Will she ever get a Code Name?

#1 Edited by CellphoneGirl (18764 posts) - - Show Bio

Or will she forever be called Hope Summers? Thoughts? 
 
Edit: I have nothing wrong with her not having one, i'm just curious :P

What's wrong with Hope ? lol

#3 Posted by Fire-brand (2306 posts) - - Show Bio

i'd give her the code name pariah, but thats just me.

@Miss Menace: Nothings wrong with the name Hope, it's just most x-men have code names lol

3.0 :D

I think her having the Phoenix Force, Red Hair, and Green eyes is just a coincidence :P

I think Hope (her real name obv, but still) sums it up. I think it's perfect and she doesn't need a codename. Emma Frost doesn't use one either, Kitty Pryde doesn't anymore too. It was not just Jean who stopped. I like that some of them have real names that work better for them than any codename would.

I like 'Hope'.  It suits her in the same way that 'Jubilee' worked.

Exactly, that was the point I was trying to make.

I have no problem with Hope refraining from taking on a codename. Why? Because...

I'm hoping she'll get a name that actually describes her powers. Maybe Conduit or Avatar? I mean, if she's going to be operating in the field, I'm sort of assuming Scott will make her have one, and it certainly looks like she will be.

Even if she gets a codename, I think people will still call her Hope. Like Jean Grey, her codename was Marvel Girl but everyone called her Jean.

I like Hope 
Messiah might be good too

Messiah, not a bad codename.

She might call herself Cable, you know in Nathan's honor. Like Siryn did with Banshee

#26 Posted by Thor's hammmer (7162 posts) - - Show Bio

it should be "Hope"
#27 Posted by COBRAMORPH (1646 posts) - - Show Bio

I think she should use Hope as her code name, & find out what her birth parents were going to call her & use that as he real name.

Someone hasn't read the latest issue :-P

Well her adoptive old man never had a codename and he got fine with out it. I think she should just stay as Hope. I like the lack of a codename for a chance myself

#30 Posted by papad1992 (6793 posts) - - Show Bio

They should give her the codename FAITH just to be funny!

I really liked the first issue of the 5 Lights arc with her. For the first time in quite a while I'm interested in seeing a new character develop.  
 
As far as codenames...Hope works. It's simple and effective.

@Icon:
kitty pryde uses shadowcat as a codename. well she did until the whole giant bullet in space incident :D
#33 Edited by bleedingheart (427 posts) - - Show Bio

Yea, I like Hope being just Hope. She was practically born being an X-Man so I think her birthname and codename are one in the same. ;)

In honor of Cable, she should be Hi-Def.

She's going to be like Jean and Emma.

@papad1992: but is that funny? Cause i'm drunk and i dont think thats funny at all. no wait i get it now, its a buffy thing
 
I think Hope is fine, I would like her to one day become really full of herself and declare that she wants to be known as the MessiahX. And to have a really superior attitude that makes her really hard to like. Also make her impossible to beat and just watch as the comic book fans email in for her to die like the sentry
#41 Posted by N7_Normandy (2411 posts) - - Show Bio

probably not.  I think hope essentially sums up her entire existence and meaning to the mutant universe.

Nice
#43 Posted by lorex (958 posts) - - Show Bio

If she stays with the X-Men then Hope would be fine, but if she goes further into the shadows and operates in a manner similar to Cable then she might need one. 
I think if she takes a code name it will be Cable, to honor her father.

#44 Posted by sonic5328 (92 posts) - - Show Bio

I think her code name should be Messiah or Savior.

#45 Posted by moywar700 (2775 posts) - - Show Bio

how about faith?

- I hope her code name is Temporary
