Default Favorite character in the series?

Well now the 5th movie of the series is about at the end of it's run. We've all seen it, we've all ranked it with the rest of the series. This film brings back some characters that already existed in the franchise and expands upon them (Xavier, Magneto, Mystique, Beast), as well as introduces a slew of new characters. So how about a discussion on the favorite characters throughout the series - not just necessarily in one movie, but throughout the series.

I'm gonna add as many options to the poll as I can. If I run out, I'll just add a "Other" option, and you can explain it here.

I'm casting my vote for Magneto. I think he was the best portrayed character over his 4 appearances.

Honorable mention goes to: Gambit (of course, he's my favorite character ever), Beast, Cyclops, and Jean Grey.

I chose Magneto because he's always been my favourite character.

Nightcrawler for being the perfect one and done character. They captured him so well that while I would have welcomed more, I don't feel I need it.

The only character I felt completely satisfied with only having a few scenes.

Second choice would probably be Magneto. Such a bad a**

Possibly Beast. He's the only thing done well in TLS. I liked him a little less in FC but he's good there too.

Most of the other characters have had good films and bad ones. Stryker is an amazing character in X2 but completely boring in XO:W.

I'd agree with you on Beast.

I think that X-Men: First Class gave him a more iconic character arc (experimenting on himself and becoming blue), but as a character, I felt he was better portrayed in X-Men: The Last Stand.

Overall, I can't rate him higher than Magneto, but Beast is one of my favorites in the comics, and he's one of my favorites in the movies as well. I'm glad we got a 2nd movie with him now.

Default Re: Favorite character in the series?

Ive decided.

Nightcrawler is my fave too. He had just a few scenes, but his presence was excelent.

The reasons I think he is one of the best from the franchise are the make up, the action and his lines.

They made a really good job with him, much much better than with most of the cast from the whole franchise.

I think the thing I love about his character is that he has the look of a demon but the soul of a believer. I think Bryan did a great job capturing that. And its one of the factors that made him a special character.

would have wished some other x-men had such attention and detail put on them, specially Angel....

anyway....

that's my vote.

Hmm, this is a toughie, loved all the characters in FC, X1 and X2, some of those characters were brought down by X3 (specifically Wolverine, Xavier, Magneto and Jean) and to a lesser extent Wolverine, but from both of those loved Gambit, Beast (although liked him more in FC) and Pyro.

As others have said Nightcrawler was pretty much spot in X2 and he was the first that came to mind for me, but I will have to do some thinking. I also thought Sebatien Shaw was a fantastic character.

Personally, my favourite X-men character has always been Rogue; but I felt they completely mishandled and ruined the character.

So instead I voted for Magneto. With honourable mentions to Mystique, Nightcrawler, Beast and of course Wolverine. (Even though they concentrated on him a little too much.)

I didn't vote, because I would have to chose two:
- Wolverine from the trilogy;
- Charles Xavier as portrayed by James McAvoy in FC (which hopefully will be a trilogy too).

My top vote, as strange as it may sound, goes to Shaw.

But in terms of characters I loved Erik, Charles, Raven (FC) and Hank (FC)...

I liked a great deal of the First Class characters really...apart from Moira...

Magneto from X-Men: First Class. IMO out of all the villains portrayed in any comic book movie based film, this is the only villain I felt sorry for. The only villain I could understand. And that is because of the character dynamics in First Class

My beef with Havok is the same as Banshee... there just wasn't enough development put into them. I didn't really get a chance to see who they were, other than some very basic archetypes, and a couple displays of power.

For what they were, I thought Havok and Banshee were good. But I saw them as just better versions of Colossus or Angel from X-Men: The Last Stand - secondary minor characters that get no development outside of a couple displays of power and a handful of lines.

We'll see if they get any better development in future sequels.

If Fox goes into the direction of First Class and its character development (of the main characters) I feel it'll be successful.

I prefer Magneter.


He's my second favorite comic book character, and was used fantastically in every film he was in.

My favorite character in X-Men lore is Jean Grey, and I personally feel that X2 is the only film that makes great use of her character. She's pretty wooden in X1, and she's basically non-existent in X3.

Not surprised Magneto is winning. He was well portrayed in the movies and had some cool scenes, but eh, the motivations at the core of most villains are always so uninteresting to me. The banality of evil. Maybe that's why I couldn't care less when George Lucas decided to tell Darth Vader's story.

Magneto - at least the movies' version - was only about "kill the humans! kill the humans!". Meh. He even had to use his own kind, mutants, to achieve his goals - he was willing to kill Rogue, he was willing to left Charles to die. What an hypocrite, really. There's no way I can bring myself to admire Magneto, or his actions - only in terms of "cool sequences in the movie", like when he escaped from prison in X2.
His ending in X3 was perfect: powerless and alone.

I knew Magneto would be leading this, fantastic portrayal by both McKellan and Fassbender. I voted for Mystique though. Love her in all the movies.
