PLEASE don't bring Jean back, try to keep x-men relevent don't start back peddling...so in my mind thats definately Exodus and i'd say the two women could be Emma(in black leather now..move over Jessica Rabbit) and maybe husk, polaris etc I don't think Cloak and Dagger for the main reason they've never been involved in any serious or meaningful way with X-men before where as Namor has. So Mimic makes sense as his former mutant envy would mean joining the X-men would really be a boost to his ego (as way back when he thought having all their powers made him better than them anyway) And as for professor X, although i'm a little behind in storylines I would totally believe xavier would deliberately pick this new team as his old students don't really want anything to do with him he would take the hint and adapt his goals to any new world order.

Emma, Prof. X, Namor, Mimic, Weapon Omega, Daken, Cloak & Dagger.This is the correct line-up. It will take over Uncanny for a spell. And It's not Namor leading the team, it's Emma, no matter what Namor thinks.From an interview with Matt Fraction:When fans meet Emma Frost's Dark X-Men, the team is fully formed and was handpicked by Norman Osborn -- with the exception of one member who's been placed on the team at Emma Frost's insistence.So is that Chuck - strategic move, Namor - different strategic move, Mimic or Michael Pointer?And yes that's our man Chuck on the team, apparently he thinks he can help the mutant cause more by having an active role on this team than trying to guide his wayward ward (Scott).Does anyone else find the two most powerful telepaths in the world on the same team redundant?And has anyone else heard this rumoury of Jean's return? God damn Phoenix power 'n 'ish!btw, link to the interview:http://comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=20846

k for one magneto is never a pointless character even when he got depowered he will always be relevant as a character but as shown in last months uncanny he got his powers back thanks to help from the high evolutionary....hmm wonder if he will be opening negotiatians with osborn or putting exodus in his place for his poor treatment during legacy from him and remember mags and prof figured out they could work together fianlly with the current state of mutant affairs being so desperate wonder how old mags feels about the camps in canada or propostion x about preventing past or present mutant breeding smacks of nazism to me and we all know how magneto feels about nazi's now that the first and best x villain is back at full power I hope to see him unleash his pent up rage on those that opposed him in the past and kicked him when he was down also wonder what his thoughts are on "the sisterhood" and his acolytes running to xavier who they long despised fanatically and tried to execute Rusty over though rusty eventually died anyway shame he had potential all hail Magnus :magneto:

See, I thought it was going to be a take over like Dark Wolverine and Ms. Marvel. Never once thought it might take over Uncanny, that'll be extremely interesting. To have the main title taken over.

Dark X-Men has to be replacing X-Men Legacy. I never even though about how Dark X-Men will mirror Dark Avengers in that these members will be imposters. I love the idea of Norman taking the time to think of people to substitute for the actual people. Though why he went with Cloak and Dagger, I have to read to figure out. It's really an awesome idea. Sort of like what the original X-Factor said they were doing, policing the mutants. Except the Dark X-Men really will be doing that.

I'd love to believe it's Kid Omega, the most chronically underused character of all time ever, but I think it's more likely to be the Omega Flight guy.Cloak and Dagger on an X team... sounds OK to me!I hope that this will be a continuation of a current title, and not a new book or mini, as I'm not buying any 3.99 titles out of point.

As long as this is just a new incarnation of the X-Men Legacy title and not another X-book all together, I'm happy. There are too many titles as it is and I think we can all agree that there are few things more frustrating than the same character doing different things in different books.

hmm that could just mean his story in legacy is finished . but we still have rogue and gambit . hmmm i wonder which side rogue falls on at the end of all of this . and this team definately spells trouble .i bet money that sometime in the fiture theres gonna be a namor vs. cyclops story . lol aghh marvels getting predictableanyway, still in the dark reign category but not so much in the x-men, i wonder what happens to elektra at the end of her mini . i could see her fitting in on the dark avengers if it wasnt for bullseye , but she'd NEVER side with stupid osborn . hmm i can see her with the opposing avengers

X-MEN: LEGACY # 225The Story: “The End” Professor X's odyssey brings him full circle as he answers a call from the Acolytes. But what do they want? Revenge? Or a new leader? Xavier’s LEGACY journey ends here, and it’s a doozie. Rated A …$2.99In Stores: Jun 17, 2009 - see details thats the end of xmen legacy that could mean professor x heard the call of acolytes and created the dark x men. :x-men:

This looks great. Dodson has had a handle on Emma since Gen X. I can't get enough of her, but this has me worried about her and Scott. I don't think Dodson will be the artist since he is locked onto Uncanny, but right now the X-books are my top books. Can't wait to learn more.

This looks interesting I love the idea of Mimic as part of a X-Men team I also want Post (the herald of onslaught) and Abyss (fom the AOA) to join the team, the cloak and dagger part of the team to me that sucks... :dead:

Great team. I remember back after Civil War, when Mark Millar pitched a new X-Men series where Namor was team leader. Marvel obviously kept the idea around, waiting for a better time. Usually, I'm the guy that complains, but THIS LOOKS REALLY COOL!!!Cloak? Dagger? Weapon Omega? Mimic? Emma? Namor? And THE Professor X!! This is gonna rock.If you've been following X-Men: Legacy, then you know there's a chance that isn't a Prof impostor. He just may turn dark. But if they do that, they need to kill Magneto. He'd be pretty pointless if Prof went bad.

The Art looks nice but the concept, I'm not a fan of the Idea though. However I've been all but avoiding X-Titles (besides X-Force and Wolverine Solo... hmm not sure wether you can really count Deadpool as part of the X-Family.) since house of M, so it just adds another book to avod for me. I like the Dark Reign story arc so far but yeah I'm just not a fan of the idea oh another "Dark" Team. But meh maybe it'll suprise me and be good. :dead:

X-Men legacy is still going to continue, the latest solicits for the book reveal that Xavier is leaving the book after dealing with the Acolytes, possibly an offer for him to be their new leader, and if 'Cloak' is actually Exodus, then that really is Xavier. Dark X-men were hinted at in the solicits for the Dark Avengers/X-Men crossover, and could just be Osborn's way of putting more of a foothold in the mutant side of the marvel universe. Also with Jean's apparent return in Uncanny in June, that could be the wedge that splits Emma and Cyclops, or at least in Emma's eyes, and that has to be Michael Pointer, I'm just not sure about the new 'Dagger'. I bet if anything, this might be a mini to run in conjunction with the 6 part Utopia crossover between Dark Avengers and X-Men, since there is so much going on in the main titles of the two teams.

I don't think Dark Reign will go on so fast than 'Civil war' and 'Secret invasion', we're just at the start of it actually and it's fine like that. Things are settings themselves ( some a little faster for me: 'Dark Avengers') and I don't think that such efforts like that to establish a real 'brand new world' will be blown away so easily.'Dark X-Men' is an interesting turn of the 'Dark Reign' concept, and I hope all the Marvel characters will have to take a choice again, tought that's more easilier with the vilain on the side and the heroes on the other, less 'complicated' than when it was a government's decision I guess.

[quote@SpyrosX The woman in the black leather besides Professor X is at the time an X-Factor to me.....Although she looks like Polaris there is no way she is her.........I don't think she is Dagger either......So that should be the real question:Who is the green-haired woman????[/quote] The woman in black leather and "green hair" (is your monitor going crazy?) is the person everyone thinks is Emma Frost.

To my opinion,i believe that we will see the beginning of the "Dark X-Men" in the upcoming Dark Reign:the Cabal and the Dark Avengers/X-Men mini-series!!!!As for the members i believe that these are some logical explanations:Emma Frost:White QueenDaken:Dark WolverineKing Namor:Sub-MarinerExodusProfessor X =ould be the real Charles Xavier or the Founder (circa Uncanny X-Men #360)Angel imposter = Mimicthe Omega mutant = Michael Pointer a.k.a. Weapon Omega or Kid Omega (also considered Omega Red,but it is highly unlikely)The woman in the black leather besides Professor X is at the time an X-Factor to me.....Although she looks like Polaris there is no way she is her.........I don't think she is Dagger either......So that should be the real question:Who is the green-haired woman????

[quote@WIZZAH WOW.1. Professor X2. Namor (team leader like Cyclops)3. Emma Frost4. Daken5. Gaurdian aka Weapon Omega6. Cloak7. Dagger8. Mimmici bet that is the real Prof X. Osborn must have made the mutants an offer they cant refuse, like stopping the government from rounding up the rest of the mutants in to concentration camps in Canada. Prof X started showing some badassness before he got shot in the head.overall what we should take from this is EMMA FROST DUMPED CYCLOPS FOR NAMOR!!!I always wanted the X-Men to break up in to two teams, X-Men & X-Force. Looks like itll finally happen. my guess as to the new X-Force roster:1. Wolverine2. Cyclops3. Archangel4. Cable5. Colossus6. Warpath7. Beast8. Vanisheri bet X-23 will die in Messiah War, and Cable will join. then after the Dark X-Men are formed Cyclops, Colossus and Beast will join the X-Force.[/quote] i thought that professor x died wen bishop shot him in tha head??

YES! Namor front and center where he belongs. I can't wait! And if that's Emma, it's not looking good for Scott and Emma. I am curious how he's going to get along with Xavier after the Illuminati fallout and after the way the Prof treated him in his mini-series last year.I was wondering about the supposed Cloak too. I don't recall seeing him without his hood before and hiding in the shadows.

D'Spayre the demon had some hand in the development in thier powers as well.I don't like the mutant aspect of them honestly but....something is off with cloak...pointy ears and long hair?I also wonder,if it is them, why the would be joining anything Osborn funded.They were so against Iron-Man and the Registration.While I would really like to see them at the fore-front of the marvel universe I don't think this is the place for them....if it is them.

[quote] "Cloak and Dagger aren't mutants are they? I thought their powers came from drug testing. why are they on a team called Dark X-men "[/quote] Tandy and Tyrone were offered shelter by henchmen of Maggia crime lord Simon Marshall. Marshall"s hospitality was only a front for testing a new synthetic narcotic. The two teenagers escaped, but not before they were injected with Marshall"s drug, which awakened latent mutant abilities in both of them. [url]http://www.marvel.com/universe/Dagger[/url]I've been waitng for the real Mimic to step back in to the X-fold. Now if they could bring in Firestar, I would be happy.

I'm surprised Cloak & Dagger are in it, I seem to remember a while back, one of the lead Marvel guys wanted to get rid of them or depower them, because technically they aren't mutants, they got their powers from the MGH they were given.Don't flame me for this, I just remember reading that.

Cable5. Colossus6. Warpath7. Beast8. Vanisheri bet X-23 will die in Messiah War, and Cable will join. then after the Dark X-Men are formed Cyclops, Colossus and Beast will join the X-Force.[/quote] First and foremost, the writers wont kill X-23. She accomplished the two missions they had. Kill the lead Purifier, and destroy the Legacy virus. Granted, she had help by one other member after she practically did it herself, but still. Not to mention the fact that she's the writers' baby. She's too new to die.Other issues, Colossus and Beast aren't killers. They can, but they're got those tricky little morals to stop them from random slaughter. Beast even announced his willingness to leave the Messiah to Cable's defences if Cyclops intended to kill Bishop with one of his devices. I can see Cable joining up, very easily, and maybe Deadpool for some comedic reasons, but other roster changes aren't likely. Except Vanisher leaving when Josh removes the tumor.Now, as far as this team goes, I was just going to say: Dark X-men=X-Force. Why have another killer team? I mean Osborn's Avengers was inevitable, but Osborn's X-men is just stepping into strange territory. I like Dark Avengers, but they may be trying too much of the same thing.Then again, I could be wrong. It could be a great book. Have to read to find out.

I may check out the story but The House of Ideas is falling flat on these titles. Is Dark Punisher next? Dark Sentry? Dark Guardians of the Galaxy? Reminds of the Kirkman/Bendis debate where after discussing Dark Avengers Kirkman jokingly asked which Dark title would be next. I read and enjoy Dark Avengers so far but these titles are just silly to me.
