In Captain Britain (Elizabeth Braddock)'s affiliations, there is the Cable's X-Force missing.
Which brings me to another question : if there was a new X-Force entry, is the team in that 2014 X-Force series, as well as the Cable & X-Force and the 2018 X-Force series the same team than the Cable's Founded X-Force or would it be another teams ?

Thank you very very much for all this answers.
I have one last remark about the JGS employees : according to the OHOTMU X-Men 2005, the School Faculty is an Official Sub-Team.

Whatever, thank you very much for your work and your answers.

I have a question for a potential update and that could answer almost every other questions : are all the mutants fighting alongside Jean in X of Swords Destruction, full X-Men members ?

Totally agree with you, RVcousin!
 

Thank you Rayeye.
I have noticed another missing ad-hoc X-Men team : all the mutants assembled by Beast in Uncanny X-Men #9 and 10 (2018) to face Nate Grey. They were all considered as X-Men according to Beast.

We're in the middle of proofing for King in Black handbook (and some other, non-handbook stuff we've been asked to check over) right now, so I will see about getting answers to the queries above, but it won't be immediately. As such, please feel free to bump the posts to remind me if I've not got back to you in the next week or two.

We have waited 10 years for this Handbook, so don't worry 😉. It's already very nice to have this Handbook and an answer one day.
Good work for the next Handbook and if you need help, I am here.

Hello guys,
First of all and most importantly, thank you, thank you, thank you. 10 years of waiting for an updated roster and 5 years for a X-themed Handbook, I really hope, it's the last time we will have to wait so longly.

It is now my turn to have a lot of questions about the roster :
First of all, what makes a team official, sub-group or unofficial ?
Why is the Red Team considered as an official team, while the Blue team and the London team are only considered as sub-groups and that Magneto's Uncanny X-Men, Havok's Astonishing X-Men and Cyclops's Revolutionary team are not even considered as sub-groups.
Same qestion goes for the following ad-hocs groups, all named X-Men :
1) the First X-Men (from the limited series of that same name)
2) Utopia's Protection Team (all said as X-Men by Cyclops during Second Coming in New Mutants (2009) #14
3) Dead X-Men (from the Chaos War X-Men Limited Series)
4) Jean Grey School Protection X-Men (considered as X-Men by Kitty Pryde in Wolverine & X-Men #14, like Warrior X said earlier today)
5) In Phoenix Resurrection #2, there is X-Men (according to Kitty Pryde), separated in 5 sub-groups (black, silver, gold, yellow and blue)

About the memberships :
1) Lucid is in, as an honorary member, and I'm very happy for that, but why is she officially a member and not Fiz, Deadpool and Energizer, also "honorary members" ?
2) Kid Apocalypse became the X-Men leader during Axis
3) why is Anole still an X-Men-in-Training, since he has graduated in Wolverine & the X-Men #42
4) Alchemy was considered as an X-Man by Cyclops during Death of X (as mentioned by Rayeye)
5) For Krakoa (Hellfire Club's spawn), in Wolverine & the X-Men #3, he asked if he can join the X-Men
6) About Fantomex & EVA, I am agree with you, but apparently the SHIELD isn't according to SHIELD (2014) #1, where Agent Coulson lists the former members of the X-Men and mention Fantomex & EVA.
7) What about more recent Krakoan additions : young Cable (X-Men #1 and 2), Pyro (Aller

I already get my hands on it and I already have questions :
1) where is the sollicitated young Cable
2) when does the coverage stops.
3) why isn't the previous entry listed (just like it was written inside the Empyre Handbook)

I have of course a lot of question about the roster, but I will wait until tomorrow.

I am sad of course that it is delayed again but I understand.

Also un the meantime, I rpopose you guys to share our updated rosters and our whilist for this issue, what do you think ?

About this references of former Handbook entries, can the writers, who knows this forum, confim that there is no missing profiles in our Sightnings thread ?
Also I don't have read it yet in totality but why is Quoi getting a new entry and not an updated one ?
One last point : it's good to get a handbook again, thank you (and I can't wait until the X-Men one scheduled next month)

I'll be curious to see how the "All-New" X-Men ended up getting handled. While it's possible they won't be mentioned at all, I'd be extremely shocked if that happened.

For me they need to be included in the O5 individual entries: after Extermination, it is proved that they are the 616 versions.

Since the solicit mentions it, I think I am okay to say that yes, there is an X-Men team update, and yes, it includes a roster update. You're not wrong to say that it's hard to tell these days who is an X-Man and who is just an ally; there was a lot of checking done to make sure it is official and correct.

OMG ! OMG ! OMG ! 10 years of waiting ! Thank you ! thank you thank you !
I know you can't reveal who's in, but can we get a clue and having the numbers of new members of the main team ?
This would fuel discussion on the forum and help us to wait until the release. Of course if you can't we would understand

I've been reluctant to create threads on online only profiles because they often end up getting heavily edited and/or vaporized in the future; they lack the permanency of physical profiles. But this does raise another point. is anyone on this forum an avid trading card collector? I'm thinking a thread for trading card profiles of characters wouldn't be a bad idea because most of them have stats. Would anyone wish to start such a thread? I don't collect them enough to do this myself.
 

Well, I can help for the beginning, I have a lot of X-men Trading Cards from the 90s.
I just discover in the X-Cutionner's Song TPB that they printed the 12 trading cards from that collection.
I will begin it soon, I just need to finish other projects before and before I begin, it brings me to a question : where does the fake trading cards from Squirrrel-Girl fit (which were full printed in her OGN) ?
