Ok, I'm genuinely disturbed that someone is beating it to the idea of Jubilee getting concussed into unconsciousness.
Also, Jubilee is the best x-man. She was homeless and lived in a mall.
She was better than Cyclops.
Hell, a woman who had one scene in an old limited series who could change the color of whatever flower she was holding was better than Cyclops.
She was my favorite, too. I guess, in retrospect, I can see why people liked Wolverine so much. *Objectively speaking*, there might be some justification for him being the most popular X-man.
But I don't care. Jubes is Best Mutant.
My mane Western comic book OC is heavily influenced by Jubilee, moreso than any other heroine! There's shades of Banzai Girl, Catwoman, and Neo in there, too, but I think Jubilee was my primary influence.
Also, SPK speaks true. Cyclops sucks ass, and is one of, if not THE, lamest superheroes around.
My gut reaction is to one star based on usage of the word "mane", but x-men is holy ground.
Mr. Purple Cat Esq.
Whats so wrong with cyclops? Hes like a guy whos always carrying around a super powerful gun *in his eyes* !!
I wanted to write something about how Cyclops is Mr. Broomstick Up The Ass, and how it's impossible for him to be anything but, except that can't possibly be true of ANY character -- you can write a character however you like. If I understand correctly, these days he's joined the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants or something, so that should settle the matter. And yet I can't imagine him as anything but Mr. Broomstick Up The Ass. And I even remember comics from 20 years ago where he'd do something genuinely awesome, and even so he was just Mr. Broomstick Up The Ass doing an uncharacteristically worthwhile thing.
So why can't Cyclops figuratively escape Mr. Broomstick Up The Ass the way he literally escaped Mr. Sinister? And I think the problem is his eyes. One hundred percent of the time, he's got this big stupid reminder on his face that he could kill everyone he loves if he lets his guard down for even a split second. He's like a normal superhero accompanied at all times by Debbie Downer, except that I like Rachel Dratch and would like to see her in more stuff.
I don't know much about Jubilee's current condition, but I remember her from Claremont's late 80s / early 90s phase and I cannot abide any of that shit. She was a creation of Claremont's worst CCA-approved impulses, and even then probably one or two non-approved impulses but reined in (he certainly had a thing for setting Wolverine up with teenage girls).
>So why can't Cyclops figuratively escape Mr. Broomstick Up The Ass
There was the one time Cyclops murdered Professor Charles Xavier (who so far has stayed dead. )
Mr. Purple Cat, he has a GUN IN HIS EYES and that's it. Putting his emo personality aside for a second, let's also note that he has a GUN IN HIS EYES that he CAN'T SHUT OFF.
I mean, what good is he? Someone with any number of decently advanced weapons available in the Marvel U (especially, say, a gun) is just as effective. He's also not particularly tough, so he should've died several times over by now.
Hell, he and Angel should've died for good by now. Both aren't immune to bullets and draw attention to themselves whenever they use their powers. People shoot at helicopters in L.A. with no provocation, and given how much people hate mutants, you'd think someone would've taken an pot-shot at these two losers by now.
You might enjoy reading Uncanny X-Force (the first series) #1-20. Something very interesting happens to Angel.

Well, you know what GOP Rep. Mike Rogers says. If she doesn't know about it...

Awesome, I almost never get to indulge in my yellow trench coat fetish.
Not since the court order, at least.

Huh. I never realize how terrible the animation in this show was.
Yup. It really was.
Not only that, but looking back the fight scenes were pretty boring. Everyone just fires off their power, once each, in a straight forward matter. Even that teen x-men cartoon did better than that.
Wolverine and the X-men was pretty decent too.
Yeah, I know everyone loves to hate X-Men: Evolution, but I liked it far better than this show.
As DC later demonstrated, you can have less-detailed characters with better animation overall (see Batman: The Animated Series, Justice League, etc.) or you can try for more comic-book-level detail with crappy animation (X-Men, and, sadly, many current DC animated movies).

This fetish is all about chloroforming and raping people, I guess.
