From the following list, who or what do you want to improve in the X-Men universe?





Kitty Pryde



Emma Frost

Jean Grey


Story Arcs:

Dark Phoenix Saga

Grant Morrison's Run on New X-Men

Joss Whedon's run on Astonishing X-Men

Days of Future Past

Age of Apocalypse

House of M

Avengers vs. X-Men

You can add more to this list or you don't have to answer all of these questions.

The characters are great when written right id o wish they would stop the whole WE ALL HATE SCOTT bullshit, id like to see the respect he had once back

Story arcs i think its pretty easy here, Grant Morrisons Run (liked bits and pieces but alot could of been cut and changed) and AvX

Okay I love Jennifer :) she is an amazing actress and she has a really good personality BUT i feel like her fame is starting to take over the whole X-men movie franchise. I noticed that Mystique is slowly turning into Wolverine in the movies. She is starting to overshadow the rest of the X-men..... i mean come on the Apocalypse movie will be in 1980's , i think they made this decision so that she can be in it. Honestly Rebecca is actually better..

Do you feel the same way?

Mystique's character is great in all the X-men movies (well, all the ones that are good), and I'm actually a big fan of how they changed her origin to be intrinsically linked to Xavier's, as well as Beast's and Magneto's.

not only is it just a good story, but it makes it not so black and white. Mystique's character and perspective become as central to the story as Xavier's and Magneto's, and she can present a lot of perspectives that they simply can't, making the whole thing have a lot more dimension and depth.

And, so far had no issues whatsoever with Lawrence's portrayal of the character. In 'First Class it may have seemed drastically different from the Mystique we know from the comics, but in the comics we never saw her so young and she didn't have the back-story with Xavier. And in 'DoFP, we see how she's started to evolve into a character that is much more like she was in the comics, so to me it feels like we're getting the best of both worlds.

And it gives what's meant to be a story of otherness a perspective that isn't one of two or three white dudes, so there's that.

i pretty much agree, i didnt think she over shadowed anyone and she seems more ruthless she will be a villain in upcoming films im sure, they are trying to show where the hatred for humans comes from in this cinematic world they are crafting

and i did feel like Prof X was the main character so yea kudos on that!

I do want to see Cyclops and Storm recast and brought into the new movies but thats just me ^^

I created this thread to see if people agree with me or disagree with me. You also can post your own statements about the X-Men franchise.

1) Cyclops saved the species, a lot of people tend to think this is true. I don't. I think Cyclops contributed to saving the mutant race, but didn't saved the mutant race. Hope Summers, Scarlet Witch and the Phoenix Force save the mutant race.

Not sure which your asking if i agree with but I Agree Cyclops Saved the species how the story was written if he would not have made his stand then Hope, and the Scarlet witch would of never did what they did thus Cyclops was right :-p

2) Uncanny Avengers is one of the worst X-Men titles, if you can call it X-Men title.

Not an X man title

3) Emma Frost has help Cyclops become the man he today and she done more for Cyclops than Jean Grey ever did. A common statement made by a lot of X-Men fans. I think this completely untrue, it sounds like people are giving Emma Frost too much credit.

Eh i think it was way more the Emma, hes been through alot darker times with her so yea

4) Marvel never should of cancel Cable and X-Force.

Totally agree

5) Rogue and Gambit should get back together.


6) Emma and Scott breaking up was best thing for X-Men comics, cause nothing happened in the relationship. They didn't moved forward at all.


7) We should see more of Boom Boom and Warpath in the spotlight.


Do you agree with these statements or not. Share your own views please.

Wouldn't Darwin's powers have fit better for Trask's Sentinel Program? Adapting to survive... you can't put them down. They were pretty OP in DOFP already, I just think his powers make sense than Mystique's shape-shifting.

using Mystiques power they basically duplicated darwins, and yes it would of been a better fit but then the movie wouldnt of been able to exist cause well darwins dead :-p

What then?

A point often debated is whether the X-Men should be in a separate Universe. We argue the merits of doing it but rarely the cause, which is that the X-Men mythos is built on prejudices against a specific type of super-humans.

So lets say we achieve the goal, the world no longer hates and fears all mutants instinctively. All mutants are judged by their own merits.

What comes next?


Can the X-Men even survive without the hate, fear and prejudice?

Not the X men we know and love today. Without this special feat they would be just another Avengers or Super friends or wtf ever, the dream can never happen in marvel U cause the X men need it to thrive, to have a reason a cause to be, it would be like removing all the super villains and asking what the avengers would be like lol

Darwin!!! sure shaw blew him to pieces but come on his power is to survive so im sure he could survive that and apoc could pull him and make him into something evil, maybe havok or banshee too (sure banshee is dead but that didnt matter none in Uncanny avengers recently)

Then i think some one popular like idk Cyclops, or maybe even Gambit (channing debuts as a horsemen) or Cable? and then work them as part of the main team in later movie spin offs

Also i thought Angel was like 30ish in the X3 movie so maybe you could wing him being a horsemen they did change the future so it wasnt like X 3 ever happened thus he could have metal wings in the future period

ive always been under the impression it was Apoc, but i cant cite any facts or anything to back it up just what i think lol

I just want to point out that during much of the Claremont age of X men (70,80 and even 90) the X men did several Cross overs with Spiderman and the Fantastic Four (even having mutant children) sooo a cross over would be good and i dont think the whole love teh FF and hate mutants is stupid. The ff is just four people, if you can control them then its all good you can trust a person, i trust alot of people. But mutants could be anyone, the idea that ANYONE no matter who they are will get powers well its a good chance some crazy fucker (like magneto) will eventually get powers cause its something you cant control or stop from happening its not a one time thing that happened to people that you trust type of thing

  • Jean has been made into a Mary Sue Character since her first return (esp by morrison) and should say dead
  • Morrison run is one of the worst overall
  • Despite the good stories wheldon wrote his inability to make a deadline should keep people from ever wanting him back
  • Bendis really isnt as bad as people say
  • Aaron doesnt really suck either, just all the mutants he made does (so did morrisons btw)
  • Phantom X should of never been created
  • The X verse will be better without wolverine (at least now he used to be a great character)
  • The JGS is stupid and i hope it blows up (and stays that way)
  • No X men title SHOULD EVER have a members name infront of it (ala wolverine and the x men)
  • Some times I want to slap storm
  • Generation X was the best student group ever written in the X verse
  • the Original New Mutants and Gen X should actually be on X teams by now
  • No one character should ever be in two titles

thats all for now anyway lol
