    Yeah that doesnt confirm that Rachel will be gone after the first arc

    There has been no confirmation but in the first story arc she is the least well known character in main cast(Vulcan and Corsair are not in main cast) and I really doubt she will stay over for more than one arc over Wolverine or Jean.

    I think she has chances to stay long. Cyclops will always need a telepath, betsy is on excalibur, Emma is on the marauders and their relationships seems very complicated now, same with Jean she is on x-force and who knows what is her status with Scott (it looks like it is good but no confirmation), Cable's powers barely exist, so Rachel seems like the easiest and obvious choice

    That's what I think as well. I think Jean will show up on the rotation, but Jean's regular book is going to be X-Force. Rachel will probably be Scott's regular telepath. I love that though, I knew the chance of Rachel and Jean being on the same book indefinitely was never going to happen because they have similar powersets, but this way Rachel stays on her Dad's team and she gets to interact with her Mom more often because Jean will probably join them from time to time on missions. Cable will probably join with them for missions occasionally too, depending on how far away from base the Fallen Angels takes him.

    You think that Kid Cable/Wi-Fi is more well known than Rachel?? He's been around for 10 months, I totally disagree with that. And given that both Jean and Logan have their own book I don't see them staying longer than Rachel.

    Agreed. If Jean is a requirement for X-Force (which who knows given they also have QQ), I would agree it would behoove Scott to have a telepath with him. And if they are going into space to deal with Vulcan, Rachel has been shown to be able to send her astral form across universes, so it is a good ability for someone to have. And yes, Nate's powers are supremely hampered right now with the TO virus. So he's functioning at like 35%.

    Yeah, Nate will primarily be in Fallen Angels, Jean and Logan will primarily be in X-Force. It will be a good thing if Rachel is given the opportunity to stay with Scott. I am highly looking forward to this Summers Reunion, especially to see Jean-Rachel-Scott-Cable acting like a family (of sorts). I hope she doesn't fall into a "Mom" "Dad" thing with them, only as she is far too old and that's not their relationships really. In the moment of like someone getting hurt, sure.

    Also I'm interested in seeing Rachel ACTUALLY interact with Corsair. They have been in the same books 2 times now (Excalibur cross-over and RAFTOSE) but have never spoken to each other of their relation. Again, weird.

    Kid Cable IS Cable, so yeah he is well known.

    He is going to be a regular in Fallen Angels so he isn't going anywhere soon. I imagine if any of these books struggle at minimum they will get a 6 to 8 issue run because they usually pre-write issues in advance so it takes them a bit before the cancellation takes effect and they usually wrap up the current story. Marvel has always been really good at wrapping up the story for cancellation. DC sometimes just cancels books without finishing the story.

    I think Cable will pop up in X-Force and X-Men occasionally to interact with his Mom and Dad and his sister Rachel. I hope they keep the emphasis on how important Rachel is to him, I would love that if there is a bit of little brother awe for his big sister. She did take out the entire enemy base practically by herself at the end of X-Force and he seemed pretty happy that he had her back.

    I disagree. They maybe the same character in name, but they are completely different in terms of who is more known. That's like saying Jeen is more well known than Jean, even if they are the same character.

    I was saying Cable is more well known but not Kid Cable though but still the imagery and name recognition would be higher for Wifi than for Rachel. Either way she is on bottom end of popularity on the team and with rotating cast, it is very unlikely that her role would be maintained.
    I hope for Rachel to be there for more than one arc but I dont expect that to be the case.

    No, I never said that Kid Cable is more well known than Cable. He IS more well known than Rachel (thats what you were originally disputing) just like Teen Jean is more well known than Rachel bc both are Cable and Jean, respectively

    You do realise that there are other telepaths in roster including Psylocke, Captain Britain and QQ(who is apparently stronger than Rachel). So she is not really needed in the team

    All those characters like Jean and Cable have permanent homes elsewhere which was the point that was being made

    Pretty sure they are perfectly capable of being on more than one book at a time

    Youíre missing the point. We obviously know they can be in more than 1 book. Thatís already happening when they launched

    Rotating cast aside, I do hope Rachel is one of the "regulars" in X-Men.
    She's always been one of my faves since I saw her in New Mutants #18 and throughout UXM and especially, Excalibur.
