– GENERATION X –
I would totally resurrect that title. These characters had such a good dynamic especially in the first year of episodes, I think they could still work today, each one of them have evolved so much, it would be fun to see them reunite.
The reason for their gathering would simply be that the school team would have no telepath to operate Cerebro, so they would need Emma to travel around the world and try and recruit the mutants survivor.
She would ask her former students to join, as she would really trust them to give their best to save the next, and probably last, generation of mutants.
it would have a race-against-time feel, with the characters always on the move, travelling all around the world. This would be a good opportunity to visit lots of cool marvel places.
So the team would be composed of
CHAMBER : still pissed Age of X left him with half his face off again. still super sceptical about the X-Men way of doing things. still one of my favorite character ever 🙂
EMMA FROST : She has had it. She can’t stand the hypocrisy of non-mutants heroes, she has goal in mind, save the mutant race at any cost. Without realizing, she takes over Cyclops role. The faculty regularly questions her sometimes ruthless methods but, like the honey badger, she does not give a shit, as long as she saves more mutants kids.
She is still in love with Cyclops but has an ongoing affair with another “damaged good” : Forge and they have an agreement to never talk about their respective “work”
M: having lost one of her little sister to the terrigen mist, Monet is driven by anger and rage, she totally support Emma’s views, and would actually go even further in the confrontation with non-mutants heroes and especially Inhumans
HUSK: with the tutelage of Emma, Paige has regained a bit of her sanity and is even more focus on controlling her powers so she would not keep on losing her identity each time she sheds her skin. She has close ties with some kids back at the academy ( Gentle, Anole, Mercury), that help her stay grounded. She is still the lovable over-archiever, political conscious and caring girl. and still my favorite mutant ever.
JUBILEE : As she witness the death of another young mutant, Jubilee realize she is still relevant and can still make a change. Suppported by students at the academy (bling! trance, rockslide), she agrees to join Emma in her globe-travelling quest. Afraid that he might be an easy target if he stays at the school, she task Kymera to take care of Shogo, making sure the two of them regularly rejoin them along their endless trip.
Their adventures would lead them to meet several foes and menaces
– The Hellfire Club’s New Hellions : Kiden Nixon (from NYX) codenamed Pause, Host (from the Mysttique serie), Liam Connaughton (from X-men Legacy) codenamed T4, Face (from the Inferno baby), Kaufmann (from X-force annual) codenamed Bayonet, Ginny Guzman (from uncanny X-force) codenamed MindMoth, Tucker (from Cable & X-Force) codenamed Oceaneer
– The Orphan makers, a band of fanatics bent on collecting the youngest mutants as trophies
– a new and vicious Upstarts group, sworn to become the last and most worthy mutants alive
I would buy this so fast! Also, beautiful art as always.
