When the X-Men made their debut back in 1963, Professor X's team consisted of only 5 characters: Cyclops, Jean Grey, Iceman, Beast, and Angel. Fast forward 51 years and the iconic team has expanded just a wee bit. Dozens upon dozens of characters have technically been part of the roster, and, seeing as the new X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer dropped this week, we want to know who your favorite X-Men character really is. Will it be one of the classics? Will Wolverine's popularity slice apart the competition? Or will it be a close race between quite a few of them? We want to hear from you, so get in the poll and cast your vote!

CLICK HERE TO HAVE NIGHTCRAWLER TELEPORT YOU TO THE POLL! (We won't judge you if you say BAMF! out loud as you click it)

We've added 20 X-Men to the list. Look, we know there's a whole lot of characters and it's possible your favorite might not be on there. So, instead of posting a generic "WHERE'S ___?" kind of comment, just go ahead and vote "other." After doing so, tell us who you have in mind and why you think they're more awesome than the 20 we've provided on the poll. Got it? Cool. As for the poll, voting will remain open until Thursday morning (ET).

Thursday's updated article will not only have the poll results and explain why the winner deserves the praise, but it'll also include exceptional posts made for the winning character and, if possible, impressive posts for the runners ups, too! So, don't simply teleport away after casting your vote. Leap into the comments and explain why a certain mutant is receiving your support. After all, there's a chance it'll convince others to vote for the person and potentially get featured in Thursday's article.

Be sure to check the homepage on Thursday to see which X-Men character wins and if your post will be highlighted!

I think this quote from the Marvel Heroes MMO best sums up my vote:

"You want us at war with the humans, and now you have it. I take no joy in that. I take no pleasure in it. But we either chose to win this war and live free, or lie down and let you enslave us. Torture us. KILL us. Humans and mutants cannot live together in peace. Your God has selected the Mutant as the dominant species on the planet! I am Magneto. I am mutant. And you will not take this world from me."

Can the winner be anyone except Gambit?

Well okay Wolverine will win 100% but this guy will so be number 2

Tough call it's between Nightcrawler, Colossus, and Cyclops. I'll go with Kurt.

#5 Posted by fables87 (1009 posts) - - Show Bio

I like the them all really, but if I had to choose it's Beast.

The best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be. The ORIGINAL X-Man. The BEST X-Man. And the X-Man who has been plagued by horrible writing these past couple years. But he WILL over come. Just like he always does. Cyclops is my FAVORITE X-Man. He is a leader and a martyr. Without Cyclops, it is NOT the X-Men. He IS the X-Men.

that... is a hard question...

If I had to choose it would be Cyclops or Nightcrawler

NIGHTCRAWLER!!!!!

The man gave up being in heaven to save the xmen

#10 Posted by longbowhunter (7127 posts) - - Show Bio

I voted for Beast. With a lot of characters it's brains or brawn. Hank McCoy has both in spades.

I cast my vote for X-23. I know I am in a minority, but I think she is absolutely awesome.

#12 Posted by fsfaith (7 posts) - - Show Bio

Laura Kinney! X-23

#13 Posted by EnSabahNurX (2317 posts) - - Show Bio

X-23, been my favorite since her appearance on x-men evolution.

#14 Posted by orionbolt (28 posts) - - Show Bio

BEAST

#15 Edited by jordangons (2 posts) - - Show Bio

Nightcrawler & Gambit... And of course the obvious choice of Wolverine. But I gotta give props to my much under-recognized Kurt Wagner.

Does anybody think its gonna be anyone but Wolverine?

#19 Posted by Wardishy (731 posts) - - Show Bio

I voted Nightcrawler but this was such a hard vote for me. It could easily have gone to Wolverine, Kitty, or Rogue.

Kitty Pryde closely followed by Psylocke and Beast

#24 Edited by Iron Fist Angel (230 posts) - - Show Bio

Pretty obvious who my choice is, lol. Angel is my all-time favourite fictional character and the reason I still read comics at 40.

Iceman. Young Bobby in All new X-Men is the funniest guy in Marvel.

BIG X-Men fan but I actually don't have a particular favorite X-Men.

#29 Posted by SlickyMike88 (224 posts) - - Show Bio

My answer will always be Psylocke , I love ninja's

#30 Edited by Nekobaghira (6 posts) - - Show Bio

Gambit is my favorite - I adore him.

#31 Posted by BlackShadowCat (21 posts) - - Show Bio

Kitty Pryde. She's been my favourite since I seen her in X-Men: Evolution as a kid. I started collecting comics which she featured in after that ^^

Not sure how I feel about her movie portrayal though. She has never had a chance to really shine on screen yet.

#32 Posted by bj365 (38 posts) - - Show Bio

All time favorite has to be Professor-X

#33 Edited by ShockTrooper (17 posts) - - Show Bio

That boy Cyclops!

#34 Edited by TheAmazingImmortalMan (3204 posts) - - Show Bio

Wolverine.........talk all the 'overexposed' nonsense you want I love the character.

#35 Posted by BlackColossus (9 posts) - - Show Bio

Really?

#36 Edited by BlackColossus (9 posts) - - Show Bio

No...REALLY?

#37 Edited by Jokercell (11 posts) - - Show Bio

Cyclops got me into reading X-Men in the first place. Then he dropped off for a long time but now he is my favorite member again with the new Uncanny X-Men run.

#39 Edited by derf_jenkins (402 posts) - - Show Bio

There are no bad answers anyone has given. My personal favorite is Wolverine if we're talking as an individual character. He works well in most any setting. If we're saying as a member of the X-Men group, I'll go Cyclops.

#40 Posted by Spideysense44 (3467 posts) - - Show Bio

Gambit and X-23

This right here. Doesn't get any better than Scott.

Alrightly then... MY favorite X-Men character? Hmmmm.... Well, umm:

Moonstar, Nightcrawler, Kitty Pryde, Pixie, Boom Boom, Cannonball, Iceman, Rogue, M, and Sage.

Those are my top picks!

#43 Edited by Rabbitearsblog (5893 posts) - - Show Bio

Colossus! My favorite Russian!

#44 Posted by RideASpaceCowboy (527 posts) - - Show Bio

Xavier himself is the greatest Marvel superhero bar none. Just as Superman's greatest strengths are his absolute moral certitude and fortitude, so too is Xavier more powerful as a philosopher and visionary than as a mutant, despite being one of the most gifted mutants on the planet.

Ignoring, of course, the fact that he's a pedophile.

#45 Posted by RideASpaceCowboy (527 posts) - - Show Bio

A close number two for me would be the younger, more revolutionary version of the Xavier-character: Quentin Quire.

Pete Wisdom, 'cos he deflowered Kitty Pryde!

#50 Posted by tximinoman (245 posts) - - Show Bio

If I have to choose just one I'll go with Nightcrawler but my top 10 will be him, Storm, Kitty Pryde, Wolverine, Psylocke, Iceman, Fantomex, Quentin Quire, Colossus and Magneto
