Grant Morrison’s final arc of New X-Men was the futuristic “Here Comes Tomorrow,” but after his last issue much of what the writer had done in his three years on the title was shuffled out, leaving readers wondering where had “tomorrow” gone?
Truth be told, Morrison introduced a number of outside-the-box ideas during his 40-plus issues on New X-Men, and it would’ve been difficult for any publisher to juggle them all. Some concepts, such as Emma Frost joining the primary X-team and Jean Grey being written out of the picture, have proven permanent. But others, such as the X-Corps and characters like Xorn and Beak, have largely been written out of existence.
In recent months some characters, like Quentin Quire and Fantomex, have been dusted off for use in X-Men: Schism and Uncanny X-Force, but by and large Marvel has had difficulty coming to terms with Morrison’s additions to the X-Men franchise. Here’s a quick list of some Morrison-era New X-Men morsels that could (and should) be brought back to the fore come X-Men: Regenesis.
