Nightcrawler will always be my favorite, that's just how that goes.

Everyone else on that list would be tied for second place, except for Angel who I've just always found dull.

Also, you're missing quite a few current X-men from that list, most notably (for me) Jubilee, Northstar, M, Quire, Broo, Bling, and the Cuckoos.

I dont really have one character I can just say is my favorite, there are quite a few that I really like. If I just had to pick as far as voting goes, it would be Cyclops.

@mcklayn: or maybe I'm just a likable guy :v

and I do like Angel, I just don't consider him a favorite compared to anyone else on that list; he's a long way from my least favorite X-man. If he's around, cool, if he's not, I don't miss him.

Beside Cyclops and Magik, I voted for Magneto. Yup, Magneto's always been my Favorite character. Charismatic dark-grey-on-the-scale-of evil villains are chick magnets, what can I say? He's a badass.

Storm. She is not at the level that made me a mega-fan of the character, NOW has been rather hit or miss for me for most of the x-characters I like, but Storm is still far and away my favorite.

Of those listed, Magik seems to be the one they're doing the most interesting things with (without going totally out of character).

Magik and Cyclops probably have had the best developement the last few years. Kind of have been in love with Kitty ever since astonishing X-men though :p.

4. Magik (Don't know why but I just like her)

5. Storm (She's awesome, and dat mohawk)

Beast is and always will be my favorite comic character. And character in general. With Rocket Raccoon close behind. But that's a different story.

I also have to give a shout out to Kitty for being the best female character. (thanks to Whedon's Astonishing X-Men run), Young Iceman (haven't read the newer X-Men enough to know much about normal iceman), and Nightcrawler because, well you know.

Magik , for the reasons of being untapped potential. Plus I'd like to see her on a better team.

Cyclops. I feel that he was screwed over in the movies just like Beast, Jean Grey, Storm, and basically every other character besides Wolverine.

Of the selection I'd have to say Magik because she's so dark and strange that you don't even get the sense she is on Cyke & Emma's side for any particular reason other than they're the most power-crazed. She looks like a little girl yet she can kick anyone's ass and is much wiser than most other characters.

I'm happy to see Magneto, Nightcrawler, Magik and Cyke equal for the lead. Mags, Cyke and Magik are my three favorite.

Two things surprises me tho. Emma has no vote and Wolverine isn't winning.

Cyclops is my current favorite. His character development has been really interesting. I just started reading All New X-Men, and I really like it so far. I also like how Jean Grey's being written.

There is only Storm

Emma, The Cuckoos, Sage, Iceman, Gambit and Psylocke.

Not a fave, but Cyclops is no longer the mutant/x-man i hate the most... thats now Wolverboring. I even like Cyke now.

I'm not big into Jean Grey or the whole "O5" thing, but, yeah,teen Jean already seems more interesting than 60's, mid-80's, or 90's Jean.

I voted for Beast (I am a fan of the Silver Age characters, most notably the super-genius intellects that Stan Lee co-created in this era so the genius of the X-founders gets my vote).

I do not like Magneto's place in the X-Men; much preferable to have him go back to villain-status IMO.

I like how each of the original X-men can be seen as a character Xavier would recruit to fulfill one of his functions as leader: Cyclops for his dedication to the cause, Beast for his intelligence, Jean for her powers, Angel for his wealth, and Iceman for his.. ..uh.. ..uh, basically so they could run the team without him if need be.

anyway, it was kind of like Beast was the other genius of the X-founders, since Xavier himself is supposed to be a genius.

and who was the third Silver Age super-genius introduced in the first X-men story?

Wolverine, OG Iceman, and OG Cyclops. Say what you will about the idea of time displaced X-Men, but these characters are a breath of fresh awesome.

Nightcrawler and Kitty Pryde are also up there.

@oldnightcrawler: Iceman would be comic relief and morale-boosting witty (and unwitty) humor.

@oldnightcrawler:

Sorry, I didn't understand what you meant for Iceman.

If you mean Magneto, him alongside Xavier are said to be gifted , but Beast was said to be super-genius (maybe not back then, but this seems like the case now).

Colossus for me, I love what Hopeless did with him and wish it had gone on longer. He took him through his grief and anger and showed how he could come out of it and find himself again. Plus make the relationship with Domino actually work and keep with their characters.. yeah, give me another year of Dennis's writing, please!

After him, I'd say Magik is the most interesting to me and I'm enjoying her search for control and regret over things she's done. I can't wait to see what happens next with her.

i agree with you on O5 Iceman and O5 Cyclops, they're the best characters and most fresh and fun we've had in ages. O5 Jean... i mean boring... she's another Hope, who was another Jean... who was herself another Jean... bored now.

Oh, and is anyone else getting an even stronger gaydar ping of O5 Iceman than we get off regular Iceman?
