Professor X

The 100 Greatest X-Men Of All Time

100-x-men-feat

Who are the greatest X-Men of all time? To mark the release of X-Men: Apocalypse, we came up with the ultimate list of the top 100 characters ever to wear the X as part of the extended family of Professor Charles Xavier's Westchester school. These are the very best heroes (and sometimes villains) in more than fifty years of stories about Marvel mutants fighting for a world that hates and fears them!

The final list was determined by a combination of our expert panel's rankings and our readers' votes, and as you might expect, the results offer an amazing selection of icons, powerhouses, and gorgeous freaks --- not to mention a few unexpectedly popular weirdoes. But it wouldn't be the X-Men without embracing the appeal of the weird.

100 X-Men: How Do Polaris, Emma Frost, The M Twins, Boom-Boom and Professor X Rank As Great X-Men?

100-xmen-6

Who are the greatest ever X-Men? Over the coming weeks, we’re going to try to answer that question, selecting five X-Men at a time from across the franchise’s long history, and pairing up your votes with the opinions of our own panel of highly opinionated X-Men fans. Your scores will be added to ours to determine the top 100 X-Men.

This week our randomizer has thrown out two telepathic headmasters of the Westchester school; one an actual ex-villain, and the other just generally kind of awful. Plus, one of Magneto's kids, two very confusing twins, and a surprise bid for one of the more unlikely high-scoring X-Men characters we've seen thus far. But that's before we get to your votes!

The X-Men Episode Guide 5×14: ‘Graduation Day,’ The Series Finale

X-Men 5x14: Graduation Day

From 1992 to 1997, the X-Men animated series aired on Fox, giving Marvel Comics in all their convoluted, continuity-heavy glory a foothold in mass media and giving a generation of fans a window into one of the hottest comics ever at the peak of its popularity. From bizarre adaptations of key X-Men storylines to faithful adapations of some of the weirdest and most complex stories the merry mutants had to offer, it was one of the most important comics-based television shows of all time, which is why we've dedicated this time every week to an in-depth guide to every single episode of the series.

This week, that episode guide finally comes to an end with "Graduation Day," where mutant rebellion sweeps the globe, and An X-Man Dies! Sort of!

The X-Men Episode Guide 4×15: Xavier Remembers

X-Men 4x15: Xavier Remembers

The early ’90s were spoiled for choice when it came to comic book adaptations. Not only was Batman: The Animated Series on the air, but X-Men led Marvel’s push to get on the small screen, diving right into the often convoluted continuity of everyone’s favorite mutants, luring in a generation of fans, and paving the way for cartoons to follow. That’s why we’ve set out to review every single episode of the ’90s X-Men animated series.

This week, Xavier battles against the Shadow King, something that I'm sure we'll all care about eventually if they keep talking about it.

This week: The battle against Proteus continues, and we get some daddy issues that are way over the top, even by X-Men standards.

Wolverine, Professor X And Beast Are Looking Pretty ’70s In New ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past’ Image

X-Men DoFP

Coming up with costumes for live action super hero movies must already be a trip, but throw in the opportunity to whip out some '70s style threads, and I'm guessing it's a designers dream. It's not a combination that presents itself very often, but in the upcoming  X-Men: Days Of Future Past film, you'll see just that. And with principal photography on the movie having wrapped this weekend, an image has arrived online of Nicholas Hoult, James McAvoy and Hugh Jackman -- as Beast, Professor X and Wolverine, respectively -- in all their polyester sartorial splendor.
