    Default New Mutants Appreciation 2020

    A new thread for the B-class of the Xavier Institute. 2019 was a very controversial year for our New Mutants, but now we can emphatically say that the new normal of Krakoa has proven positive for these merry mutants!

    Where are They?

    • Mirage: Krakoa/New Mutants
    • Magik: Krakoa/New Mutants
    • Karma: Krakoa/New Mutants
    • Sunspot: Shi'ar Space/New Mutants
    • Cannonball: Shi'ar Space/New Mutants
    • Wolfsbane: Krakoa/New Mutants
    • Douglock: Krakoa/New Mutants
    • Magma: Krakoa/New Mutants
    • Boom-Boom: Krakoa/New Mutants
    • Rictor: Krakoa/Excalibur
    • Strong Guy: Krakoa
    • Blink: Krakoa
    • Rusty: KIA
    • Skids: MIA

    The New Generation Claims the Dawn!

    Like I've said in the first post, the New Mutants had it rough this past year. The most controversial death with Wolfsbane mirroring a trans panic murder certainly didn't help. Sunspot, Warlock, and Magik also fell during the tragic Rosenberg run on Uncanny X-Men. Mirage got her powers back via Transmode Virus, Karma left the X-Men after feeling bad for the events of Dead Souls, Magma and Rictor got stuck in the Age of X-Man, while Cannonball & Boom-Boom reunited under Domino's X-Force to track down Kid Cable.

    But Xavier's changed all the rules now. Everyone is together again on Krakoa, alive and thriving, except Cannonball who lives in Shi'ar space with his wife and kid. The New Mutants reunite, alongside Gen X alumni Chamber and Mondo, to retrieve their friend to share this new age of mutant revolution. The New Mutants are currently living on the Akademos Habitat in the ALPHA House.



    As far as current titles in the Dawn of X that feature the New Mutants:


    New Mutants
    (W) Jonathan Hickman/Ed Brisson
    (C/A) Rod Reis, Flaviano

    ~Featuring: Mirage, Magik, Sunspot, Karma, Wolfsbane, Douglock, Boom-Boom~


    Excalibur
    (W) Tini Howard
    (A) Marcus To
    (C) Mahmud Asrar

    ~Featuring: Rictor~

    I'm here for my graduating class.

    Can't wait to see what's in store this year.

    New Mutants Forever, baby!!! Rod is killing it he's so talented!!

    Man oh Man, I'm going to C2E2 in Chicago this year and I had my heart set on getting a commission from Rod Reis and I knew I'd have to spend a lot but I didn't think he'd be asking $400 for a full color figure.

    Sigh.

    I still love his work but that's a mega let down.

    Bill Sienkiewicz and Rod Reis are to New Mutants what Bachalo and Dodson are to Generation X & Young and Medina and Brooks are to New X-Men.

    Berto and Dani are my favorites. Magik is just too much of a badass to ignore. But visually, no one beats Art Adams's Magma. He actually made her look like lava flowed all over her.

    Yes, I know this was when she was turned into a fairy, but she looks sooooo good!!!

    I liked the character when he was in X-Factor but he and Skids never fit in with the NM. They were removed almost immediately after they joined so they never got a chance to get integrated into the group like Rictor and Boom Boom did. Going back to old issues, he was kinda bland and served the role of standard white boy in the most generic way. He was a poor man's Cannonball with none of the charm. I feel like he should be brought back and given a chance to get some actual character development

    My Holy Trinity is Magik - Warlock - Sunspot
    It used to be just Illyana and Lock but Hickman/Spencer/Ewing did wonders with Roberto.

    My hopes for 2020:
    Warlock coming back as Warlock.
    Magma showing she is not just another flame throwing mutant.
    At least one new friendship for Magik. And bringing back Sapna would be nice.
    Some bold plans* from Roberto.

    * translator note: plan means "keikaku"
    Bringing back the old, killing the young: that's the Marvel way

    Yeah, Rusty and Skids were the baby versions of Scott and Jean in X-Factor, and never meshed with the core NM/X-Forcers in the grand scheme of things. I never really liked either of them. Boring powers and characterizations. But I never really liked most of Simonson's work(other than her X-Terminators mini, where Taki was a boss during Inferno).
    Let the flames destroy all but that which is pure and true!
