Top Five X-Men Cover Appearances!

by  in Comic News Comment

Top Five Month continues (check here to see an archive of all the top five lists featured so far) with a slightly different list. This time, Iā€™m just counting which X-Men have appeared on the most covers of the X-Men titles (Uncanny X-Men #1-66,94-499, X-Men #1-207, X-Treme X-Men #1-46, Astonishing X-Men #1-25 and all the Annuals of those books).

Would the huge lead the original five have be enough to overcome the popularity of the All-New, All-Different X-Men?

HONORABLE MENTIONS

11. Gambit


Just had to note that he appeared a lot higher than I would have thought ā€“ above Professor X and Kitty Pryde!

10. Angel


9. Iceman


8. Nightcrawler


7. Rogue


6. Beast


Now, the Top Five!!

5. Jean Grey


And yes, I counted the Phoenix appearances as her. Even if you took those out, I think she might have more cover appearances than Beast.

4. Colossus


3. Cyclops


2. Storm


Storm and Cyclops were so close that I think you can basically call it a tie, but my count had her ahead ā€“ the modern trend of each character getting a solo cover really helped Storm ā€“ she had a ton of solo covers.

1. Wolverine
