When the X-Men made their debut back in 1963, Professor X's team consisted of only 5 characters: Cyclops, Jean Grey, Iceman, Beast, and Angel. Fast forward 51 years and the iconic team has expanded just a wee bit. Dozens upon dozens of characters have technically been part of the roster, and, seeing as the new X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer dropped this week, we want to know who your favorite X-Men character really is. Will it be one of the classics? Will Wolverine's popularity slice apart the competition? Or will it be a close race between quite a few of them? We want to hear from you, so gaze at the options above and then cast your vote!

We've added 20 X-Men to the list. Look, we know there's a whole lot of characters and it's possible your favorite might not be on there. So, instead of posting a generic "WHERE'S ___?" kind of comment, just go ahead and vote "other." After doing so, tell us who you have in mind and why you think they're more awesome than the 20 we've provided on the poll. Got it? Cool. As for the poll, voting will remain open until Thursday morning (ET).

Thursday's updated article will not only have the poll results and explain why the winner deserves the praise, but it'll also include exceptional posts made for the winning character and, if possible, impressive posts for the runners ups, too! So, don't simply teleport away after casting your vote. Leap into the comments and explain why a certain mutant is receiving your support. After all, there's a chance it'll convince others to vote for the person and potentially get featured in Thursday's article.

Be sure to check the homepage on Thursday to see which X-Men character wins and if your post will be highlighted!

Magneto is a close 2nd but My favorite character related to the X-Men has always been Juggernaut. He's just that badass

It was between Cyclops and Magneto but I chose Magneto. I'm only a fan of post AvX Cyclops so Magneto wins.

This is so hard. It really depends an the era. In the 90s when I started reading comics Cyclops was my favorite. Later Rogue became number one. When Emma became a core member of the team I was very attached to her (and still am). And then there's also Magneto...

But I think my all-time favorite X-Men is not even on the list. I really love Magik, because she is such an unusual character. Her power set is amazing and she was going through such an incredble metaphorphis from "Snowflake" to ruler of Limbo.

So, I voted for Cyke (mainly against Wolverine, because he's overated) but Illyana is my favorite^^

#20 Posted by Perfect 10 (980 posts) - - Show Bio

jean grey all the way. the first x-woman and the TRUE first x-man as professor x met her long before he met cyclops. she inspired him to open his school, without her there would be no x-men. sadly she doesnt get that respect she deserves.

Nightcrawler & Cyclops, but I've always has more of a connection to the fuzzy elf.

Was gambit or magneto for me. As a child Gambit was easily my favorite but i like the depth of magneto better

#24 Posted by RemiRose (8 posts) - - Show Bio

My favourite X-men are Fantomex and Dr. Nemesis. I choose the answer: other.

#25 Posted by Peregrine (163 posts) - - Show Bio

Jean Grey...hands down my favorite comic book character of all time

#26 Edited by comicbookfan93 (397 posts) - - Show Bio

Pyslocke, Gambit, Magik and Rogue are my top favourites

#27 Edited by SlamAdams (287 posts) - - Show Bio

Chose Other. If Deadpool counts, then Deadpool. If not, Madrox as a close second

#28 Posted by ArturoCalaKayVee (11130 posts) - - Show Bio

The best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be. The ORIGINAL X-Man. The BEST X-Man. And the X-Man who has been plagued by horrible writing these past couple years. But he WILL over come. Just like he always does. Cyclops is my FAVORITE X-Man. He is a leader and a martyr. Without Cyclops, it is NOT the X-Men. He IS the X-Men.

nightcrawler but many of the X-men ladies come a close second.

Had to pick Cyclops but such a hard choice. Magneto, Beast, and Colossus all would've been comfortable choices.

Obviously its Wolverine, not only is he one of (if not the) most widely recognized members , but he's one of the only x-men, that really speaks of mutation. He's a savage creature, he evolves(as a mutant should) ,but not gracefully , its a pain ridden, disgusting process of change, that only a few could endure,dark humor surrounds this pointy haired, short, stubbled killer, he doesn't take crap, but one of his "friends" (wade wilson) is basically a massive crap producer! his personality is a popular one among comics as well. of all the x-men (and gosh darn there's a lot of them) he speaks out truer to his representation then any other to date.

Why would you not list Bishop?

Cyclops is a close second, but I had to go with "other."

Kitty Pryde. Who knew a scared girl who can walk through walls would soon be more dangerous than Wolverine?

There is no better, no truer, no more important X-Man than Cyclops. I even used him in a leadership paper I wrote for class one time. He’s tactical, powerful, and above all else, he strives for the survival of mutantkind nonstop. Sure, a lot of people think he went nutso during AvX, but I was team X-Men the whole time.
