 Looking at my list I realize both how 80s-influenced my favorites are and how few of the male X-Men I really enjoy.

I'll be interested to see if my opinions shift during my re-read of all of the post-2000 books, especially since I'm going to be introduced to all of the Academy X characters for the first time.

Yeah, in this order. 1 - Iceman 2 - Shadowcat 3 - Magma 4 - Magneto 5- Rachel Summers 6 - Nightcrawler 7 - X-Man 8 - Elixir 9 The Stepford Cuckoos 10 - Hellion. I'd like to add an 11th, Vulcan. Because he was baddass

@krisis: Yea I only like a few male X-men as well. Though  think the 90s influence me more.

Thanks to all of the pink-hair shots of Pixie on your lists I skipped ahead in my read to a few issues with her, and I'm already in love :)

@krisis: haha YAY another Pixie fan in the making! I have a feeling I will love this unnamed mutant. I just love her design. I am not ashamed to say I gasped a little when I saw this for the first time.

P.S. Does anyone even remember Random? They've brought him back recently, but he's been more of a background character. He's an obvious product of the over-the-top badass anti-villains of the 90s, but I remember loving him in the old X-Factor book. I still have his action figure on display. Without fail, everyone asks who he is. And I pout.

@cmaprice: I remember Random! I was surprised that they explained him as well as they did re: the origin of his powers. I didn't realize he was back; I'd be interested to see where they take him in the new hyper-realistic world of X-books. 
 
I'm very tempted to compile everyone's top ten into a spreadsheet to see who our most favorite characters are. Since I just inexplicably awoke at 6am on a Saturday, maybe I'll do that. ;)

I just tallied our collective favorites, assigning 10 points for #1, 9 points for #2, et cetera. The few people who specified their lists were in no particular order got 5.5 points for each character (since AVG(1:10)=5.5) . 
 
Our favorites (so far) are:  

 #1 - Kitty Pryde
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
  

(huge margin)
 
2. Colossus
3. Nightcrawler 
4. Iceman 
5. Wolverine 
6. Jean Grey 
7. Rogue 
8. Cyclops 
9. Magneto 
10. Storm 
11. Emma Frost 
12. Angel 
13. Gambit 
14. Madrox 
15. Beast 
 
Fun fact: Storm is all or nothing - people never had her lower than #3, which means she made the list with the fewest votes. 
 
Question: Does absence make our hearts grow fonder? Both of our top two were dead for over two years (with our third headed in that direction), and a third of our top 15 have had hiatuses of >2 years since 1990.
