means that it sells, otherwise marvel wouldn't be doing it retard.

          Sales charts say most of the X-Men books are settling in the middle or lower half of the top 100, with only a few main books and event minis doing better, and they were doing even worse in the Inhumans era and the years before Hickman. Marvel really are just launching more and more of these things even though they have other stuff that's selling better. If these books were dominating the charts it would make sense to keep launching more of them, but they're not. It honestly seems more like Cebulski is just an old school X-fag whose entire plan to save Marvel is just to keep launching more X-books because it worked in the 80s and 90s.

          No they weren't. They were dropping hard during Bendis' run and after he left kept going down to the 30,000s.

          They're top tier waifus because of how they're drawn and what they wear, not because of anything specific about the X-Men or mutants. Giving them a chance to shine elsewhere would basically be a sideways move now for most of them, but Marvel wouldn't do it because too many people like you would chimp out about it.

    Magik should have more appearances outside the comics. The Midnight Suns has Magik but we need more and more of her presence.

      how about getting midnight sons back first

      Mutants didn't always be about MUH MUTANT RIGHTS. It wasn't always a cheap allegory for racism, it was mostly a cheap way to introduced super-powered characters without explaining how they got their powers.
      they've fought space pirates and demons before.

      >what is magneto's origin story again?

      I still find it funny how she has nothing to do with the magic oriented X-book while randum muggas that have never been near magic do. Can't even say it's for new mutants because she was barely relevant in that.

      this. x-men stories with magic and supernatural are never as good as the other kinds of arcs. showing a dystopian foil like Age of Apocalypse was much more effective because it was political stances against social darwinism instead of generic morals loosely tied to abrahamic dogma

      Teleportation via Stepping Discs

      • 3 weeks ago
        Anonymous

        Opening portals.

        Her portals are linked to Limbo, the Hell Dimension she conquered after being kidnapped there as a child

        Due to the fact that it's not always in sync with Earth time can pass differently there and years can pass there in while seconds pass on Earth.

        Illyana can open stepping disks directly to her destination but if she uses Limbo as a waystation she can pull off a lot of other tricks.
        She can also travel through time with those portals but she has less control than when traveling through space.

    I'd like her at lot more if they made her not a complete piece of shit for a couple of books. Have her be bitchy, fine, that's her thing. But, she usually just comes across as a terrible person, often more than the supposed villain of the arc.

    No, because X-Men > rest of marvel universe. She would be a background character in avengers at best. And considering what happened to Wanda and Strange, I double don't want her to drop ties to x-shit. If anything, she could get a solo ongoing, but it would require some top A-tier writer / artist

            To spell this out for the autist here, I'm not saying "Inhumans and mutant had never met before the 2010s", I'm saying Inhumans were conceptually nothing like mutants until the 2010s.

    It's always funny to me how Magik has been reduced to only use one spell (the sword) yet magikfags will still claim that she should be sorcerer supreme. Especially when she is SS of limbo and does fucking nothing with it. Especially after Bendis jobbed Dormammu to her. That being said joining mystic Marvel would do her no favors since that is dominated by Strange. The rest of the wizards end up as the magic guy on some team tthat doesn't do much magic.

    Because only the X-Men all out to Beaman Aldean metaphors in big comic books maintain continuity? Also you said the X-Men had nothing to do with the Inhumans.That statement I sold to be incorrect. .
