If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.
This week we’re counting down the top five most underrated X-Men! Since 1963, Marvel’s merry mutants have gained an astonishing following by mixing the potent combination of soap opera style melodrama, the alienation of being “different”, and crazy super-powers. Then the 90s and 2000s saw an even bigger explosion in their popularity with the success of multiple cartoons and some movies you may have seen, that introduced the gifted youngsters (and oldsters) of Professor Xavier’s school to an even wider audience. But even with all that real world popularity, there are still a few X-Characters that just never seem to get the kudos they deserve. Quick apology to some of the newer X-Men: Sorry, newbies, you need a few more years of being feared, hated, and undervalued to beat these… winners?
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 animatedseries. This week, Iceman returns and finds a...chilly reception.

After accepting a challenge from himself to create a new EP in just one weekend, nerdcore rapper Adam WarRock came through for himself with the creation of My X-Factor EP, a new mixtape that you can download for free right now. Perhaps inspired by his recent to
Like a select few other Marvel titles, "X-Factor" officially returned to its original numbering with the recent release of issue 200. Along with the renumbering came all the double-sized goodness one could hope for: character sheets, a reprint of a classic tale, in this case "Madrox" #1, and a good jumping-on point for new readers to pick up what has quietly become the best X-comic in years.
X-Factor Investigations faces dangers from all sides and in X-Factor #23, it's about to get worse for this team of private investigators! Written by the acclaimed Peter David and featuring the lush pencils of Pablo Raimondi, the penultimate chapter of "The Isolationist" answers the question on the minds of fans since last issue's shocking final page: is Layla Miller going to survive? Unfortunately for her, that answer hinges on the decision of a special guest-star who would like nothing more than to see her dead-and now it may happen! Meanwhile, the X-Men pay X-Factor a visit, but the last time they met it didn't end well. Why are the X-Men back? And what does it mean for X-Factor? One thing's for sure-it all leading
