His power is fucking awesome, just saying. never really liked his personality but power wise hes awesome

Does longneck or whatever count as an X man? Cause if so prolly him, if not Maggot is a good contender lol

Beak was really really really really lame when he had his "powers"...

post M-Day he was pretty cool though.

If we are going by personality then the clear answer is Cyclops. Damn that guy is annoying.

Definitely Beak.

#16 Posted by JROCK72 (412 posts) - - Show Bio

I have to say, I really disliked Skin. But Angel (not when he was Archangel) was really annoying.

Cyclops embodies the X-Men. Well, up until Utopia/AvX, IMO.

I dunno, he's pretty courageous, even if his power is pathetic. Psychologically he's a good X-Man, I'd argue.

Omerta. Average power and homophobic too.

Slipstream
Ink
Adam X - 90's at its worst...
Omega Sentinel - utter liability. Possessed/malfunctioned at least 3 times in the last five years.

What was Skin like in terms of personality/character? I've never really read Gen X.

Cypher's powers are awesome and extremely useful in getting a high paying job. lol His personality is okay, it makes him stand out from the rest of the New Mutants. I wish Warlock could just stay as his armor though.

I was never a Maggot fan, but at least he was distinct and somewhat original, even if he wasn't all that interesting.

Cecilia's actually one of my favorite X-men. I loved how she wasn't a fighter, and how she had such a refreshing perspective on the X-men's world. Her powers are pretty dull, but her personality's the thing I really like about her.

Largely indifferent to both; preferred Marrow. The fact that Cecilia just wanted to be a doctor, not mutant superhero, and was unable to have a normal life (despite looking perfectly normal) was probably the most interesting aspect of her character.

Turning Beak into your regular, square-jawed, muscular hero was the worst creative decision to ever hit the character. He was an average character at best post M-Day, losing everything that made him unique.

Yeah, that's pretty much what I liked about her, just that that gave her such a different perspective on the whole thing. She realized that she could help more people as a doctor than as a superhero, which in itself is still a pretty unique perspective for a mutant character to have.

Marrow I liked sometimes, but she was written pretty inconsistently overall.

that's what was cool about him. He had no powers and was probably less useful to a superhero team than a regular human, but that's what made him distinct and interesting. He was a mutant who posed absolutely no danger, yet still had to deal with some of the worst discrimination; so in that way, I think he showed a different side of the X-men's mission than we generally get to see, and that's more than what a lot of more useful or powerful characters do.

I really do love Beak. It was the whole package -- where he came from, his thought process, his attitude and how he kept people together. Beast said part of his mutant power was his ability to make friends -- sounds kind of corny, but it was true. How he and Angel (the girl, not the guy) managed to get along I will never know. Plus -- as weird as it was, it touched on teenage pregnancy although it wasn't taken all that seriously (outside of being harried by the responsibility of it all). Now that I think about it, I didn't enjoy Angel (the girl, not the guy) very much.

Outside of that, I would say Joseph. Just...no.

People always forget the fact that a mutation does not mean that they'll be like the X-Men, heroes who use their awesome powers to defend the weak and their people and uphold justice and their rights. I felt that during Morrison's run, he really delved into the mutation aspect of the theme of the X-Men. Mutation was an evolution. Whether it was a kid with a bird-like appearance but no bird-like powers, or a man who's mutation is only blue skin, or a kid who's neck is abnormally tall, or a man that can turn his skin translucent, the point is that not all mutations have to be cool or heroic that could help humanity or stop crime, they could be disfigured, bothersome, or unappealing. So claiming that Beak was the "worst x-man" is an understatement because he was never meant to be one of the mutants who's powers could be used offensively to fight evil, he was a great x-man who showed us that not all mutants' mutations are pretty or useful.

I've always believed that Beak losing his "powers" is his reward for all the things he had done with all he can.
