The New Mutants summarise their new mission statement of "We clear up the shit other writers left behind/which the X-Men messed up" "Unfinished Business" as they search for Nate "X-Man" Grey... and Doug makes a discovery...

I should add that that IS Victoria Hand in the background and she is her usual charming self (One is almost nostalgic for Gyrich)

Well, the last I heard of Sunspot, Lady Deathstrike did a number on him and he became Famine when Cable ressurected Apocalypse (this kind of thing is why I rarely involve myself with the X-Men anymore), but that was in 2007 or 8.

I actually like the latest iteration in Uncanny X-Force, the Final Horsemen. Completely new characters with diverse backgrounds and back stories.

Though I think that some of them should be switched around based on their powers.

Death creates a variety of diseases depending on the type of metal he touches (He should be pestilence). Famine destroys the flesh of anyone who hears him when he plays his drum (He should be Death). And Pestilence releases a massive horde of beetles from inside of herself and she gains some memories from anyone they eat (She should be Famine).

That was Sunfire. He actually got over the whole servant of Apocalypse thing and stopped being Famine. But he kept the new look (which was just his Age of Apocalypse look anyway) and joined Mr. Sinister's Marauders in time to attack the X-men and attempt to kidnap the Messiah Baby, Hope Summers. He hasn't been seen since the end of Messiah CompleX. (He's probably one of those loose ends the New Mutants should take care of).

Sunspot is one of the original New Mutants. But I can understand the confusion, they're both arrogant X-men who have energy projection powers, flight and Sun in their codenames.

Damn, I always mix them up. House of M looks a little more justified.
I have no idea where Sunspot is.
