Every X-Men Team - Ranked From Worst To Best

There are a lot of X-cellent groups to consider...

Marvel Comics

The number of X-Men splinter teams is pretty bonkers; there are probably more now defunct X-teams than there are active (non-mutant) superhero teams in the Marvel Universe as a whole, all because one bald-headed dude had an ego large enough to decide that naming his group of superpowered teens after himself was acceptable.

What spawned as a result were an onslaught of pun-ily titled teams, 'X' this, 'X' that, alongside several other groups that decided to be more original and X-clude themselves from the typical naming conventions for mutant superhero squads (though this latter type generally ended up becoming relatively obscure, of course).

Yet, obscurity, bad team names, and bald-headed egotists are not the only factors in what makes a good X-Men group - there are several other aspects to consider: the roster, the costumes, the various iterations - they may not be as important as the factor of whether the team name is a pun or not, but they require examination regardless.

With those criteria established, here are the not so official rankings for the comic book X-Men teams, worst to best.
