X-Men editor Nick Lowe: "Nate Grey was the hope for the future, but he's been torn apart by the present. Can he get himself together and fulfill his destiny?

"When The Scarlet Witch said 'No more mutants,' bubblegum-chewing X-gal Jubilee found out just how bad life can get. She's de-powered and depressed. But is the world done with Ms. Jubilation Lee?"

"Something scary is brewing inside of Gambit. But is it good scary or bad scary?"

"The scariest person in the Marvel Universe already has ties to Wolverine. Does Warren Worthington III have enough cash to hire Elektra to solve the X-Men's worst problems?"

"What's Blade's beef with the X-Men?"

"Raised by Cable, baptized in fire by Bastion, and with the deaths of many mutants on her shoulders, is there any chance of Hope being normal?"

"The Savage She-Hulk is a total wild card. You may think she has nothing to do with the X-Men, but if history proves anything, Hulks are unpredictable."

"The X-Men's former archenemy, Magneto, has joined their inner circle. As consigliere to Cyclops, he may have the best chance ever to secure the future for mutantkind."

"Pslocke is a psychic ninja who can cut your mind in half with her psi-sword seconds before she cuts your body in half with a katana. You do not want to mess with her.

"The friendly neighborhood Spider-Man is picking up a new neighborhood: San Francisco. Will the hero who gets no respect joins the species that gets no respect?"

Ever since Dark Reign began, the only good titles have been Dark Avengers and the X-Titles. Re-integrating the X-Men with the main Marvel U is a bad idea. In addition, I have readily accepted every supernatural occurance the X-Men have faced, whether it be aliens, cyborgs, time travel, resurrections.. and it all seemed to flow with the main continuity of the books. But the X-Men vs Vampires is a storyline that I would put into a category with Marvel Zombies: cool idea, but don't screw up the main story because of a brainwave.

From some of the interviews that I have read on ign regarding the new x line up, it sounds like these characters are only going to be team ups instead of being on the team. In the interview it said the x men are going to be more involved with the marvel u than in the past. The first storyline is going to be about vampires and blade is only going to be on the team for that story. I don't think that marvel is going to have spider man as an x man just a team up to fight some spidey villan that attacks the x men or vice versa. If this is the case than I am really excited for this, mostly because of nate grey returning. I wonder if he will come back during second comming of later than that.

I'm looking forward this, I reckon "We are the X-Men" is a tagline for their direction into the Heroic Age. Maybe other characters are joining up because there are so few mutants left? Jubilee back in the fold is cool too, provided she gets repowered but I can't see her being turned into a vampire. The preview art for the first arc of X-Men #1 shows a variety of characters as vampires but doesn't necessarily mean they will all be turned. I reckon it's just a spin off of this artwork as a teaser for the upcoming story.

Hmm, I wanted Jubilee back in the spotlight, but this isn't what I was thinking of. Still, maybe it'll be cool. Or maybe it'll be mass chaos; who knows.

[quote@feenicks007 From most of the posts I've read, there is a collective Whine that you all share "Marvel is doing things that aren't the same as they did last year". Apparently Spidey should only swing through NY, only Mutants should be on the team (even though there have been plenty through the years who aren't), and they should only do 6 issue storylines that are the exact same thing over and over again with new villians. Grow up people.[/quote] I agree with this 100%. Why are people so scared of change? If you want a good story and good character development things HAVE to change! I hope this brings the X-Men into the Marvel Universe proper and is used to make great stories. That's all I care about is a good story. Instead of complaining, why aren't you guys excited about what new things may come for the X-Men and mutants in general?

My nostalgia sense tells me to tell you to bring back the early 90's x-man line up... good times. But I am just gonna see how this plays out, its a bit of a mouthful atm.

Well congrats to Marvel, some shameless teaser art and people are up in arms. Any attention is good attention. I know I'll be looking forward to the C2E2 announcement tomorrow. - And I hope it changes my opinion about this book, which so far is crap. Reading the posts, and looking at the covers, it looks like this is supposed to be a 'How the X-Men deal with the rest of the Marvel U.' book. - Oh no! the red she hulk's on the rampage, XMen assemble!- Sure we still love you vamp Jubilee, of course we'll protect you from Blade!The Xmen have been kinda in their own little world, and as many people have pointed out - that's because that's how they work best! If you want mutants on a team that covers the whole marvel u, throw firestar or quicksilver back on the avengers (with wolverine and beast) and call it a day. The only thing that could make me want to read the book less is if it was written by claremont. Or if they fought Galactus. Or if Claremont wrote that they fought Galactus. Marvel - QUALITY over quantity, come on now.

:dead: In difference with all the freak fans that are crying about Spidey joining the x-men in San Francisco I think its a cool idea. I mean why the hell not? there are all kinds of super heroes in the Avengers team so I dont see any problem with that whatsoever Spidey belongs to New York, so maybe he could be in the X-men for some time and then just be a out side member coming in and out if the team need him for something really big or messed up.I have been reading since I'm 14 and now I'm 26, a professional in communications and I most say that the walt-disney thing is kind of scary because in the long run those corporate **** will destroy all of what marvel has accomplished in all of this years just to $ell and $ell.

[quote@feenicks007 Why wasn't anyone complaining that Jamie Madrox was in the X-Men, or Beast? Madrox is an enhanced being and Beast's gene's were mutated, not a natural forming of the Xgene.[/quote] Beast was introduced as a mutant in X-Men issue #1 in 1963....

Read somewhere on this stream where namor is NOT a mutant...Cant be bothered to go back and read who posted by seriously, by definition HE IS INDEED A MUTANT!!! I know everyone is tsuck on the X gene but seriously, HE WAS BORN A MUTATION because of the father/mother interbreeding. :x-men:

Finally some closure with X-Man! I was wondering when he would re-appear after Dark X-Men.I'm also excited about Jubilee's return - albeit a vampire is a bit strange. But it does explain his "beef with the X-Men," letting a vampire walk among them.As for Elektra, like what everyone else is saying, I don't really understand.Savage She-Hulk and Spider-Man will make things interesting, too.

Probably no more than they did by spoiling the fact Hope is still alive and X-Man gets away from his predicament at the end of Dark X-Men.

Wait, when did Jubilee become a Vampire? Did they just spoil something by revealing that?

Okay, NOW Blade's starting to make sense. Still, I'm convinced Marvel's just screwing with us.But Jubilee as a vampire is DEFINITELY an interesting development. That's something I can actually get into(though honestly, I'd prefer if she just stayed with the New Warriors).

I don't think everyone on these posters will be on the team. In the caption for Blade it simply says: "What's Blade's beef with the X-Men?" He isn't on the team, he is hunting the team b/c Jubilee is vamped out. Spidey being in San Fran can work b/c his firs adventure on Avengers will pit him against Wonder Man, who is usually based on the west coast. He is probably not on the team itself. Personally I think there will be a lot more to this. Besides, I am interested in seeing Nate and Hope together.

Angel is hiring Electra for a job, considering that she's a mercenary, that seems logical. Jubilee looks like a Vampire, so Blade being there isn't far fetched. Hope, Nate Grey, Pyslocke are all X-men anyway. Spidey has had his life turned upside down, it wouldn't be suprising to see him take a trip and maybe help out some friends. You're all basing your assumptions off of a couple of covers, which as we all know, never show what's really in the comic itself. Why wasn't anyone complaining that Jamie Madrox was in the X-Men, or Beast? Madrox is an enhanced being and Beast's gene's were mutated, not a natural forming of the Xgene.[/quote] Yeah thats true. Hopefully Astonishing gives the fans there fill of mutant goodness while these guys piss everybody off.I guess this is all coming down to how good the stories actualy are. If its good everybody will remember the unorthodox move Marvel made as one of the most interesting succes yet. If its bad, It will leave a bad taste for years to come and be imfamous for being one of the dumbest decisions ever made by the house of ideas.Still... what the hell is spidey doing in San Fran? The only reason I ask is because hes on at least one Avengers team and is thrice monthly is still set in NY.If in either of those titles he decides to up and move out west, I'll be okay with this. Marvels countinuity is so messed up....

Hey I must say, that I like the idea of Elektra in X-Men. I mean she's really close with Logan and at least we will have chance to see her somewhere.Thanks to Jubilee we now know why is there Blade on the team right :D

I'm just tired of Cyclops not actually getting in on the action. He has done an amazing job in strategizing and leading and his depth and overall awesomness has really been shown lately, but he hasn't been in the field kicking butt. I just want to see him take a more active role in the field kicking butt and taking names. As for the rest, i like how they've really fleshed out Warren Worthington's character lately in X-force and Beast, until he left, was really seeing plenty of development time in Uncanny, but I still want to see more Iceman in upcoming stories.

Judging by previous comments I'm not the only one who feels like I've missed a turn looking at Jubes' fangs. Is it blood-flavoured chewing gum from now on?But at least we now have some proper X-Men on board. Including Gambit! Wo-hoo! (Now can we please get rid of the surplus like Spidey.)the mecca: Seriously? [i] More[/i] focus on Cyke? I was kinda hoping for a book that would contain a page or two without him every once in a while.

Keep in mind this is coming from someone who stopped buying X-men when Grant Morrison started writing them.. But this is just plain AWESOME! This may just get me to start buying a X-Men title again (outside of the purely fantastic X-Force title).I love seeing Marvel mix up all these characters and start connecting some dots. The Marvel Universe is a UNIVERSE so of course these characters should eventually have to interact. This should make for some good storytelling!

the_mecca

so far this is kinda annoying. i don't want most of these folks to join the X-men. anyone who has been apart of the team already, welcome back. but i can't stand Elektra. she has no buisness being there. Blade i could see how they might squeeze him in but why bother. the X-men have enough of a cast. plus we need to get Cyclops and Iceman more time in the spotlight. not add in extra people to clog up the works. i really hope all these people wind up in X-men Legacy so i can drop that title. :iceman:

Ok... why is Jubilee a vampire? And what does that mean for Blade? Hmmm..... at least this time, both characters actually are X-men. It'd be cool if Nate showed up again. I'd love to watch him break out from wherever Osbourne is keeping him. The ending of Dark X-Men 5 made very little sense to me. Don't know how they actually subdued him. But yeah, break him out and let him join the team. Fun stuff. But again... why is Jubilee a freaking vampire?

This new poster, for some reason, I don't have a problem with. Sure Jubilee was probably the most worthless x-man ever and no longer has her powers, but for some reason it seems interesting. Nate Grey on the team would be interesting too. I approve of this new poster, but that isn't saying much since the other oes were just ridiculous.

Calm down ppl it's not that bad, this is most likely just a team up book. These characters will probably join up with the x-men for a story arc to help against some villian and then move on, so another random character can team up. And if you ask me this is what the x-men need, fighting along side other heroes without it having to be some big event. This could be fun.

If I was going to look at that line up blindly I would say it was a one off Marvel Team Up, but X-Men??? Blade and now Electra, nothing againt them they are awesome character but they bring nothing to the "x" in X-Men. Its like sticking Terminator, Micky Mouse, Batman, Celine Dion, Big Bird and Calvin Klein into a team and calling it the Justice League. Not gonna work

If the Xmen are staying in San Fran how is Spiderman gonna swing back and forth? It is way too much that Wolverine does it but Spiderman? Elektra and Blade? I would like them in a series with Ares and Punisher... that would be a good team but not Xmen.

I'm convinced Marvel is doing this just to piss us all off and make us squirm. Why in the hell would Elektra join the X-Men? That just makes no God Damn sense. When all is said and done, it's probably going to be all the people that are already X-Men that are going to be in the X-Men

Okay, this one makes a little more sense (except for the whole not even being a super-human let alone a mutant). At least the last time we saw Elektra was helping X-Force (namely Domino) in fighting a couple of the Rulks. So I can see an invitation extended to her.

InfectionXIII

Now wait just a cotton-picking minute... BLADE?! Call me crazy, but I can see just about anyone else on that list as an X-Men member... except for Blade. He just seems so random. The guy rarely interacts with ANY of the X-Men(with few exceptions), and he really has no real connection to their plight aside from the fact that he's an outcast; but then again, who in the MU isn't? Plus, not to be a nitpicker, but what happened to that robotic hand/arm cannon he got as a result of his last series and time on MI:13? Please oh please tell me that series was officially made non-canon(*desperately clinging to false hope*).I seriously hope I'm just getting ahead of myself and Lowe's just screwing with us.
