Favorite X-Men

Recommended Posts

Are we talking current team or anyone who's been a member?

 

It's hard to say really. I think everyone has such different personalities at times each has been a favorite.

 

I'll say Nightcrawler. On the outside he's a monster, but yet on the inside he's caring and warm. He's a man of god that looks like a devil. No matter what he's been through he manages to keep the faith and forgive those who do him and his kind wrong. He'll fight to survive, but he won't kill. He might not be the heart of the team, but he's at least it's conscience.

7. Havock - Just proves that Scott got the worst genes in his family.

 

6. Multiple Man - How can you not like this guy, er, um, these guys. Guy? Guys?

 

5. Gabriel Summers/Vulcan - Yeah, he was only a member of the X-Men for his first mission, but his character is so much cooler than Scott.

 

4. Guido/Strong Guy - My favorite of all the muscle bound mutants. He's just so layed back.

 

3. Cable - Cyclops son who is infinitely cooler than him.

 

2. Psylocke - My favorite of the telepathic/telekinetic mutants. Wish they'd bring her back into the regular team of X-Men. She's the one I wish would end up with Wolverine. She's his equal. Wolverine only likes Jean because she's a projection of his first love, Rose.

 

1. Wolverine - 'Nuff said, Bub.

Nice name three summers family members.. proves the summers are on the top.. also Nate Grey.. greatest mutant period. but he gave up his life so its kind of cool they kill one of the greatest.. if not greatest mutants.

 

Though I wonder if Cable will ever reach that level.. I hope he does to be honest.

I'll bite:

 

I have several in the top, but my two favorites are Penance and Banshee. They currently are not being used... and well they killed off Banshee, but like his daughter says... he'll be back.

 

I also loved Maggot. I like characters that have unique abilities and or personalities... The under dogs are ussually the coolest... except Beak... I hated Beak...

 

My favorite currently alive character is Angel.

I'll pick a male and a female:

 

Angel - his character has had the most scope, be it solo hero, team player, millionaire playboy, brooding horseman, businessman and teacher (loved the flying lessons during Grant Morrisons run, really grounded despite what was going on!)

 

Psylocke - Telepathic british/asian ninja, body swapping, purple haired and tough as they come. Bring her home!!!

So I would like to know everyones feelings on a subject that has always made me wonder, We all know the whole Cable,and Nate Grey story and I enjoyed the issues in which they went at it, but back to my point I always Felt Nate Grey Was stronger then cable and that is of course due to the fact he never had to use is powers to keep the techno virus in check, but what I want to know from everyone is do you think cables power will be greater then Nates if not already, I feel his powers will become greater at some point as seen in Civil war(which was eh..) I was happy he used is power more then gun slinging, don't get me wrong I love the issues in which him and deadpool are decked to the nines in guns.

Dang. Favorite. That is hard to choose. I know who my favorite lineup was, Storm, Wolverine, Nightcrawler, Collosus, Shadowcat, Rogue, Rachel. It is the team I first got into comics with and has a very diverse background. Plus they each have such a strong connection with eachother. If I had to pick just one, I'd say Rogue. Hoping that Mike Cary will continue to write her as a strong character. A close second and third would be Nightcrawler and Wolverine.

Well Cable did rid himself of the Techno-Virus in Cable #100. From there his powers increased exponentially. By the time Cable and Deadpool #1 arrived, Cable was at Nate Grey's level if not better. But Cable had the experience and control to use his powers a lot more effectively than Nate, who usually just lashed out telekinetically. Cable could manipulate molecules, transmute viruses, and go toe to toe with the Silver Surfer, while keeping his floating island in the air AND repairing all the damage him and the Surfer did as their fight carried them around half the world AND he still managed to break the Surfer's board. And then after the Surfer managed to destroy Cable's techno-organic arm, Cable was still able to lower his island to float on the ocean and telepathically speak to every person on the planet. That trumps Nate Grey by leaps and bound.

 

By the time you see Cable in Civil War, he has lost all his powers and managed to re-create them through technological means. Currently Cable has no powers and has gone back to gun-toting. But he is not a victim of M-Day, he simply burned out his powers while fixing Deadpool's messed up brain.

Wolverine was my first favorite. I first remember that being the case in that "Pryde of the X-Men" episode and also the old X-Men arcade game. My brothers and I would go out in the yard and pretend to be our favorite characters before we created our own heroes and eventually even our own continuity. Pretty in depth stuff. Imaginations are great.

 

When I got into comics shortly after the second X-Men title was launched I kept following Wolverine and also began picking up his titles. I still like to look at those gritty Mark Texiera pencils.

 

I also liked the period where Sabretooth was playing the hero bit from the Phalanx Crossover through to the post-AoA Onslaught run-up. I always found X-Factor to be more interesting that the other X-teams.

My Favorite X-Man/Woman.... Well those characters have changed alot since I started reading (UXM #232 was 1st issue I bought, when it came out).

 

 

X-Man: Havok- I've always had a soft spot for the more powerful Summer's Brother (pre Vulcan of course). Havok's power was always so destructive that he'd never dare turn it on a living person (with a few exceptions of course). Never quite as sure of his leadership abilities, He was a good leader and a fine X-Man

 

X-Woman: Rachel (Summers) Grey- The Daughter of Cyclops & Phoenix (cause in her world, her mom was Phoenix, not really Jean Grey). Rachel has had a very tough life and upon coming to Earth 616 it hasn't been any easier. She made alot of mistakes but has always tried to do the right thing. The Starchild will always be my favorite X-gal!

totally

i think cable will be the strongest soon, he is just so powerful and he is gonna play a big role in the x-mens future! It would be cool to see him fight against or with the big guys like thor or the members of the avengers in the near future when he becomes powerful enough

and he will be unstopable!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :cyclops:

Emma Frost. Why? She's hot, she's brutally honest and she has two very cool powers!

 

 

Favorite X-Man:

 

 

Gambit. Mister Mystery, suave, very cool power and still has several secrets in his closet I'd wager.

I've always had a thing for second rate characters such as Doc Reyes and Forge, that said, my favourite X-Men/X-Women are:

 

X-Men:

1) Thunderbird I (you gotta love someone so stubborn as to kill himself instead of letting the bad guy run)

 

2) Thunderbid III (an Indian X-Men, just the notion about mixing his religion with his mutanity makes my eyelashes curl)

 

3) Northstar

 

4) Banshee

 

5) Paulie Provenzano (same as stubborns, I love morons)

 

X-Women:

1) Psylocke (british, if possible)

 

2) Cecilia Reyes (will she ever get a proper nickname and an outfit? stubborn, stubborn, stubborn)

 

3) Jubilee

 

4) Lifeguard (there's still a dangler plot in there...)

 

5) Jean Grey (even if I prefer Scott to be related to Emma, I miss Jean so much)

 

And here's a thing I did toying with Photoshop:

BTW: I updated my Marvel Legends site, I don't know if I posted it here... take a look at it and send as many covers as you like.

    • ShartimusPrime takes a look at the new Marvel Legends Sp//dr Build-A-Figure which is part of the newest Spider-Man themed wave from Hasbro. The figures in this wave include Doc Ock, Cloak, Dagger, All-New All-Different Daredevil, Elektra, House Of M Spider-Man and Scarlet Spider. You can purchase these figures now at Megalopolis.Toys.
       

      Check out hi-res images for this figure below in our GALLERY!
    • Gunn said something stupid and for once in the history of forever a d**k got what he had coming. End of story. Personal responsibility. Pass it on.
    • Since he was so sorry and apologetic about his tweets,  why not delete them? And this whole "I was being a provocateur" excuse is laughable. The reality is that the things he said we're so reprehensible and perverse there was no believable explanation he could offer,  so he just said he was joking... Yes, joking about serious issues does not immediately mean that the person is involved in them. I'll give you that,  but this wasn't just one tweet,  this was a whole series of horrible tweets, not one of which was funny in any way, all revolving around the same subject,  pedophilia. Which should raise a Red flag in most people's eyes. Often where there is smoke, there is fire. Especially in Hollywood. Have you ever heard of anyone by the name Weinstein, Spacey, or Singer? I agree that people can certainly change,  but why not go back and delete those tweets? The mere fact that Gunn left these up on twitter, suggests to me that he was never all that concerned or apologetic about their content. If I was to tweet something awful, get called out on it, and was truly apologetic, I would go out of my way to remove the offensive tweets. And while I know the GOTG cast has said he isn't the same person he was back then, let's not pretend that any of the cast actually know what Gunn does in his private life. My opinion on Dave Bautista is just that,  an opinion and I stand by it.
      Gunn is the one who really mishandled this situation. A public figure like Gunn should know his tweets will be held to a higher standard & yes these vile tweets will probably define him for some time, quite fairly in my opinion. However,  I don't think this sends a message to your average person,  that no matter how much they've changed as a person they'll always be defined by their lowest point, as they are simply regular people & not public figures like Gunn, the millionaire Hollywood director. The sheer volume & subject matter of Gunn's tweets were beyond awful & extremely disturbing. A public figure like Gunn should know better than to post these sort of things that would come come back to haunt him, & had he been sorry enough for tweeting about how much he enjoy's little boys touching his "naughty place", he would have deleted them, however here we are today & it feels like more than anything else,  he's sorry he got caught.
    • Gunn did explain the purpose behind those tweets, expressing that his intention those years ago was to act as a provocateur. He additionally had already apologized for his raunchy attempts at humor. I don't think that joking about serious issues in such a way necessarily means that a person has a thing for them, especially if the purpose of those "jokes" is to cause a reaction. It's making a joke which is offensive for the sake of it being offensive, and not necessarily to insinuate some kind of depraved fetish. There have been many news of idiot tourists making the Nazi salute in Germany, which doesn't automatically entail they're Nazis. They're just idiots (at the very least, hopefully). I believe this is a similar case with James Gunn.

      His tweets are disgusting, and don't say anything nice about the person he was in 2010. However, Gunn himself and the people he has closely worked with for over five years expressed that he has changed and that he's no longer the kind of person those tweets reflect. I don't think any kind of conclusion from this incident should be made without taking those people into account. And I don't think it's appropriate to assume Dave Bautista is depraved solely based on his stance from this situation. He knows much more about James Gunn than the slim portion most people get to see. Gunn's situation has been mishandled for the most part by people online, and shows a toxic mentality. It tells people that it doesn't matter how much they have changed as a person, their lowest point will always define them. And just in case there's any doubt, I don't mean to defend James Gunn's tweets, or the type of "humor" we waved like a flag back then. I don't even want to pretend to know what course of action Disney should've taken. It's a slippery slope, but there should be some balance between painting him as a misunderstood saint and a depraved would-be child-molester.
    • Pedophilia is not something that should EVER be joked about. It is a real problem worldwide and it is horrible. The tweets made by James Gunn were extremely insensitive and vile,  especially to victims and their families. Not one of these so called jokes were funny and they suggest that Mr. Gunn at the very least is a sick individual who could very well be involved in pedophilia in some form. He is simply not fit to direct anything until all of these "jokes" are adequately explained. I find it very sad & pathetic that so many people have defended Gunn and his disgusting tweets. It speaks volumes when thousands jump to the defense of a man who has endorsed pedophilia & may himself be a pedophile, simply because he directed a couple of entertaining movies. Here's to hoping that Disney will fire Dave Bautista too. He has been the most vocal of Gunn's supporters and I suspect has some disturbing skeletons in his closet as well.
