... trying to think of other major X-Women ... nope, you are right. Love this team, but I wouldn't mind seeing some of the more underused ladies making appearances in this book. (Although I wouldn't be shocked if that's the plan anyway...)

There are like, 200 X-Men, there's no reason for all of these ones, most of whom are starring in other comics too to band together just because comics just discovered 'girl power' 15 years too late.


Would it bug you if it was an all male team?

I like the creative team, but I'm already buying three X-Men books.

I'm skipping this.

Because Marvel hates Generation X.

So as I say, this makes seven X-Men titles (plus, of course, two X-Force, two Wolverine, X-Factor, Gambit and A + X). Takes the piss, really.

X-books are pretty much all I buy from Marvel, so if the entire universe were just X-books, that would be MORE than fine with me. :lol:

That's where I'm at with X-books currently. Yes, I'm reading many more than I typically do (WatXM, ANXM, will read Uncanny and Wolverine once they come out). The first sign of a crossover, they're all getting dropped except WatXM; I thought it handled AvX quite well. Same goes for this book.

It feels like it's missing a young girl x-person. Someone Jubilee and Kitty can mentor as former young girl x-people.
