I hated House of M...I hope somebody fixes that stupid storyline and brings back all of the lost powers.
 
Magneto gets my choice.

I'd say Polaris, but I'm sure she'll be getting her powers back soon. Heck, I'm sure Mags will get his back as well.
 
I'd say Magneto, but c'mon. He's their iconic villain. Dude's getting his powers back, probably sooner rather than later.

So I'll say Jubilee. I won't miss her powers so much as her character. She takes some flack, but I always thought she was cool.

I liked the House of M itself, but its fallout-- 198 mutants in the freaking world? They're no longer a minority; now they're a tiny cult. Way to undermine the entire theme of the X-Books...
 
I voted Chamber, but there's so several more big names you could have included:

Marrow
Callisto
Moonstar
Beak
 
I have to agree that, once again, this seems like a cheap and easy way to eliminate some of the "extra" mutants they had lying around and make it easy to follow and know about all of the mutants in the MU. You notice ALL of the main characters either a)never lost their powers, b) got them back c) will get them back shortly or d) lost them to serve some story-arc or theme purpose.

Once again, some lame excuse conjured up to sweep mistakes under the rug.

This was simply not thought out at all. What percentage of mutants lost their powers? I honestly don't know, but let's say there had to be over 10,000, and if there are only 198 left after "M-Day" then over 98.02% of mutants lost their powers. Am I supposed to believe when 98 percent of mutants lose their powers, only a handful of characters that people have ever heard of in the X-Men ranks (what...ten maybe) lose them? It is preposterous.
 
i said tag just because he has the stupidest powers ever and no one will vote for him and its just grand that he lost his powers because they are lame.
 
Magneto is on the cover of NA 20 and while that doesn't guarantee he'll actually be in the comic or have his powers, chances are, he is going to have them.

I'm going to miss Chamber just because the more I find out about him the more I enjoy him.

I have a theory: When Wanda tried to wipe out the mutant population, Dr. Strange was just about to cast a spell. I think we can all agree that his spell was intended to cancel her's out, but he failed for the most part. But honestly, I think Dr. Strange was trying to specifically protect the X-Men from Wanda's spell. That's why only a handful of the X-Men lost their powers. In theory.
 
Magneto will get his powers back - so I'll go with Jubilee!

Jubilee and Chamber are interesting characters and a lot more could have been done with them; why they're getting the shaft only Marvel will know. :(

Yeah, and that might be an acceptible rationale, but you would think there would be more "hmmms" going on with the X-Men wondering why they were spared this...downsizing? I don't know, it just seems like one rationale after another to cover up poorly thought-out ideas.

10,000? There were at least 10 million. The destruction of Genosha killed 16 million and that wasn't more than 2/3 of the total number. The whole idea is ******ed. One of the best things about Morrison's run was the "mutant-town" idea. Plus ca change, plus c'est la meme chose.
 
Definately Jubilee! She's the reason why I started following the X-Men in the first place.

even though she doesn't currently have her powers, she is going to appear/team up with Wolverine and Cable in Marvel Team Up #19, which comes out early April. Jubilee is also stated to be involved in the Wolverine: Origins comic. So even though she lost her powers, her popularity still allows her to appear in the comics.
 
CHAMBER is my number one missed powered character.

Along with most of all the depowered mutants like Jubilee, Moonstar, Feral, Thorn.

Can understand why Marvel depowered all the mutants so that they could control the mutant world more and stop soo many pointless characters from being created and lose plot endings.

Do like the idea of Magneto and Xavier being depowered now though.
 
Polaris is going to be in Uncanny X-Men soon or something so...I don't know what the heck is the status with her powers. Especially when Quesada has reiterated recently that the depowered mutants absolutely won't get their powers back.

I voted for Chamber.

I was just trying to come up with the lowest possible number that no one would argue. Besides, the point is still clear that the idea is ridiculous.
 
My vote goes to Chamber, I really wanted to see where his character was going before HoM. Next to M, he was my favorite Generation X character.
 
Maybe Joseph Calhoun will decide the world is now boring and simply reverse everything.

Quesada says whatever he thinks sounds best. He's so full of it. Remember his "dead is dead" policy? And now we have Colossus back with a terrible explanation, and being used as filler by Whedon... and we have Betsy back with no explanation at all.

And Quicksilvers already powered himself back up (even if the powers are different). I have absolutely no doubt that Mags is gonna get his powers back, and Xavier, and any other A-listers.
 
while mags was super botchin with his powers

i'd be cool to see him still support mutant rights as a human
