I recently read Zeb Wells' latest CBR interview, and the comment that a certain New Mutant would become huge in not just the X-Books, but the rest of the Marvel Universe, got me thinking: what if it's Magik?
Certainly, of the current team, Illyana is one of the more high-profile members. Her look and power set make her visually appealing and distinct from other magic based characters and mutants. Moreover, given the events in recent New Avengers issues and future solicitations which state that the rules of magic in the Marvel Universe are being rewritten, it sounds like Marvel is leading up to some mystical event at some point -- a perfect opportunity to rope Illyana into the mix!
If that's the case, I can't wait. I'd love to see Magik take on a larger role outside the X-Men, and given her abilities it makes perfect sense for that to happen.
