Time for yet another batch of shadowy reveals in Marvel's "Choose Your Team" teaser. We saw this same batch a couple days ago with the "gold" team but now five more are stepping into the light. As with yesterday's reveal for more of the "blue" team, some are as expected. But, there is indeed one that has me pretty excited.

Starting backwards on the right, X-Factor has a couple more members revealed. I believe that's Rictor, right? Still no sign of Madrox. And M is still with the team so that's good. Rogue's team has no surprises so far with Gambit and Frenzy. Who's behind them? The one that makes me happy is Kitty Pryde and Lockheed on Wolverine's team. Makes sense but, what does this say that Colossus (with the power of Juggernaut) is on Scott/Emma's Uncanny X-Men team (with her former best friend Magik)? Guess we'll find out in October. The odd addition here is Toad. What the heck is he doing here? Is he on Wolverine's team or X-Force? Looks to be Wolverine's which is surprising that he would tolerate him.

== TEASER ==

We'll see if there's more reveals on Monday. It is Labor Day so it's unclear whether another batch will be released. We'll see.

Again, here's who will be working on each book. Be sure to let your local comic shop know which books you want on your pull list.

Is that Toad on X-Force or X-Men?

#2 Posted by G-Man (30674 posts) - - Show Bio

@Dernman: It's gotta be X-Men (Wolverine). If you look at the top, you see Jason Aaron's name. That's where the break in the image would be. Seems kinda weird.

Toad? Really? Urgh. 
 
Pleased to see that Monet's still on X-Factor, but I really do hope that Madrox is still alive (and in X-Factor).

Having Iceman side with Logan over Scott seems to be writer-determined, a bit of a shame. 
 
Legacy and X-Factor look nice so far.

@G-Man: Your right and it is weird. It's something different though. Who know with this random addition we might get something unexpectedly good.

Is there any reason he wouldn't be? Has it been alluded to that he'll die? O_o

This is such a major disappointment, i really wanted Prodigy to be on Rogues team instead of Frenzy.

I know it doesn't really matter but is Toad still missing his finger from when he lost it in Second Coming?

#9 Posted by EnSabahNurX (2313 posts) - - Show Bio

O_O since when can Psylocke levitate? That's all Ive been thinking since seeing the x-force cover 
 
Toad is DEFINITELY on Wolverne and the x-men but i could care less about him lol They haven't revealed anything i didn't guess aside from toad and lockheed(forgot about him) 
 
I just want to know if that's really Psylocke or someone meant to mislead(gen hope cover 17 shows her on cykes team), who is the girl behind rogue and frenzy(Rachel??), and who is the girl flying behind wolverine(polaris?)

#11 Posted by pspin (891 posts) - - Show Bio

Think its good that Toad is there because now we are getting a more diverse cast instead of the same five people in every book. I just hope they leave X-23 out of all of this, the ongoing is just to good.

Nah, mate, they realised that I would send everyone involved in the project to Hell if they did that, so he's in Uncanny with Emma. 
#14 Posted by Backflip (2256 posts) - - Show Bio

Toad? What was Aaron thinking... 
 
I like Kitty being on Wolverine's team, she should have a good interaction with the likes of Bobby (Am I the only one hoping for a hook-up? :P ) 
 
Also I was worried that Monet was getting offed for a minute, but her prescence is a big delight to me. I presume someone is in front of Guido's form, probably Madrox or Polaris. No real surprises with Legacy yet, but I'm still unsure of the final character on that line up.

#15 Posted by longbowhunter (6810 posts) - - Show Bio

Glad to see M is still with X-Factor. And I knew that would be Rictor up front. Where the hell is Longshot and Madrox? I'm really nervous as to what Peter David has in store for us in issue #230

Would this be a good time to jump into X-Men ?

#19 Posted by MYX (9 posts) - - Show Bio

My guesses for the shadowy characters:  
X-Force: Psylocke and Fantomex (pretty sure) 
Team Wolvie: Rachel, Meltdown/Wisdom/Hellion and Beast (wild guesses, it seams more like Havok, Polaris and AOA Sabertooth) 
Legacy: Surge
X-Factor: I really wish that Madrox and Polaris are in front of Guido. I'm sure there's someone in front of him.
I'm kind of disapointed with no new/young X-men beeing anywhere! So I hope Suge is in Legacy. I'd like to see Mercury or Hellion somewhere! I like Toad and he has been underused but I't prefer Anole in his place...

Are "they" killing him off? I'd say no. Is "Wolverine" killing him off? Maybe.  
Why do you assume the writers are killing him off. Its the characters that kill other characters off. Don't blame the writers.

 Man, where in the hell are the New X-men? Surge, Hellion, Anole, Rockslide, Elixer, etc are all great characters. It would suck if they end up as back ground characters again,
 
Which ever writer said Wolverine's team would be the most diversive is probably right lol. I've got no problem with Toad. As long as he's a good addition to the team, I'm fine with it.  The other reveals are the ones I'm interested in the most in anyway.
 
I'm glad Ice Man is Wolverine's team. He hasn't been important in the slightest in a while for some reason. It's frustrating since he's one of the very first X-Men . This may put him higher in relevancy which if great.
 
Legacy is looking good. It wouldn't surprise me if Rachel is the last hidden team member.
 
X-Force with out a doubt is going to be quality regardless of a new member. 
 
Anybody notice how most of the quality books are on Wolverine's side? Uncanny and Generation Hope are good while the New Mutants and X-Men are average.

I knew it was Rictor. -.-

Don't get me wrong, love that guy and the way Peter David writes him. But C'mon! Madrox better not be ditched in favor of Havok. That'd ruin my X-Factor :(

On the other hand, I have trouble believing the obvious silhouette of Guido is only Guido. There has to be someone in front of him, similar to how Cyclops's silhouette was hidden by Danger and Emma's silhouettes. Under Shatterstar you see a slender shadow that looks like someones foot or the end of a trench coat ;)

Plus, Layla is still on the team...I can't imagine she'd be there and not Madrox.

Also, interesting result, obviously a fallout between Colossus and Kitty over his becoming the Juggy demon thing... :P

really sure for psylocke in X-force?
the shadow in X-force looks like AoA Blink too (even if it seems she wield two sword)
have psylock in X-force and blue X-men seem weird to me  (even if the x-force remain secret)

@AgeofHurricane: Your right man.  I didn't want to make my list  long. Prodigy was one of my favorites. 
 
I just don't understand the logic of having all these villains join the X-Men while leaving out the majority of the New X-Men. It just doesn't make any sense. 
 
Seriously people, how many villains do the X-Men have left? It's not like it was a while ago when we had a lot of  mutants around. Unless these creators and writers have a creative spark and create some legitimate and compelling villains for the X-Men to face years to come, I will never like the idea of villains joining the X-Men.

In Fear itself (apparently, I haven't read it myself) since Colossus became a "monster" he's broken up with Kitty. =(

Ditto. 
I was going to comment that it was him in the cover, but then I slapped myself across the face, to spare you the trouble. And yeah, I hope he is, though it doesn't seem that way -.-

That's what I'm partly doing. I've been kind of in the on and off, since its been kinda bad up till now. I'm jumping on the bandwagon from head to toe this time. (And yes, I just made that up from two different popular phrases. Deal with it :P)

Still no Madrox on the X-Factor team? Is Havok going to replace him as the team leader? Or is that big shadow obviously belonging to Strong Guy just hiding his silhouette? I really like Madrox, but it would be interesting to see what happens to X-Factor if he died or left. Either way, I'm looking forward to X-Factor mainly because I trust Peter David and his ability to keep it awesome.
 
I knew that those two shadows behind Rogue had to belong to Gambit and Frenzy, but the one that remains unrevealed puzzles me. Right now, my only guess is that it's Marvel Girl/Rachel Summers, but I really can't tell. Anyways, I like that the Legacy team is small, and that Magneto doesn't seem to be on it (at least I'm desperately hoping so). 
  
Wolverine's team is turning out to be one of the most random selection of characters out of all of these new line-ups. I get why Kitty is there, but Toad, seriously? I have no idea who the rest of these characters are going to be. Maybe that's Beast behind there, but I have no idea who the flying person might be.

One of the most interesting things about this divide is that Kitty and Colossus are now on opposite sides. I'm wondering whether that means that they're going to face some sort of a personal conflict, or if it's just that circumstances are going to force them to choose different sides. I'm curious where they stand as a couple after this. 

#42 Edited by nftw (23 posts) - - Show Bio

This sounds more absurd than toad but is the shadow behind Wolverine Kid Omega? 
 
@papad1992 if you look closer it is actually his hands cuped together with his fingers pointed out "hand gun 'bang' "

The solicit for November's issue of X-Factor states that "a member of X-Factor will die". We know it's not going to be Monet, Siryn, Wolfsbane, Rictor, Layla or Shatterstar as they've already been shown to be part of that book by January's cover. Given the two silhouettes it's likely not Guido or Banshee, meaning that leaves Longshot, Madrox and Pip. Really hope it's Pip who dies and not Longshot or Madrox. If it's between Madrox and Longshot, however, I'd want Madrox to survive. 
 
And, with regard to your Iceman comment….. I'm not sure how I feel. But Scott's X-Men certainly feels less heroic. In fact, it seems that, aside from a few characters (Magneto, Emma and Cyclops), I much prefer the mutants on Wolverine's side.   

Side-note: Haha @ Colossoanaught. He looks ridiculous. Redundant helmet. The demonic power should have changed the colour of his metal, not given him a helmet which was initially used by Marko to block out telepath's thoughts.

Ah ok. I hope it's not Madrox, he's the only X-Factor member that I really like, though my knowledge on them all is very superficial.  
 
I was sold on Uncanny as soon as I saw Scott; Emma and Mags being there is just gravy for me. Though I do agree with you that Logan's side has the better characters (aside from the above three, who are the best X-Men characters, imo). Probably deliberate though, to make sure the Logan-detractors still pick it up.  
 
Colossonaut is just silly.

@EnSabahNurX: I don't think it's a gun, it looks like he's making that shape with his hand. 
 
To me, it looks like Madrox and Polaris are in front of Guido, Longshot is dead, Rachel (with a new costume) is the one in the background in Legacy and the one flying with all the fire is Oya.
