I quite enjoyed this series when it was running.

I agree. It was over-the-top and goofy, but it had a certain charm which really worked for it more often than not. Probably that feeling that everything was one step away from going kablooey.

As did I. It was a lot of fun. And to me, Wolverine always works best when he's in a mentor role. So having that writ large to a whole school instead of just girl sidekick of the decade worked out well.

All these years later and that brochure still is the funniest thing I've ever read in a comic.

Diction and Linguistics with Professor Rogue made me laugh pretty hard

Aaron is a pretty good X-Writer as long as he stays away from Cyclops or the Cyke/Wolvie pissing contest, especially lost AvX. This was a fun series though. Lots of good art in it, too.

But, shit, why dies everyone keep referencing baseball as if it happened all the damn time. I'm rereading Claremonts Uncanny and over fifty issues in, they've played baseball once. I know they play it a few more times, but in 17 years pretty sure it'd a handful at most, but then it starts getting referenced in 90s a lot and then played more and then referenced more and people blame Claremont.

It's pretty stupid to act as if it's a thing, per se. It was huge to comics READERS, but not the characters themselves. When it first appeared back in the lat 1970s, it wasn't the sort of thing you saw superheroes was a uniquely X-men thing and the way it was handled (especially as early in the run as it was) stood out. It was an iconic moment during the early Claremont run.

But, fans/writers being what they are, it's become like the 'hope you survive the experience' line, which has been used and re-used SO MUCH that you actually have the Stepford Cuckoos making a joke about it being a cliche on-panel. Further, other writers have leaned in to the joke in different ways...the best use of it as a callback was in 'Captain Britain and MI-13', where the team plays cricket. Having Wolverine talk about it here feels a little on-the-nose for me, but I get what Aaron was shooting for, here.

Man, I loved the Blue&Gold era of X-Men comics. Gillen's Uncanny and Aaron's Wolverine were my two favorite books at the time. Felt like the X-Books finally stopped floundering around aimlessly. Wish it would have lasted longer.
