I've spent some time thinking of my reply and I can't really find much I dislike about the current landscape. If anything, I'd just make X-Man more relevant. He's the only one of the Summers clan not involved in something and I find that odd w/ the current situations that other family members find themselves in.

Give the old New Xmen thier own book as New Mutants V3.

Get rid of this Angel nonsense. Only interesting facet of the character was Archangel though so hard to see where he goes.

I would undo all of Cyclops history from about Q4 1999 to now. Hands down answer.

But that would change everything that's happened to the X-Men...

I would change Magneto, make him a bad guy again.

I'm gonna change the fact Cyclops is perceive as a villain, manipulator and a bad leader!!

And wolverine as the bad one, seriously. I'm sick of too much Wolverine exposures from here to there as if he was ALWAYS right.

(okay, that was two things)

I'd make some of the other X-Men step up to leadership positions instead of Wolverine. Beast, Storm and Kitty should have been the ones to start the school not Wolverine. He shouldn't have had anything to do with it.

this is the first thing I thought, too *chuckles*

if I could change one thing about the X-men's story, I'd change it so that Cyclops was actually responsible for paralyzing Xavier, and that that was the first time Xavier used his powers to mind wipe someone, to save Cyclops from realizing what had happened..

Change the fact that currently Cyclops is a villain and everybody hates him and stop making that X with his hands.

I'd make Wolverine a wise-cracking optimist.

I would have:

1. Made Magneto the villain again since he was more interesting that way.

2. Make Storm be the one who goes against Cyclops during Schism instead of Wolverine and be the one who started the school instead of Wolverine.

3. Not make Colossus the next Juggernaut since they barely did anything with that.

4. Bring Nightcrawler back to life.

Who would it be? Wolverine

What would it be? Take him back to the fight loving brawler we knew from the original run, with a limit on his healing factor, no concern for leadership and a love of drinking.

Why? This would make him more believable and more fun. I also think the X-Men rely on him too much and his power level has become ridiculous considering his power set and abilities. It's gotten to the point where it is hard to make him seem cool where I expect him to ruin each event and am always on the lookout for a writer giving him a bad@$$ moment. The problem is that if one or a couple of character gets all those moments, others inexorably fall behind.

@phoenixofthetides: AGREE. Except one small thing. BRING BACK THE CIGARS! Wolverine is NOT a role model

Make Wolverine not a Cyclops/Xavier hybrid.

Make Cyclops not a Wolverine/Magneto hybrid.

I don't like smoking and even I like the cigars. Heck, even the movie franchise that had to take into account presenting a kid friendly image of the character to mass audiences had the quintessential cigar-smoking Logan scene.

Have Selene/The Black Queen join Cyclops' mutant team.

I really like the way Wolverine used to be, and I'm still interested in reading stories from that period of his life, but I can't help but feel like it would be a step backwards for his character to revert to that kind of person again. I've enjoyed Wolverine's evolution from the troubled loner he was to the more responsible character he is now.

For me, he's always been a character who was most potent in small doses, but even to be writing Wolverine like he was written ten years ago would just seem out of character now.

I think if people want to see more of the old Wolverine, they should look for more stories set in his past; for a guy who's been the Wolverine 24/7 for like a hundred years, I'm sure there's still lots to be told.

Give Gambit more he could do with his powers, and, get him to use his charm persuasion powers more.

I think he should be so charming it causes a kind of disonance in peoples perception of reality, so he can make them have mild hallucinations particually works on those attracted to him and nonpsychics.

I'd get Dani Monstar back. I thought she was one of sexiest characters, but I'd redefine her powers. While she could still pull out peoples worse fears. And conjure images. I'd also give her the power to control people like Karma.
