– X-MEN –
main cast, though not all of them would appear at once all the time
STORM (leader) / COLOSSUS /NIGHTCRAWLER / DAZZLER / SHADOWCAT
SABRA / PIXIE / NORTHSTAR / DAYTRIPPER
mission statement : acting like the public face for mutanity, the super-heroes that save the day agains all odds. Some of them already have celebrity-like statut: NORTHSTAR was a famous skier, DAZZLER a music sensation that’s been around for… a while now, and STORM was married to the king of Wakanda. So they could play on that and make them the “popular” mutants, the counter-culture icons.
