Quote: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: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.
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
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.
