In recent times Doctor Strange lost his title of Sorcerer Supreme and handed it to Brother Voodoo, who shortly after sacrificed himself in order to save the universe. So with out the protection of the Sorcerer Supreme wouldn't this open the flood gates to all manner of strange and magic events happening.
The X-Men are no strangers when it come to magic and the super natural, the events of Inferno, Quest for Magik and Necrosha are just a few examples of when the X-Men have gone against the mystic.
But while the X-Men have a black-ops team (X-Force), a clean up crew (New Mutants), their main roster (Uncanny X-Men) and are even afiliated with an investigations group (X-Factor). They do not have a team to deal with such super natural threats.
It is for this reason that I propose the idea of a new team that shall be known as
X-orcist(exorcist), composing of characters that have some what of a conection to the super-natural.
Nate Grey a.k.a X-Man is a mutant shaman and unless my knowledge is incorrect a shaman is ment to be a tribel mystic man. And now with the mutant kind being more of a tribe than ever before he can trully live up to that title.
I also picked Nate due to the fact that I find that the most interesting Comic books are those that have the heroes at a disadvantage against their foes. And with Nate being so trumedously powerful I figure Magic is one of a very few things that may truly put Nate on the defensive.
Jubilation Lee a.k.a Jubilee recently turned into a Vampire imeadiatly giving her a conection to the super natural. Jubilee has been finding it hard to find her place among the X-Men since her 'transformation' and the only other place I could picture her being in this state is going solo, but that just isn't the Jubes I know and love.
When thinking of who should lead this new team it was a toss up between Nate and Jubes as both have been stated to have leadership potential, but ultimatly I'd have to choose Nate for the simple reason that Jubilee can only opperate in the feild for half the time, (being unable to opperate in sunlight)
Megan Gwenn a.k.a Pixie besides looking like a fairy since her obtaining of her Soul Dagger she has conections to Limbo and also some knowledge of magic plus she's one of a few people who are not truly bothered by Jubilee's current state.
I suppose Pixie's place could be taken by Magik (but she is busy with New Mutants) and while I would intend X-orsist to be a fantasy/horror book Pixie would bring a lighter, funner edge to it.
At some point I would also like to do a story like Pixie being forced to choose beween life with the X-Men or accepting a proposal from the prince... of fairies.
I would also add the ghost (or astral projection since he accended to a higher being) of Mr. M for as I stated I would intend this to be a horror book and just the look of this guy creeps me out!
Also with them taking on demons and all the team will need some serious power-houses.
And finally ad some guy who has been cursed by the Wendigo but has more control of their transformation than other poor victims of the Canadian bigfoot.
A Wendigo was added to the under the suggestion of a friend and to add an eliment of raw strength to the team.
As far as story goes I'd have the team face off against everything from Blackheart and Mephisto, to an invasion of Harvesters, fighting gods, and possibly looking for a way to undo the effects of M-Day (after all that was caused by a spell from the Scarlet Witch)
And over time others may join the team Blink, Threnody, Wiccan and Hollow seem like vallid candidates to me.
So what do you guy's think? Anyone you would add to the team (please don't say Zombie Deadpool), anyone you would like to see this team face, or any suggestions on how would be a good artist for such a book!
