Daredevil and the Shroud win this easily. The Shroud can project absolute, total darkness. The Shroud's mystic senses allow him to perceive his foes in the darkness, as would Daredevil's radar sense. Both men are top level hand-to hand combatants. Daredevil has the added ninja training to allow him to move silently. As tough as a couple of the rogues are, groping about blindly in the darkness is too big of a disadvantage for them to overcome.

That right there, Marvel & DC, is the proper way to relaunch a character... with absolutely breathtaking art. I don't know one single thing about Rai, and it doesn't matter. Crain's art is selling that book to me. Looks like I'll be subscribing to my very first Valiant title.
Well, to some degree, the term "X-Man" has come to be almost synonymous with "mutant". After Decimation, most of the remaining mutants of the world were folded into the X-Men, if for no other reason than to provide them with a safe haven.
I think you need to go back to the roots of the team to truly define who is, and isn't, an X-Man. Certainly I believe that an X-Man is someone who was indoctrinated in Charles Xavier's belief system. To believe in, and strive towards making his dream a reality. They also would have been trained by Xavier to serve as his soldiers, to aid in protecting mankind from those deemed "evil" mutants. Under this purview, Cyclops, Havok, Magik & Polaris are X-Men.
Magneto, as a peer and adversary of Xavier's, beholden to an opposing philosophy, can never really be considered an X-Man. There's always going to be that disconnect that forever sets him apart from the team. LIke Prince Namor, he may serve with them, but he will never be "of" them. The same can be said for Mystique, Sebastian Shaw, the Juggernaut ( who's not even a mutant), and Sabre-Tooth.
Legion has traditionally been portrayed as too damaged to ever be a part of any team, let alone a functioning member of any society. Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch are Avengers, having willfully isolated themselves from the greater mutant population for decades now.
I would argue that X-Force, in most of it's incarnations, is a separate entity from the X-Men. It's another team of mutants with a different mission statement. As different from the X-Men as the Defenders were to the Avengers. While there may be X-Men in X-Force, that doesn't make their entire membership X-Men. Same holds true for X-Factor.
I don't actually know who Molly Hayes is, & it's a bit late to be doing any research on her. If she's never been a part of the X-Men proper though, than no, she's not an X-Man.
All of this is just my opinion, of course, Nothing that I've said should be considered the gospel truth.
