Quarantine Games...X-Men Edition

Post by Blackcyclops » 22 Mar 2020, 15:59

Okay so while alot of us are stuck in their homes (I still have to work), I thought I’d open this thread to try and do something fun and creative. Inspired partially by the 31 Days of Comics thread (fyi got something else planned for that too), this thread will house just things to take our minds off of real life for a little bit...I’ll be the game master but if you have any idea share’em along the way.


The first game is “Would you rather”-X-Men Edition (let’s try and keep it at least PG-13 everybody)...

I’ll start:
Would you rather be stuck in quarantine with Glob Herman or Quentin Quire?

And then the next person posits their own hypothetical...and it just keeps going...until we move on to the next game.

Glob Herman

I don't think I've hated a student character more than I hate Quire. Glob is only slightly ahead of him in likability and I can at least close my eyes to ignore Glob. Quire wouldn't ever shut up.

Glob too. Quire is insufferable. At least Glob is chill and we can play paraffin games. As long as we don't burn the house down.

If you had to listen to one singer for the next month, would it be Dazzler or Lila Cheney?

Dazzler. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a rock-music kid at heart, but Dazzler through her aesthetics alone seems to have transitioned genres through her career, and therefore probably has a more varied back catalogue. Lila’s discography probably gets rather stale around album number 3.

Would you rather go on a road trip with Iceman or Beast?

Even though I liked the song in the Lila Cheney/New Mutants Video much better than the one in the Dazzler fan Video, I too would always listen to Dazzler over Lila. While I don't mind the occasional rock balad, disco and soul music tfrom the 70ies and 80ies is my thing.

That road trip… definitely Iceman. A road trip takes you to new surroundings every day, to explore and discover things and mayvbe also find/restore a piece of yourself. Beast would provide all the info and answers before you have even begun to see the questions, and I also wouldn't want to have to explain being in the presence of a blue-furred cat/ape person every time we hit a new town. Bobby on the other hand is laid back, fun to be around, but also wouldn't mind - occasionally- , for each of us to spend a few hours by themselves. (if you point him at some cute guys to look at).

Would you rather go to Apocalypse or to Mr. Sinsiter in order to get your powers restored ?

Ooooh that’s a tough one.

On one hand, Apocalypse wouldn’t just restore your powers, but would probably increase your overall power levels... but at what cost? Granted his mind control isn’t absolute and has been shaken by at least five X-Men by my count... (Polaris, Archangel, Wolverine, Gambit, Sunfire), but there’s absolutely no regard for the person in question’s desire.

Sinister... I mean I’d actually probably trust him more. Again, there’s be an ulterior motive, and he’d probably say that you owe him a favour somewhere along the lines... but I can see him as more likely to do it for the “joy of science” than for “well let’s see what we can do to make you more powerful or useful to me”.

Sinister, is my pick, ultimately.

Would you rather have been a member of The New Mutants or Generation X?

Okay...this is hard.

On one hand, as a part of the NM generation I’m more likely to get to have a separate team to operate with. I even might get to operate with another hero team if my homies in the NM aren’t together.


But the GenX generation is categorically cooler. Jubilee? Cool. Chamber? Flipping cool...M? RIDICULOUSLY COOL! I mean they just got style and swag that I can relate to. Now you’re more likely tk be sidelined with them though...

I’ll take Generation X.

If you had to have a mentor as a young mutant, who would you choose Cable (old Cable) or Wolverine?

Old Cable. Wolverine is probably slightly more responsible but Cable will make you feel more mature, and you're more likely to get to borrow his straps and pouches.

You're a decades old mutant with a healing factor and an adamantium laced skeleton. Which insufferable teen girl do you take under your hairy wings, Kitty or Jubes?

Jubilee, because Kitty is actually Satan

EDIT: okay let’s be more objective...

I always felt like Jubilee and Wolverine’s relationship grew with her. I certainly feel like him trusting her with Laura’s education, even when she was a vampire, was something he wouldn’t have done with Kitty. I feel like they’re closer and that he’s probably more proud of what Jubilee’s made of the cards she’s been dealt. Not to say he isn’t proud of Kitty, but Kitty didn’t just have him, she had a wealth of others around her like Storm, Colossus and Kurt. Jubilee didn’t just rescue him on her own, but she also travelled with him for a good few months, cropped up in his solo series fairly regularly, tried her hardest to help him save Mariko, even as a newbie managed to earn his and Psylocke’s respect, stopped her from killing her parents killers... yeah, Jubilee. Every time.

You’re a young telepath on Krakoa, and you have to choose a mentor/instructor.

Do you opt for Emma Frost or Jean Grey?

Kitty is, like her or hate her, the personal sidekick for someone with that powerset because it’s more “physical”. I think Jubilee should be with another energy projector.

You have to be a roommate with 2 mutants who do you choose: Anole/Rockslide or Broo/Oya?

Broo and Oya. Broo would help you with homework and Oya could always maintain the perfect temperature for your room.

If you could retcon one character into being a mutant and having them join the X-Men, would it be:

Spider-Man or Hulk?

Spider-Man HANDS down!

If one you could pair Cyclops with 1 non-mutant Superhero who would you pick:
Misty Knight or Spectrum/Monica Rambeau?

Misty Knight, just to see how Colleen Wing (Scott's ex and Misty's best friend) and Jean Grey (Scott's ex-wife and Misty's former roomie) would react to that pairing.

A fourth Color is being added to the Hellfire Club. Would you rather have Polaris as the Green Queen or Nightcrawler as the Blue Bishop?

Nightcrawler as Blue Bishop.

I feel like Lorna’s been made, in recent years, to more closely resemble her father— it’s feeling a lot like since Wanda and Pietro aren’t his children anymore, that writers and editorial are making more of an effort to make her the clear heir of Magneto, and that would be a totally repeated story beat. I would far rather see Kurt, normally the most morally unflinching X-Man, take a role to see what happens to him.

In a world where Vulcan doesn’t exist, would you rather the third Summers brother be: Adam-X or Gambit

Gambit.

I loved the x-men the end story Claremont wrote and I believed Claremont’s explanation for Remy being a summers.Adam-X was never my cup of tea.

Which x-men island would you rather live on- Utopia or Krakoa?

Utopia. I think Krakoa is in the verge of a sociological horror story.

You are invited to join an X-team, would you rather wear a team uniform or go for an individual look?

Difficult, as it depends on what the other members of the team want. If everyone wears exactly the same uniform, an individual look makes you stick out. In a group discussion about it, I would probably would argue toowards individual or rather individualized looks, simply because everyone has different tastes and not everyone can pull off the same colors or styles. So I'd go with a team theme, but indivial looks. (What Liefeld did towards the end of New Mutants)

If you could spend a day with one X-Men creator and talk about everything you wanted, would you pick Hickman or Claremont ?

Hickman.

If you had to gather together a surprise “congratulations on being awesome” party for a team of villains who would you choose: The Upstarts or the Nasty Boys?

Nasty Boys. I grew up in the TAS, and they were the best henchmen type group on the show. Plus their name reminds me of Brian Knobbs and Jerry Sags*

*and yes, I remembered their name without even needing to Google it.

You're forming a mutant team - would you accept government sponsorship or would you take private sector sponsorship instead?

Government sanctioned...

So keeping with that idea, you are a mutant...

Would you rather be a mutant soldier for Russia or Department K?

Russia. They’re slightly more hopeless at tracking down defecting agents (Black Widow, etc), and also, vodka.

Would you rather be a mutant who joined the avengers, or a non-mutant who joined the X-Men?

Let me see:

Sunspot, Beast, Cannonball, Rogue, Havok, Wolverine

VS

Longshot, Carol Danvers, Tom and Sharon, Juggernaut, Kid Gladiator...

I’m going with being a mutant on the Avengers.

You’re a mutant and you’re forced sent to a possible future, which do you choose:
Bishop’s future or Cable’s future?

Oh no contest, Bishop’s. It’s mildly better. Or at least not in a constant state of war like Cable’s is.

Would you rather live in the Age of Apocalypse or Days of Future Past?
