  1. QotW: Jamie Madrox (Multiple Man). I love how he takes a power that just starts off as “I make a bunch of clones to serve as fist fodder.” to some really interesting places with how he eventually learns to apply it.

    1. Specifically, when he figures out that he can, say, walk into a library, make 100 clones, have them each read a book, and when he reabsorbs them, he’s read 100 books in a day.

      He’s basically able to use this ability to rapidly become an expert in any field he wants. Like science, criminology, etc.

  2. Steve, best of luck on your goal to read the entirety of X-Men. I attempted to do the same earlier this year and made it into the first few Claremont books before I needed a break. I ended up starting the more recent Hickman run shortly after (starting with House/Powers of X) and made it through every X comic made from that point to where they’re currently printing. It can be exhausting, but incredibly rewarding. I hope you enjoy it thoroughly!

    Question of the week: Who is your favorite member of the X-Men?
    Absolutely, without a doubt, Storm has grown to be my favorite member of the X team, possibly my favorite superhero in general. She’s the ultimate badass in the comics, from her earliest appearances all the way to now (and who doesn’t love a killer mohawk?) She has a strong moral code and loyalty to her teammates that I find inspiring. Still waiting for a truly good approximation of her array of weather-based powers in a video game, and I’ll probably be waiting a long time (or forever) to vortex enemies or ruin some baddies’ day with a little rain and lightning.

  3. QotW: I spent almost half of my life in New Orleans. I graduated from high school and college there, it’s where I met my wife, and I try to get back there at least once a year to visit family. When I’m not playing vidjagames or reading comics, I’m usually perfecting my gumbo recipe. My favorite X-Man is Nightcrawler, because teleporting is neat.

    OH, you thought I was going to pick Gambit?! Wow. Wow. WOOOOOOOOOOOW. Way to stereotype. Wow

  4. X23 is by far my favorite, i remember her first appearance on that not so good show xmen evolution and from there marvel vs capcom 3, this lead me down the rabbit hole and introduced me to comics i would have never read otherwise like x force and avengers academy. I credit my current love of xmen to Laura

  6. I think my favorite has to be Illyana Rasputin/Magik.

    Became a powerful sorceress, took over Limbo, wields a giant sword, wears cool armor that also gives her cool demon horns. And did all this as a teenager. What a badass.

    Too bad that the new mutants movie sucked, I thought casting Anya Taylor Joy was pretty inspired.
