In celebration of the arrival of "Professor" Xavier Paul to the team, I started thinking about how this current team stacks up to his previous team of mutants. Nerdiness ensues after the jump
Joey Votto is Wolverine: Canadian, virtually indestructable and the best he is at what he does, bub.
Scott Rolen is Cyclops: The All-American field leader.
Jay Bruce is Angel: Young, rich with talent and the potential to fly high but faces terrible stretches of being dead, evil, etc.
Chris Heisey is Beast: Hairy, acrobatic in the outfield and likes to experiment with his swing.
Drew Stubbs is Havoc: Self-explanatory
Brandon Phillips is Nightcrawler: A religious young man able to seemingly teleport into the hole to make a play. BAMF! A Bad-Ass Mother Fielder
Devin Mesoraco is Iceman: Young and energetic member of the team with the icy stare.
Ryan Hanigan is Banshee: Just look at him.
Johnny Cueto is Bishop: Crazy hair and comes from a future where a 2.28 ERA is commonplace.
Mike Leake is Gambit: A member of the Thieves Guild who throws things.
Bronson Arroyo is Rogue: A weird relationship with Gambit, bad hair, and you probably don't want to come into any skin-to-skin contact for health reasons.
Miguel Cairo is Storm: Cairo is in Africa. Also, the other leader (with Cyclops/Rolen) in the clubhouse. Cairo should grow a sweet mohawk and beat up Rolen to assume leadership of the team like Storm did to Cyclops that one time in the '80s.
Mat Latos is Jubilee: Young and petulant. Fond of the phrase "Does a mall-babe eat chili fries?"
Aroldis Chapman is Colossus: Indestructable arm and the heart of an artist/amatuer acrobat that escaped a tough life in a Communist country.
Sam Lecure is Forge: Um...mustache?
Wilson Valdez is Lockheed: I got nothing.
That's all I got - who am I missing or messing up here?
