Which X-Men Were You?

I am the youngest of 8 kids, 5 of which were boys. So, I watched my fair share of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Video Games (when I hear Blanca's music in Street Fighter, I feel really tender). One show I remember watching every Saturday with my older brother Eric and sister Haley was X-Men. I get chills when I hear the intro music play. It makes me wanna get up and be awesome. Did you guys watch that show? I loved it. In fact, a few years ago, Chad surprised me with the Cartoon DVDs. One of the best gifts I have ever received.  I hate Cyclops, still to this day. I always had a crush on Gambit. And thought Saber Tooth was terrifying.


After we finished watching the episode, Haley and I would go downstairs and pretend to be X-Men. Eric would sometimes play too and he would be Gambit, Haley always got to be Storm which meant I only had Jean, Jubilee, or Rogue to choose from (because I didn't want to be a boy). Of course, any sane person would choose Rogue out of that selection. We pretty much just flew around the room and didn't do much else. Anyway, even now to this day, I would still choose Rogue if I were an X-Men. Especially if I had that huge hair and dope accent like she did in the cartoon.


Happy Thursday!

I'm whichever x-men gets to punch cyclops in the face. Also, I think Omega Red was like so freaking awesome. And Colossus? c'mon, so cool.

STORM FOREVER! (except for the dreadful Halle Berry version, shudder) I'd burn you all with my lightning.

Nightcrawler, who unfortunately only got one episode in the cartoon, but a sword fighting teleporter with a prehensile tale with a touch of a demonic appearance. It doesn't get much cooler than that
