    Default Northstar in X-Men: Destiny

    (I could have sworn I posted this link here previously, but then I went looking and no dice. So, at the risk of redundancy...)

    Northstar is going to be one of the non-playable characters in the X-Men: Destiny console game.



    Nrama: Can you give us an example of a character that people who've only seen the X-Men in other mediums might not know, and why you chose that character?


    Heder: Well in our roster we try to represent the characters that everyone knows and loves, and wouldn't be an X-Men game without them, like Wolverine, Gambit, Nightcrawler, Colossus. But we do have some characters in the game that to my knowledge are making their video game debut. Characters like Surge and Northstar, for example haven't gotten a lot of screentime in the past and we're excited to bring them to a game for the first time.


    Nrama: So what was it about a character like Northstar for example that made him essential for this game?


    Heder: Northstar is interesting, as he represents another evolution of where the series has gone in terms of diversity. [Newsarama Note: Northstar is both openly gay and... CANADIAN] So we wanted to make sure we had him.
    I was cautiously hopeful -- Mike Carey's on story duties, after all -- but when I saw Nightcrawler's costume, my sense of optimism went to hide under the bed. I'll wait for the reviews.

    Cool! I'm excited to see characters getting attention outside the comics who aren't from one of the classic X-Men teams. Honestly, I'm so sick of most of the classic X-men at this point. XD

    Jean-Paul's character bio is up at the X-men Destiny site.

    Northstar

    Faction: X-Men

    Superhuman speed. Renaissance man. Kind of into himself. Choosing to leave the X-Men after Bastion killed Professor X and the Purifiers destroyed the school, Northstar traveled the world expecting to clear his head and hopefully enlighten his chaotic mind. Instead, city by city, Jean-Paul witnessed acts of prejudice against mutants. Invited by Emma Frost, Northstar came to the peace rally to find the inner calm that eludes him.
    I notice they haven't mentioned gay or Canada or Alpha Flight... grumble, grumble, grumble...

    Not sure that I like the look of the costume. Or maybe it is just the graphics.

    So...Like many of his recent appearances in X-Men...Will Jean Paul be knocked out in the first few minutes?

    Jeffries was going to be in it, but he got knocked out before the start.

    Not that I don't believe you Phil, but where did you learn that Jeffries was planned?

    Kinda makes sense, since Forge is a major character, and they're more or less the same guy, just curious is all.

    SB, I'm thinking that was humour by Phil, not seriousness. (Think Monty Python)
