Professor X - TP Supreme Badass

Cyclops - Crazy Optic Blasts & Cap level Leadership

Jean Grey - More OP TK than usage of TP

Angel - Think Captain America level physicals, with highly durable wings

Beast - Make more current levels, with his higher level strength, durability, regen & intellect

Iceman - More current power levels, but not too OP

@rockette: It might be hard to do an Avengers Vs X-men (Civil War style) with Prof X because he can just freez them and he is a glass cannon

@tethadam:

Avengers have those too, Scarlet Witch for example.

I think it would be good. The ones I listed are the original X-Men anyway.

I feel like mostof the X-men are glass canons..anyway

Prof X

Cyclops

Marvel Girl

Storm

Colossus

Bobby

I know you said 6, but in this version, Professor X doesn't get as much visibility. I want the camera to be on our X-men.
The villians will include the Brotherhood with a version of Scarlett Witch, Destiny, Avalanche, QS & Rogue. Destiny leads them while taking orders from a mysterious leader (either Mags/Mystique neither of which have much presence in the movie)

@tethadam: You can just have some plot reasons they can’t use their psychic powers or give Scarlet Witch a buff/amp.

Anywho my starting Six:

Professor X

Cyclops

Jean(Starting Out With TK Only)

Night Crawler

Gambit

Storm

I would start from here and add on memebers. I would introduce Rouge and Iceman in a spiderman movie as students that attend Peter’s high school.

My Xmen would start 5 years after Endgame. Assuming the movie ends with no one remembering the snap. Except 1 person in the government does remember and never wants something that horrible to ever happen again. So they experiment on a a patient zero: James Howelett. All this will be revealed in a conspiracy sort of mystery. No one believes Mutants are real. It’s seen as a ridiculous paranoid myth like lizard people.

Wolverine would be an assassin created by the government to kill Proffesor X due to his adamantium skull given him protection from Professor X’s mental abilities.

Due to the end of Endgame it creates the mutant phenomenon. Jubilee would work for Buzzfeed and would be investigating.

The Weapon X Program(Shadow Goverment) Wolverine, Huntsman, and Fantomex would be hunting down Mutants. The Government would be terrified of Proffesor X and other Pyshic mutants spefically as well as other Mutants overall.

We’ll find out later the Mutantation always existed, but was triggered by endgame and the governments own experiments.

Rogue is from the south not NY
no no no no no... i dont want xmen shoehorned like this, especially disregarding all of the history of the background- it just doesnt work. its an insult to the lore.
The snap? so they dont remember the snap nor the fact that they had demi-gods, Green rage monsters, Sorcerers and sorceress, flying robots and no one believes in mutants? Super powered beings have been around since 2008 in that universe. thats 10 years b4 the snap.

why kill mutants lol, theres already the sokovia accords

None of the original X-Men. No Cyclops, no Jean Grey, Beast or Iceman. Instead, similar to Giant Size X-Men #1 I'd start with a new team consisting of Wolverine, Shadowcat, Nightcrawler, Forge, Emma Frost and Rogue. Some well known but not utilized as well as they could be, others only marginally seen in the Fox Mutantverse. Storm I would keep over in Black Panther for at least a movie before adding her to the X-Men and the original X-Men I would add in a separate movie after the Fantastic Four movie comes out. The most important thing is to make these new MCU X-Men different enough so as to not invite immediate comparison to the X-Men movies of the past. Obviously, Wolverine is about as necessary as Batman is to a Justice League movie. He puts butts in the seats at theaters, because he is arguably the most popular mutant. From there, though the MCU needs to break from the past and create something different.

@unusedusername: I would have Jean Grey, Cyclops, Beast, Iceman, Storm and either Colossus or Archangel. I would introduce Rogue and Nightcrawler when Mystique becomes involved. I suppose u could also introduce wolverine and sabretooth along with mystique since both of them have a history with her.

@phisigmatau: There’s only s small number of heroes and powered people in general in the MCU(since the movies ignore Inhumans). If a large portion of the public developed powers(in the thousands) it would be a huge concern and could be seen as a plague of sorts since a lot of the powers would have huge downsides.

You’ve must have never read the Ultimate Comics and also Rouge can still be from the south; people move. Duh.

@phisigmatau: Why Kill them? No one on Earth mind except Scarlet Witch has any sort of mental abilities and she can’t read minds. If someone could read massive amounts of data in people’s heads it would be a huge threat to the government and also the government would want to clean up any trace of the their experiments which is like how things develop in the Ultimate Universe.

@phisigmatau: As far as believing in Mutants go people in the real world deny climate change, hell a good number of people deny the Holucaust and half the country belived Obama was a secret Muslim. Belief systems are complex. In The Jessica Jones TV show despite the appearance of aliens and avengers everyone treated Jessica like a lunatic when she started talking about Kilgrave controlling people’s actions.

Yes I did read ultimate X-men, it was poorly reviewed for a reason.
I agree the response would be the same, however the immediate outbreak of mutants while neglecting years of history ruins many characters IE Apocalypse, Wolverine, Selene, Sinister for starters.

And no, I don't like shoehorning the X-men into playing second fiddle to other ppls teams, especially Rogue who has a rich history and backstory with the brotherhood that would make more sense for her to be there. Her putting Carol in a coma again would be awesome but wont make sense if shes an X-men or random high school character first.

but have it your way

conspiracy theory and flat out denial of evidence such as what goes on our friggin tvs a totally different thing here. There is a difference between denying theories and denying historical facts.

@phisigmatau: Actually it is it’s literally the plot to most of the Xmen stories. The potential danger is real. Also you could layer the story and have other incidents happen. Also...um people inanite real world genicide for lesser reasons like race and religion? How is what I’m proposing far fetched?

Firstly, I don't count Xavier as one of the six as he's the guy who brings them together.

Either a nod to the O5 in:

Jean - TP or TK only and she begins to learn the other throughout the films)
Cyclops
Beast
Angel or Ice Man - Only one of them so they can be the playboy goofball who needs to learn maturity and then bring in the other later on who is struggling with their power.
Havok - Without the damn brainwashing helmet!
Polaris - Teasing Magneto.

This group has smarts, potential powerhouses, relationships (Jean/Scott and Alex/Lorna), people struggling with their powers or those who really want to live a normal life but feel like they must be X-Men (Alex/Lorna). What this also does is somewhat distance the film from the Fox series while also having enough characters for non-comic readers to know who is who.

Or do a Claremont style round up against a low-grade villain that's captured some of the above with Xavier having to do a quite round up:

Colossus
Banshee
Storm
Gambit
Betsy Braddock
Forge or Sage

An eclectic group allowing for unique interactions. You can then have some of the above or some of those rescued drift away by the end of the film so that they can spin off into their own movies and have a core group in an ensemble sequel.
