Do we know where Magma, Warlick and Cypher will show up in 2013? Am I the only one that thinks that Sam Or Bobby might not survive their first mission as Avengers?
Guys Im Running a New mutants fan page on facebook! you are all welcome to visit it!
I don't think there's any news on Magma and Warlock. Somebody said something about Cypher being at the school, but I don't know much about that. I wouldn't be surprised if Magma made an appearance in Fearless Defenders.
Hickman is supposed to like Sam and Bobby, so I wouldn't think he'd kill them off quickly.
Favourite characters: Dani Moonstar - Daken - Magik - Shinobi Shaw - Karma - Shatterstar

I think Magma would make a great addition to the Avengers, it's a shame she didn't get picked up as well.
In his Q&A on the Avengers forum, Hickman mentioned that he thought he was already pushing it just by asking for two of the New Mutants. He had considered Dani and Warlock too, but not Magma. She's confirmed to have at least a cameo in Fearless Defenders though, so there might be a home for her yet. She should just room with Shan and replace Warbird on Astonishing. X-Treme X-Men could be fun for her too.
There's literally no way Hickman's ever going to kill Sam and Bobby, nevermind within their first mission. He's already confirmed that he's got plans for them later on (and that there is a likelihood of New Mutants cameos). And Sam and Bobby are in his Five Favorite Mutants of All Time.
Doug and Warlock, I don't know and don't really care. Warlock would be great in GotG though, so maybe he'll show up there?
Doug needs to be moved over to the teaching staff with Kitty, I loved to see the chemistry of their friendship reintroduced and he is literally perfect for that capacity.
Warlock is like an imaginary friend that never left. It's embarrassing for them to still hang out with him.
No, seriously, all jokes aside, why? He's much better equipped and characterized as a scholar/professor, and not a vigilante revolutionary. He'd agree with the methodology of JGS more than Mariko's Weapon X Academy of Badassery, and he'd definitely prefer the JGS staff (Kitty...Psylocke's affiliation). He was Magneto's least favorite student. Illyana never gave a damn about him either way. He was one of the New Mutants Emma didn't particularly covet. Scott send Doug on a veritable suicide mission to the future. I am like, not seeing the rationale behind wanting to put him in Uncanny X-Men at all. I don't think he'd want to join them, and I definitely don't think they'd want him.
And from a completely biased point of view, no that'd suck cause I hate him and it'd make me not buy Uncanny.
And really I would to see the pro-mutants stick together. I would have loved to see Dr Nemsis and Dani Moonstar in the new Uncanny but they're tied up in other books. Doug is free and his powerset will always be a good fix. Biasedly speaking next to Magik he is my favorite New mutants, and I think Bendis could characterize him really well.
