    Numbered questions/thoughts! Deadpool would love this.

    1. Why are mutants being hunted again?

"Again" would presume this practice ever stopped. It hasn't. It just typically happens to lone mutants.

    2. Why is Red team hiding underwater?

Because the mansion is in freaking Central Park and they hate it. \:\)

Seriously though, it seems to me there are plenty of alternatives.

    4. Underwater base might explain Namor's involvement. Or Namor's involvement might explain the underwater base. Or unknown plot element #3 might explain the prior two plot elements.

Certainly, but it still leaves questions.

    5. Red Team gives me the vibe of being the new defacto "real" and "official" X-Men. After all, aside from fighting mutant supervillains, the main thing the original X-Men did was rescue new mutants from situations like the one we saw in this preview. All-New Wolverine's presence on the team further indicates its realness and officialness. She is, after all, the alpha snikt character. (Can't believe I just wrote that, but I actually think it's true. Put all the snikts in a room and see who emerges as the leader. My money's on Laura. Even if Logan and Old Man Logan are both there.)

No reason for them being the defacto over Gold... or Astonishing. Mustn't for Astonishing.

City of Heroes is BACK!
