Let's start with the simple one. Teenage Negasonic Warhead, or whatever her name is... it's not too unplausible to think her mutant power is to make her dreams come true, after all, she dreamt all of Genosha was going to die and they did, now she seems to have dreamt herself back to life and well... she is alive. Shaw... he recovered pretty quickly it seems... I have a strong feeling Whedon has no clue about the latest Hellfire Club storyline in Uncanny, which can certainly be a cause for headaches in future issues. Shaw says in 13 that the HC has turned into a glorified Strip joint... and that is no longer the case. It was so during Morrison's run, but Claremont fixed that stupid senseless story and brought back the Inner Circle... wonder if someone will point that out to him. Anyway, Shaw does have a reason to want to get back to the X-Men... but thse aren't the X-Men he should be mad at... Cassandra... GODDESS!!! How can Cassandra Nova be there, in her old body, while Ernst is still in the mansion?? This is totally mind-boggling. I do like the fact that SHE was responsible for getting Emma to Genosha (that was never explained in the first place) and why she created herself such a weird secondary mutation (another unexplained mistake). But now?? What is she doing there?? And... wasn't Carter's imaginary friend Cassandra?? I mean, how many bodyless female entities live in the X-Mansion?? I so thought it was Cassandra, especially because the twinkling eyes had wrinkles all around. There is also the matter of the body. Hank and Scott "saved" Cassandra's body in X-Men 155-156, so is that this Cassandra? Are there two Cassandras?? One in Ernst body and the other one back in her old body and evil?? Is it a mistery or a screw up?? The Mistery Woman... while all senses say "Danger Will Robinson, Jean Grey is back amongst us", I can't believe it is her. It would be too much of a low blow for someone like Whedon to do it. If he did he will be remembered as the guy who brought dead characters back and nothing else. Now, what do we know about this woman? First, she is a she, second, she is the one responsible for the group to gather, third, Shaw referred to herself as perfection, fourth, she has a white glove. The white glove can help us think it's not Jean, cause she never used white gloves. It can also make us think it's a former White Queen... and there is only one who fits that bill, Adrienne Frost. More and more so I believe it is. What if Emma didn't kill her? What if she just made everyone believe she did with her telepathy? Would Xavier have allowed her to teach at his school if she had? Adrienne Frost would be a great choice for this mistery character, the older Frost, manipulating the youngest... I kinda like it. Another person that comes to mind... is Madelyne Pryor. She knows Summers, perhaps even better than Jean, so she could truly understand why Emma loves him. And it would be so totally cool is Maddie made a comeback. She should've been one of the greatest X-Villains, but she was so easily dismissed after Inferno. And then of course there is the matter of her incestuous relationship with Nate Grey... goddess I don't even want to remember that. Another character that could be great in this guise would be Sage. I mean, this character gathered this team, she knows things Cassandra doesn't, she's "perfect", it could easily be Sage, only that Sage is in Excalibur, so it can't be her... but she would fit so nicely... So, my choices are either Adrienne Frost or Madelyne Pryor, what do YOU think?
