I've said it before, so I'll say it again anyways.Bendis is always the only one thinking 2 steps ahead
, and everyone else is only looking to the end of an arc.
Maybe Hickman, but even then I don't think he would be the guy to be asking "What about Xavier?" during all of this. It makes sense Bendis was the only one to really ask that.
I'm glad he's taking over the X-Books. I'm intrigued to see what he brings out of those characters. I hope he lands Darkholme.
