So I have thrown this idea in my head for awhile now, and I guess I'm posting to see what you guys think.
So with in X-men there have been a few differnt X-men whos religion plays an important role in their life and their powers. And I think it would be.intresting if we had a team of X-men that would explore the themes of religion within the mutant community. How do differnt religions feel about mutants, for the individuals what does it mean to be religious and a mutant, etc.
Now in the context of the book the team wouldnt come together because of this, but in the conversations that they have with each other and the villans they face it will come up. Villans like he purifiers and the church of humanity can show up. Maybe even a new group of evil mutants called the church of mutants or something idk.
Anyway here is the working roster I came up with
1) Nightcrawler ( catholic)
2) Kitty Pryde ( Jewish)
3) Indra ( Hindu)
4) Wolfsbane ( catholic i belive)
5) Dust ( muslim)
6) M ( Muslim)
7) Oya ( some denomination of christian, I'm not sure which one though)
8) Forge ( trained to be a Cheyenne medicine man)
In this roster we have a diverse group of powers and abilities, as well as race, religion, Ideologies, and even age because we have students of Xavier academy from all different eras of the X-men mythos.
Now maybe it wouldn't work for a series, but maybe a mini series or something.
I just think it could be a really cool topic to explore.
