As far as Marvel Girl incarnations, I think I liked Davis' HOM outfit best... midrifts are so skank. The bob had to go though, I think Ray (finally) needs to grow her hair out... I'd like something along the lines of Ryan's Cable run hair with the Davis dress best I think, providing she's to return to the X-Men as "Marvel Girl".
ZOMG... I'd pay gobs of cash-money to get Ray+Amara versus Selene again! :D
Hurray! Ray has her own thread!
I liked the mullet (at least, I did back in the 80s).
R'Chel is my favourite incarnation! Never have I LOLLED so at a comic.
So if, we could stick Ray on an X-team next summer, what would everyone prefer? Ellis' more widescreen epic Astonishing (likely with Scott, Emma, Logan and/or Kitty)? Cornell's more sci-fi humorous Excalibur (likely with Brian and Wisdom)? Carey's... uh... possibly happening X-Force (hopefully with Nathan and Rogue)? Or should we throw her back to Brubaker (at least she'd be with Wallpapercrawler)?
I'd stick her with Ellis since he's probably going to get Nightcrawler and keep Scott and Emma so there is more history for her there. Also, if Kitty dies then it'd serve to replace her in the role of the anti-Emma chick which is almost a requisite these days and if Kitty doesn't die, well then there's even more of a reunion factor. He also seems to be aiming for something more edgy and less retro, which would suit Rachel way more than Brubaker.
No opinion on Cornell since I haven't read his stuff.

I'd prefer Rachel to be in Carey's book, whatever that is. My guess that it's going to be X-Force, and the sort of young rebels of the X-Men, so that would work for her.
Maybe eventually she could turn up in Astonishing (I hope that there are more guest appearances by the rest of the X-Men in Ellis' run), but I'm hoping Carey can rehab her character first. Although I would like Rachel to still be best friends with Kitty, I'd rather not have Astonishing be more of Rachel vs Emma.
