That goes against the whole point of the book, in my opinion.
This isn't the X-Men. This is humanity fighting back. The roles are reversed. There's more story potential in a human Sabretooth and Jean, realizing they're going to have to learn to fight like these X-Terminated.. realizing that they've relied on their powers for far too long, and are really nothing special compared to the peak physical and fighting skills these regular humans have, against an entire world ready to obliterate them.
