So looking at the solicits for the upcoming All-New Marvel Now (or whatever) Xforce, I see that Domino and Colossus are missing. Of course no one knows what will happen in the upcoming Uncanny Xforce/Cable and Xforce crossover, so its hard to get answers on this. But I know a few people are wondering where they are going? I guess really Hope,Forge,Spiral and Boom-Boom can be included in that question as well for that matter.
When I heard he was joining Xforce, I was interested big time. I may be in the minority but personally I like when the big fella gives in to rage and goes all out. I thought the Colossanaut thing ended too quickly. Im not too much of a fan of how things have played with his attitude and wanting to be locked up for his crimes and all though his relationship with Domino is cool IMO since Kitty has beome whinny and doesnt know what she wants.
Part of me is a little concerned that he may not necessarily survive this upcoming crossover. Coincidentally I felt the same way about Rogue in Uncanny Avengers..and well. The treatment just seems to be a bit similar to hers.
I'm not really sure what the best fit for Colossus would be at this point. I thought maybe rejoining Cyclops' outlaw team since Colossus is in fact still "wanted". But then Im thinking about his relationship with his sister and now Kitty is over there as well. In BOTA (cant believe Im refering to that nonsense) it was portrayed that Magik possibly committed suicide and he took her soul sword or something, so i guess eventually they would make up, though that could have been altered (and really should be forgotten and never spoken of again). But thinking of the most recent things that transpired between them and even his conversation with Storm makes me think its not time for this just yet. Though i must admit having those two not trusting each other and at odds while on the same team could be complex.
Joining JGS would make sense also since they are looking for Nightcrawler who was his friend. But then Im wondering how we would be accepted considering the Schism and Phoenix 5 stuff. Who knows what the big hypocrite would say, as his character is going through menopause or something or least he's being written all over the place. Thinking of Storm also, I dont think they parted on the best of terms either with the team they were on or the Consequences of AVX where I believe she clearly wanted him to turn himself in. That being said Storm may be willing to accept him back and his full on redemption considering how she seemed to be ok with Bishop joining her Xforce squad.
She seems to be a perfect fit for an Xforce squad. Being a mercenary and remembering how she was in Kyle and Yost's Xforce just feels right. Plus it just feels that Domino fits with Cable. Im worried about her too, though. Considering how Marvel is giving attention to Longshot and how they have similar luck powers, plus thinking about how many writers tend to use death as a plot device or a way to develop other characters, I wonder. It just seems like too good a fit for her.
Other than Xforce, Domino has been on recently (last few years) Storm's team. Going back there would be cool. She also fits with what Cyclops is doing in Uncanny. I like for any team out there really because to me its just easy to see her fitting any scenario.
I actually thought it might be kinda cool to see her leading her own squad. She's really good with Cable part of me would like to see her separate from him also, which could further develop her character. I would love to see her and Cannonball with maybe Chamber, Husk, Boom-Boom, Sage and Frenzy and a few others maybe even Colossus, forming their own team and dealing with issues. Would love for Stacy X to be here too, I just like her personally.
As far as the two of them go, while I dont want their relationship to end, IMO its not necessary for them to be on the same team for it to carry on. I currently like how Beast's relationship with Abigail brand is. You know it's there and its referred to sometimes even off panel but they are doing different things. i think this can be true of Domino and Colossus as well. Being on the same team is fine but if not then that's cool too.
So I guess this question is two-fold. First off, what do you think happens to Domino and Colossus in this crossover? and... What do you see as the best fit for them either together or individually? You could include your dream scenario as well. Also any thoughts on Hope, Spiral, Bishop, Forge and Boom-Boom would be awesome too.
