i got this topic idea off of the x-men forum on marvel.com. who do you guys think is the most overrated x-man?????

i say gambit and angel. they are cool, but their powers seem quite weak in comparison to those of the other members on the team(s). i just dont see why these two guys are SO popular.

lately his powers have become suped up to a stupid extent.

Totally agree. I liked it better when it took him a while to heal. It made him more interesting and it gave him more depth. He actually had to try to elude people sometimes and use strategy and stealth. I also think his old healing factor made him a lot tougher. By tougher I mean, It used to be when he got shot or stabbed it hurt him like hell and it took time for his body to knit itself back together (even the healing was painful). Even when he knew an injury or a batttle was gonna hurt him bad and it may take him weeks to recover, he kept coming. It takes a tough as nails S.O.B to go into a battle thinking "man I might be laid up in pain for couple of weeks if I keep fighting, but I've got to do it". Now if he gets shot he is practically healed before the bullet has exited his body, sword and knife wounds heal in seconds (It once took him a couple months to heal from a sword wound through the gut). To me this makes him not as tough. If I knew I would heal in one second I would run in like gangbusters too.

I never liked the idea that Wolverine could regrow organs and even a freaking heart.

Storm overrated? Wolverine by far is not only the most overrated X-Men but most overrated in the Marvel U.

P.S. If you think Gambit has weak powers I truly think you haven't taken the time to know the character.

Neither Id say Cyclops, Emma Frost, or, Beast. Wolverine and Storm are cornerstone characters, even though i do agree that wolvies power level has gotten a bit dumb. But Id much rather see more of havok than cyclops, and would rather have Jean Grey than Emma.

Search for some Storm battle threads and you'll see why everyone says Storm. I'd go with Emma and Gambit.

Those are my thoughts aswell.

I also have to nominate Storm too. Writers go completely overboard with her powers.

wolverine is NOT overrated

Lets get real here Hes one of marvels TOP money making heros behid spiderman and hulk  hes quickly become the face of marvel and as such hes been beefed up so whats overrated about that? He has constantly been shown getting his ass handed to him being riped cut shot more than any other hero out there. If we all saw spiderman get mamed like that we all cry or hed be dead. His power has grown and that makes sense as its a mutation.

he was left out of civil war....and hes on a new avengers team running backup to LUKE CAGE..................LUKE FREAKING CAGE!  and I like cage but come on you cant tell me logan is seriously gonna take order from him.

wolverine is fine

oh ok

Um well like i said I am cage fan but  hes just cage and I cant see someone like wolverine or spiderman for that matter following him.
Wolverine has more expirence and is pretty smart at war tactics and overall military issues Cage is street smart he did keep them together and does have something to him but honestly wolverine and Dr. strange should lead that team it just seems more natural of a fit.  Also wolveinre is tough guy to command and only Cap and Cylocpus have done it and they are the best leaders in marvel U

so i guess thats what I am thinking

I THINK......

-WOLVERINE: I love him, but he's realllllllllllly overatted and always looked as being soo great, and has a ton of his own series plus is like in all the x titles (most)

-CYCLOPS: I did like him as a leader before, but now i'm tired of him! he's so overrated in the sense that his powers/leadership is so great, but i don't really think he's all that powerful and he sometimes is a jerk!

-SHADOWCAT- She just seems like she gets soo much attention, but I feel like she's reallly 2-demesional personality wise!

Well you're totally correct.... besides from having a near lifetime of training and developing his leadership skills, as well as finding ways to use his powers, plus his tactical brilliance, he has nothing....
