Well, I suppose it’s official, now? X-Man is officially an X-Man, after 15 odds years of being an “associate." He’ll be joining Blade, the Savage She-Hulk and Spidey in the ranks of unconventional super-people who can finally proclaim, “We are the X-Men!” Although, ironically, X-Man’s probably the one with the best claim to membership, yet.  Actually, I think it’s clear, now, that when people look back on 2010, they’re going to regard as the year-of-unconventional-line-ups-that-were-announced-one-character-at-a-time.  Seriously… the Avengers, the Secret Avengers, the Avengers Academy Image even got in on the game with both the faux Guardians of the Globe and the real ones.  I’m not arguing though. It's definitely working at turning heads.

You know, when I happened upon a big stack of Age of Apocalypse comics recently and got reacquainted with Mr. Nate Grey, I was reminded of how I think he should seriously get the award for most the most convoluted character in comics. See, Cable’s understood to have a pretty convoluted life story already, right? You’d think Stryfe was more convoluted because he’s the evil clone of Cable, and that’d be true. But X-Man… well... he’s the younger, alternate-reality version of Cable, adding two more complications to an already long list.  

Either way, he’s an X-Man, now. So rejoice!

YAY NATE!
 
Yet u failed to mention the Vampire Jubilee....

Why does Jubilee look like a Vampire? It does explain why Blade is there though.

I wouldn't even call X-man an associate of the X-men.  He's hated the X-men since day one.

#8 Posted by CATMANEXE (17052 posts) - - Show Bio

cool. i dont see the (?) part though. he was recently captured by Norman Osborn.
given Norman loses his seat of power by Heroic Age, that would set Nate free.

Why does X-man still not have a costume?

#14 Posted by The_Martian (36984 posts) - - Show Bio
@KRYPTON :  He has an "X" belt buckle. Isn't that good enough for you? :P

Awesome, about time.

I kind of think that Cable might die in second coming and Nate is going to fill his role. Just an idea

#17 Posted by the_fallen11 (636 posts) - - Show Bio

Heck yes!! I love Nate I'm good with this addition.

I'm just not getting this line-up.  Are they just pulling names out of a hat?

Agreed. X-Man is a cool character, all the way through, and that re-imagining of his suit for Dark X-Men was great.

Aren't you all jumping to conclusions, a little? Maybe Jubilee just started shopping at Hot Topic?

Pffft, Sentry and Beyonder are way more convoluted. Also, half of the heroes in the DCU. Not a knock on DC, but they've been really heavy on the retcons and convolution of characters for some years now.
 
I'm glad X-Man is going to be featured somewhere, in some capacity. I was worried he would just disappear again after Dark X-Men. I'd also much rather see Mimic with the X-Men than Blade, Spider-Man, Lyra, Elektra, or even Jubilee (should have stayed Wondra).

X-Man was a member of an interim team of X-Men during the shattering when Wolverine was replaced with a Skrull. I say that counts as much as other X-Men who were only around for a short period like Maggott or Marrow.

#35 Posted by Pez85 (205 posts) - - Show Bio

@Tmul501:
That's pretty much what I was thinking. That might make for an interesting take on Cyclops. Losing and gaining the same person (sorta) all in one day.

Yup, X-Man was part of the line-up in the 3-issue Astonishing X-Men series from 1999. Probably some other issues also, but that's what immediately came to mind.

Sure but then there's also what Marvel.com has to say about it: 

"When The Scarlet Witch said 'No more mutants,' bubblegum-chewing X-gal jubilee found out just how bad life can get. She's de-powered and depressed. But is the world done with Ms. Jubilation Lee?"

Nate will die from lack of service at restaurants.

A soon as Blade got involved I KNEW we'd have vamps running around...didn't foresee Jubes getting nipped in the neck though. Good god girl, use a wet nap! I wonder if MI:13 is gonna get all up in this Heroic Age hooba-joo.

Well I am going to knock on DC like I've been knocking on Marvel for killing off someone practically every year. 
 
You want convoluted?   
 
Just look at Superman
 
- His foster parients died, and then they came back to life without knowledge they were dead   
- He went from just lifting buildings, to moving entire planets, to later just moving mountains  
- He had new powers like being able to see when people die, but was never mentioned ever again
- The Fortress of Solituted never existed, and then later actually made that it really existed
- As Clark he went from wearing glasses, to not wearing glasses, back to wearing glasses again 
- Krypto never existed, and then existed again 
- Lana Lang knew about Clarks powers, then she never really did 
- Superboy became an entirely different being with no history of him being in Smallville ever existed   
- Teenage Clark as Superboy in the Legion of Superheroes never existed, but then it actually did
- Lex Luthor and Clark Kent were classmates in Smallville, and then they were not anymore (wait til I get to Lex's story) 
- Superman was feared by Metropolis (kind of like X-Men's people fearing mutants) and not seen as a hero but later erased 
 
And that's only the top of my head.  Want more?  Read Supergirl.
 
Please Marvel... don't do this with Spider-man.

Wha's the deal with Jubs being a vampire?!! I figured since Nate's comeback he would have a greater role in mutant affairs. Although I wish they would get that man some shoes. :oP

Is this part a joke? Spider-Man has one of the most convoluted character histories at Marvel as is, and they're screwing with it some more with O.M.I.T.

I meant, "Please Marvel, stop doing this with Spider-man."

 

Before BND, Spider-man was ok, now he's like part of the DCU.  He should guest star on the next Infinite Crisis story.

now that I think about they could make a very valid excuse for Spider-man moving to San Francisco....he's been black listed by every paper in New York and JJJ fired him from his job with the Mayor's office....where else is he supposed to go?
