  1. While the second half of Carey’s run was kind of fluid in its focus, it can’t be denied that for his entire run, he had some of the best character-centric X-stories. Not only that, but he truly created the definitive Rogue run of issues, since good X-issues featuring her were spotty at best.

    Carey’s time on this series will be sorely missed by me. It’s something I really took for granted, since the second half of his run was very understated. Like I mentioned before, I always thought that the overall structure of the book’s direction was lacking, but one thing that made me appreciate this series was that it did indeed focus on a small group of core characters as the other series progressed. It really helped build them up into stronger characters (Rogue, especially) so that the next writer will have a solid platform to launch on.

    • I fully agree with this. Carey’s run on this book has to be on the short list of the best X-Men runs. This book can definitely be considered a “Rogue” book even when she wasn’t the focus and he really made her, Xaviar, and even Gambit and Frenzy a little more focused then they had been in rescent years. I really will miss him not matter how uneven the last year or so it has been.

      Plus, I have to say his original team that included Rogue, Cable, Cannonball, Iceman, Mystique, and Sabertooth had to be one of the most interesting combinations in any X-Men roster.

    • That original team was so superb. Shame it had to come to a close after Messiah Complex.

  2. Kudos to Carey. A run this long is rare these days and he did some really good stuff on this book. It’s hard to believe it’s been going on this long.
