  1. 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.

      • 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…

  2. 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. ^_^

    • 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. :)

      • 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?
