When I was at Headless, I worked for Nickelodeon on the short My Friend Pancake. It was very exciting to do key backgrounds. Character Design was done by Maxime Mary and Caroline Lefevre. It was the first time that people from “Nickel Chrome” work together before we create this collective.

———-[UPDATED]———–
- ACADEMY X - faculty cast

school based team, teaching and training the new generation of mutants

ROGUE headmistress (combat teacher)

MAGNETO (survival teacher)

ICEMAN (maths teacher)

FIRESTAR (philosophy and ethics teacher)

GAMBIT (ruse and tactics teacher)

CYPHER (litterature & communication teacher)

SILHOUETTE (history and geopolitics teacher)

- I would re-create the Rogue/Mags/Gambit triangle only to end it all to reveal Rogue doesn’t it any of the two to be happy.

- Maybe keep on building on Firestar’s attraction to Iceman, while he begins to question his own sexuality and see her as a confident more than anything. 

- Cypher be the loner of the group and the narrator. Having been a student that got killed, he would be the most dedicated and caring teacher to his students, to prevent they ever meet a similar fate.

- Firestar would butt head with Magneto often, and argue that she is a survivor too (her battle against cancer, her old team getting killed in Civil War)

- Silhouette would bring a much needed broader perspective and help the students figure out what “role” they want to play

- Firestar and Silhouette would really become close friends and often act as outside points of view on the crazy life of the x-men

- Rogue and Iceman would be drinking buddies

as for their enemies, I would try to avoid having the school attacked too much, and rely more on internal soap dramas and reality based topics like media manipulation, teen suicide, right-wing conservatives, environmental issues, bullying, illiteracy, cultural appropriation, police brutalities.
