I have been reading about Hope and the more I read about her, the more I think she would be an excellent addition to X force.
Before you consider me crazy hear me out....
1: Hope is Cable's "Daughter":Cable founded the original team as a paramilitay force and Hope was trained literally her entire life by Cable in the art of war. Naturally if she found out about Cable's role in X force she would want to be on the team if for no other reason than to honor his memory.
2: Hope can fight:With her survival training from Cable combined with the fact that she has been chased by Bishop (who is one of the most dangerous mutant soldiers alive) her entire life and ultimately defeated him after she "came of age." You could potentially place her on a comparable level to X-23 due to life experience. Hope was forced to learn how to be the ultimate survivor and Laura was trained to be the ultimate killer (though granted Hope wouldn't have a prayer against Laura at close quarters)
3: "Firebird" (If I chose Hope's codename) + X-23 team up:the ultimate survivor and the ulltimate Killer watching each others back against an army of assassins...Enough said.
4: She has extensive experience in advanced technology and weapons:that would be invaluable in cloaking your missions from from Reed Richards technology and she has an extensive expertise in futuristic weapons.
5: Power:She has power mimicry, telekinesis, Telepathy, power Activation/Stabilization, And the Phoenix Force.
HOPE IS ESSENTIALLY
THE DARK PHOENIX ON A BLACK OPS SQUAD...WITH MILITARY TRAINING, WITHOUT JEAN GREY (AND THE THREAT BLOWING UP THE UNIVERSE), DEVOID OF THE CYCLOPS WOLVERINE LOVE TRIANGLE, AND A KINDRED SPIRIT IN X-23...
What more could you ask for in an X force Candidate?
