Holy smokes, that’s a lot of X-Men!
To celebrate the X-Men's 50th and the current Battle of the Atom comics crossover event, we’re sharing with you a peek at this extraordinary, new infographic by MFA artist Leigh Wortley, taking you through the years of X-Men's sprawling saga. Featuring dozens of the greatest characters in the Marvel title’s history - can YOU name every mutant depicted in the five decades of X-Men?! Are there one or two who’ve got you stumped?!
Heyyy. Guess what I made for the X-Men’s 50th. There are 150 x-men characters listed and I’m just sorry I couldn’t have put them all on. Head over to welovefine to let them know what you think!

COLOSSUS & KITTY PRYDE
Forever kept apart, despite being two of the most physically unstoppable and spiritually indomitable characters in all of comics. Their early romance was sort of inappropriate and awkward, but it’s been etched into fandom as a smoldering testament to the power of first love - even if the characters never again connect the way they once did.
Remastered from this 2009 version:
FINN THE HUMAN and JAKE THE DOG
In a fantastic world full of wizards, super-science, and gigantic post-apocalyptic monsters, how can a simple human boy be the greatest hero in the land?
1) He’s a great listener and seems to have the ability to quickly understand the problems of others.
2) He has the BEST best friend ever: A shape-shifting dog who is also his wise, mellow older brother.
Combine that with a ton of courage and a dedication to helping anyone who asks, and you get a hero ready to take on any adventure, no matter how big or small!
See you this week at NYCC!! modHero: Booth 1577!!
I want the 90s back now, if just for that SNIKT! necklace.
X-MEN print for NYCC!
Super excited to draw this - the 90s X-Men cartoon was huge in introducing me to comics and made me a sucker for all X-Things. Hope you like!
I like Hawkgirl. Don’t you? Pretty much everybody does. Why is that? Maybe it’s her primal power set. Flying! Yeah! And super-strength to hit stuff! Woo! - But lots of characters have those powers. Maybe it’s her loopy, layered origins that span multiple generations, incarnations and resurrections. - But, isn’t that all just a bit messy? She reminds me of characters in the He-Man universe, where anything goes. Magic? Science? Alien warrior mystique? Yes! - But is that really why we like Hawkgirl?
Even though she was originally brought about to match-and-accompany her older male counterpart, she’s outgrown those origins. She’s got a seat at the JLA table. An occasional solo series. Her own mythos. Her own fan base. In a marketplace where the best hope for a Wonder Woman movie is a fan-made trailer, Hawkgirl seems ready to shatter the highest glass ceiling.
A great breakdown of wolverine costumes. Astonishing Wolverine is such a sharp design. I’m glad the Bianchi mod with the ugly red X and striped cuffs was left out. I wish AoA and Horseman of Death got callouts. They’re kind of off-topic, but fun designs. Also: No love for the obscure/inexplicable Purple Wolverine outfit only seen once? :(
