    Default What would be YOUR Wave 1 line-ups?

    I think we can all agree that, like them or not, the announcements were very surprising.
    But which teams would YOU have chosen?

    The thread only has three rules:
    1) You have to keep at least 5 of the 6 team names.
    2) Keep at least one member from the announced books.
    3) You can add one different team, but there should be a total of 6 books only.

    Important: this is not a thread to critique the Wave 1 books. Let's just have some fun and come up with cool new teams

    Mine:

    X-MEN: the flagship
    Cyclops
    Jean Grey (with a new costume, for god's sake)
    Storm (Marauders sounds fun, but I need her on the main book)
    Iceman
    Monet
    Beast
    Trinary (she had potential and I want a tech person)

    FALLEN ANGELS: three mutants who have been wronged trying to find new places in the world. I'd use the book as a sort of new "X-men Unlimited", with a rotating cast where characters would be added so they could be rehabilitated for good and move on to fresh new directions.
    Archangel: the book would explore how much he managed to move on from Apocalypse's hold and find balance with this Archangel persona. He'd be in charge of his company again and living in San Francisco as one of mutantkind's most prominent spokespeople.
    Revanche: building her own path away from Betsy. She'd adopt a new look unique to herself while trying to find a purpose after finally being in control of her own life and body.
    Cable: the return of the classic version to a changed world. Is he an aged up Kid Cable? Whatever happened to Wi-fi and why does Cable need Warren and Kwannon's help so much?
    Note: Revanche and Archangel would not be romantically linked. These three heroes would be united out of need by Cable and help each other evolve to new chapters in their lives.

    NEW MUTANTS: the legacy of the X-men continues and Dani's team is there to make sure the new generation of mutants find a better place to live in. They'd act as a non-profit organization helping mutants in need all over the world.
    Mirage (the leader)
    Sunspot (the money)
    Prodigy (the brain, dating Husk)
    Husk (the idealist)
    Surge (trying to give others the support the X-men gave her)
    Magik (every team needs a kick-ass powerhouse)
    Mondo (why not)
    Chamber (the rebellious one)
    Karma (Dani's right hand)
    PS: the team would be BIG because members would rotate in and out and other younger mutants would appear depending on the mission/locale.

    EXCALIBUR: love that this looks like a more fantasy-oriented book with a strong connection to the Otherworld. Should be really fun, but the cast is kind of random? Mine would be:
    Betsy Braddock (as either Psylocke or Captain Britain)
    Faiza Hussain (she's awesome and needs more exposure. Just give her a new codename that's not the team's name)
    Pixie (she's half-fairy and from Wales, she's too perfect a fit not to be here)
    Banshee (explore his mystical connections and his lost daughter Syrin)
    Colossus (our knight in shining armor)
    Cypher (love his new look and I want more Doug/Betsy interactions, creepiness aside)
    Kitty and Lockheed (I'd actually want a Kitty solo, but she would be a nice link to the original team)
    Nightcrawler would also be here if Marauders wasn't such a perfect fit for him, I'd have Kylun instead.

    MARAUDERS: X-men as pirates - this would be my big 90s homage.
    Nightcrawler (captain!!!)
    Emma Frost
    Rogue
    Gambit (pissed off at having to join a new Marauders)
    Jubilee
    Bishop
    Marrow (I want more Emma/Sarah in my life)
    Hellion
    One of them is actually a disguised Lady Mastermind

    X-FORCE: mutant CIA sounds like a perfect concept, I'd keep it.
    Sage (perfect for the intelligence part)
    Domino (it's not X-force without her)
    X-23 (Logan can keep X-men)
    Rachel (a better fit than Jean)
    Warpath
    Omega Sentinel
    Vanisher
    In the future, Cable would be back.

    For the most part, I like the teams so I donít know what Iíd change. Fallen Angels is iffy to me but whatever. Anyways here we go!

    X-Men

    Same idea as everyone being on the team, but I wouldnít start with the Summers family reunion. So for the first arc:

    Cyclops
    Jean Grey
    Wolverine
    Penance
    Magneto
    Sunspot

    Excalibur

    This team is almost perfect, just needs to get rid of Rogue and maybe add an OG Excalibur member.

    Captain Britain (Betsy)
    Gambit
    Nightcrawler
    Jubilee
    Rictor
    Siryn
    Apocalypse

    Marauders

    This book is perfect, but if it were me:

    Kitty Pryde
    Rogue
    Emma Frost
    Iceman
    Bishop
    Storm
    Pyro

    I donít think New Mutants or X-Force need to be changed but Fallen Angels could maybe add Hellion and Mercury.

    Love your ideas and line-ups, I just wanted to point out that Pixie is Welsh, not Irish, and likely has a biological connection to the X-villain Mastermind.

    Thanks. Someone else pointed that out already. I got confused, I'll edit that post.

    Default Switching the Dawn of X Line-Ups

    I've seen some complaints of the roster(s) chosen for the books and I thought about having a thread about changes you'd make when choosing the line-ups. To keep this a bit different than other threads asking to create your own line-ups, I've gonna have to give the suggestion/guideline to only use characters already announced or used in a book already. Also try not to add or subtract too many members from a particular roster. Otherwise, have at it.

    That said, I'll go first.

    X-Men
    No changes, it's a rotating roster.

    Marauders
    Gambit (leader due to nature, Storm basically is leading though)
    Storm
    Rogue
    Kwannon
    Moonstar
    Pyro

    Mission Statement; same as before, but powered by the Thieves & Assassins Guild instead of the Hellfire Trading Company

    X-Force
    Sunspot (leader, bringing back the AIM connection)
    Bishop
    Emma Frost
    Sage
    Domino
    Wolverine
    Cypher

    Misson Statement; same, but more members clearly associated with espionage, information gathering or black-ops

    Excalibur
    Psylocke (leader)
    Wolfsbane
    Chamber
    Colossus
    Magik
    Black Tom
    Mondo

    Mission Statement; same, now full of Europeans! Also magic.

    New Mutants
    Jean Grey (leader)
    Iceman
    Beast
    Shadowcat
    Karma
    Jubilee
    Rictor
    Quintin

    Mission Statement; less of a rescue Cannonball mission, more of a teach new generation of mutants who might also go to space for some reason!

    Fallen Angels
    Kid Cable
    X-23
    Apocalpyse

    Misson Statement; same edgyness, more Apocalypse x K!Cable drama.

    I’ve been doing something similar while I ride the bus, and while I love most of my team chemistries, I’m coming up empty dealing with the X-Force/New Mutants generation.
