I still don't get Rogue's regression to her former outfit, but with a frumpy feel to it. Its like they are trying to regress her character (back to the rebel she was when she first joined) and using her old visual style to represent that. I still think you could get that feel with a more modern and stylish take on her Silvestri Era uniforms.
It seems like someone should take a list of A-List characters and list out their common traits, then see if Storm has them all as well. If you do not have a concrete definition of what you are looking for, everything else is just opinion.
@papad1992: I think this team is going to be much more mindful of not killing, so Blink might get help from Psylocke and Storm. Also, Copycat was a member of Weapon X- I am sure they can think of some miraculous way she comes back, since Mystique is over used.
I don't see how Darkstar doesn't fit. She is a formerly trained KGB agent. She needs to be on a team that actually knows how to use her.
Spiral is there just to add conflict and provide quick transportation. I'd rather have Blink, Husk, Chamber, Darkstar, or even Copycat. Use some of the lesser known characters that so its at least shocking when someone betrays the team, because lets face it, if Sprial isn't being mentally controlled, that will be her angle.
