    Gonna be long. Generally from most beloved to least but still fondly remembered.


Wow! You've compiled some list! But I already knew you liked obscure mutants so I'm not really surprised.

I'm only going to comment on a few of these. Incidentally, somewhere in the Menshevik dialogue I became more stringent about "obscure" then I originally intended to be - but that's what happens when nits get picked.


    Quote:
    SAGE! ♥♥♥ I adore every bit of the retcon. I miss her. I sometimes dream about her. If anyone could supplant Kitty in my heart it might be her. But if she's not obscure enough...


You've mentioned your adoration for her before. I know her but I'm a little surprised that I do. I couldn't possibly have encountered her more than once or twice. Oh - Extreme X-Men? (Checks Wikipedia.) Ah - X-Treme X-Men. Written by Claremont in 2001! I had to read at least some of that. Claremont in 2001! 'Nuff said.


    Quote:
    Darkstar! I've always wanted her to be a prominent X-Man. She's my favourite Russian Marvel character.


I never knew she was a mutant until Menshevik told me!


    Quote:
    Molly Hayes! If I have to explain, your too old.


Obscure? She's on TV!


    Quote:
    I love the 25 mutants that survived the Kyle/Yost culling, most leftovers from the DeFillipis/Weir New Mutants... except maybe Pixie.


I hate cullings.


    Quote:
    I'm not sure how obscure characters like Rockslide, Anole, Surge, Hellion, and Dust are.



    Quote:
    Lila Cheney! 'Nuff said.


Menshevik named her too.


    Quote:
    Exiles' Nocturne -- alt-universe daughter of Nightcrawler and Wanda and awesome rocker chick! Butt Monkeys Rule!



    Quote:
    Callisto? Leader of the Morlocks? Obscure? Don't think so, but maybe enough for this.



    Quote:
    Evangeline "Vange" Whedon, from Claremont's X-Treme X-Men. She's a high-powered mutant rights lawyer that turns into a gorgeous red dragon. She's also appeared on the Gifted TV series.



    Quote:
    Maggott. He's got slugs! Big deal! Heck, in my inner fanfic he is actually the slugs that grew a humanoid body to interact with bipeds.



    Quote:
    Frenzy! Well, I was enjoying her until the "Age of X" hookup with Cyclops.



    Quote:
    Cecilia Reyes



    Quote:
    Amelia Voght. History with Chuck and her alternative views.



    Quote:
    Siena Blaze. Surely they could pseudoscience something so that her powers didn't destroy the world.



    Quote:
    X-Treme aka Adam X! He'll always be "my" 3rd "Summers" Brother.



    Quote:
    Firestar. I think it speaks for itself.


Obscure? She was in a cartoon!


    Quote:
    I used to kind of roll my eyes at Stacy X, but now I kinda dig her.



    Quote:
    I'm still kinda miffed that Joseph turned out to be a clone.



    Quote:
    From the Morrison years: Dust, Beak, and Angel Salvadore. Although I'm not sure if the latter two are mutants anymore.



    Quote:
    Artie & Leech. C'mon, who couldn't like them?



    Quote:
    The mutants Claremont had in the Genoshan Excalibur series: Book, Wicked, Hub, etc.



    Quote:
    A good while back (15 years or so?) there was a Morlocks mini about a group of Chicago Morlocks. In that group was a girl Heroin addict named Electric Eve. She was later in one of those one-page alt-universe Marvel Visions back in the early-2000s and joined the X-Men of that alt-universe.


Heroin addicts always depress me.


    Quote:
    The Young X-Men series (that gave us Ink also gave us): Cipher, Alisa Tager, who's mutant power is to sort of be forgotten. She can phase like Kitty, become invisible, inauduble, and can be immune to psychic detection.



    Quote:
    Transonic of Generation Hope. Looks kinda like Mystique (blue skin and red hair), but flies really fast, and when she does, she turns into a magnificent flying fish-thing.



    Quote:
    Eva Bell, aka Tempus with time powers, despite being a Bendis creation.



    Quote:
    Lifeguard. Kind of a silly name, but I liked her, and especially her visual (golden skin and wings).



    Quote:
    I wish the Hellions had survived Necrosha. I think maybe Claremont made them too pastiche-y.



    Quote:
    All of those Fallen Angels kids (and lobsters, even if they aren't mutants). Especially Ariel the teleporter.



    Quote:
    Petra & Sway - the two Deadly Genesis team members I wish would have survived


That was such an awesome list! And then you took it to a whole 'nother level...


    Quote:
    And a bunch of others I just miss for reasons:



    Quote:
    Abyss - lost Nightcrawler half-brother
    Arclight from the Marauders.
    Box/Madison Jeffries
    Diamond Lil - RIP \:\(
    Caliban - RIP \:\(
    Copycat - RIP \:\(
    Erg - Morlock
    Fatale - She seemed like she could be a rising star in the 90s, but then... nothing.
    Gargouille - Acolyte
    Goblyn - Gamma Flight kid
    Threnody - WEHT... and her baby. Might be the only association of X-Man that I liked.
    Outlaw - cowgirl used to hang with Deadpool
    Peepers - RIP \:\(
    Persuasion/Purple Girl
    Paulie Provenzano - why do I have fond memories of him? RIP \:\(
    Risque - RIP \:\(
    Emma Steed - London Hellfire Club
    Tangerine (but is she a mutant?) - MI13
    Timeslip - Indian mutant from New Warriors


Wow. I have to say, you make me appreciate the days when there were lots and lots of mutants running around.
