Title: Best X-Men Team
Post by: Jeff on June 25, 2018, 01:01:53 PM
Spinning out of my Best Titans thread I started thinking about who would be on my favorite X-Men team?

I have a lot of favorite characters in this group but would love to see it trimmed down to only one official "X-Men" team with two ancillary teams.

Uncanny X-Men
Charles Xavier
Wolverine
Jean Grey (Original)
Storm
Nightcrawler
Colossus
Kitty Pryde
Rogue
Gambit
Psylocke
Havok
Dazzler
Jubilee (non-vampire)
Bishop
Armour
Kid Omega (Quentin Quire)
Chamber
Franklin Richards (a teen version - he's never been an X-Man but I'v always thought he'd be great here)

X-Factor
Multiple Man
Layla Miller
Strong Guy
Wolfsbane
Longshot
Siryn
Monet

X-Force
Cable
Hope Summers
Shatterstar
Cannonball
Husk
Warpath
Domino
X-23
Fantomex

I'd put Beast back on the Avengers and Iceman & Archangel together on some new team consisting of non-X-Men.

I'd have Cyclops, Rachel Summers, Forge, Marrow, Warlock, and Rictor cameo in all the books for single story arcs but not part of any team.  I would also annul the Cyclops/Jean Grey marriage and free these two up for better stories.

Emma I would put back in the Hellfire Club and take the Stepford Cuckoos with her.  They'd be great villains with the Cuckoo's being conflicted from good to bad.

As for Uncanny - I know that's a lot of members on the team but I would treat this similar to the Legion of Super-Heroes rotating characters for small story arcs and only bringing in everyone for a big event - event that is contained within the single title and only using these 17 characters.  I might also drop Jubilee down to X-Force or X-Factor - not sure.  Would also love to see what Hickman could do with this cast.

Did I miss any of your favorites?  Anyone I like that you'd ditch?  What would your roster look like?

I personally like the X-Men small and with no other teams running about, just one small team of maybe 7 or 8 being The Uncanny X-Men

And that team being:
Xavier - at base only
Cyclops
Jean
Storm
Nightcrawler
Wolverine
Colossus
and then two controversial picks
Havok
and
Fantomex ... Just always liked this guys look.
