What are you looking forward to after X of Swords ends?

>pic related

After X of Swords started getting all memey instead of fights to the death. I stopped caring.

It's over next week.

damn, had no clue honestly. Felt like this shit was just starting, this was terrible.

SWORD looks like it will be fun. Hellions has taught me not to underestimate a cast of literal whos.

I cannot believe what a disappointment X of Swords was. Probably the worst arc Hickman has wrote, inc. his Avengers run. Feel free to point to something worse he wrote.

>>119154047
X-men haven't been good for ages, Hickman's bullshit sucks just as much as the previous garbage and the franchise in unsalvageable

Turning Sinister into a camp drama queen was actually based for his character.

He's still obviously a viscous, dangerous being, but he's also fun.

I haven't seen a tournament arc so disappointing since Kengan Omega

Disagree, he's basically a new character using the name and appearance of Mr Sinister. He's a comedy villain now, and eventually you'll get tired of the joke.
>>
>>119155833
>Turning Mr.Sinister into a weeping villain

I like older X-Men back when sociopathic villains didn't give a shit, even about their own underlings. Hint: He didn't treat the Nasty Boys well at times

>>119156039
Given that he murdered half of those characters himself, I don't think you're meant to be taking it that seriously anon.
>>
>>119156002
Any version of Mr. Sinister that isn't a psychic child using the identity as his villainous persona is a new character just using his name and appearance.

Swords seems to divide people.

Some people love the silly twists, others are pissed at the lack of action, even though most of the X-Men don't even need swords.

If you feel that strongly about it, Claremont, you should have made that origin canon before you left the book without having explained anything about him. The origin he ended up getting is unironically better anyway.

Did he just call someone out for dressing like Jubilee?

Things I'm looking forward to, knowing it won't happen
-everybody stops stabbing each other and goes back to stealth mission adventures.
-Storm's adventures in the landless world of Upper Jupiter. Fighting brood, rescuing Lilandra, enjoying training young female mutant (Not-Lightspeed Power) in the ways of the rainbow.
-Jubilee leading a cult of mall rats in an abandoned mall. Rescued from poverty or not-Apex, finally living the life they wanted. Now how do you get Jubilee to stop stealing bitcoin from Friends of Humanity and go back to X-Men?
-Magic gets a three ish of a John Wick style adventure across Limbo City with Ghost Rider to regain the Belasco Throne. Brutal fights, murder, mudwrestling semi-goat maidens, Sym and N'astrith being bastards, and a fistfight with a sentient bag of money.
-Reopening the Westchester School after the latest "everything went wrong and we're back to square one", and how bad is it this time?
-Morlocks invade Fortnight. Morlocks win.
-Remy starts a cooking show called "Veiled taunts and gumbo." It runs for 12 episodes on Mojoverse.
-Xavier's next super wheelchair.

Just proving you're retarded. Those are some of the best selling comics of all time which is why they cost 10 cents a pop now. Six figure units shipped. This is hardly reaching 70K.
>>
>>119164457
but there was action? there were fights? what are you even complaining about?
and there is going to be a final massive fight that will probably result in the final showdown between two islands? if you don't like it, that's fine, but stop being a bitter faggot that it isn't a classic tournament. For that, it would probably need to be 50 parts long

Remember when the X-men was basically a super powered soap opera. About people who despite their strange gifts strived to live normal lives while fighting for the greater good and being shinning examples for their cause. Remember when their was still a glimmer of hope and some semblance of happiness and unity as they banded together, not as a paramilitary, but as a group of real friends and family, comrades who confided, consoled and leaned on each other to give them strength and happiness in their darkest hours.

>He's a comedy villain now, and eventually you'll get tired of the joke.
The self-serious Sinister was tired too, and only a handful of writers (Claremont, Milligan, Nicieza, Carey, maybe Tieri) ever wrote him well. This comedic Sinister seems to be easier to write, which is welcome considering the consistently inconsistent nature of cape writers.

>he's basically a new character using the name and appearance of Mr Sinister.
Yes and no. The elements present in Gillen's retooled Sinister were present already, but with Moore-like ambition, Gillen took them further and had them better reflect the philosophical underpinnings that Sinister contained, then used that to discuss the philosophies of the 19th century, which is of course discussing the 21st.
Much of what Gillen's Sinister subscribed to is still part of the discourse: 'scientific' racism; the reductionism and determinism inherent in the economics of austerity; the reification of society by elite members and theorists alike in order to justify the concentration of advantage into the hands of the few; the rejection of the rights of the many in favor of the supposedly society-strengthening virtues of the elite.
By placing Essex in a mock-Victorian setting while accentuating the horrors which his ideology inspires, Gillen succeeded in emphasizing how regressive and reactionary are the lords and masters of modern day, who justify so many of their decisions with reference to disturbingly similar Victorian values. What clearly made no sense at all in moral and logical and practical terms in the context of 1851 surely makes even less in the now of some nearly two centuries later.

Devoid of that context, what's left is the Sinister we see now, though with the comedic elements turned up. It feels hollow because it is: only his surface characteristics have been carried forward. There's no thematic depth because the story doesn't call for it and/or because the current writers didn't pick up on it.

I think he should be redeemed.
Beast was a bit like Rousseau in that he had/reflected a mixture of Enlightenment and Romantic ideals. That is, while he relied on rationality, he did not neglect feelings and emotions. This was in clear contrast to Sinister, who represented pure rationality- and all the moral perils that purity brings.
Beast has slid towards Sinister's end of the spectrum, which I don't object to. What I would object to is if they kept him there. We already have Sinister, there is no need for Beast to also occupy that ideological space and be another static character. Instead, he should be another example of Man's capacity to change for the better. The X-Men have a long history of redeeming their villains, and Beast-while not officially a villain-should be allowed to follow that redemptive arc. It shouldn't be quick, it should not be easy. Dude needs to take a good, hard look at himself and make the decision to be better and atone for what he's done. That makes for the more interesting story, I think.

Exactly. They don't have many options. Their home nations could jail them at any time too, but at least on Krakoa they're mostly free from material concerns. There's no wage slavery, healthcare is vastly better, there's constant orgies, alcohol flows freely, housing is not a commodity, immortality of a sort is available, etc.
