Posted by FernandoGrey (233 posts) - - Show Bio

What if Storm became absolute leader of the X-Men and form a X-Team by her own term, who she will choose?:

  • The psychic/telepath: Jean Grey
  • The master thief/manipulator: Gambit
  • The tech expert: Forge
  • The force and medical field expert: Cecilia Reyes
  • The teleporter: Blink
  • The brute strength: Gentle
  • The killing machine: X-23

With this team, Storm can outtake any threats cause by adversaries or friends. Give opinions!!!!!!! Thanks!!!!

@FernandoGrey: Storm's already taking control of the X-men, haven't you heard?

this is to be her team, and I think it looks pretty good.

that said, I totally wouldn't mind seeing Gambit or Cecilia or even Forge show up..

@dangallant984: Lol not Gambit pls. Because then Magneto will somehow show up, for obvious reasons.

haha! yeah, that's the kind of thing I don't want to see from this book. Or any book. It's too bad, I like Rogue and I like Gambit, but they really do bring each other down at this point. Maybe he could turn up in X-force, I wouldn't hate that.

This is going to be GREAT! This and Uncanny X-force is where it's at! Marvel NOW has really got me hooked! :D

Sub Jubilee I with Cecilia Reyes and I'll be happy with the XX Team.

@dangallant984: I know that but i feel that like most sub team based of the philosophy of the X-men, that gonna be temporary like for example the X-treme X-Men that was a short-lived Storm's team. I like the idea that i proposed for a new team for Storm.

Why would Storm pick Forge, Cecelia Reyes, Gentle and Blink?

@Squares: Forge was her lover for a period. They remained friends since their separation. She need someone highly wise in technology and he is the perfect candidate.

Cecilia Reyes, in my own opinion, is a powerful ally that need to be used in many situation due her force field that can be useful at defensive or offensive actions. With proper training, she can be at the same level in power of Susan Richards' force field power. She is a genius level in health field that can help to heal any non lethal injuries of her fellow friends. So, for those reason, she is needed.

Blink is an enigmatic and powerful mutant due her power of teleportation and bloodline of Apocalypse, that anytime involuntarily can mutate to something farrrr more powerful. Her teleportation is needed and it would look awesome when they arrive with the teleporting halo around their feet in provoking pose ready to fight.

Gentle is her disciple in many occasions, she need his as her physical powerful fighter. With Forge on her team, he can help to create a new technology to help him to use his full power without harm himself. Beside, he is cool character when he is mad!!!

@FernandoGrey: I don't think that Cecilia is a genius, but other than that, I totally agree with your reasons for picking both her and Forge. And they're both just great characters!

Blink you're just not gonna sell me on, as I've never really been a fan. Plus I feel that Storm would be more likely to choose Pixie at this point. Plus I think it would be cool to see Pixie training her magic with Forge, so that's another thing that would make me more interested in seeing her in this role.

Gentle I could go either way with; I honestly don't think Storm would pick him for this role, knowing how he feels about violence, but I do like the character, and it would be nice to see some of the younger characters.

you could use Gentle if you want him to die I would use Rockslide instead and add Anole for stealth

haha! actually, I would like that. Actually, If you replaced Blink and Gentle with Pixie, Rockslide and Anole, I'd probably really like this team. What about this:

@FernandoGrey: Actually, for quite some time Storm and Forge weren't on speaking terms, and from what I recall from Ghostboxes, the last time they met Forge was insane and left quite a bad impression on Storm.

Yes, I'm very well aware of the powers of the individuals you mentioned, I want to know why Storm would pick them. I don't think she even knows Blink.
