    Hot dayum, I'd never heard of this group! And I really like Dragonwing, what a cool mutant power. Thanks!

    1. 05 (plus Polaris and Havok)
    2. All-New All-Different
    3. New Mutants
    4. 80s Recruits (ex: Rogue, Betsy, Dazzler, etc.)
    5. Generation X
    6. 90s Recruits (ex: Gambit, Bishop, Cecilia Reyes, etc.)
    7. Academy X/ New X-Men

    Try to include some explanation for your choices and what role they'd play.
    The only easy choices are Cyclops and Storm, for the O5 and ANAD teams, respectively.



    Cyclops and Storm are forever X-Men IMO. I can see Kurt and Logan doing other things that better suit them, but Cyclops and Storm will die X-Men and I feel like those are good candidates to lead a team of generational representatives.

    Rogue has an eye for redemption and I think her work with the Avengers will make her the most connected to the non-mutant heroes and perhaps rub even her longtime friends the wrong way. Still a mutant hero through and through, she'll have a perspective that challenges her teammates.

    Rahne, who is like my 6th or 7th favorite New Mutant (s/o to Rictor, Dani, Berto, Doug, Illyana, and Tabitha lmao) was my choice for her generation. For one, I wanted someone with a physical mutation. I wanted someone that not only showed the turmoil of mutant life but also be a source of hope and mercy.

    My 90's recruit choice was just as difficult as my NM spot, but I went with Bishop. I just liked the idea of him working with pretty much every member of the cast and bringing out different facets of his personality. He is a doomed future living in a better one and I think that his personality could have a lot more texture working with Scott, Rahne, and...

    Monet/Penance, my Gen X choice. She's my fave so duh, but the perfect mutant whose arrogance is cursed with an untouchable exterior spices up most group dynamics. I think she'd be the most eager and capable to prove she is just as strong as her superiors, but of course has a lot of issues to work out before leading anybody.

    My Academy X person is Prodigy. He's increasingly iconic and his quest for data has shown to lead him dark and disturbing paths (corpse garden, anyone?).




    Potential Swaps: Rahne and Bishop for Rictor and Marrow.

    A man can dream. I even have some story ideas written for excalibur. Marvel should notice me.

    1. Jean (Leader/Telepath/Phoenix)
    2. Wolverine (Tank/Fighter/My book's never getting cancelled)
    3. Magik (Transport/Magic Dealing)
    4. Rogue (Flier/Powerhouse)
    5. Synch (Back Up for all the above, plus he's a walking McGuffin)
    6. Ceciila Reyes (Team Brain/Doc/Defensive use in the field)
    7. Elixer (healer)

    O5 was tough between Cyke and Jean, ANAD was never not going to be Logan for me, but I will definitely miss this crew more than anyone else. The rest basically filled needs, except Rogue, Rogue was always going to be on my team.
    You brought back Wolverine

    The CBR Community Standards a.k.a how to get along.

    Blue Team:

    Iceman
    Nightcrawler
    Moonstar
    Rogue
    Monet
    Gambit
    Prodigy

    For this group I mainly just went with my favourites of the various categories (although that was particularly hard with option 4, since the 80s recruits include several of my favourite X-Men). I think I end up with a good mix though. With Kurt, Dani and Rogue I have several qualified leaders. I've got a telepath and flying brick in M (two flying bricks depending on what power set Rogue's got). Iceman gives me an Omega-level heavy hitter. Kurt, Gambit and Moonstar give me several skilled fighters for armed and unarmed combat. And Prodigy can provide almost any other skill set needed.

    Gold Team:
    Beast
    Storm
    Karma
    Dazzler
    White Queen
    Kwannon
    Greymalkin

    I did a 2nd team mainly because I wanted to make sure Dazzler was included! lol. I've got one of the X-Men's best leaders in Storm, a couple of great telepaths, and a science expert in Beast. Karma is underused and deserves to be here. Dazzler gives us a lot of fire power, as does Storm. I originally had Anole for my #7 choice but I realized I was lacking some muscle for the group, so I swapped him for Greymalkin and his super-strength (and Beast and diamond-form Emma can back him up in that area).

    This team is so rad. I'm so envious of folks that can photoshop these sick images together. Also, amazing choices on the images.
    I will admit that my reflex was "Wtf?" when I saw Rahne in the mix but the reasoning you provided is lovely and thus sold on the idea. Also she has a lot of humorous interplay potential with Monet from their time together on X-Factor.
    And I love to see Prodigy on anyone's team.

    I think if i was creating an Excalibur team based soley on magic and potential this would be the team if it was limited to mutants or once mutants. I just feel give all of their history in the MU and history untapped it could be a wild team to follow.

    Aw thank you! I totally stole the format from the X-Men Election! <3

    Yeah I'm still weirded out that I chose Rahne, but it just felt right lololol
