    Love it. Very much a 'excuse me, what did you say?' sort of team. Would love to see them in action. I would tweak it ever so slightly:

    Storm, Exodus, Meggan, Namor, Scarlet Witch, Gateway(and lean into his Dreamtime powers/magic/omniscence, in addition to his teleporting through time and space; he's a super-powerhouse), and Monet I guess, even if she's a little redundant powerwise, we can follow up on that Gateway connection with the twins/Penance/Emplate. Alternate pick is Franklin, Synch, or Elixir.
    Let the flames destroy all but that which is pure and true!

    12. No one introduced before the end of the Clinton Administration (2001)
    I'm pushing that cut off with Morrison characters, but oh well.

    1. Shola Inkosi 4, 5, 10
    2. Worst X-Man Ever 3, 7
    3. Hope Summers 2 (bodyslide), 6, 14 (remember when she was asking people to borrow a brush)
    4. Rain Boy 11
    5. Jumbo Carnation!! <3 9
    6. Glitter (Shi'Ar) 4 (spaceship), 6, 10, 14
    7. Slick 1, 5

    3 Worst X-Man with Slick. Slick convinces him via his minor telepathy and major peer pressure skill to run into the fray and explode.

    This... is actually pretty strong. 3 Female, 4 Male. 2 black males, 1 asian female, 1 ancient Egyptian. A female Wolverine, a male Phoenix. No clear leader but shared between Prodigy, Surge, and Wolverine. A fun-loving teleporter with a European accent. A genius that's the weak spot of the roster. An ingenue who's male... and a subversion of a classic villain. And if we go with Fokken's suggestion of Prodigy/Quentin Quire, a romantic couple.

    I just think Gentle is functionally the same as soft-spoken Colossus, Pixie's whole teleportation "spell" deal is weird. I don't really understand Evan's powers or potential. I'm a big fan of Prodigy but I've never understood the appeal of Surge... And I hate Quentin Quire.

    Surge (Japan) and Pixie (Wales) also count as 10.

    And this is why I wish people would play more attention to the younger generations when building lineups. Newer characters are naturally more diverse because of the different times in which they were introduced, but you also have a lot more subversion or playing with archetypes that makes for some FAR more interesting dynamics than putting the same 5-7 characters from the 80s and 90s together.
    Still hoping for that Helix Reunion...

    Glad you approve :-)

    I love roster games, but I look at these teams of favorites and I just want to turn the page. You NEED some chemistry and so many of the wilder groups on the 21st century either never had it, never needed it, or never got the chance to develop it.

    In the case of your challenge to get current, it was rough! I had to think about passing allegiances, like Laura and Gentle’s time on Red, Pixie’s day out, the post M-Day students. Anole/Rockslide/Dust/Prodigy/Cuckoos are such a crutch. I wasn’t able to really add any of them until David’s bi status got him a spot, and Fokken’s crackship cemented it.

    I agree, it's the reason I always add a few X-kids to my rosters.
