    These anthologies are very X-Men Unlimited-ish. More vignettes than stories a lot of the time. Both of the X-related stories were perfectly fine. Of the two I preferred the Storm story but that's probably influenced by the fact she's my favourite X-Man and I really like Alitha Martinez's art.

    I do wonder why Domino was chosen for this anthology as she doesn't really fit the theme of heroes of colour. She's black in the Deadpool movies so maybe they asked the writers to pitch a story about a black character and they only knew the movie version.

    Onto your discussion about the sales charts. I do still find that interesting but really the key information is how the books are performing relative to each other. It doesn't really matter if a book goes up or down the rankings as that can happen without any increase or decrease in sales as it may just be that DC released more Batman books that month. It would be more interesting if say New Mutants starts selling better than Wolverine.

    The main takeaway is that we need more people to buy Marauders and Hellions. I don't want to see those books cancelled. I also imagine that there must be a lot of completionists out there buying X-Men and not reading it because it really doesn't deserve to be the best seller most of the time.
