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...

In X-men: The Animated Series, after Rogue, Gambit, and Wolverine find Nightcrawler, Nightcrawler gives Wolverine a Bible and talks to him about faith. At the end of the episode we see Wolverine praying.

It is set up in alphabetical order according to codename at the moment.

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.

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.

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...

Congratulations to x-menobsessed26 the winner of Fan of the Month for July. Here is the exclusive interview.

How does it feel to be the first X-Men fan of the month?
It's nice knowing that it wasn't just myself that sees that I'm all about the X-men, and others see it as well.

Who are your favorite X-Men?
This is a hard one, but obviously I love Jean Grey and Scott Summers. I'm also impartial to Alex Summers, Lorna Dane, Laura Kinney, Julian Keller, Rogue, and Remy LeBeau.

Any favored villains?
I like Mr. Sinister because whenever he is involved, it is usually leaves a complicated and...

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.
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.

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...

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.

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....

    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.
I'd be sad too if I unknowingly joined a supervillain team

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.

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....

This post is going to be a bit more of a rant than it probably should be, but it’s been weighing on my chest for the last few months since I saw the damned movie. I need to let it out. This is an OPINION piece. Just remember that.

X-men: Days of Future Past was a pretty good movie overall. There were parts I didn’t like, parts I liked, and parts I loved. I was truly impressed with it considering I had no hope going in to see it. My expectations were virtually nonexistent.

Like I said, the were parts of the movie I truly enjoyed. Many parts. I won’t go into specifics because I feel it’s...

I have decided to write this article because of the aproaching release of days of future past.

1. Xmen: Basically, this is when marvel is just introducing our favorite team to the big screen. It isn't all that bad but i still feel that they could've done better. Plot: wolverine and shadowcat are taken to charles's school for gifted youngsters(obviously mutants). There they meet charles xavier and his teachers: storm, jean grey, and cyclops. But not everything is as it seems. P. S., I AM NOT GIVING ANY SPOILERS!!!!!!

2. Xmen: (sorry, forgot the name of this one!) In this one, the nonmutants find...

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...

This review is about my personal thoughts, concerning the Dark Phoenix film. You don't have to agree. After all, having different opinions is one of the main things, that makes each person unique and interesting.

Before Seeing The Film:

When I first heard about the film and started seeing advertisements, I had some interest in it. This was primarily because of Sophie Turner. Although I'm no longer a Game of Thrones fan, I still really like her acting. I'm also a big fan of superheroes, so I was excited, to see her play a superhero. I heard lots of dread and negative feelings, from critics,...

    Okay it is one in the morning and therefore it seems like the perfect time to run my mouth. Now I am one of those obnoxious people who rather than gushing over a fanfiction in the comments I give real criticism and tips. I know, I am such a bitch. Or at least that’s what people tell me. So rather than offending everyone by singling their fanfiction out in the comments I am writing this handy article for how to write something passable as a good, and balanced story. Keep in mind that I am not a professional. I am not saying that I’m better than you. I just want to...

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,...

    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).
How hot is that mask with half her hair stuffed in there?

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.

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...
