Who would be on your ideal X-Men team? 7 members max. The members you pick must have been an X-Man in the past (not X-Factor, X-Force, X-Caliber, X-Irritable Bowl Syndrome, etc.)

I think my ideal team is from when I first read them (Claremont/P. Smith/JR Jr.):
Cyclops (pirate boots and all)
Wolverine
Colossus
Storm
Nightcrawler
Kitty Pryde
Rogue

This is timely because I just set up my ML X-Men for display last night.

My team would be heavily influenced on my bias towards the Claremont/Cockrum/Byrne teams.
The all time great X-team will always be

Cyclops
Wolverine
Nightcrawler
Colossus
Storm
Kitty Pryde

However, I'm a big fan of the animated series roster

Cyclops
Wolverine
Storm
Beast
Jubilee
Gambit and Rogue (too interesting to be left off the team)

I'm not a fan of modern Marvel's love of filling the roster with villians and d-bags (Emma Frost wore out her welcome long ago. Namor? Come on.) However, I would put Magneto on a team just because his and Prof X's relationship is so interesting. I'd probably find a spot for Iceman, Archangel, and Psylocke and between that list of guys I'd split them up into the old "Gold" and "Blue" teams and have X-Men and Uncanny X-Men be the only two X-books on the shelves. Something that will never happen.

I'm also heavily influenced by the Claremond/Byrne/Cockrum roster.

I am also picking:

Storm
Wolverine
Nightcrawler
Colossus (pre-emo of course)
Kitty Pryde

I'm not picking Cyclops because I feel like they've made him one of the most unlikable characters over the last few years. I'm not picking Rogue because I feel like the team should have at least 2 original members so I pick:

Iceman
Beast

Iceman is my favorite X-Man. I've always felt like he gets the shaft.

Warpath is a good choice. I love that guy! I liked him on that team that was lead by Havok that was trying to stop Vulcan a few years back.

Is Xavier still leading the team, or would he have to be included?

Xavier
Cyclops
Jean Grey
Wolverine
Beast
Colossus
Nightcrawler
Storm

If Xavier has to be part of the 7, I'd replace Nightcrawler.

What I mean is, I want Xavier on the team as the leader. However, he doesn't go out on missions with the team regularly so I'm including as the 8th member. If I have to remove someone for him, it'll be Nightcrawler that's first to go.

I'd go back to the Blue and Gold Strikeforce days!! But I'd split up the teams a bit more evenly!! Not have all the popular characters on one team!! -_-

I 'll take a stab at this

1) cyclops (70's/80's costume)
2) Angel (blue Neal adams costume)
3) Iceman
4) Pheonix (jean Grey gold/green costume)
5) Wolverine (80's)
6) Collossus
7) Psylocke (90's)

However, I would cancel all the wolverine titles and x-tra x titles. I would make uncanny x men the only title.

pretty easy for me since there are plenty of X-men that I dislike

my team:

Cyclops (leader)
Archangel
Iceman
Beast (not cat Beast)
Colossus
Nightcrawler
Wolverine (acting as the loner, not the guy who wants to be team leader or a part of 9 teams at the same time)

If that were the case, I'd be reading X-books again. How great would it be to follow ONE book and get the whole story?

Storm as leader (at this point Cyclops is unsalvagable)
Beast (classic blue non cat)
Nightcrawler (i'd love to see these two as rivals an atheistic science approach vs. a moral religious approach)
Ice-man
Psylocke (how she got to be who she is, is messy, but she became a cool character)
Collosus (muscle)
Quicksilver (would add some drama potentially, no green on his costume !)

I'm almost there with my dream team


Beast (ML4 - awesome toy)
Colossus (ML5 - awesome toy)
Phoenix (ML6 - good toy)
Wolverine brown costume (ML6 - awesome toy)
Nightcrawler (ML9 - good toy)
Iceman (using the pre-ML Water Wars one, no good toy exists)
Storm (want the classic costume, doesn't exist)


That comes close to Byrne/Cockrum era, and I just like Iceman. TommyGoth is right - he does get the shaft.

Toy Biz ML did a lot of great X-Men toys, some of which are underrated. TBML Beast, Nightcrawler, brown Wolverine, and Gambit are figures that you just can't improve on.

I don't see anyone really improving ML Beast, it's just like it jumped out of a comic page also love the Gambit. As for my ideal X-men team I'm gonna go with:

-Cyclops as leader(best x-man)
-Wolverine
-Beast(every team needs a brain)
-Jean Grey(psychics come in handy)
-Storm
-Rogue(great characterization potential due to her powers)
-Colossus
-Archangel/Angel

honorable mentions:
-Iceman
-Gambit
-Nightcrawler

seeing lists like this always makes Jean Grey stick out, i've always hated her lack a codename in modern times, yes I get Marvel girl sucks, but something besides her name needs to stick.
