Or at least it's core members, I haven't read any X-men comics in a while so I just wanted to know if that's cool?
Who are the current X-Men as of December 2012??
@TheCrowbar: So I'm guessing that when ever there is a mission it's whom ever wants dibs on it basically?
Or whomever is needed, power-wise! As for the splinter teams like X-Factor, both X-Forces, and X-treme X-Men... their teams are set (with X-Factor's roster actually dwindling down and X-treme's actually losing and gaining a member)! But as for the "main titles' team... Wolverine and the X-Men has a senior and junior teaching staff with students attending the school and Uncanny X-Men is growing in their ranks. All New X-Men's team seems to be pretty much comprised of Storm, Beast, Kitty, Wolverine and Iceman (don't forget Lockheed). And Astonishing X-Men's team is Wolverine, Northstar, Gambit, Iceman, Warbird, Karma, and Cecilia Reyes. The adjectiveless X-Men title is getting a change in roster in the next issue or so, which will consist of Angel, Chamber, Iceman, Pixie, and Storm. X-Men Legacy has now become a title focusing mainly on Legion. And that's pretty much it! Hope that helps. :)
It's pretty much X-men lite these days. I know that some will disagree with me, but the majority of the X-men that are at the mansion are kind of lame. The bigger names are kind of going rogue and forming their own factions. Team Blue/Orange is where it's at.
Seeing as how the OP asked for core members as opposed to a team, i'd say: Storm, Psylocke, Cable, Dazzler, Scott, Madrox and Kitty f*cking Pryde. Simply because of their current leadership positions. Anyone else is up for debate.
Those actually seem to me like the leaders of various teams!
In that case u forgot to cover Astonishing X-Men... I'd say Northstar is the "leader" (or maybe I'm just saying that because he's more prominent in the title!)
Storm - All New X-Men / X-Men
Psylocke - Uncanny X-Force
Cable - Cable and X-Force
Dazzler - X-treme X-Men
Cyclops - Uncanny X-Men
Madrox - X-Factor
Kitty Pryde - Wolverine and the X-Men
I don't mind having different leaders in the X-Men (they should have done this years ago) but I wish the X-Men were united again (I know this whole "Schism" thing just started, but I don't like the idea about the X-Men not being the family they were years ago.
@papad1992: I never exactly "forgot", i just chose not to include it because i fail to see what relevance that title serves to the X-Verse. And Wolverine's the leader of that team, so, all the more reason for me to exclude it.
I get where you're coming from... I not necessarily a fan of the title itself (it was just a stunt for Northstar's marriage) I just like the real odd roster that this team is composed of! Northstar, Karma, Gambit, Iceman, Wolverine, Warbird, and Cecilia Reyes... I just wished someone else were writing!
@HopesummersFORtheFUTURE: Don't even get me started on that panel!! It just solidified in my mind how much of a douche Cyclops is!!
*Appears to defend team blue.* How dare you! *Pummels*
"Strikes back" and says "How dare YOU!"
It seems like the core group is Wolverine, Storm, Kitty, Iceman and the Beast, but sort of also the O5 for the moment.
Angel, Rachel, Warbird (bleh), and I think Chamber are also at the school, and Northstar, Gambit, Cecilia and Karma are all associated with the Astonishing team.
