Tired of the same characters as always, the same kind of adventures: Storm, Wolverine, Cyclops, Emma, Jean, Rogue, Gambit, Psyloke, Colossus .... I know that they are the main mutants and much more cool characters and demanded by the public than others, but they are always the same and sometimes they do not advance in his personal plot. I would love to see an All New X-factor with skids, Rusty, Annole,Pixie, Rockslide and Caliban, that will take advantage of characters from oblivion and give freshness to the collections. Look what Peter David did with Guido(Stronguy), from a secondary of just three appearances to a fashionable character in the 90's! You would not like a collection titled, I do not know, MUTANTS, and that it would be dark characters in the world of the X-Men? Or an X-Academy that also includes non-mutant characters? Do not you prefer to take advantage of forgotten characters instead of creating new ones that you also forget in few months?

This is a reason why we need multiple titles, and as many titles as can be supported. If the market can support 15 X-Books, then pump out 15 X-Books. I know the current market can't, but I'm just saying.

Overall, I really don't feel this way. "New" and "different" should only come once in a great while, with things mostly staying consistent. Groups should be primarily of tightly-knit friends/family that are committed to each other in perpetuity. A newbie can join, once every 5 or so years.

Frankly, I don't want a month to ever go by without a team of Storm, Jean (now that she's back), Rogue, and Colossus (from your list) and quite a few other long-time mainstays.

I also think we need a second X-Men team for the second class cool guys, mostly doing their own thing.

I'd like a team of younger mutants doing their own thing, but not in a school setting, sort of like old school X-Force. Just not those O5 teens. Okay, we're getting a roster change, but I only like Polaris on it.

A school can be cool too. Avengers Academy worked, imo.

And then we should probably have a kind of blackops team like X-Force.

Lastly, some other titles that can only barely be called X-Books -- like Excalibur, X-Factor (Investigations), Exiles, etc.
