I don't get Amor's appeal.

Actually, Armor's the only part of this team that makes sense to me.

Admittedly, I mostly like her from Whedon's run. It's too bad that (other than the Alpha & Omega mini series) they haven't done much with her in a while. Aaron should've added her to the main cast of WatX-men, in my opinion.

Hisako is one of the best.

yeah. She seems like she should be a bigger character than she is by now.

@FernandoGrey: I think if I was going to make a team out of characters who go especially well with Wolverine, it would be something like this:

@dangallant984: Pixie ? Everyone else is perfect (even though i'd add one or two) but why's she there ?

Because, Wolvie doesn't have enough sidekicks. More Wolverine sidekicks is a must...

But honestly I don't really mind, I think it could work from a character development point of view and I think with that as the focus that would be an awesome roster. Though, that better not be AoA Kurt... >_>

haha! it's not.

I'll admit, she's the biggest stretch, but I've always liked their relationship, and with the rest of this group she just seemed to make sense.

@AgeofHurricane: so who would you add?

@dangallant984: Domino and Warpath...and Elixir, that one-shot issue of himself and Wolverine going over to track some monster down was phenomenal, came out like last August from his series, but it the story was set some time before Necrosha, so it wasn't current Josh, still. They had a bond going on, especially with his involvement in X-Force and all. It was nice.

I'd actually rather Wolverne's solo series to feature some kids from the New X-Cast instead of the same old rehashed villains to give the title some substantial credibility, because that issue showed that it does have the potential to be more than just a 'Wolverine title for the sake of having one'. Cause right now that title's crap, and i don't even read it.

@dangallant984: Then I agree. Even about Pixie. I think she could work and the character development she had before was mostly good stuff, so I'd be interested to see where it would go.

Edit: @AgeofHurricane: Agreed about Warpath too. Though I think I'd let Domino stay with Cable.

@AgeofHurricane: I forgot all about Elixir! yeah he'd be great. Also digging the Warpath suggestion.

Domino I like, but as @DarkDay: pointed out, she'd probably be put to better use elsewhere. Can't really see her standing out on this team.

@DarkDay: yeah, Pixie gets a weird popularity backlash that I've never understood; I think she's a lot of fun.

Wolverine

Jubilee

Pixie

Armor

Kitty

Doop

Mystique

And if Mystique can't be on the team, I'd want her to play the Catwoman to Logan's Batman.

Well I think it is because of some of the stories that were coming out because of her popularity at the time (or more likely her popularity just happened during a strange batch of story telling)...some of them were just plain stupid and others were a lot of other character bashing...and one that annoys me to no end is both of these things:

So yes while I'm not saying the hate makes sense, I can say that I understand. lol I love Nightcrawler and I was actually shocked when I started reading this one. I even nerd raged. Then I laughed pretty hard at just how iffy writing was getting during this time period. For further examples just search Colossus's tattoo. XD

I never read this one; what was so infuriating about it?

@dangallant984: Basically Nightcrawler decides to quite the X-Men because Pixie is a better teleporter than him...yeah...

@DarkDay: that smegg does sound outrageous. what a bad joke.

Oh, it gets worst.

He goes on a soul searching trip and realizes that he should go back and the X-men are suddenly facing a magical enemy that Pixie's teleport doesn't work against and then Kurt wrecks the guy and is like "Hey I'm useful after all! Go me!" If you're a Nightcrawler fan I think you die a little inside. XD

It's not Pixie's fault that someone let these sorts of stories happen, but yeah I think that might be some of the cause of the hate...just terrible writing that every character had to suffer through for awhile and she was in the spotlight during alot of it. So guilt by association.

@DarkDay: well, that's too bad. I guess I'm glad I didn't read it.

There was just this weird bubble of super terrible writing shortly after the X-men got to San Francisco.

Posted by dangallant984

@DarkDay: yeah, I've only read the main titles from that era (Uncanny, Astonishing, and Legacy?), but that seemed to be very much the case.
