Yeah, sexy floppy mohawk.
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.
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.
How could I forget the beads!?
Maggot- Another one I forgot to add to the picks. He has kind of the same thing going on as Strong Guy so I guess it wasn’t necessary to have him on here.
Mom you just don't understand me.
4. Storm’s Mohawk
This seems to be one of those love it or hate it things. Some people like seeing Storm with a totally new look or think it’s just a great joke. Others intensely hate the new look and wish that the comic writers didn’t take away Storm’s dignity. Storm kept this hairstyle for a while but when she regained her powers she started growing it out again. Either way you have to admit Storm could pull it off unlike others on our list.
Back to the trailer park!
3. Longshot’s Mullet
I’ve read that the writers gave Longshot a mullet purely because you don’t see a lot of superheroes with mullets. There is a reason for this. It’s hard to take a character seriously when he’s sporting the patron hairstyle of rednecks everywhere. Thankfully he got a haircut recently in X Factor. One thing about Longshot’s hairstyle is you do actually find people in real life with this hairstyle so I assume that’s why it’s fairly low on the list.
He takes more time doing his hair then a girl does
2. Shatterstar’s Ponytails
I guess the Mojoverse has no fashion sense judging by two of its most famous inhabitants. Of course Shatterstar was a product of Rob Liefeld so what else can you expect. Star had multiple ponytails and braids that seemed to change every panel and that really just makes it confusing. Star also got a haircut in X Factor and a new costume to the cheers of many fans. Shatterstar’s hairstyle is iconic in its own way and I assume that was enough to save him from the number 1 spot.
Are you ready for the number one choice? Okay………. It’s a tie!
I wonder how much his hairdresser chrages him for this nonsense
1. Strong Guy’s Forehead Pigtail.
Strong Guy’s pig tail is fairly iconic and does fit his joker personality but you have to draw the line at some point. When you shave your head except for a small piece on your forehead that is across the line. This is probably one of the longest running hairstyles on this list. Strong Guy had his pig tail until, you guessed it, the new X Factor series! Wow that writer just loves updating looks.
Stryfe's true calling is fashion
1. Cable/Stryfe’s Umm Something
I put Cable/Stryfe because this was at the point when Stryfe was inhabiting Cable’s mind and forcing him to do odd things without his knowledge (fangirls please do NOT take advantage of this). So Stryfe decided he was going to give Nate a fashion lesson and grew this awesome rat tail, half shaved, beard combo. I really don’t know how to describe this thing so I’ll let the picture do the talking. Nate shaved it off after he regained control of his body leaving Stryfe to always mourn his amazing beard.
