Yeah, Outback/Mojoverse Dazzler seems the most likely, especially since that was the costume she wore in the arcade game. It's also easy to make.

Dazzler's got a ton of costumes, though, so they might surprise by tossing in something more recent.

If they keep going with the X-Men Legends waves, I wouldn't be surprised to see a Longshot. Wave 2's focusing on some heavily fan-requested figures. A Longshot redo, or his modern look, seems like it's going to end up with a lot of requests from X-fans now that some of the really long-awaited/never-before-made ones are hitting. His ToyBiz ML hasn't aged well at all.

As excited as I am to get a Rogue figure, I really want one of her more modern looks. Maybe they'll finally put out that canceled one from a couple years back.

Anything but the current 'look' Dazzler has. Not sure what happened to the X-men comics, but as a reader of them for 20+ (X-Factor, Excalibur, etc.) I've found the last few years of the books to be almost impenetrable as a reader. They just feel like a mess of glut. Someone needs to streamline back to the X-men, bring back Charles Xavier, get rid of these stupid teenage X-men, and get back to the core groups. Wolverine is now an old man from the future. Jean Grey is a teenager. Last I saw Jubilee was a vampire. WTH happened to these books? I haven't found them remotely interesting since before Schism. They're a mess and it's a shame Marvel's once flagship books have fallen so far.

Honestly, the problem with the X-Men is what made them so vital to people to begin with: they were the purest version of spandex soap opera you could read. But TV soap operas don't need to adhere to a central conceit, unless it's Dark Shadows or something - they can just keep going and twisting and adding new characters and bringing back old. And they're self-contained.

The best thing Marvel could do is what they seem to be working towards right now: incorporating the X-Men characters into all the other teams and bringing the whole "Hated and Feared" thing to a conclusion. I know it won't be permanent, but it's a nice solution to an old concept and a franchise that's done everything you could possibly do with it.

I don't know. Deadpool and Cable as Avengers is rather jarring to me. Especially, Deadpool. I know Bendis kind of wrecked the Avengers when he put Wolverine on the team, but Logan was at least part of a team of 'good guys'. Deadpool is a mercenary. I don't know. I've not cared for the whole Uncanny Avengers idea.

That's why I don't care much about Marvel's team and I felt that Deadpool and Cable are so misplaced as members of the Avengers team and I really do not care for Wolverine to be on that team either.

To me, the Team Concepts of the Marvel Universe doesn't do me any Justice to read and all that and that's why the only Team that Wolverine should be on is the X-Men.

Wolverine once was a member of Alpha Flight and I have mixed feelings about that too and more I see that during that run - it's started to bother me a bit. That's why I'm so turned off by Marvel Comics these days.
