Previous Post having said we'll probably never see them: they don't really exist, not in 'our reality,' not in the MU.

Not if we don't see them, not if they're not ALL introduced.

And the Order just got cancelled. So much for the Order.

And what, really, would be the purpose of introding 50 full teams when Marvel can barely handle its few 'regular' titles and franchises now, and keep them straight?

We have scores of villains with 0 characterization, a bunch of whining, potty-joke-telling heroes, and one million boring, de-powered non-mutants mucking up the landscape, to say nothing of all the skrulls... do we really need 50 teams to further muck up a landscape which Marvel has almost totally lost control of? chances are, if they are created, they, too, will have 0 characterization and exist only nominally.

No thanks.

Claremont, Stern, Byrne, Johns, Carey, Brubaker (who is tanking on Uncanny in my opinion)...these writers could perhaps pull it off under another CEO.

But Bendis, Millar, and Ellis, under JQ? What I get from them is a sense of arrogance and contempt for the reader, and little more.

The Order got cancelled because Fraction and Kitson were moving on to other projects (Fraction on INVINCIBLE IRON MAN and Kitson on AMAZING SPIDER-MAN), so they decided to cancel the book rather than let Marvel take their group in an unwanted direction. Otherwise, the book would still be around.
