"For me, the biggest challenge was limiting the number of X-Men on the team. There are so many great X-characters; it was honestly very difficult to narrow it down to a manageable size.

But it all came down to creating a team that felt classic and iconic but also fresh and new at the same time. There are elements of the roster that harken back to the classic [Chris] Claremont/[John] Byrne years, but also new developments with certain characters, like Old Man Logan and young Jean Grey that make these old relationships totally new again.

Zombies... Miracleman killing his former sidekick... Identity Crisis... it's been a fairly harrowing series of postings lately...

Barr or himself, amongst others) produces awesome results. I've posted New Mutants Annual #2 in the past, as well as X-Men Annual #10, but this remains a favourite)



Thos who saw my post earlier in the week will recognise the green guy, anyone who knows the New Mutants will know who the other guy is.

The athleticism of Nightwing or Nightcrawler would be fun, though technically neither of those are powers, but skills they work very, very hard to perfect and I'm way too lazy to be able to keep that sort of physique up..

Teleportation would be pretty damned awesone, flight would be nearly as great and telekinesis can be amazingly versatile...

However... there are two powers I'd want to possess, and they reside in the same body...

Doug Ramsey always had, in his old appearance, two distinct super-powers, one was omnilingualism, and the other was that rarest of gifts;
