Who’s Your Favorite X-Men Character?

Considering that I’ve been watching so many X-Men movies lately I had to revisit this post for this week’s Who’s Your Favorite? Enjoy!

(My X-Men knowledge is still somewhat limited so I will be listing the characters I am most familiar with.)

Cyclops

Cyclops has always been a cool character because of his interesting eye beam ability and the same can still be said from this most recent rendition of the character. While I never knew that much about the X-Men I still knew who Cyclops was when I was a kid and that shows the impact this hero had on me as a child. I can’t wait to see who will bring him to life this time around.

Nightcrawler

Nightcrawler is pretty cool, actually. His teleporting abilities are pretty fantastic but it’s when he turns into a deadly wrecking machine that he really gets his chance to shine. I’ve only seen him in the newer X-Men movies so I’m interested to eventually see him in the older X-Men films as well.

Mystique

Mystique is easily one of the coolest concepts of a character in the superhero world. The fact that she’s this shape-shifting alien-ish sort of being is remarkable and it’s what makes her so intriguing. I like to think of her as the blue Black Widow.

It should be interesting to see what sort of cameos we may see as she shapeshifts into current or previously deceased MCU characters when she appears in later films.

Who’s Your Favorite X-Men Character?

(This is a repost.)

The X-Men are an awesome array of unique characters with incredible abilities. It’s only until recently that I’ve begun to actually care and pay attention to the different heroes and I have to say, they’re pretty awesome. Their movies aren’t as great or easy to follow (timeline-wise) as the MCU movies but if you like superheroes there are tons of heroes to get behind in this franchise. With this many cool characters to enjoy there will always be debate of who’s the best of the X-Men. And that’s why they are the topic of this week’s segment of Who’s Your Favorite? Here are the characters.

(My X-Men knowledge is limited so I will be listing the mainstream characters that I know.)

Cyclops

Cyclops has always been a cool character because of his interesting eye beam ability and the same can still be said from this most recent rendition of the character. While I don’t know much about the X-Men I knew who Cyclops was in my younger age and that shows the impact this hero had on me as a child.

Mystique

Mystique is easily one of the coolest concepts of a character in the superhero world. The fact that she’s this shape-shifting alien-ish sort of being is remarkable awesome and it’s what makes her so cool. She’s also a great fighter as well. All in all, Mystique is pretty cool.

Throwback Friday: These Are the X-Men Characters I Want To See in the MCU

With the MCU moving to new horizons for Phase 4 and Disney acquiring Fox it’s inevitable that we’ll see the X-Men in the near future. In fact, technically the X-Men have already graced their presence in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver’s role in the franchise. How the X-Men will join the fray and which new actors will play these iconic characters is still a mystery but it’s an exciting mystery nonetheless.

And that’s why today, for this Throwback Friday post, I’m sharing with you all of the X-Men characters I’m most excited to see make their presence known in the MCU. Enjoy!

Magneto

I didn’t realize how cool Magneto was until my most recent viewing of X-Men: Days of Future Past. It was then that I realized how awesome this character actually was. I think Magneto would be such an epic character in an MCU setting and I’m hoping Kevin Feige is thinking the same as me.

The Phoenix Has Arrived

The latest X-Men movie I watched was Logan and while it was the only superhero film to get nominated for an Oscar besides visual effects and sound editing in forever (for Best Writing Adapted Screenplay) it, to me, was a somewhat boring film that took too long bringing about Wolverine’s imminent demise. I’ve recently seen X-Men: Days of Future Past and while for the most part it’s an enjoyable film it, like most X-Men movies, was a tad bit boring.

Now another installment in the X-Men franchise is set to come out next February with X-Men: Dark Phoenix. This story is focusing on Jean Grey and while I don’t know much about her character or her comic book history I do know this much, she’s finding her dark side in this film. Here’s the first official trailer for the movie.

These Are the X-Men Characters I Want To See in the MCU

The last time I wrote a post displaying the X-Men I wanted to see in the MCU Disney had just bought Fox. Since then I’ve watched X-Men: Days of Future Past and so I have a greater idea of the X-Men I like and the ones I don’t care so much for. So, on that note, here’s an updated version of the X-Men I want to see in the MCU.

Magneto

I didn’t realize how cool Magneto was until my recent viewing of Days of Future Past. Then I realized how awesome this character actually was. I think Magneto would be positively epic in a MCU setting and I’m hoping Kevin Feige is thinking the same as me.

Jean Grey

First of all, if you may not know (I just found this out too) Jean Grey, in one of those Marvel comics, met the Guardians of the Galaxy. It was a crossover event between the Guardians and the X-Men and so they had to fight together to stop some powerful villain (I don’t know who that was.) So that can be put into context.

Secondly, she’s really cool. Before I knew what the X-Men were I knew Jean Grey and I think she would be a fantastic heroine to join the MCU.
