    Default Your starting lineup for the X-Men in the MCU?

    Ok it is a given when Disney gets the X-Men back they are starting from scratch as far as the movies go. If you were in charge who would be in your lineup for their MCU debut? Xavier being around is a given but the rest is up to you. Who would make up the best team?

    Cyclops
    Jean Grey
    Polaris
    Colossus
    Iceman
    Beast

    I really want to add Storm, but her powers just seem to never really work that great in live action to me so I left her out. I also would leave Wolverine out of the first movie because I think they need to establish the X-Men team proper before they bring him in since he casts such a big shadow. Plus saving him for movie 2 would give them a little more time between Jackman and whoever it is that has to step into his shoes which might go over better with the audience.

    I'd go with
    Storm
    Cyclops
    Jean
    Iceman
    Beast.
    Basically the 05 without Angel and instead Storm. I would rather go with Colossus than Beast, but the former is in Deadpool and I think they may not reboot the Deadpool movies.

    I don't want to retread old steps from the foX-Men, but I don't want to isolate anyone from it, so here's my lineup with the older X-Men:
    Storm
    Beast
    Iceman

    Now let's get to the ones where mainstream audiences don't know about:

    Armor - she's normally depicted as the audience surrogate in lieu of Kitty, foX-Men Rogue, or Jubilee, so she's going to keep playing that role. Plus her powers are made to be visually interesting.
    Rachel Summers - Mainstream audiences don't know much about her. Hope even made it into a movie before her. She's also a bit of a meta joke, seeing how she'll lack her comic counterpart's history, her conflict will be that she'll need to break out of her parents' shadow.

    Now I'm thinking of a film where they recruit Storm out from under the thumb of the Shadow King. Better than the 132nd fight against Magneto.

    Beast
    Storm
    Rogue
    Gambit
    Jubilee
    and Nightcrawler instead of Wolverine

    Storm (team leader)
    Iceman (his homosexuality will be acknowledged)
    Rogue (flight and super strength)
    Gambit and Jubilee (with updated costumes so they don’t look like 90s relics)
    Nightcrawler (not socially awkward or into self-mutilation)

    CGI Colossus, Storm, Nightcrawler, Wolverine as teachers and field agents.
    Emma Frost and Hank McCoy as noncombat educators.

    Jubilee, Iceman, Sunfire, Prodigy, Stepford Cuckoos, and Dust as students.

    No Xavier, no Magneto, no Mystique, no Phoenix, no Wolverine til the third act, no Cyclops til the post credits scene.

    I can already see the "x-mensowhite" hashtags with this team. Good team though objectively speaking.

    I would go with Storm being the last recruited,they find her in Africa because it would be cool imo to have part of the movie take place there. Instead of charles alone finding her as a goddess they entire team will find her a young african princess using her abilities to upflit her own kingdom as the reigning princess of an expanding kenyan community.

    Bobby will be in the movie and his ultra consevative parents have sent the teen to kenya to conversion therapy under the guise of missionary work.

    The remaing team would be thunderbird who arrested for ripping apart the keystone pipeline.

    The actual x-men that charles already has would be Jean, Scott and Lorna so by the end of the movie we would have

    jean
    scott
    lorna
    storm
    iceman
    thunderbird>
    Don't let anyone else hold the candle that lights the way to your future because only you can sustain the flame.

    No Magneto and definitely no Mystique till at least the 2nd film.
    I'm a fighter. I fight for normal people. But I'll never be one. I'm not a hero. Some people can't handle that.
