Nerys Myk lost me with his 'Reboots have been going on since stories first existed, back before they were called reboots'
Whats so confusing about that? People have been rewriting stories and creating new continuities for old characters since humans began telling stories. That's only been called a "reboot" in that last few decades.
New continuities aren't reboots aren't retcons', so I'm done with that.
Never said that. All I said is Ultimate X-men isn't quite a reboot because it didn't replace the old X-Men continuity. It exists parallel to the original continuity.
I'd still like to know how the Astonishing X-Men and the Bronze Age qualify as reboots.
