    X-Force should drop Jean and Kid Omega imo. Jean shouldn't be in an intelligence team, I'd rather have her on the field as a leader. Omega can't be trusted enough to be put on the X-Men version of Cia.

    Throw in Kwanon, Rachel or Cable as telepaths.

    Honestly, merging Fallen Angels and X-Force makes a hell of a lot of sense. Replace Jean with Kwannon on the intel side, and Kid Omega with Kid Cable on the wetworks side. I don’t like Kid Cable (much prefer the original), but he makes more sense here than Quire IMO.

    Throw in X-23 here or put her on Marauders. Just go down by one book (Fallen Angels).

    That was what I was thinking. I can see the line having an X-Force book though, so maybe Fallen Angels should be the dropped name.

    I think since no writer has ever been able to successfully team Rachel with Scott or Jean that it's time to team her up with Cable. So keep Rachel on the same team with her Brother. It would kind of be an interesting change if Rachel is so angry all the time and the only person who can even begin to talk her down is her brother. Which means that they would be a good fit for X-Force. Rachel was pretty serious about wanting to kill Stryfe and she was barely talked down from that simply because it would have destroyed the timeline, I think Rachel would love the chance to go all out against enemies of Krakoa, plus I think she could work well with Kid Cable or OG Cable.

    Definitely if they bring OG Cable back later I want Rachel to team with him ongoing on whatever team he forms.

    I agree with not really liking Fallen Angels that much, unless they add more members who have the outcast feel. Which would mean moving some of the time lost people to Fallen Angels like Rachel and Bishop both.

    I am ok with Jean being on X-Force but she should be leading instead of Hank, Hank should be working for Jean.

    I’m betting FA ends up being first on the chopping block, so those characters will be up for grabs soon enough regardless.

    Fake Psylocke, fake Cable and a Wolverine clone just aren’t enough to hold an ongoing series IMO.

    X-Force: I would take out Beast because I never liked him and also Jean Grey because she's already on the X-Men title and do not like characters in multiple tames while we have so many to choose from. I would replace them with Magik and the Cuckoos (they count as one), then with the remaining Black Tom, Sage, Wolverine, Kid Omega, Colossus and Domino

    Fallen Angels: I would love to add Rockslide and Anole in there. They are the best friends couple we have besides Sunspot and Cannonball. And they will ad some fun, which is needed with these 3 barely smiling characters: Kwannon, X23 and Kid Cable

    Excalibur: Captain Britain (Betsy), Rogue, Gambit and Rictor. will have to stay, meaning that I would delete Apocalypse and Jubilee from the cast and replace them with Dazzler and Pete Wisdom

    Marauders: Lockheed, Emma Frost, Storm, Bishop and Iceman can all continue to be members of the Marauders. This one is easy. I would replace the old version of Pyro with the new one (Simon) as he and Iceman are cute together. I would give Kitty a break for at leat a year from comic books and make Storm the leader here. Give Kitty's spot to Cannonball.

    X-Men: As Wolverine and Kid Cable are on other teams, I would replace them with Ruby Summers (applause?) and Archangel (why is he on no team yet?). Then with the remainder of the current cast Cyclops, Jean Grey, Rachel Grey Summers, Vulcan, Corsair, and Havok.

    New Mutants: Sunspot, Mirage, Karma, Cypher Chamber and Mondo will stay on the New Mutants. As I gave Magik a spot on X-Force, I will give her place to Pixie (for teleportation and trade Wolfsbane for Husk

    It's a game Mr Cochese. You do not have to reply if you do not like it.

    I can totally see Rachel in a X-Force-esque team. She's not Psylocke but she will get stuff done. She was pretty determined on killing the Sh'iar Secret Council during the Starjammers days, I loved that Rachel.

    I think Magneto is in the title too. I wonder if they'll add more characters keeping the theme of alternate versions of well known characters.
