    At five they can read and spell basic words, but as someone else pointed out they do still love being read to...

    some new mutants or new x-men maybe?? come on: DUST!! that would also bring topics of religions, other points of view and the role of women in society!

    Dust is an offensive racial parody, and isn't this team about friends?

    Love it.
    I agree there is definitely too much testosterone in most of the lead male characters today. Even Magneto has lost some complexity to his character since Claremont left the first time around. Carey came the closest to recapturing the nuances. I suppose Beast still qualifies as a sensitive male type, though less so these days than when he appeared in X-Factor under Simonson. Memory fails as to when he came out as "gay" as an act of gaining attention from Trish Tilby. Would some of these overly masculine men pull a stunt like that? Granted that example is a bit extreme, it did fit with the direction Beast's character was headed at the time.
    I'm rambling, but what I'm trying to say is that not only were the women strong and empowered and the real stars of Claremont's run on Uncanny, the men too were wonderfully complex and flawed. Muscle bound men like Beast and Colossus were artistic and sensitive, often downplaying their physical strength with their emotional strength.

    I'm feeling the love for Hepzibah. She and Storm shared a very lovely moment under Brubaker. :) I could live with Domino too.

    Believe me, if I'd felt it was the way to go, I would have done it. Thank the goddesses I didn't have to. But don't flatter yourself, you couldn't have stopped me if you tried - Storm

    Great post! Honestly, Gambit is probably the last of that type of X-male, so it's nice that his series showcases that. Asmus is doing the character a lot of favors. The last that we've seen of the thoughtful, poetic, yet strong Colossus persona was in Whedon's Astonishing. What I've read of Forge since he's been back is pretty two dimensional and plays to suit. Astonishing really is the closest thing we have currently to a team of complex, compassionate, non cheesecake X-males, but that book isn't exactly garnering praises from the masses the way this book is. In fact, it's been a complaint by many people that the men are "too soft". which is malarky.

    Dust, absolutely NOT.

    And Domino has her own book. What, everyone gets a double dip?

    Dust would be extremely unwise. It's canon that if Jubilee is allowed in proximity of Dust, the latter will shed her burqua and be irreversibly assimilated into western cultural norms.

    It would be far more interesting if the reverse happened though.

    Love love love that Coipel cover! So pretty. They all look pretty badass too. I really like Psylocke's costume, although I'm not sure why, in a book that is supposedly empowering for women, she's got to have her legs straddling a sword.

    Great cast too, but I'd like at least ONE youngster to be there. Blindfold? Armor? Surge? They'd be cool.
