It was meant to be subversive, obviously. Good write-up explaining what's "wrong" with it here, if you haven't already seen it:

Heaven forbid anyone air out polarizing topics in X-Men. :roll:

I think if the t-shirt hadn't been on Colossus and instead a random background character, he'd still have a job.
The '212' was subversive enough to slide, and the shirt on someone else would've been a minor infraction.
But I don't know or care enough about Indonesian politics to give a shit.

More interesting writing from the lady responsible for Ms. Marvel:

It was apparently a reference to verses of the Q'uran used by militants to oppose a Christian governor or mayor.

I can see why they are changing it. Racism or discrimination is totally not what the X-Men are all about.

Dude was an idiot.

The sad part is, X-Men is a good avenue to discuss issues like that. All he had to do, as a big part of the creative team, is figure out how to express his views through the natural progression of the story. I agree, the sneaky manor in which he did it certainly warranted action from Marvel.

I just started reading the post-IvsX X-books. The Prime oneshot and the Blue and Gold ongoings and.....uhhhmmm...excuse me, X-Men. You can't just plop your mansion down in the middle of Central Park in the middle of fucking Manhattan and be all 'oh hey we live here now'.

What the batty bullshit is that??! Seriously??

Well, since Bleeding Cool spoiled it for me, I'm spoiling it for you guys. But since I'm using spoiler tags, I'm not really spoiling it. Anyway...

Legacy 1 comes out tomorrow and they're bringing back the Original Wolverine who is not Old Man Logan nor Laura Kinney aka All New Wolverine. I could've done without it. He is still a cliched parody of himself and doesn't really add anything to the comics. It's mostly a fanwank decision because sales are in the toilet.
