The role he plays on a team has been his identity, and there isn't a team today that really suits him. It's time for him to go out on his own and let the audience discover who he is when his decisions aren't influenced by a team. Am I on the right track?

Choosing that path may mean that you've resigned the miracle of your resurrection to a cycle and continuance of a mission that already impaled you, buried you, fumed and feuded at your funeral and now recalls you nostalgically or tragically as an impossible vestige of hope, faith and reconciliation
to use Kitty Pryde's prepubescent bedtime story BAMF's as the portal to which Kurt will return to life is basically saying that THIS MAN... this Kurt Wagner - is kid's stuff... make-believe... good fun... a fuzzy blue jester... a hardy har har sidebar to the outrageous brooding of the X schisms...
or do you (b) make a break of for it... a bold jaunt... and try a different path... and if that path leads you back through were you've been - so be it... but getting there by way of a fate that's made rather than heaped upon you would make it all different...Kurt's always been unsure and sure at the same time, and his doubts have driven him compulsively into (in my opinion) poorly written and unfortunate sacrifices that supposedly 'mean something' but don't.
So why not let the other side of Kurt Wagner come through.
Why not grant him access to his faith in himself and to the very redeeming fountain of hope that others have sapped him for?
I see that Jason Aaron is already leaving Amazing X-Men, what does that mean?
That's a big part of what it means to grow up. To be an individual.

They are way cuter in AXM than they ever were in WatXM, where they were revealed to be "interdimensional hell beasts" and almost got their origin revealed by an alien zoologist.
sungila wrote:Kurt was 18 when he joined the team. He's been pulled around by the team for so long that he may not have ever had a chance to really grow up and discover himself. He's been through phases and experiments, but where did they really leave him? Confused, I'd say. His stay in the afterlife is probably the longest he's spent off a team since he joined the X-Men
sungila wrote:Okay, forgive me, I guess now I'm going to have to read Jason Aaron's W&XM trades, I set against it, but I've been gradually getting more and more curious - feeling like the issue summaries I read weren't enough...now I'm pretty sure that I need to suffer through any possible misgivings I have about having to endure the bazillion kiddie mutants...the crappy forced AvX plotlines...and the wasted use of characters as babysitters who deserve better situations (ie Rachel).
Besides, I've enjoyed Amazing X-Men so much and now I feel like I'm really missing out not reading first hand how Aaron built things up.
Wahnsinn and UltSpidey, you two come at your reading from such polar albeit equally ingenious, positive and unique perspectives. The convergence really piques my curiosity and makes my own reading far more rife with possibility and wonder. I learn a lot from you two and marvel at the sparks of your collisions.
If that's how it is I'm sooo happy to be wrong!
Yea, I gotta read about these revamped little crawlers...cause maybe they're an extension of the 'real thing' now...and not just, well, you know....what Amanda kept for comfort while her Kurt was away.
Just saying this here because I feel like THAT is a good example of what could and does seperate Kurt from the pack. And THAT sort of story, stories like that really could fuel a solo comic for a very long and indefinitely amazing adventurous time
