Seriously does the leadership thing really mean anything?? LOL. Whether a character leads or not does not necessarily make good characterization. The stories and the way the character is written should be what matters most. Whether Rogue leads or not does not diminish her character in any way. She is a badass no matter what and a great X-Men to boot.

This is the beginning of the article:
Marvel Comics' premier team of mutant heroes may be known as the X-Men, but female characters have been an important part of the team since its inception. During the legendary "X-Men" run of writer Chris Claremont the team's ranks became even more complex and compelling thanks to the introduction of strong female characters like Storm, Rogue, Psylocke, Kitty Pryde, Jubilee and Rachel Summers.
This April, those six mutants will join forces to become the protagonists in a new volume of "X-Men" by writer Brian Wood and artist Olivier Coipel. Comic Book Resources spoke with Wood about his plans for the new Marvel NOW! series, which include an appearance by the villainous being known as Sublime.
It says 6 mutants, not 5 mutants and a vampire so maybe she does have her powers back vampire/mutant hybrid maybe just a thought.
Besides, her first tenure as leader she did fine (X-men #103). That wasn't her first go around.
By contrast, I do like Valkyrie (and Thor, and the Loki and Sif-centric runs on JiM), so Fearless Defenders is on my list, although I'm not sold yet on the interior art. YA is after FD on my list solely because I'm not entirely sold yet on Gillen's take on the characters (or maybe I just prefer his actual comics work to his interviews... I'm not sure).
I got a question, who's leading Uncanny X-Force.
The more I read and hear about this title the more I get the vibe it will be for the X-Men what the Avengers movie was for the Marvel cinematic universe.
And from now on I am not reading any interviews or solicits about it, because basicly the whole first issue has been spoiled and I am just too damn interested in it to ruin it for myself.
Taking bets on how soon Wolverine shows up on the cover.
Great article. I really like how Wood seems to be approaching this book. I'm also glad Jubilee is coming back into the picture. She has been MIA since the arc with Lord Deathstrike during Gischler's run. I'm probably in the minority, but I really liked Jubilee becoming a vampire. I think it did wonders for her character. I hope that continues under Wood. All the other X-women he's mentioned (except for maybe Rachel) have had plenty of material on them. Jubilee hasn't. She sat out AvX and most of the aftermath. I really want to see her rise to the occasion again like she did during Gischler's adjectiveless run. I also hope that this book is more linked in with the rest of the X-books. I've noticed that books that are regularly cut off from the rest of the X-books are often the first to get canceled prematurely.

why is jubilee shooting sparks on that alternate cover.. has she regained her real powers again? is she still a vampire?
