Cyclops. But really future teams put them to shame.

Cyclops. Not to nitpick, but shouldn't Xavier be on here?

Jean grey.

Jean Grey. I was always surprised by how much more active she could be compared to the other heroines of that era. It depended on the writer, of course, but she had Marvel's first official Girl Power Moment, which always makes me smile.

I'm not surprised to see Cyclops in the lead on this, nor am I trying to say he doesn't deserve it; but, out of curiosity, is this thread only on the X-men board, or is it on the Avengers board too? because I can't help but feel that that would make a difference..

Hmmm...Considering that this entire lineup is always considered X-Men, even when operating operate from the team and this seems posed to X-Men fans, why do you think it would make a difference?

oh, I just noticed that Beast was in second place, and I wondered if maybe he would have gotten more votes if this pole had been presented to Avengers fans too. Maybe it wouldn't make a real difference, but it did make me curious..

Beast is awesome...

Jean Grey. She has had the rawest deal out of all them. She, being the founding female member, who was too powerful for the books and had to be killed off twice. Not fair. When all those other original guys have had constant spotlight and attention over the 5 decades they have been around.

Honorary mention to Sage for being a part of the First Class but not having any history with the team until the new millenium.

From the original cast, I'd say Cyclops was easily my favorite when I was growing up.

#27 Posted by Ms. Omega (4425 posts) - - Show Bio

Rogue has always been my favorite.

Cyclops, not even close.

Rogue has always been my favorite.

Rogue was not among the O5.

Are we talking in general including how they are now or just at the time?

Because I would go for Cyclops back in the day (but now he is just annoying). But overall I would pick beast especially like he was under Morrison's run.

#32 Posted by johnkmccubbin91 (3486 posts) - - Show Bio

Easy choice, Beast. Surprised Cyclops is winning though.

I really like shape shifters so Iceman; next up would be Jean Grey and Beast.
