10 Best X-Men Heroes


The Top Ten

1 Wolverine Wolverine Wolverine is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, commonly associated with the X-Men. His powers and abilities include a healing factor and his signature adamantium claws and adamantium skeleton.

This guy is unbeatable!
He can heal quick!
He is quick!
He has sharp senses!
He is the only one who can stop the pheonix!

Without Wolverine, there is no X-Men. You got to have him on the team. He is also a great leader. It's like having pasta without cooking it. That's what it is like when you don't have Wolverine on the team or in any X-Men related stuff. - Daviddv0601

I'm glad the movies are so wolverine based, without wolverine, there is no x-men - q12error

He's the best at what he does!

2 Cyclops Cyclops Cyclops is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics and is a founding member of the X-Men.

Cyclops is not just the best leader of the X-men, he's the best leader of the endangered mutant race. Not as powerful as Magneto, as popular as Wolverine, or as revered as Charles Xavier, he compensates for his inability to control his own mutant abilities with keeping everything else in control as a master strategist who is willing to make the hard choices for the betterment of his people.

Cyclops has an unparallelled source of energy and can release it at a whim through his eyes. He is a master strategist and can absorb/withstand energy used against him like the mutant Bishop. He is also very smart and has a 6th sense of awareness. He can't be beat! -Gerald R.

Gambit's more powerful than Cyclops yet he only ranks as #12 and Cyclops is #2? Don't get me wrong, I love Cyclops but he's not as powerful as other characters on here.

He became a big fat jerk over time. - Elijah_Cook

3 Nightcrawler Nightcrawler Nightcrawler is a member if the X-Men. His main power is teleportation. He appears in many video games, movies, and TV shows that have the X-Men.

He's the embodiment of what the X-Men premise is based on. Even among other mutants, he stands out as different -- the "misfit" as Wolverine called him. The character shows that someone different doesn't have to be feared, as he's the most compassionate and forgiving of all the X-Men. He's the welcoming smile in the face of hatred and misunderstanding.

His personality and heart make him such a loveable character to follow. Plus he's so loyal. Plus he makes great use of his powers. He's just a great fuzzy elf

Teleportation is cool, but Nightcrawler makes it even cooler. He's one of the most loyal people around and will protect those who matter the most to him.

Really cool character. Has a sad backstory but still has a big heart.

He's also super-agile and can teleport, which are basically my dream powers.

4 Storm Storm Storm (Ororo Munroe) is a mutant superhero appearing in Marvel Comics. Her first appearance was in Giant-Size X-Men #1 in 1975 and was created by Len Wein and Dave Cockrum. Her main super power is weather manipulation.

She's beautiful, she's the first black female superhero! She's also a very powerful mutant. She didn't use her powers to defeat Cyclops to become leader. She's literally a goddess, a thief, a loner, a queen, a survivor making her relatable.

She's very strong and she was like ten cows can control the weather cloudy like that only.

Not only she's the best x-men female, she's also the best x-man. I would've voted Wolverine but Wolverine's already number one he doesn't need any more votes

She is the best and she once beat cyclops to become the leader

5 Jean Grey Jean Grey Jean Grey, or Jean Grey-Summers, is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.

My favorite and sexiest X-Men girls is one and only, Jean Grey because she's the most popular Marvel heroine and she's like a geek goddess. I've seen her smokin hot in her swimsuits and her X-Men costumes. Her first class and Phoenix costume are even more hotter than the other ones.

I like Wolverine, Rogue, Storm, Nightcrawler, Jubilee but Jean is the most unique x-men heroine. She can control your mind. Not to mention her evil side phoenix who can destroy all galaxies and planets. Jean/Phoenix is wonderful character - Magnolia

Jean is the most powerful x-men she just can't use the full potential of her powers

Jean and Wolverine should be a couple. - Daviddv0601

6 Deadpool Deadpool Deadpool is a fictional antihero created by Marvel who appears in their comics. Deadpool's first appearance was in New Mutants #98 by Rob Liefeld and Fabian Nicieza in February of 1991. His powers include self-healing and super strength. He is regarded as one of the funniest characters in comics due ...read more.

Everything about Deadpool is great. From his attitude to his brutal honesty and sarcasm. Who doesn't love a mutant anti-hero who literally can't die and has the power to kill the WHOLE Marvel Universe, including the writers of the comics and still be totally amazing? Deadpool is the character that got me into comics at all. If it weren't for Deadpool, then I'd probably still be a boring, normal teenage girl who isn't in love with both Deadpool and Ryan Reynolds (the actor who portrayed Deadpool in the movie).

He is very funny and talks with us and he can kill marvel universe

Deadpool is the most powerful man (or mutant) in creation

He can't die! he has better healing factor than wolverine! what is wrong with people!

7 Professor Xavier

Seriously guys? He's one of the most powerful x men

Dude 14 he's got to be at least number 5 - dgvbfhhvg12442415

What the hell is he doing down here? He's EXTREMELY powerful, smart, intelligent, and everyone would like to marry him!

He had got a kickass ability-telepathy! he is my favourite in marvel!

9 Rogue Rogue Rogue is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, commonly in association with the X-Men.

Are you kidding me? Rogue is the definition of Powerhouse. She can have or be anyone she wants, shes the number one threat to all the villains.

Remember that time when she sounded like a sassy black woman and had that huge sexy ass? Yeah, Rogue is awesome! - Daviddv0601

I can see why she's high on the list since she can replicate powers, but the downside is she has to touch them

Best superheroine

10 Kitty Pryde Kitty Pryde Katherine Anne "Kitty" Pryde is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, commonly in association with the X-Men.

She was the main character in X-Men: Days of Future's Past (The comic) and she really had a great chance to shine. She must just stay away from Bobby though because he is Rogue's man. - Daviddv0601

If you can pass through walls like kitty pryde you can't die at all because all attacks will go right through you

I love the way she can walk through walls and everything.

She's my favorite female x-man she whooped juggernaut without touching him.

11 Gambit Gambit Gambit is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, commonly in association with the X-Men.

The person that said he's not as powerful as Wolverine, Cyclops and Storm, Storm I can agree with and possibly Wolverine due to his healing powers but Cyclops? I hate to break it to you but Gambit is actually a lot more powerful than Cyclops. Look up kinetic energy and optic light and see how they compare. Kinetic energy is much more damaging than optic light. Gambit should be higher. During the Apocalypse arc and New Son arcs, he can even blow things up just by mind power. He deserves a lot better than this.

Gambit is not only one of the coolest X men of all, he is one of the most powerful as well, so much so that he had to have brain tissue removed by Mister Sinister so he didn't kill or injure anyone!

Gambit should be at least #2. He's actually one of the most powerful characters in X-Men. How can these idiots claim he's got weak powers? Just because he doesn't have claws like Wolverine or is a walking atom bomb doesn't mean he's not useful.

He should be in the top 10. He's a full powerhouse. In the New Son arc, he could cause an explosion just by the mind! How incredible is that?

12 Colossus Colossus Colossus is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, commonly associated with the X-Men.

Colossus has always been my favorite marvel hero

Colossus is unstoppable! The only ones that could probably beat him are magneto and professor x

" Strong, steel, hard to kill, amazing background. What more do you want? "

He's the best I mean he's the best marvel superhero in x-men he's INVINSIBLE he is all made metal how As AWESOME IS THAT

13 Iceman Iceman Iceman is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics and is a founding member of the X-Men.

Lets be honest here. He's by far one of the most powerful. He can clone himself, survive being melted, live in the moisture in the air, create and "ice hulk", revive people with his freezing powers, create ice missiles, freeze large areas (he froze the entirety of hell), use ice missiles and freeze people entirely. Plus he's just so damn likeable

Iceman is one of the original x men. He has a cool personality and cool powers. Iceman is powerful but not too powerful and he is a key member of the x men.

Iceman is my favorite! He's funny, sad, powerful, and always compelling.

He is the 2nd best with 3rd cyclops and 4th collosuss

14 The Beast

What's not to love about beast he is the smartest X men and has genius intellect, not to mention his enhanced strength speed and agility!

Smartest X-Man.

15 Magneto Magneto Magneto is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, commonly in association with the X-Men.

Magneto is a badass he literally rips wolverine apart. He can stop bullets, and lift up all the metal in the earth and destroy everything

Um jean grey is even stronger that him she can control every thing not only metal guys

Magneto isn't as good as cyclops or Logan but he should be in top 5! not 15.

Erik is an amazingly powerful mutant, without him how could the X-men movies even work? Days of future past definitely wouldn’t have worked without him, he is a much needed, under appreciated character who needs more recognition for his outstanding power!

16 Mystique Mystique

She's awesome. She is a natural born leader. She also is mysterious and sensitive about what people think of her. That's like me a lot. I show nobody the real me. I love her blue skin and the ability to change forms. People she's a villain but I think she is just trying to help Magneto ant is misunderstood. Go Mystique!

Sexy, sassy, sly, sneaky, mysterious and dangerous. Mystique is so awesome. Ignore Jennifer Garner's performance, the original Mystique actress killed the role! - Daviddv0601

Leader of the X-Men, very smart, pretty, just wonderful

Mystique should be at least top ten

Telepathy skills, shame she's rubbish in first class

20 Jubilee Jubilee

I love Jubilee! Though not the strongest or coolest powers, she definitely has an awesome personality and is very comedic. I wish the comics didn't take her powers away and make her a vampire -_-

Her vampire powers and energy beams make her a pretty beast mutant

21 Warren Worthington III

You mean Angel/Archangel, right? Hell, he's even more dangerous than ever especially when his wings becomes steel, feathered blades.
