13 Must Have Characters for a NEW MUTANTS Movie

Post by God Of The Storm on Sat Nov 14, 2009 8:42 pm

The X-Men franchise has been a big moneymaker for Fox and it doesn’t look like it’s slowing down any time soon. Wolverine 2 is a definite and the X-Men: First Class prequel has been mentioned, but it may very well be that the next installment will see today’s mutants toss their caps in the air and graduate while a new class steps in. Will we see the next generation of mutation arrive at the steps of Xavier’s Institute for Higher Learning? Are the New Mutants going to be the next film in the X-Franchise? With teenagers accounting for a large portion of ticket sales, it only makes sense to aim an X-Movie directly at them.

The New Mutants is fondly remembered as the series that took the X-Men back to their roots as a school that trained young mutants in the use of their abilities. A number of different incarnations have graced the pages of the comic book, but which characters should make the cut on the big screen? Here are our picks.

13. Kitty Pryde
Remember when Professor X busted Kitty down from X-Man to New Mutant? Remember how she resented him and the rest of the team as well? Remember when you were a kid and you thought you oughtta be able to do the same things that the adults were allowed to do and it pissed you off when you weren’t? Well, yeah… that’s why Kitty should be in this movie.

Though she isn’t really considered one of the traditional New Mutants, Kitty Pryde did play a fairly large role in X3 so it would be a nice bridge between films. Also, we really want to see a recreation of the famous “Professor Xavier is a jerk!” splash page. In fact, it should probably be the opening scene of the movie.

12. Cannonball
If you’re talking about characters most often associated with the New Mutants, Sam “Cannonball” Guthrie is one of the first names that comes to mind. This lanky Kentuckian was a founding member of the team and a natural born leader, even if he lacked the confidence required to do it.

A big ol’ awkward goofball who lacks both self-esteem and control over his powers? That sounds like a lot like high school to us and a New Mutants movie without Cannonball is like an X-Men movie without the Professor.

11. Danielle Moonstar
Another founding member, Danielle Moonstar was not only a prominent Native American character (Cheyenne, to be specific) and a strong female role model,but she had some sweet powers too!

The ability to create three-dimensional psionic constructs of her enemies’ worst fears would make a great visual on the silver screen and if she ended up using it (whether purposefully or inadvertently) on her teammates, it could be used as a fantastic depiction of the insecurities that come along with being a teenager. But mostly, it would just look really sweet.

10. Sunspot
Because every team needs an impulsive hotshot, because every team needs a powerhouse and because the depiction of Sunspot’s power on the printed page was the coolest thing we’d seen since Colossus. Imagine how awesome that could look on using today’s special effects?
The phrase “Careful Bobby, you’re strong, not invulnerable!” was seen many times throughout the New Mutants’ original run. The idea of a super strong character that can still get the crap kicked out of him is always a good one and since this movie won’t have Wolverine in it, Roberto DaCosta will fill that role nicely.

9. Wolfsbane
It seems like a prerequisite that every X-Movie has a furry character or a shapeshifter–why not combine the two with Rahne Sinclair? The emotional conflict she felt due to her deeply religious upbringing and the feral nature of her powers (and the enjoyment they bring her) will work just as well as a metaphor for burgeoning sexuality on the big screen as it did in the comics. Plus, werewolves are just plain cool and it might get the Twilight crowd on board too.

8. Colossus
What? Colossus was never a member of the New Mutants! That may be true, but he was a junior member of the X-Men in The Last Stand, which makes him a shoe-in as either a trainer/sparring partner for the New Mutants or simply as the guy who appears in a brief cameo to show them around the mansion.

Plus, it sets up the introduction of our next character, and the plot of the movie…

7. Magik
When Peter Raspution’s younger sister Illyana emerges seven years older after disappearing into Limbo, she brings with her a bevy of sorcery skills as well as the Soulsword and an unholy host of demons that will do her bidding. Naturally, Pete brings her to Xavier’s school to better train her to use her abilities for the benefit of both man and mutantkind.

But Xavier’s isn’t the only school where mutant professors are eyeing the latest prospects…


www.mania.com/content_pics/000005/97/54/013c5947abb85168_large.jpg" alt="" />

6. The White Queen
Emma Frost, the Headmistress of the Massachusetts Academy, has her own devious ideas about training the next generation of mutants. Being a member of the Hellfire Club’s Inner Circle, Emma sees Illyana Rasputin and her control over Limbo to be the perfect weapon to enact the culmination of the Clubs centuries-long attempt to dominate the world.

And there’s the basic plot in a nutshell. A group of new mutants enroll at Xavier’s school and enjoy a rivalry with the only other school for mutants in America, but when a crazy girl and a bunch of demons show up, the rivalry starts to lean toward the unhealthy side and the fate of the earth hangs in the balance.


Supporting Characters
It wouldn’t be an X-Movie without tons of cameos and walk-on roles. Here are a few folks we’d like to see pop up on screen for a minute or two:

5. Angel
In the comics, Warren Worthington III was a founding member of the X-Men, but the film franchise has its own continuity. Perhaps Angel could be reintroduced as a potential member of the New Mutants or he might just appear as somebody’s roommate in a scene or two.

www.mania.com/content_pics/000005/99/54/07e17e20506c1230_large.jpg" alt="" />
Much like fellow teammate Sunspot, Magma just looks cool when she’s using her powers. There’s gotta be a Danger Room sequence where this lava-controlling mutant might make a cameo.

www.mania.com/content_pics/000005/00/54/712ba60f9de2f8f4_large.jpg" alt="" />
3. Storm
With Xavier killed off in the last movie, the school has to have a new Headmaster. Or Headmistress… whatever the title, Ororo Munroe is your girl. And Ororo’s close friendship with Kitty will be a major source of strife if she’s the one who has to tell Kitty the bad news about being demoted to the “X-Babies.”

www.mania.com/content_pics/000005/01/54/02393469594c2f49_large.jpg" alt="" />
2. Magneto
If Halle Berry won’t do it (and she likely won’t), maybe the proper path to follow would be the same one we saw in the comics? When Professor X left earth, he left his old pal Magnus in charge of his school, a fact that did not sit well with the original members of the X-Men. Perhaps after losing his powers in X3, Magneto will see the errors of his ways and decide to work towards Xavier’s dream… until, of course, he finds out his powers have returned.

www.mania.com/content_pics/000005/02/54/1f45015dc14bf295_large.jpg" alt="" />
1. Cypher
Poor Doug Ramsey. He had a power that was awesome in the classroom but worthless on the battlefield. But the ability to understand any language, be it human, alien or technological, made him fast friends with fellow computer nerd Kitty Pryde and it made him the only person who truly understood the techno-organic alien known as Warlock.

We’re not suggesting that the New Mutants movie delve into the whole Warlock story, but we are suggesting that the sequel does. And the best way to make it work is to introduce Cypher in the first film and use him as the kid who always gets picked last for the dodgeball team… until New Mutants 2 rolls around and Doug’s true worth is finally revealed.




X-move mush haves.

I think they should start from scratch with only a few "old" members to train the younger X-men
This could be a good chance to bring in people like sinister and his lackeys or even the Brotherhood(X-men EVO version)

I really don't think it's a good idea to have this 'new mutants' movie. I would prefer an "x-factor" movie.
