Second page. I love how that second panel's perfectly positioned so that your eyes first go to Spider-Woman, then travels left to cycle through to Iron Man and finally Protector, for that "Who the hell is THAT guy" moment.

Seriously, who IS that guy and why is he so generic-looking? Even down to his name!

I'll add that the staging makes it look like the plane's tail is going right up his butt.

Seriously, don't put something silver in front of the SAME SHADE OF SILVER and expect them to look separate.

I've decided that, in my personal canon, the Protector is a clone, created by the Cube's warden to use as his personal weapon, and the real Noh-Varr escaped with Oubliette and is plotting his return.

I don't know, the second one to Storm almost feels a bit too childish for her. I don't think it's nearly snippy enough for her.

That's what I thought, it seemed like a weak jib towards Storm there. While Storm maintained herself without going to the same level.

Though it has to occurred to me that a majority of X-Men seem to avoid being on teams outside of the X-Men or non-Mutant teams. Which is sad considering for the longest time the X-Men were Xavier's dream of building mutant relations with everyone.

Xaviers team were ALWAYS, effectvely, genetic isolationists.

The Avengers have had more mutant members than the X-Men have had NON mutants, that's for sure; Wanda, Pietro, Hank, Firestar, Justice, Storm (and those are just the ones I remember)

versus Longshot, Shatterstar, Warlock, Kavita Rao, Omega Sentinel, Danger - and those are just the ones I remember :p

Hmmm, I tend to exclude aliens from the normal consideration (That being said, they are hardly best examples of mutant/human cooperation)

Longshot and Shatterstar are both aliens (Longshot being genetically engineered in the Mojoverse, and I lost track of Shatterstar's actual origins after the 27th "shocking reveal" about his past)

Warlock is an alien AND a mutant (His non-aggressive nature has been identified as a mutation on several occasions)

Danger is an alien, sentient alien tech to be sure, but alien.

Dr Rao I always see as more of an allied support staff member than an X-Man proper. Much like Moira McTaggart.

I'm not even sure I ever knew who Omega Sentinel was, so I'll happily give you that one. :)

There are also a lot of aliens and robots, and robot aliens in the Avengers, so for the specific purpose of this comparison of numbers I think it's fair to count 'em.

(I think Danger is more robot - well artificial intelligence - than alien, but now I'm nitpicking)

Moira would be perhaps more on the side of support staff, that's why I didn't mention her, but Kavita as part of the X-Club, is thrust as main character of a few stories along with the others X-scientist, so I feel it's fair to count her.

Omega Sentinel is a human-cyborg (with Sentinel tech) she ended up joining the X-Men during Carey's X-Men run led by Rogue after being helped by Xavier and Magneto during the third Excalibur.

I think Mimic is probably the only human that has been a member of the X-Men not as support member. The rest as you have pointed out have been aliens or hybrids. Well Namor is more a hybrid then a mutant in my mind as a majority of his powers are tied to his Altantean heritage.

Admitly the X-Men is there to help mutants help control their powers which I can understand. So I can understand why the school side would have just mutant members. Still it wouldn't kill them to spend time out of the various X-teams. I still like the X-Men at the end of the day, it just sad that I realized how non-inclusive then tend to be.

Don't forget the Juggernaut who is a magically empowered human. And Fantomex who is an offshoot of the Super Soldier program. Deadpool i don't think is a mutant. And Icon forgot about Wolverine as an Avengers member.

Deadpool is not a mutant. He was a regular human injected with an enhanced version of Wolverine's healing factor.

Hmm, odds on Avengers vs. X-Men throwdown look a lot different with this line-up, what with Thor currently dead and Dr. Strange now in the Defenders.

Iron Fist is also a Defender, and we know that he will taking part in AvX, so I don't see why Strange can't be.

It's kinda weird though since Iron Fist and Dr. Strange are both Defenders with Namor.

It will be interesting to see if the events of Avengers vs X-Men will impact the dynamics of the Defenders.

Yep, end of Fear Itself. To be fair, and this is coming from someone who absolutely hated Fear Itself, they've made no real attempts to make it seem like it's gonna stick. It really only happened so they could introduce a Thor imposter, Tanarus.

There is nothing stopping them from being on multiple teams at once. Wolverine and Spider-Man proved that :P
Also Thing, Beast, Storm and the previously mentioned Namor, Dr Strange and Iron Fist on other teams at the moment. So they manage to juggle the teams somehow.

Just once, when someone's on multiple teams, and those teams clash, I want the character to actually be on both teams at the same time.

Bonus points if no-one notices for awhile.
