    Dammit, you know I’m not that interested in the book when I start quibbling over semantics.

    That was my thinking. You gotta start somewhere.

    Another new generation of mutants?!? God Marvel!

    I'm not liking NC on that cover. He's too skinny. And that flat little boy haircut isn't helping. I'm really not a fan of Silva anyway so I'm really glad Bernard Chang is doing the interiors. I like his art and bought that New Mutants mini that he did way back when, when it first came out and it helps in my decision to possibly pick up these books but it ultimately depends on how the plot goes. The covers on the whole are a bit underwhelming but the last one is an improvement.

    Me too. I'm not interested yet another batch of new teen heroes and they should use the ones they already have. New Mutants, Gen X, New/Young X-Men, The Five Lights, The JGS kids, Trinary and Honey Badger. There is even Marrow and Moorisons Beak and Angel when you think about in Limbo too. I actually posted in another thread about a week ago how it would be interesting it would be if a group of humans would be envious of the X-Men for having powers to stop bullies and corrupt authorities and having a community to belong to the school/team/Krakoa. I may pick it up if they are mutants. But its a very big if. It depends on how they are used. I don't really want another team just to languish.

    That "peach" Nightcrawler that was pointed out a few pages back with an "ew..." Its ironic since Kurts hands was based off of someone Cockrum went to school with. You know when you think about it Toad was treated so terribly by Magneto because he was weak and not very powerful and "ugly." His abilities were based just on a physical mutation. He didn't have the benefit of an added power.

    Wish we’d’ve seen this cover first but I get the whole transition thing they wanted to do with the two Silva covers. I’m really loving the designs of each cast member and I hope they at least get to have their setting placed in the Akademos Habitat so we could get some guest star appearances from other X-generations.

    I'm hoping for this as well.
    We are MUTANT...One people. One tribe. One family...Krakoa, FOREVER!!!

    I'm iffy on the sidekick angle but I need to know more first. I'm not big on them just having the look and powers of existing characters. I usually like the variety the mutant concept brings than the other franchises.

    probably because we were all hoping they would keep to their word of not creating new characthers, especialy 5 more to add to the saturated and ignored x-teens, but oh well

    i hear you. im hoping new mutants has a more revolving cast than at first glance

    in terms of this book though i dont wanna be quick to call "flop". the creative team seems pretty mint and considering all the clues weve been given suggesting this is a chimera book it could end up exploring some fascinating new territory. plus its getting everyone so riled already....consider my curiosity piqued

    they need their own book, straight and simple, with a reason to team up and a mission to make them relevant to krakoa, what we absolutly did not need was gen z cosplayers that probably do tiktok covers of their heroes

    are you kidding the tik toks would be a dream. lol.
    if its any consolation, im 99.9% sure the cosplay theories are wrong. that figure is definitely inflated by wishful thinking. but still.

    my wishfull thinking is this book is a ruse and its just a new x-men relaunch, and the twerps on the cover are just the first villains of the ongoing, the x-pretenders

    Speaking of which, I’d be more excited if we don’t have both “Strange Academy” with Magik, and “New Warriors” with Firestar training a new generation of heroes as well. I understand “Champions” may be doing the same. That’s far too many students at the same time. Makes me wonder if their goal is some rival “power school” story That can be used for the MCU.
    Woooo looking forward to Strange Academy!

    I don't think I've ever seen a comic creator go out of their way to rag on something another creator is doing, least of all two people working in the same company on tied-in projects. It would be career suicide.

I wish she had made some characters with original powers at least they'd have the slimmest chance of sticking around. I just don't think sidekick legacy characters work in a team concept like the X-men, they'll never get the opportunity to be handed the mantle, and if/when they do you know the fans of the originals will be getting their pitchforks ready.
    The X-men have largely stayed away from solo heroics for a while now, with Wolverine being the big exception. Why do Cyclops, Jean and Nightcrawler need sidekicks? Especially since there are multiple classes of X kids that they have already mentored. And copying the powers of the A listers is a fast way to make themselves less interesting. Having a new, interesting power is how these B and C listers stick around.
