New Mutants The movie?!?!

Hell yeah!

A group I joined in FB attached a link on their wall with remarks New Mutant movie. When I opened the link I was so happy to learn that there's a possibility that The New Mutants will be made into a film! .. what is New Mutants you ask? ok firstly here's the link to that article

Now what is The New Mutant? It's a comic book bout a handful of teens with abilities, trained to be a future X-Men member / control their abilities. After X-Men, New Mutants is a comic book I'm looking forward to buy monthly .. I grew up with these two comics..oh and X-Factor, but the first series of X-Factor was only got interesting after Havoc took over.

Well enough bout that, let's talk in detail bout New Mutants..two main characters that should be in the movie are Dani Moonstar and Sam Guthrie (codename Mirage & Cannonball) not just because they're my top 10 X-Peeps..but because they ARE The New Mutants, if I don't see the casting list with Mirage and Cannonball in it I would just die!..DIE! Both at one point or another have been leaders and co-leaders of the team. *Mirage is the current leader now. Both kick ass! (Mirage took down Sugar Man without using any powers! whilst Cannonball took down Gladiator, a very hard man to beat)..seriously these two needs to be in the movie.

Mirage kicking Sugar Man's arse! awesome fight

Cannonball defeating Gladiator I don't have this comic, but it's a pretty well known accomplishment of Sam

Normal standard is normally 5-6 person in a team so I guess we could throw in Roberto DaCosata (Sunspot) in there, he is in fact the strong one in the group, you gotta have at least one strong guy in the group (and flier , but Cannonball already covered that).I don't really like Sunspot but I guess he is needed. Also add in Xi'an Coy Manh (Karma) one of the most unappreciated characters in the X-verse. She's one of the strongest one in the group but rarely got the chance to shine...and want to know something juicier? She doesn't swing the conventional way..if you catch my drift. 2 more? ...erm

Roberto Dacosta codename Sunspot

Karma going up against Cameron Hodge...alone! she lost her leg during this battle

Probably Illyana Rasputin (Magik), she's Colossus lil sister and one of the most layered characters in X-verse. I would love to see her conveyed over to the big screen when she goes full on she-devil mode (she's a demon prodigy)..lastly...probably Doug Ramsey (Cypher), one of the most useless New Mutants cause his power is only language (hard to explain, but by his codename you'd probably understand) ... however he got a pretty sad and gripping send-off during the early New Mutants stint..his character was killed which left the team shaken for a few issues, I was pretty shocked too cause basically the team consist of kids! (yea kids can get killed I know)

Illyana as the Darkchylde

Cypher and *sigh Warlock

BUT knowing how movie screw up the comics history (Angel as a First Class X-men??? WTF!!!!) I don't think they're gonna take all the original New Mutants team as a character for the movie. They're probably gonna add some Generation X brat or Academy X whiners...but if they wanna make it worst..they could probably just put in any core X-men character which haven't been portrayed in the movies in there (Dazzler , Longshot..etc) BUT if they do wanna mix it up, I really hope they'll bring in Sooraya Qadir (Dust) a very well written (positively) Muslim character...she's way cool..and dangerous when she's pissed!

Sooraya Qadir codename Dust

Villains? depends on what they're aiming for..if it's a teen action flick. Hellions are the best bet. The Hellions clash with the New Mutants from time to time. They're like the anti New Mutants from a different school. Now IF they wanted to make something edgier .. Illyana's demon "friends" would make a one hell of a scary villain...or maybe Hela from Asgard, that'd be awesome .. in both story and visual sense..cause Asgard is visually amazing! (as depicted in the comic).Or maybe Cameron Hodge / The Ani-mator , each one of em manage to kill a New Mutant.


And lastly, the story arc, The Fall of the Mutants is a good one..Doug dies in that Arc. The team realizes that they could actually die and it's no fun and games after that. Another good arc is Inferno, where Illyana lost control of her domain (limbo)..the ending of that issue was a nail biter...and the villains in it? problem though..I don't think audience in general would appreciate demons as the main villain...oh oh how bout The Asgard adventures where Dani turned into an evil Valkyrie and was manipulated by Hela to kill Odin..that story arc was fun! you know what...take the Asgard adventure ..puhhleeeeez.I just thought of something today (this blog post was written last week FYI) before posting I remembered a story arch from the Academy X Children titled Childhood's End, that story arc was one amazing story arc and will translate brilliantly to the big screen..the only thing is the antagonist (William Stryker) is already used and died in X2

One of my favourite New Mutants cover, the ending to the Asgard arch

Cypher dies, from Fall of the Mutants

Inferno's ending

Childhood's End arch, reflection on Mercury face shows the blown up bus containing the depowered students, powerful arch this one

Now what I wish they won't do...add Warlock into the line-up...he sucks...and annoying. That's it..that's a very small request ok!..but if the movie is made lah (tgk2 xda..camner? teruk2 aku bebel)...ok that's it...lama tak bebel pasal comic kan..hehe..sekali sekala...allright..happy weekends wonderful peeps! exact sentiment .. vomit!
