Sam and Berto...only because there’s that weird psychic bond aspect of Dani and Rahne that always has puts a question in my mind.

Spinoff: which friendship could blossom into an even better friendship- Jubilee and Rictor in Excalibur OR Doug and Mondo in New Mutants?

Doug and Mondo - already there is a dynamic there, however I just don’t feel anything between Jubilee and Rictor

Who is the X-Men’s best human ally? Kavita Rao, Juggernaut, Captain Marvel, Lomgshot or other...?

Longshot...he’s served with them the longest and really held it down for the X-Men.

You’re partner is a mutant and you’re a human, which team do you want them to join: Excalibur or the Marauders?

I'm not sure either have that chemistry down yet, but gimme Jubilee and Rictor. Chamber seems to aloof to have a bestie.


I was too slow!!

Best human ally obviously WAS Moira, but now it's probably Val Cooper.


TOO SLOW AGAIN!! STOP IT YOU GUYS! :lol:

Excalibur!

Yes @Gremlin, Space Jam was about basketball. :)

Next question. If you could reboot one character, who would it be and what would you change?

Beast. The past 15 years hasn’t really been kind to him and I would dial him right back to his Ape form. I appreciated the cat form but the progression from thats as pointless and most artists can’t really get a good grip on it. Ape Beast was a simple concept. Also, his abuse of science has gotten out of hand. The upbeat Beast from the early days was better.

Which twins would you want on your side? North Star/Aurora or Quicksilver/Scarlet Witch?

Northstar & Aurora, because depending on her mental state, you might actually have three or even more people on your side, and not just two. Additionally Scarlet Witch is too damn powerful. I'd rather deal with a psychotic Jeanne-Marie than a deranged Wanda. And comparing the two arrogant speedsters, Northstar is able to fly and has been more stable over the years than Pietro.

Which two members of the New Mutants and the Hellions should have permanently switched teams?

The answer is Mutant Massacre but I'm not sure some of these are would you rathers Lol

You are a depowered mutant who had bird wings. Would you rather die in the Crucible or not?

Hmmmm...nah, I’ll stay a normie. Maybe some mutagenic accident in New York will repower me.

Okay...would you rather re-read: Mutant Massacre or the Fall of the Mutants?

Fall of the Mutants-- You get great Silvestri and Simonson art, dramatic turning points for all three books involved, Archangel... And if you add in the lead-up issues in between The Massacre and Fall, Uncanny was really firing on all cylinders at the time.

Would you rather the X-Men moved back to San Francisco or returned to Maynards Plains (the Outback)?

SF...I loved that era. It was too short. I just think SF is visually also a great city.

Rather read Fall of the Mutants or X-Tinction Agenda?

Fall of the Mutants. The multi-part crossovers can just be a little much sometimes.

Which of Storm's partners was the better match and why? Forge, Wolverine or Black Panther?

I’ll go with Wolverine.

I feel like Storm and Forge have diverged in too many fundamental ways over the years.

And while BP’s relationship started out as a hype device, subsequent writers have really made it a thoughtful and pretty equal relationship. There’s a regality to them as a couple that I did end up liking...

But there’s something very comforting about Logan and Storm together. At their best, they are just so complementary and I do think their teamups are just the best.

Rather read Fall of the Mutants or Muir Island Saga?
Morrison Era 2001-2005, Decimation Era from 2005-2012, Bendis Era 2012-2016, M-Pox era 2016-2017, and Resurrxion 2017-2019, Hickman Era 2019-?

Muir Island Saga - because I never understood why three separate storylines needed to have the same title.

Who is more in need of a new, fitting codename (and which one would you suggest) ? Jean Grey, Kate Pryde or Rachel Summers ?

Rachel Summers...now what it should be is hard because telepathy and telekinesis are so generic and all them “psy” names either are used or sound kinda dumb. Maybe Marvelous? A sorta kinda graduation of Marvel Girl lol

Kate Pryde sounds cool...

Jean Grey also sounds like a secret agent name and she’s a boss and doesn’t need a codename.

Oh...(by now everyone sees my pattern): Rather read Muir Island Saga or X-Cutioner’s Song?

Muir Island Saga. Only because I've never actually read it before, and I really do enjoy X-Cutioner's Song. Likewise, I've never read the non X-Factor issues of Fall of the Mutants either. I do actually want to read Muir Island, whereas I'm not sure the rest of Fall of the Mutants is actually that good from all the summaries I have read and developments that happened from it.

Would you rather go for a 'few drinks' with Banshee or Brian Braddock?

Banshee...
Banshee genuinely always seems like a fun guy. Even TAS version just felt like the kind of guy I’d like to hang with. Brain just feels like not my kind of British lol...

Okay which would you rather re-read: Muir Island Saga vs Fatal Attractions
Morrison Era 2001-2005, Decimation Era from 2005-2012, Bendis Era 2012-2016, M-Pox era 2016-2017, and Resurrxion 2017-2019, Hickman Era 2019-?

Still Muir Island Saga, only because I've again read Fatal Attractions, and still want to get through MIS at some point!

You're a mutant expecting your first born, and you've been told they will inherit your X-Gene, would you rather they inherit a version of your power-set, or have a completely different power-set instead?

Inherit, or at least a variation thereof. Best case scenario you’ll have a common power like strength or telekinesis, but if your power is more unique or high-levelled, you’re going to want them to have a similar or the same power as you so that you can help them learn to use it and you’ll know the stumbling blocks that you faced when learning to use your power.

More of a three way question here: if you were a mutant, would you be a hero, a villain, or one of those ones who just kind of flip-flops between the two depending on what you feel is more morally aligned to your beliefs?

Definitely the latter. I could never be a true hero or villain. If I have telepathy or telekinesis I would totally abuse the power for my own gain. I’ve actively thought about it a lot.

Which former X-couple do you wish were still together?

Definitely Quasar, much more of a team player than Surfer.

Who would you rather have lead a street based team - Daredevil or Luke Cage?
