I honestly think Storm wouldn't be worthy... That being said, I believe Thor Odinson is the better weather manipulator of the two with or without the hammer. Storm is limited by the atmosphere while Thor can conjure lightning even in the vacuum of space which leads me to believe that, while Storm can manipulate weather, Thor can simply create it. Mjolnir will give Storm some added muscle but Thor would still be naturally stronger and more durable than her due to his Asgardian physique.

@mcklayn: @bababoom: Both awesome teams. Especially the New Xmen. What would be your team premises or mission statements

My New X-Men team will have the same premise and mission statement as the New X-Factor team I made up in this thread. Hellion, Surge, Mercury and Rockslide are losing interest with the affairs of the X-Men and wanted to try living on their own. They eventually found out that being trained to be an X-Man doesn't give them a lot of skills to survive in the real world. So, they decided to become Mutants for Hire (similar to Heroes for Hire) and was eventually hired by SHIELD to become the face of their efforts to keep the peace between humans and mutants.

Include Dust and that's definitely the core of the Academy X brand. But after all that recent crap with Laura I'd say she'll have to earn her membership lmao

The OP specified that we can only have 5 in our ideal teams so, I picked the 5 that I liked the most out of the Academy X cast. But, if I can pick more than five, I'll add in Pixie, Loa, Anole and Dust (but, she will only have a supporting role). That's way too much characters though, so, I will make Laura Kinney as a substitute member and give Pixie or Loa a more permanent role.

I like fun threads like this! My X-Franchise idea will have some similarities with OP's, I'd like to think of it as a "Great minds think alike" coincidence. :p I had these ideas floating in my head for a while now so this might be long.

First off, my X-Franchise is set in a world that has a rapidly increasing population of both mutants and inhumans.

  • The terrigen mists has been causing negative effects on mutant-kind creating conflict between the two peoples with mutant-inhuman fights becoming common place. Madripoor became a mutant haven and the mutant populace are now the majority in the island nation with Magneto as its ruler.
  • Massive hate and hysteria against mutant-kind and inhumans alike has surfaced around the world and the Purifier movement has risen as a result. Thousands of people joined the Purifier cause, along with funding donated by multiple high-ranking and affluent individuals from all over the world, the Purifiers now has as much power as a nation.
  • Constant attacks and pressure from the local government caused the Jean Grey School to shut down and it's faculty and student body relocated to a newly established school in Madripoor called the X-Men Mutant Academy. Emma Frost and Mystique are appointed co-headmasters of the school. Due to the threat posed by the inhumans and the ever growing Purifiers, the X-Men Mutant Academy is, essentially, more militant and focuses more on training young mutants to become X-men.
  • The O5 found a way to go back to their timeline but Angel's Black Vortex powers hinders them to use it. Angel's Black Vortex powers turned out to be dangerous as it rips apart his body. It took the combined efforts of the O5 and Adult Angel to put a stop to it but, as a consequence, Teen Angel's psyche was swapped with Adult Angel's. Teen Angel is now in Adult Angel's body along with the Lifeseed and the Black Vortex empowerment. Teen Jean remedied this by transferring Teen Angel's memories, who is in Adult Angel's body, to Adult Angel who is in Teen Angel's body. Being in his adult self's body, Teen Angel decided to stay behind in the current timeline while the rest of the O5 returned to their timeline along with Adult Angel, in Teen Angel's body. (I said Angel way too much in this paragraph. Also, I know the OP said no time travel but, I want the O5 to go home. Angel, Angel, Angel, Angel!)

Now that the setting is, well..., set. Let's get down to the books.

  • Uncanny X-Men, because there should always be an Uncanny series.
    • Team composition: Magneto (as leader), Namor, Emma Frost, Mystique, Beast, Juggernaut and Magik
    • Story: In order to ensure the safety of his people, Magneto struck an alliance with Namor and assembled a team comprised with the ablest mutants he could find. Even though not a mutant, he convinced Juggernaut to join his cause as an alternative to hunting down Cyclops. Wanting to honor her late husband, Charles Xavier, Mystique joined Magneto's X-men. Magneto offered a place for Beast in his X-Men to better use his intellect for the betterment of mutant-kind, eager to redeem himself from his past mistakes, Beast joins Magneto. Emma Frost was given sanctuary in Madripoor and was given a chance to be co-headmaster of the X-Men Mutant Academy along with Mystique. She remembers the events in Genosha that lead to the deaths of her students and swore to never let anything like that happen again so, she found herself in Magneto's X-Men. Knowing that magic is a realm that even he couldn't conquer, Magneto seeked out Magik and convinced her that her skills and abilities are much needed in securing a future for mutant-kind, she reluctantly joins.
    • Purpose: Magneto's X-Men deals with the extreme threats that will affect mutants all over the world whether it's political, super-strong adversaries, strange diseases or magical. (I basically want a team of X-Men comprised of former X-men villains. I'm also excited for the All-New Uncanny X-Men. :D)
  • Cyclops and X-Force, because Cyclops is still right.
    • Team composition: Cyclops (as leader), Angel, Dazzler, Hijack, Tempus, Ruby Summers and Hope Summers
    • Story: Being the symbol of the mutant revolution and, therefore, mutant freedom/pride, Cyclops declined Magneto's offer of sanctuary in Madripoor and opted to use his image to further rally the mutants to take a stand. He assembles a team of X-Force to be able to defend mutants from attacks and to send a message to the enemies of mutant-kind that mutants are capable of fighting back. Angel is left alone by his friends in a different time, in a different body and Laura ended their relationship by stating that she didn't feel the same way about him as she did before, then she simply left ;). As for these reasons, Angel became bitter, wrathful, destructive and without purpose. In a fit of rage, he ousted Anole from Worthington Industries and took full control of his family's company and fortunes once again. Money didn't give him happiness, however, as his lack of purpose continue to plague him. Cyclops came to him to offer him a place in the X-Force and, with nothing else to do, he joined. Dazzler and Hijack joins Cyclops because they believe he's right. Hope Summers, after recovering from a coma, convinced Cyclops to let her join the team despite Cable's protest. Ruby Summers found solace in the idea that this reality's version of her father also leads a mutant revolution and decides to join. Tempus joins after being rescued by Cyclops from his team's first mission against a mutant hating group of inhumans. The inhumans are then revealed to have been experimenting on her powers effectively breaking them. Tempus's powers are now reduced to creating time domes for a short time and could no longer time travel.
    • Purpose: Cyclops' X-Force deals with enemies that Magneto couldn't be seen dealing with as a leader of a nation and in a manner that would get the media's attention.
  • Secret X-Force, a team of killers.
    • Team Composition: Cable (as leader), Psylocke, Domino, Wither (Josh Foley), Deadpool, Forge and Colossus
    • Story: A team of X-Force formed by Cyclops to terminate their enemies with extreme prejudice. After receiving haunting visions of the future, Cable agreed to Cyclops' offer to lead a team of killers against the enemies of mutant-kind. Deadpool joins the team because he wants to hangout with his buddy Cable. Psylocke joins because she feels that her skills would be better utilized in this manner. Domino and Forge joins by virtue of being on the last X-Force team lead by Cable. Josh Foley stopped calling himself Elixir and started calling himself Wither when his powers didn't allow him to heal anyone. Instead, his powers turned to simply creating and spreading diseases which caused him to isolate himself until Cyclops convinced him that his powers could help a lot of people if used on the right people thus, he joins Cable's X-Force. Colossus joins to be with Domino even after Domino warns him about the nature of the team.
    • Purpose: Cable's X-Force deals with plots before they become threats to mutant-kind often by terminating them with the heavy use of firearms, blades and diseases. They remain a secret to their enemies and to the rest of the X-Men.
  • Avenging X-Men, a team of X-Men that are also Avengers.
    • Team Composition: Havok (as leader), Polaris, Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, Smasher (Izzy Kane), Cannonball and Sunspot
    • Story: In response to his brother's revolutionary stance and Magneto's isolationist stance, whom he feels are both causing more damage than good to mutant-kind's image, Havok decided to form a team of X-Men that are also, in effect, Avengers based in New York. Scarlet Witch along with her brother, Quicksilver, joins in order to show everyone that they are unaffiliated with their father in Madripoor and to continue to redeem herself for M-Day. Polaris joins the team because she doesn't like the idea of her father leading the X-Men and feels that this team would do much more good to people regardless of whether they are mutant, human or inhuman. Cannonball and Sunspot joins Havok because of their history of being members of both the X-Men and the Avengers. Smasher joins to be with her husband even though she is not a mutant.
    • Purpose: They are Avengers but, they are also X-Men. Havok's X-Men attempts to show the public that mutants aren't only limited to revolutionaries or isolationists and that mutants can be superheroes too. They tackle threats that affects everyone not just mutants.
  • X-Men Unlimited, a book that features the X-Men Corps, a rotating cast of underused X-Men characters with a few recurring characters.
    • Team Composition: Storm (as Commander-in-Chief) and her staff
      • Jamie Madrox, Layla Miller, Cypher, Warlock, Danger, Broo, the Cuckoos and others
    • Story: Magneto formed the X-Men Corps, an organized paramilitary organization based in Madripoor, to help mutants all over the world and placed Storm as its commander-in-chief. Storm is then in charge of sending squads of X-men to various mission. But, since she enjoys being on the field more, the management side of the job tends to fall to Madrox and the other staff members. (I see it more like the Justice League Unlimited cartoon but with the X-Men.)
    • Purpose: To be able to use many of the underused X-Men and to have many adventures that doesn't exactly have tie-in to a bigger story line.
  • Astonishing X-Men, a team of X-Women.
    • Team Composition: Storm (as leader), Jubilee, Armor, "M", Danielle Moonstar, Rogue and Cipher
    • Story: As the commander-in-chief of the X-Men Corps, Storm was put in-charge to every active X-Man in Madripoor but some missions just need to be dealt with a personal touch. Selene and Madelyne Pryor's new Sisterhood has surfaced and is now posing a threat to the X-Men by conspiring with the Purifiers. Storm assembles her squad of X-Men to confront them.
    • Purpose: Storm's X-Men is a team that is apart of the X-Men Corps and she takes them missions that she doesn't want others to take or to simply have an excuse to get out of the office. (I liked Wood's all-women X-Men)
  • X-Men Mutant Academy, all about the students and teachers.
    • Teaching Staff: Nightcrawler, Northstar, Iceman, Firestar, Karma, Husk, and among others
    • Headmasters: Emma Frost and Mystique
    • Students: Molly Hayes, Eye-boy, Genesis, Oya, Sharkgirl and other unused students created after Schism.
    • Story: The X-Men Mutant Academy opens in Madripoor consisting of the student body and faculty that was formerly at the Jean Grey School. Molly Hayes, after seeing how her presence endanger her friends, found her way to Madripoor and was enrolled to the Academy after a mandate made by Magneto forces all young/new mutants to be required to attend the school.
    • Purpose: There must always be a school themed book that highlights the life of an adolescent mutant. This book will feature a rotating cast of characters, which includes both the faculty and the student body, with Molly Hayes and the headmasters as recurring characters.
  • New X-Factor: Mutants For Hire,no longer the New X-Men.
    • Team Composition: Anole (as leader), Hellion (as field-leader), Surge, Mercury, Loa, Pixie, Rockslide and Wolverine (Laura Kinney) as a reserve member since she usually goes on her solo adventures.
    • Story: After Anole was ousted from his position as C.E.O. of Worthington Industries by Warren Worthington himself, he moved to San Francisco and started up a business called Mutant For Hire because Hero for Hire is already taken. Hearing about Anole's new gig and losing interest with the affairs of the X-Men, Hellion with his new girlfriend, Pixie, along with his pals, Surge, Mercury and Rockslide, decided to join in and moved to San Francisco. After stating that being trained to be an X-Man didn't exactly give them a lot of usable skills out in the real world, Anole reluctantly hires all of them and re-branded his business to Mutants For Hire because Heroes for Hire is already taken. But, because of the rising hate and hysteria towards mutants and inhumans, the business flops and Anole is in the verge of bankruptcy. Luckily for him, Loa, who introduced herself as S.H.I.E.L.D.'s new mutant liaison, offered him and his team a contract to work for S.H.I.E.L.D. Anole jumps to the opportunity in order to avoid being bankrupt, despite Hellion's concerns, and his team became S.H.I.E.L.D.'s mutant response team. Loa formally joins the team as S.H.I.E.L.D.'s representative and suggested a team name change. Stating that the name Mutants For Hire sounds silly, in which everybody agreed much to Anole's dismay, so Pixie recommended that they call themselves the X-Factor. Anole complained that X-Factor is already over used in which Rockslide replies that they could call themselves the New X-Factor instead. Anole lets out a sigh and gave up and renamed the team as the New X-Factor. Mercury is then later revealed to have been keeping contact with Laura and has offered her a place to stay in Anole's home in San Francisco, the place where everyone on the team resides. Laura accepted the offer and moved to San Francisco. Anole welcomes Laura to his home and tells her that she can but is not required to join his team.
    • Purpose: An X-team outside of the main struggles of the X-men, the New X-Factor is a team hired by S.H.I.E.L.D. to give their efforts of keeping the peace between mutants and humans a mutant face. (New X-Men relaunch is my biggest wish for Marvel and this is one of the scenarios that I thought of how it could work.)

@ultimatekey: Technically Danger is only a few years old, so there's that, and since when did Marvel shy away from showing teenagers getting beat up? They blew up a bus filled with children and Hellion lost his hands. Appearing taller and more mature towards a 13-14 year old that has only been recently introduced doesn't exactly indicate that Doug is much older than he is, especially since Doug has been through so much hardship. Personally, I would put Doug around the age of 17-18 but they can always retcon Doug's age by changing how old he is when he died.

@koays: My Mutant God King, I, Dynamite, the Master of Kinetic Blasts, grant you the power to make toilet paper-like material out of thin air and your lower body to be transformed into that of a hen which gives you the ability to lay eggs every morning. You now have five out of the ten powers you could have as our Mutant God King! >:P Also, we must be wary of Bendis's ability to ignore our previously established personality and history.

@ultimatekey: He was actually resurrected as a teenager in Necrosha. He is only treated as an adult because he acts and talks like one. His adolescence is the reason for his scrawnier build compared to the other New Mutants, granted Cannonball and Sunfire are both muscular.

You meant SunSPOT but was this confirmed by anyone like the writers at Marvel? Because in-story, that does not seem to be the case. And I do not believe it. No offense because he seemed to be the same height as everyone else.

Oops... Yeah, I meant Sunspot. I re-read my Necrosha TPB and didn't find any mention of him being young (probably because they are all busy pondering why he's alive). But, just like everyone else, he was resurrected at the same age when he died. His physical appearance also differs depending on the artist. Sometimes he looks like the same age as the rest of the New Mutants vol. 3 team and sometimes he clearly looks like he's younger (the same can be said to Magik).

In this scan he clearly looks younger than the rest and scrawnier.

This is from Necrosha shortly after he was resurrected, you can argue that he looks like an adult but, I'd say he looks like a teenager along with the resurrected Hellions.

Cypher together with Cannonball, Sam clearly looks like an older brother to Doug in the scene.

An instance where Cypher looked the same age as Sunspot which is either due to the artistic style or error.

He still looks younger  and smaller/scrawnier than his teammates in All-New X-Factor.

He's training a junior X-man named Negasonic Teenage Warhead in the field and from there... idk. I don't think it's anything major though since he's not widely promoted like the other characters were. Maybe something will happen to him and NTW would have to team up with Deadpool.

@koays:Mutant God-King, do we really need an army? You're already overpowered with sound and electron manipulation powers together with your electromagnetic optic blasts. Can't you just head to the front and sweep the enemies? I just don't want to end as a casualty since I don't even know how my powers work. Kinetic blasts/manipulation, do I shoot kinetic blasts and then manipulate them? Or, do I need someone else to create the kinetic blast, like when Gambit uses his powers, and then I can manipulate that? Also, how does one manipulate kinetic blasts? What can I make it do? Frankly, my imagination is limited on this one @lerizador. :)
