@oldnightcrawler: Yeah I've noticed that he uses aces too a lot (in most of the comics I have).

there were cards on sale for 50 cent a pack at the dollar store the other day, maybe he uses those <.<

He mostly uses Aces, thats alot of other cards waste. He should use the whole pack but seeing a light up number 2 card is just silly.

A flying number 2 card is no less silly than a flying number 3 card. Maybe he saves the more appealing and symbolic cards for fights and the rest of the deck for doors and leave notes on! :P

No the joke was "Flaming number 2" card. XD

... -_-

@papad1992:

x-men the all-women book thats still new, should that really be there???

perhaps not, but it's line-up includes some of the oldest and longest serving X-Men... why should it not be?

Some omissions seem fairly reasonable. I mean its 50 years of X-MEN... not 50 years of splinter teams. PADs X-Factor was perhaps the best x-book in the last ten years... but how many x-men were actually on the team? Darwin? Havok and Polaris right at the end? everyone else was a peripheral x-person, not an x-man.

Generation X was born in Uncanny and Adjectiveless... and did spawn X-Man Emma and star X-Man Jubilee and X-Man Banshee.

Who would argue the presence of the New Mutants - the original next X-Men (as opposed to the All-New All-Different 2nd team ;) )? With them, who needs Cable's original X-Force since more than half of them were New Mutants.

Though she only (only ?) appears four times... nice to see Storm as the most prominent of the female x-men. though Rogue appears more often, Storm is more featured - at least in three of the covers.

Well 50 years of X-Men, my interpretation, to me means 50 years of characters, stories, and concepts. The Ultimate universe, AoA universe, etc, those deserve a spot of recognition as well but for me, there is too much that happens mainstream in the 616 universe that takes precedence.

PAD's X-Factor was a major book of the mid 2000s and early 2010s, nearly a decade of stories, characters, and concepts that either directly dealt with the X-Men or was X-Men-related.

I never said we needed Cable's X-Force... an X-Force is needed to be present but the incarnation I was thinking was either the Uncanny X-Force or Kyle and Yost's version. I was saving Cable's appearance so that it would run with the Hope/Bishop story because that was also an integral part of the X-Men's history.

That is a pretty glaring omission. Nightcrawler should be there.

I know right!

I feel like it's modern and contemporary concept enough to have the most recent spot on this poster because it symbolizes a lot and is another step forward towards the future for the women of the X-Men, who have been an integral part since the X-Men's inception.

Halle Berry has been a terrible Storm from Day 1. She's too weak.

It's not that Halle Berry is weak in her portrayal... the writing of her character is just horrible. There's no spice of life, no passion for peace, no strong-minded assertiveness in Berry's Storm. It could be her acting, or the films dialogue, or the director, or something else entirely. All I know is that Storm does not live up to her fiery/loving personality that is ever present in the comics.

Halle Berry doesn't come off as commanding as Storm should. She's basically a pixie.

With a pixie cut. A strong character needs a strong appearance.

Jubilee is a fickle character... I loved Gen X and thought that when she left to join Gen X was a good move. But since the end of Gen X, Jubilee has been in and out of the X-Men's light. The biggest moments for Jubilee since Gen X's end would be when she lost her powers, when she became a vampire, and now when she's is apart of Wood's X-Men team. So there is a pros and cons to Jubilee's departure. But I do not think that it is the worse portrayal of her character... if anything, I think when she turned into a vampire is the worse depiction of her character.
