    Claremont is the biggest believer in XMen being the model minorityand turning the other cheek until humans come to their senses so hed hate this more militant approach. But hed allow it for the orgies.

    I’m good with them I suppose. Cyclops makes tons of sense in his role considering his longstanding run as the X-men’s field leader. And Bishop? Sure, why not. Cable’s a kid now so take the other grizzled badass soldier-cop from the future. And Magik? Well, she’s been the ruler of Limbo and has the magic base covered.

    As for Gorgon, I guess they needed a villain on the group of Captains, so I get his inclusion. But there are few characters in the Marvel U who can match Logan’s experience in battle; so I find it a bit odd that Gorgon, a man he defeated, would be included over him. My guess is there’s some other role that Logan will play which we have yet to learn. He has certainly been close to Moira in a couple of her past lives...hmm...

    Thanks. I’ll check that run out.

    Storm backpedaled on it and admitted she was a failure as a leader because of her decisions at the time. She has yet to recover from that too.

    Funny thing is that I would love to have seen a book with these 4 characters working together more than the ones that are going to be released. I mean, the more I think about it The Captains are one hell of team by themselves. Gorgon may be the weakest link.

    She says she's a failure all the time!! Mutant Massacre somehow became all about HER leadership instead of thr dying Morlocks. She needs to get a grip.

    Gorgon's time as a Hydra general makes him the most qualified for the job after Cyclops who's most familiar with managing mutants, on top of him being a tippy top tier MU fighter.

    Yeah, I’ll have to read this Secret Warriors run, because outside of ‘Enemy of the State’ I haven’t read much else involving Gorgon. All I know is Logan outplayed him in that one, especially when he allowed himself to get captured and had the Sentinels stomp Gorgon’s cult. That was fun.

    Naw, just based his training and experience with war and engaging powerful, hostile forces as part of a unit and as individual Bishop is the the best suited, if not equally to Cyclops to serve as a Captain.

    I wonder if the Captain's rather strong ties with Non-mutant groups also plays a role.

    Cyclops with the Champions, Magik with the Magic Users, Gorgon with the Hand.

    Magik and Gorgon need to kill Xavier to become worthy of the title Captain. Just saying.
    He is the rock that their island nation is built upon. The people of Krakoa know him and what he has done for them over the years, and they look up to him. He might not be RULING Krakoa, but he is definitely leading it.

    I think you're all thinking too hard about a connection that isn't there. They were just picked 'cause why not?
