Beast


WadeAnthony

I actually kinda like current Beast but damn if he wasn't the most annoying whiny ass post AvX. Bye Beast.


clam_media

For a guy who left the X-men because Scott had created X-Force… it’s cute that he is now part of X-Force. Hank is the wOoOOooorst


CaptainWitten82

This round was even closer than the previous one with the lead switching multiple times between the top 2. But ultimately it was Professor X who finished the round on top with 15.77% of the vote. Who should go next? Round 1 - Sebastian Shaw (50.90%) Round 2 - Sabretooth (11.11%) Round 3 - Professor X (15.77%) Link to Round 4 - https://strawpoll.com/gh93vhhp3

I'm shocked at how many people dislike Shaw. He is a fine character.


bebebluemirth

Shaw is arguably the biggest SOB in all of mutantdom, maybe rivaled only by his son Shinobi.


cqandrews

Beast, Shaw, and Sinister are my favorite characters, I'm noticing a pattern


MonkeyCube

Do people dislike him, or find uninteresting compared to the other characters here? I can only think of three interesting Shaw stories off the top of my head.

We would rather see Chuck die before Mister Sinister and I'm here for it


10567151

Holy shit Jubilee, Banshee and Bishop beat out Charles Xavier the founder of the x-men?!?! Okay then......


DoctorP0nd

In the words of Kate Pryde, “Professor X is a Jerk”


10567151

So memes is the answer, also Xavier is not exactly the biggest jerk left remaining I'd argue. Although this brings up an interesting point everyone is voting on different criteria I imagine. I'm voting for the character who is the least memorable in storylines, how are you deciding to vote?


Odd_Agent9293

>g point everyone is voting on different criteria I imagine. I'm voting for the character who is the least memorable in storylines, how are you deciding to vote? At this stage I'm personally voting for the ones who make me don't read something.I can see why Professor X was voted out aside from the memes. He's one of those characters who tends to grow stale, has been a victim of bad retcons, or does enough devious/dumb shit for people to have any sustained faith in him. I like Chucks, but I think he would be one of those characters who would be better used if he stayed dead for a good while.


10567151

I think Hickman made Xavier a far more fascinating character. One of the things I am definitely looking forward to in Immortal X-men is how Xavier is going to deal with the loss of power and more people knowing about Moira. I guess I just think there is far more potential for Xavier's character than others but hey it's going to be interesting as this goes along to get a feel for how this sub thinks.


Odd_Agent9293

I agree with you, Hickman has done Xavier a great service and hopefully Immortal X-men can show him in a new light. The thing is, when the Krakoa arc comes to an end what can they do with him? We are speaking of years at least, but to me Xavier has run the full gamut outside of the Krakoa status-quo. I would love to see a humbled cyclops fully take the reigns again at some point, and leave Chucks examine what his legacy will be as he rides into the sunset, so to speak.


10567151

Regarding what happens to Xavier at the end of Krakoa..... I would like to go back to the teasers for Hickman's x-men run. One that doesn't make sense was a memorial for Charles Xavier, I think Hickman was planning to kill him off.


SheevTheSenate66

>I think Hickman made Xavier a far more fascinating character Yes, in that he amplified his douchebaggery tenfold. He’s not just an asshole that acts like a saint now, now he actually walks and talks like the asshole he is and that’s refreshing


SakmarEcho

I’m voting based on who I like the least, and I hate the professor.


DoctorP0nd

Honestly, I didn’t vote for Xavier last round but I get the reasoning of others. I’m voting just based on whose stories I enjoy reading the most.


mr-manganese

Jubilee is better than Xavier


M0nicaRambeau

You ain’t never lied.


WadeAnthony

He may be the founder but I have never heard anyone say Xavier is my favorite in any X-Men medium. They love Patrick Stewart but not so much Xavier. I heard people say they like Bishop and Jubilee tho.


10567151

Fair enough, however this isn't voting on who their favorite is, it's about voting on who the least favorite is and I think given how Xavier is represented across all the different variations and interpretations of the X-Men and how Xavier is involved in so many classic stories I thought less represented characters would fall quicker.


WadeAnthony

That falls in line what what I said.. If he's nobodies favorite of course he's gonna be the least favorite. In those classic stories, I don't see how he's the favorite out of the entire cast of characters for anyone- this goes for the cartoons also. Early Stan Lee stories are boring, early Claremont he's a jerk and flies off to space early on and as the comics keep going they pile on jerk status more and more. Meanwhile, I'd say if you grew up in the 90s Bishop and Jubilee were favorites or at least well liked. Jubs was like Wolverine sidekick, showed up his book often, part of Gen X, never really had a poor personality maybe vamp powers was a bit much but always likeable. Bishop had that badass status, big guns and energy powers. That x-cutioner's song double page of Bishop, Cable and Logan still stands out in my mind to this day. Banshee is ehhhh but at least never said "i hate Banshee" in any storyline haha. Just how I see it.


10567151

> That falls in line what what I said.. If he's nobodies favorite of course he's gonna be the least favorite. Well my thinking was sort of like, not everyone has Xavier in their top 10 or anything but most people would recognize Xavier or at least enjoy stories that involve Xavier that he would be in top 20. Meanwhile even if there is one or two hardcore Banshee fans, that doesn't mean he makes the most top 20s, am I explaining myself here or just seem like I am talking nonsense lol. > early Claremont he's a jerk and flies off to space early on I completely disagree I think Claremont actually write Xavier as an interesting character, he got love interests, he showed some weakness, his days training the New Mutants, trying to be part of the X-men as an active field member when his legs got fixed, his friendship with Magneto being explored, these were all very interesting things about Xavier during Claremont's run. I just think Xavier is more fascinating than a lot of the characters who beat him out. And I DEFINITELY thought that Patrick Steward's performance as Xavier was going help here. Heck I think his death in the movie Logan was more impactful than any x-men comic book death in the past 10 years. But maybe you are right, and people might be voting less on who the find boring and voting more for who they think is a jerk and who they dislike more.


jojojajo12

>But maybe you are right, and people might be voting less on who the find boring and voting more for who they think is a jerk and who they dislike more. See the first three eliminations, you are completely right.


Gothic798

Are u really surprised?


10567151

Yep I thought Xavier would be more popular than the three I mentioned.


OmahaboyinLondon

I think Xavier just brings out stronger feelings than let’s say Bishop or Banshee so when you’re voting on a negative (to get rid of someone) it’s more likely you pick the guy you don’t like rather than someone who you’re neutral on imo He probably has more fans than them but have more detractors.


10567151

Yeah I think so too, people might be voting on a negative basis (who is the character who is the least likable) meanwhile I look at the list and think about who I think is the most expendable to my enjoyment.


i-hate-donkeys

All of those characters are good??


10567151

True but I just thought Xavier is more popular than them.


SheevTheSenate66

Nobody cares if you’re the founder of the X-Men. People cares if you’re a likable character


Danny6891

Beast, Beast, Beast!!! BTW, thanks for doing this OP! I’m more excited for the final results than I am for the XMENVOTE results!


CaptainWitten82

Haha no problem, I’m really enjoying doing it! It’s gonna to be really interesting to see who comes on top.


AStrokeOluck

How did you come up with your mutant criteria?? I’m seeing a ton of great names up there, but some of them haven’t been heavy hitters in a minute haha


CaptainWitten82

I tried to pick the most iconic, recognisable names. There’s some that aren’t as big as others but when I ran out of ‘big names’ I figured a couple wildcards options would be fun to add to round it up to 30. I originally had 40! Blink, Stepford Cuckoos, Pyro, Rictor, Northstar, Sunfire, Dazzler, Exodus, Domino and Forge were going to be added but I thought, I don’t want to oversaturate it and tbh I figured they’d all probably be cannon fodder. A part of me wishes I included them though. Maybe I’d do a V2 at some point with a group of lesser known/secondary mutants.


AStrokeOluck

Honestly some of those could still be heavy hitters. Honestly I feel like the only generation you’re really missing is the new mutants and their second iteration, Surge’s cohort


CaptainWitten82

That’s true! After seeing the results so far I could’ve definitely saw a couple of them making some deep runs. Is there anyone in particular you think I should’ve included in the 30?


AStrokeOluck

I wouldn’t have minded seeing canonball, sunspot, Moonstar or Wolfsbane on the list in its next iteration! I’m not saying they’ll win, but I feel like they’ve earned top 30 spots


AStrokeOluck

But overall I do really appreciate your list and all the work that went into making/keeping up with it!

Multiple Man Madrox I just don't care about his character all that much although his powers are super interesting with how connected him and his doubles were when one of them died but he doesn't have that power anymore I don't think.

At least Beast has his time as an Avenger and the 90s cartoon characterization going for him.

Someday I will knock Angel off this list. Then the challenge is who’s next.

I’m voting for Angel until he is gone

The boys are dropping like flies at this point. How about a vote for Betsy to spice things up? sure Beast might one of the least impressive Marvel scientist, flip flops more than a tortilla, and is a blue freak in a speedo, but at least he is not treated like he is the second coming or anything, and at least he is used in more dynamics ways.


hotrox_mh

Betsy is hot. Will never vote against her. Simpin ain't easy.

Emma and Mags FOR LIFE and Lorna 😎

Ik odds are against it but if Lorna makes it top 10 my objective is complete


DrOverhard

Professor X as a character actively hurts the X-Men. He is a rich straight white man at who is the self-appointed leader of a group that is a metaphor for oppressed minorities. His plan to combat his people’s oppression is to use a group of child soldiers to violently suppress members of his community that have more radical tactics or goals than him. He is dripping with patriarchal condescension towards everyone else. He holds back the growth of more interesting characters. Through all this, we are supposed to view him as a paragon of virtue and the voice of morality because that’s how he was positioned in the 60s, 70s, and early 90s. The X-Men would be a stronger concept if his character never existed.

Why is jubilee even there? She is a decoy for the love of God, remove her at once! And is this vote based on anything other than least favorite? I'm seeing names of some mutants that have really "spanked" over the years in the comments. Like what is everyone's beef with beast? The furball is a sweetheart. (Obviously not talking about dark beast)

Jubilee is definitely in my top ten favorite. Most Gen Xers are in there. I miss Husk.
