    I can already predict what it is.
    It's already been set up with the Avengers 2 movie.
    Mutants will go away.
    But the new term for them will be Inhumans.
    Just as Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver are being called Inhumans in the Avengers 2 movie.
    I assume, this is so that Marvel can create an "X-Men" movie despite Fox currently having the rights - since they won't be mutants anymore.
    Same reason why Quicksilver can appear in X-Men Days Of Future Past, as well as Avengers 2.
    They're going to say it's different characters, in a round about way.
    That's my theory and I am sticking to it.

    God, people are ridiculous. Marvel isn't gonna cancel the X-Men, just like they're not going to cancel the Fantastic Four and they would never cancel Spider-Man just because they don't own the movie rights. Ludicrous rumours.

    Replace the word "cancel", though, with "pause", and re-read your statements again. Think about it, how many times have a character or team or series been "paused", or put on hold, or killed off to be brought back at a later time? Even Wolverine is going to die at last, and presumably be gone for at least a year or so, in order to revive the character. And Peter Parker was killed off, as well. Suddenly, not so ridiculous?

    And, as stated in the article, the question that was asked? it was never directly answered. Why? Why would they not just answer, No?

    That man cannot even attempt to put rumors to rest without being a condescending jerk.
    The sooner they end the X-Men, the sooner HE can stop writing them. Can I get a "THANK GOD"?

    But, I doubt they will CANCEL the X-Men. If anything, it's more like what FP said. It makes absolutely NO business sense for them to completely cancel-FOREVER-the X-Men.

    Because this way we're all talking about it.

    The first 15 issues of his All-New X-Men are REALLY good.

    It was good until BoTA. But even when it was good, it still wasn't great.

    I don't believe for a moment that they're going to cancel the X-Men. Not at all. Too much money there. But reboot the X-Men? Yes. I can see that possibly. And in said reboot, change them from "mutants" to "Inhuman" - I can see that happening as well. They're already doing it, as I said, in Avengers 2, in order to use Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver.

    If by good, you mean, you needed toilet paper, sure.

    Well, weren't Chuck Austen, Greg Land, and Bendis also put in charge of X-Men titles?

    Weren't they called 'Miracles'?
    (Which in no way contradicts your theory, just alters the phrasing a little.)

    Only in, ugh, the Ultimates universe.

    Le Messor, I'm pretty sure that Superior Spider-Man was in the regular Marvel U. I didn't read it, but I am fairly confident that Doc Oc took over Parker's body and life when Parker died.

    No, not bad; just mistaken.
