I wouldn't even worry about Mimic, since the Exiles version of him seems to have buried the memory of the 616 version (Dark Reign notwithstanding). Changeling helped further one of Xavier's greatest "jerk" moves ever, though, so you might not want to pass him up.
Which was more or less my plan, Mimic position was never too clear, some people consider him an X-man other don't (usually citing that he wasn't a mutant - which was never a issue in my opinion, ask Moira MacTaggart). Same for Changeling, while many authors address him as the first X-man to die on the line of duty his position was never clarified.

I've heard quite a few male geeks in my age group confess to having a comics-crush on her, actually. Which is funny, since green hair rarely has that effect in real life.

About the green hair...while it inspires comic crushes in some fans and as Geekery points out, that rarely translates to real life...look at the girls who go for the "green hair" look in the RW. Poorly done tattoos, hideous wardrobe, usually out of shape (tricep wings are especially unattractive on young people) and a vocabulary that could make a truck driver blush.
Not exactly in the same league as Miss Dane.
On a personal note I don't like green hairs (or generally hairs dyed in unnatural colors) because they really look out of place on many people. For this reason I was never really able to picture how Lorna will look in real life.
By the way Horsenhero you have almost described one of my friends (not to mention the owner of the local comic book store), just soften the angles. Some years ago she dyed her hairs blue, not a smart move since Evangelion was the big hit of the moment, as a consequence we called her Ayanami for a while.

Thanks, I hope that the second team will work out that well.
