Default What Would You Consider the 'Definitive' X-Men Line-Up?

There are really three line-ups that stick out the most:
The original line-up:
*Cyclops
*Beast
*Iceman
*Angel
*Marvel Girl (Jean Grey)

The "Giant Size" line-up from 1975:
*Cyclops
*Wolverine
*Nightcrawler
*Storm
*Thunderbird
*Colossus

The team that was featured on the "Pryde of the X-Men" pilot was essentially the same group except Dazzler was there instead of Thunderbird (who was killed off in the comics since that time).

And the 1992 animated series line-up:
*Cyclops
*Wolverine
*Storm
*Rogue
*Gambit
*Jubilee
*Beast
*Jean Grey

I'm partial to Second Genesis or original Astonishing line-up, but as long as Colossus and Kitty are present I'm happy!

When I think of the X-Men I too think of the Blue/Gold teams, with Nightcrawler and Kitty Pryde thrown in for good measure.

Yeah, for me, if they chuck out Bishop and Jubilee and replace them with Kitty and Kurt, that would be ideal!

Blue was just perfect for me. I'm pretty sure its because I bought X-Men instead of Uncanny and that was my first comic series but I thought Gold was schway boring.

Can we just have all of them? All of them, Blue/Gold Team was just way too awesome.

But to pick up a definitive team for me:

Cyclops = leader
Storm = co-leader
Wolverine = for popularity
Emma Frost = resident ****** and resident punchline bag
Kitty = seriously, I miss her ******ing with Emma and she's useful in a lot of fights
Colossus = ultimate powerhouse for the team
Beast = the brains
Nightcrawler = awesome synergy with Colossus, Kitty and Peter, the heart of the team.
Rogue/Psylocke = I'm torn between the two actually. I want Rogue because she's an asset but Psylocke is also great with fighting on the spot, but Betsy would be better though since I want Rogue to shine as her own and lead her own little team.

Damn talk about an old thread. Same group for me except I'd replace Banshee with Shadowcat and Lockheed. This is the line up when I started reading comics.

Oh crap. I forgot about Kitty. Yeah, I would have her on my list as well.

But yeah, I have a habit of resurrecting old threads.
