X-Men Writer Rosenberg Posts Glimpse of New Team

The team consists of the following members:

  • Havok (Alex Summers)- Younger brother of Scott Summers, has the ability to absorb cosmic radiation and convert it into raw plasma.
  • Multiple Man (Jamie Madrox)- Detective and veteran adventurer. Mutant ability to create self-sustaining duplicates of himself.
  • Magik (Illyana Rasputin)- Russain national, sibling of X-Man Colossus; has the mutant ability to create teleportation discs. Has a natural talent for magic. Sorcerer Supreme of Limbo.
  • Karma (Xian Coy Manh) – An original member of the New Mutants. Can take control of another person’s mind among other psionic abilities.
  • Hope Summers– First mutant born after M-Day; Mutant Messiah; adopted daughter of Cable. Mutant ability to copy other mutant powers and wield them on an Omega Level.
  • Banshee (Sean Cassidy)- Once dead, now alive, former Interpol Agent, has a mutant ability to project intense sonic blasts with his voice that also enables flight.
  • Mirage (Dani Moonstar)- Valkyrie of Asgard; Founding member and leader of the New Mutants, a former mutant with the ability to manifest the fears of others in the form of illusions in the real world.
  • Wolfsbane (Rahne Sinclair)- Mutant metamorph with the power to transform into a werewolf-like form; former New Mutant and 2x member of X-Factor
  • Warlock– New Mutant, alien, techno-organic, shapeshifter.

Including Slim and Wolvie, that’s 11-members! By far one of the largest rosters, not consisting of students I have ever seen fielded in an active X-Men book. It may be inevitable that we’ll see thinning of the ranks sooner rather than later. At first glance, there’s obviously a heavy New Mutant presence in the book. No one on the roster is what I’d consider to be fodder, so from the get-go, the stakes here are going to be high. Outside of Cyke and Wolverine, I don’t think anyone is safe. But I’d expect nothing less from a book of this magnitude.

Are there any X-Men members you wish had been included? Which X-Men member are really hoping to see shine on the new team?
