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