The X-Men franchise has existed since 1963 and has had countless iterations across media. Most comic book fans attribute its continued success to its applicability to real life conflicts, the chief conflict being minority oppression. The X-Men are hated and feared for being different, just like (insert race/gender/creed/religious affiliation/dress size). So of course, these Defenders of the Disenfranchised are represented byattractive, fit, upper class and educated white people. Kind of subverts the whole minority thing. The thing is, if X-Men like Cyclops or Angel really existed, theyd be on the cover of Esquire posing with Kate Upton. Theyre about as oppressed as your high school football team. Even the "weird" X-Men like Nightcrawler and Beast would still get more action than you do. What happened to the super-team that Stan Lee proudly proclaimed were "The strangest heroes in Marvel"? X-Men writers seemed to have picked up on this conceit and have made efforts to create more X-Men with overt and unsettling mutations in the last thirty years. Granted, most of these guys aren't major X-Men but they still get an A for effort. Rather than having a team of supermodels, the modern X-Men tend to have a lot more REAL weirdos. People with tentacles or bat wings or at least an extra boob. With that in mind, lets take a look at the X-Men that Professor Xavier doesnt put on the college brochure. If you have any personal favorite X-Freaks, feel free to mention them in the comments!
