    Scott's much more about his personality and method than his powers. I don't see anyone else in the 616 measuring up to that. Besides, isn't legacy code for retired?

    I mean, technically yes. It's not that I would like Scott to have a copy running around, I was wondering what others thought about the situation. Although I have to say, I like your take on the situation.

    Scott's legacy character is Surge, but apparently nobody has the wits to actually develop what could be an amazing dynamic.

    Ah, if someone would use any of the New X-men characters besides X-23...

    I gotta disagree with that. I dont see any of his kids as legacy characters for him. They dont have his powers and they havent used his codename and havent even taken up his mantle in terms of attributes or role within the X-men.

    I have to agree - there is always something visual in a legacy character that calls back to the original somehow - Ruby and Surge both have the potential to be Scott's legacy characters, but that would require them to be used somehow.


    Or in Ruby's case, to actually be introduced into mainline continuity somehow.

    I know it was because Bendis was creating new mutants to use and all, but it never made sense that Surge and some of the older Academy X students stayed at the school when Scott and Co. came to recruit.

    110% agreed! Man, I miss the Academy X/New X-Men kids...

    At least Elixir's still popping in occasionally. But, darn, the X-Office really dropped the ball with Surge.

    Hickman... I know you prolly never thought of it... but please somehow bring Ruby into the fold.

    Plus with having gone Dark Phoenix Scott had a better sense of Yana having to hold in the Darkchylde. But in the end they come across as somewhat codependent substitute siblings more than anything else.
    That's the way I thought of it as well. At shippiest, Cyke and Yana, to me, would be platonic life partners. But alas, editorial even took this relationship away.

    When will Logan call out Jean for putting his clone and his clone's underage clone in an X-Squad?

    Yana definitely isn't into guys. It is probably for the best.
    Scott needs more not romantic relationships.

    I don't remember if this was already confirmed, but if it isn't I'm thinking most of you will love hearing the confirmation that Rosenberg isn't writing any X-book after Hickman

    Well, that's good, but doesn't mean any X-character I like won't be borrowed by him.

    I just don't want him near Cyclops, at least until he figures out how to recover the magic he had back then.
