Who will Hellion side with? Spoilers for future X-Stories

#1 Posted by Gawdzilla (376 posts) - - Show Bio

In May and June Marvel will be releasing X-Men:Prelude a prologue if you will to the major X-Event of 2011 that will last from July to October. Now rumor has it the X-Men might endure a four way split with Cyclops leading a faction, Wolverine leading a faction, Xavier leading a faction and Magneto leading a faction.  
http://marvel.com/news/story/15212/x-men_follow_the_leader
 
Now should this schism happen...who do you think Hellion would side with?
 
In my opinion the clear choice is....Wolverine. And i'll explain why in a bit but first i'll list why Hellion wouldn't side with the other three. 
 
First is Cyclops; after  their argument at the conclusion of "Fables" i see think it would be a cold day in Hell before Hellion would side with Cyclops. Second is Magneto; a lot of people i've talked too think this might happen because of how he's always been kind of hyped as the next Mags. But if we go back to all the times Magneto has interacted with Hellion, he's treated him like dirt. Now mind you Hellion's deserved some of the flack that Magneto has given but not all. I don't see Hellion following him after the way Mags has brushed him off. Last is Xavier. This is no because honestly right now i don't think Hellion believes in the Dream. 
 
Now after we look at all that Wolverine is the key answer. Here's some of the reasons why i think he'll join and it will be a good fit. 1) Wolverine see's potential in Hellion. About a month back they had the X-Men guide written by Steve Rodgers and the original Cap said that both Beast and Wolverine have told Steve that they believe that think Hellion has a lot of potential and is a rising star in his generation. 2) Wolverine is willing to go to as Dick Cheny once so eloquently put it..."The Dark Side" to get the job done( X-Force). Its great to be a hero and all but sometimes you have to be proactive and merciless. 3) X-23. Both Wolverine and Hellion both care fairly deeply for X-23. Its the common bondy that unites them both. Wolverine is well aware of X-23's feelings for Hellion so i could see Wolverine keeping an eye out for Hellion as a favor to X-23. 
 
These are my thoughts; i'm interested in hearing your guys.

If it came down to that despite the way Magneto treated him, Hellion would most likely side with Magneto but if X-23 is involved he just /may/ side with him. It depends on his exact feelings for Laura  and just how broken and bitter Hellion really is. 
 
I would like for him to kind of have an "I told you so moment". Because as harsh as what he said to Cyke in X-Men Legacy, he was totally right.

Oh god I hope your theory turns out correct! There is no way he'd follow Cyclops and to that extent even less so with Xavier. I'd say its a split between Mags and Wolvie. I don't think they should put him along side Magneto since yes, all their interactions have been less than satisfactory... I think Wolvie is the BEST choice however we have been led astray before...

 
This just gives me hope. lol

Cyclops threatened to lock him up.  Wolverine saved Hellion from the MRD & Sapien League.  Seems pretty conclusive to me.

Hellion hates Cyclops and looks up to Magneto. I think Hellion once approached Magneto in order to get revenge against the X-Men. In all honesty, I'd like Hellion to go his own seperate way and become a villain himself, but for sure he'd much rather follow Magneto/Wolverine than Cyclops.

I think its time for you to draw a comic about the four of them trying to recruit Hellion to their team

At one point he did, and he sought him out after Messiah Complex during Divided We Stand. Mags told him off. 
 
Hence why he should go with Wolvie. It's high time he takes someone other than a teenage girl under his wing

I'd prefer Emma or Storm leading a fraction instead of Xavier.. Like i understand he's the founder and all.. but he hasn't really been around lately..

I actually prefer Rogue to Xavier leading a younger team ala, loa, indra, trance, bling!, surge, mercury, anole, hellion and rockslide.  I enjoyed the way she has lead a similar team in the X-men Legacy line.  I think she can turn hellion's angry emotions inward to heal him, much in the same way the x-men helped her.  I would also like to see some of the other underused X-men on the team, like Husk, Iceman and Jubilee.

otherwise make hellion a villian.

@nicknicholby: 
Last time (that I know of) that Rogue talked to Hellion was to threaten him (if I remember correctly)...
 
I think Wolverine would be a really good choice.  Cyclops is a definite no regardless of what Cyclops does, Xavier would probably the same thing
Magneto would be a tense maybe in my mind since I think he used to look up to Magneto but after Divided We Stand...not so much
Wolverine would be a good idea though, and I don't even like the character that much

@Alaric: I think we form a co-op; i write em/come up with ideas...you draw them :)
 
Hellion: Now why should i join your team? What's in it for me?
 
Cyclops: I'll take you off probation.
 
Magneto: I'll stop treating you like a little kid
 
Xavier: Umm....well...i got nothing...
 
Wolvie: I'll let you date Laura and teach you how to kick ass. 
 
Hellion: And i believe we have a winner
#13 Posted by Alaric (115 posts) - - Show Bio

Well I'll take idea pitches. Too busy to do co-ops at the moment but its something that seems fun to do later on.  :D
 
I'm gunna do em 4koma style, one for each faction. X)

lololol
 
Seriously, though....I'd really like to see him team with Wolverine. That would be new, and seems more along the lines of what Julian believes in--action, not pretty ideals. Lots of room for character development, and Logan might help him get over some issues he's been having. He can be a pretty good mentor. 
 
I'm afraid that Hellion will go along with Magneto though...just because it's been somewhat foreshadowed that he is becoming a villain. Blah.

I just LOVE you guys =)  You really should do your own amazing comic series.
 
After reading all the posts my vote is for Wolverine. Totally not for Cyclops (probation thing and other stuff), and also no for Mags (all these "Explain yourself, boy", "RUN" - post Second Coming conversation with Hope, Divided We Stand conversation, et cetera) and Xavier (like Nori said in NXM #44: "There's nothing you can teach us, 'prof'... We already know how to die"). 
It might be like that:
Wolvie: Hellion, I know all the stuff about how you feel for Laura and all, but it's dangerous here, really messed up. You don't want to be here. Tons of deaths, hands - whoops - arms covered in blood... Go with Cyke or Chuck, it'll be much better for your psychic health, kid. It's just not your war. This is your last chance to make the right choice. Walk. Away.
Julian: MEH.
Wolvie: Fine, your life. You're in.

Ugh, no time to color it but enjoy this crappy lil comic.  College = Nu life.
 

Made it in my spare time so quality is no longer in my dictionary. lol I still plan on making a couple more of these and maybe with other New X-men besides Hellion. X) Just for fun feel free to throw in ideas like Anole w/ Mags or Loa w/ Cykes. I dunno. but I'll do what I can. rofl Oh, and send em via dA or Msg here. Don't wanna upset any mods by being off topic. >.>'

Either Mags or Wolverine.   I think it depends on who X-23 sides with ultimately.

That is true. But Magneto has outwardly rejected / spurned Hellion twice now. Firstly in Divided We Stand and secondly at the end of Second Coming. To make matters worse, Magneto has openly taken an interest in MegaBrat aka Hope.

Malorie Liu should write him as a regular cast member of 'X-23'.

@John Valentine: It would be super special awesome, but HIGHLY unlikely.

I think for the moment each of them needs some time alone to get their lives together.

yup he is going to wolvy

@Virus_Warning:
I agree. He is definitely not Emma's biggest fan. First of all, she ordered him to knock out Laura (Hellion didn't like Laura back then, but he refused to obey). Then she made Surge a leader of New X-Men to punish him. Then she lied to him when he asked about Cessily, Sooraya and Laura when he had woken up after being stabbed by Deathstrike. And, finally, punched him out when she was with Dark X-Men.
