Also the..."Uh oh! They got Storm!" moment felt so shoe-horned in. I feel like writers frequently use a brainwashed Storm as a way of upping the ante.
I’m pretty sure that Storm’s only really beaten in terms of being brainwashed or possessed by Polaris, Wolverine and maybe Psylocke

Yep, I do think that's actually Neal Shaara on the final page. The return of Thunderbird III. Truly these are the end times.

Beak was re-powered in a single panel by Mothervine during the X-Men: Blue arc.

On the 2-page splash, though, who is that with Reyes in the top right? Is that what Rictor looks like now?

And I guess this means Beak, Rictor, Meggan, Kylun (and Madrox?) are now X-Men?

Yes, that's his look from the current Shatterstar series.

It does seem to be specifically MUTANT members of the X-Men. No Captain Britain, Longshot, Juggernaut, Ink, Prodigy, Karima, Danger, Doop, Warbird, Deathlok...

Maybe Meggan was called because of her natural ... something powers? And Kylun appeared in a Nightcrawler story not so long ago.

Excalibur foreshadowing?

They're both mutants, so it would stand to reason that they'd be called if this was an "all hands on deck" situation. I'd love for it to also mean an Excalibur revival. There's so much fun to be had across the pond.
Spoiler: show
Future solicits show Meggan as Kurt's love interest in AoXM, so maybe Kylun is also going to show up.

I was really wondering if that was Neal Shaara. I can't believe it.

Also, I love that Monet got the call and had better things to be doing.

So we can assume that all the Mutant Ninja X-Men not in the splash page are dead, techno-modded, not on earth, or in an other dimension?

I am still torn between Hellion and Neal. The costume looks very X-Treme X-Men to me, but the gauntlets look bigger than the ones Neal wore.

I looked at that roll call page with Jean. Who is the electric character between Match and..?

That Trinary and Gentle thing is real now? To much stuff happening off-panel.

Great to see Frenzy again, but the Cuckoos lost their individualism.

I mean it's a splash page...it's very possible that there are characters included who are not visible. Like Insipid said, some of the folks who Jean contacted (like a Monet) might didn't actually show up (it does look like most of them are in action somewhere)...or it's possible they're there and just not visible. Given the artist, I don't know if they could have really put every single person on the page. They're no Finch LOL

FWIW: What Trinary and Gentle thing happened off-panel? They're just kinda in action-y poses.

Let’s hope Finch gets a major X job soon...

And Beast said „you have to defeat all the X-Men“.
Now, as a paying customer, I expect to see ALL when ALL is being advertised. I am very picky. You know that.

In RED, Trinary got the hots for Gentle in one of the last issues.

Maybe Jean couldn’t reach them because of their unique ...ahm,, brainwaves or whatever telepathic protection writers gave them. Gambits kinetic energy and Rogue‘s multiple minds have been explained to be some kind of protection.

They're in space? I mean wasn't that talked about very early on in the book?

@JazzK- But they're in an action-y pose...not dressed up on a date or making out...the fact they're included together doesn't mean they're dating. It just means that they were last seen on the same squad, so the artist put them together. I mean I get the dig you're trying to make it but it just seems like a reach based on just one insert panel but maybe idk...
