    Yes. My main problem is the clones. They already have their own book, those spots could’ve been given to someone else. And I don’t want this book to get dragged into Weapon X nonsense seeing as their book is written by Taylor too.

    Funny enough the only character in Red I don't like is Jean, so I am looking forward to it.

    It was a huge mistake to market Red based on the roster - which isn't by itself going to cause anyone other than X-23 fans to buy the book. Instead they needed to market it based on a premise or some other hook that makes the book seem interesting. Otherwise the entire decision to add the book to your pull list is based on whether you like the characters or want to see those characters together on a team (which few people do).

    I don't think it's perfect, but the only one member of this team that disappoints me is Gentle - and to a much lesser extent Kurt.

    I'm more excited for this lineup than I was for Gold because I like seeing a fresh, new lineup of characters that often haven't gotten the opportunity to interact together so new dynamics can be made. Gentle is the weirdest of the New X-Men kids to get a chance at becoming an X-Man, and especially in a team with Namor... but that's kind of what makes him work, that promise that what Namor did to Wakanda is going to have to be addressed. The thing that has me down about Nightcrawler is that he's playing double duty, when I'd prefer if he was just on one team. Laura being off of a team at the start of RessurXion was weird, and I'm excited to see what her dynamic with Jean becomes. Gabby is sort of Laura's hanger-on, and that's fine. In the 90's we had Jubilee after all. Namor respects Jean, and actually feels like one of the most natural choices for this team as a result of that, and I definitely do NOT think he and Jean will be shipped. Trinary is exciting because we don't often see new mutant characters that last so for all intents and purposes if she does then it's fantastic. Lastly, we have Rogue or Gambit, and at this point the chances of it being either of them are great.

    These are all characters who have not often interacted with Jean, or with each other, and that's what excites me. It's time for fresh new dynamics. There's also nothing saying that Jean won't interact with any other characters in guest spots, which she almost certainly will, and then there's that whole pesky mini-series leading up to her return where she will absolutely be interacting with her friends...

    Also: keep normal Logan as far away from this book as they can.

    It's fine. Definitely some different characters in the line-up, which is nice. I'd have preferred someone else to Namor honestly though. Just never cared much for him. I'll give it a shot, despite my lack of enthusiasm.

    I don't see the problem with Taylor bringing in characters he's already familiar with.

    I suspect the concern is that said characters may get an unbalanced amount of screen time. Of course, we'll have to wait and see what actually transpires.

    I got this from Jean's appreciation thread. This pretty much covers it, what people think about this team. Not sure which one is more funny, Emma's or Jeen's quotes. Although Sinister quote is funny too, but the other two takes the cake.

    Thanks Juan678 for the pic.

    One of the more creative ways to express an opinion I've seen.

    That's awesome.

    I mean, is there some kind of community liaison or does Marvel just pull stuff out of their butts and then whine when sales slump? Time and time and time again, guys just listen to the community and stop trying to shove things we don't want down our throats. sweet mercy.

    Gotta be honest, pretty much sums up my feelings. IMO Taylor could’ve done a better job in balancing the cast with known X-characters and unknowns that he wants to build up.

    And, yes, I realize there are only two unknowns there. Three if you count Gabby (meaning in terms of general public knowledge of the character). Plus Namor, who is known but not typically associated with the X-men.

    So three known quantities: Jean, Nightcrawler, Laura

    Three unknowns: Gentle, Gabby, Tri-whatever

    One known non-X-character: Namor
