    There's non mainstream and then there's cult classics, like Dazzler and Maggott and X-Statix

    Saying this as an X-23 fan, I don't think she's there YET. While you can say "The girl from Logan" and people will be, "Ooooooh yeah!" she's still not one that casual audiences would be able to name the way that the O5+ are.
    Still hoping for that Helix Reunion...

    Do Polaris, Magma, and Firestar just all hang out and cry together, I wonder?

    I put a lot of thought into this one just trying to whittle the list down. I'll try to keep my list small and say in no particular order:

    Monet
    Stacey-X
    Pixie
    Magik
    Moonstar
    Siryn
    Madrox
    Warpath
    Husk
    Chamber
    Rictor
    Marrow
    Wolfsbane

    My favorites can change, depending on how much I enjoy the stories that they are appearing in.

    I think a more interesting question would be why do you like these characters. Because I swear, for most of the characters mentioned here, I can't figure out the answer. It feels like people just like big multi-colored hair and cool powers, meh.

    I think that it's easier to fantasize about characters that are less defined. You could add what you want. (Mainstream characters, on the other hand, have too many definitions that contradict themselves.)

    Shola for me. Why? Nice guy.

    People like different characters for different reasons.

    I posted this in the Firestar Appreciation Thread...

    I love that for most of her history...she has been the non-X-Men mutant. Sure the 616 version first appeared in Uncanny 193 in May 85...then nearly a year later her limited series dropped. But From there she was in New Warriors, Avengers, Marvel Divas, her One Shot, Young Allies all before finally joining the X-Men....then even after Krakoa she appears more prominently outside of the X-Books in Absolute Carnage and Annihilation: Scourge.

    She could be the one I am looking for to break ranks with Krakoa because of all her ties outside of the X-Men.

    The only question is...considering she was working on an art degree...why was she not hired for art at the school when she joined the X-Men.
