With Wolverine and the X-Men #1 coming out this month I’ve been in a frenzy trying to figure out the cast as you probably noticed from my last X-themed post. And, just today the Husk facebook group just confirmed she will be featured in the new book. I’M SO HAPPY.
However I had been planning this post of the top 5 characters I would love to be on the new team. So without further ado here are my pics.
Ever since Uncanny X-Men where she was a prisoner of the Phallanx, I have adored Paige Guthrie. Throughout that saga, Generation X and then Uncanny again I followed every little appearance hoping that someone would do her the justice Lobdell did in the very beginning.
Yeah I didn’t always like him. He was cocky and a bit of a lad in the New Mutants and X Academy series but he grew on me. And then he really grew on me when caught up in the X-Force comings and goings. And, I’ve been fascinated with his whereabouts after killing Wither in the Necrosha Storyline. I have this little fantasy that he somehow meets up with my next character randomly and is travelling around finding himself, doing good acts and looking for atonement.
Of all the future warriors from Bishops timeline, Fixx is my favourite. She was actually the star of some of my fanfiction musings and dreamings and WE DON’T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO HER. Come one Peter David, clue us in. Or, just let another writer bring her to the forefront or even as a bit character for one of the main books. Please. Fixx and her psionic sprites were so cool.
Skids started out as a morlock and appeared in the first incarnation of X-Factor. I really enjoyed her role when it got upgraded to the short mini series X-Terminators and then to New Mutants. But, she got a bum deal out of it all and Not even her last outing as a government agent/whatever was satisfactory in my eyes. Give her a bigger role.
Paulie had a lasting effect on me as well as Wraith who was also an X-man during the Eve of Destruction Storyline, but out of the two I preferred Paulie. Big mouthed little fish in a pond that was too big for him. He’s just another forgotten character that I want to hear from. He was rude , arrogant, funny and a character who could probably get under the skin of any character if given the time. And he was indestructible.
So there you have it. Who knows when these ex-X-Men will show up again. Hopefully sooner than later. But hope you enjoyed this post. Who would you want on an X-team?
