Actually, I've found that there's a startling lack of brunette mutants, other than non-white mutants who'd obviously have dark hair.

Shadowcat is brunette.
Rogue is 4/5 brunette.
...and that's all I got.

Look at all the time Marvel tried to hype a mysterious mutant character's appearance recently, ie: this Mutant Zero one, the baby (first said she was a strawberry-blonde now she is unmistakably a red-haired girl), and the never actually stay-dead Jean, and now Madelyne joins the club as well.

I want green-haired ones for a change (or any other color, maybe with the exception of blonde), always prefer the color on comic female characters, or brunette, I like brunettes more in RL anyway.

Fixx is a member of the X.U.E. which was Shard's renegade crew of former X.S.E. cops. She is a tele-something. She can pull herself and others through time, has these little butterfly like mental weapons that she uses like darts and i think she is telekinetic. she was pretty awesome and badass...as were her other two teammates, Archer and Greystone. The three of them, along with Shard and Havok and Polaris made up the roster of X-Factor right before it changed to Mutant X.

Suposedly, Greystone died in the same explosion that 'killed' havok...but since he survived it, im sure greystone coul have too.

Archer and Fixx are now in limbo...so deeply that people forgot to depower them during M day

true but how many red haired mutant woman do we have.

Jean
Rachel
Maddie -> not surprising for this bunch since they are all in the same family

Mutant Zero and Messiah Complex girl - Both of which identities have not been revealed and could potentially already be someone we know

Rahne (Wolfsbane)
Mystique
Siryn - isnt hers actually a strawberry blonde?

Who else am I missing? Doesnt seem like that there are many red heads as it seems. Theres a TON more blondes out there if you want to go by count

Mutant Zero IS someone we know according to Dan Slott.

And the Marvel Universe has tons of redheads...

Jean
Rachel
Maddie
Rahne
Siryan
Mary Jane
Scarlet Witch
Medusa
Crystal (Sometimes)
Hellcat
Tigra (Sometimes)

PLENTY of redheads all together in the Marvel universe.

No. He said it was a BIG name that every reader would go ''OOOH." Plus Mutant Zero has telekinetic powers and appears in previews on flames. She's more than likely Jean Grey.

typhoid mary has red hair, has a somewhat big name, also possesses telekinesis AND pyrokinesis, which would explain the fire

Scarlet Witch's hair is actually aurburn. I know sometimes colorists dont quite get it right and they have it looking more red but she's supposed to be a brunette.

Good list, though but to be fair, one can also start listing the various characters that have different (natural) hair colors and those would definetly be longer

Dude, auburn is a shade of red. It's just brownish red. Or reddish brown. Either way, she counts as a redhead about as much as Siryn (who's strawberry blonde).

Slott also said that even people who didn't read comics would recognize Mutant Zero when her identity was revealed. I'd say that lets out Typhoid Mary. I'm hoping it's Jean, but even if it's not I do not want the Messiah Baby to turn out to be Jean.

well Mutant Zero has finally been revealed and she is not Jean. Thank goodness, bc I never thought Marvel would have had her return over there where there's little to no X-interest. Not to mention absolutely no hype.

Right, so I go to read my X-Men Manifest Destiny #5 ...only it wasn't really X-men Manifest Destiny. Marvel put the Manifest Destiny #5 cover on issue #3 of the X-men/Spiderman mini. Bizarre. Am I the only one that this happened to?

Or is it a manipulatively brilliant master plan to subconsciously make people want to purchase the earlier and final issues of X-Men/Spider-man?

Dun dun dun!
