    I agree with Wind Rider...though I think Sabretooth and Sage should be on here too.

    I could easily see this being a Top 15 or 20 list.

    I struggled a bit with putting it together, since usually Betsy and Cable are among the top for me, but here are my top 15 H2H fighters for the X-Men (just based on showings of skill and who they've fought on panel):

    1. Wolverine
    2. Gorgon
    3. Gambit
    4. X-23
    5. Kwannon
    6. Storm
    7. Cyclops
    8. Kitty
    9. Nightcrawler
    10. Bishop
    11. Domino
    12. Mystique
    13. Warpath
    14. Rogue
    15. Magik

    Honorable mentions Emma, Banshee, Forge, Havok, Sage and Jubilee. All of them have shown impressive H2H skills on panel.

    1. Wolverine
    2. Cable(adult)
    3. Bishop
    4. X-23
    5. Psylocke
    6. Gambit
    7. Kitty
    8. Storm
    9. Rogue
    10. Nightcrawler

    Didn't include the likes of Sabretooth, Gorgon, Silver Samurai, or any other Wolverine arch nemesis who're currently shacked up on Krakoa since I still see them as villainous characters and didn't wanna push some of the actual X-Men off the list.

    Jobbertooth gets his ass kicked too easily & often to be on any list of top fighters. lol His only combat feat since 2002 = "can take an ass-kicking."

    Otherwise, I can somewhat agree with the list, but things can get murky given characters like Rogue & Monet.

    Lol very true. Victor needs some redemption. Ah and I forgot about M, who is a beast in combat. One of my fave moments was here flattening Enchantress during Wood's X-Women run.

    Crud, aka Creed won't be getting any redemption at this point. Hickman had him a few months, and finished destroying that already sunken ship.

    Monet is very beastly in combat, provided she's not being written as a dumb brute like she often was in X-Factor. Wood's X-run redeemed her a bit there.

    The series is a huge mess, and filler at this point, but she did clobber Omega Red pretty good in Weapon X.

    And while he was making a fool out of everyone, she was also the only one to get a good shot on Deadpol.

    I see it something like this

    1.Wolverine
    2.Prodigy
    3.Kwannon
    4.Wolverine(Laura)
    5.Psylocke/Shatterstar
    6.Cable
    7.Kitty/Magik/Warpath
    8.Gambit/Nightcrawler
    9. Domino/Bishop
    10.Cyclops/Storm

    Prodigy should honestly be number 1

    Guys, this list is not about the best "fighters" it is about martial arts. So Any character beating any other wouldn't necessarily contribute to this list. Since most of the writers don't know anything about martial arts, it is tough to make an objective list. However, CBR's was a nice try IMHO

    CBR got top 3 right. Cable should be in Top 5 after Kwannon instead of Kurt.
    Places 5-10 could be a mix of a lot of X fighters really.

    Huge difference between Kid Cable and OG Cable, though. I wouldn’t even put this weak kid version in the Top 10.

    Yeah, yeah... he killed the OG version. That’s was b.s. Plus he caught him by surprise because he wasn’t expecting to be assassinated by himself.

    Has Jubilee ever been regarded as one of the top fighters? This list makes me lose credibility in the writer, lowkey.. lol

    I would say:

    1. Wolverine
    2. X-23
    3. Psylocke
    4. Deadpool
    5. Cable
    6. Shatterstar
    7. Kitty Pryde
    8. Bishop
    9. Warpath
    10. Gambit

    Gambit went toe-to-toe with Blade, Deadpool, Moon Knight and Daredevil, with Bishop even when Remy was depowered and now he is on list lower then Kitty? No way

    Y'all forget old school Jubilee was created to be a Robin to Logan's Batman. She was a world class gymnast back in the early days. I don't remember her dishing it out too much offensively, but I do remember amazing evasive feats, so maybe that's where the article was coming from.
    Let the flames destroy all but that which is pure and true!
