As a new X-Men Blue team debuts in issue 25 to deal with the missing former X-Men Blue team.



The team will consist of Polaris, Xorn, Daken (a one time "Dark Wolverine"), Jimmy Hudson (the second Wolverine in the Ultimate Universe IIRC and looking like he's a Nightwing cosplayer), the Bloodstorm (Vampire Storm) and Gazing Nightshade (who might be new?)







EMMA FROST, MISS SINISTER and BASTION have formed an unholy alliance, and now is the time for them to unleash Project: Mothervine!

Emma being a villain is bad enough, but teaming with mutant hater Bastion? And I'm scared to even ask what Mothervine is... Do they mean a maternal Wolverinr, or a Wolverine with a moth motif?

By the by, this Bloodstorm is not the same one as from Mutant X (she's younger for one thing, and even had a bit of a thing going on with Tyke).

Also I initially thought that Gazing Nightshade was Blindfold.

Having two Wolverine types on the same team seems kind've redundant.

Weapon X, X-Force, and Wolverines were/are all books specifically dedicated to entire teams of Wolverine types. So its not really a new thing.

X-men Red has both Laura and Gabby on the roster.

Besides this team in Blue probably isn't permanent.

The whole "Xorn is Magneto pretending to be Xorn and he has a heroic brother" is such a clusterfuck but I guess Morrison has no one to blame him but himself for how he handled Mags then.

Wasn't there a brother thrown in there for good measure?

It would have been so easy to fix during secret invasion: " Skrulls had someone ready to impersonate Magneto, but he supposedly died in Genosha, so they did a field-install of Xorn over the Magneto imprint. And replaced Xorn. Magneto imprint came loose..."

Mothervine is a thing from the Ultimate Universe.
Something about artificially creating mutants, involving Magda Lensherr being a mad scientist.

Ms. Sinister got a few survivors from the Ultimate Universe and experimented on them a little (since Ultimate Mutants are different from regular Mutants).

Gazing Nightshade showed up previously in Blue. So, new-ish (still has that New Character Smell.)

Bastion survived being destroyed back in Second Coming, but has now dedicated himself to saving mutantkind... so he can destroy them later (presumably via cruel irony).

Bar Dakken, this isn't a terrible line up (especially as it's likely to be temporary).

But Dakken falls into that same box for me as Moonstone and Mystique in that you wonder why anyone would ever work with them willingly ever again.

Mystique's okay as long as her interests line up with yours...and only that far.

I really, really hate Emma backsliding into being a villain.
Especially since, all things considered, she was only a bad guy from 1980 (her introduction) to 1994 (start of Generation X), and she was basically a hero or anti-hero ever since, so 1994-2016 (the Death of X storyline)... so 14 years as a villain vs 24 as a heroic type.

Sigh. I hope this turns out to be some sort of spin that ends with her revealing she's working to stop the other two, although since this spins out of her actions during Civil Empire: Weekend at Stevil's.... I doubt it.

The story they also told with her dealing with Scott's death is such a beautiful tragedy that just sticking her back to a random villain is kind of sigh-worthy.

It occasionally seems like Marvel really doesn't believe in redemption/reformation. I think Abe and Melissa are the only two that have really stuck.

I say Void. Cyclops has a sliver of the Void locked up in his bran. Presumably the locks dissolved at the moment of death, and Emma was mindlinked to him...and that's the moment Emma turned villain.

This is one of the most random X-Men teams I've seen in recent history.

Date: 2018-01-29 01:42 am (UTC)
From: [personal profile] long_silence
X-men Red has Jean, Nightcrawler, Namor, Gambit, Wolverine, Honey Badger, Gentle and a new character named Trinary. That's about as random as you can get

At least most of the characters here have already been recurring characters in X-men Blue.

I was happy to get rid of all those redudant All Old X-Men.
But if it's to get a team with two more children of Wolverine, plus another version of Storm... Yeah, no thanks.
There are so many good mutants stuck in the background, it's infuriating that the whole Wolverine family, as well a an alternate version of an already overexposed X-Woman, are the ones who get the spotlights.

The O5 aren't gone just yet. I'm pretty sure that this story with Polaris' team is taking place during the Venom crossovers (Poison X and Venomized). So the O5 are just off in space fighting symbiotes and this is just a temporary team that Lorna recruits in the meantime

My guess is that both Gold and Blue are going to get relaunched after some yet to be announced event that ends with the O5 going back to their time for good.

Not sure what's worse; that there are two Wolverines or that they're Daken and Jimmy.

Just kidding, obliviously its that Emma Frost is working with Sinister and Bastion.

How did Storm become a vampire? Jubilee bite her or something?

I am SO lost with the X-Men politics these days.
