During their time on the New Mutants, Cannonball shared the role of c-leader of the team. Now, many of us think Dani was a much more natural leader. She took to it better. But Sam was always the heart...and seemed more likable and motivational.
Additionally, there always seemed to be the possibility of romance between the two. However, for whatever reason, it remained just that: a possibility. Dani had tension with James. Sam had to deal with Rahne's crush and then found Lila. And ultimately Dani was lost to Asgard and things have never really been the same since.
Who do you think is/was the better leader? And would you have liked to see (or would you like to see) a romance develop between the two?
