The 10 Most Bizarre X-Men

10. Longneck

10. Longneck

Longneck was born with an incredibly useless mutant power, the ability to elongate his neck up to nine feet.  Sure, it’s great for seeing over the crowds at sporting events or for spying what’s on the top shelf of the X-pantry at snack time, but it’s not much help in a battle. Alas, he’s dead now. Cause of death you ask? Well, he was depowered, and gravity snapped his elongated neck.  Ouch.

9. Cypher

9. Cypher

Before there was an app for that, Cypher could speak and understand any known language. While this would come in handy if he were backpacking through Europe, 99% of the villains the X-Men fight speak English. He is utterly useless in combat against Magneto!

8. Marrow

8. Marrow

Marrow’s bones grow at an alarming rate, and they do so in such a way that they jut out of her skin. Her fighting style revolves around breaking off these excess bones and hurling them at her opponent. While the grossness of her actions may stop villains in a moment of disgust, that’s about all they can do.

7. Beak

7. Beak

A prime example of mutation-gone-wrong, Beak has many of the physical characteristics of a bird. You definitely don't want Beak on your side in a fight, though. His odd weight distribution makes it nearly impossible for him to actually fly, and his brittle bones made him extremely fragile. As far as I can tell, Beak was only added to scare children.

6. Doop

6. Doop

Doop’s powers should make him one of the X-men’s most powerful allies. Gifted with super strength, flight, an accelerated healing factor, and the ability to store objects and people in an extradimensional space inside his body (Ew!), he would appear to be a force to be reckoned with; Except for the fact that he looks like a giant pickle. Plus, he speaks in a language that only he understands.

5. Maggott

5. Maggott

With two metallic slugs attached to his body, Maggott is able to eat through anything. Not only is his power lame, but it also causes him excruciating pain anytime he uses it. Digesting what he destroys does give him super strength and turns him blue, but he never does any real damage.

4. Choir

4. Choir

Though it would be a stretch to call it a superpower, Choir’s mutation gives her several mouths around her neck. Because of this, she can use her voice as a weapon. It’s no surprise that she didn’t last very long in the comics. Just try imagining a Choir lunchbox!

3. Skin

3. Skin

With a few feet of stretchy excess skin he can control, Skin got the short end of the stick when the writers were dishing out superpowers. He is basically Mr. Fantastic with significantly more restrictions. His skin can’t reach past six feet, and it is still vulnerable to attack. He looks like an alien who recently lost a bunch of weight.

2. X-Treme

2. X-Treme

Looking like he came out of a ‘90s Mountain Dew commercial, X-Treme has braided hair protruding from his backward baseball cap. On top of being ridiculous, he actually refused to join the X-Men. Fortunately, much like the trends he embodies, X-Treme all but disappeared after the Clinton administration.

1. Sharon Friedlander and Tom Corsi

1. Sharon Friedlander and Tom Corsi

While Sharon Friedlander and Tom Corsi don’t have much in the way of superpowers (aside from an undefined amount of superhuman strength), they were able to join the gang. Although, they were relegated to serving as  nurse and handyman, respectively. After being attacked by the Demon Bear, Sharon and Tom (two Caucasians) were transformed into Native Americans. Talk about being culturally insensitive!
