I dislike how everyone thinks he is the "X-Man" when Nightcrawler, Wolverine, Colossus, Storm, and Kitty are more important to the X-Men IMO.
Interesting you say that because it's not often said but one could certainly argue the sacrifices and actions of those characters and some others as well could make them more important to the X-Men. That mentality that Scott is the X-Men seems to be a more common thing lately. We already know that the X-Men will do just fine without him. There have been numerous other people in leadership positions among them.
Personally I don't think I could ever really be a fan of his. I will always respect him as the first X-Man and leader of the X-men though.

If the planet doesn't explode from a asteroid collision and instead it's something more like a Zombie Apocalypse.... I'll be ready.
I'm a member of another site that has a large number of Finnish people. It got me curious about the country and I found out a while back about the Winter War. If you don't know about it check out what Simo Hayha and others did to the Russians. When the few take on the many....
