Default X-MEN:RED upcoming title

https://www.newsarama.com/37291-x-men-red.html

This title is focusing on a team led by Jean Grey. This could be interesting with her coming back. I do wonder who the members of the team will be though. I have been enjoying both X-Men:Gold and X-Men:Blue a lot so I do hope that this title is good.

My only request is to give Jean a code name and a good costume. I see nothing wrong with her still using the Phoenix name. The costume that she is wearing on the link is pretty ugly.


Hoping for a Phase 6 with FS Statues of the following

Nighthawk
Moondragon
Mantis
Polaris and Havok (new ones need to be made because the Bowen ones are too expensive now)
The Red Guardian (The Defenders member-this one is a longshot)
and a REALLY GOOD Phoenix Museum Pose statue

My main thing with Jean is...stop killing her and bringing her back. It's what 3 or 4 times now?

I agree with that point as well. Even though I read Grant Morrison's X-Men run and it was very different the fact he ended it with Jean Grey dying was a major letdown (been there, done that kind of thing).

Also, the Phoenix outfit is probably one of the best Dave Cockrum costume designs ever (I am assuming he did design the outfit). Let her wear that one.

Is the “young” Jean still around? I’ll be more interested in the X-Men again once all the clutter has been taken care of.

the time displaced young X-Men are still around in X-Men -Blue. The title is actually very good even though I am not a huge fan of them being around. I do think it is time though to send them back to their own world or time. You could still do a book with them but it would just take place on a parallel earth.

I don't know if you are aware, but she was also "resurrected" in Fraction's X-Men run. If I remember correctly she "died" immediately, but it was so fast you didn't realize what was going on, and done so poorly that when it was done you just asked "WTF?"

Agreed her green Phoenix costume is fantastic and I believe Cockrum did design it. Still waiting for a Bowen museum statue in that costume. Sigh...

I know in the X-Men: Phoenix Endsong mini series she came back and once again tried to have Wolverine kill her but could not kill her but did weaken her. It has been a few years since I read Morrison's run but I never understood how Wolverine could kill her when Phoenix could have destroyed the universe.

the line up has been revealed. I am going to give it a shot even though I would have liked more established mutants. Another article on CBR said that there is one more fan favorite mutant that will join in the first story arc (Dazzler, Havok, Polaris, a former New Mutant or Generation X member?)

Funny how the keep re-telling the same stories over and over. I find that generally the first is the best.
