I want a new  X-title, that just focuses on the X-Ladies.  A Much better title than X-gals on the run. IF DC can do it, why can't  Marvel, why can't the writers focus on the X-ladies for once. What do you guys think and what X-Lady would you like to see in the title ?

Why would it be cancel. Your telling me a title that could feature Emma, Jean Grey, Storm, Rogue and Psylocke and maybe Kitty would be cancel. I think even a title with Domino, X-23, vampire Jubilee and Psylocke would be a great title. That's why the X-writers sucks, they focus all there energy with Cyclops and Wolverine. When there is more potential in the X-ladies than them.

They don't last long cause, marvel don't give them a chance to. DC got the right the idea with the New 52. They got Birds of Prey, Bat-Girl, Catwoman, Supergirl, Batwoman and Wonder Woman. 6 titles that focuses on female characters and I'm sure I have missed some titles out. The X-Men writers need to get there proprietaries in check and stop focusing on  the males characters only. Wolverine, Cable, Iron man, The Hulk, Thor, Spiderman, Dardevil and Captain America, all have there own comic series. What about the X-Ladies. Don't they deserve sometime in the spotlight too.

Well, we should probably start with a list of all the female X-characters. Here's what I pulled from the X-Men, X-Factor, X-Force, New Mutants, Young X-Men, and Xavier Institute team rosters:

That's quite a lot of  ladies, but hardly none of them are in the spotlight. For the past five years,  all X-ladies have been treated poorly and we talking about some of the most popular X-ladies too, Storm, Jean and Emma etc. All of them have been poorly portray in comics. It's time for a change. A want the ladies to step up and hog some of the spotlight too.

My "birds of X" team would be something like:

The setup would be that Wolverine has gone missing--and they'd have to really sell that, by pulling him from all of his books for the duration of the mini-series--and his adopted "daughters" (Dagger isn't really one of those but they're friends) go looking for him. Villain would be Mystique.

There have been books focusing on female members of the x-men,yet they were cancelled. Plus marvel at least gave Rogue a chance with X-men Legacy.

Agreed. And unfortunately some of the ones that have stuck around are really annoying. (I'm looking at you Pixie.)

There'd have to be a reason for it otherwise it's just gonna feel forced. Birds of Prey works because they're all "street level" heroes and most of them have a connection with Batman and they were solo heroes who decided to team up. If characters like Jean, Storm, Emma, Rogue and Psylocke formed their own team it wouldn't really make sense it would be like they're doing it solely because they're all female. Why would they leave the teams they're on already? Also the team wouldn't really have any balance, 3 telepaths?

If it were the younger X-men i'e Surge, Pixie, X-23 I could see it working seeing as a lot of the male x-men their age are immature i.e. Rockslide and that could be used as the reason for the team up.

Brian Woods X-men has managed a female team pretty well (minus colossus). Each member fufills their own role and it doesn't feel forced.

I'm with you all the way! As legitimate heroes (as opposed to just eye candy), the girls are totally undervalued.

It would make sense and these two type of female titles I would like to see  
  
The first title will be a team that will focus on protecting mutants and humans. As will as taking on dangerous threats. The first mission will be rescuing Wolverine, he got missing and these ladies have to save him. They have to take on Sabrtooth, Darken, Lady Death strike and Omega Red. Second mission, will involve dealing with X-23 enemie's and the third mission they will have to deal with some alien species that wants Warbird dead.  
 
The first title will consist of these characters   
 

Rogue will be leader of the team 

 Psylocke 
 
 
 
 
X-23
 
 
 
 Vampire Jubilee 
 
Domino
 
 
 
 
Warbird
  Second team 
 
This title could focus on teaching young mutants how to use there powers, but not  in the school, the teachers would go out on missions with the students and teach them.  

The students that will appear in the title is : X-23, Surge, Pixie, Armor and Warbird, as well as some male students to like Kid Omega, Genesis, Gentle and Hellion  etc.  
 

 Special  guest appearances  will be:  Kitty, Rachel, Magik  and villians such as Mystique , Maddie and Selene  

It won't just focus on teaching young students, it will focuses on rivalries  and as will as friendships, it could be a sisterhood title. Maybe Emma will finally makes some friends that's not Cyclops. 

 The title will consist of 

Storm would be team leader and one of the main teachers too. 

 Emma Frost will be one of the teachers
 
Jean will start of as a student, until she grows up

Psylocke will be one of the teachers, she will train them in hand to hand combat.

Rogue will be mentor for the students like she was in X-Men legacy

i just want to point out that the reason a team of all female X men work is because over half of the Major players in the X verse have been female.

Claremont had no problem pushing the female lead, with characters like Storm, Jean, Kitty in his early books and he followed it up with alot of great ones later, so did later writers. Lobdell had M Jubilee and Husk as pretty much his leads in Gen X, Emma has been a driving force in X books for a while, Pixie, Armor, Surge are all popular young Characters and Rogue had pretty much a solo book in legacy for years. I don't really like the fact that it is a gimmick, being pushed as "all female" but it can be done easy with the women available for the writer to choose from and of course a good writer which Brian Wood is. I am just glad he isn't trying to do all female villains, with all female supporting characters it would seem really forced.

Yeah, Wood is making sure it isn't a gimmick. That is why the book wasn't called XX-Men or X-Women like many people wanted. Seeing Beast a few other male cast members is a must in an X-Men book.

Yeah, Wood's making good on this book.

And yeah, I'm glad he's not pretending like there aren't other X-men around. I'm digging Kitty's student team a bunch, and I kinda hope he uses Quire at least a bit (since I really enjoyed how he handled him and the rest of the cast in Wolverine and the X-Men: Alpha & Omega; one of the more definitive Quire stories, in my opinion).

I think it was an especially good move to not have any obligatory Cyclops or Wolverine appearances in the first arc; their current roles don't have to be the context for every X-men story.

In some ways it does almost feels like Wolverine is still present in his absence with this team, having personally taken under his wing and trained most of them, and having been Storm's right-hand man for her original tenure as leader of the team. I think it's at least partially his influence that gives this team a lot of it's distinct flavor compared to other teams, like a common denominator to their perspective, sort of like the original team had with Xavier (also, even in his absence). But actually sort of even more so, since not all of these members have actually been on the same team together before.

More potential than Wolverine and Cyclops? I would like to hear more about that :-)

#31 Edited by time (4845 posts) - - Show Bio

@adamtrmm: There more potential cause, they have better powers. Just look at comics now. There much better now. Most of the ladies are in the spotlight. The x-ladies even have own title. X-Men suck 4 the past 6 years cause, it only focus on Cyclops and Wolverine. Now comics don't, cause a lot of ladies in the spotlight.

#32 Edited by adamTRMM (1301 posts) - - Show Bio

@time: I don't like what happened to Wolverine as a character in the past years, his popularity drives it - not what the character is. But Cyclops development (and this also leads to X-Force) is really one of the most exciting things to happen to X-men in years, not just few past but many years. And that's no way has to do anything with his powers, but his personality. To accentuate on characters just because they are ladies, I don't know.. For me, personalities and agendas first - powers will just add them even more badassness.. Actually, what about X-men Legacy? Rogue was a leading character there.

yes i despised this idea when i seen people suggest it, its an insult to every character in the book if they are not called X men
