|These are the X-Men I grew up with.|
I have loved the X-Men since I was a small child. I used to get up early on the weekend, back when cartoons were awesome (because let's face it, cartoons now are crap), and watch cartoons with my brothers. We would watch everything: Incredible Hulk, Spiderman, Batman, and X-Men.
There was something even then that drew me in and made me want to be special, to be one of the kickass female powerhouses. I even had my first ever crush on anyone (and it was a cartoon character!) on Gambit...still have a soft-spot for him (and I must say that while Taylor Kitsch is attractive, he did not do the character justice in the movie).
I read the comics, I watched the shows, I watched the movies, I watched the X-Men Evolution series, and I even own a book about canon. They have been a part of my childhood and my adult life (I dressed as Rogue for Halloween a few times and the movies are a must see for me...but so are most Marvel movies). I think having the strong female characters as a role model from a young age was probably good for me.

My favorite characters are Gambit and Rogue...though Phoenix was close and Lady Deathstrike always piqued my interest.
What About You? Who is your favorite X-Man character? What super power do you wish you could have?
