You have two of my same Top 3, I would just replace Sentry with Prof X

Storm and Wolverine might make my top 10, but I don't think what they have been put through is quite that bad

As for Spidey I do not follow him or read any of his titles, no opinion on it.

Sentry is an easy top 5, does not make my top 3

Hellion and Jubilee IMO are just not important enough to warrant a top 3 pick, even if Jubilee is a sentimental favorite

  • Bishop: Fell on the the "wrong side" of superhero registration working with the O.N.E, Killing Xavier, Chasing down a baby took him out of mainstream continuity for the most part.
  • Storm: Whole wedding to Panther was a disaster with poorly executed separation. Been rather inactive last ten years. Glad to see writers have better plans for her.
  • Scarlet Witch & Quicksilver (tie): Both gone evil. Scarlet Witch on a much greater scale but Quicksilvers portrayal in X-Factor and stealing from the Inhumans was awfully low.

I think the x-books in particular have had a rough ten years.

Cyclops - now he's just Magneto with eye-beams

Rogue - Nothing like she was 20 years ago.

Nova - Being someone who isn't Richard Rider

I also think it's a safe bet Bendis is going to butcher GotG

I like a lot of Bendis when it comes to his independent work, but the Marvel stuff has left me with little hope.

Cyclops - They pretty much butchered his character over the years, especially making him somewhat of an enemy of the X-Men.

Storm - For the past ten years, they haven't really used her much in any of the stories. It seems like they are trying to get her back on track right now, but we'll have to see how long that will last.

Professor Xavier - First, they pretty much made him get kicked out of the X-Men, then he wasn't prevalent in the stories for over a decade and now they killed him off.
