GAMBITGUILD.COM GREATEST X-MEN: 10-1
« on: January 05, 2014, 12:44:27 PM »
RANKS 10-1, 100% MEMBER VOTE.


SELFLESS DOESN’T BEGIN TO DESCRIBE NATHAN DAYSPRING SUMMERS. THE OMEGA LEVEL, TIME JUMPING, MUTANT SON OF CYCLOPS AND MADELYNE PRYOR (JEAN GREY CLONE) DEBUTED IN NEW MUTANTS #86 IN 1990. THOUGH HE WAS FIRST SHOWN IN UXM #201, AS A CHILD. HE’S A NO NONSENSE TYPE THAT HAS THROWN HIMSELF TO THE WOLVES FOR THE GREATER GOOD MORE THAN ONCE OR TWICE. MOST NOTABLY FOR THE SURVIVAL OF HOPE SUMMERS, HIS ADOPTED DAUGHTER AND SAVIOR OF THE MUTANT RACE.

Rogue being flung vagina-first at the first male that pops up on her radar isn't how I'd define "romance," but Marvel must be using a different dictionary than me.- NicoPony

THE 2ND YOUNGEST X-MAN ON THE LIST IN TERMS OF REAL TIME AGE, GAMBIT, REMY LEBEAU, SPRANG INTO OUR HEARTS AND FAN  FICTION IN 1990, FIRST IN AN ANNUAL AND OFFICIAL IN UXM #266. SINCE HIS DEBUT ‘TRUST’ HAS ALWAYS BEEN AN ISSUE FOR HIM. HIS SHADY PAST AND BLACK/RED EYES DIDN’T HELP MATTERS. HE’S BOTH BEEN ATTACHED TO DARKNESS AS WELL AS SINGLE HANDEDLY SAVING THE EARTH BY SACRIFICING HIMSELF. GAMBIT’S GREATNESS COMES MORE FROM HIS REAL WORLD EFFECTS THAN HIS CANNON FEATS. GAMBIT’S MASS APEAL HAS KEPT FANS AROUND THE WORLD INVESTED IN HIM AND THE UNIVERSE THAT SURROUNDS HIM FOR YEARS. DON’T NEED TO READ THE BOOKS TO KNOW WHO GAMBIT IS.

ONE OF THE ORIGINAL 5 X-MEN AS WELL AS A CORE  MEMBER OF THE 90’s ANIMATED SERIES X-MEN, BEAST, HENRY McCOY FIRST APPEARED IN X-MEN #1 IN 1963. HANK ISNT JUST AN X-MAN, HE’S ALSO BEEN A PART-TIME AVENGER FOR THE BETTER PART OF 40YRS. HE’S   RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CREATION AND UPKEEP OF MOST OF THE X-MEN’S TOOLS, AND ACTS AS THE TEAMS VOICE OF REASON… MOST OF THE TIME, ANYWAY.

NO OTHER X-MAN ON THIS LIST WEARS HIS MUTANCY MORE THAN KURT WAGNER, NIGHTCRAWLER. UNLIKE BEAST WHO’S APPEARANCE IS SELF INFLICTED AND STILL COULD CONSIDERED ‘CUTE’ , KURT HAS WORN HIS DEVILISH  APPEARANCE SINCE HIS MOTHER, MYSTIQUE, BIRTHED HIM.  SINCE HIS FIRST APPEARANCE IN  1975, KURT HAS BEEN THE TEAM’S LIGHT, HOPE AND DETERMINATION. IF JEAN IS THE SOUL OF THE X-MEN, KURT WAGNER IS THE HEART. BEFORE RECENTLY BEING REVIVED IN AMAZING X-MEN, KURT DIED IN THE SERVICE OF PROTECTING HIS FRIENDS. IN HIS ABSENCE THE X-MEN HAVE SUFFERED A SCHISM.

PROBABLY ONE OF THE MOST SUCCESSFUL REFORMED VILLAINS OF ALL TIME, ROGUE DEBUTED IN AN AVENGERS BOOK AS AN ANTAGONIST. SINCE THEN, SHE'S NOT JUST BECOME A LOYAL AND DEDICATED X-MAN, BUT A LEADER ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS. LIKE BEAST AND SEVERAL OTHERS, ROGUE IS ALSO AN AVENGER. SHE'S BEST KNOWN FOR HER COMPASSION, BEAUTY, WHITE STREAK OF HAIR, TITAN-LIKE STRENGTH (PRODUCT OF THE POWERS SHES STOLE AND RETAINED FROM MS. MARVEL) AND LONG STANDING RELATIONSHIP WITH FELLOW X-MAN AND 90's ANIMATED SERIES ALUMNI, GAMBIT.

ANOTHER MEMBER OF THE FOX ANIMATED SERIES, JEAN GREY AKA THE PHOENIX, DEBUTED ALONGSIDE THE OTHER ORIGINAL X-MEN IN 1963 IN X-MEN #1. MOST CHARACTERS THAT DIE IN COMICS EVENTUALLY COME BACK, BUT NO ONE DOES IT MORE OR BETTER THAN JEAN GREY. SHE'S BEEN THE DRIVING FORCE BEHIND TWO OF THE MOST IMPORTANT X-MEN TO DATE (HER HUSBAND CYCLOPS, AND WOLVERINE) AND WILL PROBABLY CONTINUE TO BE UNTIL SHE INEVITABLY RETURNS.

THOUGH SOME WOUKD SAY SHE FEELS LIKE ONE OF THE ORIGINAL 5 X-MEN, ORORO MUNROE, BETTER KNOWN AS STORM, DEBUTED IN 1975 AS PART OF THE SECOND TEAM OF X-MEN GATHERED BY PROFESSOR-X TO RESCUE THE ORIGINALS. FOLLOWING THAT SHE'S BEEN A PROVEN LEADER, PART OF THE GROUND BREAKING 90s SERIES, AN AVENGER AND EVEN MARRIED THE BLACK PANTHER, TRULY BECOMING A QUEEN.

THE MAN ONLY KNOWN AS THE WOLVERINE OR JUST SIMPLY “LOGAN” FOR THE VAST MAJORITY OF HIS EXISTENCE, WAS DEBUTED IN 1974 AS A FOIL FOR THE INCREDIBLE HULK. INCREDIBLY POPULAR EVEN AMONG YOUNG CHILDREN, DESPITE HAVING ARGUABLY THE MOST DEVASTATING HAND-TO-HAND WEAPONS IN ALL OF COMICS, AND AN EXTREMELY VIOLANT DEMEANOR. HE AND A HANDFULL OTHERS CARRY THE X-BOOKS AND ODDLY ENOUGH HE HAS EMBRACED XAVIER’S DREAM OF CO-EXISTENCE AND PROVIDED A SAFE HAVEN FOR YOUNG MUTANTS TO LEARN, GROW AND DEVELOP.

SCOTT SUMMERS, SOME WOULD CALL “THEY” X-MAN. DEBUTED AS ONE OF THE ORIGINAL 5 IN 1963 IN X-MEN #1. HE'S LED THEM IN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER FOR THE BETTER PART OF NEARLY 60 YEARS. PRESENT ACTIONS EXCLUDED,  CYCLOPS FOUGHT FOR MUTANT EQUALITY, RIGHTS AND  FREEDOM AS FIERCELY AS ANYONE AND IN HIS OWN WAY STILL DOES. AS STRAIGHT AN ARROW AS HE’S BEEN, HE STILL HAS FAULTS AS A MAN AND WEARS THEM ON HIS SLEEVE WITHOUT APOLOGY. PAST EVERYTHING HE’S DONE AND BEEN THROUGH, CYCLOPS IS POSSIBLY THE MOST ICONIC X-MAN TODAY.

THE CREATOR, MENTOR AND PROPRIETOR OF THE X-MEN, CHARLES XAVIER, BETTER KNOWN AS PROFESSOR-X, FORMED THE X-MEN AS A MEANS TO PURSUE MUTANT EQUALITY AND PEACEFUL CO-EXISTENCE BETWEEN MUTANTS AND HUMANS. HE’S FOUGHT FAMILY, FRIEND AND STUDENT ALIKE TO CHASE THAT DREAM. NEARLY DYING ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS AND EVEN LOSING USE OF HIS LEGS, MIND, AND ULTIMATELY HIS LIFE, XAVIER’S DREAMS AND NAME WILL LIVE ON IN HIS X-MEN FOREVER.
