>>78941673 X-Factor. Any forward development of the entire franchise of the last ~15 years gets shafted so the writers can pretend like the O5 ever mattered or were an interesting team. Fuck that. It retconned the fucking Phoenix Saga. Why would you ever consider retconning one of your most iconic stories even partially? Let alone actually do it?
I'd say that Marvel's almost instant retconning of Morrison's run, and regression of the X-Men back into tights and spandex as seen in Austen's X-Men and Whedon's Astonishing is the worst thing that's ever happened to the X-Franchise.
There was such vital room for growth and exploration of Mutants in a whole new thematic light, allowing for genuine development in story and message to something more than just a thin racism analogue. We could've gotten more than just X-Statix taking advantage of this stage if Marvel let it flourish after Grant left, but nope, they had to tear it all back down.
