    Default Your dream Xmen roster.

    I have just started reading The Xmen and am really enjoying it. I also have some exposure to them from the 90s cartoon.

    If you can pick your dream roster who would be on it? Limit it to 7 members.

    Here is mine.

    Storm as the leader.
    Beast as the brains
    Iceman to kip it light hearted
    Kitty Pride fir the the heart of the team
    Colossus for the heavy hitter
    Jean Grey to handle all the mental stuff
    And Nightcrawler because he is just so cool.
    Favorite teams. Alpha Flight, Avengers, Fantastic Four, West Coast Avengers, Justice Society of America, Legion of Superheroes.

    ^ That is definitely a good team, but you forgot Monet. As for myself, I can't really think of a team atm.

    I really cant with classic characters mashup anymore. Jean and Rogue are my two favorite characters but I cant think of a single interesting scenario involving both of them in the same team.

    Honestly, I was more inclined toward putting Mystique in Jean's place but I enjoy the Emma/Jean and Jean/Ororo dynamic too much.

    I will always miss the good old blue and gold teams before everyone from every team was considered an X-Man (which I think started with Morrison). Remember when it was a big deal when Cannonball “graduated” to the X-Men? Now you just need to be a mutant and show up that day.

    That said...

    Team One

    Cyclops
    Wolverine
    Marvel Girl
    Beast
    Colossus
    Magik

    Team Two

    Storm
    Forge
    Iceman
    Angel
    Longshot
    Blink

    Team Three

    Nightcrawler
    Shadowcat
    Prestige
    Pixie
    Justice
    Firestar

    Setting aside two things. 1) Ideas for other kinds of books for something narrowly focused on traditional ideas of teams. 2) Whether or not it's reasonable, fair to various characters, etc.

    • Polaris - leader
    • Scarlet Witch - (maybe co-leader)
    • Jean Grey OR Emma Frost
    • Dreamer (either 616 Morlock version or new one inspired by Gifted version)
    • Amelia Voght
    • Shamrock (either changed to a mutant, or just powered individual added for funsies)
    • Dani Moonstar OR Dust

    Lorna as leader cause obviously. Having Wanda as a co-leader would actually open up plenty of doors both for their stories as sisters, and for Wanda moving forward with mutants from M-Day (regardless of if you think she should or shouldn't be a mutant, M-Day should or shouldn't be addressed, etc).

    Jean would be good for delving into some hidden past with Lorna, but in all honesty I could see that not being necessary as a consistent story element. I could see Jean showing up from time to time, and using Emma instead - with whom Lorna could relate about Genosha among other things. Plus the rest of this hypothetical roster is just loaded with redheads.

    The rest are honestly just random picks. But Dreamer and Amelia would play interesting together considering Dreamer's power of telepathic dream smoke, and Amelia's of manipulating or turning (herself and others) into vapor. This is sorta repetitive with Jean/Emma though and hypothetically, Jean/Emma could be cut in favor of these two. Shamrock is one of those cases where I randomly saw her and think she could be interesting. But in the context of all this, Shamrock's power comes from being a vessel for people who died as innocent victims in war. Genosha counts. And then Dani or Dust are just cause I kinda like them conceptually.

    Nurse Annie is a character that I think could work as medical support - something I've said since ANXF. Storm is a case where after the past year, I suspect there would be complaints about power overlap or some such that wouldn't make being on the same team a good idea, so just have Storm leading a different team.
    I can also be reached on Twitter and WordPress.

    These are always hard because there are so many potential combinations. Then there are already established teams I love such as the original Gold Team, GM's New X-men team, etc.

    My dream team:

    Storm (leader)
    Jean Grey
    Emma Frost
    Bishop
    Iceman
    Wolverine
    Archangel

    This will be my dream team for today (it changes often).
