Marvel wants you to vote for the last member of the new Krakoan X-Men Team
Marvel.com is holding a special election for readers and X-Men fans on their website today! The vote is for the final member of the upcoming X-Men team that Cyclops and Marvel Girl are forming after their discussion with Magneto and Professor X at the end of X-Men # 16.
Here’s what they wrote on the Marvel website regarding the election.
The first-ever X-Men election is here! Starting tomorrow until February 2, fans can vote at Marvel.com/xmenvote to determine the final member of the first X-Men team of the Krakoan era – and one of the most iconic teams in the Marvel Universe.
As revealed in X-MEN #16, Cyclops and Jean Grey shared the need for a new X-Men team to protect the mutant nation of Krakoa and fight on mutantkind’s behalf. A number of nominations have been accepted since then…but the last member of the X-Men is now in YOUR hands!

Too bad this contest of sorts isn’t open to international audience. Would love to see Armor join the main roster. It feels like her “call up” to the main team was hampered by what happened after Joss Whedon left Marvel and the whole Astonishing X-Men book. It’s like she was relegated to the lower teams once more when she proved to be a capable and powerful member. She never did get the same spotlight ever since.
Or I could also go for Polaris whose currently busy over at X-Factor.
