Uncanny X-Men writer Matthew Rosenberg, Mr. and Mrs. X writer Kelly Thompson, and Marvel Comics Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski have all weighed in on Jonathan Hickman's announcement of the cancellation of the X-Men line ahead of Hickman's House of X and Powers of X.

Rosenberg confirmed Uncanny X-Men #22 would be his final issue on the title, saying that the cancellation and relaunch have been in the cards all along.

Meanwhile, Mr. and Mrs. X writer Kelly Thompson echoed Rosenberg's statements, saying she was "lucky to be in the room" while the upcoming relaunch developed.

Marvel E-i-C Cebulski also weighed in on the relaunch, saying that every X-title from the previous "color" themed books through the most recent relaunch of Uncanny X-Men in November 2018 has been building to Hickman's plans.

House of X #1 is due out July 24, followed by Powers of X #1 on July 31.
