OK, so as you know (because you do know it) there's going to be a bunch of New X-Men team, yada yada yada and they're all going to be divided into two main divisions of opposing ideologies (I'm assuming) and then each division is going to have four main team each with its own title. So far some of the characters have been announced, though not all of them and I want to share my opinion on the choices with the rest of you. Since not all characters have been announced I might make an updated to this blog further on with the remaining characters. Part 2 comes when I have the patience (aka 30-60 min)
AoA Nightcrawler - I'm interested in what this leads to, though I like the fact that a teleporter is here because now all of the most interesting low level powers have put been put together on one small team. Though it sucks that Archangel isn't here cause I'd love him to get some more expanding and maybe have his Archangel personality become controlled by his original one. Before I get started on a different topic I want to say that I like this but I don't really have any strong opinions on the character. I do want to say that I'd like for AoA Jean to have come from AoA and hook up with Logan. He needs a more permanent relationship and is one of the few X Men to not have had a noteworthy realtionship with another superhero. (Unless I'm missing something)
Toad - Not really much to say, since this really depends on how this is written, though I do like his powers and I'm curious to see how things go. Though he has been acting like a douche lately but hopefully they do something interesting with him.
Iceman & Gambit - Two characters that I hold a deep love for and seeming them in the same team makes me want to kiss someone's feet. Two interesting characters with interesting powers. While it isn't suprising that Gambit chose to be on Wolverine's team, since they both are similar and understand each other, it is interesting to see why Bobby is here considering he's a friend of Cyclops. Though it might be something to do with the fact that he has been alienated from Cyclops, much like Beast (who I suspect is also on the team, but hasn't been confirmed).
*Just noticed that both of these aren't on the same team, so I apologize if I gave that impression.
Rogue - Quite an obvious choice. Specially after how Scott has been treating her (which is bad writing, but lets not get into that), she's also with Gambit which I like and hopefully we'll get to see something with that (Specially after having read AoX a few hours ago), though we all know how much X Writers love to screw with us when it comes to relationships. But Rogue is one of Wolvie's girls and I like the fact that this is staying.
Shadowcat - Much of the same, she's much like Rogue. I don't like the fact she's seperated from Peter, but I don't think I'm that interested with Peter since he's become a Colossonaut. She also makes a great addition to the team.
Frenzy (That is her name right?) - I don't care much for her character, not really interested. Honestly a wasted slot. Hopefully the book proves me otherwise and I get to like her.
Havok - Love to see him here, I honestly like him as a character and I understand that he's got a typical bortherly relationship with Cyclops which means that they often clash. I liike to see him here, unfortunately his presence means Madarox may die, hopefully he's in front of Guido so his sillouette can't bee seen. Otherwise one of the best character in the book won't be here. I also like the fact Monet is still on the team. Don't want to make a paragraph just for that.
Does everyone like how this is playing out or not really?
