This doesn’t mean I don’t like other mutants.  It doesn’t mean these are the most or least famous.  It just means I felt like making a list.

10. Angel.

One of several wonderful Grant Morrison creations during his New X-Men run–one of the greatest comics of all time.

9.  Madrox the Multiple Man.

Peter David did such brilliant stuff with him over the course of about a decade’s worth of X-Factor issues.

8.  Typhoid Mary.

She’s such a versatile character, and many authors have used her to great effect.

7.  XORN.

But only in his first New X-Men story by Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely.

6.  Chamber.

I really liked his 4-issue mini where he went undercover at NYU.  It made me fall in love with this character.

5.  Kitty Pride.

Ever since her solo battle with a brood queen, I’ve dug Kitty.  And Joss Whedon’s work with her in Astonishing X-Men was….Astonishing.

4.  Warlock.

I only dug him when he was in the New Mutants by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz, but those were genius comics.

3.  The Beast.

He can serve as a moral center, comedy relief, the resident science genius…

2.  Quicksilver.

Especially when he stole the Terrigen Mists from the Inhumans, started the Silent War, and became a total dick in the pages of X-Factor.

1.  Longshot.

He looks cool.  He’s got a great and unusual powerset.  He uses a sword.  And, most of all, his original 6-issue miniseries was the first time I witnessed the incredible art of Arthur Adams.
