    OK so keeping in mind the upcoming New Mutants movie,it feels like it's time for another New Mutants ongoing. Most of the characters from the New Mutants are missing from the x-books these days. Magik had been featured for a while, and there have been cameos by Moonstar and Cannonball and Sunspot have been in some Avengers books which is not the same. I've seen quite a few posters on other sites mention how they want Al Ewing to be the writer. I can't say I agree or disagree. I haven't been a fan of USAvengers and really have not read it. I've only read a little bit of the Ultimates but dropped it pretty quickly . Seems like Keiron Gillen would be a good fit though and so would Peter David or Mike Carey. Even Brian Wood and Kyle/Yost would seem like a decent fit too. Aside from best fit as for as a writer..... I think a distinct mission statement is important, something that distinguishes the book from other ones.

    All that said.....

    Who would you want in the team?

    Who should be the writer?

    What should be the team premise or mission statement?

    It would be nice to see the original New Mutants return. Since this is going to be Fox and not the MCU, they will probably wait to see how successful the movie is before they capitalize on it, much like the did with Logan.

    Look at how small the words

    I think Zeb Wells did a good job on reassembling the New Mutants in a logical way without it being distracting in way of "wow we're all here to fight some old school foe from our good ol times even when non of characters make sense to be here at all but still, convenience and stuff" so to me as long as there's a logically acceptable reunion stands at the core of this gathering (and subsequently good story as well duh) I don't think any of us can oppose this.

    I don't know what circumstances would bring them back together. They're also too old and experienced to be in a book titled 'New Mutants'. I can maybe see Magik, Cannonball, Karma, Dani, Doug, and Warlock getting back together. Sunspot is doing his own thing. Wolfsbane is a mess these days, and she just received a weird secondary mutation in X-Men Blue. No thanks.

    Not sure what the team would even do. My expectations for modern superhero comics are so low. They could do some shitty arc with Arcade and Impossible Man for all I care. Give it some decent art and character interactions and I'd be satisfied.

    Yeah...not campaigning for a title or team name to be New Mutants, I was more or less talking about the characters from the original series, which is why I mentioned the movie. If they are to be a team they could be called whatever, that really wasn't the point. Seems like people are getting hung up on that but I just couldn't list them all by name in the title of the thread, so what I'm talking about is the characters from the New Mutants books.

    I liked how in Zeb Well's New Mutants run, they were always only referred to as and treated like a team of X-Men. I don't mind the book being called "New Mutants" as long as they reunite the old line-up, but they shouldn't be treated as such.

    The characters from the original New Mutants should be nowhere near the X-Men books unless they are going to be he X-Men. A detail I have actually been wishing for for years actually.

    The arc of characters like Sunspot and Cannonball has kind of been distilled anyways, they started off in the New Mutants as training to be the next generation of X-Men, then, later, in X-Force, they trained to be more militant as Cable thought the foreseeable future or mutants would have been more rigorous than anything the X-Men had trained for...and the end of result of all this training is being dude bros who are also part time Avengers...well, at least Bobby became the president of AIM or whatever.

    You know what, I can agree that being called New Mutants at this point is quite sad.

    USAvengers sucks hard, and so did the previous version New Avengers or something. It is one of the worst Marvel books out at the moment. Even Secret Empire tie-ins are awful. Everything about that team and new AIM served its purpose with Hickman's story. I simply hate it, can't really convey how shit that book is. Good rant.

    OT, New Mutants ongoing would be good so long as it is nothing like/has nothing to do with USAvengers.

    Uncanny X men :-p DO IT, Make Cannonball Lead the uncanny X men.

    Make them a pseudo version of X factor, maybe backed by the government due to Cannonball and Sunspots new Avenger ties, an All Mutant Team to deal with mutant issues.

    Cannonball leader, Karma, Dani, I'd prolly stretch out after that though add like some other X men that need attention Chamber, Blink, Rockslide maybe idc hellion and surge im open for suggestions any that arent getting proper attention while Marvel does this whole redo of the O10 (original 10 you know original 5 + Claremonts Giant Sized new x men Storm, Wolverine, Kitty, Colossus, and Nightcrawler) Maybe Maddox (he might be dead though im really behind on stuff) but yea and if they can think of some abstract way to put Ruby Summers in I'd be game for that too
