    Can’t wait. Love the book…

    Speaking of which… just noticed it wasn’t in the November Solicits. Replaced by Weapon X: First Class instead. Please don’t tell me that this is the end of X-Men: First Class. I’m hoping and praying that it’s just a hiatus while Weapon X: First Class is running to give you some time off while you work on Agents of Atlas.

    I knew the superobservant Beast would be the first to notice! What could this mean? Is something up with XFC?

    As long as the book isn’t cancelled…

    It’s the one spot of joy in the sea of depression and angst of the modern X-Books for many of us. Especially fans of the O5.

    Very interesting Mr. Parker…

    2) Will you guys ever tackle past “major” events in these “First Class” books? For example, would you take an event like “Onslaught” or the first appearance of Apocalypse and give it a new perspective (if you were writing about that time frame)?

    Jeff, will you always be staying in these early years in “First Class?” Do you think you’ll ever reach the period when Beast gets fuzzy or Warren becomes Archangel?

    Jeff Parker: Npeters, funny you should ask that. Very funny. Very, very funny. Okay, maybe it’s not that funny, but developments are coming very soon that you’ve touched upon here.

    Sounds like a bit of serendipity, which is something Frederico was pondering too.

    Do you ever look at present events of the X-books and plan stories that will seem serendipitous with what’s currently going on? For example, have the First Class kids go to San Francisco? Or have Wolverine meet the woman that will eventually give birth to Daken?

    JP: Usually no, but in the upcoming “Halloween Giant-Size Issue,” of “XFC” does do that for a change. We set up something that is going on in the [Marvel Universe] right now.
