If she'd have Sent Magma away and had Doug go off to regular school or just generally away so he wasn't around, that'd have been fine. I really enjoy Doug as a character. But the first half a year of her run, it seems like she was building to having Bird Boy join the team, as a Warlock type freak member. Instead, We get a character named Bird Brain that is just annoying as hell but can only talk to Doug. So the Mutants take him back to the isle of Dr. Moreau to have Doug unceremoniously killed. Seriously, the new mutants costumes aren't even a little bullet resistant? Kevlar
was created in the 60's and known about in the 70's, so you'd think that Xavier would have something comparable in the standard issue uniforms he gives to undertrained b-team.
