Hmm. A different lineup for X-men Gold. I have to say I'm not loving the current lineup. Looks like they lost Kitty and Prestige and added Armor(?) and Darwin(?) Im cool with that:)

I'm glad Psylocke is in Astonishing X-Men, because honestly... Blue and Gold seem to be a mess in terms of direction.

As for their crossover, as much as I love that Bunn and Guggenheim chose Mojo as a villain, it would make much more sense to have this crossover by throwing both teams in the DoFP timeline. Most of the Gold team (Rachel, Kitty, Colossus, Storm) have deep ties to it, and the Blue team would get to realize that, as bad as the present time is for mutants, it could be way worse (plus, their mentor Magneto is also tied to this story).

I have pretty much stopped reading all X-Men comics due to boredom with Marvel in general. (I'm more of Image/Vertigo man these days.) I do stay here to get news in hopes that something Marvel-related will actually pique my interest as I do love the X-Men and it's a shame that Marvel keeps the franchise so stagnant and played out with repeating everything from storylines to villains to resurrections of everyone.

Anyway, what my question was before I got on that rant... Do you know if Spiral will be part of this storyline? Is she still "good" following her stint with the X-Force? Also, i wonder if Prestige (lmfao) will address the time when she was a slave for mojo... and more importantly if anyone would even care about that?

Blue is actually amazing. Gold on the other hand is a damn mess.

I knew it was bad idea to make Ororo take orders from Kitten and to name Rachel "Prestige." We all did. Save for Marvel.

I agree Blue is amazing. Gold is boring and messy. Kitty is boring and as a leader kinda blah. I don't care about her relationship with Colossus! Lets move on to really fighting some heavy hitters already
