These new team member 9 choices remind me of X-men love of baseball...
...Swing and miss.
Earth Mutants: the goto Outer Space Mission Adventurers. Ugh.
Secret X-Men 001 (2022)
SUNSPOT -weird if he's characterized as bitter for not being picked for the Treehouse Team. His chronology/direction (since Marvel Comics #1000-10001?) seems a bit wonky. Beto seems desperately trying to top the MCU Tony Stark persona. He's just story-device to choose this arbitrary hodgepodge attempt-at-fun line-up. This on/off with Deathbird is rushing the DC Bat/Cat dynamic. He actually is a good choice for a covert X-team just not this line-up AND he should probably pick a planet and stick with it.
CANNONBALL - hicksavy sidekick tag-along again. Bullpen 2nd, 3rd?, attempt to recapture his bromance success of the 90s (especially with Teddy/Wiccan actual romance flopping).
BANSHEE -doesn't fit, imo. Doesn't seem the resident foot soldier (air trooper) type. Also, can somebody please explain "Nobody in space can hear you scream" maneuver? Sound vibrations effect still work??? Looked kinda cool but 'uncannily' with the solely Sidri selective surgical striking, too.
FORGE -WHYYYYYYY would he, the Resident Krakoan Biotechxpert, be tied down to this team (not to mention a space mission)
BOOM-BOOM -she should fit. Her fun personality will hopefully continue to make her likable.
ARMOR -another Bullpen attempt to make her a likable heroine in demand. Nothing of her history sticks out for me.
TEMPO -ARGH... she is going to be the BANE of this team and title because of the repeatedly debatable execution/interpretation of her (deus ex tempora) power. Couple examples this ish
MARROW -so many flaws in the Bone Space-armor with design/workability
STRONG GUY -he should fit. His rich backstory will hopefully make him more interesting than a resident big lug (strongman)
Xandra -hmm... is she going to make Xavier's radical telepathy ethics seem tame?!
Deathbird -Cal'syee is the Gyrich of the Shi'ar, eh. Reserving judgement on her uncertain endgame plot here...
Gladiator -facetime cameo cred
Smasher -just a reminder that Sam is off limits to Earthbound titles
Josiah -is a big boy cameo
Delphos & Oracle -intentional cop out excuse why (Krakoa reviled) precogs do not pick winning lottery numbers (almost ever)...
Champagne Robot -RIP
Did you find this premiere to be a home run or foul out or in between?
I miss Dad & Dan.
