Earlier today saw rumor that Marvel Comics is going to eliminate the X-Men, Wolverine and mutants from the Marvel Universe as a result of a reboot and reported clash with Fox Studios.
Now All-New X-Men writer Brian Michael Bendis has taken to his Tumblr page to address the rumors:
Somebody somewhere for whatever reason, be it a lack of attention at home, frustration with their own life, whatever it is that motivates such things, completely pulls something right out of their ass and posted it on the Internet.
and sometimes, no matter how outlandish the claim, no matter how many people point to the lack of logic, no matter how much evidence there is to the contrary… some people choose to believe it.
I was told when I started writing the X-Men that there is a very small part of the readership that feels very persecuted. that no matter what Marvel does these readers think that marvel hates the X-Men with a fiery passion and are looking to destroy it.
and this goes back way before movies or cartoons, this goes waaaay back, so even though the best artists on the planet and franchise writers have been put in charge of this very important part of the Marvel universe some people still think that Marvel is out to blow its own foot off.
why THAT happens I cannot tell you. it just does.
but, without any kind of spoilers, something exciting is coming next summer. definitely. for sure. for the marvel universe and the X-Men which happen to be one and the same thing and have been for 50 years
EDIT: I just looked up what reboot means,
uh, never mind :)
