After 1.5 million votes, you decided which X-Men were just a bit more uncanny than the rest. Now it's time to get x-cited and read the x-hilarating results below - here are the 25 best X-Men ever!

 

25. Angel

undefined

One of the original X-Men, and probably the most initially useless, Angel was a dude who had bird wings and served as proto-Wolverine (in that he was a dude who was in love with Jean Grey, despite her relationship with Cyclops) before everyone's favorite regenerating Canadian with dumb hair entered the picture. Most people these days seem a lot more familiar with his Archangel persona, after being taken by Apocalypse and made one of his Four Horsemen in exchange for getting some sweet-as-hell metal wings. Also, blue skin, because the X-Men universe didn't have enough people with blue skin already.

 

24. Sabretooth

undefined

Sabretooth has always been the yin to Wolverine's bone-clawed yang: a beastial bud who is more animal than man (and was also a fellow Weapon X-er) and also has really stupid looking hair. But at least Wolverine had some sweet metal claws, instead of Sabretooth's well-manicured fingernails.

 

23. Havok

undefined

The weirdest thing about Havok (other than that EXTREMELY dumb thing where you replace a "C" with a "K" to be kool) is that he was one of the first to introduce the concept into the X-Men universe that relatives had immunity against one another's mutant powers - namely between him and his fellow beam-blastin' bro Cyclops. He was a key member of X-Factor's run, but more importantly, he sported a number of super-dumb-looking costumes that often involved a "head sock."

 

22. Juggernaut

undefined

Juggernaut's pretty great - he's basically a huge, superstrong, unstoppable monster of a person who is bizarrely Professor Xavier's step-brother. He even inspired a meme that was pretty okay for like 5 seconds (now immortalized on-screen thanks to Vinnie Jones and Brett Ratner). The only drawback to Juggernaut is the dumb explanation for his powers. You see, he's not a mutant - he found a magical ruby while he was in Korea and that turned him into the wrecking ball of a person he is today. Which is dumb, because you don't need magic rubies when the entire comic you're in has a built-in reason for everyone to have powers.

 

21. X-23

undefined

X-23 was designed to be the cool female equivalent of Wolverine (she's literally a clone of him, minus the facial hair genes) - except with one less claw on each hand and a lot more (initially) evil. Like many villains before her though, she was eventually seduced by the Light side and became a much more boring good guy (and briefly Captain Universe, because that's just a thing that can happen here).
