I'm surprised Rogue, Jean, Kitty, and Colossus are on that list.

Heck, if they had a comic that was just those four, I would probably buy it. Sort of a reverse Fantastic Four. I don't know why those four would form a team, but hey, it makes as much sense as the X-Men: Red line-up as far as I can tell so far.





I was shocked to see Rogue. I know there are some Gambit fans that dislike her, but other than them, I've never really met anyone that hates her. She's no Kitty to me, but I adore her.

Jean is very often derided for being either too weak and dull on her own or being hopped up on Phoenix juice. No real shock to see her here.

Were I any bigger a Kitty fan I might explode, but I'm not really shocked. The things I love about her have been what many hate: she's sort of a now grown wunderkind and to put it nicely, she never misses an opportunity to speak her mind.

Were it not for his positive points that don't get played up very often, Colossus would be a lummox. Sadly, the things writers seem to like doing is spotlighting his ignorance and childlike behaviour (prone to tantrums). Other than this, he's just not interesting. I love the guy, and used to be a Piotr-Kitty shipper (maybe the only "ship" I've ever ridden), but I can't do it anymore.

Overall though, I'd say that "popularity breeds contempt." When anything becomes popular, it's going to gain haters. These same characters top lists of Most Loved characters, as well.
