Yeah, Namor wasn't a mutant until late in the game, BC. And no one in the MU really classifies him as such. And he certainly doesn't care to. I just don't like him. And Northstar has the superiority complex of Namor without the creepy sex offender vibe.

Gomurr, I've always thought Frenzy had one of the best character arcs in a long time for the X-Men, and she's just fallen by the wayside. Criminal.

I like Northstar too. But I thought it was kinda funny to bring the two up because while yes Namor was “officially” designated a mutant in the 90s, he was originally thought of one back in the first FF annual. So his mutantness is strsnge. And then you have Northstar who was originally going to be an actul elf but that was (thankfully) canned. So it humored me that they share a slightly twisty relationship with mutantness and they were both being brought up.

I just realized how much I’d love to see Northstar and Namor on the same team. Seriously, I could see Namor as bi-sexual and having huge sexual tension and flirtation between the two of them.

Ah, gotcha. I'm glad Northstar and Aurora aren't elves either. Although that would tie him to Thor I guess? I still think Namor is a creep and that's my real problem with him.

Yeah, Jean-Paul should be in a book. Hopefully, he's one of the other two members.

Maybe she's like Triplicate Girl from the Legion of Superheroes?

Either that or she's some kind of cyberpath.
Boom. Yeah, it's been confirmed that Trinary is a technopath.

AKA - they'll spend some time building the team, which should help explain some of the randomness of the characters.

I just hope they don't spend the whole first arc assembling their crew. That's a narrative trope I'm way tired of. Especially when these crews change every year or so; we spend almost half the run in assembly mode like we're not about to get a whole new set-up soon.

Well Guggs and Bunn skipped that process, so you might not have to do it. Then again Pak took FOREVER...

So Gambit is confirmed. Didn't they say two familiar faces? I wonder if the second is her.

So CBR have published a preview for this...
Spoiler: show
-The X-Men save a girl called Heather who is a mutant
-Nightcrawler has some cute dialogue
-They live under the sea in a place called *sigh* Searebro. I wish I was joking. Honey badger has named a shark “Harold”
-The art is fucking awful

On the one hand, I hate the HQ name, on the other hand at least it's trying harder than the Avengers and *ahem* Hydrobase.
Spoiler: show
I have to say, I don't like the idea of another psychic/technology induced wave of hatred and prejudice that seems to be hinted at here. I'd be more interested if the team had to deal with people hating mutants of their own accord.
