Personally, I don't think we should populate the list entirely with
pre-existing LNH characters.  Actually, I don't think we should decide
on a specific list yet - let people bring in the characters they think
are cool, you know? - but I do think that the new/old character ratio
should be about 50/50.

...I like this.  Even if we don't have this as the main story, I'd
like to have it in the backstory.

Yeah, but the X-Men are themselves weird.  They're part superhero
team, part private army, and part halfway home for troubled mutants.

Personally, I don't think we should focus on the origins of the team/
world.  I think having one of the issues be an Action Comics-esque
focus on history is enough.

I disagree; I don't think we should just focus on the first few
writers that express interest, and if the universe is going to be a
going concern, we should have as many people as possible doing things
they want to continue doing.  Honestly, I don't think most of this
really *needs* a lot of planning, not if it's not going to just be a
single unified story.
