I said a while ago that Magik needed more time in the spotlight, well she is getting more time there now and I like what I am seeing so far. She is quickly becoming one of the better badasses among the X-Men and the Marvel universe in general. I think Tempus has some great potential but who knows what will happen there. One thing I do not like about the new series is the lame powers are not working properly angle. I feel it was just added as a cheap plot device to create more drama. I would prefer to see more about Cyclops plans for the revolution.
I chose that kid that Heals. I'm biased because I always choose to be the healer in most RPG's that give me that choice so I support every healer. From Elixir to the new guy.
Poor Elixir... I'm surprised anyone still remembers his name!
Where is he MARVEL... answer that for me!!!
I think there all good, Bendis is doing a good job.
He's doing a good job with characterisation, in terms of how they should be acting. Definitely for Scott and Emma. Not a fan of his dialogue in general, however.
Gillen > Bendis so far.
I have never liked Magik, however I do love Bachalo drawing her. It almost makes me want to like her. However, I have to say, Emma Frost. I like the new direction they are taking her character after the PF left her. Same with Cyclops, but Emma>Scott.
I like what they're doing to all characters so its very hard for me to choose. I'm a fan of the new direction they're taking all these characters in.
I wasn't enjoying Emma in ANXM but I am starting to like her development in UXM. She's always been a favourite and I'm happy to see more humanit in her character.
Magik's always been another favourite of mine since her New Mutants day. However she's been a very inconsistent character when writers take a hold onto her. I enjoyed her in the most recent New Mutants run featuring her taking lead of the team and bringing them to limbo. From my impression she got shards of her soul back after the series ended. Which only meant one thing, she was more human than demon. However, I think writers just ignored that and made her more demon again b/c of how they've been writing her since then. That being said I wish that they don't just have her as the sarcastic girl version if Quinten Quire. Magik is a deep character and I'd like to see a more personable side of her in the future of UXM.
Cyclops. Love him but not too much to say. I'm glad they're writing him as a leader again and doing what's best for the time. And I like that he's not aggressive and just like "let's fight" like all the other characters (Avengers specifically).
Tempus is a new fan favourite, really glad she's on the team! Can't really say much about her but I feel like she's going to be a big character in UXM, can't wait to see her development on the team.
I don't have nothing to say for the healer, I fell in love with Elixir, don't really want to grow an attachment with someone who's, if anything, weaker than him (when it comes to healing), when MARVEL could have just put Elixir on the team.
Anyway.. Totes voted for Emma.
I love the whole team (at least the old ones) the news ones have alot of potential but i want to see more from them before i declare them my favorite, now i also want to add i still want to see a few old X men come over to Cyclops side :D (go go cannonball!!)
I voted for Emma(well, that's pretty obvious lol), but I'm happy to see that Magik is leading, finally people start to like this awesome character(and finally she's got a central role in the MU).
Of the main four, I think Magik's the only one I don't consider one of my favorites, but I am really glad to see her in this role. It's not often we've gotten to see her outside of the context of being either Colossus' sister or one of the New Mutants, so that alone makes me more interested in her.
