Best of the X

If there’s one thing the X-Men stand for, it’s change – and so their roll-call over the years has been incredibly fluid, with over a hundred members in their fifty-year run.  But which X-Men have had the most impact?  Who’s the most unforgettable?  In short – who, in your eyes, is Best of the X?  Here, have your say; place your votes in our X-poll; and we’ll see who comes out on top… After a week, we’ll announce the winners as part of our 50th anniversary celebrations!

And this is just a start!

Poll is now closed for voting.

For the record, this includes every X-Man according to that venerable source, Wikipedia.  It does not include:

  • X-Men splinter groups, e.g. X-Factor, X-Force, Excalibur, Generation X, X Marks the Spot… oops, sorry, I made that last one up!
  • X-Men-in-training teams, e.g. Young X-Men, Jean Grey School students, Generation X… OK, you get that this doesn’t include Generation X yet?
  • Monet St. Croix – she’s not been a member of the X-Men yet (even if she was in, you know, Generation X)

It does however include:

  • The Phalanx Covenant team (that’s why Synch is in it)
  • Deadly Genesis team
  • Muir Island team (1989)
  • Genoshan Assault team (Jean Grey’s 2001 recruits)
  • Street team X-Men (hurriedly banded together by Cyclops after Xorn had gone ballistic)

This will allow multiple votes, so if you have a couple and are tied, you can vote for two or three (please, a max of three).  We’re going to take you on trust – please don’t vote for the same character twice!

Vote away, True Believers!

      There are a ton of less popular characters that I love that aren’t getting love. Yay for Revanche, and even Doop for getting votes.

    1. For now, just your personal top here – and if you’re tied, you can do multiple votes. We’ll then break down the characters who got the most votes, and show who the top 10 most popular were! 🙂
