Which characters do you think would make up the best team of X-Men? Plus, what would their team name be?

#2 Posted by HammerTron (618 posts) - - Show Bio

The team name should be X-Men. The team should at least have Cyclops, Colossus, and Wolverine.

X-men Green Strike Force:

Leader: Storm

Co-Leader: Apocalypse

members: Colossus, Rogue, Arcade, Hollow/Penance, Jubilee, Psylocke, Jean Grey, Nightcrawler, Cyclops

A team in which we see character we don't see now/often, and Iceman tapping into his "untapped potential", where a bunch of mutants who were kids in the past, leading the new generation of mutants. Something like New Mutants or Generation X, but a lot less serious unlike Generation Hope.

Generation NeXt

Leader: Iceman

Co-Leader: Chamber, Warlock and Cypher (Warlock and Cypher pretty much work together)

Members: Dust, Surge, Prodigy, Hellion, X23, Anole, Rockslide

Unless you mean "best" as in "strongest",

then the conventional: Cyclops, Wolverine, Emma Frost, Psylocke, Archangel, Colossus...

Wolverine & His Teen Girl Sidekicks.

It would be Wolverine and a bunch of teenage girls...plus Kitty Pryde, because she used to be a teenager.

Well this would be My X-men team

The structure of the team would be like this

Team Leader: Storm; why? Already a proven leader, with powers that allow control of the field and flow of combat

Team Co-Leader, Iceman; Why, Bobby cares deeply for those with him, he is a true threat when pushed, and would in honestly thrive in this role

Brain Power/ Strategic personal, Prodigy & Sage. Why? Prodigy is under used,and sage is Awesome but both of them Are dual threats, both fast thinkers coupled with HIGH end skills

Recon; Nocturne why? her powerset plays heavy to true Recon, but is also no slouch in Combat

Powerhouses: Exodus, Warpath, and Cloak & M; Why? Storm is more than capable of holding Exodus' respect, and lets face it, this guy is a beast, but also written poorly. Warpath, should not have to reason him nor should i have to with M. Now on to cloak. While a mutate, the Xmen have picked up such folk before, and this would have to be cloak sans Dagger, for him to a powerhouse, she would have to be dead. this would unleash him as it were, and the X-men would give him an Outlet

Wildcards:

Adam X, Would Revamp his look. Why, lets face facts, this guy is Dangerous, he is a Skilled fighter, who possesses exceptional control of his power. Also As close as SUMMERS will ever get to my team

Scalphunter: Acts of Redemption( the real one, not the Clone BS. as his healing factor never lets him really die)

Pete Wisdom. Ties to Nocturne

Leader- Cable > i chose Cable because he is one of the best leaders in the game

2nd in command- Rachel Grey & Xman > Cable's Brother & Sister nuff Said

tactics/strategy- Sage & Prodigy > of course Cable will be in rthis category too because he has the final say but both sage & prodigy are qualified.

bruisers- outlaw( see 198), Warpath, Dakan > two strong & vicious fighters

long range- Chamber, Blink, Maverick 2( Bolt aka Chris Bradley) > energy projection, teleportation, & weapons/energy projection nuff said

specialteams- Elixer, Lady Mastermind > omega level healer & an illusionist( & when backed by Rachel Or Xman Or even Synch makes powerful misdirection)

Powerhouse- Synch, Mondo, Psi~lord( Adult Franklin Richards) > a mutant tracker with the ability to use others powers, an omni~elemental, & Psi-Lord( Will only have telekinesis, telepathy, & low level reality alteration)

#14 Posted by X_Person (17 posts) - - Show Bio

Nightcrawler, Colossus, Gambit, Wolverine, Deadpool, and Psylocke(current) for an awesome recon team

As for overall power, I would have these omega level mutants/potential omegas:

Iceman-becomes living ice that can melt or evaporate and still live, and if there is water present, can turn it into a weapon

Vulcan-can manipulate all forms of energy and is classified as an above omega level mutant

Legion-despite his identity disorder and being unpredictable, has an arsenal of different powers at his disposal that include reality and time manipulation, soul and ability absorption, spontaneous adaption, and more

Scarlet Witch-also unpredictable and unstable, but can alter reality, transform matter, shoot beams, change probability, and some more

Elixir-ultimate healer and can reverse heal,in other words, cause pain and death, hey may be able to alter his genetic code as well

Synch-If you put him with all these guys, he would be almost too powerfull

Kid Omega-although he's a kid, is a super genius, telepath, and has telekinetic powers, his secondary mutation allowed him to be pure psionic energy, has also tapped into the phoenix force before

Honestly, I'm ready for the new guard to come in.

Leader: Magik

Dazzler, Longshot, Karma, Shatterstar, Cannonball, Rictor, Siryn, Mirage, Sunspot, Empath, Strong Guy, Monet, Northstar, Magma, Radius, Iceman, Firestar, Justice, Phoebe Cuckoo (leading her sisters), Sage, Havok and Polaris.

Big lineup, but there is enough range of power levels, potential and experience to handle more threats than the current main lineup.

#22 Edited by zrhodahero (32 posts) - - Show Bio

I have two teams that I would love to see:

Team 1

  • Cable - I think cable is one of the most badass and interesting characters in comics. I say give him some of his tk/tp, and some big guns, and let him go to town. I wouldn't want him to be in god mode, just high level TK and average TP. His strategic mind and leadership skills would make any team a force to be reckoned with.
  • Deadpool - The merc with a mouth is deadly. Also, dp and cable are friends, and i loved their series.
  • Rogue - Total powerhouse. I think she would fit this team well.
  • Gambit - Remy is a great character. I always thought his power set was cool.
  • Beast - Hank is a genius.
  • Domino - Her and cable are a good couple, she is very dangerous, and it never hurts to have a little good luck.
  • Bishop - It would be hard to have him and cable on the same team, but ignoring their history, i think they would be great partners. Both are soldiers, and are willing to do whatever it takes.
  • Hope - The mutant messiah. Cable's adopted daughter would be the first in line to join his team. Her powers are insane and would make this team epic.
  • Psylocke - Because she is a sexy ninja

Team 2

  • Professor X - Chuck needs to step back into a leadership role. He is the founder of the X-men and a world-class telepath.
  • Nate Grey - Give Nate back a large portion of his powers. I would like to see X-man bond with professor X, and expand his relationships with other marvel characters.
  • Storm - She is one of the most powerful mutants, and has a connections to pretty much everyone in the marvel universe.
  • Angel - There is a lot going on with this character right now. I want him to go back to being warren, while keeping the new look and powers.
  • Kitty Pryde - Good on any team, cool powers, gets along with everyone.
  • Iceman - Bobby is another one of my favorites. He works well in any team.
  • Blink - For teleportation
  • Magneto - Great in a leadership role, and he's no joke in a fight
  • Colossus - Another powerhouse. I would have him lose the whole Cyttorak connection.
  • Scarlet Witch - Her recent appearances have shown us how powerful she is. She also has the potential to go crazy, which can provide so interesting storylines.
  • Dani Moonstar - give her powers back. She's a very strong character even without powers.

Cyclops, Emma Frost, Kitty Pryde, Colossus, Beast, Storm, Wolverine plus someone young like Pixie, Armor etc.

Name: Astonishing X-Men ( obviously ) :D

#26 Posted by Backflip (2266 posts) - - Show Bio

Story: Magneto's disillusion with the current regime and his inability to understand why the mutant race cowers away on Utopia whilst being constantly bombarded by anti mutant regimes, whether it be Bastion, or the Avengers etc. This cumulates in a literal schism of epic proportions upon Utopia. Magneto attempts to seize power from Cyclops and initiate an attack on the government as a reminder that Mutant aren't to be trifled with, however, with aid from the JGS's faculty, the X-Men are successful in both preventing the attack and fighting Magneto to a standstill until he's forced to retreat. However, whilst he and his new found brotherhood return to Genosha, in his wake, he destroys Utopia, sinking it into Atlantis. Wolverine and Beast both tragically lost their lives. Making an exodus back to Westchester, the previously split X-Men groups reunite in wake of this catastrophic event.

The X-Men

This would be my X-Men team, and as you can see their expansive, but more importantly, their diverse and powerful. Their mandate is simple, protect Mutant-Kind, Protect the World.

Cyclops - Leader. Cyclops is arguably the best field leader in the entire Marvel Universe, and equally one of it's best on the go Tacticians. He's the natural choice to lead this X-Men team as he commands respect, and has immense amounts of experience and is well suited in the field.

Emma Frost - The Telepath. Emma would split her time with her teaching duties as the Head Mistress of the Academy. Still possesses her sarcastic flair, and is often at odds with the other girls on the team.

Shadowcat - Recon/Moral Centre. Shadowcat is arguably the perfect human, her moral convictions are almost flawless and since Whedon's run on Astonishing X-Men it's safe to say Kitty's inane desire to do good, and be good outweighs the dubiousness of some of her counterparts (Read as Emma). She's also an expert h2h fighter and her intagability will see her often sent on Recon missions alongside Nightcrawler. Finally, Scott believes she can be the future leader, and she'll be casually groomed to succeed him. Possible love triangle between Colossus, Iceman and Kitty.

Iceman - Elemental/Joker. Bobby's job is simple, contain the enemy with his powers, and keep the banter flowing. He's incredibly powerful, but doesn't quite realize it yet; although Emma won't let that go on for much longer. Furthermore, Bobby is a 05 member, and I think the familiarity is important to Scott as he continues to leader the X-Men through a tough and straining time. Crushes on Kitty.

Nightcrawler - Teleporter/Soul of the team. Nightcrawler's ressurection was a byproduct of Magik's and Pixie's fight on Utopia that resulted in a rip forming between the heavenly planes, which allowed Nightcrawler to effectively fall through the hole. The X-Men were overjoyed with the return of their blue fuzzball, however secretly, Nightcrawler feels torn, torn between his regret at losing out on eternal piece in Heaven and his obligation to his friends. Primarily recon or last minute saves via his teleportation.

Colossus - Brawler. Piotr has lost the Juggernaut powers, thankfully restoring his personality and soul. He still continues to be the Siberian express that his team needs and adores.

Sage - Tech Expert/Tactician/Reserve Telepath. Cyclops may do the leading whilst on the battle field, but the prep is all covered by Sage and her super computer. Sage is the best prepper in Marvel, period, and her super computer will allow her to quickly figure out resolutions to even the most difficult scenarios. Furthermore, her Cyberpathy will allow her to be immensely useful in technical situations. Her telepathy is occasionally used, but doesn't really compare to Emma's.

Psylocke - Ninja/Telekinetic. Psylocke in this reality still makes ample use of her Telekinesis, and her telepathy is reserved for her Psychic Katana. Furthermore, she still possesses the enchantments from Jaime rendering her immune to telepathy and reality warping. Offensive member of the team, Psylocke is used to being upclose and personal with the enemy.

Northstar - The Speedster. Northstar is the fastest man on the planet. It makes sense then that he'd be on the team as he provides a valuable asset on top of his already formidable photo-kinetic powers.

X-Faction: A team that serves the role of both X-Force and X-Treme X-men; finding and solving threats to Earth-616 from the rest of the multiverse before they become a danger.

AoA Nightcrawler- Team leader, teleporting swordsman. Determined to make sure that the kind of dystopian future that he comes from never happens again.

Mystique- Shape-shifting assasin. Deputy leader and alternate-universe mother to Nightcrawler. Sees joining the team as a chance to make up for her past failures as a mother to the 616-Nightcrawler.

Dark Beast- Hank Mccoy, without the morals. Sceince/technology expert and the team's answer to Wolverine.

Ruby Summers- Daughter of Cyclops and Emma Frost in an alternate future. Like Nightcrawler, she's seen how bad the future can become, and is determined to fight to make the world a better place.

Martha Johnson- Telepathic brain in a jar. Serves as the team's intelligence and long-distance recon. Won't allow any more mutants to be abused like she was.

Adam X- half-Shi'ar, blood-igniting swordsman. Alien expert and general wildcard.

I was just going to something similar. I seems like a such a waste that they were together for such short time and all that potential about what the team meant went out the door when AvX happened. I like the idea of an Super X-team that would come together for special world saving missions, setting all differences aside for the greater good. Even villain could be on the team and non-mutants why not. But i guess that's what the Avengers are doing now with their current team.

I think the best X-men team you could make would be lead not by a single character, but by a council of core members who decided the direction of the extended team. I picture Storm being in charge of this with Wolverine, Cyclops, Emma, Kitty, and sometimes Beast, Iceman, or Rogue. This core team would be responsible for both the X-men and the school, and would have representation on the Avengers (Wolverine, Rogue, and Beast) as well as free agents who were not based at the school (say, Psylocke, Gambit, Cecilia Reyes, Northstar, etc).

In addition to this core team, there would of course be a student team, which I picture being facilitated chiefly by Kitty with help from other members of the core team, and sometimes other students (as not all students would be in training to be X-men)

I kinda like the 90's flavour of this team; the new guard of the blue team overlapping into generation X.

Much as I love Madrox, he might be overkill on a team with Synch and Rogue, and Guido I could take or leave, but otherwise, I could see myself really enjoying this bunch.
