Fox has announced a potential new direction for its enduring X-Men movie franchise, and it's one that should please a lot of comics fans. The studio has signed a deal with The Fault In Our Stars director Josh Boone to co-write and direct New Mutants, starring a junior team of mutant heroes. Boone will co-write the film with Knate Gwaltney, and X-Men movie stalwarts Simon Kinberg and Laura Shuler-Donner will produce.

The movie will surely draw heavily on the comics, but its cast won't necessarily be limited to characters that served in the original New Mutants line-up, or even in later versions of the team. There are decades of Westchester student mutants to choose from. In order to make the filmmakers' choices a little easier, we want you to pick the characters you'd most like to see on screen.

The Bryan Singer era of X-Men seems to be coming to an end with X-Men: Apocalypse, and the final appearances of Hugh Jackman's Wolverine and Jennifer Lawrence's Mystique. The stars of New Mutants may well be the mutant heroes that stick with us for the next decade, so make your choices wisely!

You can pick up to seven heroes from the list of almost eighty young mutants below. Mutants are listed in alphabetical order by code name (where applicable). The list includes not just New Mutants characters, but almost all the mutant students ever to feature in a significant way, including characters from Generation X, New X-Men, Young X-MenGeneration Hope, and Wolverine And The X-Men. The poll does not include characters introduced in the comics as adults, or characters who have already appeared in the movies!
