the Uncanny X-men

This list isn't so much a "dream team", as it is an explanation about what I'm digging about the current cast of Uncanny X-Men, as it seems to be a rather polarizing subject.

It seems like a lot of people either don't like some of the new members, or would rather there were more unused classic characters on the team, or both. I'll admit, I was pretty skeptical about some of the new characters, but now I'm really starting to be glad I gave this team a chance.

Nice list, not that different to the Uncanny X-Men now.

I especially like magneto on the team too but im a bit worried that he might go back to being a bad guy like the jan solicitations. I guess we have to wait and see.

as a longtime Magneto fan, it's just something you get used to.

Every few years they decide he's a villain again, you learn to either enjoy it or ignore it; the real Magneto fans know that he'll be back.

@oldnightcrawler:

But it hida sucks if he becomes dead again because wolverine will just kill him, then he would have to come back from the dead again...lol

@hopesummersforthefuture: as much as Magneto is one of my all-time favorite characters, I actually don't think I'd be too bothered if they did kill him off -as long as he had a cool death, and it stuck.

The character should be so old now that it kind of makes more sense that he's not around anyway, and I'd way rather see him killed off in an epic way than just turned back into a strait-up villain, yet again.

It might really be time for Magneto to go, but who would take his place?

I sort of like him as the wild card of this group, and in the way that he plays a not-really-reformed-so-why-even-pretend member of the X-men. I don't think many (if any) previous X-men could take his place in that role. maybe Namor? but it seems pretty far-fetched as a member of this team at present.

Actually, Danger could be cool, and sort of make sense. She's always got her own agenda.

For characters I just think would be cool with these others, Colossus and Beast both come to mind. But, again, both seem very unlikely. Cannonball might be cool.
