I'm probably going to buy this because of Brian Wood.

Are Armor or Pixie dead or spoken for?


neither are.. but we also don't know if this is the final roster. and Wood has written both Armor and Pixie so it wouldn't surprise me if they appear in the book some how..

Does anyone remember that cancelled X-Women game from the 90s which pretty much had the concept of focusing on the female members of the team strictly? This book just reminded me of it for some reason.

If my budget opens up (which is highly unlikely), I may give this a go. Of course, that'd depend on if each issue isn't 3-5 minutes worth of content per issue (see Brian Wood's first X-Men arc)

yep i'm all for more x-books.. as long as each book has a distinct reason for being i have no problem with there being more books


I'm kind of split on this.

I mean, if they all turn out to be good comics, then I think it's great. Who doesn't want more good comics? But I find that rarely turns out to be the case. I find that when Marvel or DC really starts stretching a franchise thin, it shows. You usually end up with one or two books that carry a concept forward and does interesting things and then end up with the other books being sort of boring inconsequential stuff.

I like a lot of what I've read by Brian Wood over the years but in such a big franchise, especially with Brian Michael Bendis molding the direction, I'm skeptical that Wood will have much leeway to really do his own thing. I'm worried that it ends up being like the last X-Men series where it's just a lot of meandering filler while the "real" story is going on in the more prominent books.

I think it depends on what you're looking for, I suppose. A lot of people loved the character work that Carey was able to do while not on the "main" title. Granted, that book got dragged into X-crossovers a lot, but Marvel seems to be less likely to segregate the X-books into their own crossovers and tie them into the line wide events now, so everyone would be in the same boat.
I think Wood is ideal for a secondary x-book. He's so good at characterization.
My only worry is Storm. I hope that the offices know where her story will be told and know how to coordinate that cause right now I don't know where I'd go to get the mainline of her deal.

I'd say the "main" story for Storm will be in Uncanny X-Force... Yes Storm is in X-Men, but i don't think a lot of the major stuff will happen with her in the book. The only character of the roster where i see "major" stuff happening in this book is Jubilee and maybe Rachel, everyone else is in a book where they will have a major focus, Rogue in Uncanny Avengers, Storm/Psylocke in Uncanny X-Force and Kitty in All New and Wolverine and the X-Men.

Is that the real Storm rocking a mohawk, or is she that alternate reality Storm that I have not read about?
Do you know what the most frightening thing in the world is?

You make a very valid point. Which is way I'm not buying this new title.

That all makes sense and it makes this team choice seem even lamer. Who needs a Jubilee/Rachel book?
