Who should Cyclops pick to lead the mutant race?

#1 Posted by Namor1987 (1886 posts) - - Show Bio

My initial picks aren't even from New Mutants to be honest. They're Cable, Namor, Havok or Magneto. I picked Cable because he brought that crazy Hope girl back to the present with him & she's insanely powerful & I think she's going to be the "mutant anti-Christ"  & I'd like to see him be like "oh crap Bishop was right" & just blow her head off, plus he's experienced, a seasoned war veteran, master tactician & strategist & has been through time & seen a lot of things. Namor because he hasn't really done much since he joined the team (but then again I don't read any titles except for X-Force & New Mutants) plus he's lead his whole race & royalty & would be nice to see how he lead the mutant  race. Havok because I always felt that he could have done a better job than Cyclops if given the chance & he's just as talented a leader as his brother, Scott. I picked Magneto because he's lead the Brotherhood Of Evil Mutants, The Acolytes, & Genosha & Asteroid M on numerous occasions. But If I had to pick out of the New Mutants I would say Danielle Moonstar deserves to lead the mutant race because in issue 10 Sam was more of a pushover & kinda seemed like he had non-verbally forfeited all his leadership power to Dani & plus Danielle can hold her own even while depowered.

of the new mutants, i think it would be fun to see cypher lead the mutants with warlock as his right hand man.  the new development of his powers is really interesting and he's highly intelligent.

I don't see any of New Mutants leading the mutant race.
And I still hope that Hope (no pun intended) becomes a Mutant Messiah in the future.

Will Cannonball return to the NM team when he recovers from his injuries? I thought Scott was grooming him to lead the X-Men,

Cannonball showed in Age of X that he most certainly has the potential to lead.

It's hard to take CB seriously after Deadpool called him Cannonballs.

haha that's hilarious! But still I agree with Dark Huntress and say Cannonball has the cannonballs to lead the team.

I remember it from Deadpool's first solo series during a team-up with Siryn and Cannonball.

It should be Storm because she's suppose to be the next leader of the X-men but she got married to what's his name....oh yeah Black Panter, So the next person to lead should be Magneto or Beast, the next 2 closes people to Professor X.  I would say Emma Frost but too many of the X-men dont even trust her, let alone get along with her.

@Sukislide
But Beast is not with the X-Men. And Storm hasn't been 2nd in command for a LONG time. I believe Emma Frost, Angel, and Wolverine and probably more are ahead of her in rank now.

 

He seems to have a lot of faith in Dani and Sam. But Dani has no powers dammit! Make it Sam! He won't make Magneto lead for obvious reasons. For now atleast.

@Sukislide: It should most definitely not be Magneto even if he wasn't a hate monger if the human governments saw him in charge they'd nuke Utopia in a second

I thought about it: how about Karma or Moonstar?
