The 80's is my favourite period but I decided to start in the 60's since that was when the X-Men started. It only felt right to start from there and make my way down. It also makes the journey that much more special but I admit the progress is slow and unfortunately eventually it'll get even slower since at one point I will be reading Uncanny X-Men, New Mutants and X-Factor at the same time along with various limited series. I've been asked to review 3 a day but for my that will be very difficult since it takes me about an hour and half to read an issue, write the summary and then my thoughts. With my other writings (I write an X-Men fanfic series and a sci-fi series) and life in general I simply don't have the time.

I know, everything takes time when reading X-Men comics, cause there so much history. I was reading some comics from mid 2000's. I think it was the X-Men series from Chuck Austin all the way to Mike Carey X-Men run. I still haven't finish reading it yet. It doesn't help with the X-Men comics being good now, cause there not much time to read the comics from the past. It was ok when Matt Fraction, Kieron Gillen and Jason Aaron was the X-Men writers. They were terrible and I drop there titles for while. That gave me time to read the titles from the past.

I always say, take your time and work on your own pace.

I think you should write some comic book reviews on comic vine. The detail you put into this thread, could go into a comic book review.

@hysteria I really like your thread. You put so much effort into reviewing the comics you read. You mention early, your not going to do the early 90's. Can I ask why ? I loved the early 90's. I would loved a person review the comics.

It is because I am using the Essential X-Men graphic novels and unfortunately it stops at UXM #280 and XM #3. I have a few issues after that but nothing to really continue reviewing them at a regular pace. Sadly there will be no Essential X-Men v.12 since Marvel have stopped the line. I will try and buy some more between that time but I have at least a year and a bit since I have a lot of side stuff to go through as well. I will be going through the Wolverine and Excalibur series from that time.

Oh I see. You could buy graphic novels of the early 90's on Amazon. There quite a few on there. Some are expensive though. I think X-Men fans should always read the X-Men comics from the early 90's. It was such a great period for X-Men comics.

It does take time read all the comics, I'm surprise you started from the 1960's. I thought the 1980's would be better time to start.

Any ways. You done a good job so far. I look forward to reading your upcoming reviews.

"What Carol Saw..."

Them two are my favourite, I like the way they speak about Dazzler in issue 23. It's funny the way they speak about her costume.

That and the way they keep referring to "beating" Pixie... poor girl!

I agree, poor Pixie

Well Hope Summers doesn't have TK, but:

I'm of the belief that Psylocke's TK blades can touch Kitty since their not entirely physical. Also if the Psychic is strong enough (Rachel or Jean) they can manipulate her molecules so she can't phase or mimic the effects of any of the many tech devises that have stopped her from phasing in the past.

Storm beats current Psylocke and at best draws Rachel but other wise she has no protection from any of them just yanking her out of the air. Storm beating Emma was cool, but unless the telekinetic just stands still behind a shield they'd beat her.....Rachel and Jean have enough strength/control to probably shield themselves and beat her at once.

Juggernaut can be moved....if he's standing still. But once he's in motion they can't stop him...maybe redirect him, but not stop him outright, he's magical and his power revolves around being unstoppable in motion.

Apocalypse....Well what exactly is stopping Apocalypse from being moved? Jean through Krakoa into space, so unless Apocalypse weighs more then Krakoa she can move him. The only outside factors are Celestial Tech and whatever form of Telekinesis Apocalypse himself might possess but those don't have any way of being factored into things. I don't see it happening on panel because he's just too bada$$ to be thrown across the sky, but we can't exactly measure TK vs Bada$$ness

Hope does have telekinesis, she had it in Cable and X-Force

I think that in that case she just copied Cable's telekines, it's mentioned in issue 16

She used it again on Bishop in the Cable solo series. Doesn't she need to touch people, to copy there powers, in Cable and X-Force she didn't touch Cable when she was using telekinesis

I supposed a better question would be. Can Rachel, Jean or Psylocke beat Juggernaut. They need to remove his helmet, into order to beat him.

I supposed when it comes to Jean and Apocalypse. it's who has better telekinesis.

I loved the Blue team and Gold team

1) Gold team would win. They have Jean, Storm and Iceman. The Gold team was more powerful.

2) Not Sure. I guess the writers wanted to keep her separate from Scott and Logan. It was nice to have her in team with Storm anyway.

3) I guess Storm became leader of the X-Men, cause she was a leader of the X-Men in the 1980's. Charles trusted in Storm and Cyclops the most.

4) I don't think she was supposed to be in the X-Force or Excalibur. She join the X-Men in the 1980's. It made sense for her be a member of blue team. She was the youngest member, just like Kitty was before.

5) Do you mean, in that poster, not sure. Do you mean when he was locked up in the X-Mansion.

6) I don't think we have stats, the Blue team was better. X-Men comic was much better.

Blue team was cooler and had better chatterers

Rachel Grey, Psylocke, Hope Summers and the real Jean Grey, not teen Jean Grey, all have telekinesis. How effective is there telekinesis ?

Jean Grey has no Phoenix

Against Kitty

If Kitty is phased, can Rachel, Psylocke, Hope or Jean use there telekinesis on her, can they moved her. They can throw things at her. If she phased though a wall or the ground. They can move the ground or wall. If they can't, can they beat her. Kitty did beat Emma in Astonishing X-Men. She proven herself against a telepath.

Against Storm

Storm is consider one of the most powerful X-Ladies, just behind Jean and maybe Magik. If Storm is fighting one of the ladies above. She throwing Lighting bolts or tornadoes at them. Could Jean, Psylocke, Rachel and Hope use there telekinesis on her.

What if Storm is shielding herself with her Tornadoes. Could any of the telepaths move her. If they can't, how can they beat her.

I mean if any of the telepaths fought Storm alone

Against Juggernaut and Against Apocalypse

I have seen Psylocke move Colossus quite easily with her telekinesis in X-Men Legacy. Can she and the other telepaths move the Juggernaut. I mean individually. If they were to fight him on there own.

Could they move Apocalypse too. If Jean was to fight Apocalypse, could she moved him. She can throw things at him. Can she actually moved him.

What do you guys think . Please share your views.
