Recently the Fantastic Four have lost a key family member and are now adding heroes into their collective known as the Future Foundation. Given that little Franklin Richards has just had the blocks to his power taken off, wouldn't it make sense for X-Man to join the team? At least insofar as it makes sense for him to join ANY team. Nate is this super powerful godlike character and there you have Franklin who is probably even more powerful. I think it would make sense to have Nate there as a older brother type to Franklin and Valeria. That or have him kick around the planet with Hope and Rachel Grey whenever she gets her goofy ass back to Earth.
Where does he belong?
I would like to see him as a member of the X-Men with his own team though. I also agree though that he'd made a good big brother type to the Richards kids. Seeing as him and Franklin got on quite well during Onslaught saga and when Nate went to the F4 for help for a time. Seeing him meet Hope and Rachel for the first time and hang out together would be awesome. I still think Hope and Nate could actually make a good couple honestly. There is no reason he couldn't be an X-Man and a member of Future Foundation. I mean how many teams are Wolverine and Spider-Man a part of. Also with my mention of Spider-Man, Nate and Peter should reunite. I always liked their friendship, like brothers almost.
It looks as if the New Mutants are on the attack at Nate and Blink,
Since Blink and Nate are (re)appearing together and it is said that Blink blames the X-Men for leaving her and perpously never rescuing her it may make scenes on her part,
So perhaps Nate is in a simular point of mind after the conclusion of Dark X-Men, which may explain his We Are The X-Men promo from a few months ago about being 'torn apart by events of the precent' or something like that.
" I've honestly always like Nate as he is, very separate from Cable. He was never meant to be Cable. "Agreed. Nate was the mutant shaman, the wandering monk who healed and protected all with his mind. Nate actually fills the role of the Askani son more than Cable ever did. With Hope going around with her little magic fingers trick, Nate's spot in the Marvel U. is being co-opted by the newbie. I hope his upcoming reappearance has been worth the wait, Dark X-Men was pretty disappointing.
"I'd like to see X-Man take Hellion under his wing but im pumped for his upcoming role in NM "
I completely agree with that. IMHO Nate would be a good "older brother" for Hellion since they seem alike and he could help him learn more control over his TK.
I'm also anxious to see Nate in NM.
"Back in "New Mutants" #10, Cyclops said he was searching for the next leader of the X-Men to take his place. Cannonball was a potential candidate, but after "Second Coming" and "Fall of the New Mutants," Cannonball's resolve as leader has noticeably crumbled. I know Nate Grey is set to come back soon; is it premature to assume that X-Man could be the next leader Cyclops is looking for?
It's not premature to speculate. There's Nate. There's Hope. Sam's still in the frame. And there's always Dani..."Nate might be making a name for future leadership....i'm down
