None of My Favorites Have Been Nominated for the X-Men

It’s that time of year again! Time to vote for who we want to join the X-Men. I still love this idea. I also still think that one year of comics is not nearly enough time to really get a roster to gel as a team or as characters. But the novelty of the whole thing is still too good to pass up, so I’m all for it.

Unfortunately, none of the nominees this year are in my pool of favorite X-Characters.

In previous votes, both Strong Guy and Avalanche were in the running — though hardly contenders. That was fun. This time around…I dunno. I think I’d vote for Juggernaut, or maybe Dazzler, even if she’d have to give up being an X-Terminator to join the X-Men.

Honestly, why isn’t anybody writing a Dazzler comic where she forms a mutant rock band and goes on tour? There are so many modern comic book writers eager to tackle Dazzler. We had X-Corp, a comic about the business side of Krakoa. Why not a comic about a mutant rock band on tour?

Anyway, I’m getting off topic. You can vote for the newest member of the X-Men here.

And hopefully next year, the likes of Multiple Man, Mimic, Strong Guy, Toad, Blob, Avalanche, Stacy-X, Cecilia Reyes, Marrow, Maggott or others will run for membership!
