Gambit, I can't believe he was not in the first x-men movies. That was stupid. He's always been one of my favorites. He just looks so awesome with his stick and the cards. Especially in Marvel vs. Capcom.

Chamber. He is supposed to be an Alpha level telepath and telekinesis guy. I think he was used as an underrated character and no one new how to properly use the tone of the charater. Plus he was one of the few that had a very obvious physical mutation.

YES!!! As I was rereading this thread (I originally voted Longshot) I began to think of Jono Starsmore...CHAMBER!!! Longshot is still very much underrated, but is given a shot to shine in X-Factor at least. Easily the best character in that series.

So now I'm going to have to go with Chamber! Former leader of Gen X, former member of X-Men (albeit for a very short time). And I loved the look of his character.

Have to agree, he's also supposed to be an Apocalypse clone now,
Spoiler: show
though he may be back to his old self depending on how you interpret the end of Age of X


I'd give a close second to Bobby, he's never lived up to the hype of being an Alpha level since around the time that Emma took over his body.

You know that is a great point that I had never thought of, if the whole thing was on a giant iceberg they could just move around instead of being in one place all the time.

I would have to say Colossus because I don't read the comic books but in the movies, he's barely shown but he is such a bad-ass. He can transform into a metal form. Plus, he's Russian.

not underrated but I've always found Cable to be my favorite x-men, probably just because the comic series Cable and :deadpool: has always been a favorite of mine

I would vote Nightcrawler personally, so much potential and yet sadly underused and underrated in my opinion. Plus he was visibly mutant and therefore couldnt fly under the radar, the awesome little demon!

Nightcrawler and Colossus, but Nightcrawler seems to have a decent fanbase so I'm not sure he can be considered underrated...

I really like Cable - though the latest series wasn't fantastic - really liked the time travelling mysterious nature of the character, great sacrifice when he died though - hopefully he'll come back some day!

Have you ever heard the expression "perception is reality"

Mastermind

He can create illusions to fool all 5 of your senses. It never translated well into comic book fights but think about what you could do with that power. The possibilites are endless.

I don't know if I fully jive with the interpretation of "under-rated" as "alpha-level mutant who is a frequently featured member of an x-team, but has never been shown eating the world / manifesting black holes / freezing the universe / destroying reality half as often as the in-continuity description of their powers might suggest they could."

I agree with Dazzler --- she has nice balanced powers, is fun, and is not brought in and used as often as warrants.

I think Cypher was under-utilized --- a well-balanced character, powers that have a lot of potential, etc. Anything can be viewed as a language. Konrad Zuse viewed the universe as a giant calculating machine (over-simpifying here); perhaps Doug could figure out what it is calculating. Or he could develop a Burrough's-style word virus. There is a deep and fascinating connection between ideas from physics, mythology and literary theory connecting language and reality. Sadly, Doug never seemed to rise above "he can talk to computers and read body language, oh and he's not worth **** in a fight."

His inglorious death at the hands of Dr. Moreau knock-offs was really unsatisfying. Everything following really focused on the "techno-organic virus" stuff (that STD he got from Warlock really seemed to define his character, which is sad).

I don't read the Ultimate books, but it looks like he was featured there, wasn't a mutant, and was killed off. AoA, killed. Geshem, killed. Exiles, killed. Is there any reality that can fully utilize the potential of Cypher to tell great stories?
