What the New Normal of The X-Men Could Mean for Comics as a Whole

It’s sort of strange to be a fan of comic books these days. For reference, I was ten years old when Iron Man hit theaters. So from age zero to about eleven, it was considered wildly uncool for me to wear a shirt with the Justice League on it or play with any superhero toys that weren’t Spider-Man or Batman. I did those things anyway, and I did read comics, albeit sporadically (I was not a financially secure child).
