    And even then as more of a set-piece for Gwenpool's character arc than as a character. Hell, the first time they kissed my exact thoughts at the time were "Gwen, no, you deserve better than him!"

    He's gonna be in X-force when House and Powers are over and Hickmans' run officially starts. If he's still with Gwen during that I can probably tolerate him as a supporting piece for a character I like but if Hickman just ignored Gwen's existence then eh.
    However, I thought the point of House of X a reboot so the villain have not actually done those things this time...
    Soft reboot.

    Everything still happened, but there's been a time skip to change the Status quo and a couple of retcons have been made to support the story.

    The X-Men's entire history still happened, but Hickman is only mining it for stories, not defining the X-Men by it.

    In general, you can't reboot part of a Shared universe. Change the X-Men's continuity to a major degree and you screw up the continuity of everything that hasn't been rebooted.

    It's the same reason why they're never gonna undo OMD with Spider-Man: It sucks, but there's too much that's happened since that wouldn't have happened without it and removing that stuff would screw everyone else over.
