Posted:Thats right, someone mentioned the X-men in the "madonna act your age" thread. And it got me thinking... If you were a mutant, and were part of the X-men, what would your ability be?

I'm gonna start with the ability to move at phenomanl speeds, so I could run up and wedgie my opponents without them realising.

Oh and I must admit, I havent searched frown so I hope something like this hasn't been done already ubblol

Everyone usually loves Wolverine, but no one can say he isn't a dude.

Gambit is awesome! And I like Rouge but defiantly not in the film. I was a bit disappointed they decided use Rouge before she met Miss Marvel, (before she stole her powers to fly and super strength) but she still might yet smile

You want a bitch? How can you argue with White Queen/Emma Frost


Non-Https Image Link


Even as a reformed villian she's still bitchier than a group of HEAT Magazine columnists combined...



I love Jean Grey due to her near omnipotence but also her capacity for self sacrifice. (I have a weakness for stories involving characters who ascend to godhood and sacrificial heronies)

"Live Scott, all I ever did was die on you..."



Psylocke - I can relate to her initial identity crisis of a Brit in an Asian Body.



P.S. I find it hilarious that Sinister's real name is 'Nathaniel Essex'... HE should be the one in short skirts and white stilletos biggrin

Posted:Well in the comics now she's back with the Hellfire Club plotting to tear the X-Men apart from the inside (or is she?) A goal which is helped as she's shagging Cyclops as well now... (Well, they're REALLY in love)

She can turn into diamond as well...

I love that she's reformed villain and has been a hero for years whilst still being a bitch (which could be another way of saying she speaks the truth more often than the more righteous X-Men do)

Her mini-series charting her origin (titled 'Emma Frost') and family background is riveting.

But she's reluctantly become a villian again whilst being genuinely in love with Cyclops.

This is getting a bit to soap-opera now...

Although may look into it a little if she's back with Hellfire...those stories rocked the last time.

Are they still as good?

Posted:They are brilliant...

Lots have happened since whenever you read them. If I lived closer I'd lend them to you.

I'd start with the graphic novel by Grant Morrison called 'NEW X-MEN: E is for Extinction'. Morrisons run lasts for 7 graphic novels.
Then after that, Joss Whedon's 'ASTONISHING X-MEN'. Never really laughed out loud reading X-Men before but this managed it.

Both are very different and have come along way since - whenever you read them. But but of them are MUCH darker than the movies...
