It is just a plot device. Keep it as is. They stay like that for six issues, a couple tie ins and then they will go back to normal.

I personally like the Top 5 that were chosen. I really cant think of anyone else it just makes sense.

Cyke durrr

Emma shes with Cyke

Magik shes magical

Colossus shes Magiks big bro plus he already got Empowered before

and

Namor ehhhh I guess I aint mad at em I wouldnt mind Storm taking his place

and sidenote ICEman as a choice for the FIREbird?

I would prefer it there were no Phoenix 5 really. I don't like the Phoenix being associated with anything without the last name "Grey".

But I would keep the Phoenix 5 as it is because the costumes look pretty cool.

#15 Posted by tomchu (522 posts) - - Show Bio

SUPER MEGA PHOENIX 5 GOOOOOO!!!

yeahh, it sounds quite bad conceptually, but then again, the outfits are pretty sick.

My Choice: (since its mainly the extinction team)

Cyclops

Storm

Magneto

Namor

Emma Frost

#16 Posted by Pwok21 (2459 posts) - - Show Bio

Magik, Iceman, Nate Grey, Cyke and Emma.

I'll play:

Ideally I'd like to keep it all in the family. Somewhat a thematic commentary on Jean's genotype and why the Phoenix chose her in the first place.

Nathan Grey

Rachel Grey

Scott Summers

Cable

Madelyne Pryor

#25 Posted by knighthood (1693 posts) - - Show Bio

Switch Namor with Rachel Grey and I'd be really interested.

#26 Posted by XsPectre28 (728 posts) - - Show Bio

Xavier

Emma Frost

Rachel

X-man

Cable

All have wielded the phoenix Force or are tied to the force through blood line connection. plus are all omega level mutants

#28 Posted by Soulstealer (825 posts) - - Show Bio

Personally I'd prefer it to never have happened, but just the same Namor being in there annoys me and I'm not even sure why.

@jhazzroucher: wow. storm first choice. i would have never guessed. i cant beat that.

#30 Posted by TheCrowbar (4286 posts) - - Show Bio

Angel

Cyclops

Beast

Iceman

Professor X

#31 Posted by Nightcrawler23 (775 posts) - - Show Bio

Cyclops, Quentin Quire, Beast, and Storm. Led by Hope Summers. I don't want my favs to be a part of this disaster, so I kept them off the list. Sadly, Colossus is already part of the Phoenix Five, a group of Avenger's villains, who won't be villains for two, maybe three more issues.

#32 Posted by amalgamuniverse (334 posts) - - Show Bio

Cyclops

Emma Frost

Storm

Colossus

Magik

She has magical potential (magik)

She has natural defenses to telepathy (emma)

She's a great and experienced leader (cyclops)

She's a powerhouse already (colossus & namor) [little bit of a stretch i know lol]

@jhazzroucher: @BlackArmor: @Dman1366: @BiteMe-Fanboy: @tomchu:

From Merriam-Webster:

over·pow·er

verb \ˌō-vər-ˈpau̇(-ə)r\

Definition of OVERPOWER

transitive verb

1 : to overcome by superior force : subdue

2 : to affect with overwhelming intensity <the stenchoverpowered us>

3 : to provide with more power than is needed or desirable <a dangerously overpowered car>

4: to allow Magneto to have even a fraction of the Phoenix Force

@Onemoreposter: Well yeah, it'd be lie giving Batman a weapon that runs on willpower, but wouldn't seeing Magneto with undeniable force be fun for an issue or two ?

Thor

Magneto

Iceman

#46 Posted by Veitha (3362 posts) - - Show Bio

Emma Frost Psylocke Rachel Grey Quentin Quire Charles Xavier Five of the strongest telepaths with the Phoenix Phorce, they'd be really powerfull.

#47 Edited by Crimsonlord53 (1336 posts) - - Show Bio

I like the idea of keeping it in the family since it was stated that jean was fated to pass the phoenix on to her Descendants.

Rachel

Cabel

Nate/X man

Hope (I think there's more grey DNA in her background then the x-men know)

Maybe Maddie pryor

I think Merriam-Webster's 4th definition is a bit biased.

But then again, its probably true.
