It's been half a week and I'm still furious about retconning Franklin into not being a mutant. Why is Marvel like this??? Hickman's been setting up Franklin being pivotal for over a year, they just did a miniseries about Franklin's role as a mutant AND a member of the FF.
And then Slott comes running in with hs writers block because "powerful characters are lame!" and decides Franklin just wished he was an oppressed minority to get attention and made it come true with his reality altering powers.
This the first time there's real meaty storytelling opportunities for that brat and Marvel's like naw dog, he's just a mopey teen now. And Slott turning his twitter feed into Stalingrad is making things even worse.
I feel like this decision had to be okayed by Hickman? Like, it's one thing to have Franklin off in the FF books and not in the X-Books, but to have him mutant gene retconned is another thing entirely. It's Slott so I don't want to give him the benefit of the doubt, and it wouldn't be the first time the nature of superhero comics have fucked Hickman over, but this seems to be way too major for it not to be approved by Hickman.
