I'm open to many variations, but:i think a wonderful youth team would be.....
Graymalkin (powers made to be cooler)
Mercury (with more personality)
Hellion (or a resurrected D.J.)
Anole (physically repaired)
Quill (not undead, thank you very much)
Rockslide (or "Bubblegum" lol - brownie points if you get who I mean XD)
Surge (mentally repaired)
Mercury (or dunno, Wallflower or Specter, maybe)
would be very neat, indeed.
As for the whole jew thing - I've been off the board for many moons, but as far as I can tell that recently came out of nowhere and personally, I find it kinda annoying to label random kids jewish - only Marvel (and inofficially N&C IMO) have a say in that matter, but whatever. Then again, that may be the intactivist in me speaking - but it's a fictional universe anyway, so I just like to pretend that the small Jewish uncut movement won over the masses a bit more than a century ago and the crazy American doctors didn't. *lalalaIcan'thearyou*
