X-Men: First Class Poll

In honor of the X-Men: First Class film that came out recently, I would like to do a X-Men: First Class poll. Actually, very few of the characters in the movie were the original X-Men in the comics. Therefore, I would like to know who your favorite character is of the original X-Men.

The original X-Men members are Angel, Beast, Cyclops, Iceman, Jean Grey (known as "Marvel Girl" at the time), and Professor X. (Click on the highlighted names above if you would like to see the Marvel Madness blog bio on the characters.)

Please vote in the poll for your favorite original member of the X-Men: First Class. If you have time, please write in the comment section why you like the character so much and/or rank all of the characters in your opinion.

(Note: The comicbook cover posted is the first appearance of the X-Men.)


  1. My rankings of the X-Men: First Class:
    1. Beast
    2. Angel
    3. Iceman
    4. Jean Grey
    5. Professor X
    6. Cyclops

    Ever since my brother gave me an X-Men comic card of Beast, I have always liked him. I must like super-strength as a power because of my top 5 all-time favorite superheroes, 3 have super-strength as their power (including Beast)! Plus, Beast is very acrobatic, and the guy can hang from ceilings and crawl up walls--how cool is that?!

  2. I love Professor X. I like his mission, I like how he has set out to help people, I like that he is someone everyone else can look up to... but mostly I love that he can read minds, because I think that would be the coolest superpower ever! =) (At least, it would for a social worker.) ;-)

  3. I like Angel and Iceman latter after they leave the X-men. The character I consistently like best is Cyclops. Always the hero at the front lines, strong powers but is limited by them. Makes him seem more human than some of the others.
