I know it's just the standard card game with lots of bells and whistles and an arcade feature, but since I'm totally obsessed with team lineups, I really got into it even though it crashes like a mofo and has several issues to sort through.

Any thoughts from other players out there? It's a free game so I feel silly even complaining about little things...I wasn't exactly sure how it all worked from the beginning so I probably sacrificed some characters I may should've hung on to.

I got Iceman as my headmaster to start and bought Storm for some team points. I have a pretty solid team with Shadowcat, Nightcrawler, Colossus, Guardian, Snowbird, Sasquatch, Karma and Cecelia Reyes.

There are a number of events and several different monetary systems....although I refuse to spend real money to get some of the better characters and loot.

@koays: You're right, Xavier should be Ned, and how about Lilandra as Katherine?

What if Cyclops was Stannis, and Madelyn Pryor his Red Lady?

I'd say if any woman of the X-Men could match Daenarys' army, it'd be Storm, a literal force of nature. Hope would fill the role nicely too :)

If you could cast a merry band of mutants to reign over kingdoms a la GoT, who would embody the Lanisters, the Starks, the wildlings, the bastards, the pirates and the masters?

Is there anybody other than Magneto as Tywin, and Wanda & Pietro as the twins and maybe Lorna as Tyrian? Or Puck? The I guess some version of Speed would have to be Jeoffry and Wiccan as the more balanced younger brother....

Anywhoooo, following that or any other line of thought, who's who in your eyes?

hmmm...would Wolverine be the Hound...and Sabretooth as the brother...so Aria would be Kitty or Jubilee sooooo Winterfell could be like the Xavier institute instead of sticking with blood ties. Cyclops is Ned *chop* and Emma is Katherine... lol

@oldnightcrawler: I thought it was strange that they had Ink use his bio power to make the doctors sick....and then what looked like Quill...also made the doctors sick.

@martian81: Neither Sinister nor Spiral are mutants...and why would you want to turn Darwin into Proteus? Darwin alters himself in reaction to his environment, Proteus is Moira McTaggart's son and warps reality around him while possessing host bodies ... I think fanboys would be up in arms about a change that drastic.

@oldnightcrawler: it's not AoA, just an Apocalypse centered story along with an exploration of ancient mutants.

Gypsy, immortal time-slider with an explosive gaze, daughter of Gambit & Scarlet Witch.

Anvil, black-steel skinned hulkbuster and burgeoning fiery furnace, son of Colossus & Firestar.

Lexis, keeper of the ancient texts and Sorceress Supreme, daughter of Magik & Cypher.

Nightshift, avatar of the Darkforce and spectral shapeshifter, son of Quicksilver & Darkstar.

Spindle, weaving webs with the ample life force within her, daughter of Spider-Man & Dagger.

HBO has the budget...my fear for a network tv version would culminate in cheap and cheesy effects like Charmed, everyone just shooting little light balls and fire balls and meatballs...all covered with cheeeeeese.

I'd like to see a spin/combo on the New Mutants/Gen X/Young X-Men. Some things would have to get shifted around in compliance with established movieverse continuity.

It could start with students from around the globe arriving in Muir Island for tutelage under Moira McTaggart and a newly reformed Emma Frost (played by anyone other than January Jones). They are relocated for their own protection after Magneto's attack on the White House.

Moira's son, Proteus, is so powerful he's quarantined like the boy in the bubble.

Xavier's son, Legion, is troubled by his myriad of psychic powers and wears a dampener designed by Moira. (neither Xavier nor David may be aware of their relation)

Wolfsbane is Moira's adopted daughter and she's constantly conflicted by her lycanthropic, feral nature after being convinced by her ultra religious father that she's a demon dog.

Any number of characters could work to round out the cast: Mirage, Karma, Magik, Cypher, Magma, Cannonball, Siryn, Boom Boom, Rictor, Jubilee, M, Husk, Chamber, Synch, M, Penance, Mondo, Nocturne, Pixie, Dust, Anole, Hellion, Elixir, Wallflower, Wither, Rockslide, Mercury, Surge, Prodigy, The Cuckoos, Quentin Quire...you get the gist, although probably no more than 5 or 6 from this list.

10% for Rattner?!?!?! Freakin' trolls, man.

Singer started the franchise...1 and 2 were pretty solid and defined the tone for future comic adaptations for a while.

And seriously, DOFP is golden. In all of Midgard, Asgard, The Astral Plain, The Mojoverse, The Darkforce Dimension, The Brimstone Dimension, The Crimson Dawn and Otherworld....who would've thunk we'd see Blink, Sunspot, Warpath, Bishop and an adaptation of one of the X-Men's most beloved stories on the big screen in our lifetimes!?

I say let Singer finish his story...and I'm so hoping it involves Cable and Domino some how.

My favorite moment was the Evan Peters/Quicksilver kitchen scene.

Favorite power display, even though she didn't say a word, Fan BingBing/Blink was pretty expressive and watching her orchestrating portals to redirect attacks and build momentum in combination with the other future mutants' powers was excellent.

Patrick Stewart is the man, though. Props to McAvoy, Fassbender & Jackman, but, for me, nothing can overshadow Captain Jean Luc Picard. Make it so.

I'm partial to the cloak and armor from the 80s, even though the pink and purple was a bit garish. The new suit is practical, I love that she has the ninja split-toe thing going on and, even though this isn't costume related, I'm really enjoying the exploration of psi-weapons, making her a more well-rounded warrior.

The thong and wrap boot ensemble always made me think of her as a slave since she was under the manipulation of the Mandarin...kinda strange that she kept that look for so long considering. Also strange that Mojo and Spiral were the ones that coined her name "Psylocke"...and she kept the moniker despite it's origin.
