Dawn of X

Found some news out about the X-Men, Avengers, Batman or even? The monthly previews have been released ? Or perhaps there's a rumour you've heard, then post it here for the world to see.

I’ll be in the minority, I love Rogue’s current costume in her currently ending book with Gambit. Besides if Jubes can get a new take on a classic, then so can Rogue instead of just literally redoing the 90s costume and hair. I do think that Mahmud Asrar’s art doesn’t do anyone any justice on the cover, which is odd because he’s usually pretty good

I'm happy that Chamber is alive.

Who's to say Kitty picked Emma. I am looking at three failed X-Men leaders, a villain and a traitor. Maybe they've been cast out ? :twisted: (but what's Bobby doing there, other than his powers being pretty useful around an ocean)

I’m no judge...I’m not specific about what kind of relationship Iceman has. I just like the idea of their being a same-sex will-they-wont-love-drama in the x-books on a regular basis. They can date or be FWB, I’m fine either way lol

Im somehow happy and somehow puzzled with some choices.

While X-Men having a heavy Summers roster was actually something I thought of when we knew Jean was coming back now I dont see it as fitting and correct.
It is true that the team is filled with powerhouses following the Extintion team trend BUT the Extintion team actually had a really diverse team while here we have Jean, Jean, Jean, the Summers clan and Wolvie, it reminded me of the team assembled immediately before the Twelve saga.
X-men should benefit from the awesome roster they have.
Cyclops, Jean and Wolverine are (together with Storm) mainstays and iconic and I would keep them.
Havok is a great choice, but the rest of the team...
Rachel should have gone to other team (my choice would be X-Force). Vulcan and Corsair... im still figuring out if its just a tease or they are actually joining the X-men in any capacity, but I just dont think they are the natural choice for nothing but an arc as guests.
Polaris, Warpath, Firestar, Forge, Banshee and Dazzler together with Havok, Cyclops, Jean and Wolverine... that is a terrific team for ANYTHING.

Marauders as concept... Im still trying to understand why they would move around the world in ANY boat. Maybe I didnt get the info correctly.
However the roster is awesome and there is little I would add or change.

New Mutants... Im blissful. Im hoping their missing member now they are heading to the space is our fantastic Cannonball. Love it!

Excalibur. While the team doesnt look wrong initially and we still have to wait and see what happens in Powers of X and House of X It feels weird that Betsy is dropping her codename to become something that caused her so much pain and loss in her life.
It would be much better, imho, if instead of Excalibur the title was Exiles and we had this same roster minus Apocalypse plus Shatterstar, AoA Blink and Exiles Morph. I would die to read that.
Anyway, Im curious and Im looking forward to see what they want to tell us.

X-Force seems wrong in many ways. We see Wolverine, Kid Cable and Jean repeated in another team which is a missed opportunity to use other characters.
If they replace Jean with Rachel, Wolverine with X23 and Cable with adult Cable... then remove Black Tom and QQ and give us Boom Boom, Syrin, Deadpool, Archangel and Kwannon and we would have a team with raw power, stealth and black ops.
Not sure the roster they have chosen fits any of the criteria they wanted to establish.

Fallen Angels... this is probably the title I liked the least. But I would have liked this book more about Quentin Quire, X-23, Hellion and some other New X-men guys fallen from grace.

Anyway, Im totally sure they will bring more books soon after this wave and many other mutants will come there, and some of them will replace part of the actual cast they have gone for now.

It seems more likely to me that since the solicit says Emma is funding this operation, that she chose Kitty. That tracks with their previous relationship. Emma finds Kitty annoying but ultimately respects her competence and decision-making (which is completely ridiculous as Kitty Pride is a goddamned twit on her best day).

Just realised that Magma is missing out that New Mutant lineup. Like, every other New Mutant is setting off to find Cannonball and they add Chamber and MONDO to the mix...but not Magma. If that ain't a big F-U to her I don't know what is. It's like all your friends going to a party and forgetting to invite you.

The lack of X-kids is quite blatant and I almost wonder if it's done on purpose. Maybe wave 2 will have a title for them. If not then it's a pretty s***y move by the editors who made a concerted effort during the first part of the Uncanny run to bring the likes of Rockslide, Armor, Pixie and Anole into the mix more.
Everybody is entitled you their opinion...but yours is wrong.

The X-Men will have a rotating cast so some of them being represented in other books is fine. I've wanted a huge Summers-Grey family reunion story forever.

Also, I may be in the minority but I actually really like the idea of the Fallen Angels book. I love Psylocke and I understand they were never going to escape her racebending controversy until they changed her back, but I loved her aesthetic and was lamenting the loss of such a high profile asian character even if it was in body only. Giving Kwannon her own book is risky but it shows a commitment to making Kwannon an important character in her own right. Sticking X-23 on the book with her will definitively help the book's sales.

Hey if I ranked my anticipation based solely on covers and solicits (plus talent) it goes:

X-Men
Fallen Angels
X-Force
Excalibur
Marauders
New Mutants

I like the idea of those three together. Can really only guess that everyone who hates Kable on a roster would have hated old Cable on a roster too...so I’m used to my faves being disliked on this board lol

Honestly they all look great. Just really want a kids book and Dazz and Northstar somewhere, but I can wait.

And yeah, Emma is on the Marauders team because she's funding it. I don't know why that doesn't make sense? And who was it that doesn't like Marcus To, the artist for Excalibur? He's really good at traditional type hero stuff. I don't want Rogue back in this costume either, so I hope that's just a cover thing. Her Green/White is always my fave, esp since it got that Coipel redux. I don't particularly like Otherworld type stories but I trust Tini and I love Rogue, Jubes, and Rictor, so I'm excited for it a lot. But I'll be honest, Marauders gets me really excited because the premise is weird and the roster is fantastic (mostly because EMMA BACK WITH THE X-MEN!).

Jean needs to be OUT of those duds and fast tho. The more you guys talk about it, the more interested I am becoming in Fallen Angels. I don't know diddly about Kwannon because that's the era of X-Men I haven't really read (I tried and just...couldn't get through it). But maybe I can give her a chance.

I think UrbanExplorer is talking about the cover to Excalibur, that was done by Asrar and not To. The cover is alil rough imo too...not his best work.

I was the one confused about the Emma stuff but that was my dumb move of forgetting that portion of the solicit.

I can tolerate Rogue back in her old costume, even if I do love the new green/white duds but I can’t find any way to like the Marvel Girl costume or the old Psylocke costume. The butt-floss era is over.

I was the one with Marcus To.

I looked for some interior art and recognized him from Blue and Nextgen. Not my thing.

... I actually don't hate that to be honest.

It sounds like the first plot of New Mutants is to bring him home though so maybe things will work out.

The sever lack of Nightcrawler in any of these books, his weird red clone in the teaser images, and the fact that he got his own book in the Age of X-Man or whatever it was called has me nervous...

And I’m a huge fan of Warren as well but there’s just so much more “evidence” against Kurt.

Hickman said don’t worry, Kurt will be around. He’ll be like an older statesmen...so I say hold out hope.

But I could tell that even though fans wanted info, Hickman really wanted fans to just enjoy (or not) HoX/PoX and not think too much about what comes next. His comments about it, really made kinda regret I was there to see the new info already. I prolly will avoid any solicits or spoilers about x-books after this.

I absolutely adore To's work so I'm looking forward to seeing him on Excalibur.

I kinda want to see Kurt get another shot at leading the team down the line, I think he's more prepared for it now than he has been in the past.

Rogue is my fave, and while I'm thrilled that she'll be appearing in a team book again, when was the last time she was on the "main" X-team? During Utopia when she was starring in Legacy?
