    Indra and Thunderbird III lol. Maybe that's where the rumour about him started. But yes X-Men are in desperate need of more Indians if they want to seem even somewhat representative of the world makeup so this is a nice step.

    Yeah he was from India, he had a nickname for some as the Delhi Dimwit if memory serves, so yeah Trinary won't be the first or second or third...

    But Gold is penned by a terrible writer who only cares for half of his cast (if that)

    You have a good point. Not only does Jean not have any allies here, but the rest of the cast don't really have any connections either. They feel thrown together. Not saying it can't work, but obviously Taylor will be starting from scratch in terms of developing relationships between characters.

    Every new writer wants to create new mutants and they're almost always forgotten as soon as the writer leaves.
    Editors should be trying to reduce the number of characters in limbo, not the opposite.
    ^^^ This. I appreciate what they're trying to do, but there's already a vast range of diverse and interesting characters that aren't being used. Make use of them. Please.

    Yes, you are correct. There was a sizable racist backlash when he was introduced and a lot of online fans at the time referred to him as the "Delhi Dimwit". It was very disturbing.

    Writers shouldn't be forced to write characters they don't want to write otherwise you end up with the mess X-Men Blue

    Having Namor on this team blew my freaking socks off: bringing him on-board was easily the best thing Matt Fraction did during his run, and I love that he's coming back.

    For the rest of the roster, I like Laura well enough, but Gabby and Nezhno are somewhat unknown quantities to me (as I haven't read much with them in it). Kurt's okay, but I get that he's there for the connection to old-school X-Men.

    I'm always willing to give new mutants the benefit of the doubt, and Trinary looks pretty cool. I want to hear more about her personality and power set.

    If the Gambit rumors are true, then I'm all for his inclusion, too.

    All in all, I like the lineup, but something about it feels a little lacking: it's probably the lack of a long-range energy user. *COUGH*BringBackAdultCyclops*COUGH*
    What can I say but, "I love comics."

    I do not know the criteria that Marvel or Tom Taylor used to form the X-Men Red team. I thought Jean would interact with his older colleagues, but we see a strange team whose only traditional member is Kurt.

    Not what I wanted but I'm cautiously optimistic. The X-Men need new blood, not a constant nostalgia rehash. This is bold but it might actually be good. Looks more intriguing than Gold or Blue
