Jonathan Hickman Calls X-Men Continuity “Random Unconnected Gibberish”

Posted by June 25, 2019 Comment

In just one month, superstar writer Jonathan Hickman will team with artists Pepe Larraz and R.B. Silva to relaunch the X-Men. But it seems that Hickman views the job as a massive undertaking, as he took to Twitter Monday to refer to X-Men continuity as “some nonsense.”

“There are no rules here,” Hickman said of the continuity of the greatest franchise in comics history. “There is no order. Just random unconnected gibberish.”

Hickman’s complaint garnered support from fellow X-Men writers, such as Zac Thompson, one of the masterminds behind the current Age of X-Man event.

As well as longtime X-writer Fabian Nicieza:

It looks like Hickman is hoping to turn things around with his upcoming relaunch, claiming to have written “5,000 words on when someone can, and cannot, utter the phrase ‘Omega Level.'” Presumably, Hickman has invented a bunch of symbols and created elaborate charts about it too, because it’s what he does, though he hasn’t explicitly said so.

In addition to trashing X-Men continuity, in the past few days Hickman also fat-shamed legendary musician Glenn Danzig, expressed a desire to coat the nude body of fellow Marvel writer Jason Aaron in cocaine at an upcoming Marvel creative summit, and admitted ambivalence about the possible death of Marvel Senior Editor Jordan White.

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.
