    Huh. I thought Psylocke would be back on Uncanny X-Force. It will interesting to see who is taking her place on the team now.

    Illyana is finally in the main X-Men title.

    Even Colossus is there. If Marvel is smart they will put Kitty on the team and I will finally get the team roster I’ve wanted for years.

      Aren’t Kitty & Lockheed already revealed to be on a Wolverine team?

        Yeah, I guess so. Looks like Kitty’s in the “Wolverine and the X-Men” title instead of Uncanny.

        Darn. So close.

        If the writers could stop thinking Kitty had to be paired with Logan to be interesting, it would work. There would be a lot better story potential with her on a team with her lover, her best friend, and her foil (Emma).

          She’s going to be defined by the people around her regardless…

    WTF? What the heck is Psylocke doing there? And if that’s her, then who’s the katana wielder in X-Force?

    I’m gonna be staying FAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAR away from “Magik”, so I’ll not be reading that book…. Which is a shame, because I’m rather interested in “Danger”, and she seems to be on the ‘main’ team along with the Rasputins. It’s a pity that I hate Colossus’ sister so much that it’s going to … Actually, I’m okay with hating her. Some sacrifices must be made. ^_^

    Why do you dislike Magik?

      Because all I’ve read with her in it has her as this kinda-snotty europrincess, or she’s the Wonderful Damsel Who Everybody Has To Save. (Peter’s love for his sister sometimes borders on creepy to me.) I’ve not read -every- single Illyana Rasputin story EVER, but the ones I have read gave me a serious dislike for the character. Her whole ‘thing’ with Limbo & Belasco & Soulstones/swords/daggers blah blah fishcakes boring. So since then, I just avoid her — figuring that I will derive no enjoyment from her presence. :)

    Ditch the Colossus/Juggernaut and put Peter Rasputin back to his organic stainless steel self.

    Who is that with the metal dreadlocks in Uncanny?

      That is Danger. She is a sentient byproduct of the mansion’s danger room.

        Uh…huh…and how is it that this sentient byproduct is a “she”? Shouldn’t she be an “it”?

        I am sensing a bit of a theme. Each team seems to have a brick, a techno person and a magic/psionics specialist.

        Oh…and progeny of Scott Summers. That seems to be a bit of a theme too.

          Apparently the Shi-ar (or whichever alien race) techointelligence that was used to construct that version of the Danger Room wanted to live life from the distaff perspective. More seriously, I dunno -why- they decided it was a she, but “she’s” been female since she achieved sentience. Purely for those who wanted to see Robo-boobies maybe?

    And would someone give Magik her own uniform? She shouldn’t be wearing the student uniform at this stage of things.

      It seems like she grows this outfit whenever they turn her back into a kid.

        But she’s a young adult now and a member of the main team. She deserves her own uniform.

          Maybe everyone gets new uniforms that they aren’t showing in these previews?

            Now that she’s a young adult, I would be ok with her in her old Darkchilde costume (or lack of costume)
