    Default Create Your Own Five Person Flagship Team

    Here's mine:




    My thought is way too often team books, don't leave much room to tell character driven stories that has time to focus on their histories, powers, character, or giving them a narrative a place to start or end. I think the above team has the profile, interactions, and familiarity to combat most threats, is classic X-men, while making a complete team.




    You can also choose a supporting cast if you like but your five character will make up the team and will be the focus of your hypothetical book. Think in terms of NXM:

    Just five is tough. Wouldn't be able to meet my "at least one next-gen mutant" ideal team.

    Jean
    Logan
    Storm
    Magneto
    Rogue

    That's the obvious choice.

    I'd go with something a little different, but still solid:

    Storm-classic leader, wide range of powers

    Logan-classic star power, scrapper/tracker

    Forge-better inventor than Beast, also brings magic to the table, and diversity

    Karma-an underrated psi, and now that she's a billionaire she can bankroll the team too

    Manifold-the newbie, but with connections to Gateway, and his teleportation gives the team range

    A truly global team that hasn't been done before, but the Storm/Logan combo gives it prestige enough to work.

    They can be assisted by Psylocke, Gambit, Monet, Rictor and Shattestar for funsies factor.
    Let the flames destroy all but that which is pure and true!

    Love this idea! Also like the OP's choice's! However, my alternate five would be......

    Rogue (Tank)
    Nightcrawler (Scrapper)
    Gambit (Blaster/Corrupter)
    Storm (Defender)
    X aka Charles Xavier in his new bod. (Leader/Dominator)



    On Support:
    Forge
    Cecilia Reyes


    I choose my team since all the characters involved have pretty strong connections with each other and for the 3-way fight for who should be the leader. The drama relived from the original secret war between Xavier and Storm. However, with a nuance of Rogue now being fully capable to make her claim. Only for both to succeed to Charles that he should lead the team by showing them that he is passed his old hangups and now has the vitality to be an effective all around leader.

    I like this one

    Does Flagship mean it would have to be one of the big books that sell well like Uncanny, and not a spin off with b-c-d-f list characters?

    I really liked Morrison's New X-Men team.

    So going to go with a rift on that with some of the core members plus some changes:

    1) Jean
    2) Cyclops
    3) Wolverine
    4) Rogue
    5) Cannonball
