a little challenge. . . .
- It occurred to me that while there has been a decent
amount of fanfic written which features the students
at Xavier's mansion, most of it tends to involve the
same small group: Rogue (of course), Kitty, Jubilee,
Bobby, St. John (and sometimes Gambit and Nightcrawler
as an introduced character who was not in the film).
Yet in the film, we saw several other recognizable
from comic canon students. Of those, I think I've
seen only Peter and/or Ilyana Rasputin appear, and
that in only a few stories.
So, my challenge is this: write a story of any type
which features prominently at least one of the OTHER
known students whom we saw in the film. Any of the
known favorites can be present, and the story can be a
romance, vignette, action-adventure....whatever, but
the other character(s) should be major players. Below
is a list of some of the ones I recognized (and the
scene where they appear):
--Neal Sharra (Thunderbird III): talking to Bobby in
the hallway about Rogue
--Dani Moonstar (Mirage): professor's office, physics
lesson, possibly in the garage as well for the
--Peter Rasputin (Colossus): VERY brief spot, kid
drawing by the fountain, maybe in the motorbike
--Fred Dukes (Blob): obviously overweight kid standing
in the door when Rogue interrupts Logan's nightmare,
--Pietro Maximoff ? (Quicksilver): fast kid on the
ballcourt, kid in the window watching the Blackbird
--John (or Jimmy) Proudstar (original Thunderbird, or
if Jimmy, Warpath): Indian boy standing behind
Maximoff, watching the Blackbird take off
Those are the ones I spotted. Yes, like St. John,
both Dukes and Maximoff were "bad guys" at least for a
while in the comics. And yes, Maximoff is Magneto's
son. (THAT'S fodder for a story!) Also, if Peter
Rasputin is around, his sister Ilyana (Magick) might
be, too, and if Pietro M. is around, so is his sister,
Wanda (Scarlet Witch).
For information about any or all of these characters
from the comic, you can find it here:
Happy storytelling! :-)

not among the students. :-) (There were questions
about the blue-haired student as well.) The kid on
the ballcourt could also be Multiple Man.
Anyway, other questions about the challenge and the
kids involved should go to:
