Back in 1975, the X-Men were revamped into a multinational squad of mutants with exciting new looks, weird feets, claws and some steel skin, and comics were legitimately never the same again.  Of all those new X-Men, the clear favorite of the greater audience is Wolverine, but I always had a soft spot for Colossus, especially when his blue pants disappeared when he turned to steel, leading to today’s homo superior query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) really thinks that my personal answer is Storm, but that’s entirely a subjective view, asking: Who is the best All-New X-Man of them all, and which phonetic accent do they have?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.

    I always liked how international this team was. herr Nightcrawler is great, so in Sunfire-san. But as a finn, I kinda had soft spot for our neighbor, Russian comrade, Colossus.
