Will we get a more stable/permanent X-Men lineup soon? There doesn’t seem to be a well-defined core team at the moment.
Nick Lowe: Derek! You are living in the past! Shake free of thinking of the X-Men as blue and gold teams. Certain books have set teams (“Astonishing X-Men,” “X-Force,” the upcoming “New Mutants”
), but things have changed. The X-Men aren’t strike teams that protect mutants – they’re an army led by a general (Cyclops). He has specific groups that he puts together for specific tasks and some are more formal than others.
