Towards the beginning of the most recent X-Men, their was a part that the General's crew went to a place they called Lagos,Nigeria and in the scene there were people with diamonds. The last time I checked the location where this scene was acted, it was in South Africa.Although, we have diamonds in Nigeria but it is not a commercial commodity and not in a very large quantity. The "Lagos, Nigeria" was a slum.Africa has a whole is potrayed as poor Lagos used to be Nigeria's Capital and any country's capital no matter how poor they may be will have a capital to be heard of. Lagos is a place full of economic activities and as access to the seaports,airports and land. Long since God knowns when, Nigeria has been "christened" this bad name with corruption, hacking, robbery, gangs and so on. So, please and please I am Using this opportunity to appeal to everyone out there that Nigeria is not as the way people make it look like in movies, the media, and so on.

I usually have no idea how to start these articles off without sounding foolish or ... foolish, so I'm just going to get that out of the way right now and tell you to expect this article to sound foolish. With that taken care of, my reasoning for doing this is my current obsession with countdowns. I don't know if it's just me, but I freaking ADORE countdowns. Unfortunately, they always leave me with this awkward need to make my own, so here I am.

In case you didn't notice before, this article is about my top 15 favorite X-men villains IN THE COMICS. I'm going to tell you right off the bat that...

If you have any characters that you would like to see added, please let me know in the comments below. Be aware however, that if it shows up that that character has an unknown religion, don’t blame me for it. I promise that the religion is really, truly unknown. You can speculate, but that’s the best you can do. If you want to discuss certain religions and how you think certain people on this list are actually a different religion than listed, please discuss it in the forum topic I will make for that purpose.

Am I the only one who thinks his face is off in the picture?
Am I the only one who thinks his face is off in the picture?
I am no fashion expert. I just thought that since Havok is mutant of the week, it would be fun to review his past costumes purely off pictures. I wanted to write a Havok article and this seemed like the easiest one to do. I'm getting my pictures and info from uncannyxmen.net. So without further ado let's get to the article.
I mean seriously it's like a black hole.

1. Containment Suit
This is Havok's first superhero costume and like with a lot of superhero costumes it doesn't look too great. It is plain, and black except for some circles on his chest and a very interesting looking headpiece....

Movie Reviews
I don’t know if this qualifies as fortunate or unfortunate, with me making this. If you don't agree, that's just fine. Please leave a comment in the section below, and be semi-polite about it. I am very aware that my opinions may not be the same as yours, but I do expect you to respect mine as I will respect yours. Thank you.

“X-men”- This movie had it all. It had comedy in the form of character interaction. You have the actions/comments that Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) and Cyclops (James Marsden) make toward each other. One of my favorites is when Wolverine finally gets his...

A little bit of background before we begin. For those who may not know, and without going into too much AvX detail, the Phoenix Five (which is going to be abbreviated as P5) was created for the Avengers vs. X-men crossover event a few years ago. The P5 consisted of Namor the Sub-mariner, Piotr Rasputin/Colossus, Illyana Rasputina/Magik, Emma Frost, and Scott Summers/Cyclops. The P5 was created by Iron Man splitting the Phoenix Force which then possessed them. One by one, they would start losing their control, and their portion of Phoenix, until only one would remain with the full force of Phoenix....

Laura killing her mother, Sarah Kinney, due to the affects of the trigger scent.
In 'Innocence lost' X-23 got a letter from her mother. These are the contents:

Please forgive me. Even as I write the words, they ring so hollow. My mistakes… No, my choices… They cannot be undone, much less forgiven. How all this came to pass… and the truth about Weapon X. Had it ended there, would I be less a monster? Or more? Would I even know the difference? Of course I don't have to tell you about monsters. Your life is defined by monsters. Replicating the mutant genome proved difficult but rebuilding Weapon X seemed all but impossible. For every enzyme, for every codon, for every...

Okay I finally finished it! If you have any other questions about it or want more details about a specific thing just ask because this nonsense is stupidly complicated.

(Messiah Complex)

Hope summers was born in Cooperstown Alaska to Captain Louise Spalding of the Cooperstown Fire Department. Hope was the first mutant born after M Day and this made her a target from the start. Cooperstown was attacked by the Purifiers (Stryker's old team of mutant haters) and the Marauders (Mr. Sinister's team) who both wished to capture the baby for different reasons. The Purifiers hoped that by killing the...

I have no drive to do any fanfiction writing right now, so I decided to instead use that time to write another countdown article. My sister and I as a tradition will watch X-men : The Animated Series together over the summer, and we started that today. I received my inspiration for this countdown for that, and in the first of what will become a series of X-men : TAS countdowns, I am first counting down my top 10 favorite X-men from X-men : The Animated Series.

I am only going to ask that you keep your comments mildly civil. I am surely going to say some things you won't agree with, and I am...

Sadly this image only features the originals and not the clones.
Ok this is the first countdown article I have done for this club but hopefully it won't be the last. I didn't get a lot of feedback on these picks so if you feel like I forgot something tell me in the comments. Also because of some confusion with whether you pick you least favorite or most favorite the results are going to be a little different from the picks themselves.

3. STRYFE
Stryfe who is a clone of Nathan Summers aka Cable was chosen as the least favorite clone. I assume part of it is a lot of people don't know Cable or Stryfe because they aren't popular characters. Another reason may...

I can remember being fourteen in a Meijer grocery store and strolling down the "Movies" aisle, trying to ignore my family behind me because I was too cool for that. As I walked, something caught my eye. A name I had become all too familiar with spotting in the recent months since I had discovered it. "X-Men" was emblazoned across a DVD case with cartoon figures I recognized instantly. I couldn't believe it! I had only seen two episodes of this show from an old VHS my dad had collected. I was so excited about my discovery that I rushed back to my parents, the same ones I had been trying to avoid,...

Instead of continuing with X-men : The Animated Series characters, I decided to just do more members of X-men from other series. The next is the X-men from X-men : Evolution.

It should be pointed out that four of these (Charles, Logan, Ororo, and Hank) are considered instructors, not true X-men for some strange reason. However, to get an even 10 (hello multiples of 10) , I added those four onto the main teenage six.

I am not responsible for any spoilers you may run into while reading this article. Read with caution. Enter at your own risk.

Sorry this article took so long! I’d like to thank everyone who voted and commented on the picks, even though not many people did. So if you didn’t vote and think the results are inaccurate, vote on the pick next time. Anyway here it goes! Fanpop’s favorite X-Men Cartoon Series!

3. Wolverine and the X-Men

    The most recent television series is also least liked. In this series centered around Marvel’s most marketable mutant, Wolverine must try to bring the X-Men back together after an explosion at the X-Mansion along with the disappearance of Jean Grey and Professor...

    Yay another costume review. I know that I’m cutting it close but at less I’m finally getting it done. Jean has had a lot of pictures during her run in comics, some of which were actually worn by Phoenix first (it’s a long story). Now I am going to give my unwanted opinion on all of them (or at least the ones listed on uncannyxmen.net).

I finally get to write this after a month of picks! I’m going to tell you right now that these figures are based on what they were at the time. More people may have voted and changed the picks since then. So if you complain you obviously didn’t read this part and shall be fed to Sabertooth! Moving on, today we are counting down Fanpop’s favorite original X Men. Because if you just put favorite X Men then it would be a year before I could even try to post it. Onto number six! At least I’m pretty sure it’s six let me check…. Aha I was right! Okay number six.

I have been taking forever on all of my articles and I really deserve a slap in the face for it. I shall administer that now. AH SON OF A BANSHEE RIDING A MOTORCYCLE! Now that that’s out of the way I bring you the Top Five Worst X Men Hairstyles.
Honorable Mention
Daken- I didn’t add him to the list because I forgot about him so his foot long lazy Mohawk only gets an honorable mention.

Another spur of the moment article that I was prompted to write because I realize that I never list any female X Men in my favorites list. I probably spent more time actually writing this article than any of my other articles so that I could get it just right. So here’s to you Women of X, I’m finally acknowledging you.
Honorable Mention goes to Aliya Dayspring and Madelyne Pryor.

    I know this is late but school started and I’m sure Sam would agree that my classes are more important than me talking about how crappy his uniforms are. And believe me are they crappy. Just one of the side effects of the 90’s and Rob Liefeld. I don’t have much else to say here so let’s get to the costumes.

It is once again one in the morning and I am yet again bored. So I’ve decided to try and contribute some more non fanfiction articles to the X Men club. Also I should be starting my Original X Men Countdown article but when you feel like you have to do it, it’s less fun. I see a lot of people post their personal favorites lists on other clubs so I figured I’d give it a go. Here are my top five favorite X Men MOVIE characters.
Love at first serious look.

Hello fellow fans of X and welcome to yet another wonderful X-men countdown article. Normally, I try for the number 15 in my articles unless otherwise made impossible, but this time it is 5. The flip side companion of this article is also 5 and will be posted at a later date as will the comic counterparts. The subject of this article is something with which fans of X have become grossly familiar : death. I will be counting down in this article the top 5 best X-men movie death scenes.


Let me make clear that which is already obvious. This is my opinion, not yours. that being said, my opinion has...
