Eh. Been done before, but any reason to talk about my favorites or get my creative juices flowing.

Marvel Girl (Jean Grey)- Team Leader and Psychic

Nature Girl- Oddball choice and Elemental

No Caption Provided

Hope Summers- Weapon Specialist and Wild Card

No Caption Provided

Trinary- Technological Genius/ Technopath

•Wolverine or X-23- A damage soaker would be nice to have. I have a preference for X-23, but Logan has always has good potential for dialogue with Jean.

Gentle- Physical Powerhouse and potential dialogue with Trinary.

Eh, though rare, there has been examples of spinoffs with lesser known characters outselling or keeping up with the main title, and there has been examples of teams comprised of less popular characters selling well. As long as the art and story are good, the idea that the team has to perpetually have the quadrumvirate of Cyclops, Storm, Wolverine and Jean Grey is not necessarily true.

I always wanted a New X-men squad borderline breaking with the X-men and searching their own way.

Hellion, Surge, Mercury, Rockslide, Cuckoos, Dust, Elixir, X23 and co. I even had an idea how to make their own microverse (not literal) where some radical changes for some characters would be made to enhance the drama and stakes and pave way for growth and distinct developments through the dynamic of this specific generation exclusively based on its own gallery. Not that they would be completely isolated, but they totally be completely self sufficient in my book.

@adamtrmm: Back in New X-Men when the team was fighting Nimrod, that would've been a great place to have the team get lost in the time stream. This team lineup is pretty sick, it's a shame most of the characters have been hung out to dry.

Even after AvX. And that's right for the whole franchise basically. Everyone was in a spot of fresh start and everyone had still the baggage to draw inspiration from. Most of my fanfiX revolve around this specific era. 8 years and almost nothing of significance actually happened.

Where do you post FanifiX? I've been working up a doozy. Oh, and I've been writing my own fanfic too.

Never really "published" anything, it's all on PC. There are just times when I find myself overwhelmed with the ideas for these characters and more, I feel the urge to write it down. But this overwhelming can be also problematic as I could as well not be able to cope with this tide of information that I desperately want to write down as "purely" as it rang in my head I'd just put a laconic note in there to be reminded of a grander idea because there are so many of them to write all down and there's also so little time to perfect it.

There's a reason why being a writer is full time job heh

@adamtrmm: I haven't published either, but I love putting teams together and writing backstories for characters that don't have one including birthplace and full name. Even wrote one for Malice. I had a bunch of different What If... ideas and then decided to roll them all into one alternate reality and figure out how that could work without being absolutely ridiculous. (in my own mind) I'm an artist so I totally get the notion of "purity of thought and execution" It's easy to pick things apart to the point of holding down that delete key.

I'll message you more about the fanfic if you have any interest, and if you wanna share too I'm all eyes. (not like Eye-boy, ew)

Or since the Ultimate Universe is back and nostly has younger heroes still there maybe they could be in that spot or be the new Xmen 2099 anything but stuck in writers limbo hung out to dry in favor the Glob Hermans and Children of the Atom.

Definitely want to know more about that fanfic. And want to hear your idea for their own microverse

I'm more into things like "ok there are at this place and at this time, considering that everything that happened until then is canon, now what?". That's my MO kinda. That's why I go back to post AvX setting because they were exactly where I wanted them. Mutants are back to being part of the terrain equation and superhero landscape. With Cyclops leading the "rogue" X-squad and Storm leading the conventional one. New X-men branching out because they don't really synthesize with her grand vision (there was an idea for her to make the X-schools an international thing, with the motto being "mutant kids ain't going anywhere, and YOU would want them trained, educated and disciplined." and them dealing with all the complications that occur based of that initiative alone. I guess I shouldn't explain how easy, diverse and obvious those complications would be. Registering an X-brand and officially being legal representatives of mutants in US and potentially internationally. That's just one little part. To give a idea for what I was aiming. After Bendisisms, Terrigenocide, Rosecunny drivel, and what not, I just don't want that baggage, 100% of dead weight that isn't worth a penny.

Yeah I also have those "mental blocks" in my mind "would that be conventional? would editors allow me to go with stuff like this? would it sell?" Haha silly stuff!

Believe it or not but I too thought of putting them into the 2099 timeline so that they would able to shine there since they clearly can't in the mainverse with so much competition for limited panel time and pet favorites these days.

It began with Academy X squads that were about to graduate but Storm's grand design (I wrote about it above to @thunderscream), well let's just say they didn't fell for it and there's a scene where they call her out on her compete absence in times they needed her when their friends died, hence their lack of trust in her, and from there they left the X-men to their own devices and go to search for their own place under the sun. In the beginning, it would have an X-factor meeting Heroes for Hire vibe (since now they have to pay for the rent and stuff like that, I'd like it to feel more real and authentic). That's the premise, from there, shit's getting complicated - histories and interpersonal relationships force others take actions they wouldn't be willing now when things are finally getting stable, but as we know all too well - there's no comfort zone for comic book characters heh.

Spoiler alert (lol) I'd kill a Cuckoo because I have very specific development for the remaining two in my mind. Drastically different for both, but character driven nonetheless.

I love the idea of Academy X International!

My jam is full-on rewrite, tidying up some things I consider messes while possibly creating some new messes because I do love some of the convoluted time-travel/clone capers and I want things to be drastically different from the norm, but with nods to canon.

@thunderscream:

Funny, I actually like playing with canon even with the things I don't like. For example, in Uncanny X-force there's a scene where Magneto asks Wolverine to kill some Nazi he presumably couldn't off himself because of a childhood trauma. Absolutely imbecilic and ridiculous idea that has zero understanding of who Magneto is. So I had an idea to expand on it and to course correct that at the same time. For that I've written a meeting between Erik and Logan in a restaurant, that was initiated by Logan for "reasons (that's a whole other story that branches out of it that that relies on other developments)" where they discuss the history and bad blood between them ("canon"), and that in my opinion is worth exploring because I myself wanted to see it settled. Another thing I thought it would be interesting if in this setting they'll ask each other hard hitting questions because as unlikely allies, they have to gain at least some kind of trust to go on. So Wolverine's question would be "Why did you ask me to kill that guy? You are hardly known for your inability to get your hands dirty." And Magneto's answer would "Oh believe me, I dreamed about washing my hand in his blood so many times. But after everything... everything he's taken from me... seeing him on that farm, living happily with a family he built there... knowing what I can take away from him now... was an urge I was afraid to challenge..." basically insinuating Erik if he goes there himself, he might as well kill his family just to get his "perfect" revenge, but since he understands that's him reaching the point of no return, and factually becoming what he hates, he then decides he'd better ask someone he knows can do the job as clean and as straightforward as possible hence him giving it to Wolverine, who's well, the best at what he does which ain't no nice lol and to that Logan will react "Damn. Now I'm glad I did it for ya. Because no one returns the same from things like that. Not even the likes of you."

Well, I wrote too much already, wanted to keep on going but I won't annoy you with these potential TLDRs. I hope you get what I mean now heh Another reason why I'm less into scraping things and doing my own take, is because I find the Marvel architects' foundations to be probably some of the best raw material and resources out there.

And I totally agree about the raw material, you can take these characters anywhere there just has to be a meaningful purpose.

I encourage you to share more, your ideas all sound pretty solid and it's gettin' hard out here for an old school X-fan.

Totally. I also believe in character integrity and if characters have to switch ideology, I'd rather see it developed organically on panel, and not "just because" as it happened too much already.

Well, I shared a raw concept for my post AvX ideas here. And I go into detail with Uncanny here.

(it was really hard to find btw... and I swear I remember sharing much more, but that's all i did find *sigh*)

@thunderscream:

lol yeah apparently I never got to the point of writing it down for some reason. X-univese is about the X-men going global. The things I mentioned about Storm's idea to go international with the education system and making the X-brand a legal and a recognized entity? Well it's the expansion of it. Think stuff like them becoming voluntary ambassadors to bring in Shiar representatives to Earth and form a first legal, intergalactic relationship and a pact between UN and an alien empire. Being mediators of what is de juro first formal treaty between Earth and Shiar would be quite a power act by X-men that will show the world they strive towards security and welfare of the planet as a whole, and not just to advance their own agendas. Or going into a court with a kind of anti-Sentinel initiative and how the legal status of mutantkind can make things complex. Are they human or are they something else under the law? If so, do Human Rights laws apply to them? I'd like to build a whole huge plot over this narrative. Not in a boring, overloaded and wordy way, but in a dynamic, explosive and symbolic one. There's a fine line between mindless superhero junk and self-important, pretentious lectures. I'd like to balance that line all the time. That's kind of my motto. I want plots that are both reflective and relatable, and at the same time wonderful and exciting.
