Jordan White Officially Kills #XMenMonday, Launches #XMenTuesday Instead

Finally bowing to pressure from fans and the media, Marvel X-Editor Jordan White has finally posted #XMenMonday previews on Twitter. White refused to post the traditional previews on a Monday for three weeks in a row prior to today’s reversal. But White’s folding comes with a twist; White has declared that #XMenMonday is no more, and from now, previews will be posted on #XMenTuesday instead.

The move allows White, who recently rose to power as a Senior Editor at Marvel shortly after declaring that he could get Bleeding Cool to publish an article about anything he tweets by withholding vital #XMenMonday previews, to claim victory in the #XMenMonday shutdown, which had lasted for three weeks, while still giving in to fan demands. Personally, we’re just glad that White is posting #XMenMonday previews again, even if they are technically #XMenTuesday previews now, as they have become an important part of the comics media click economy, with dozens of entertainment “journalists” relying on the tweets to meet their daily article quotas.

Of course, White did reveal that he may have ulterior motives in changing the day…

We find the assertion that Bleeding Cool is so desperate for clicks that we will publish articles about anything White tweets on multiple days of the week incredibly insulting, and we definitely will not stand for it. Of course, it’s also totally true, but we won’t stand for it either way.

Happy #XMenTuesday, folks!


About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
